I always enjoy the audible version often after reading the print version. The inflections of the readers sometimes differ from my own on just the reading. Audio always helps with a deeper personality insight of the characters and often the pronunciations of names and places.
Kathy Reichs Bones series. I'll say Devil Bones as an example. Great character insight and development. Rich descriptions and a story that easy to follow with out becoming too technical (for very long) and not making you feel like "I'm going to have wade through this to get to the good stuff". Mostly entertaining with some real world detail about times and places.
Yes I have and this is once again a top notch performance.
This book is action packed and full of more character insight that builds through the entire series. This one more than the last 3 or 4 books really push the one sitting button for me. Listening for me is often a guilty pleasure as I like to immerse myself in the story and not be multitasking as I listen. That said, most good books make me want to listen in one sitting, but as daily life is busy, I make myself find a good stopping point and listen over several sessions.
The Cross series not only delivers the mysteries and thrills this type of book is expected to have, but also pulls you into the lives of the supporting characters. Not only do you want to know how Alex Cross thinks and tracks the criminal, but Patterson truly makes you want to know more about the other characters. An example of this for me, is always wanting to know what is going on with the character Nana Mama and learn more about aspects of her life, sometimes separately from the main focus of the story. This book has a good deal of the to offer. If you start reading in the middle of the series, you will find yourself wanting to start at the beginning. It's not entirely necessary, but will add so much more to the story.
