No. I am a big fan of John Sanford's "Prey" series and was hoping the Virgil Flowers series would be equally as good. Unfortunately, it is not. The performance by Eric Conger is adequate but not in the same league as Richard Ferrone. Sanford's character development is also lacking, with the Flowers character being uninteresting and dull. All in all, not what I have come to expect from this writer. This will be my last Virgil Flowers series book.
Yes. The "Prey" series as read by Richard Ferrone is highly engaging with great character development and plot lines
It is a great read and if I listened to it again I am I sure I would be hearing things I missed the first time around.
There are many twists and turns and I loved the comedic pauses in the thick of things.
It moved quickly from one character to another.
My favourite character had to be the young pilot.
Loved the surprise ending. Never saw it coming.
This book is a slight departure from Virgil's usual mystery sdventure. It's a great romp and made me laugh out loud. Even his characters made me smile. A must read if you are a Flowers fan
Sandford did it again in my book. Simply love his style. Flowers is a lot softer than Davenport but don't let that put you off. Sandford gives Flowere's just as much brain power as Davenport. Good story great narrator all around good read.
I'm not that impartial, i enjoy this character so pretty easy to please, but i did enjoy this one a bit more than the last. If you've liked the other Virgil books, you'll like this one i think. Recommended.
No. He is enamel red with the words "fuck" and "god damn".
Only if the language is cleaned up
Intriguing story line
Interesting story line with lots of twists. You don't usually get an ancient artifact story in rural Minnesota. Plenty of interesting characters.
This is the third Virgil Flowers audiobook I've listened to. I just don't like Eric Conger as much as the narrator of Sandford's Prey series. The narration is just average. If you're from Minnesota, both Conger and Ferrone's occasional hatchet jobs on local place names will cause a chuckle.
Mature reader with a penchant for English mysteries and crime fiction. However, I do not care for gore and gratuitous violence.
Virgil Rocks Again
Hit Man by Lawrence Block. A good intriguing story interspersed with sly humor. Totally different types of books but the writing and stories are both great. Not too heavy and the "heroes" don't take themselves too seriously.
Dead on with Virgil; Conger is the voice of Virgil to me. He's also pretty good with the other characters. I think he does a good job with most of the other voices.
No. I like to string the good ones out because it makes is easy to walk and exercise while listening to a good story.
I love anything by John Sandford. His Virgil Flowers series hooked me from the first book. Never thought I could warm up to another Sandford character the way I did to Davenport, but I was wrong - Virgil Flowers is almost as fascinating and richly drawn as Lucas Davenport.
