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.
Very monotone. Poor inflection of the different characters.
I have been a fan of Patricia Cornwell for years, and was excited to see a new book coming out. I was dissapointed beyond words. When I start a book I finish it, but this was difficult to finish. The excitment and mystery of previous novels was completely gone. It was VERY repetitive.
I have read and listened to many, many of Patricia Cornwell's books and used to snatch them up the minute they hit the stands. But then they started to deteriorate. This certainly falls into that category. The passion between Kay and her co-workers is luke warm at the very best. They might be talking about Marino or Scarpetta or other familiar characters, but that is just it, they don't feel familiar. Although the plot line is fine, the book just feels like something to kill time with.
Scarpetta's stories are starting to drone...dark, sad, complicated. I used to enjoy them but Ms. Cornwell is starting to lose me.
Part l of this book dragged and was going nowhere fast....too much dialogue with two characters.
I would prefer to listen to something more fast paced in the crime/courtroom genre
Another reader with more inflections in their voice
Disappointed in book but I liked the ending
Another novel from Patricia Cornwell that ends so quick you think you missed something. She goes into excruciating about Kay's thoughts and feelings and the story just loses any purpose at times.
I've listened to pretty much all of the Patricia Cornwell books and the more recent ones almost give the impression she's going to miss her deadline and has to end the book.
No. Just this author.
They were all fine.
The unending inner monologues that Kay goes through.
Put as much substance into the end as other parts of the book.
