I've read a lot of Alex Delaware books throughout the years. I really loved the early books, but after a while I started getting tired of the series. I decided to take a chance on this new book and was quite pleased. Guilt was nothing spectacular, but a good listen. I will look forward to the next book. I think Alex is back!
I have rarely been disappointed in any books in this series. The plot pacing works will with the audio medium therefore I prefer to listen to this series rather that read it.
Most likely .
Possibly, I have often thought this series would translate nicely to the big screen. Depending on casting of the lead characters.
I haven't read the book so I don't know if the audio edition is better. I typically listen instead of reading.
I am a fan of the Alex Delaware series. This was not the best of the series, but it is a very good story line with some unexpected twists.
The end where the police contacted the husband of the movie star and his girlfriend opened the door with white powder on her face as did the husband. It's art imitating life having been in law enforcement myself.
No - even if I wanted to, I don't have that luxury. I do listen while I workout (sometimes), while I was traveling, before I went to bed and while I work around the house.
I very much enjoy Jonathan Kellerman and always look forward to the next Alex Delaware novel. I will wait for the next one in the series. :)
I am a closet hopeful novelist myself and love the twists that Kellerman throws in to each of his story lines. Just when you think you have it all figured out, something new comes along.
Reading an Alex Delaware novel is like having dinner with an old friend. It's just good company. I really enjoy the stories and the dialog between the main characters. This installment is just good entertainment Kellerman weaves a great story.
Love the Milo Characterization
When your protaganist is so perfect, the story becomes boring. If Alex Delaware had at least one flaw and more character. He is flat and one dimensional.
A better storyline with characters you cared about. The dog was more likable.
I like John Rubinstein's reading of the book.
No it was boring. Same old story.
Alex Delaware is Dr Perfect. He's the one who solves all the crimes. Won't listen to anymore books by Jonathan Kellerman as they are all the same.
No question that it is a fast and good 'listen'.
I do not think that Kellerman's works are edge of seat thrillers but thoughtful and tight pieces that keeps the reader (listener) glued.
Mr. Rubinstein is an excellent reader.
I prefer audiobooks as I drive a lot for work and also listen as I'm cleaning my house, doing chores and exercising.
This is a good Kellerman book. Alex and Milo have a great relationship, Alex's observations are always fun and I love me some Blanche.
Alex, of course.
This is a good Alex Delaware read. Fans of the series will not be disappointed in the latest chapter of Milo and Alex's lives.
I do not recommend this book. The plot is so excruciatingly slow to develop that I lost interest in the book, though forced myself to listen to the end. In the end, learning the conclusion, I found myself saying, "So what . . ." The problem with the book is too many disparate pieces that are not coherently linked. I can think of parts of the book now that seemed like a waste of time, even in retrospect. Too much minutia, gets bogged down. I would improve the book by cutting it in half and that would probably remedy the pace and allow the plot to thicken and conclude in a reasonable manner. All in all, on a 5 point scale, I give it the lowest rating of "1".
I would not judge him on this alone; but if this was the hallmark of his work and I knew that, I would not listen to his material again.
I think Rubinstein performed very well.
About half of the characters, leaving Milo and Alex D.
I am a fan of the Alex Delaware series and particularly enjoy John Rubinstein's narration. This current storyline was rather predictable and not very compelling. I still enjoyed listening to "Guilt", though it was not one of the better ones in the series.
The new Alex Cross audiobook
I look forward to the next book in the series, but expect a much more compelling story.
I would recommend this book because of the way it leads or better said misleads to the wrong conclusion,requiring you to listen closely.
