Typical cat lady: lazy, sings off-key, craves spicy bloody marys.
I was really enjoying the performance and story, eager to hear more each day when I reached "the end of a part but not the end of the audio book." When Part 2 unfolded, however, I thought I had skipped to a completely different story and had to double check I was still listening to "Bleed For Me." Not wanting to give anything away, I'll just say the characters seemed to take a U-turn and behave as if they were different people. Things got confusing and, for me, the novel no longer had the verisimilitude to keep me listening.
Gripping, real, intriguing
When Joe beat up Gordon Ellis, the descriptive wording painted a complete picture in my head. I could feel the anger and frusration he was feeling and could imagine every moment.
I would have listened in one sitting if I could have.
I think I got this one because I'd read Robotham before. His character's struggle with Parkinson's adds a twist to his books in the series. In this case, the trouble knocked on his door....
The story, characters and narration. I didn't know it was part of series until after I listened to it - very well written.
Yes - there was never a dull moment. As the story developed I was more and more hooked. And as I neared the end I still didn't know "who did it". Its always a good book for me if the author can keep me guessing.
No but I can't wait to start the series from the beginning - the narration went along with the story very well.
I have to admit that I'm a total Audible junkie. MUST have book going at all times. I may be the subject of a family intervention someday.
What a terrific storyteller Michael Robotham is - suspense novels don't get any better than this. Sean Barrett is one of the best readers around, giving voice to a wide array of characters with distinction, clarity and just enough restraint to give the listener a seamless, cinematic experience. This series reads like a great set of movies. I agree with the critic who expressed the hope that Robotham will write quickly. On to the last in the series for me, and then I'll have to wait for another-
I guess I didn't realize this was book 4 in a series - I never read (or listened to) the first 3 books, but I didn't feel I missed anything either. The story was excellent and Sean Barrett did a superb job with the narration. I will look for other books by both this author and reader.
I really enjoyed this one. Usually it takes me a good hour to get into a book, but this one had me hooked from start to finish. I was able to get completely lost and felt like i was watching a movie! Intriguing story and very realistic, suitable narration.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Bleed for Me... a very different book. A great story interwoven very interestingly.
Who needs the mall?
Yes, because I was able to enjoy the story while performing a multitude of tasks. Occasionally, I nodded off listening to Sean's calm and relaxing voice.
Vincent Ruiz was absolutely terrific. Smart, tough, funny, and sympathetic.
That little twist of humor in his voice.
Joe consistently allows his teenage daughter to crap all over him. Every time he let another twist of the knife go by without comment, I lost a bit of respect for his character.
Don't make the same mistake I did! Read the books in proper succession!
