I enjoyed this book; it was an interesting look at the topic of psychopathology. However, it focused nearly all on his research and not broad look at the state of research in the field. So it's hard for a layperson like me to see if this is just his view from his research perspective, or if this is really state-of-the-art. Worth reading if you're interested in the topic, but probably not the definitive source.
He did a fine job. I didn't really notice the narrator, which is a compliment.
No, it's a nonfiction book.
Good characters, believable plot, solid writing. Narration good. Really like the novel.
Ian Rankin is always worth reading.
Intriguing plot, very well written. I'm not crazy about spy novels in general, but leCarre is always good.
Interesting story, Tana French is a very good popular writer, with nice visual images and strong writing. This was a VERY long book, which is not a bad thing in my opinion, but there's a lot of main character reflection (done in the first person, which is fine), which I found a little tedious. Still kept my interest, though.
Pelecanos' characters are always good - believable, lively, unpredictable.
Good reading. Best readers are those who do such a good job you don't notive them, and Mr. Graham met that criterion.
No, even though I enjoyed it, there are too many other good books.
Yes, enough action to keep you interested. Mostly this series has great characters.
They are all good. Very believable and likable.
The main characters (doctor and detective) were not well drawn - Doctor was a know-it-all, perfect type, the inspector was just dumb - and he wasn't supposed to be. A really lame plot.
The problem I had with the narrator was I couldn't distinguish who was saying what in dialogue. No enough differentiation. Besides that he was good.
All of them - all were predictable and not that interesting.
This is the first book in the series; maybe the following ones are better.
Hiaasen is always entertaining. Yes, his books are predictable overall, but full of lively and unexpected dialogue and small plot twists.
Asner was great - very versatile voice that illustrated the characters well.
Good writing, really interesting characters who definitely aren't sugar-coated. It started out more interesting than it ended, but overall a strong thriller.
Didn't keep me on the edge of the seat, but kept my interest.
The best narrators make you forget someone's reading the book, and this narrator did this. She made the story prominent, not her performance.
Ending needs to be snappier. Not a good tag line, I know.
