I love Kathy Reichs so this book is right up there among my favorites. It is my first audiobook of her stories and I will be back for more.
Her plots are always intriguing and exciting. This one didn't grab me like some have but it was very good.
Yes I liked her performance. This was my first book read by her. So far my favorite is Davina Porter but not everyone must be a master or mistress of complex dialogs. Ms. Emond was very good.
No. It held my interest and I will be listening to it again.
I liked that we got to see the softer side of John Rain. He winds up helping his friend in the Tokyo FBI and getting even with the other side for some of their bad works. I think the back and forth between Rain and his 'friends' made the story more touching. You keep hoping that he is going to change.
When Rain goes to the aid of Naomi, the dancer he met and ultimately gets injured himself.
John Rain of course. Barry Eisler is a good narrator. Who would think the author could also make the reading so good.
It made me sad in places because John Rain sounds so alone and sad and unable to do anything about his situation. I keep hoping.
Yes. I always like the audio version better. More interesting to hear the characters develop.
Charles was my favorite. I also liked the old man who died too. I forget his name. He was a good friend to Charles right to the end of the book.
No. I liked his narration so will be happy to listen to more books by him.
Yes. I always want to listen all at once. I like that I can go back and relisten.
I liked the way Lexi and Finn interacted and the way she became immersed in a murder situation with no intention of any of it happening. She seems to be a magnet for trouble as Slash says.
I wouldn't say on the edge of my seat but it did engage my interest and kept me wanting to find out more. I like that the story is about the characters and doesn't get bogged down with lots of extraneous stuff. A man disappears, Lexi is hired to find him, and then the story goes about that happening with some surprises along the way.
I liked everything about the book as usual. Perhaps when Finn and Lexi arrive at the brownstone and find out the location of their missing person is intriguing, especially when Lexi proceeds alone.
Lexi Gets Her Man! Always.
I enjoyed everything about the listen. I liked the narrator and thought she did a great job of making Lexi sound geeky as well as very, very smart. The narration is always my favorite way to read/listen to a book. I get the books in both formats Kindle and Audible.
Lexi, of course. The two hot hunks, Finn and Slash are a close two and three. Basia is fun and a good friend to Lexi so she is essential. The twins are her standby helpers. So, I guess I like all of the main characters.
I liked the scene where Basia and Lexi are talking about the cloning issue and the ambassador shows up with his gun. From there it all goes nuts and I loved the part where Slash arrives and rescues Lexi. I'm thinking I like Slash.
Geeks Are Fun!
Yes. I always like the audio better than print although I usually get both. The audio adds to the book with a good narrator and Kristin Watson Heintz is excellent.
I like all the references to Italy, the food, the lust of Slash for Lexi altho he doesn't act on it. His grandmother Nonna and just everything about it. It was a delight to see how Lexi could take the gun and act against every one of her instincts to save her friends. She is developing into quite a strong woman.
Her ability to make the accents sound real instead of fake. She is quite good at changing voice inflections so you know who is talking. She's not as good as Patricia Routledge but she's very good. I'd listen to other books narrated by Ms. Heintz.
Yes. When they are in the cave and the bomb is about to go off. Lexi and Elvis make a good team and it seems to be touch and go for a little while. I was pleased to see how it ended.
I loved that Lexi finally seems to come into her own. She and Slash begin a relationship of which I am glad because he is a terrific character. He is strong and loyal and always backs her up. She gets out of her comfort zone and tries different things. Always finds the hacker and treats him/her to her wrath which is usually fair.
Can't help but compare Lexi to Stephanie Plum and Slash to Ranger in that series but only in the character development. I love both series and will continue to read both. Lexi is smarter than Stephanie in that Lexi is a geek and knows all the electronics stuff. I love electronics.
She has the voice to convey Lexi's innocence and her smarts. sometimes her voice annoys me but that is usually when the dialog is annoying such as the over use of 'Jeez' and some other juvenile words but you must remember that Lexi and her geeks are older in age but not so old emotionally so that explains it. But over all Ms. Heintz is terrific.
It made me laugh out loud in parts but no crying.
Love, love these books. Keep them coming in audible. The Book 5 is NOT in audible. I would have bought it.
Probably just because I like the narrator and I like Eve and Roark. But, the story of this one seemed off to me. The killer talked more than usual to self and I didn't like the way the killer acted. I still like the series but this one just hit me wrong.
Yes. I didn't figure out who the killer was but as the story progressed, it just kept unraveling until I began to not care since I was sure Eve would figure it out. It didn't have as much mystery as earlier books. Still good but everyone seemed harder.
When Eve came home and punched out the new droid. It's always fun to hear the exchange between Eve and Roark....no matter what they are doing. Take care of my cop is one of my favorite lines.
Only reaction I had was that I wasn't sure I liked it. Hard to explain why it hit me that way.
The narrator was good and made the characters interesting. I don't guess I care for fantasy like this. I bought it because of Diana and her son but it isn't a story type that I like.
No. I think most of my friends would not like it.
I liked the sorcerer but really none of the characters grabbed me. I found that it didn't really matter to me what happened to any of them. I was glad to see the dragon didn't die.
Nothing extremely good or bad. I'll try another book by Sam Sykes.
It was good but I was happy for it to end. I got tired of Odd Thomas and his attitudes. That is a compliment to Dean Koontz who embued him with that strong moral streak.
When Odd came to grips with his purpose and realized he was moving down a path to his destiny.
Yes. I liked the narrator very much. He gave the correct voice to Odd and the other characters.
Yes. I almost did finish it in one day but had to stop until the next day. I find this of all books written by Koontz. He grabs the reader with his first line and doesn't let go.
I loved the quirky characters. Every word written was perfect for the situation. How abortion and the pros and cons can be presented without judgment just made it better. Homer is conflicted but Dr. Larch finds a way to make him of use.
I'm not a book reviewer but this book has everything, humor, sadness, death but even turning that into good. His characters have a strength not found easily. It reminds me of Ken Follett Century Trilogy and Wuthering Heights. Irving is a gifted writer.
This was my first book by Grover Gardner and I liked him. Wish he was narrating all of Irving's books.
Yes, it had me laughing out loud at times like when Wally socks Homer for his continued use of saying "right" to everything. This book has it all, love of a parent, a child, the nurses care of the orphans, the responsibility of different sets of rules being applied at different times. It is very complicated but so are the issues discussed. You hope all along that Homer does what is right for all,and ultimately he does.
This is a book that should be required reading by every high school student. A way to,make us think about huge issues but in a rational way. Someone must be available to help women.
