Probably, I would listen to a bit or check in to the premise first.
I bought some books off the 4.95 sale.
Macon, Macon, Macon
I could see either, with a movie it would be good if they made the beginning and end stronger. The middle was very interesting. For a series it would be good to get some more writers and characters. The best character was Macon and he was killed off. Any of the pop stars out now would do. Macon and Marion's characters should be strong actors.
There were some very good elements, the locket, the library, telepathy, Bo Radlly and supporting characters. The grandma's character was not consistant at all.
It just took too long to get to the start.
Not annoying, I would listen to her in another book.
I couldn't finish it but, I am going to try this book again later.
If someone is looking for just a romance, no action or mystery they would like it.
I would research the premise first. I prefer a little action or murder mystery with my romance.
She made the female's emotion so believable and captured her plight.
Yes, it was a diversion while cleaning the house. I doubt I will listen again though.
It was very good among the murder mysteries genre. Most are predictable reasons for murder and the suspects obvious, not so here.
I can't think of another.
Her different voices are not different enough.
Yes. A 5 star book is one I want to listen to again. Later on I might listen to this again.
There were a few little things, but it was entertaining.
Yes, I would consider it.
Yes, it would be good for either. James McAvoy for sure. I think it would appeal to teens on up.
The subject matter. I must not have been paying attention to the snippet or premise. Very graphic sadism has no interest to me.
I doubt it.
He did the voices well and was convincingly creepy.
No, I hate to say it was boring but..... There was almost no action. The love story was not very good. To me it is essential to be vested and interested in the characters, I was not.
I'm having a hard time finding anything tempting.
He was okay but, lacked voice differentiation. He lacked sincere emotion.
Most reviews about this book were positive so maybe it is me. The only action was at the very end of the book.
I think there are people that might enjoy it. The premise was interesting, follow through was frustrating and lacking. Character development would have helped. That was missing, no connection with any of the characters. The mystery is summed up in the last few minutes and still you are confused or at least I was. I think with good editors or a collaboration, the story could be really good. Nora Roberts did one similar.
I am hoping for a great recommendation from Audible or other listeners.
Saltery, whisper, .....She is an acquired taste, at first I wasn't sure I liked her. Sometimes at first I had a hard time hearing or understanding some of her words.I chose this book because of her. Now I look for books she has narrated.
It did. I finished it. There are many books I don't. Xe Sands might be part of why I finished it. I also kept listening to see if relationships developed or to make sense of the mystery. I finished it hoping to be convinced, I wasn't.
Right now I wouldn't recommend it but , after awhile I might try listening again. It was not worth my credit, but on sale.....
I would like midway through the book for Mel to partner with Graham. Tease more and get together before the last three sentences of the book. When the summation happens in the end, it would be good to repeat to a couple people, the dad or Russian girl what bodies were there and why. Telling once right at the end when several intense things are happening with several people leaves you trying to say who what where. Some books that develop each character more and their connection with others helps in the summation.
Yes. This is the second of her books I have listened to. You can count on a light mystery. Easy listening.
She does very well with all the characters. I have looked for other books she has narrated.
Yes, it could have a follow up, only if it is not going to tease the relationship the whole book.
There is so much potential for a more developed book. Why not develope more lines with different characters. More interaction with the dad and his friend, more with the stepson he could bond with Graham. Some sarcastic funny humor between the characters and crazy self talk would step this up from a fluffy light to a developed book that I would listen to more than once.
I probably would not try another Robert Weinberg.
The narration was good.
It was predictable. I fast forward a few times. In the last five minutes the story was summed up, corny.
In the first chapter I was thinking get on with it. I may wait awhile and try it again, if the narration isn't annoying I like to give the author a second chance.
Yes, I would recommend it, the fast pace interesting characters, future potential, plot flow and most of all SARCASTIC Wit!!
The main character had sardonic wit, optimism, likable personality and you root for him even though he keeps getting beat up. There was plenty of action, several plot lines going at once and good characters to support the various stories.
There were little scenes with friends, girls, and ghosts.
Yes, the narrator was essential to the story. Only a few could have equaled his performance. He was excellent!
This book was one of the best of the last five I have bought. It is still Harry Dresden, light. When I say that I mean it is excellent but, Dresden books are so detailed and complex yet easy to follow. Dresden creates and describes all facets of his world, you can visualize all of it.
I can not wait for the next book in this series.
