Can't put down.
The narrator -- Tandy Angel. She's fun, she's confused, she's bright, she's likeable, she's young, and she's a well-developed character. The narrator was really well suited for this character.
I liked all of the scenes between Tandy and Capricorn Caputo, the detective investigating the deaths in the family.
I could have had I had enough time in one sitting. I really enjoyed this book, but then Maxine Paetro always minimizes the gore and maximizes the character interest.
The ending was expected, but it worked well enough. It was the weakest part of the story, but the narrator is just so good that she made up for it.
I know that the Cork O'Connor character has a following, but the book was just not a very satisfying read for me. Again, this is probably due to personal tastes, but I won't read this author again.
It needed to start out with a bang. The first line didn't grab me and it got worse as it went on. I finally quit listening to it and decided that this writer is not for me.
I thought that Buck Schirner's performance was too "down home." It lacked color. In the past couple of weeks I have listened to books narrated by readers who could do accents, change their voice to fit different characters, and provide depth into the characters. I didn't feel that Mr. Schirner's performance reached that level of proficiency.
Not for me. I'm sure that many others enjoyed it, but it was not for me.
Maybe I started with the wrong book in this series. I can't recommend it and I cannot recommend to a listener who knows this character to forgo this book. It just did not work for me.
This book had very well drawn characters and an excellent narrator. It was somewhat like a radio play, but performed by one reader. I cannot say enough about how well Katherine Kellgren performed on this book.
No, although she creates colorful characters, I prefer other genres.
She's excellent. She was able to deliver the goods -- she understood these colorful and cooky characters and was able to impart their idiosyncrasies to the audience
For me, no, but I am sure she has fans. I can see a Masterpiece Theater production of this book, but it is not for everyone.
The book is fine, it is just not what I was looking for. However, it was well done and well written. I like a "thicker" plot in my mysteries.
I really enjoyed this book. It started off with a good mystery, but in solving the crime, our heroine revealed much about life in London following WW1 and leading up to WW2. I had never read a Jacqueline Winspear before, but I am really glad I found her.
Massie Dobbs was my favorite character because she was smart, kind, gracious, and independent. And she was good at her job. I am looking forward to my next encounter with Massie Dobbs.
This was my first experience with Oriagh Cassidy's narration. She's excellent. I have no complaints.
I would have listened to it all in one sitting, but there's never enough time for that.
I recommend it. It was definitely my cup of tea.
Yes, I did enjoy listening to this book, but there were too many murders actually. A couple would have sufficed since two of the story lines had real possibilities. I would have liked them to have been further explored.
I like listening to Kathy Reichs's stories. For her, I think this is closer to a B- than an A+, but I still liked it.
She's a good reader. I appreciate her work.
Yes, I could see it being a movie.
I recommend it for Kathy Reichs fans. I think they will enjoy it.
Really good listen.
Jake was my favorite character even though he was a flawed, flawed man. Perhaps it was his flaws that made him likeable. If he were my brother or friend, I'd advise him to see a therapist for his inability to let "sleeping dogs lie." But it is also one of the elements that kept this story moving like a freight train through the night.
Scott did a reasonably good job with this material. I've heard better interpreters, but I've also heard worst. He worked for me.
Victim or villain?
I "read" audio books when I drive, clean house, walk the dogs, or work in the yard. However, I could not turn this one off. I've got the cleanest house in the neighborhood and I have this book to either thank or blame.
Typical Agatha Christie
Like so many of Agatha Christie's stories, the mystery revolves around a fixed set of characters. There's a bit of romance, a bit of mystery, a few red herrings, a few suspects, and a lot of clocks
I listen to audio books when I am driving, walking, exercising, working in the house, and walking the dog. I would have enjoyed reading this book, but listening to it was a pleasure. Hugh Fraser is a good narrator and I enjoy his voice and enunciation.
It entertained me.
I recommend this book to die-hard Agatha Christie fans.
I would and have read and listened to other books by Mary Higgins Clark, but I have never listened to one read by Lindsay Crouse before and I will never select another book narrated by her again. I am a Mary Higgins Clark fan, however.
It's not a pleasant topic but most of all, the monotone narration brought nothing of value to the story at all.
Yes, as always, Mary Higgins Clark brings a resolution to the story. There was no way to make this an entirely happy ending, but she ended it justly and as satisfactorily as possible given the subject matter.
I can't recommend this book, but if it were read by another narrator, it might make a difference. The topic is pertinent in today's world, but this rendering did not do it justice.
I would definitely change the direction of the book. I would change the ending. I would have a hero. Every book needs a satisfactory ending. This book lacked that element.
Not yet. There are too many other authors I'd prefer to read.
I enjoyed Book 1 and part of Book 2 the best. I enjoyed how the collapse of Nick and Amy's marriage was described and some of the asides about our current culture.
I would just say that it's a very long listen for something that turns out so badly (for me).
I liked the audio because the narrator is just so perfect for this role.
Jack and Justine are my favorite characters.
He was great for this character, but I have not listened to him before.
I just liked everything about it.
I listen to audio books as I drive, clean the house, and walk the dog. I like the fast pace and short chapters that James Patterson and Maxine Paetro specialize in. This one was a "page turner" for me.
