Perhaps I could READ this book and ignore the plethora of bad grammar and annoying reading but I couldn't waste my time listening to it.
Probably not, since the accents were so ridiculously distracting. I did enjoy the story though.
Overall, the book was pretty good. It wasn't what I was expecting from this author, nor would I count it as a favorite. I enjoyed listening to it, although the story got pretty wild and ... odd at times.
High up--I really enjoy the witty banter in Molly Harper's books, despite the highly improbable plot lines
Pretty high. I really like the narrator.
Yes!! I actually got sick the weekend I downloaded it, and ended up listening to the entire thing in a couple of days.
Betsy got so annoying that I found myself yelling at the audiobook and couldn't finish it. This was the first book I listened to, and I now realize that I only got this far because I managed to ignore, or skim over how completely obnoxious of a protagonist Betsy is. I'm done.
The stereotypes of 'Muslim terrorists' get old, fast. The author doesn't know jack about Islamic history aside from what he researched about the hashishun. The narrator is awesome, which is the only reason I will finish this book. Other than that, I'm not impressed and was, at times insulted.
I found this book through read suggestions and enjoyed it. It wasn't terribly deep, and was a quick 'read' (or listen in this case). If you want a quick book that you can get into, but doesn't require a lot of attention this is one :)
This book is what I have come to expect from Carl Hiaasen; a fast paced, hilarious, intriquing book with lots of twists. It is one of the few books that I will listen to over and over again and not get bored with it. It is much better than Star Island, which really disappointed me after listening to this one. I would most definitely suggest this book as an adult substitution to Hoot and Flush (also excellent books).
Skinny Dip was such an excellent book that I thought I would download this one. I just found it boring, and not at all witty like his other books. I wouldn't suggest this book...especially not as a first read.
