Not only is this book x rated - I skipped most of a chapter that described sex acts in great detail, but it is slow as well. Quirk just stumbles around not doing much detecting or getting much accomplished. Last Benjamin black for me. Wish audible had a rating system.
I Love all these books. My complaint is always the same... why isn't it longer. These books are like putting on your favorite sweater. warm comfortable happy!
They should've given the porter a puppy. A good story, good performance, ready for book2.
I love this whole series. I hope this is not the end. The writing is descriptive, with out being overly so. The characters are comfortable old friends. I love catching up with the going ons in Bally-Buckle-Bo. And wish I were there saying "hows about ya" Makes me miss Ireland. If you have not read/ heard any of the other books- go start at the beginning, you will not be sorry.
Like the author, like the story, male voice is OK, however the female screams her way through the book. As she gets excited her voice goes up an octave or three and she starts yelling. It is a bit better in the second book, but if you sensitive ears stay away!
I loved her tales of the otori series. Maybe that set my expectations to high for this book. I have finished part 1 and am on to part 2, and so far nothing has happened. There is no chemistry no pop, no wonder. Just plodding. It's almost just a character study. If you get this book do not expect to find the wonder, mystery and magic of her other books. I was very disappointed. If I could afford to not listen and get something else I would.
If they had negative stars this would get it. This book was sooo boring. And when it got to one of the characters masturbating in a bathtub I turned it off. Waste of money and time. Do not buy this book. How stuff like this gets published is beyond me. I don't know how else to say it but please don't waste you money or credits.
Loved it all the reader was good the characters were great and interesting, Thankfully it was long as I didn't want it to end.
This is a good book and a good read (er listen). However, I feel that the story of the boy gets a little lost in all the stories. There are points when I think ok lets get on with the story and cut out all the storytelling. Yet in the end it all seems to work out ok.
I listen mainly as I drive, I have heard this reader before and like him, but the book does not hold my attention, I have just finished with the first part and am trying to work up to reading the second part. It will not be while driving though as I find this book puts me to sleep.
