Audio book lover, wife, mother to three boys. I listen whenever I'm alone and can put headphones in.
But it wont be my last!! Very good story. Didnt find myself bored through this one, in fact I found I couldnt wait to listen to this one. I have several books I'm lostening to at once and out of those four I was listening to, this one was completed first. Good stoey, not so predictable. Narrator wasn't horrible, actually was pretty good. Good story, good narrator. You wont be disappointed.
I have not read the print version, so I cannot compare.
I like Charlie. That woman has been through a lot, but she becomes more resilient.
The scenes with the little boy (forgot his name) especially when he played on the computer. All his scenes were important, and one in particular left me speechless. They weren't necessarily my favorites, but they solicited the most emotions within the story.
This book took me on a roller coaster ride. I cheered, laughed, and cried.
The narrator did an awesome job! I could feel the pain, tension, and drama in her voice. Ms. Potter is a master.
good book for mystery fan. performance was fun to listen to, giving good visual impressions of characters thru voices
when what i thought was "predictable" was not... nice twists
easy to identify with the characters and their conflicts. can hear the frustrations and fear
even if you think you know...you don't
Tell us about yourself!
This was such a great book.
It kept me guessing all the way to the end!!
The entire series is GREAT!
I ran out of credits and PAID for this book (that's how great the series is).
These are such great detective books and I even really like the narrator.
This book was ok for me all the way around. The premise was interesting - a woman approaches Detective DD Warren, explaining that she's going to be murdered in a few days, and she wants DD to have all the information she needs to find her killer. The woman, Charlene Rosalind Carter Grant, believes this because her two best friends were murdered the same day, one year apart. That day is fast approaching.
As interesting as it was, that part of the story didn't quite live up to the hype for me. I thought Warren spent too much time trying her best to discredit Charlene, and not enough actually trying to figure out who was trying to kill her. And there were so, so many side plots. Enough that I was having trouble keeping up with who was who and who belonged to which side plot. There was a string of murders she was trying to solve, a child molestation side plot, internet predators, DD's own life as a new mother trying to balance home and work, and another one involving DD trying to get through a visit from her parents; it was a lot for one novel. The narration went back and forth between Charlene's first person chapters and DD's third person. There were occasionally very short chapters which were some sort of instruction in how to kill a person and get away with it, presumably by Charlene's would-be killer.
Kristin Potter did a fine job with the narration. There wasn't anything stand-out about it, either positive or negative. I would certainly not shy away from anything else she narrates.
I did listen to it again--right away. I love a good thriller and wanted to be sure I remembered the details. It definitely puts you out of your comfort level.
I like Dee Dee Warren as a main character that I've followed through several books.
The narrator doesn't have enough change in her voice from Dee Dee Warren to the main character who is at the center of the story. I found myself questioning who was speaking several times.
looking forward to the next Dee Dee Warren in the series.
This is the first book I've listened to by Lisa Gardner. I loved this book. It started off a little slow, but picked up quickly with the suspense and character development. This was one of those where I had a few theories of where I thought it was headed, but in the end, wasn't quite on the mark... in the ball park, yes... but not quite on the bulls eye. As some other reviewers have mentioned, there are a lot of topics intertwined in this book, but I thought the author pulled it off nicely without confusing the listener. Every aspect of the story had it's place in adding substance to the climax and the author did a nice job of tying the loose ends in the resolution. I didn't find it hard to follow, and I found the story very suspenseful. At first it seems a little disjointed, but, like I said, the author does a nice job of braiding it all together and rather quickly you see how everything fits together. I highly recommend this book. I will be reading (listening) to more books from this author.
Find My Killer
Yes, it was a pretty good book. My 3rd by this author.
Kristen was pretty good. I would listen to her again.
Well, this is listed as a Detective D.D. Warren book and she is touted as this great detective, but Charlene pretty much solved most of this herself. She was the heroine and the protagnonist.
I did enjoy the twist and turns and did like being surprised about the antagonist. Was a good story.
This book is superb. I really loved everything about it. I found myself trying not to listen to it so it wouldn't end. Keeps you on your toes and guessing. Great read!
