Andy, Laura, narrated by Grover and the style of the writing I kept wondering if William Landay is actually David Rosenfelt. I would have enjoyed this book a lot more if I didn't love the Andy Carpenter series so much. I felt the only things missing in this book was some humor and Tara.
None of Konrath's gross twisted creepy writing but funny McGlade adult humor, my husband and I were cracking up!
I didn't know this was going to be a religious book or I would have not bought it, that being said, this is an inspirational book and I would highly recommend this book to anyone battling addiction and or of christian faith.
I could relate to Cooper and Lil's upbringing and if I had read this book 40 years ago I would have fallen in love with reading. But at the age of 60, this book is predictable with little suspense. I would highly recommend this book for young adults. Lil is a strong smart role model for women and Cooper an honorable young man.
I have to admit this is my first Nora Roberts book so if this is typical, then I will probably pass on her other books.
My dad was in WW 2 and would NEVER talk about it, after listening to this book I know why. It is hard for me to wrap my brain around what took place. The numbers quoted in this book are staggering! The torture incomprehensible!
I keep thinking about the protesters complaining about the U.S. using water boarding!!
My husband kept saying "I can't believe we are listening to this!' We cringed, shuddered and kept wondering how people can think this stuff up to write, YUCK!!! But, we were cracking up at the end.
I haven't read Crouch or Kilborn, love and know how sick and funny Konrath. If you don't mind listening about creeps, eating faces or pealing eyelids off of victims then help your self to this book.
The books are same old same old type of Andy Carpender story, love my dog, love my girlfriend and get an innocent guy off. Lots of humor, wit and fantastic read by Grover, yeah.
I have never been a Sci-Fi fan but I love J. A. Konrath's Jack Danial series so I thought I would give some of Konrath's other works a try. I was hooked on the first chapter! I was surprised the book has a lot of depth to it and I enjoyed getting to know the characters. Luke Daniels does a fantastic job narrating, especially on Bub!
If you don't know of Konrath, his books are not for the squeamish lots of gore for some people! I'm funny, I can read about gore but can't see it.
This book has to continue because I'm looking forward to # 2!!!!!
This has to be the funnest and grossest book in the series. I was howling when the rat ate McGlade's favorite chopped off finger (middle one of course)! Do not buy the series if you are looking for a good mystery or true to life story line. These books are full of silly puns, unbelievable stories and will make you laugh and grossed out at the same time.
Sample the narrators first,but I love the voices of Susie and Dick. I can't get enough of the series.
I bought the book because I like Robin Roberts but didn't read what the book was about. I assumed it was more to do with the kids growing up. I'm not religious so I had no interest in listening to hymns being sung. That being said I'm sure that is what got them through the times of segregation with such a possessive attitude.
It is a positive book so if you are of a religious faith and like listening to hymns this book is for you.
