I like the narrator's voice it was easy to listen to.
The end was great, and quite a plot twist. It had me fooled!
Yes I would have liked to have the time to do so.
Absolutely! I usually listen to a book until I fall asleep. This one kept me up.
I always enjoy the relationship between Jane and Myra.
It was as if she really had been there, involved in the plot.
I am an emotional person where stories about children are involved. I worried about them and could barely wait to find out if they were safe. Their experiences were so horrible yet they kept going.
I really loved this book. Best I have read in a long time!
The narrator was the best I ever heard thus far with differentiating voices...wonderful job!!!
I don't think I really had a favorite character, maybe Mora...
I also don't necessarily have a favorite scene...maybe the segue into the climax.
No, I did not have an extreme reaction to "Last to Die."
I really enjoyed the plot and narrator differentiation. Ms. Gerritsen made sure that if something was implied, she'd make it very clear shortly after. I personally didn't think it was necessary to do so. The readers are intelligent enough to make inferences that they feel comfortable with without further explanation(s). On another note, this is definitely a real mystery. I had no clue who the killer was or why the killing was transpiring until the near end.
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.
Tess Gerritsen is a very good writer. This story is well developed with nice twists. Tanya Eby narrates this book very well with nice separations of characters.
I really enjoyed the book, it kept me in suspense until the end, which I won't tell, because other's may want to get the book, but the plot was great, the narrator was O.K. it's hard to get the perfect narrator, sometime's you just got to go with who the person is, take's a lot of concentration, to keep up with everyone...but I would suggest the book and I will probably listen to it again...it's a keeper
A waste of ink, paper, and time!
An unfathomable story line, the most spectacularly boring monotone narration make listening to this story an exercise in tolerance.
A reliable author like King, Koontz, Sanford or Patterson.
Not in the foreseeable future.
My wife loves the Tv show based on these characters, and occasionally I find it amusing.
I bought this book to listen as we drove from Ohio to N Carlolina. About forty minutes into this one, my wife, who loves the female authors, moaned "Please turn that off!"
Of the fiction I've listened to, this one is among the top. Tess Gerritsen has the ability to catch your attention immediately, and keep you listening right to the end.
I love that "Rat" was back. A young orphan from one of the earlier Rizzoli and Isles books - it was lovely to have him included in this story. The author's ability to create memorable characters is really good. Although I'd listened to many books in between this one and the previous; I immediately remembered him.
I love the way she changes her voices and tone. She made the narrative so easy to understand. Her timing and tone also changes with the story line. Very professional performer.
There were a few. It's a thriller so you are often moved by a tense situation. There are also enough real or tender moments - such as when Rizolli's parents have their conflict - that make it feel more realistic. I found that I identified with those times as much as the good ones.
I'm often disappointed by authors when their series get to the fifth or sixth book. Sometimes it feels as though the characters are worn out and there's nothing new to learn from them. With Tess Gerritsen and this series - that is not the case. Her characters are well-rounded and believable and the narrative is not predictable. Your attention is hooked and you will listen as it unfolds with growing interest. A great read!
First of all, the reader was terrible. Her Bostonian accent for Jane Rizzoli just didn't work and grated on the nerves. The story moved along pretty well until the last quarter .. It was like the author didn't know how she would end it and then just pushed an ending together and well, it was quite unsatisfying. I guess it was supposed to be a "surprise ending" but in fact it was just a disappointing one. In fact, I don't think I ever really understood the reason behind the murders .. oh well. I guess the author is getting tired and certainly the reader isn't worth looking for more from ..so off to find other books to read
Yes, but I would recommend reading it, not listening to it.
She was awful! In trying to lower her voice to a masculine level, she made all of the men sound like dummies, not to mention making an astrophysicist sound like Howdy Doody! What ever possessed the author - who writes these terrific Rizzoli & Isles books - to allow her story to be pulled down to this level? It was hard to listen to.
There IS a TV series :-)
