I didn't read the print version (although I own it...oops, double purchase), but I think that Lauren Fortgang MAKES this story. She is an excellent narrator, and each character has a distinct voice, especially Annie and Hollis. There was never a question over who was "speaking" in the story. So I highly recommend the audiobook version of this book. I am not sure if I would have enjoyed the print version as much without Fortgang's narration.
I've heard that this book is a lot like Radclyffe's other medical romances. I haven't read any of them, but I plan to, so I might edit this review someday.
HOLLIS. :) But then again, I'm a sucker for intelligent women with dark hair who can hold their own, have angst, AND build things. <3 Plus Fortgang's husky voice for Hollis was, erm, amazing. ;)
LOL I don't know.
Honestly, I don't know. I think they complement one another. When I read the book, my "internal narrator" sounds identical to Michael C. Hall, who I think absolutely nails the character. But listening to Lindsay read the book was an entirely different experience, one that I liked just as much.
I like Dexter's dark humor. I found myself laughing aloud several times, even though I knew which observations and jokes were coming up soon.
The first scene, with Dexter stalking the priest, never fails to give me goosebumps.
Yes and no. Yes, because I love this book, and I would love to just sit in a dark room and listen for eight hours on end. No, because I wanted to savor each chapter, and I found myself rewinding repeatedly to listen to my favorite passages again and again.
Listening to the book made me hyperaware of how often Lindsay uses the words "said" and "asked." More variety would have been nice.
"Scary as heck." Especially the part about America's deteriorating nuclear arsenal and just how easy it was to "misplace" some nuclear weapons.
I like the fact that Maddow calls out both sides of the aisle. She's just as tough on Clinton as she is the Bushes.
I like her conversational style. If you enjoy her television program, then you will enjoy the way this book reads.
