Nesbo's mysteries are always intricate and unpredictable. There were a variety of interesting characters in this one.
In my opinion, the narrator should be a younger-sounding guy who can do different voices. It's hard to tell who's talking.
The best read since "Rules of Civility", both by first-time writers. I long for another. The language is the key.
I was totally engaged in the story about dealing with the challenges of the Amazon. The tension of the scientific break-through made it intriguing, and the characters were also interesting. As is often the case, the ending left me unsatisfied.
Hope Davis brings out the personalities of the characters better than just reading the written word.
Not laugh or cry, but the the details about the creatures in the jungle were riveting.
The narrator was so excellent with the Southern accents that I can't imagine the story without her voice. Old characters sounded old, young ones young, and the black cook was so good, I almost laughed every time "she" spoke.
I don't want to give away the story, so I'll just say that the story was a melange of happy, sad, funny, traumatic, and tender moments. It's all about female bonding across races and ages.
What a gifted actress Lamia is! Every character has its own voice and is readily distinguishable. Listening to her was the best part of the story.
This is a delightful story that's not offensive in any way. There's no violence or profanity, just a touching story about a girl growing up and coming to grips with her parents.
Hurwitz has mastered the fast-paced thriller, though the end is a little weak in my opinion.
Hurwitz has a great imagination; I couldn't predict where the story was going.
Brick puts just the right amount of emotion into the narrative, though he mispronounces some words. That's irritating to an English teacher.
