The friendships and the love.
Not really. Too much predictable gore as it moved into the climax.
"He said." "She said." too often. Sometimes a male voice, then a beat, then a female voice saying, "he said." Sheesh - no exclaimed, or shouted or cried, just 'said'.
Narration really slowed down the suspense and hampered the storyline. Are these narrators tired of doing this?
Sometimes male and female changed off with each other with no rhyme or reason, just enough to make the story not flow.
I tried this book after reading several middling reviews saying the narrator ruined it for them. I agree that a female narrator might be better and certainly with so few men in the book, a woman narrator might have had an easier time with all the characters but I was pleasantly surprised that within a few minutes I was adjusted to RC Bray's voice and was pleased with it as well. I had no problems telling the characters apart.
For me, a white person, getting a glimpse, through this book, of modern black life and dialogue is informative and illuminating. Professionals of all races have A type personalities and relationship problems. Looking forward to reading the next book.
My only negative is the loud music played periodically which actually takes away from the story and important dialogue.
Good basis for more stories, although one would hope that not all the mysteries include deaths or the small town will be bereft of occupants soon. One of the sisters, Barbara, has a spelling and grammar fetish. It's a funny gambit. She goes around fixing signs and writing letters, anonymously, to the paper. Therefore I was quite surprised to hear Barbara's narrator mispronounce detritus.
Interesting idea to have 3 narrators, one for each sister, but they could stop emphasizing so many words and sound more natural. The sisters mostly take care of themselves and each other and only call in the guys when absolutely necessary.
Looking forward to the next book.
It's not just facebook.
So timely and so upsetting as we are told about how social media (newspaper lonely hearts ads) trapped women into sexual slavery in Victorian times.
At the same time Malloy and Sarah's relationship moves ahead with the potential blending of family and homes. Well paced, well told, well narrated. Looking forward to the next episode as things are set up for Malloy and Sarah to now be openly working together.
So delighted to have the whole gang working together. Each have their specialities and even though they may not be in the same location each do their thing to perfection. I so enjoy the vicarious satisfaction of hearing the vigilantes work out their schemes and right the wrongs. Read this one way out of order so was happy to learn how Dennis joined the group. Also the ending was not filled with gratuitous violence as some earlier and later books did. Just right.
Could hardly put this one down. Myra and Annie cooking up an adventure with the Post gang and a newbie. Glad to see some added characters although I miss it being mostly women. Looking forward to Charles' tale in the next episode. Meanwhile gratuitous violence was so unnecessary and achieved nothing. They reach their goal without needing to have done the last bit. Other than that I loved this book.
If I had known this was really a YA book, I never would have purchased it. Full of pouting, smart alecky supposed adults that sound like teenagers. The narrator has very few differentiating voices so many of them sound alike and often sound petulant. Interesting storyline hijacked by attitudes and immaturity.
This book seems to be an excuse to be praying, asking and thanking the Lord Christ at any opportunity. The story line is weak and predictable. Not an inspirational book at all.
Fantastic all the way around. Great narrator. Actually stupendous narrator. Wonderful story. So well written. Kept me up listening way past when I should have gone to bed.
If you like science or math and have any interest in space travel, this is the book to listen to.
I thought R was poor but this one beats it. Depressingly read too. In R Kinsey just followed along with the idiot ideas of a young woman even though she knew they were off and would be trouble. Not a bright thing for a seasoned detective to be doing.
In W she goes further, being fleeced when she could stand up for herself and say no. Letting people dump all over her. The characters in this book are the worst yet. I have no call to get to know them better or to listen to more of this negativity. Seems like the alphabet should have ended before R. This series is dead for me.
Why an adult with Kinsey's reputation and experience would continually follow an immature ex con is beyond me. Yes it made for some exciting scenes but Kinsey should have stopped agreeing with this woman's antics after the first mistake, especially since most of the time she was doing what this woman wanted without even knowing why or how things were supposed to turn out.
I lost a lot of respect for the Kinsey in this book. I hope future books are more mature and responsible otherwise it is just filling up space hoping to get to Z.
