Yes, it was a good story, I liked the performer and for the most part the story was compelling enough to keep me interested.
Yes, while it isn't great literature it is a good book for a long trip.
The denouement was quite entertaining and welcomed as the book had lost its steam by the end.
There is plenty of room for a sequel in this book and a quite compelling one.
I have not read the print version but I enjoy this performer so much I wouldn't even try the print version.
I have read/listened to all of the Silva books. I enjoy his plots and characters. His books are timely and relevant.
His accents and nuances are masterful.
Yes, however I saved it for long trips so I could savor the story and performance
The narration made it almost impossible to listen to. Excruciating is the most appropriate word I can use.
I would never purchase anything from this narrator EVER!
No, even considering it makes my ears hurt.
The narrator-I know he's not a character but that's who I'd cut anyway.
It was a little frustrating due to the fact that the book was too long and not as well plotted as those in the past.
This is not my favorite. I think the book is too long and the main characters other than Lynley are not very sympathetic.
She is the consumate artist. I have enjoyed everything she has read in great part due to her skill as a reader.
It inspired me to consider re-reading the older books to try to recapture the magic in those.
Yes, I have re-listened to several of this author's books.
Inspector Gamache without a doubt-he is a warm and humane person who deals with the depravity men and women can involve themselves in.
I cannot imagine anyone else reading these books. He makes the people and settings of Three Pines come alive.
Inspector Gamache is presented with several heartwrenching decisions which he resolves with wisdom and caring.
Yes, I would. It's entertaining and will keep you involved all the way to the end.
I enjoyed the book very much and will read others by this author.
Having never read the print version this is only a guess but I think I would prefer the audiobook.
The unraveling of the layers of lies that premeate the lives of the characters.
No I have not
It neither made me laugh or cry but kept me entertained.
I have not read the print version however it is less distracting to hear the Norwegian names spoken than to have to try to guess at the correct pronunciation.
There are many- the author teases us with red herrings all the way to the end.
Harry Hole is always a favorite- desperately flawed yet still looking for peace and absolution.
As with all of the Harry Hole novels I find myself wanting to cry out to Harry that he is treading on familiar yet treacherous ground.
A very satisfying book, I will probably listen to it again and love it again.
The main character is very real-I like that in a protagonist. She leads a life I can relate to and understand.
The unexpected plot twist at the end.
Maggie, the protagonist
You'll Get a Jolt from that Espresso :-)
I love to own both versions. I have collected all of the print copies of Burke's books but I love to hear them too. Will Patton was the perfect choice to read these stories and Burke's language flows so well in the audio versions.
As in all of his books Burke's characters are complex and on missions to complicate their lives and those of the ones they love. It is impossible to become a part of these books without thinking "Please, stop now!". Of course they don't and therein lies the story.
With many series authors the books start becoming shorter and the plots less involved. Burke defies this trend. Each of the Dave Robicheaux books is complex, thick with a sense of place and time and the complicated mix of human emotions. I look forward to each new addition to my Burke library.
The plot was reminiscent of another one of his books that discussed data mining.Although he has given Lincoln a new situation regarding his health it does not improve the flow of the story. This book had much less about Lincoln's relationship with his paramour, Amelia. In the past books the personal relationships in his life were so important and gave the books their color and dimension.
No, I would read another book in this series and hope for the best
The narrator was satisfactory but not great.
The book is part of a series that I love.
