I enjoyed the author's writing style, but the plot relies upon many quickly presented details that I sometimes missed. The story demands rather intense concentration. Unfortunately, my player doesn't let you back up a few seconds for a brief replay. My main objection is that the male narrator's attempt at female voices was distracting right up to the end. I just couldn't get used to it.
If this is typical Penny material, it's my last book of hers.
It just wasn't enjoyable and none of the characters were likeable or interesting.
I regret this purchase. It's a book I will never consider finishing.
As each new clue was uncovered I tried to guess the killer and motive. The author kept me in suspense until near the end. Well done.
I thought January did a great job with the teenager's voice, but she did well overall. A couple of voices seemed similar, but it wasn't very distracting.
I have trouble following some audio books because the details are so critical to the story and I'm distracted now and then. I had no trouble with this story.
I believe one reviewer stated that the description of the law office's procedures wasn't realistic. Maybe or maybe not. However, I find that irrelevant to my enjoyment of the book.
I admired the amount of detail in descriptions of locations. How much research did the author do in advance?
My strongest reaction was a wish that I had previously visited the locations so that I could picture them in my mind as they were described. Still, I enjoyed the verbal descriptions.
I enjoyed the book on the whole but somehow the ending let me down. It was a long build up to a pretty tame ending.
Enjoyed Koontz (Lightning) in the past so maybe.
Not sure, I really disliked the character.
Disappointed in the main character
I struggled so hard to read this and in the end, could not finish it. I really disliked this book but have enjoyed other Koontz books.
This is my first Agatha Christie and I enjoyed it. I liked the fact that I could be distracted for a moment and not be terribly derailed from the development of the plot. There was one minor problem: the narrator seemed to do well with British accents, but the foreign accents all sounded like Transylvania, no matter the nationality of the character. It wasn't horrible; just slightly distracting.
