One of the few really "stand out" books I've read or listened to for quite a while. Well written and just as important in this context, WELL READ--excellent reader. I'd recommend this book highly.
Terrible reader. The actual narration was "ok" but when character voices were done, the worse I've ever heard. It spoils the story and I'll never buy another Audible book using Terry Ross.
Also, While the story line was interesting, there were too many Unfunny but trying to be cute sexual comments--sounded childish and took away from the ability to take the book seriously.
Besides get a better reader, there were too many Unfunny but trying to be cute sexual comments--sounded childish and took away from the ability to take the book seriously.
It was terrible!! Bad character voices--I'll never get another where Terry Rose is the Narrator.
Anger in that I paid for the book and felt compelled to finish it, but then I was driving Interstate 5 and little alternatives.
I don't usually trash a book, but reading a BAD job.
It's either the reader or the recording or both--I tend to think it's the reader however. It's hard to listen to the story for any length of time as the
Phil Gigante has narrated
No, but that's based on the narrator of this one.
I put off making this review since I really don't like to say anything bad about people--least in a way it could affect their livelihood or to embarrass them, but after trying to listen to yet another short session of Patrick Lawlor, I decided I needed to vent my frustration.
The story line was unbelievable, the manufactured drama of music and sound affects distracting and annoying and too preachy. I'm sorry, but I've listened to all of his books up until now and Cross Country has made me leery of buying any more.
Great Book, great reader--what more could you want? Just enough of the supernatural not to be preachy or phony.
I'm a fan of Dean Koontz so half way through this I had to go back and check to see if possibly it had been ghosted by another author. If you were looking for an uplifting, spiritual dog book, this might be ok, but it's title should be something akin to "Lassie Come Home" and not listed as a thriller or mystery. It was too preachy and simply so unbelievable to be distracting. Also, a bad reading--the reader did not handle the male characters at all well to the point of distraction. I would have quick half-way through, but against my nature and I was curious, but didn't enjoy the book at all.
The bad read distracted from the book--Rhyme's and Amelia's reader should be reading nursery rhymes not mystery thrillers--the reader spoiled the book--sorry.
Absolutely the best book I have read!
