We listen to a lot of audio books and the Andy Carpenter Series is by far our favorite.
Each book in the series reveals a little bit more of the "fringe" characters. It was great to learn a little more about Sam in this book. There are alsway enough plot twists to keep you guessing and engaged. You can't help but smile when the whole team get's back together with each new release.
I can't EVEN imaging another voice reading this series. Grover brings the perfect amount of sarcasm, wit and self deprecation to Andy's character. His voices are consistent across the series from Marcus' grunts to Hike's paranoia. Excellent reader!
This is a LAUGH OUT LOUD series! My husband and I listened poolside in Hawaii and when we got up to swim, a couple next to us asked "What are you listening to? You are laughing a lot!" We highly recommend this series to friends and family looking for a funny, entertaining and easy read/listen.
OCD over books, listening to 1 a day; ANY genre, fact & fiction. Influenced by Audible reviewers so I keep mine unbiased - FRONT to BLACK!
I fell in love with this series several years ago and ended up listening to all of the books available in audio format - back to back. However, the best way to really enjoy them is to do one every 6 to 12 months, so you forget why you liked the books so much in the first place! Once again, here we get a great crime mystery and likeable characters, combined with humorous writing and smart dialogue. Narrator Grover Gardner continues to provide the perfect delivery. I sincerely hope that when the two works in this series (currently not available as audiobooks) are recorded, the producers don't ruin the Andy Carpenter magic by changing narrators. Or, even worse - horror of horrors! - allow some "A-List" actor to READ (as opposed to NARRATE) the new books. A sure-fire way to bite this great series of man and mutt in the butt (pun INTENDED)! 😄
I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
Andy Carpenter is a dry wit and absolutely charming. This story isn't as strong as the others, and has some serious flaws, but I can read far faster than David Rosenfelt can write. I have enjoyed my time listening and would like again.
Give me a good mystery and I am happy!
I love everything about this series, the narrator's voice, the author's sense of humor. It is like candy for my ears. I am certain that I will always buy books by this author. I enjoy them immensely.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I love Andy Carpenter, he is so funny. The story was good, although it is basically the same story as the previous ones and if you have gotten this far in the series, you know what I mean. I will read Andy stories anyway, he is always fun. One thing I don't like is that he does the point of view from way to many characters and then kills them off. Love the narrator, he is Andy.
I am so entertained by the Andy Carpenter series, that I must have one book downloaded waiting to listen to, one in my library waiting a download and one in my wish list. Looks like I'm getting to the end, PLEASE NO!!! I love the mystery, love the humor and LOL at the dialog. This book doesn't disappoint.
