Dean delivers with his unusual gift of prose, but much of the dialogue comes out as preaching to the choir. The bad guys are exceedingly evil and the good guys, of course, are the ones in the big white hats. This becomes a bit simplistic. I wish there was a little more balance, but it is certainly an interesting read.
Probably - only because I am hoping that JD Robb will try an entirely new storyline. I imagine that is hard to do with the 37th book in a series. This book was a rehash of the other 36. The characters have become stagnant. Very little has changed. These characters rarely have conflicts with one another in the work place and Eve's martyrdom is rubbing thin.
I like the narrator, but somehow she comes out a bit abrasive as Dallas. I sometimes have to turn the volume down for a bit until the rant is over.
Please dear author, find some new angles and new character flaws. Have Eve get pregnant or Peabody get sucked into a cult - anything but the tried and true. How many times can we have Eve while battling her own childhood demons take on the heinous criminal element almost single handed as her understanding billionaire husband makes sure she eats and sleeps?
OK folks who disagree - suspend your need for reality and just go with it! One of the best Koontz books I have heard in a long, long time!
As a Sookie fan, this book wasn't what I had come to expect from Harris. This is a rehash of previous plots that failed to deliver. I kept expecting it to get better and it just never took off.
Davina Porter is an excellent narrator and this story richly deserves its unabridged context! Thank you for making this fantastic series come alive! I can only hope the next book in the series is on its way!
Boring and predictable - terrible narrator!! I couldn't even finish the book. I expected better!
But what a terrible ending!!!!!!!!!!
Thank goodness I read this book before listening to this choppy abridged version! As with the previous 3 books in this series, I am hoping that audible will come out with the unabridged version along with a new contract for the previous reader. Gabaldon fans, don't waste your time on this one.
For me, this book relied too much on same themes repeated endlessly. I had no interest in finishing the story after listening to it for over 30 hours. I kept thinking that somewhere along the line it would pick up and go somewhere. Personally, I was disappointed.
Bosch may be back, but the first half of the book is too far back in time to pique the listener's immediate interest. Too much time is spent clarifying crime solving protoccols. This was more of a "how-to" book of criminal investigation masking the real threads of the story. I missed Bosch's witty dialouge and sarcasm. This book isn't the author's best work. I hope Bosch comes back in a bigger way next time.
