I normally am not drawn to any of the detailed crime or forensic novels; but after hearing the author interviewed on NPR, it caught my attention. The book was excellent and from what I understood, very factual. The writing style and character detail had me picturing the events as I listened along. That was why it was so gruesome and moving to me; I felt like I was watching the events as they were unfolding. Anyone interested in profilers and forensics to solve crime will love the detail and the character detail made me feel like I was looking at them. I am amused at reviews that criticize the narrator so much, for me they are the voice that sets the tone and in this case; Adam Grouper did an excellent job in bringing the characters to life with his style. I could clearly identify who he was speaking for as he read. Talented Mr. Grouper!
I enjoyed this book and find I am listening to it again. There is a lot of good information as a fan and believer in Debbie Ford, Deepak Chopra's work and much of Marianne Williamson's inspiration (though I do not share her belief in The Course In Miracles but much of the content extracted). I thought that it was
"abridged" because it did become redundant in sections; so could have been a bit shorter in Debbie and Marianne's portions for my taste. The information was solid and all reiterating what they had written about before; the reference to Jame's Fowler's "Connected" caught me by surprise because I ran across this book and purchased it here earlier this year by what I thought was "accident" at the time.....hmmm...
I am a big fan of Mary Janice Davidson's "Undead - Betsy Vampire Queen" series because of the sharp humor. Molly Harper's series has now had the same impact! Bright, witty, entertaining and most importantly, helps me to forget the troubles in my life and the heat in my hike in the SOCAL desert heat! I already have the next two books in this series downloaded...I hope she is not dead and that they are ending but could be. Never heard of you Molly, but you have a fun style and totally different than Mary Janice, except the "vampire" theme and THANK YOU FOR REMEMBERING THERE WERE/ARE FANS WHO ARE NOT "TWEENS" in this genre!!!
I am one of the listeners who has never "read" Laurell K. Hamilton's work; so listened to every single "Anita Blake" audio book based on release dates not in order. The last two Anita Blake novels are going downhill on plot. "Flirt" seemed rushed and light on substance; but "Bullet" was like a porn movie big on the erotic, light on plot and bored me. First time I felt I wasted my money on her books. I like when she explores many of the other characters not just the sexcapades of Anita & whoever she is having sex with. Great for those who wanted to know she did homework on BDSM; I would rather see some work on the mystery of a police case and find many of her non preternatural friends more interesting like Ronnie, Edward, Dolph. It would be fun to meet her Grandmother Blake.
I laughed so often and out loud that I am sure people observing me walking in this 115 degree heat think I am delirious! I live in the desert area, and turned to audio downloads to motivate me to get out and walk day and night in the intense summer heat. This is a fun series...I love the narrator and the writing is so clever, such a good pace, and just enough steam to get a few hot blushes! I am onto #3
I am a fan of many authors in this area & really enjoyed this book. Kept me going & I found about 5 new authors whose books I plan to get. I recommend this for anyone who wants to have a good time in this genre. Gave me a great feel for the authors I looked at but had not been drawn to yet. Looking forward to trying them out & enjoying the "Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon"
