I was enjoying this book up until the last hour. I don't understand how the main Justice Dept. character can be so stupid - it just doesn't make sense. I agree with the reviewer that says the government agents look bumbling - too much so. The narration is good, and I guess I would give this a passing recommendation - barely.
This book was absolutely riveting. The ordeal these men faced was amazing and the story of their survival is absolutely fascinating. The writing and the reader are great. The reader's voice and pacing perfectly fits the story. He doesn't add too much drama as the story needs no drama, yet it is not a dry rendition.
This book is definitely worth the read. The stories are up and down, some LOL funny, some sad and poignant, some boring, some overly long. But they are different and interesting. There were times I just laughed in the car over something I read.
Definitely worth the listen
The reader of this book is fabulous. Her pace easily goes with the characters and allows you to lose yourself in the story.
The story, while good suffers from a little bit of whinyness from Sarah. Her character loses her independence, while I understand some of it there is a bit much of it. Otherwise the story is good with a good ending.
Maybe its because I didn't read the Grant County series but it would be nice to get some background/closure on what Lena did.
I'd recommend this book
This book started out good but as I listened to it I got a little bored with it. Charlie became a bit of a dolt and it is difficult to believe he was a lawyer. Jenna wasn't much better. I don't have any reason to read another book in the "series"
This book is the usual Scalzi mix of characters, action, and story. The narration was good. The only thing I wish is that the narration would leave out the "he said" "she said" The narration is good enough that I know which character is speaking
This is a typical mix of Moore's irreverent characters who are both poignant and funny. It is a little hard to keep up some time with the flow but that doesn't detract from the story. The narration is excellent. I can't wait already for the next Christopher Moore book
Characters that are not all good or all bad and the story flows well. Iike the mix of humor and seriousness
When all the Fuzzy's appeared
MEH. There are better books by the same author. Any of the Andy Carpenter books
Less sappy dialog between the two main characters. The story was good but was undone by stupid diaglog
He voices were good. He could differentiate between men and women
NO. Not a good enough story or characters
Try the Andy Carpenter books.
Yes, This book was OK, but not up to the other two I've read in the series (The first and the sixth)
The narration is not as good as the other two books
The Female characters with the exception of Amanda were whiny and emotional which has not been the case in the other books. Usually female authors do a better job and Karin Slaughter does in her other books. I hope this is an outlier as the plots and characters have had depth.
Karin Slaughter's storytelling is excellent. The characters are real with flaws. I disagree with the reviewers that did not like the book because the characters are not supermen/women. Will, Angie and Amanda all have personal demons but are more interesting and believable because of them.
Some of the better Dean Koontz novels and in a different genre Ms Slaughter develops characters like Stephen King
Will Trent and John Shelley
The times that Will beat himself up over being dyslexic
I read this after I read Criminal. I typically like to read books in order. Both books are excellent so its good to know that the books didn't get old or stale.
I did like the reader in Criminal better and I notice that the reader for Book 2 is different yet.
