I own and love the entire In Death series, listen to them over and over again. Taken in Death, feels too contrived and almost like Robb, just wanted to give us a novella, any novella. I did not enjoy it at all. Tried to re-listen but couldn't.
Listening to Stied Larsson's Millenium Trilogy. If J. D. Robb published more often, I'd listen to them.
The BEST NARRATOR OF ALL. I can use my imagination even more, for a more complete story experience.
I wouldn't have published it. I love Eve, Roarke, Gallahad and the whole gang but was extremely dissapointed with Taken.
Can't wait for next In Death!
I really enjoyed the storyline. I must say Coleen Marlo has improved greatly. Most characters had very distinct voices. I am getting restless with Darcy and Nick ' s relationship. Enough already!!! The ending was great, so it's on to the next story.
This was a departure for me. I took a chance according to reviews and am very pleased with my choice. I shall echo all other reviewers in stating that it is an entertaining and happy listen. At times I had difficulty distinguishing between characters but Ms. Marlo did a fine job. Now it's on to the next book in this series, which according to reviews, is even better!
My husband was wondering what the hell I was listening to. I laughed out loud often. He'd look at me and I would have to replay that part of the story, he agreed, it was funny. The Narrator was perfect for the main and secondary characters. I kept putting off Stephanie Plum, I am savoring every bit of her crazy life now.
I throughly enjoyed this book. it was light and is to listen and to hear all the goofy plot line . my only complaint is on the mispronounced word, hadn't . the reader always mispronounced as hat-ent . it made me cringe everytime. other than that, I really enjoyed it . it reminded me of Lucy and Ethel's crazy antics.made me laugh more than a few times.
I'm always apprehensive about using a credit wasted many a credit on a new to me author. I am very pleased with Chelsea Cain. between my local library and Audible, I am beginning to listen to number 3 in the series. I had always loved listening to Carolyn McCormick. When she stopped narrating for James Patterson, I stopped purchasing his books. Carolyn adds to any book, her voice is very easy to listen to.
It could have been shorter but I still enjoyed it. Characters were likable, a bit long winded. Narrator did a fine job.
Great story but I have to agree with my fellow reviewers, did not care for narrator. It was very difficult going from Katherine Kellgren to this narrator. I am hoping Susan Ericksen, who I love from the In Death series, does better.
The writing. It's hard to find a great story, that combines family, friendship and humor.
Both pepper spray incident. Humor is always wonderful. I laughed through most of the story.
I've always heard that drama is easy and humor, that everyone will find funny, is hard.
The only complaint I have is, that I had a hard time distinguishing different characters. The narrator has a pleasant voice but rarely changed her voice to suit the characters.
Now I have to listen to all of Tara's books!
This series is light, easy and fun . Not everything we read must be serious. There's no moral story, it's taking your brain out to lunch! We all need that from time to time.
I agree, it was longer than it needed to be, but I did enjoy it. Some found fault with switching from the 70's to present time but I didn't mind. It was nice to learn how the women intersected all those years ago and to find out who was the lady in the white hat.
