Wichita, KS, United States
The narrators voice somehow didn't fit the story -- a bit too light/friendly -- something. And I really didn't like his portrayals of female voices. His voice continuously made me think of "The Grinch that stole Christmas" video or a Dr. Suess story, so I spent a few hours just trying to get with the story.
The story itself was pretty good, the writing was a bit crappy -- she needed to hang around with REAL cops or do more research to learn how to talk tough. Most of the police interaction wasn't even close to realistic but the story was amusing. Her leaping back & forward was ackwardly put, it wasn't clear exactly where you went for a paragraph or two. Expecially on the Taylor parts.
The narrators needed to be more balanced. Renee delivered her usual great performance - Paul was too lackluster and tended to make his portion drag.
The overall story is very good as usual for this series, however, the books seem to be shorter and shorter as if to prolong it. After listening to this one, I just bought the paper books 2nd hand. I've read the books of Eve, Bonnie, etc. and the last three could have been combined to make a fantastic book.
I don't really have a favorite character, their individual stories are usually fast paced and interesting. I'd just like to have more in each book.
Just a thought . . .
For 2-1/2 hours I listened to discriptions of furniture, scenery, etc. that droned on and on.
Most disappointing was that after 2-1/2 hours I didn't know WHERE the story was going, on if it WAS going anywhere.
His performance was alright, but the combination of him and NO story was too much.
Utter disappointment - I was glad I didn't pay full price for this book. After the first hour I kept telling myself, if I just listened a little longer it would get better. After 2-1/2 hours it didn't get better. Boooooo
