Tell us about yourself!
The publisher's summary is on the mark with this one.
Karin Slaughter manages to have new scenarios, twists, and evils in every book. This is no exception. Will Trent and Sarah Linton return. While trying to maintain their true identities and relationship, they are each participating in their own personal stresses. It is difficult to tell who can be trusted and who cannot.. Eventually the two scenarios merge, but that does not mean that everyone is safe or that the crime mysteries are solved.
I really enjoy this series! The twists keep me guessing until the end. The main characters remain true as they face new evils.
Kathleen Early has this narration down pat.
Not sure about this one...certainly would recommend the previous books in the series, they were much better.
Not as smoothly written as her previous novels. Her Will Trent books usually keep me on the edge of my seat, never a dull moment. I found my attention wandering at times, which has never happened before while listening to this series. It felt a bit disjointed and too much time spent on characters' romantic musings and struggles. Couldn't sink my teeth into it, as much as I wanted to.
Not one in particular.
Less misunderstandings and emotional drama.
Hope Ms. Slaughter gets back into fighting form in her next Will Trent book.
I thought that listening to this book was time well spent, as I enjoy Karin Slaughter's books. I love all the characters in the Will Trent Series and enjoy understanding the methods and motivations the characters use to solve a case.
However, I found this book a bit far fetched and also not in line with the rest of the Will Trent Series. Will going under cover as a biker struck me as odd, as he has always been described as looking like an undertaker or an accountant, and yet he seemed to fit in under his cover just fine. I also did not like that Faith wasn't really part of it all. I also really disliked that Amanda Wagner - kick ass extraordinaire, takes no BS from no one - was suddenly depicted as a bumbling, computer illiterate fool.
I wouldn't want to change anyone's story ever.
The only suggestion I could make as a regular Audio Book listener and Karin Slaughter fan is that all her books should be narrated by Michael Kramer. The first Karin Slaughter book I ever listened to was Triptych, narrated by Michael Kramer, and he absolutely blew me away with his performance. His voice really captured the gritty and horrifically violent tone of the book, and his portrayal of all the characters - male and female - was flawless. I also liked how he managed to perfectly capture the Georgian Southern accent.
I have found that all the other narrators of Karin Slaughter's books, in comparison to Michael Kramer, really lack the right tone for these books that have such dark violence in them.
Expressive but boring.
No, I do not think Unseen needs a follow up books. For reasons stated above, I wasn't totally sold on this book.
Very good but just how lucky can one guy be. Will Trent must have 9 lives.
Again, start Karin Slaughter's series from the beginning and you will want to hear them all. I actually like to travel now since I can listen to her books. I opt to travel alone so I will not be interrupted with mindless chatter and can enjoy these books.
I love the Will Trent Story. Hope you do too. I listened to all of them in a two week time frame. Waiting for the next one. Narrator is great over time.
I have always loved to read. As a child my mom actually grounded me from books if I was in trouble. Noone can do that now. Yay!
One of the complaints I have seen from some about this series is that the mysteries aren't deep and gritty enough. And, it is true that many series are darker, more twisted, scarier. But this series is deeper in its exploration of the characters' personal lives. You will grow to know and love Will, Sarah, Faith and Amanda as you read the eight novels of this series.
Unseen offers the best of both worlds as its plot line is one of the strongest in the series. So, if you love character driven stories … you will love this series. And if you love more analysis of the crime this book in the series will likely please.
Love the Will Trent stories, and this one didn't disappoint. I almost didn't buy it, though, because I'm not a fan of Ms. Early's narrations, after gritting my teeth through a few of them. I can live with the monotone arc of her sentences, but I find it impossible not to be distracted by her over-emphasis of characters' names and by pronouns, even when they aren't the main ideas of the sentence, and I found it to be a major distraction in almost every sentence that wasn't dialog. I don't know why, but the over-emphasis problem doesn't happen when she's reading dialog lines. I felt as though I was tolerating the narration to get to the story.
Unseen was better than Criminal (which I returned), but I still don't care for the flashback style Slaughter has adopted with these last two books. Hopefully, she'll return to her previous brilliant style. As always, I loved the Kathleen Early narration.
Great Slaughter Character
I just love the character Will Trent. One her best. I like the innocence he has about him, even though he has seen alot of horror.
Yes, If I could
