The plot was interesting but the narrator used a deeper voice for the main female character and a higher pitched voice for the male. it made it a bit confusing to follow sometimes.
Apparently there aren't enough "normal" crimes to go around. A bad guy who kidnaps women and chains them in the basement isn't enough - no, he has to sew their eyes and mouths closed and sew them to the mattress for our titillation.
CSI and Criminal Minds suffered from the same arms war. They started out as excellent, compelling crime dramas, but several seasons in, each show had to outdo the previous. Each bad guy was more bizarre, more psychotic. I quit watching, and I quit Criminal half way through and won't be picking up any more Karin Slaughter.
Found myself putting it on in the middle of the night. Story line was good- a little long in the middle, but I understand the need for the background. Great narration!!
This book ties together so many things in the series. It's unbelievably brilliant how Slaughter has woven this web, this particular installment is the reason it all makes sense. Beautiful and dark!
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.
