Plot was intriguing, although sometimes it got bogged down because there are too many things going on at once. The ego of Kay sometimes gets in the way...everything is always caused by her acts or omissions, at least in her mind.
If you're driving in your car with nothing better to listen to, give this a try.
One of the least inspiring narrators I've heard. Mispronounced words drove me crazy. E.g., saline was pronounced
I've always loved PC's books, but I just don't like this reader.
I found myself drifting at times.
When Cornwell's books were narrated by C.J. Critt and Kate Reading they were fun, lively, and you really connected with the characters. With Kate Burton's monotoned narration you get none of that. I gave up after an hour; I just couldn't stand it any longer. The characters I had come to love over the years were gone, replaced with these boring drab characters. The narration in this book just ruined it for me, and as a result I never connected with the story.
The authors need to learn that narration is VERY important in audiobooks. It's like an extra, very important, character added to the book. It just stinks when they change narrators in a series because it changes the feel of all the characters. This is one of those cases where cheaper is not always better.
absolutely. i found this extremely interesting.
dr. scarpetta's relationship with morelli.
she was pleasant to listen to.
anything about kay and lucy's relationship.
in printed format
much. She sounded like a bitter, mean older woman and drained the life out of what was a pretty good mystery.
Red Mist was a disappointment with the narrator of the book. Very droll and lacking in flavor. Will have to read the book to see if Patricia 'Cornwall dropped the ball or it was just the narrator. Would rank RED MIST low on audiobooks that i have listened to, 2.
Not at this time. I will read the book first before deciding that as I quite enjoy reading the Kay Scarpetta series and Patricia Cornwall as an author.
The narrator was very dry and lacking any flavor in the reading. No emotion and structure was poor in the reading.
No which i find very disappointing. nothing.
No. Drawn out inner thoughts. Not enough action.
I couldn't believe the change in her style. I was disappointed so I could've cried. I had been a big fan.
I hope she changes back to fast pace interesting action.
another great story from Patricia Cornwell, but the audio quality was horrible. you can clearly hear where the sections were edited together....not smooth at all
the different accents werent very good - Jamie Berger ended up sounding like Marissa Tomei in My Cousin Vinny....so did Pete Marino for that matter
read the book - dont buy the audiobook
If Patricia Cornwell had tried to finish the book. The ending was horrible, it was as if she was bored and just decided okay, enough I am done, end the book now.
probably not. she has been showing little effort in the past two books
yes I would
it helped with the drive home from work
Patricia Cornwell please try next time!
This is a great new Scarpetta novel with plenty of twists and turns.
This narration is hard to follow. I agree with other reviewers that the quirky personality of Scarpetta is lost. Kate Reading did such a better job of capturing the characters, their personalities, and regional accents.
