No. Did not like the narrator.
Yes and no. I think the book could have been less wordy. At times it was a little boring but that could also be due to the often monotone voice of the narrator.
Kate Reading was good as some of the male characters but very unemotional as Scarpetta, Benton and Lucy. The interaction between Kay and Benton was not believable because it was more like two strangers speaking.
The concern for the animals.
The pre-Kate Reading Scarpetta novels had great narrators.
Truthfully only listened to the first hour.... and I could NOT get into the story at all. I was so disappointed because I have loved Patricia Cornwell's other books. It was slow moving and I lost interest immediately.
I've read so many of her books... I would probably not venture into her books again. There are other authors I've found to be much more entertaining and stimulating.
Can't say... I could not listen to more than an hour before being so bored I just turned it off.
I was disappointd.
This book contains some an interesting story line, but it is loaded with so much minutiae that it becomes difficult to see the big picture. I prefer more about characters and plot than I do about autopsy details.
I have listened to Patricia Cornwell before and will again. This was just not her best book in my humble opinion.
Kate Reading does a good job with pages of details. I've not listened to her before, but I'd definitely listen to her narration again.
I would have ask the author to cut to the chase. The reader usually cares more about the characters and the twists than details that could have been excluded without sacrificing the science.
I really gave it a try -- just finally quit out of frustration.
I love Patricia Cornwell, and have always enjoyed her books. Kay Scarpetta is a complex, well written character, normally. However, I feel like someone else wrote this story. Horribly boring and a waste of time.
Yes, the story line was interesting, and the descriptions of scenes made me feel like I was there.
The narrator's voice was horrible. I have been an Audible member and supporter for over a year. This was by far the worst book I purchased. As much as I tried, I could not listen past the first 30 min.
voice of characters
The story was slow paced, the reader was poor and low. Hardly audible. I forced myself through the book. Thank goodness it is over!
EQUALE TO HER EARLIER BOOKS. LOST TRACK OF WHAT WE READ HER BOOKS FOR ON THE LAST 3. BUT NOW BACK ON TRACK. KEEP UP TH GOOD WORK.
NO I JUST LIKE WHEN SCARPETTA STARTS PUTTING TOGETHER THE PUZZLE AND FINDING THE ANSWERS. GREAT WRITING.
what happen to great story writting? Has Scarpeta gotten to old? or has Patricia Cornwell run out of ideas? It's a shame. Use to be so good.
By listening I could close my eyes and picture what I was hearing although I wouldn't have imagined some of the characters voices sound like that
I didn't like it
