The doctor is good, and his information is very interesting. He could be a little more animated in his narration, but it is science. The other guy is ridiculous and condenscending. He knows nothing about women. Should have gotten somebody a woman could relate to if you wanted color commentary. I kept forwarding past him to the docs parts. He added absolutely zero - nothing to the book.
Wow hard to get through, but in the end I think it is worth it. Narration was great and it was beautifully written. One of the first times I think an abridged version might have been better though. The scenes dragged on and on and on. While it was beautiful, I found myself tuning out. Also just too much despair and depressing throughout (just my personal preference). It was hard for me to sit through the darkness surrounding most of the story.
I still give it a good rating because I think it was well done, and the ending was not predictable.
Great job on all fronts. Story keeps you guessing, the characters are so much fun, and the narration was excellent as always. Love that "Bleeping Flowers"
But it feels like it is in search of a real story. Rice is an absolute master at describing The amazing worlds and surroundings of her creatures. That remains true here.
I am a huge Rice fan. I've read virtually everything and wait for each new book to come out. For the first time, I felt the proportion of background description to the actual story felt a off-balance. The story moves from one extensively descriptive scene to the other. The story line itself seems much less important. It almost feels like this book is just a set up for another in the series.
I was hoping for resolution to at least one or two of the situations set up in the story. But I did not get ithat by the end. It just stopped abruptly with multiple threads unresolved. I'm such a big fan that I will wait for the next installment to get the answers.
I really liked this book. I immediately wanted more. Would make a great series. The main characters are all interesting. They were developed well, but you could see it go so much further.
Excellent narration as well.
Good story, but not great. Contrived.
Female voices are really awful in the performance. Wow annoying and totally unbelievable. It was a distraction. I will just chalk it up since Ferrone's performances are usually very good.
The sex angle took over too much in this one, and it wasn't nearly as fun as a result. I will try the third one to see if it goes back to being more entertaining. Great narrator.
Joe's character and dialogue were too over the top. Same with the kings plot. Seems like the series jumped the shark with this one. Performance was very good as always.
I liked it, but was a little tired of this melancholy tortured Pendergast. I am glad that the Helen storyline is now resolved. I liked the Pendergast character from the books prior to these last few.
I liked the story, and narration was excellent as always. No complaints other then I miss the main characters prior personality traits. I think the Tristran character will be a great addition in future stories.
Not as good as some of his earlier ones. More of a murder mystery. Took a while to get into it, but it was good.
