Very interesting crime novel. Saw the story on ID, which I found interesting, but the detail in the book makes it a great story. Highly recommend the narrator!
Note to author: Granniss is excellent - your other narrators ... Cyndee Maxwell and Shelby must have been cheap b/c they are the pits!
At least SOME interesting facts. Rule's books are now so painful and disappointing I can't tolerate any further words.
The very first story, much too lengthy, is a warning that the pain will soon be unbearable. Much rather have my toes extracted and wobble around. At least THAT would be interesting!
The length and the boredom. It's truly disappointing that such a formerly great writer has either lost her talent - or her mind.
Enjoyed Merlington's narration the first 1000 books (exaggerated) but at this point each and every one sounds the one before. I find myself ignoring the narrator as I'm nearly positive I've heard it all before.
Time to switch narrators so the books sound fresh.
Oh, goodness. I'd chop them all up, douse in gasoline, and throw in the fire pit. The narration makes me resent them all.
Strongly DO NOT recommend.
(Same reviews are coming as to other Rule books. They're all the same at this point.)
Yes, I would read another Gregg Olsen book even though he tends to write too much, repeat, and generally tell the temperature of the puddles out front. He really needs to scale down his books. Being paid, like a lawyer, for each word?
Never, ever Kathleen Godwin. She reads with such speed and never-changing monotone, hat I kept adjusting to"slow speed." The pace was then much better the words got slurred. Never again.
Is there someone out there with the job of screening narrators?
Too lengthy. Lots of useless details before the actual story starts. I gave up and erased the annoying "noise."
Probably the first third of the book. It was unnecessary and boring. I knew the basic story and kept wondering if I had the wrong book. I'd go back and read the description and had to convince myself that I had the right story.
Nope. Don't recommend.
Cross Heart is not only my favorite Alex Cross book but is one of THE greatest books on Audible.
The end of the book ... but is it really?
Alex Cross, no doubt!
No, didn't make me laugh or cry. It scared the heck out of me as to what the next "page" would bring. The most tense part of the book was nearing the end.
Highly recommend this book! James Patterson is back! Hopefully, he threw all of those horrible writers and narrators out with the bath water.
Loved, loved, loved this book! All the narrators are perfect for their characters. The background sound effects had me feeling that I was part of the drama. One of the BEST books I have ever read or listened to - ever.
This narrator is IRRITATING, INCOMPETENT and INEPT.
The blame rests with you, Patterson. Listen to your chosen narrators. This loyal reader and listener is ticked.
Red Dragon is a reasonably interesting book but the narrator sucks the enjoyment out of the story. Alan Sklar, find a day job.
The Lincoln Lawyer was the first of Michael Connelly's books I read. Fantastic story and narrator. If you're just meeting Connelly, you're so lucky - he has written many books which await you. Highly recommend.
I can't say I "enjoyed" this book b/c that would be rather sick. I believe the book is credible, though some instances may be enhanced either in the child's mind or to make the story more sensational. Having worked in legal settings dealing with child abuse and abusers, I do, for the most part, believe the cruel instances in this book did happen.
Not quite finished reading the book but can't imagine anything towards the end that would take away a star.
This book was reasonably good but did drag on quite a bit. I found myself thinking of daily chores instead of focusing. Lots of playing back. It's fine but not nearly as interesting as I had hoped.
The sing-song narrating grated on my nerves to the point that I have no idea what this story is about. Goodbye, Mr. Collins - I won't hear your voice again.
