Hidden is about in the middle of the pack. I have listened to far worse and far better. Nice story.
Jack Harper, just like him.
Not varied enough. My biggest issue with her narration is that she mispronounces Willamette! Living in Oregon, not Orygone, I am getting tired of the mispronouciations. Especially when this isn't live and someone should have caught the mistake and had her rerecord it! It's Will am it, not Willa met.
My extreme reaction is totally about changing place names and landmarks. I've read and listened to many books and the authors don't change the names. It's just irritating, maybe they have to, or maybe the author was too lazy to research.
Despite my irritations I would say it is a good listen, if you get on your plan. I wouldn't pay extra for it. Maybe check it out at the library.
When I first started listening to this novel I was thinking it was a good thing I didn't start with this book because I would have stopped here and not found how much I enjoy Clare, Matteo, and the rest. It wasn't the story itself so much as the interpersonal reactions of Clare and Joy. I wanted to take Clare by the neck and shove her against the wall at every conversation she had with Joy. Maybe it is raising a daughter myself and that Clare seems to be saying one thing while doing another. Joy isn't 12, she's what? 21?
I will continue listening, because I know there is good stuff in there. An author can't sustain a perfect record with every book in a series. Good book, just don't let the stupid interactions get in the way of the story. Please don't let it happen, pretty please.
I love Kate Reading and I love Scarpetta novels. The worst part of the audio edition is that I can listen to it while I cook or clean and that just makes the listening experience not last as long.
In comparison to the other novels I would have to say this one is the middle of the road. If I'd have had a hard copy, I doubt that I would have spent late hours reading. But, with that said, I loved it.
I would definitely recommend it to other fans of Patricia Cornwell and Scarpetta.
This book was recommended to me by a total Stephen King fan. I would recommend it to a King fan or a Guidall fan.
Because it is apocolyptic fiction, I would compare it to many of the post nuclear or environmental disaster novels I have read. I know the Dark Tower series is recommended by many fans, but I am not sure King has captured anything new with this novel. Maybe the others will show a evolution.
I love George Guidall's rendition of the Walt Longmire novels by Craig Johnson. If a novel has Guidall as the narrator I am likely to purchase it, no matter who the author is. Guidall was the perfect choice for The Gunslinger, of course, the voice depicts cowboy like few others I have listened to.
No, extreme reaction. King's books foster a sense of wonderment about how can a guy create such fiction and still be normal. I do love many of his novels.
No, I found the character of Susan to be totally unbelievably naive.
Listening to 11-22-63, but Stephen King right now.
I know the voice and I love it, but I can't place the books I've listened that she narratored.
Maybe, there would have to be a total redo of Susan. Her stupidity drove me absolutely crazy and not in a good way.
I will listen the third one, I'm a glutton for punishment, but kill the Sweetheart killer already. These characters can really stand on their own without her.
I find this series by Charlain Harris to be right on par with the Sookie Stackhouse novels. I hope if a movie or series is considered for Harper and Tolover, that they don't screw it up as they did with True Blood.
I love Harper and Tolover. With the first novel in this series, I have cared about Harper and Tolover more and more. While I do love holding a good book in my hands, being able to take Harper on my walks with my dogs is wonderful. I hope the series continues beyond #4, though since I haven't listened to it yet, I don't know if it will be a final experience. I would guess that many would consider this series to be a
After reading some of the other reviews, I felt I had to add my sentiment to the others who feel that book itself is great! Dick Hill's intrepretations of the characters really grated on my nerves and almost caused me to move on to another book. The female characters are intoned in such a whiny whimpy voice that I wondered what Mr. Hill was thinking. The voices of the daughter also grated on me. The male voices were relatively fine, though they seemed to change a bit as the book went along.
My advice grin and bear the narration, the book is a winner.
