The book is marvelous, both the audio version and the printed one.I’m not a big fan of military fiction in general and I have to admit that I chose this one because of the narrator Dan John Miller. But when I started to listen and read it simultaneously I couldn’t put it down and finished it in less than 3 days.The narration of this book is just perfect. I can't imagine how it could be better. All characters, male and female alike, sounded perfect, so perfect in fact, that I didn’t just heard, I saw them as they spoke, acted, thought.
I don’t remember when I was so moved and captivated by the novel before. The story itself is not just about military college and growing up of young men. It’s about so much more. It’s about acceptance, choices and beliefs, it’s just about life.The brutal honest of the book will make you laugh, cry, bite your lips, dig your nails into your palms and cringe and blush, and it will make you to think over and to question again and again your own honesty and moral codes and that’s in my point of view is the mark of literature masterpiece. And do you really need to compare real masterpiece to anything else?
All in all I was so impressed that I decided to read more of Pat Conroy’s books and chose to buy audio versions and kindle editions of his two other novels – The Water is Wide, again narrated by Dan John Miller and The Prince of Tide (according to critics one of the best works of Mr. Conroy) narrated by Frank Muller.
I'd rather say that I really liked two previous books in the series, thanks to twisted plot, well developed detective line, intriguing relationships and unusual characters. But this one not so much.
I wish it would be more dynamic, less predictable, and the main character... well, I would like to see her acting more like a professional detective with special gift rather than damsel in distress with absolutely erratic behavior.
Really hope that the next book will get back on trail and again will bring us all intrigue and excitement of first two books in the series.
I'm not a native English speaker and I admit that I couldn't appreciate all sorts of pronunciations but I have to say that sometimes Marcella Riordan interpretation of book's characters sounded to me annoying and distracting,especially when she spoke as the main character Detective Sergeant Kathleen Doyle. I didn't really paid it a lot of attention before as the plot of previous books completely captured me, but this time it just added negative emotion to the whole picture.
Fast passing, intriguing, captivating plot. Well developed characters.
Absolutely balanced, well done narration. Music is a nice touch. Excellent example of great audiobook.
I would recommend it to all fans of good mystery. This one is worth your money.
I would've gave this book 4 stars if not for it main character - annoyingly stubborn, self-centered, obnoxiously obsessed with her pitiful revenge damsel in distress, though she doesn't sees herself that way till the end of this book. I wanted to hit her over the head with something heavy somewhere in the middle of this story and wanted to strangle her to death somewhere through 2/3 of the book only to make a great favor to the Prince of Midnight, myself, other readers and to the whole World in general (pardon my ambitions).
I didn't and I'm not sure that I want to read or listen other books by Laura Kinsale
This is my first book narrated by Nicholas Boulton and he is absolutely great and perfect. I'm going to browse something else with him as a narrator.
Thanks but no thanks. One is more than enough.
The book is very well balanced for this genre.
Even if there was not too much violence, which is expected in the MC's plot, there is almost all way through enough tension between characters to keep us on our toes.
There are sex scenes but it all happens in right moments and never became annoyingly intrusive. There is enough back ground stories and minor characters to make this book interesting to follow from the beginning to the end.
And of course the narration is above all praise.
Really looking forward for the next instalment in the series.
Reapers MC series, because of the genre, quality of the writing and excellent narration.
Books by Ilona Andrews are my favorite in the genre, narrated by Renee Raudman… well what can be better?
I had a chance to listen to the first 3 books of Kate Daniels series also written by Ilona Andrews (unfortunately for some reason that’s all what is available for purchase on Audible in my country) and it was really enjoyable experience as much as the Clean Sweep. I just wish I’ll be able to buy and listen the next instalment in this series.
I just did it.))
Excellent beginning of the very promising series written by one of the best authors in the genre and readed by really talented narrator.
I’ve read and listen this delightful book simultaneously, and have to admit that flawless narration and highly artistic performance added to the fascinating by itself story more charm and attractiveness.
I didn’t listen any other books narrated by Moira Quirk yet, but going to browse something right away.
Definitely looking forward for the next installment in the series.
