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.
Not really. This book just seemed to drag on and it really wasn't very interesting. I've actually fast forwarded through a lot of it.
No, I just think this one was very disappointing.
Ray Porter IS awesome. The voices he does are spot on from book to book. You always know the character without him having to point out who it is.
Joe Ledger books should continue.
The male version was good, the female reading this was literally UNLISTENABLE!!! OMG, It was PAINFUL listening to her read this book and if I hadn't been on the road at the time, I would have just stopped listening and bought the book. The story was good, but the end was sort of rushed.
Wu and Cram were characters that you could actually picture in your mind, even if you've never met anyone in real life like them. All the other characters seemed rushed, and there were quite a few times in the book that I had to fast forward because Grace's character was doing things that didn't work with the character the writer wanted us to think she was.
PICK A DIFFERENT FEMALE TO READ IT!!! And not spend so much time on irrelevant information and then rushing the end of the book.
hmmmmnm, Nope, just not "on the edge or your seat" interesting plotline enough to be a movie.
Harlan is such a great writer....please "vet" the actors reading the books a little more before you let them just take on the books. Seriously, they can MAKE or BREAK your book. In this case, had I another book on my player to choose from, I would have move to it immediately because the female reader was just AWFUL!!!!!
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.
disappointment and boredom
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!!
His changing of the character's voices are so natural, and he delivers each character's personalities so perfectly.
I most definitely recommend this to anyone. It is LONG, but get the unabridged version so you get ALL the finite details.!!
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!
yes, I will continue to listen to her books
Use Scott Brick for the books where there are lots of WOMEN's voices...he is great!
