Liked the story-the narrator was hard to listen to at times-like chalk on a blackboard with some voices
The book was good. I like this series.
Absolutely not!!! For most of the characters in the book her voice is so harsh and whiny it's so hard to listen to. I had to switch over to reading this book in some instances. I picked this to listen to on a road trip & it got so bad I had to turn it off. Like nails on a chalk board!!!
I will not be purchasing any more audio books she narrates.
This is an incredibly popular series. It did not do it for me. I did not like the writing style and the overly simplistic storytelling.
No, I love the genre, just not this author.
She did a fine job. was easy to listen to.
I found myself yelling at the radio.
It passed the time. Except for the fact that I'm pretty well committed to listening to all the books in the series, in hindsight, this is one I could have skipped.
I would like to see a murderer who is more smart and crafty than insane. I didn't buy the sudden cracking of the bad guy from a bumbling leach into a homicidal maniac. Even within the realm of suspending disbelief it was not convincing. And catching him was too easy. The obstacles seemed fabricated to mark time. I can't help but feel that Robb phoned this one in.
Peabody. Who else?
I'm neutral on this.
I haven't purchased the next book yet. Based on this one, I'm undecided if I will. This is unfortunate, since it's generally been a fun series to follow. I hate to suggest it should be retired, but if Robb can't pump some life back into it, perhaps it has reached or is nearing an end? (I would have liked to see Eve as a mother, though.)
Keep your mind active.
I have read/listened to most of the series and as always, they are fast moving plots light reads. There is always a decent mix of future high tech gadgetry with a good criminal mystery backdrop. I was a bit disappointed in this one. Not sure exactly why, maybe because of the immature whiny nature of the villain or simply the lack of anything new and exciting. Maybe because not as much time was devoted to secondary characters that readers of the series have come to enjoy. I will continue to read the In Death Books for now, and hope they get back on step.
70+, been reading SF since 1953. Vision is going so have switched to Audible.
Gets a little too graphic at times for my comfort level (thank goodness for FF). Overall series continues to be well written and satisfying.
I have not read the book. I listened to it. I would say that If it is verbatem, the audio is better.
The Lueitenant that was with Dallas.
The characters are alive with the use of her different voices. The feeling she puts into action words.
Jerry was a interesting character in the book. The writer does a great job in building his personality. She works the interaction between characters in building of his makeup, his thinking, his sickness. Very well written discription.
This women is a great writer.
I have either read or listened to every book in the series and this one is great. This one focuses on the hunt and the storyline is fast paced and the writing is tight. I love the continued character development and relationship between Roarke and Dallas. Susan Ericksen is a master when it comes to bringing the players to life, and I can't imagine anyone else reading this series. I stayed up till 3am to finish this one and didn't want it to end.
Among the top as any by this author that I have read/listened to
So far without a doubt the best Narrator of any that I have heard. Will be looking for more done by Susan Ericksen
The plot was so similar to others books in the series that it was predictable. Nothing new happened between any of the characters either. I would not rate this book as 4 or a 5 in terms of the plot.
I have not purchased the last available book in the series because this book was so similar to others in the series. Why bother reading the book when there is nothing new happening?
I love Susan Ericksen. She is the voice of Eve and all the other characters in the series.
Disappointment. I found myself skipping over the intensely violent scenes.
Don't bother to purchase this book.
