I have no idea. Personal preference. I like the audio version a lot. This narrator is pretty good. Not as talented as the guy that narrates the Brad Thor books.
Full Black, books by Steve Berry and Brad Thor
He was fair.
The story was pretty good. Learning who the villian(s) are was instrumental, especially since part of this carried over from the previous novel.
Yes, this was a really good novel. i was all over the place emotion wise and trying to pace myself to its end.
Portia. She is young, smart and has a good grasp on reality. Her love and devotion to Lettie made her key in my book of favorable characters.
Michael Beck was so great. Usually, I get irritated with men portraying poor black women, but i think he did Lettie and the other characters justice.
No. Its too long and I have a life!
Jake Brigance is back in what may loosely be called a sequel to "A Time to Kill", Grisham's first novel. I listened to the audio version and think Michael Beck did an A+ job in bringing this story to life.
It follows the story of Jake working to defend the handwritten will of a dead white millionaire, who in racist Mississippi(really, why is that still a state?) leaves his fortune to his black housekeeper of 3 years. Its a plot twisting, stomach churning adventure, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Jake's posse from the first book fill up a lot of decent time in this book. Lucian is drunk as ever, but still manages to be a genius. His other beer drinking lawyer buddy, Harry Rex is there being smart and quite funny. Who knew Grisham could be so funny? Jake can be a bit of egoist. I kept waiting for him to admit, there is no way he can be triumphant without Harry and Lucian. They have way more personality and are seriously flawed that it makes you want to cheer for them. Jake is less interesting without them and/or the judge.
This book reminds me of all the Grisham novels I gobbled up in the 90's(i.e. Pelican Brief, The Firm). I was not sure if i was going to download it or not since the last Grisham book I read, "The Racketeer" was not good at all.
Glad I read it and would definitely recommend it.
I have no idea. I did not read the print version. I did not love the narrator. Every character sounded the same. I kept having to hit the rewind to learn who was talking.
This was a thriller and not for the mild at heart or weak stomached. Some of the details of crimes committed by the villain gave me pause. I was shocked. I had only read one previous book by this author, so was shocked that it was so graphic in details of some disturbing events.
Johanna Parker. She is so great with different characters and accents.
Nature or Nurture: The Killer Bloodline
I am still new to this author. I like her historical facts and details. I have to say I like the female characters best, especially Faith and the old ladies, including Amanda. Will Trent is a little soft for my favorite type of male protagonists. I need him to grow a pair.
Find My Killer
Yes, it was a pretty good book. My 3rd by this author.
Kristen was pretty good. I would listen to her again.
Well, this is listed as a Detective D.D. Warren book and she is touted as this great detective, but Charlene pretty much solved most of this herself. She was the heroine and the protagnonist.
I did enjoy the twist and turns and did like being surprised about the antagonist. Was a good story.
Oh, maybe if the author stayed true to the characters in the past 11 or 12 books. Also, this series ending book wrap up was a joke. Seemed very amateur and not like the work of a seasoned writer. Sloppy storylines and too many insignificant characters, that were a waste of space. Story seemed rushed and just plain ole foolish.
No, I still like this genre. Not sure, I will waste money on this author again. This series was tired a couple books ago, but I expected a better wrap up. Nonetheless, still a fan of th genre even though Ms Harris had our favorite Vamp Eric, go out like a PUNK! What self respecting writer in this genre does that?
Johanna is awesome. Never fails. Her Sookie is my favorite. Notable mention to her Pam.
WOW! Thats a loaded question. I liked very little of this book. I am struggling to think what I would have kept, nonetheless cut. For sure, I would have cut the fake cluvial door made me think of you differently crap between Sam and Sookie. I caught myself frowning as i listened to them have their relathionship "epiphany". Barf! I would have cut all the insignficant characters that popped up in this last book starting with Karen, who somehow entered Sookie's house without being invited in.Vampire 101! The lame tie in to Pam and Karen as Eric's type, so Sookie could have been blonde vamp clone Number 3. I am not sure if i would have cut the vendetta with the bumbling trio of killers, but I failed to connect to why in the heck Copley or his body guard would want to kill Sookie. i found the explanations lacking credibility. Just a mess of a book.
Why write Erica so great in so many books and then turn him into a punk at the end? Folks dont read these solely because they loooovvve Soookie. They love Sookie and the sexy "Supes" , not a wiry and frazzled bar keep. Yes, I am shallow!
Yes, The narrator is fantastic and the story was pretty good, albeit a little long and redundant in some parts.
Learning who the real antagonists were in the story.
He is always great. He had a wide range of characters from at least 5 different countries and did very well representing each one. I love his Scott Horvath voice.
Hmmm. Horvath of course. A second would be the killer with the silver eyes, carried over from Lions of Lucerne. Meg was fair, but all of her annoying questions got on my nerves. I hope we leave her in this book and not carry her on. Not that she was the only irritating character, but she had more page time than the other pests, like Morrell and the other CIA bosses.
It was a good follow up to book one, even though i am still pissed this had a release date of 2/13 and I did nt realize I was buying a book that is ten years old. Not cool, audible. This book had A lot of action and way too many, in my opinion, fight scenes, before we got to a finale. I could live without the over explaining and a few of the "almost caught them" moments. Overall, I enjoyed the book.
Fair to midland.
This is my first Karin Slaughter book. I enjoyed listening to things about my hometown Atlanta. Historical facts and such were pretty interesting. In addition, my favorite character was not the main character, Will Trent. I like his boss and partner more. He is more of a scrambled egg and will take some getting used to if I plan on continuing this series.
Some of the southern accents were a bit over the top. It's Atlanta, not rural Georgia.
truth, lies and conseuences.
The narrator is one of my favorites, Armand Schultz.
Other books in this series. This is book one, so there are plenty to choose from. Also, I like James Rollins sigma force novels. They have some similarities although Rollins can be a bit preachy on political issues.
Scott Horvath. Gotta say, I did not hate his performance of Claudia's character. Usually, men speaking as women grate my nerves.
In the beginning...Scott Horvath
I came upon this series kind of backwards. My first book, being the Athena Project and then every book involving Scott Horvath after that. Recently, I purchased Path of the Assasin from audible without realizing it was the 2nd book in the series and not the latest novel. I was initially pissed, because they should tell you a book is "re-do" of an older audiobook. After listening for about 45 minutes, I realized I needed to go back to listen to book 1, Lions of Lucerne, since the next book picks up shortly after this book and is a continuation of the story, in my opinion.
I was already a Scott Horvath fan before listening to this book, so I can forgive some of the freshman story telling. In addition, Armand Schultz is one of my favorite narrators, so that added to my delight. Now, I am can go back to Path of the Assassins and continue enjoying the series.
I would say it was time well spent. It dragged some in the begging and I wondered if this was going to be a waste of my time. Thankfully, it picked up. However, I should add that sometimes the story telling was a little "see Jack run" - elementary.
Sure, I like John Grisham.
No, I had not listened to J.D. Jackson before but I did enjoy his performance.
No, I do not. I don't think it was good enough to have a follow-up.
This was no where near my favorite Grisham novel. Lots of it was more fantasy than fact, so that was a put off. I do however like that the person that was mistreated gets to tell his story in his own words. I won't say more than that so as to not spoil it for others.
Phil Gigante is one of my favortie narrators, so I will always choose audio if he is the narrator of choice.
All the other Highlander series books by this author.
This guy has serious skills. His performance is top talent. His command of the different accents is fantastic.
Whole book was good.
