At first I thought 35 hours for a novel was going to be a bit much, but I couldn't unplug my ear buds. Going in I didn't realize that this was part 1 of a trilogy. I can't wait for the Bone Tree to come out. His books about Mississippi in the 60's really makes you sit back and reflect on what you "didn't" know was going on in the South during your own formative years in the North. His books are part history, part family interactions, and part justice. Bravo, Greg Iles! I've seen quite a few reviews criticizing the narrator. I thought he did a great job and kept my interest throughout.
Personally I love audio books because of the different dialects the narrators use. They make you "feel" the book.
"The Help" and, of course, "A Time to Kill". You listen to them and it brings history to the forefront, reminding you that these things actually happened, that people were treated in this way, and a lot of it while you were growing up. You read and learn about it in school but being from the North you really couldn't comprehend the South. These books describe the moments in a way you can comprehend and feel.
All of the above.
Grisham does it again. I understand that he was reluctant to bring back a character from a previous book. My hope is that he does it again. I'd love to hear again from Jake Brigance.
This is by far the worse Patterson book I've listened to....or tried to listen to. The character is so all over the place that it takes you a second or so to remember what he's originally talking about. I'm forcing myself to finish only to see if there's some redeeming quality in the book.
Maybe, if this character isn't a part of the story.
A little to monotone for me. Not bad given the character he had to portray but not good either.
All of them!
I wish Mr. Patterson would write on his own again and not collaborate with other authors.
Reading the book probably would have been a better choice. I'm a fan of the show and it was confusing hearing a voice different from Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic. The narrator tried but missed the mark and sounded boring and old. It would be great to get Fillion and Katic for the audio of the next book!
The best book I've listened to in a long time. The 20+ hours put me off at first but I actually finished it in 3 days. Full of laughter, sadness, hope, dispair and surprise after surprise. And the narration was superb.
I've been a fan for years but feel this book did not live up to previous books. I found it jumping around too much. I had to go back several times to see if I missed something.
