A bit predictable but well told. The author tells the heart of 2 people who are unable to express it themselves.
This book doesn't have the charm of previous Gamache books. A whole book in a monastery was a bit much and I guessed the killer right from the beginning. The story of his inspector John Guy just recently out of rehab and in love with Gamache's daughter made the book move and provided an exciting ending. Worth the listen.
Depressing, violent, drawn-out and I love it. Each time I hear one of the Harry Hole books, I think he can't dig his hole much deeper: he continues his plunge. I love the narration and the story. Reading The Bat (first Harry Hole book) presents a much different person and it's interesting to ponder his decent. Can't wait for more.
Another blood-soaked Sandford, but I love it. Virgil Flowers is really taking on his own persona and soon he'll surpass Lucas Davenport for likability. Not much new, but I liked it.
This book as a whole is not funny and whatever else it is is hard to figure out. What is worse is that Lizz has an awful voice. Keep the narration for the professionals!
Another wonderful James Lee Burke narrated by Will Patton. It's getting pretty dark, though; and you have to wonder after Clete's mental state.
Story winds along nicely including all the old characters from Book One. Then, like in Book One, you're definitely left hanging waiting for Book Three. Not sure what I think of an author holding the reader hostage quite so blatantly.
The Scandinavian authors can show American authors a thing or two. A wonderful story told with style. I did have a bit of problem keeping the Norwegian names straight, but that's me not the author. I'll be back for more Nesbo!
James Lee Burke is at it again with all the characters and color of New Orleans beautifully narrated by Patton. Just listening to the poetry of the words is almost enough, but the story is great too.
This book was way too long. The descriptions and characterizations were wonderful, but the story got tiresome somewhere in the middle. Most of all the main character's exploits ( and survival) became unrealistic at about the 10th time he survived (near?) death.probably worthwhile if you stop at about part 3 (of 5!)
