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.
Its my second favorite after "The Help". Love Ray Porter. He is a fascinating narrator.
Joe Ledger is may favorite. He is crazy as heck but a hero and good guy. Love the witty remarks and the fact that he is extremely sarcastic as well as a strategic fighter. All of that rolled in to one Bad A guy.
I have listened to all the books in the series. Ray Porter is so darn talented I can't put it into words.
There was a lot in this book that moved me. The fact the Wu finally showed some feelings was a shocker. I wish that Juny's story could have moved me, but i dont really care about her. Her loss left me empty and bored.
I am a big fan of this series. This is the only book I rated a 4 out of 5, instead of 5 stars. The time Maberry spent on Juny was a waste, but it is still a great book that i would highly recommend. The story was great. It was strong and intense and just plain ole scary as heck.
Jim Frangione. I have listened to him narrate many of the JR Ward novels and could not imagine listening to these stories with his voice.
Meh! Some things were tied up, but nothing jaw dropping. Other stuff, not so much. Even with that said, I was still sad to hear the ending. I was hoping for a big reaction and I knew i would miss the BDB when it was over.
Jim is fantastic. Always a pleasure. If not for his performance, the rating above would be a solid 3.
At some points yes. I loved some parts regarding the King(current and past) and the affection for their mates. Some of the words spoken by the brothers are hilarious. This book seemed to have quite a few references to urban culture(Miley Cyrus Twerking, for example). They missed the mark. Did not find them funny. Wanted to smack Beth a few times and wanted to slap Layla for the entire time. I was mentally cursing them a lot.
This book does speak to the current and former King, but it also holds a whole bunch of other stories blended in which i found convaluted. It was too much. I could care less about lame Layla, Xcor, Assail or Sola. This book dedicated a good 1/2 of the time to them, which irked me. I wanted more of the King and the Brothers. Love the Brothers. They are flawed but redeemable, unlike the before mentioned hypocrites and thugs.
This book follows the recently released movie, even though I think someone could still catch on without having watched the movie. I loved the television series and this gives me more of what I loved. Great story by the same person that penned the TV series.
Veronica Mars. Well, because it was read by Kristen a.k.a. Veronica Mars. Witty banter and smart crime solving!
Hard to answer without giving too much away, so I will say the last 1/4 of the book.
Veronica and her dad near the end of the book.
Wanted more Logan. Not sure I like Rob's idea to make him a career military man and detach him from the story. That was a bummer. Veronica is key, but her banter and relationship with Logan is part of the greatness of series. Do better next book, Rob!!!
Hmm. Hard to answer. I liked the story but I could not take the narration. The NY accent was too heavy and did not make for easy listening. It was an aggravation. I ended foregoing the audio version and purchasing the eBook.
It was a good ending. I like the way it was wrapped up. Ms Day usually gets on my nerves when she leaves me hanging on her Renegade Angels books, so I am glad she did not tick me off by doing the same here.
Heck No! She sounds like a freaking Brooklyn Cheerleader while reading.
Nope. I think it ended fine.
I did not read the print version, hence the reason I chose audio.
Roarke was my favorite character. His character and committment were commendable.
Steven Weber was perfect. I felt like i was at the movies, listening to his performance made this experience most enjoyable. Great choice.
Navy Seals - Family, Honor and Committment
Maybe, not sure.
No, I like the genre. Did not love this story or the narrator.
Not sure. Anyone with out such a squeaky child like voice.
I would not cut any, but would have atleast did A better ending, so that people like me, that are not as familiar with the series would not be left hanging. Is there a novel that will follow this up? 'Twas not explained at the end of this story.
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!
