    Would you try another book from Catherine Coulter and/or Robert Lawrence?

    I've only read 2 of her books and found that the MAZE was great, but this one was painful to get through. The narrater's voice was good as long as he wasn't trying to do the voice of a woman. When he did the women's voices it was BEYOND terrible which made this book seem like it took forever to get through. As for the story, I didn't find it as interesting as the previous book I read. I will try a few more and see how it goes. Love the Savich/Sherlock team though!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Catherine Coulter again?

    yes, I will continue to listen to her books


    How could the performance have been better?

    Use Scott Brick for the books where there are lots of WOMEN's voices...he is great!

    Story

    When the men find him, the boy’s legs look like they were run through a wood-chipper. He’s bleeding heavily and near death, but he still has strength to tell them of the monster that attacked him: a dark, massive creature that emerged from the bottom of the lake. The child dies before he can say more. Sheriff Billy Wintone has seen too much superstition, drunkenness, and rage in this small Ozarks town to believe the delirious boy’s tale of a monster lurking under the lake’s dark waters. Like it or not, however, Wintone must scour the woods for the man or beast who killed the child before the start of fishing season.

    What disappointed you about Bonegrinder?

    Its monotony of the story was excruciating. I think this story had potential to be good, but just never got there. I found myself being GLAD that it wasn't longer and only finished the book so I'd know what bonegrinder was. Definitely NOT the best work John Lutz has done, not even close.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment and boredom

    Something very strange -- and sinister -- is going on in the Russian woods at Borodino. In a place called Mrs. Ivanova's Charm School, young KGB agents are being taught by American POW's how to be model citizens of the USA. The Soviet goal -- to infiltrate the United States undetected. When an unsuspecting American tourist stumbles upon this secret, he sets in motion a CIA investigation that will reveal horrifying police state savagery and superpower treachery.

    Char says: "Incredibly Good"

    Story
    Would you listen to The Charm School again? Why?

    Yes, and I have. The story was written so well and performed by Scott Brick so well, that I couldn't stop listening. I got really caught up in the storyline and I actually felt like I was there, in Russia, could picture the scenes as they unfolded!! It was fiction, but the whole time you were listening to it, you were thinking, this could be 100% true. LOVE LOVE LOVED it!!


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    His changing of the character's voices are so natural, and he delivers each character's personalities so perfectly.


    Any additional comments?

    I most definitely recommend this to anyone. It is LONG, but get the unabridged version so you get ALL the finite details.!!

  • 10th Anniversary: The Women's Murder Club

    Story
    (710)

    Detective Lindsay Boxer's long-awaited wedding celebration becomes a distant memory when she is called to investigate a horrendous crime: a badly injured teenage girl is left for dead, and her newborn baby is nowhere to be found. Lindsay discovers that not only is there no trace of the criminals - but that the victim may be keeping secrets as well.

    cstardancer says: "Not as good as usual"
    "Not Completely Dazzled by this one"
    Overall

    I have enjoyed most of James Patterson's Murder Club books. This one didn't seem to have the edge his others had and unfortunately, the narration made it even harder to listen too. Carolyn McCormick seemed to make all the women seem whiney and week instead of strong and forces to be reckened with. It's a shame because I've been looking forward to this book.
