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 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.
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
