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!
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.
Even though I do enjoy Stone's sexual high jinks, it was nice that he wasn't looking for somewhere, anywhere to put his d**k in.
Everything centered around a main story and it was more cohesive.
Can't come up with any. Stone Barrington is a unique character. I always laugh over something Dino and Stone do or say.
I'm kind of biased because l've always loved him as an actor but I must say, a couple of times, I did not think it was Tony.
Yes. I WAS PISSED OFF BY THE WAY IT ENDED!!! Mr. Woods if I ever see you in person, I'm going to give you a talkin' to!
I really enjoyed this one. It was a bit different than the other's.
I must admit, initially I purchased this book due narrator and the first chapter, I enjoyed "The Voice" more than the novel. I stopped listening until I felt I could listen to the story. I began listening from the beginning once again and I quickly got over "The Voice" and pretty much listened straight through. Now I want to read or listen to the original version of Hamlet. Mr. Armitage gave a wonderful performance but in the end I truly enjoyed the novel more. Having the authors explain how and why they came up with the idea of the novel, was icing on the extraordinary cake.
In the past I have read or listened to David Baldacci, John Sanford, J. D. Robb, Lee Child and a great deal of non fiction. This novel has all the elements of a great suspense/thriller novel and I would and will recommend to all my friends that have similar taste in reading/listening choices.
No, this my first, only because I wasn't sure of female voices and "The Voice". I am pleasantly surprised.
Once I began listening to the story and not the narrator, that's pretty much what I did. Our daughter is an adult and she visits often, but I am no longer a full time, hands on Mom. My time is my own!
Now I have to listen to these authors interpretation of Macbeth!
Entertaining, interesting, fun
For most of the book. In a few places it lagged but picked quickly and easily.
Sometimes it was hard distinguishing characters.
The pain of losing a child, was heart wrenching.
I can't wait to listen to more of Sky Stone. I hope the author writes quickly
How the pathologist, planned and executed that plan.
Yes, pretty much the same. I do like him but I have difficulty telling one character from another, more often than I would prefer.
Dr. Mengele II
I do enjoy, the fact that Lucas has found happiness with Weather and family life but it took some of the edge of the cliff situations and some of his more colorful bad choices away. Those were enjoyable and those "Oh Boy, Hold On" situations away, I miss them.
I am a J. D. Robb fan, have read/listened to all the "In Death" series. I have become a fan of Rhys Bowen & "Her Royal Spyness" series. It is a much lighter and no where near as technical as Robb but I enjoy her "Lightness" and the humor. And, some how or another, I found another, "Tall, Dark & Handsome" Irishman! Both rouges, one a billionaire and one penniless. The narrator, Ms. Killgren is amazing, I enjoy her cast of characters a great deal. A narrator can make or break a good story, Ms. Bowen & Ms. Killgren are a winning combination.
Georgie, hesitant, but fearless.
An amazing narrator. Her LAMDA training shines through. An extremely talented voice actor.
Queenie, she's a mess but a well intentioned mess. The interaction between her & Georgie, almost always make me laugh, out loud. I have to pause & let my husband listen, he laughs too!
I wish Rhys Bowen wrote faster! I love Georgie, Darcy, Queenie, Grandfather, Belinda and would/will buy every single book!
