I didn't find this book enjoyable at all - it was boring til the end. In fact if I had been reading the book I don't think I would have gone past the first chapter; all the talk about incontinence was too much, and a 70yr old mans' fondness for young women was distasteful.
All in all I did not enjoy the story...or the reading of it.
I have just downloaded the last unread book of John Saul! I love his books, although they can be so alike in many ways, they are also so different and you can never really guess how it's going to end. His chief characters don't always win!! I love every one of them.
This book was more a dang love story than anthing else. I might have enjoyed it more with out the 'obligatory' sex scenes.
I found these books a little boring....tho' i listened to the entire series anyway. The narrator, to me, seemed to put the wrong intonations on words and sentences, and each story seemed to be 'finished & explained" two or three times during the reading, before a 'twist' lead into another half a dozen chapters. All in all i found them readable.
Boohoo! i can't believe I have read ALL the Posadas County books! what am I to do! These books are good stories without the seemingly necessary sex scenes of other books, they are just good straight, interesting and enjoyable reads. If anyone knows of a series in this same catorgory please let me know!
I will miss Bill Gasner very much!
I listened to the series and loved them all. They have good story lines, and the narration is "sassy" - if a male narrator can be sassy, lol. I got a lotta smiles and head nods at the comments from Danny Boyle! Would recommend this series, but read 1-7 in order...much better!
I did enjoy the story despite being disappointed that it was all really just a love story - since I found it in the Thriller section, I had expected much more... I kept imagining a made for tv movie on 13th Street!
However all in all, it was interesting and the narration was was easy to listen to.
of course it was a great story...Lincoln Child wrote it!!! He is a brilliant auther and story teller!
Great story and well read! I couldn't stop....my ears got sore from the earphones!!! Well worth the read and made me a Tess Gerritsen fan!
I love Agent Pentagast!! Is he supernatural? there is an undertow of supernatural...but all seems to be explained away ALMOST completely, but never quite!!! All Douglas Preston/Lincoln Child/FBI Agent Pentagast are hard to put down!!!!!!
I love the 'in death' series! (Just wish I could somehow read them in order!) Funny and well written and most important of all, in my opinion, the naration is terrific. Well done Susan Erickson!
