I read for pleasure and enjoyment, and do the same for my listening. I am in higher education, and I by the time I am done with my job, I don't want to be educated anymore...I just want to enjoy a good read. Nevertheless, this book was not JUST your average murder mystery. It conveys a social message, and one very pertinent to our time. It really got me thinking about how one's circumstances can have large rippling effects. It was also a good mystery. I was left guessing til the end. There were several plausible solutions, and no way to determine which one was correct. It's been awhile since I've left my earphones in after a run because the book was too good to put down, but that's what I did with this one.
Another great mystery
Virgil Flowers and his relationship with the redneck barn-wood selling female.
I can listen while I do long runs and not get bored.
I always chuckle at certain scenes in the book.
Flowers is fun.
Probably not. I almost never listen to books twice because I already know how they end.
Any other Harry Hole book.
No one in particular.
If you're a fan of Kurt Wallander or Jo Nesbo, you'll enjoy this mystery.
I have not read the print version.
I liked Tempe's relationships with the other male characters.
Tempe rides again
A fun mystery that kept the reader guessing.
Probably not. I very, very rarely listen to books again because I already know how they end. I've only ever listened to one more than once: a Craig Johnson Longmire story.
Can't think of any right off the bat.
yes, it was suspenseful and kept me listening.
I always enjoy Jo Nesbo and Harry Hole. His character was less depressing in this book. You had some hope for the guy.
When Lynley makes his last visit with Isabelle Ardrey.
I liked that she provided pronunciation for the Italian and Pakistani words.
no. WAY too long.
I got really tired of it and was ready for it to be over.
Yes, it is so entertaining;I laugh every time I think about some of the scenes.
Jo Grey and his relationship with his human staff was the best part about the story.
She did a remarkable job portraying all the characters.
It's no epic novel such as The Kite Runners or The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, but certain scenes still make me laugh outloud when I recall them.
Fun and kept me listening!
Yes, I thoroughly enjoyed the story. The main character was complex; the plot was intriguing; the mystery was difficult to solve.
When he and his future wife meet for the first time.
No, I have not, but I will listen to him again.
No, it's an enjoyable read, a good mystery that kept me guessing til the end, but it wasn't a soul-gripping type of book. For that I'd read Khalid Hosseini
It ranks in the top 30% or so.
I liked the protagonist who was searching for his wife.
I always enjoy Scott Brick's performances. It's hard to compare, because I think they are all 4-5 star performances.
I prefer the single books of Coben's more than the Mickey Bolitar series, and this one was not a disappointment.
I don't know.
When we realize who the bad guy is.
I don't know.
no. I wanted to savor it and have it last.
Lehane is a great story-teller. No higher praise than that is possible
no. I only listen to books once because I already know how they will end.
I don't remember.
I don't know.
no. I enjoyed it, though.
not memorable, but it got me through two 20-mile runs! That's pretty good.
