Definitely. We'd all love to "think" we know what our animals are thinking - but do we really? A very telling listen that let's you get inside each character.
When Maggie goes into Marine Mode
Love this narrator
A very well told story - has all of the great Crais suspense but with added humanity. Enjoyed seeing the world through Maggie's eyes.
I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know these characters. Julia Spencer-Fleming lets you in - which is a rare thing in most authors. They're all still growing, learning, changing & evolving - which means never a dull moment!
The only other series that comes close is the Chief Inspector Gamache series by Louise Penny.
I really like her
Make a Joyful Noise
I love Grisham too! - but it was difficult to go backwards for me. I wish such a great story teller would use his talents to give us something to think about relevant to today's issues.
Great narrator - same old racial story.
Just as good - he's one of the best out there.
What's up in Mississippi in 2013, John?
I disagree with many of the reviews on this one. Chick lit? If only women have brains and hearts and souls - maybe. Steven White's flawed characters are refreshing - and yes they do question themselves ad-nauseum, but don't we all?
Jonas hiding the guns - smart kid
You'll laugh and cry and want to move to Three Pines.
Louise Penny has the remarkable gift of intertwining a true mystery (and in this case two mysteries) with real characters whom she allows you to know deeply. I don't know how she does it, but instead of being an observer you feel as though you are there with them. You feel the brutal cold and smell the acrid sweat and taste the café au lait.
I absolutely love her writing style and cannot get enough.
Can't help myself - as much as I adore Gamache, Three Pines would be incomplete without the demented poet, Ruth.
I found myself laughing out loud during the very first chapter, and was deeply moved by the love Gamache feels for his agents - especially rude Nicole (whom I suspect is partially autistic)
Please give us more.
I wanted to finally finish the series after Vince Flynn's passing.
Mitch Rapp, of course
NEVER. The man should have read the books in the series which preceded this one. If he had, he would have better understood that Mitch Rapp is the strong silent type. He doesn't yell, he doesn't talk for the sake of talking, and his strength is in his quiet resolve. I had to MAKE myself finish this listen, just to know what happened - but it was painful. Ken Kilban's words come out like machine-gun fire - loud and barking - no matter which character is speaking. In honor of Vince Flynn, the publisher should re-record this book with Guidall narrating
Yes, it inspired me to never purchase anything narrated by Ken Kilban.
These characters had me laughing out loud with their subtle dry humor. What a refreshing take on the humanity behind day to day law enforcement!
the smart-ass female deputy - what a mouth with a big heart.
too many to name
I was moved to tears by the struggle and rescue during the snowstorm. Maybe it's the Cherokee Indian in me, but I believed every word and felt every emotion.
Can't wait to read more from this author. I also have to say that the narration was exquisite. Too many narrators EMOTE - and this one allowed the words to speak for themselves, which they did beautifully.
