i love the adrien english series....
the mystery is there... and adding the "romance" of protagonists
it works....and the purple prose is non existent!
I haven't heard him before, but I really hope Mr. Patton does all the Adrien English series. It was outstanding--especially his characterizations of Lisa, Claude and Jake.
I love Josh Lanyon's books, and I was so excited to see the audiobook for this one (makes washing dishes and walking the dogs much less boring)!
It always takes a bit to get used to a different reader, but once I started listening I was hooked. Now I can't wait for the rest of this series!!
Adrien English wants to write mysteries not live them out, but fate has decided that he needs to be in the middle. Friends are murdered, mayhem happens and the cops think it's Adrien himself. Detective Riordan is as straight as they come........or is he? So who can Adrien trust in finding out who really killed his friends, and without getting killed himself?
All 5 of the Andrien English mystery/romances rank among my top 20 favorite audiobooks.
The second murder by the person in the skull mask was daring and well-paced.
Mr. Patton brings a clear personality to each of the characters based on the verbal cues written by Lanyon.
The narrator is phenomenal! I was occasionally frustrated with the main characters but in a fun way! The tension between them was great. The mystery was good and had some surprises!
Yes...There were frequent twists in the plot.
Yes! I love the various voices and his inflection. He does an amazing job!
Adrien, of course...I would want to knock some sense into him about Jake! LOL
Well worth the time! I've already read book two and on to book three.
This is appalling gay drivel. I put up with this pap for an hour and couldn't stand another minute. It's so awfully, awkward, painfully, pathetically, theatrically GAY!
Shame on Audible for not making that clear in their description of the 'book'.
I think gay's will like this even less. Every gay man doesn't fancy every man he ever meets and assumes they all want him. Yuk!
I'll be asking Audible for a refund.
The mystery kept me guessing and entertained.
Yes, but a small warning about the connections of the main characters.
I have not, but i did enjoy his performance.
Memories, Suggestions, and love.
I must have mis-read overview. I thought I was going to listen to an light mystery. Too explicit and not what I would ever choose.
It took me a while but I finally 'read' my first Adrien English mystery! I'm not sure why I waited so long particularly with all the rave reviews about the series. And really, being Josh Lanyon, it was always going to be a hit!
I say I 'read' the book because I actually listened to the audio version from Audible. I do own the Kindle version but when I saw that Audible had the first three books for only $1.99 each I could not resist. It was one of the best decisions I have made - I was totally prepared to Whispersync back to the written version but found I LOVED the audio version.
The story is narrated by Chris Patton who did an absolutely fabulous job. Yes, he had a wonderful, quality story to work with but he so totally did justice to the book! His voice and style seemed to match the story and he lent a perfect voice to Adrien. His strength is his ability to perfectly capture the emotion of the story and I loved the way his inflections and tone replicated what was happening. For example, if he narrated the words "he grumbled" then the dialogue was actually grumbled. Dectective Riordan had a deeper, sexy voice and even the women were well done - Lisa, Adrien's mother being voiced fabulously!
I really enjoyed the whole story and the mystery. I liked the descriptive style of the story and loved Adrien. Maybe a touch more romance wouldn't have gone astray but with another four books to go in the series, I am sure it will get there!
