  • Heath Ledger: His Beautiful Life and Mysterious Death

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 22 mins)

    Young, cocksure, handsome and absurdly talented, Australian actor Heath Ledger shot to prominence with his first Hollywood film "10 Things I Hate About You": and a star was born. With huge charisma and smouldering looks lighting up the screen in a series of subsequent films, Heath was soon established as Hollywood A-list, dating a series of beauties such as Heather Graham and Naomi Watts, and living every young man's dream.

    Story

    This book is based vastly on press accounts and interviews of Heath during his life. It is mildly biographical, but there is way too much quoting of reporters and not enough "the story of Heath Ledger's life." If you're looking for a good biography, this is not it. Also the narrator's attempt to adjust his Aussie accent as he quotes others is a bit unsettling.

    Determined to find out what happened to her former deputy chief, Jack Fielding, murdered six months earlier, Kay Scarpetta travels to the Georgia Prison for Women, where an inmate has information not only on Fielding, but also on a string of grisly killings. The murder of an Atlanta family years ago, a young woman on death row, and the inexplicable deaths of homeless people as far away as California seem unrelated. But Scarpetta discovers connections that compel her to conclude that what she thought ended with Fielding's death and an attempt on her own life is only the beginning....

    Rene says: "Too much dialog, too little story"
    "Great story! Bring back Kate Reading as narrator!"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a great new Scarpetta novel with plenty of twists and turns.


    How could the performance have been better?

    This narration is hard to follow. I agree with other reviewers that the quirky personality of Scarpetta is lost. Kate Reading did such a better job of capturing the characters, their personalities, and regional accents.

    From Andre Agassi, one of the most beloved athletes in history and one of the most gifted men ever to step onto a tennis court, a beautiful, haunting autobiography. Agassi brings a near-photographic memory to every pivotal match and every relationship. Never before has the inner game of tennis and the outer game of fame been so precisely limned.

    Patrick says: "Just an Incredible Story!"
    "Great, engaging book, not good narration"
    Overall

    I loved this story, not a huge tennis fan, but always liked Agassi. The book is definitely long, but truly engaging and interesting. I could not stand the narrator. His voice was breathy and whiny, he uses the same one manly voice for all the male characters, and the same goofy girly voice for all the women, making otherwise strong women sound ridiculous. If the book had not been so good, I would have given up. It would have been nice to hear the book read by Andre himself, but alas. Otherwise wonderful insight and an amazingly detailed autobiography from a legend.
