I've never read a print version.
I don't know, any other thriller.
The accents were good and the different voices sound good.
I was lost a couple times and had to replay to pick up on info that I missed.
This book was okay. The reader did a great job. I just wasn't impressed with the book.
This was my first.
If it was a movie, I wouldn't watch it. There were too many stretches to make the plot work. There were too many coincidences. Also, this was so formulaic that there were almost no surprises. The author gave so many obvious clues that it took away any mystery. This book was very dumbed down from some of her past work.
Loved the performance! Tanya Eby manages the voices so well that there's never a question of who's speaking - very nicely done! Enjoyed the story though maybe not quite as much as the others. The international espionage bit was a little too 'terrorist' 'homeland security for me' for me to choke down. On the other hand, the setting of EvenSong sounds like such a great place for troubled kids. I love Rizzoli and Isles - their stories have always kept me waiting for the next. Great job, Ms Gerritsen!
caught you early on....listened non-stop...never got bored with it. I can usually come close to calling how books will end...but this one took one extra twist I wasn't expecting...
Twist at the end
just wished it were longer
Tess Garritisen,s stories are usually full of twists and turns and this was no exception.
I prefer mysteries that don't tell you in the first chapter who the killer is. It's no fun knowing and then the story revolves around how the good guys figure it out. Gerritsen keeps you guessing right to the end.
If the narrators are going to do accents for a particular local, they should be able to do them well. Tanya Eby made the characters with Boston accents sound like anything but someone from Boston would sound to the point of annoyance.
great story - Tess put out another great book - i loved it!
the narrator has a lisp and I found it EXTREMELY distracting....i had to stop listening to the audiobook and go out and buy the hardback.
Whoever keeps hiring narrators with lisps needs to be fired.
I did not read the print version.
Excellent plot, lots of twists and turns. It keeps you guessing as to what happens next.
Very good reader. She knows how to bring out the emotions.
No extreme reaction but kept me glued to the speaker phones.
This is my first book by Tess Gerritsen. I will definitely try one of her other books.
RETIRED & LOVING IT.
SHEER ENTERTAINMENT, IT KEPT ME UP ALL 11 HOURS.
THE ENDING, WHICH YOU DO NOT SEE COMING.
NO, I DO NOT BELIEVE SO. SHE DID AN EXCELLENT JOB WITH THE SCRIPT AND MANY CHARACTERS. BRAVO!!!! AS WE KNOW NOT EVERYONE CAN DO IT.
THE ENDING, LOVE CONQUERS ALL.
USE YOUR CREDIT HERE, A GREAT MYSTERY AND A GREAT THRILLER. I HAVE FOUND FEW BOOKS THAT CAN DO BOTH IN ONE BOOK.
In the newest installment of the Rizzoli & Isles tales, Dr. Maura Isles is visiting "Rat", or Julian, her ward, at Evensong...where he's attending boarding school. She's supposed to be on vacation...but as always seems to happen, bodies just keep piling up around. It's strange enough that all the kids in this school seem to have been victims of some sort of major tradgedies in their lives, now bodies are literally dropping off the building? And to top it off, the last case she'd worked on before heading out on vacation, that of young Teddy Clock, has similarities to several of these kids up here at Evensong...Maura has to call her close friend and Police Detective Jane Rizzoli & fill her in.
Jane thinks taking Teddy to Evensong, where security is tight, and being up in the remote wilderness, will keep him safe. She has NO idea she is taking him into the nest of it...but she does know that there is SOMETHING about this case. Too many suspicious things ~ and too many coincidences can only add up to this all being connected. But WHO is responsible?
Fans of the Rizzoli & Isles books will be thrilled ~ we get to visit with Jane's sometimes funny, sometimes all too real family and catch up with her Mom & Corsack, & her Dad and brother. We get updated on Maura and Daniel Brophy, and while I had high hopes for more between her & Anthony Sansone in this book, we DO get some interaction and some tidbits...and something we're left to think about.
I LOVE this series! NEVER a dissapointment, every case is great...and the family dynamics & real life BS Ms. Gerritsen throws in just makes me love the series that much more.
Tany Eby truly brings these characters to life in audio...you can hear the Boston in the voices, the weariness in Jane's Mom's at times, the excitement in Julian's...I just love her narration! This series is a MUST buy in Audio for me!
LOVED this book ~ and am depressed that I'll have to wait so long for the next one already, lol.
I think the story has potential but I cannot get past the hideous accents that appear and disappear seemingly on a whim. I live in Boston. If Bostonians sounded like that, I would leave. Immediately.
