I am a great Clancy fan and Hunt is Clancy in the prime. Unfortunately, the reader mispronounces the occasional word and his accents are terrible. All those characters and only three of four accents and some of those incorrect for the character described by the author. The pacing is just a little off. The emphasise was wrong some times. The flaws were just enough to be grating and drop a 5 star listen down to 3.5. I will look for Mr. Charles as narrator and pass the book by, no matter how good a bargain.
Like the ship board activity, the aura of 1930's glamour was fun
She is Georgie.
Yes - Nice combination of believable characters, history and interesting plot. Doesn't fit the trite formula usually encountered in this sort of books.This book is a light, amusing romp. Nothing great or earthshaking, just fun.
premise of a pretend engagement and that the heroine was neither missish no slutty..
His voice was pleasant and my hands were free to do other things,
no, I just let the pleasure of its company roll over me.
Parts of it were very good, but this author managed to make the sex boring - note to author, we have good imaginations, no need to be so graphic.
Tie up the loose ends with your action sequences. Develop your plots better, flesh out the characters. They seem to be a bit one dimensional. There is no need to make everyone rich because you are too lazy to build a real life for them.
smooth as cream
Yep, write something.
I look forward to book three in the series, but you have the imagination to do better than Book 2. Book 1 of the series is an example of that.
Dick Hill, Yes! Griffin and/or Butterworth never again. They must have used cut and paste from previous novels to write most of the book. What remained of the plot was disorganized and uninteresting. This book was probably written in a weekend and that was a waste of time.
The lack of cohesion.
It was ok. Dick Hill is used for procedurals because he sounds like reading an after action report. He was probably bored to tears by the book just like the rest of us.
This should be the last of the series for the authors. It was the last of a series for me as a reader. I am going to call my library and warn them if they haven't ordered it, don't waster their money.
SOmeone who has never enjoyed a Dallas book.
Absolutely - this was an aberation.
Susan Erikson is the voice of the In Death series.
all of it.
I liked hearing about the characters in a new plot.
but there were dropped threads and shoddy attention to detail. The duo need to hone their partnership style.
The style should improve. The first Dick Francis/Felix Francis novel was not as good as usual too.
Well crafted, good characterization. It is Lee Child at his best and that is very fine indeed..
I like the characters and the thread of the plot about Matt's personal life was ok - the main story line was disjointed and unbelievable. Poorly written. It feels as if Mr butterworth does not yet live up to his father's skill and craftmanship.
This was even better than the other Charlaine Harris series. Well read. Next book in the series is due in October, I am very ready. I buy almost nothing in hardcover, but this series is worth it. Just a super listen, too. The characters are believable even if you wonder about their special abilities. The voice is smooth and certain, Good read. Solid plot.
