Could he read any slower?? I am a big Larry McMurtry fan but after trying to listen for a few hours I had to delete this book because, aside from the story going nowhere, the reader was driving me crazy. I even increased the speed on my iPod but it didn't help. At the risk of sounding mean, I will avoid any other books narrated by this reader.
I didn't read the print version
No - way too much time spent listening to teenage girl angst.
Yes, I've heard Stephen Hogan before and like his reading in general and I thought the performances of both readers were fine here.
No - I love a long book
I must have blanked out somewhere along the storyline (I listened to the end twice before giving up) so --- who was the murderer?? - I'm so confused...
I'm still listening but want to give an early review just to say I've tried listening to Dick Hill read in the past and could not get through the book. There is little inflection in the voices of different situations or characters - he is just boring to listen to. I will update this review if I can actually get through this book but I will certainly not download another one read by him.
I only tried this reader again because I wanted to listen to a Jack Reacher story but it just isn't worth the torture - sorry Dick Hill. Maybe you can put more feeling into your future readings
Dick Hill really should reconsider how he reads a story - I even tried speeding up the tape but it didn't help. It was torture and I had to give it up after a couple of hours. I'm sorry I couldn't rate the story section more than one star (I would have preferred to leave it blank) as it isn't fair to judge the story if I can't listen to it but this program would not allow me to write a review without at least giving one star.
Get a different person to read his books
Get a different performer
I wish I could have listened to enough of it to make a judgement
Someone who takes a VERY long time to comprehend words
Hire a different reader
I've never listened to such a slow reader - I thought I had the setting on 1/2 speed. I could not even get through the 1st chapter without wanting to pull my hair out.
I wish I could have gotten far enough into the book to give an opinion
I do not wish to insult Dick Hill but please ask him to read like a normal person and not in slow motion. I feel like I wasted one of my monthly choices as there is no way I can listen to this book.
I couldn't get through this book - not because of the story but because the reader was making me crazy. Could he read any slower? When I saw the 4 star rating I didn't want to give up but even after speeding up my ipod I still found him so annoying that after about 3 hours I finally deleted the book. Maybe I'll try the hardcopy.
