Listen to all kinds, but mostly enjoy witty light-hearted entertaining reads. Stay away from romance novels & books with heavy violence.
Great story, characters, and narration. Definitely will listen to it again at some point . It kept me interested throughout the entire story and had a good pace. Some bad language, but that was about it - no graphic violence, no rape, and no coitus. My rating 14+ just because of the language and references to the female anatomy.
Unfortunately a lot of people don't realize the impact of foul language on their own lives. They pick it up from what they read and hear. So if foul language is what you enjoy, you will thoroughly enjoy this book. Fair warning though, there was one whole chapter without one sentence without the F word, MF, and C word. I can't hear the story for trying to ignore the language. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get past it.
The story was interesting, but of course I didn't finish it, so I can't tell you if it turned out to be an intellectual finish or just so-so. I wish authors would heed the reviews they get.
Obviously, the author knows how to write not only a good plot but interesting dialogue and characters.
I enjoyed this book because the main characters - other than the celebrities - were people you could meet in your everyday world. I don't read about 'big stars' in the film, music or fashion industries but still found view into those worlds interesting.
The narration was well done
Look forward to reading the next book in the series.
Very Interesting Characters.
I am 99% done with this book. I really like it. I did not realize it was the first of a series. I am very pleased that I will get to follow the two (I think) main characters into another book.
I can't always understand British readers, but this performance was so clearly spoken that I had no trouble at all. Even Cockney phases were perfectly clear to me. Made a great story even more enjoyable.
Great story very interesting! The twist is quite twisted. The protagonist is very relatable and likable to the reader. The performance is fantastic with the different dialects
Christian, Texan, electrician, lover of reading-I lean towards Sci-fi/fantasy but enjoy the classics, history, and science titles also.
I entered this one knowing it was Rowling. In fact it's really why I gave it a shot. I knew it was a who dunnit novel and not a fantasy but I held it up to a higher standard anyway. Unfortunately this private eye story is cliche, middle of the road, predictable, and completely forgettable. If anything, it falls just short of center.
I will not read another in this series but I also do not wish to write "Galbraith" off either.
The narrator did a fine job. I enjoyed his performance and would listen to him again anytime.
I understand there is a follow up called Silkworm. I however, am not interested.
I wonder how the author actually thought a slovenly one legged bastard son of a washed up rocker would make a good hero or even an anti hero.
Well-written story that sweeps you along, with wonderful characters and bits and pieces that layer and steadily connect. Excellent performance, lending rich voice to the characters. I will be using my credit for the next in series.
Above all, the narrator (glenister) elevates this already fantastic book. The vocal characterizations were spot-on, and at times hilarious, conveying deadpan to shrill histerics and everything in between. Granted, he had such rich material to work with. Rowling/Galbraith can bend all of English to her will, and it's mesmerizing to listen to. I feel I could have jumped into the middle of this story and melted the literary wall between us (you know, if I actually tried). Her descriptions were vivid, characters flawed, and interactions naturally awkward. Worth the listen!
