how sad after so many years to develop scarpetta, her history and her stories, for cornwall to to turn her into a furious toxic, angry character and this book was like being jackhammered for hours upon end. i realized the story and the character were making me feel sick...in fact, every major character we have come to know over the decades has become toxic...quite a feat. no more cornwall for me.
Fool me three times and I'm done. after years of loving this series I gave it one more shot after last two duds. mistake. Either someone else is now writing the books, or someone else SHOULD be. No charm, no point, and embarrassing focus on conspicuous consumption of jets, hangars, luxury goods that made me cringe. Tragic whimper of an end to a once beloved series. Keep your happy memories of early Stone Barrington. (Tony Roberts' narration wonderful as always - is he ageless?? Which just made me sadder) a cynical return to a now-dry well...
AND apparently self REVIEWED....author compares self to Grisham. single worst quality recording...in a bathroom???...and narration EVER. DO NOT BE FOOLED. I have respect for authors who try to make their dreams come true, but I want to know when a book is self published so I can choose to make a decision. LISTEN TO SAMPLE before buying...
Best book since THE HELP???? Nuts! This is not literary fiction, a pleasant story in a nice locale with a gratuitous bit of hollywood that is a very small part of the overall plot and not particularly compelling. It IS better than lindsay lohan on lifetime:) but THE HELP?? Be aware that neither Sissy Spacek nor Octavia Spencer will be signing on for this one.Maybe the most misleading blurb I have ever seen on audible so just wanted to give fair warning (and I wanted to LOVE it)
Always skeptical, usually disappointed, have tried them all and am delightfully surprised by this simple, beautifully thought out listening experience that does not require headphones...will absolutely get more in the series and hope she has/does one on procrastination! But I didn't procrastinate about writing an appreciative review
Ok maybe not five stars in the grander scheme of literature, but I have downloaded so many stinkers lately and rosenfelt and this delightful series never fail..remember when stuart woods was good? This series has that feel
A good historical twist, a bit disburbing on the slavery issue if you want your lincoln unflawed, but a good listen. 'Nuff said
Well written, depressing as hell, quite gruesome, informative in a depressing way, if this sounds like escapism to you, bon voyage!...however, terrific narrator...
love dogs. hate dopey talking dog mysteries. rosenfelt's background in hollywood shows in this absolutely wonderful series. start at the beginning of the series if you can. and if you need a good story that doesn't pander but manages to make you feel better at the end, this is for you
after dreamcatcher, i thought i would never read another novel by stephen king. this is the work of a lifetime, full of heat and soul and narrated brilliantly...settle in for a long, long ride but you will be enriched for it at the end
Here is a sentence from the author's description of the female protagonist:
"Beneath her breasts, was the rest of her body."
. . .that should be warning enough.
