Back to normal.
Now - these are not edge of your seat books - they are wonderful soft adventures that once started I never stop till finish. Never begin one on a Monday morning as I have to earn a living!
Agatha and Sir Charles - I cannot pick one. But the vicor's wife was different in this one - so why do I have to pick one?
Always make me laugh!
The characters, conversations and story line never got together. It was not interesting
The book seemed to provide information but no story that made me want to know more. More disappointing is that there is another book in this series.
He seemed bored as much as I was. Most disappointing was using the Bill Crider name - I enjoy and have purchased all Bill Crider books - but the narrator made bill crider sound like Shirley Temple imitating an old man in one of the early way too cute movies. Even if he does sound like that what the h*ll was he doing in the story? This was so disappointing even at $4.95 overpriced
not that I could hear
Yes, I enjoyed the story and didn't need to listen all in one day. The story was written with enough information in each of the story lines to make it easy to remember where I stopped and what action finished just before I stopped listening. Many good stories don't have that strong a set of characters to allow for interruptions.
I have so many of the Thomas Perry books I will always try more!
It could just be that I don't like Roth's style but I would not keep people in my life that spoke so quickly and with such aggressive speech. So this is the problem. If you like this sort of book it is great. If you don't then most likely you won't finish it.
nothing. I think it is the story I don't like.
knowing the good guys would all win no matter how bad the problem!
The story reminded me how much fun it was to read when I was 4 or 5. This story was not the old peter pan - and as an adult I really don't need to remember how confused I was that Peter was really a Mary - not that there is anything wrong with that -but no confusion here, no thinking required, just enjoy and smile.
yes - I liked the suspense - I changed my mind about 'who done it' many times and was surprised again and again. The characters are different from those in all of the suspense books I've read in the last few years. Audible only has one of Cleeve's books I hope they get more! The book has a slow start but it is worth it and helped to define characters sufficient for me to get involved. After first few chapters I listened non stop for about 9 hours.
I like the way the characters each had assumptions or hopes concerning the other characters and how those assumptions changed and led to unusual conclusions - I liked the way she brought in surprise actions while holding true to all that she wrote of the characters from beginning to end.
Paris of course.
get more Cleeve books!!!!!!!
Yes I will listen again. I have all of the Charlie Parker and the books intended for children. JC provides such outstanding stories that I am amazed.
I don't want to give too much away but getting to hold a hand can be amazing.
He is matched to Charlie and as narrator he brings both male and female characters to life. Some characters might be overlooked by me if I only read the book. Sometimes I disagree with the voice of a character if I read before listen. In this case only Angel and Louie were a little different than I imagined them. Just as good, but different.
Yes, Kevin Kraft has great tone and timing. His voice is clear and I like it. His voice for the child, however, seemed too big. His females are mostly good but his male voices and characters are really great.
I have every Lansdale offered by audible - his range is so great that he writes wonderful dialog and unique views of people - but this story is like there is something he forgot to write about in order to make the reader follow the story.
Story didn't seem to be consistent end to end and characters had big pieces missing. Maybe that was the intent and if so boy did he succeed.
sorrow that I bought it.
I will still buy most Lansdale books but will preview them first.
There wasn't much I enjoyed about this book. No surprises. Same old same old. The first 12 Plums were fun and funny. They have pleased me less and less with only a couple exceptions in books 13-21. So here at 21 it is hard work just to finish the book. So sad. 'bye Stephanie.
a different story would help
yes - once I got through the first 15 minutes I didn't want to stop until the end.
This author is trustworthy - that means his endings of the books are consistent with the stories and characters - although not predictable. Robotham doesn't have to present a long explanation at the end to tie up all the dead ends he wrote him self into and couldn't work out by the deadline. His story makes good reading through the ending. This is unusual even for authors I enjoy on a regular basis. My only objection is that Audible doesn't have book 6 in the series and there is a slight disconnect for me since I've read and listened to all the earlier books.
