I have already listened to it at least 6 times.
I love the main character, Ptolemy
No, this is the only one. I like him, but it's the story and the character that captured me.
Some parts of the story are vividly violent, and the language is authentic if you're sqeamish, but in the service of a brilliantly crafted story of an old man given the ability to make sense of his long life. My college-aged son found the pace of the story too slow, but I just went with it, and the main character got under my skin. Ptolemy has become part of my life.
I would have appreciated some motive for the murders.
I'll probably return to the In Death series.
The crisp, sonorous tone.
Under no circumstances.
I kept listening, hoping something would "click" -- some inkling of why this elaborate set-up was created & why these apparently random people were killed. Never happened.
I enjoyed the first two in the series, and was looking forward to the insights and conclusion that this book promised. Apparently Sylvia Day did not respect the intelligence of her audience enough to deliver what she had promised. This is NOT the conclusion. There are more episodes to follow. I resent the feeling that our loyalty to the series was exploited. I will not be buying any more in this series.
Conclude it as promised.
She was an enjoyable narrator. I probably listened to the book for longer periods than I would have read in book form.
Not really. Reflected in You, on the other hand ...
It's probably in the top 10
I liked when Caroline came into the library and discovered there was more to Tucker than she'd first thought.
I love love love Tucker's voice. It's entirely possible it's the sexiest voice I've ever heard.
Tucker, partly just to listen to him talk, and partly because of his easy-going intelligence.
My second Nora Roberts listen. Even though I had figured out who the killer was, I'm a fan.
I would absolutely recommend it. The story, the author's voice and the length were perfect. It felt like I was listening to her talk over dinner.
Can't think of one.
It sounded like we were in a conversation -- she was ironic, laugh-out-loud funny and managed to convey a sense of wonder with no mushiness at all.
I laughed out loud more than once and found tears leaking out at the end.
Loved loved loved this story. I'm going to re-listen, and than go buy some of Ann Patchett's books.
The narrator read way too fast. I would probably have a different narrator.
It could have been slower, allowing the listener to think about what was being said.
I loved the book, which I read years ago and now have on my Kindle. It inspires me to be more intentional in my thoughts, words and actions.
I appreciated his comfort with Swedish names that would have been very distracting to read (I tried it on my Kindle, and WAY preferred listening to him.)
The Phoenix Rises
Though not a stand-alone, this was probably every bit as good as Dragon Tattoo.
