The performance showed the characters off to best advantage.
Lola, the Mexican dancer was a hoot! Quirky characters abounded.
The audible version made the book come alive for me and I would certainly recommend it. The reader was absolutely superb and a reader that I want to seek out in the future. Ms. Heyer was a master author and I hope many more of her mysteries become available. I might even be tempted to listen to one of her romances just to enjoy more of her work.
The overly dramatic music playing constantly in the background ruined the listening experience for me. I never was able to listen to it with any pleasure.
I also didn't like that each book of the Bible ended up being a separate download. It really clutters up my library.
I didn't like Jeff Woodman as a reader. His southern accents were over the top. I also didn't like the characters.
Dislike and indifference.
I just wasn't interested in the story and never finished it.
I thought the plot was terrific. Even the most reliable of friends became a suspect by the end of the story.
I wasn't crazy about Katherine Kellgren. (Do people really talk with over the top posh accents like that?)
I was intrigued by the premise of the nobility during the depression. Broke but unable to work because of peer pressure. I almost didn't finish the listen because of the reader, but I'm glad I stuck with it. I'll probably listen to more in the series. The plot was really good and I liked the lead character. She was independent and had spunk. The romantic touches were nice without being over the top. All in all, a good listen.
James Bond stories are always exciting and fun to listen to, but what I really loved was the character, Honey Child, and her relationship with James Bond.
I loved Honey Child especially. Her street smarts along with her innocence were charming. Simon Vance gave a really believable presentation of her character.
This is the first James Bond novel I've ever listened to. I thought the characters were presented so much better than in the movie, and the plot was exciting.
I have always loved the Joanna Brady series. There are always great and realistic characters and plots. Stephanie Brush IS Joanna Brady. This is a great story, and read perfectly.
I especially enjoyed the young adult characters. They really made the book for me.
There was a lot of mystery about why everything was happening; and you didn't find out until right at the end what was driving the story.
This was the first Rizzoli and Isles book I have listened to. I've seen the TV series though. I'm going to continue to listen to these because the characters, the plotting and the writing is so good.
Interesting characters (both good and bad!), romance, a good mystery.
She gets the characters just right and brings the era to life. Very pleasant listen.
I love the way the romance was handled. You pulled for them, and I loved hating the "bad guy". Patricia Wentworth is an excellent writer. This book is very much along Agatha Christie lines. A terrific listen.
These are a really entertaining series of books and this one is no exception. Barbara Rosenblat does a terrific job of reading and Mrs. Pollifax is a great character.
This old lady kicks butt! A very entertaining character, intelligent, creative and likeable. These books are like candy. I'm going to listen to every one of them.
The main character, like most of the rest of his family (excluding one of his sisters), has so many flaws that you just want to cringe! But all in all a terrific book. I figured out "who done it" early on, but the depth of characterization kept my attention and I ended up just feeling compassion for everyone. Such a dysfunctional family! My, my! But oh what a listen!
