Again I am impressed. Good to get to know Nathan and Harvey more. Can't wait to start the 3rd book
Maybe, but not right away
Jace/Conner (since i listened and didnt read I hope I am spelling correctly)
When the second brother got his surprise-don't want a spoiler alert here ;)
When Conner heard Hannah
I am a horse person. I have also been to that exact area of Montana in June 2000. No horse person I know would have taken a horse with an injury like Tango had out at all much less in those circumstances. Similar to any animal that has not exercised in 3 months, muscle weakens. He wasn't walked around at all. His muscle mass, tendons, ligaments and just plain stamina would have greatly reduced. having been in that exact area I know for a fact there are dozens of ranches that have horses, ride-able horses. If Alison and Ethan had lived there that long, been embedded in the community, there would have been any number of people that would have let them borrow 2 TWO horses. I dont feel that the author researched this area of his story thoroughly.
Hard to compare since I have not read print version. Especially with non-US authors or books set abroad I feel the audio is much better because of the accent and slang. This narrator is amoung the best I have ever listened to.
Strike of course! Robin is right there in 2nd place
FLAWLESS. His transition between characters was smooth. Easy to differentiate between the characters. Just flawless
Not sure about moved but I loved the car scene where Robin avoids the accident with her superb driving skills. Although I think she is too subservient to Matthew the author certainly gives her stand out scenes that are perfect for a strong female character to help prove her 'worthiness'. I love that Strike is getting her training
Its quite clear that Rowling aka Galbraith was not a one-hit-wonder with the Harry Potter series. the first Strike book was great but this one is even better. Its long at 17+ hours but it is such a smooth listen you don't notice it. It took that long to build the story and the characters. I cant wait for the 3rd installment of Strike!
this is second in series, The Professionals being the first, which was a smoother read , better story line, although they both pretty far fetched. Same narrator but it wasnt as good as the first one
Why don't the authors and the producers of these audio production tell the narrators how to pronounce their characters names!?!?!?! Of why don't the narrators do their homework?!?!?! Can't stand to listen when the narrator pronounces the main characters name wrong every single time. Harry Hole (who-la) is a cop so most people call him by his last name
Great follow up to The Ghosts of Belfast which was fantastic. I love the way the little girl Ellen has 'the gift' but in a different context than Fegan. Sorry it had to end. Definitely these 2 books are worth a 2nd and 3rd read
It was a bit tedious, the narrator almost put me to sleep several times. For a lawyer the main character is pretty stupid. stuck with it to find out who dun it, even though it was pretty obvious.
Was recommended to this author by friend. Story was ok-nothing terribly unique-just another freaking sicko. The narrators was ok. my biggest issue was the time spacing. In a handheld book , in a chapter where there are breaks to change the scene or people that break is obvious- in an audio book it is the narrator and the director that determine that correct pause. This was the biggest issue with this book. You are listening and all of a sudden you realize you are hearing about a totally different character or scenario but there was no or way too short of a pause, so short its unrecognizable.
It wasn't so bad I wouldn't listen to the next in the series.
It is up there for certain. Really like Assad (not sure if spelled correctly since I was listening and not reading print). Can't wait til we find out more about his past
Well any detective novel. Most of the good ones are about flawed detectives and how their past influences how they work a case or even which cases they deem important.
Spoiler Alert - when Kimmie accomplishes her task.
WOW good question. WHERE IS NORDIC PETA WHEN YOU NEED THEM!
Although Kimmie was 'a bad person' she had so many evils done to her that you still rooted for her to get justice.
YES, I have and would again to both. LOVE GERARD DOYLE'S narrations
Lets compare to the series of Sean Duffy. I found it a bit of a let down, not quite as good as the first 2. There was one inconsistency which really bugged me: hotel room on speaker, what informant tells the 3 of them-weren't they listening?
First he could read a repair manual and make it interesting! His voices of all the characters is perfect. He switches from one to the other with ease. You never have a problem knowing who it is. His inflection is perfect. He truly makes Adrian McKinty's perfect
to question the above mention inconsistency! I have already read all his other books
I felt it over too fast - not sure how to describe that though. And why does every one think this is the last of Sean Duffy? I have an inkling we will be hearing from him again and in what capacity.
This book isn't what I was expecting, having read the Sean Duffy and Michael Forsythe novels, but once I got into the meat of the story it did not disappoint. I realized how much the heroin was affecting this obviously brilliant ex-detective. You wanted to just scream at him because he was so blinded about the truth of situation. Its a good read and Gerald Doyle just sends it over the top. That man could read a garbage collection manual and make it enjoyable. Adrian McKinty is hands down one of my favorite authors.
