This is a very slow book. The narrator did a good job with the story but I believe this is one of the weakest books written by the Johansens.
The main character is very hard to like. I'm all for a strong, lead woman character but this one borders on a b#tch with a huge chip on her shoulder.
I'm on the fence. Some parts were good, others were a bit melodramatic
I don't think I have. Her performance was good.
It wasn't a waste of time but there are other books out there that would have been better.
This book's premise did have potential. A former blind girl with enhanced senses, helping solve crimes. Sounds great, doesn't it? Nope. I kept reading hoping I would start to like her. Never really happened. In fact, by the end of the book I couldn't stand her. Some of the writing at the end of the book didn't help with the over-the-top melodrama (picture those old, silent movies where a guy gets shot and then swoons around in circles 2 or 3 times with the back of his hand to his forehead, before he dies). Unfortunate.
I purchased this book because of the Narrator. I am enchanted with the voice of Elizabeth Rogers and her ability with NE USA accents. Waiting for another Archer's Beach book to show up. The is about observing details to solve crime. So, one scene in the book really bothered me and clued me to more places where the writers really needed to pay attention. The protagonists went out into a 110 degree desert without water, had a gun fight then stood in the heat an hour and a half more answering questions to authorities. No mention of discomfort or need for water. Ummm, Not! The book pays close attention to visual, auditory and even aural clues but almost none to the senses of the skin and environment. Still, it was an OK story If I were an editor, I would have sent the manuscript back for re-working before publishing. I may read next in series because it has a higher customer rating. Perhaps they have worked out such issues. I'll have to read some to find out.
It was a good suspense novel, so I was always excited to listen to more during my commute.
I thought having a main character who had super enhanced senses because she spent most of her life blind was an interesting concept, thought not necessarily entirely believable.
narrative was average but really really good story. mystery is very detailed and characters have depth to them
Possibly. My friends think I'm a little weird listening books on my ipod, so probably not.
The story was about my biggest peeve - people trying to control other people. It made me angry. Everyone was trying to control Kendra - just because THEY thought she should do what THEY wanted her to do.
Elisabeth's performance was excellent. She showed exceptional emotion at the most emotional parts. It was her performance that kept me listening.
No. I don't need to go to the movies to get angry.
