The book kept me intrigued until the ending. It ended abruptly with many issues unresolved. Will there be a sequel?
I bought this book because of Patricia Cornwell's Scarpetta novels. I still have 5 hours to go and I still can;t find a reason to go on. I have bo idea what it's about, it starts out as a murder mystery and continues on with the chief of police, deputy commissioner and a reporter that take turns whining about their miserable lives so much that it takes over the entire story.
This is a disappointment
Great book with many twists and turns. I almost didn't buy this book because of the negative reviews. So glad I didn't listen to them.
Couldn't continue listening to this. Too much unbelievable tough guy talk, very little story line, very little action.
Perhaps the storyline is good, but I can't tell because the narration is soo bad. Maybe this guy can perform for men, but he can't narrate for women (at least in this book). Even though it's only 2+ hours long I can't listen to it anymore.
Boring,silly I wish I could get a refund for thus book. It Was so bad that after an hour I couldn't take the torture anymor and had to put an end to my pain.
Unfortunately because I listened to L.A. Requiem, before purchasing this book my expectations were that the narrator would portray the kind of "tough guy" persona that we expect from a "private eye". This narrator is too gentle with a sing,sing voice that has become so irritating that after only a few chapters into the book, I cannot contimue on with listening to it. I don't understand why they change narrators with series books. Don't they understand that the narrator becomes the character. Audible should have a refund policy for these types of circumstances.
I enjoyed all of her books. I enjoy the lighthardnessr and humor she brings tot he character.
Having just reached voting age, Jack Kennedy was the fist president I ever voted for and I remember his assassination as if it was yesterday. Stephen King did a great job referencing the events that led up to the loss of what may have been one of the greatest presidents we've ever had. I enjoyed this book from the beginning to the end so much that I will listen to it again.
Because there was a change in the narrator and because of the complaints from the naysayers, I thought I would have a problem listening to this book. But, I am happy to report that I thoroughly enoyed the book and the narrator. My only complaint is that I have to wait so long for another book. Jim Butcher get to work!
