Unfortunately, I saw the movie first and really enjoyed it. I think the reader did as good a job as he could with this material. The character of Pat Peeples was just an idiot. He spoke and thought like an 8-year old. There is no way this man could have been a high school teacher before his "accident."
I love Titus Wellever. But he's no Len Cariou. Len is Harry Bosch. But it was a pretty good story.
I hate it when the narrators "ACT!!!!" Just read the darned story, already. The reader is talented but is really annoying with her cloying little girl voice of the "heroine" and the manly voice of the "hero." Yikes! And the plot is good in many ways, but they keep retelling the events from different perspectives but with the same details. It seemed like filler. I was hating it halfway through, but I stayed to the end.
If NPH isn't the nicest man in the whole world, you weren't listening. But I love him and hearing this in his voice was fun!
I imagine this reader is very good, but he is completely wrong for this type of story and it was maddening to have to listen to him acting.
I could not get very far into this book. The narrator, who I've enjoyed in other works, was awful! The story was weird and disjointed. I had to double check to see that I wasn't in part 2 instead of part 1. This was the second book in the series and it sounded good. But I don't have the patience to see if it's going to get even marginally better. I sent it back!
"See ya later, y'all." Charlaine Harris felt it was time to say bye to Sookie and the supes of Bon Temps. And in fact, this outing does provide closure. This story is tepid at best, but it's been a lot of fun over the years, so I'll give her a pass. As always, Johanna Parker does an outstanding job of narrating and inhabiting all the characters.
I really enjoyed the main character, Kendra. Her particular talents were really interesting and I can see more books to come about her. But the story seemed to wrap up its villains a little too neatly. The narrator was quite good.
Although I think this story sounded a little familiar, it was enjoyable. But the narration was problematic. Mclarty too old for Sean King, Cassidy not quite right for MM. They are both good narrators, but not for this series. Bring back Scott Brick!
I like Maxwell and King a lot. But I really enjoyed Scott Brick's reading of these stories. Ron McLarty is talented, but he's too old to play Sean King and he doesn't change up his voices very well. The story was a little contrived, but I enjoyed it for the most part.
