Probably not the author but I think I kept listening because Lorelei King did a good job.
Lorelei King did a great job with all the characters. She was really good.
A bit to slap sticky for me and I'm not a romance fan but I did listen to the whole book so what does that say about me.
I haven't read the book but I sure would not recommend the audio book to a friend.
Danger. Don't listen to this book while driving! It's monotone will put you to sleep.
I guess I just pick them wrong because this is the third audio book that the narrator is recording in his sleep. I will give audible one more chance because of my free credit and if that one is bad then I'm done. I have had some great listens and I do have my favorite narrators but they aren't always doing what I want to read or rather listen to. I don't think audible gives a long enough sample listen for a person to make a good decision. I made my selections in the last three books because of the author and reviews but sadly they just didn't deliver. Are you listening Audible, my next selection is going to decide if I stay or quit.
This was a filler book for me. Something to fill my listening time until something better came along. As it turned out I liked this book. Didn't love it but liked it. The narrator was great and I will look for more audible books that David Chandler has done.
I was looking for a series that I could enjoy listening to but I don't think this is the one. It's not bad, just not for me. I might in the future purchase another CJ Box but I don't think I could do the entire series, it's just a little to unbelievable for me. Lot's of twist and turns so it does keep you interested. His daughter and wife just don't ring true. Like I said OK but not great. I'm waiting for the new Stephen King. I loved Bag of Bones by Stephen King. If Stephen King is not for you but you like mysteries then you might just like CJ Box.
Save your credit or your money because this one is not worth it. I have never been so bored with an audio book. This just goes on and on and gets nowhere. Separate narrator for each character doesn't help this at all. Each one tells their story but none of them are very interesting and they just go on and on until you want to get out the spork and finish it. I jumped the gun and used my credit for this book because I have listened to other Jodi Picoult books and liked them.
What a waste. Can a person die of boredom? I have to go check my pulse.
Not sure what genre this is. Is there a just plan bad genre.
None of the narrators seem to hit the right note for their characters.
The narrator is just awful. The loud speaking as if in the back ground is beyond annoying and she has absolutely no variation in the characters voices or personalities with exception of the parents who end up sounding like children. Her timing is so off I wonder how in the world she got this job. I read the first book in the series and loved it. I was over joyed to see this in audible. I have never disliked a narrator as much as I do this one. I can't stress enough what a waste of my credit this was. I do listen to audible all the time and this is the first audible book I simply can not finish. I purchased this because other reviews said how good it was. I don't know how it is even remotely possible for anyone to say that unless they love listening to young children with high pitched voices on a play ground.
If nothing else I hope this review will save someone else money or a credit.
Not in audible. Read the book instead.
I might, just to hear Stephen Kings voice. It was spot on and I really feel it made this book more interesting. I usually pass on books that are narrated by the author because most of them come off as dull and flat. Not Mr. King. He really is good.
I don't care for this question because I feel in a good book all the characters should be favorites. They should all add to the ebb and flow.
I have both listened and read other Stephen King books. This is a good one. For whatever reason it did not frighten me as much as Duma Key (one of my favorites) but that's not to say it didn't have some intense parts. It did!
This book moves along at a good pace. Not to fast and not to slow. Great twist and turns. I will admit that I did not listen to it before I went to sleep but it was not so scary as to make me stop listening. Again I loved Mr. Kings narration. Hope he has plans to read more of his work. He is that good.
This is my first listen of Ron McLarty. I loved his performance.
I wish I could have done nothing else but sit and listen to this book but I'm glad I didn't because it gave me something to look forward to.
This book is not about
I'm sure some people would benifit from this but it just didn't make it for me.
Simply one of the best books I have listened to in a very long time. I've enjoyed other audible books but not anything like this one. Claire DeWhitt is not sugar coated. She's tough talking, insightful and intellegent. The New Orleans setting is spot on for after "the storm" as are the characters and story line.
It's rare when a book and a narrator are such a perfect match and this one is just that. Carol Monda is Claire DeWhitt in my mind. She was beyond perfect.
This is the perfect book to listen to. I am very picky about the narrators I choose to listen to and though I did not read the book I truly believe that the author and narrator are a perfect match here.
I thought it started out a bit slow but still I listened and I am very glad I did. I will purchase the book just to "re-read" some of the passages that not only moved me but made me want to ponder them a bit longer. Thank you Audible for making this book affordable otherwise I might have missed it and that would have been a shame.
