I have read most of his books and I really love them all. This one is no exception! I highly recommend this book for it's entertainment value as well as it's nostalgia...you feel like you are Nell's best friend. Excellent narrator.
the story itself is just okay...some parts of it were not believable, but the biggest downer for me was that Kate Reading as the narrator made me think that Kay Scarpetta was reading to me. If you have listened to Patricia Cornwell's books that star Kay Scarpetta then this will be odd for you to listen to. The voices of the male characters sound much like the mail characters in the Cornwell books and the voices of Ulf and Mansur sound like mice. sad. I really loved the first book in the series and will listen to the third one but I'm not impressed with the narration.
I could not even finish listening...it got to the point where it was an insult to my intelligence. If you like soap operas, you may like this book. You want to like it but the story is so NOT believable that you can't. Characters become unauthentic and you feel like you are watching a soap opera...which I can't stand.
I really liked his first novel and I liked the second one until the ending (which got a little unbelievable)...but this book is not a good one.
starts out a little slow but very much worth the wait! highly recommend to all audiences.
loved every minute....highly recommend!! The narrators were excellent and the story is not to be missed.
