A stand-up comedian poking fun at a great American tragedy.
Perhaps a comic book or the announcement of their firings.
With respectful, serious readers who gave a damn about this great American tragedy - or who could at least fake the respect to which these victims and families are entitled. How dare they have gleeful tones.
All scenes read by these "happy" narrators. I don't expect doom and gloom but let's tone down the implied giggles.
Wish I could have continued this factual book as I felt the content was very interesting and credible.
Tried to ignore the narrators as the book went along, but the glee made me complacent in "enjoying" the destruction of innocent lives and the heartbreak of their families and many friends.
Seems to me the family must have been led astray as to the choosing of the narrators. How dare the narrators "enjoy" this reading. One of this century's most horrific and sad crimes SHOULD NOT be read as though one was skipping down the yellow brick road with Dorothy.
TEN STARS VERSUS FIVE
The authenticity, the bravery, the no-holding back in erasing a depraved animal.
An author with talent, other than the usual so-so
A narrator whose voice isn't fingernails on a blackboard
Maybe. It was a great book!
I enjoyed Laird's performance very much. Will definitely keep an eye out for his narration in the future.
Joe Barrett is an excellent reader for this genre.
These authors are the FBI's original profilers. Smart, gutsy, creative and determined.
I enjoy the credibility John Douglas brings to the table by narrating his own book.
I remember this incident, so it was nice to learn more of the background story.
The interaction between mother and daughter.
The book could have been cut down quite a bit. So much detail re minor characters, I became frustrated. Didn't finish the book b/c it dragged on and on, but had heard enough and was satisfied when I stopped.
The narrator should not have been stuck in a library voice. Had to stop torturing myself.
Only that I pulled the plug.
Could be just me ... I absolutely had to stop listening to this book b/c the narrator was so annoying.
I would not recommend this book as I think it's a waste of time and $$$.
I couldn't finish it b/c the narrator is mediocre.
I found this book creepy - but I don't really know what was going on. Two stars instead of one b/c maybe I just wasn't smart enough to figure it out. Put it down. Money down the drain ...
I've read books since and can't put my finger on it, but I do remember I didn't care for the narrator.
I know a good bit of this sad story, and knowing John Glatt was the author, I expected greatness. I never got to the actual "story" b/c the narrator, Randye Kaye, couldn't have been more monotone and full of glee in her voice. I truly felt nearly out of control and considered throwing my iPod across the room. Glatt, Secrets in the Cellar had first-class writing and Gildart Jackson was perfect narrator. Dump Kate and I'll give your books another chance.
Her skip-to-my-loo voice and monotone to boot. What a loser.
My only other comment is that I wish I could block Kaye from any book I may be interested in. She's one of the most annoying narrators I have ever come across.
