This was my first Karin Slaughter novel. Her character development is unmatched and the story telling was mind blowing. I really enjoyed Kathleen Early's narration delivery. Outstanding! I just purchased 2 more Karin Slaughter audio books. I'm a new raving fan!!!
I don't know, I can't get past the first 2 hours because the narration is so bad.
I've listened to a lot of audiobooks over the last couple of years and this is the worst performance I've been subjected to in this format. Kathleen Early got into a very lazy, monotonous rhythm and inflection pattern that frustrated me intensely. I couldn't get into the story because the narration was so irritating and disconnected. I hate to be rude here, but I want to spare other readers from this book. I'm actually shocked to see that other people have rated the performance so highly. Honestly it's as though Kathleen Early received no direction or feedback at all while she was recording, and just basically phoned it in by reading the words out loud. Horrible.
Yes, it inspired me to stop listening to it.
It wasn't clear in the description that this was a book in a series. I normally stay away from series and wouldn't have bought it had I known.
When I read the book description I couldn't wait to listen to this book. When I started listening to it I assumed that it was just going to be slow and the action would pickup. After a couple of hours and several time jumps I was bored and confused and gave up. The only thing that is criminal about this book is that I wasted a credit buying it. Don't waste your time or money on this book.
Apparently everyone loves this narrator but me. I am finding her so irritating that it interferes with my ability to enjoy the book.
She puts emPHAsis in THE wrong plaCES and it drives me crazy. She's trying to read distinctly, I know, and I appreciate that, as it's much better than the mumbling some narrators do, but the emphasis is just distracting.
If I "read" any more of Slaughter's books, I will do so in print.
Great story. Best to read this one after you've read the previous in the series. It wraps up a lot of unanswered questions. I didn't see the end coming, but it made sense, it just worked.
Great background into the history of Will, Amanda, and Evelyn (Faiths mother). Explains so much. I think this is my favorite in the series so far!
I am a wife of 30 years, mother of 4 wonderful grown children and a retired teacher....one of my new goals as I turn 50 this year is to become an author! I listen to one story on audible a week I am an addict!
This book ties together Will's past and present in a tale that keeps you guessing essentially to the end. One of Ms. Gardner's finest books in this series, it brings back the glass ceiling experienced by female cops in the 70s, and finally shows much of why Will Trent is the enigma that he is.
This book is best if read in order of the series, but it is good even without doing so.
