Pretty much a waste of time, but maybe that's why we read books like this.
illogical and poorly executed fantasy. The author intentionally the reader. Don't waste your time and money on it.
Typical Dan Brown book. However the story ends WAY before the book ends.
The last two or (nearly) three hours are wasted time.
I don't know whether the book itself is boring or whether the narrator pushed it in that direction, but in either case, the story line seemed quite predictable, the ending totally manufactured and the characters ... well cardboard would be a compliment.
But worst of all was the narration which was often unintelligible and at its best condescending to the South.
Pas this one by.
I guess if you are into soft core pornography you might enjoy this book.
Otherwise, it's just ... boring
oh, the narrator is good, but the story is ... boring.
This is an historical mystery with a real mystery with a rich fully developed setting, and featuring interesting believable characters. I won't say more because anything I stay might spoil the experience of reading, er, listening to this book.
The narration, after a little acclimation period is really quite wonderful.
If I could, I'd give it about eight stars
What do you get when you have an honest, well plotted story filled with people you like (and people you hate), an excellent writer and a superior narrator? You get an extraordinary audible book.
The production is crisp and Scott Brick is a pleasure to listen to. He does not intrude on the text of the book.
I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.
Mr Dee, a former NYC policeman, and I understand, a native of Yonkers, NY creates a close to perfect police procedural. His ability to evoke the feelings not only of his detectives, but also of the setting is extremely satisfying.
