Ugh, I have to agree with another reviewer that Jeff Lindsay is a good writer but an annoying reader. The guy that did the previous books was Dexter to me. The book starts out slowly with 20 minutes of how wonderfullllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll Dexter's new kid is. It gave me a headache.
This was my favorite in the series. It's more of a monster story instead of military.
Ms. King brings the characters to life. I don't know if I would have continued reading if I hadn't switched to these audiobooks. Lula isn't nearly as much fun when I read the books.
Fun story and Lorelei King did a great job as usual.
I've been reading for 30 years and I just can't stand reading about stupid women any more. The author writes about an extremely powerful creature but makes her an incompetent idiot. Then at the end she actually manages to defend herself. REALLY!? Now, she pulls out some quick thinking and power? How about the other 8 hours I've spent listening to this moron taking 2 minutes to react to anything.
This has the stupidest woman ever written. The husband is an idiot for following her but not nearly as annoying as Ms. Ditz.
She did a good job, stupid character is not her fault.
The story is good and kept my interest but it was wonderful to have Kirsten Potter as narrator melt into the background and just enjoy the book. I've heard some really awful voices on some pretty interesting books that constantly pulled me out of the story.
Dani was my favorite. It's pretty rare to have an unattractive woman, even in a book where we can't see her, as the lead. This isn't a new character but it's always been written as a man.
I thought just because other people didn't like this book didn't mean I wouldn't so I bought it while it was on sale. I do like the idea of the book, infected people running around biting and spreading the infection. They die just like anyone else does but the numbers are overwhelming within days. What's not to like about that? I'm not a very good writer so it's hard to explain what my problem is exactly but the author never brings these characters to life. It's not painful to listen to but I'm not sure I'll finish simply because I don't really care what happens.
A different reader! She sounds like a little old lady and speaks too fast.
Disappointment. Horrible performance
I love P&P. I have the BBC series, movie, paperback, and ebook versions. I thought getting a free audio version was great until I tried to listen to it.
I nearly skipped this book because of a bad review. I glad I went for it anyway. This is the best story in the series so far. The narrarator gives Jane a weird, jersey (?) accent instead of Boston but honestly after a couple of hours listening to a real Boston accent my southern ears would start to bleed. I hated to stop listening when I'd Finnish my commute.
Liked best: kept my interest during commute to work. Least liked: the reader. Her normal voice for Jane is fine but the voices for other characters, especially Isles, is horrible.
She pronounces Rizzoli with a strange emphasis on the z. Felt like I was in a Brian & Stewie sketch every time she says it. She pronounces it Rits-zoli instead of Riz-zoli.
Glad they changed everything for the tv show. Jane and her family in the books are awful. Jane is one of those annoying women that has to be better than all the guys then complains about sexism when no one likes or respects her. No one likes her because she's a jerk. She tells a story about going into a freezing lake after her mother tells her not to because her brothers mock her by repeating their mother. She's telling it to once again show how awful her brothers are. I see another example of her being an idiot. They stay on dry WARM land while she's chest deep in freezing water. Idiot.
So far the books are just Rizzoli and some guy gets a crush on. When do they become Rizzoli & Isles?
Dexter seems to be getting dumber with each book. Pretty bad when an idiot out smarts him.
I don't read any other in the serial killer/hero genre.
Jeff is a pretty good writer but brings nothing as the narrator. I miss the guy from the first 2 books. He really complemented the author's writing.
