Delusion in Death ranks very highly among all of the other audiobooks I have listenend to.
It's hard to pick a favorite character in this book, because the richly detailed characters are the lifeblood of the series. The main character, Eve Dallas, is an amazingly complex woman dealing with a past that would have destroyed many people. Her husband, Roarke, is equally complicated. There are many excllent supporting characters, all of which round out the great "ensemble cast" in the book. One of my favorite things about this book is how wonderfully I hear the characters evolving individually and in their relationships with each other.
Susan Ericksen is the perfect reader for these books. She uses distinctly different voices which seem to capture the personalities of each of the characters. I can't imagine anyone else reading these books. Another excellent book in an excellent series.
JD Robb is like a fine wine. She is getting better and better with age. Each book is better than the last and this one was AWESOME!! Keep em coming.
I enjoy these books and will probably buy another, but I am really at the point of read one, read them all!
I am married with a teenage son and run my own business. As I am visually impaired, audio books are my life.
I've liked all the series and they still come up trumps even after such a long running series. It's amazing how JD Robb keeps it going. This is my favourite series of all
I loved the entire book from beginning to end. Her writing style is perfect. It's like taking a very interesting but relaxing walk the way she leads you thur the storyline. Simply amazing. I just got done listening to it and am about to re listen to it. What a book. The narrator is perfect. The characters are perfect. I love how she weaves Roark into Eve's investigations. I am a huge fan of Nora Robert's romances but I think I like her "In Death" series so much more better. Rarely to I listen to a book straight from beginning to end but when I start one of these books I can't put it down. I have to know the conclusion. I hate to go to bed until it is done. A lot of romance writers have crossed over but she is the only one in my opinion that writes suspense better than she writes romance. I hope this review makes sense. I don't write many reviews because I tend to ramble however this book was just so interesting. I am all over the place with my emotions right now. I think I will go get another book in this series so it can download while I start listening to this book again.I hope anyone who buys this book off of my recommendation likes it as much as I did.
All of her books that I have listened to or read are just as good as this one. I do prefer to listen to them because the narrator is perfect for her books.I also like a lot of Suzanne Brockmann's books.
Everything. She is perfect for this series. JD Robb needs to have her under contract for every book she writes in this series. I have listened to a lot of books in this series and the voices become like family. I can picture them in my mind as she tells the story. It becomes a relaxing read. I have had narrators ruin my favorite books for me but not Ms. Ericksen. I will go see what other books she does, I really like her work and if you read my reviews you will see that for me the narrators can really break a review.
The entire book. It just carries you along.
I think I have said it all in my review. Well here's a nudge for the writers. When you get a narrator that works with the buyers stick with it. I love listening to books that have continuing characters that have the same voice as the previous books. Just a thought.
When I have time I like the written word. Hearing the books with Susan Ericksen reading feels like Dallas is telling the story.
I like that Dallas is growing through her past just enough so that she can grow more in the next story.
I have listened to 5 of Dallas' stories with Susan Ericksen. I enjoy listening to her.
When Dallas punched Stella in her dream.
I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
I love this series. Eve Dallas is such a strong leading character but she has many problems. The way she interacts with the other main characters gives so much depth to the character of Eve Dallas. I love Peabody too. It's time for her to marry her sweetie. I hope that happens real soon.
being able to listen to it through my car speakers by my cell phone
The complete story kept me on " pins & needles "
Her delivery was great
I don't really know I would have to think about this for a while
I love all of J. D . Robb's books as well as Nora Roberts
Thanks so much
Hearing the accents of the reader; how they were alike and different from what I had imagined.
How the reader brought each character to life.
J.D. Robb's books are meant to be read out loud, and Susan Ericksen is a fabulous narrator. Her interpretation of the "In Death" series is so believable that I find I hear her voices in my head when I read the actual books! That said, Delusion in Death is a very strong entry in the series. Readers/listeners new to the series should get a feel for the characters very quickly; Long-time listeners will feel like they're settling in with old friends. The storyline is strong, and the opening to this particular story is dark.
Summerset, Roarke's father-figure and live-in butler, has always been kind of a mystery, but we get inside his head in this book as he relives some scary moments of the Urban Wars that are running parallel to the mass homicide that opens the story.
She really brings these characters to life! It's easy to forget there is only one person reading the story. Her voices are so real that I can hear them in my head even when I'm reading the paper version of the book.
Yes! It was really hard to put away.
