Heavy, heavy, editing.
Not at all. After the first couple of hours the listener starts developing an uncontrollable tic when he hears a synonym, redundancy,or hackneyed phrase. Then, certain events described will bring on nausea and will have to stop listening before the killer is revealed. Don't worry, you can probably guess and save yourself the suffering.
He does great accents and is an excellent narrator.. I hope he got paid a lot.
Sex with the teacher is one of many.
Whats with the glowing reviews of this book? Michael Conelley? Jonathan Kellerman? Really?
This book was hard to stick with. The sentences were read in a repetetive dropping cadence that did nothing for the rich vocabulary of the writing. The young girl reading had no training or editing, mispronouncing many words.
The story was interesting, the descriptions were unusual and conveyed emotion and intelligence. Wish I could have read it instead.
Had to do it to fulfill a Book Club requirement while traveling. It was vexing.
As others have stated, I'm annoyed with Audible, and the book publishers,for this poor effort.
Bought and enjoyed the previous Dr. Quirk books, esp. Christine Falls, but having a hard time with this due to the change in narrator. The cadence gets very tiresome, and the "acting", if you can call it that, isn't good. The character of Dr. Quirk is entirely different. Too bad.
I enjoyed this book more than any book in recent history. This was a great mystery with no ridiculous surprises or twists. Good characters, great plot, very evocative descriptions. What's more, Kevin Kenerly is a fantastic actor and it was a treat to hear this read in such authentic voice. Nothing about it was corny or overdone, and there was no cringing at his female voices, either. Perfectly done. I'm looking forward to more from this author and reader.
