Too bad the entire book doesn't read like the author's afterword. The story is incredibly important, but the writing is amateurish and unbelievable. The dialogue reads like a public service announcement for "Save Darfur." On the other hand, the afterward is heartfelt, authentic, and beautiful. Much as I did not appreciate the writing, I'm glad I listened because I learned a lot about an important subject. I wish Tinsley had written a memoir of her experiences fighting to end genocide.
Andy Caploe did a fine job narrating this book, but the plot was the most predictable, boring story I have ever read or listened to -- I will not give Adam Mitzner another chance!
The women's voices were ridiculous!
The characters in this book are all unlikeable, from heartless aunt to the pathetic and weak main character - there is no one to get attached to.
NO! The narraration is over dramatized.
The narrator is perfect for this smart thriller. A unique, unexpected protagonist whose perspective from the train shows her a dark, violent world.
This is another great installment in the Cork Connor series.
Is it because we all are accustomed to the fabulous voice of David Chandler? Maybe. But the dramatization of the characters is not done well - especially the women.
The mysteries are pretty addictive!
The characters are believable, interesting, and compelling. The author's eye for Minnesota's Iron Range is perfect. The mystery was compelling. Love it!
This is one of the most enjoyable mystery series I've listened to! Inspector Gamache and the villagers of Three Pines are funny, quirky, smart, and so lovable!
Moriarty brilliantly weaves the sensational and the everyday to create a great story,
The characters are women you will recognize.
Caroline Lee is my favorite narrator - she breathes real life into every character.
This is a great story - like all the Harry Hole books are. But, the narrator is amateurish and flat. He's such a disappointment compared to Robin Sachs and John Lee who narrate the other books in this series.
It's flat, unbelievable and forced. At times, it actually makes the story difficult to understand.
Worth the listen in the context of the series - thank goodness he doesn't read any of the others!
I would recommend this audiobook to anyone looking for an unpredictable, entertaining listen.
The narrator's southern accent is musical and brings the characters to life.
Katherine Kellgren's voice is easy to listen to and appropriate for this story, but where the heck was the editing and quality control??? There are many examples of a line being repeated, and at 11:50 of chapter 11 we are subjected to hearing the narrator stumble and exclaim with frustration. DISTRACTING!
