    Dexter Morgan is not your average serial killer. He enjoys his day job as a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department... but he lives for his nighttime hobby of hunting other killers. Dexter is therefore not pleased to discover that someone is shadowing him, observ­ing him, and copying his methods. Dexter is not one to tol­erate displeasure... in fact, he has a knack for extricating himself from trouble in his own pleasurable way.

    Story

    Jeff Lindsey is an excellent writer, and should stick to that. He brings little to the story in the way of character interpretation and should leave the reading to someone else. The story is good, though Dexter seems awfully dense when it comes to figuring things out. It needs more of Dexters darker side, something Lindsey does well. While I enjoy the Dexter books, I won't be getting any more that Lindsey reads.

    Since his mother’s death six years ago, Carter Kane has been living out of a suitcase, traveling the globe with his father, the brilliant Egyptologist Dr. Julius Kane. But while Carter’s been homeschooled, his younger sister, Sadie, has been living with their grandparents in London. Sadie has just what Carter wants — school friends and a chance at a “normal” life.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not the best book I've listened to, I think I might be a little too old for this kind of story.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Get rid of the female narrator, she seems to have two volumes- loud and louder, and a painfully piercing voice. It was a relief every time the male voice took over.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    As I said, the female could've turned the volume down a bit. Her voice was hard to listen to and gave me a headache.


    Was The Red Pyramid worth the listening time?

    Not really

  • Freakonomics: Revised Edition

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 55 mins)

    Story
    (1192)

    Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He is a much-heralded scholar who studies the riddles of everyday life, from cheating and crime to sports and child-rearing, and whose conclusions turn the conventional wisdom on its head. Thus the new field of study contained in this audiobook: Freakonomics. Levitt and co-author Stephen J. Dubner show that economics is, at root, the study of incentives: how people get what they want, or need, especially when other people want or need the same thing.

    David says: "Good, but be careful"

    Story

    I like the "short story" type format, good for an hour or so of listening, and possible to come back to a week or more later without having lost the "story line". Very interesting, thought-provoking studies.

    That said, what's with the weird little random musical interludes? I'm guessing it's to add variety to the reader's somewhat stilted style, but I find the music annoying.

  • Unnatural Exposure

    Story
    (319)

    The body of an elderly woman is found dismembered in a Virginia landfill. Scarpetta initially believes the clues mirror that of a serial killer she's tracked before. But upon further investigation, she discovers puzzling pox-like erruptions on the woman's body that, perhaps, point in another direction.

    Joanna says: "Interesting Story Ruined by Narrator"
    "Really odd narration by C.J.Critt"

    Story

    The story is great, as most Cornwell books, but the narrator makes me feel as though she believes I am either a small child or have an IQ under 60. She speaks VERY slowly and deliberately, pausing in odd places, and seems to think that commas need long pauses, periods longer, and chapter breaks a long dead air space. It detracts considerably from the story and is hard to listen to.
