I certainly enjoyed listening to this - Thomas Harris is an excellent narrator and writer, and I loved listening to his first three books as well. However, compared to the first three books in the Hannibal series, this book seemed less researched and rushed to release. I still think this is an excellent book, and certainly worth the read.
The narrator did well, considering the material was pretty ordinary. I like long 'epic' books, but this one actually felt LONG. It was like the author was dragging the word count out so that it was similar in length to the previous books, but had nothing more to write about. The plot was predictable and certainly not Goodkind's best work.
The narrator is excellent - Mooner's voice is hilarious.
The book is like all of the Stephanie Plum series, same story but different enough that you want to listen to it anyway.
Excellent book and great narration. Occasionally the narrator's pauses were mildly distracting but I think I was actively listening for the epic pauses becuase of the other reviews were unfairly critical of this.
This book should not read this on public transport - unless your prepared for the strange looks from other passengers when you crack up laughing out loud! This book is a hoot. The only dissapointing thing is book two isn't available yet.
The book is long, which is great for 'value', however the writing is a bit basic and predictable - particularly for the first half. The narrator Sam Tsoutsouvas is fantastic - he brings the characters to life and the book was made better becuase of his narration.
Apparently you can't buy this book in Australia due to publishing restrictions - what a tease.
