I have always enjoyed Lisa Scottoline's books before. This book would be a disappointment for any fans of hers.
The characters were unsympathetic. The narration was overly dramatic and some of the characters appeared to be constantly whining. It was very difficult to care for the characters or the storyline. All of the characters were very unrealistic.
I would listen to the sample of her narration before purchasing another book.
The youngest daughter.
I will continue to watch for this author but will probably rely on reviews before making another purchase.
It would have been better if there were fewer characters- There were so many characters that it was difficult to feel for more than the primary character, Andy Horton.
The story was difficult to follow because there was a lot of extra information. The story was similar to a stream of consciousness- too much information that distracted from the story.
The characters all sounded very similar. I find it difficult to follow a narration when there are minimal differences in the speaking patterns and voices between the characters.
Yes. I love stories where I learn information (in this case about wolves) as well as listen about characters and the events in their lives.
Edward- I really felt for him and his struggles. I admired his willingness to see his own challenges as well as to do something about them.
I love Jodi Picoult's books because each chapter is from the viewpoint of an individual character as the storyline progresses- this group of narrators captures the individual characters and helped me created a vision of them in my mind.
I would keep them all.
I have recently started listening to Jodi Picoult's books and I have really loved them all so far. I would imagine that these are better to listen to than to read- at least for me. The group of narrators and the way each chapter is set up is a real plus to me for listening to the story over reading the story.
The narration was wonderful. You really saw and heard the separate identities of each of the characters. The storyline was so unusual that it was very engrossing. As I listener, I felt all of the range of the emotions of the characters- humor, sadness, anger and fright.
The relationship between both brothers was very complex and very interesting.
He nailed it! This is one story that I am betting is better to listen to than to read. He created the individual identities of the brothers through his narration. He was humorous and although the story was raunchy and sad his narration made me want to hear it until the end.
Both brothers were each memorable in their own way.
This is such a departure from previous Karin Slaughter stories but I really enjoyed it and was glad that I listened to it. It really stayed with me.
I am a Harry Hole fan- the stories are always great and the characters are complex. Even though Harry is self-destructive, I always root for him to succeed. You care about the main character so you care about the story.
Robin Sachs is a great actor and narrator and his reading makes you
I read and enjoy mystery books of all kinds. This book was a great one to listen to because it was lighter than most and was easy to follow. I like to read or listen to books like this especially after finishing an emotionally charged book. The characters in this book are endearing and the references to animals are enjoyable. Mr. Gardner's narration is especially good. It is easy for me to hear the different characters and their individual personalities come through. This is the third book I have listened to by David Rosenfelt and I have enjoyed them all. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys mysteries or stories involving animals.
The author created wonderful imagery with her words. The story is very sad but powerful. The narration was a perfect match for the story and the characters.
This was my first book by Jodi Picoult. The author appears to understand the specific qualities and quirks of someone with Aspergers. The characters are realistic and very easy to empathize with. The ensemble cast of narrators were terrific to listen to. The ending was tied up a little too snugly and quickly in contrast to the book where there was development of plot and characters.
The story's main character Henry House was neither irresistible or charming. It was difficult to develop any positive feelings, understanding or sympathy for any of the characters in the book.
