Twists and turns
Very exciting with multiple plot twists. She keeps you wondering just who the villain is and then, just when you know, she throws in another twist.
Joyce sounded like the Anna Pigeon I always imagined and her character voices are really on the spot. I was never lost wondering who was talking.
When Buddy appeared on the scene, I felt the joy.
You will like the book. Minimal dialogue, excessive filler.
Even though this is an
The performance was good, just the material to work with.
Will listen to Blind Descent and Super Death again to get this out of my mind.
Wayyyyyyy too much about human excrement. A prequel to other Anna Pigeon books, Anna learns to love nature by being imprisoned naked in the desert. Sounds interesting? It's not, unless details of bodily functions are your thing.
After this book, I'd be loath to listen to anything by Barr again. I DO recommend her earlier books and have bought, begged or borrowed all previous Anna Pigeon mysteries.
The performer did well with the material provided.
After loving Nevada Barr books for years, I am sorry to report that this book didn't have any redeeming qualities. Save your pennies.
I have not read/listened to these books in order and it appears that does not matter. each so far, has been able to stand tall on its own. This one blew me out of the water at the end. Found myself thinking I had it all figured out but, nope. I sure didn't! If you are a Nevada B arrive other Anna Pigeon fan, this is a MUST read!
It took some time to adjust to the new narrator and her mispronounciation of certain words.
My favorite part of this book was the firm stance it took on sexual assault never being the victims fault. Nevada did good!
A must for any APPR fan.
Well Narrate. I got used to Ms. Rosenblat, I like Ms. Bean's work as well. But also, Wow! The beginning, the Prequel. How'd she end up so badass? Well, it wasn't easy. Also, I'd just like to hang out with Anna and Jenny. Sexual tension aside, someone as smart and with as much bad-ass-potential. Fun listen. Hard to turn off. So many spots where I was tensing for a blow! Crazy Tensr!
The book goes into a new life or death story before finding out who the villain was in the first story. Inconsistenciess in the story line.
I never did listen to the end. I got bored after the second life and death story. So unbelievable!
Yes, her narration was good with her different voices.
"I believe more women should carry guns. I believe armed women will make the world a better place." ??? I'm not a fan of action thrillers that have political agendas packed into them.Also, not having read/listened to Nevada Barr's books for a few years, the more recent ones seem to have quite a bit of raw, naked & rape violence in them.
