John Stephens has continued to keep the quality of his wonderful new series high and interesting. The value and enjoyment of these books are even greater because of Jim Dale's award winning skills as a narrator. If you liked the first book you will also like this one. It's definitely a series for younger people but that never stopped me from enjoying a book. Have fun!
I love these books but I think the main characters are smarter than portrayed here. It was still enjoyable and recommended.
Only Laurie R King would come up with such an unusual and wonderful theme for a mystery. It was interesting to hear the instructions in the early part of the book to turn the tape over. It took me back to my early days of listening to audio books on tape. This book definitely puts itself in a particular time and place that being SanFrancisco before the turn of the the century. This book is one to read more than once.
I have listened to almost all of the Mary Russel (Sherlock Holmes) books and was looking for other books by Laurie R King to "read" and found these. I am loving the new set of characters and the narration as well! The books are engaging and interesting and have great subjects. I also love that the main characters aren't stupid. The mysteries are deep and interesting and engage the "reader" as an intelligent person. I truly dislike it when the main character of the book has to be stupid in order for the mystery to go unsolved or when the women in the story act like idiots. I like her smart women and men who may just not know a lot about a subject so they bring in other characters who DO to find out what is going on. I, as an intelligent women, love to be treated as such. Laurie R. Kings mysteries are REAL mysteries and truly well written. Thank you, Ms. King!!!
From the very start of this story, the skill of the writer comes through with the skill of the 2 who narrated it. I am looking forward to the series!
I don't know if Charlaine Harris plans to write any more of these books. If she doesn't, I do feel satisfied with how she wraps this one up, solving the mystery from the beginning of the series. It's emotional and powerful and, well, satisfying.
I'm getting more and more addicted to these stories and characters. I also like the addition of the psychic and her grandson in this story. Charlaine is doing a great job of creating an interesting series that makes me want to hear more and more.
This is one impressive author! I LOVE the way she spins the suspense and brings to life the characters!
I have heard many times what a great book this was and I am so very glad I purchased it and listened to it. WOW. The characters and story are quite compelling. I am still thinking about the story weeks later and that is VERY unusual for me. What a tragedy that there are only 3 of these masterful books. I look forward to reading the other two.
I am really enjoying these characters. I have to say though, that Harper is a VERY similar character to Sookie... kind of a variation on a theme. That said, I like Harper as a character better than Sookie. Just personal preference. This mystery was fun and different and I have started to buy all the books.
I wish I didn't like this book now that I know what a brainwashed idiot the author is. Sigh... I think after this I must boycott the author so that he isn't getting any more of this 99 %ers money.
