The premise was all it had going. Not enough events and long extended ...... to get to the events. Less about all the ..... More events, action. emotion, relationships of all kind needed.
This book did not make me wait for more. I kept listening hoping for more through the whole book. The last chapter was the only one worth spending time. I love supernatural.
The supernatural background should have been short and sweet not bla bla.
I love Native American supernatural. It draws me. It was to drawn out and I was thinking get on with it. Too much detail......
Like I said the Native American, werewolf, shift changer all of that was intriguing, however the long drawn out....... made me want to quit multiple times. The whole story could have been more concise, not boring.
She was okay with what she had to work with. Her voice was somewhat monotone. There were sexual tension that could have been more intense and dire situations more given the feeling of OMG. The long drawn out parts about the sha.....gifts were boring, not her fault.
Could have been great with the premise! Shame on the editors!
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.
The characters were good. The murder mystery had good twists and turns. There was plenty of story and it wasn't overtaken by romance.
The bomb and who did it.
I wouldn't seek her out but I wouldn't avoid a book because she narrated. She did well differentiating the voices.
Yes. It had twists and turns.
No. I did get through it but it wasn't easy. The narrator ruined it. It sounded like a Saturday cartoon. He didn't differentiate voices very well and did not do women well. I was hoping for a Dresden type book.
I am thinking of steering away from paranormal towards basic mystery.
He just was not suited for the story.
Honestly there might have been potential in the story, it couldn't hold my attention so I don't know.
I am really mixed. The main two characters are very likable. It could have been great if while solving "his murder" there were a couple other mysteries going on at the same time. The more interaction between the two main characters could have had some great sardonic humor. Throw in the girl interest, she could have added some dark humor also. It is like a film noir but...... It is not too hard to get through but at the end..... There were only a few events that carry the whole story. It was along long story to solve one mystery. My least easy critic.
I might. His characters were great. He needed more story.
The narrator was very good. I don't think someone else would do better.
It is sex masquerading as a story.
The characters and scenes had potential. Some were funny. If you fast forwarded through the sex scenes there would probably be a chapter maybe more. In addition to cutting the sex scenes by less than half, getting rid of the raunchy language would make the scenes better. Jeaniene Frost's sex scenes are erotic but not raunchy she should use them as an example.
The narrator was good but, I couldn't tell the girls apart. That made the story very confusing. She really needed to differentiate voices of characters especially the southern ones. I think she will improve. I would try her again. There were three main couples and it was hard to tell the voices apart.
After a short while I had to fast forward through the long tedious sex scenes. You miss part of the story before and after. So the reaction is frustration. I finally gave up.
People that are looking for just porn not much story. There were some good characters and some development of them. The banter was the best part. However the whole thing is overshadowed by repeated rape and the girl grows to love the guy after. How else do you describe a girl repeatedly saying no, no, no, screaming cursing trying to get away and the guy doesn't stop?
The banter was funny, my favorite part. There were enough characters and you like and hate some. The storyline was very weak. It was mostly an excuse for porn.
I wouldn't use a credit.
It was a mystery but it couldn't keep my attention at all. Also, it came down to child abuse in the end, I don't like to read about. The plot was detailed enough and had twists.
Perhaps but I won't seek him out.
Perhaps but I won't seek him out. I like his voice but differentiating between characters is not up to par.
Characters are detailed, plot had good potential.
