Yes, definitely. Loved the way everything came together
The last sentence.
The performance was stilted, had a "reading" quality. I can't help thinking the book would have been a 5 overall with a different narrator.
You think you know what's going on, but you don't!
Great story, really would have been better with different narration. There isn't even that much difference in the two voices that it helps the movement of the story - even distracting at times.
Great Wrap Up!
This book brings back everyone (who hasn't already been killed) and wraps up their stories. This is what a last book of a series should look like - closure for everyone. I especially liked the very last Sookie words, but won't give them away.
She IS Sookie - the awesome twang is there along with a good job on all the other characters.
Sookie always makes me laugh at some point; this was an extremely satisfying book.
Almost anything else. The "hero" is a self-absorbed twit who sounds like a 13-year old with a first crush. He is a stalker, going so far as to stalk his object to her (supposed) husband's funeral. The story is so convoluted and stupid, it hurts. And the narration - If Scott Brick gets any sadder, he'll die, I'm sure of it., or I will of sheer boredom.
The main character and the reader...and the fact that I wasted money on it. On a different note, I hated the fact that "Jake" must have had 3 or 4 concussions, yet never needed treatment, had no effects from TBI, just continued on because he's so tough. What a crock.
He is sooooo slow and soooo serious and every word is sooooo heavy with importance. Very distracting.
...most of them. This book didn't need to have been written, it adds nothing to my library anyway. Wish I could have a refund
Skip it, don't buy it, don't waste a credit. The Myron Bolitar/Mickey Bolitar reads are much better if you need to read this author.
Once or twice, reading same line again is bearable, but many times - not okay. I will listen to it again, though, because it IS a Dortmunder novel.
