The narrator is overly emphatic and reports trivial facts with an attitude of indignant disapproval. Thus, when events which should be related with a more serious tone are read, the voice remains the same.
The book is informative and worth listening too. There is no comic relief unless you want to chuckle at the author's obvious political agenda.
The Native Americans are portrayed in a sentimentalized glow. Chiefs who made comments to the press worthy of a ten year old child are repeated by the Narrator as though the words were profoundly wise. "White men build houses in the ground!"
I learned a great deal and not for one moment lost interest, even when she is describing a routine day. This book comes with outstanding professional reviews which are well deserved.
Horrible ordeals and experiences are described, yet not embellished to titillate. One realizes this could happen to any one of us.
The Narrator's work is excellent. There is very little foul language in this book which I appreciate. This story lacks comic relief, but is otherwise very well done.
Well written with an engaging style. This well researched story about viruses like ebola and others is alarming. Comic relief and pleasant narration make it a worthwhile nonfiction audiobook..
The author relates an interesting true crime and court drama in an engaging style. The reader comes to know the main characters.
The book includes comic relief and wit. The sadness of the crime is not overwhelming to the reader.
This book includes a primer on criminal law and is also an autobiography of the attorney who wrote it.
The Narrator does a good job and is pleasant to listen to.
Nonfiction works like this keep me hooked on audio books. The Narrator does an outstanding job. The material is scientific, but the author adds fascinating history and amusing anecdotes to make it interesting and humorous. The Narrator captures every bit of the humor with just the right timing and delivery.
This book held my attention. The author did a good job of narrating his own work. However, justice was not done to the British accents. This nonfiction story lacked comic relief, but was otherwise very interesting.
Much of the biographical information about the scientists is drawn out. If you can get through the first 80 percent of the book, the last part is profoundly interesting. The narrator neither adds nor detracts from the story. There is no comic relief.
The narrator does a good job and infuses personality and character into the various people. This book is mostly a list of facts with very little insight into the reasons the villains carried out their senseless crimes.
One feature which stands out is the reader is able to hear what the criminals said when they discussed the murders in private. The police were bugging their house. This feature gives us a clear impression of how evil these men were.
The length of the book was about right, not too long.
This nonfiction account of true crime held my interest. The Narrator brought the characters to life using just the right amount of emphasis and Southern accents. Several times I laughed out loud.
This book was written before the lawsuits about Clark's money were resolved. Some of the information in the writing seems to be padding to make the story longer. Such as long lists of gifts.
Questions about whether the heiress was slow intellectually are never fully addressed.
The book concludes with a sing song eulogy which seems artificial.
The narrator has a shrill voice at times and over does the accent when pronouncing French words.
The narrator speaks in a voice which I describe as a loud whisper. The writing is in English, but the speaker uses French more often than necessary. For example, he calls Paris, "Paree". The French accent is so heavy it sounds like he needs to clear his nasal passages. I finally regretted buying this book and will return it.
