Will Patton did a really good job on this. I just didn't like many of the characters and when Christmas started beating a horse on the head, I gave up.
No - didn't finish it
I am listening to Ken Follet's World Without End
I get tired of these hyper English accents.
The irony was amusing, but this just went on and on.
OK - so why, when I listened to one of his books did I go ahead and get another Michael Connelly book. Three books. The main character is just annoying.
Somewhat interesting, but far from enthralling. I can't think of fifteen words to characterize this book.
well written, well read, funny, touching, interesting. Best audible I have heard in quite a while.
I guess I just don't like Michael Connelly's characters or style all that much. Yes, a surprise ending. But nothing all that interesting before that.
Narrator is terrific. I listed to bits and pieces over and over just to hear his voice. Mystery is terrific. Very complex and keeps you guessing. I have now listenend to every one of Louise Penny's books available on audible.
These mysteries/stories/character studies are so complex and full of wisdom and humor - and poetry. I am going to hate finishing the last of the series (that starts with Still Life, by the way). I believe my favorite character is Gabri - or perhaps Ruth. I may need to listen more than once to each of them to carry away more of the references and pearls of wisdom. And terrific narrator.
Clever in a few spots but frenetic, hard to follow and I didn't finish listening. I wish audible would have an "If you didn't like this, you won't like these" section. I just bought Connie Mills book about "...the dog." If you like Good Omens, you will probably like Ms. Mills' "sci-fi" which is more like a load of quips. Maybe if I were English...?
I learned a lot about the post WWII history. It was only the metaphors that annoyed me - "lips like a petulent rose," and "thoughts tossed like tomatoes in a salad." Please. And that the adjectives could never be single. Big Broad shoulders, etc.
