    Powerful entertainment from the crime fiction superstar who combines riveting authenticity with witty, elegant prose. Best selling author Kathy Reichs "keeps the twists coming, and by the novel's climax, she has skillfully interwoven her many subplots and red herrings into a satisfying puddle of sex, sleaze, greed and gore," says Publishers Weekly.

    Don says: "Good story"
    "Excellent book."
    Overall

    I am disappointed only that the first few books in the series are not available in audio form.
    The book is well written. I enjoyed the internal monolog that adds depth to tempi.
    The reader is not perfect but IMO is not actually bad. I did not have problems following transitions between characters etc.

  • At All Costs: Honor Harrington, Book 11

    What price victory? The war with the Republic of Haven has resumed . . . disastrously for the Star Kingdom of Manticore. Admiral Lady Dame Honor Harrington, Steadholder and Duchess Harrington, the single victorious Allied commander of the opening phase of the new war, has been recalled from the Sidemore System to command Eighth Fleet. Everyone knows Eighth Fleet is the Alliance's primary offensive command, which makes it the natural assignment for the woman the media calls "the Salamander."

    Sijia Huang says: "To Avid Harrington Readers..."
    "A step back for the series."

    Story

    The story is mostly ok but there is about 20min of strait up religious ceremony in the middle that serves no purpose except extending the book.
    Also I think too much time was spent trying to convey specific signs the tree cats were making rather than something like 'made the two handed sign for x'
    These factors make the book seem boated.

    After a joyous honeymoon in Paris, Dexter is feeling pretty normal. But when a corpse is found displayed on a Miami beach, Dexter realizes another killer is on the loose.

    Russell says: "Is there a such thing as 'too graphic'?"
    "Dexter Jumps the Shark"
    Overall

    Many parts of this book are wonderful. There are some great scenes. Unfortunately, the author destroyed the entire concept of Dexter as an exploration of humanity by introducing supernatural forces.

    If I could give this book a negative score I would.

    To save the lives of her friends, Rachel did the unthinkable: she willingly trafficked in forbidden demon magic. And now her sins are coming home to haunt her. As Rachel searches for the truth behind a terrifying murder, an even greater menace threatens, for the demon Algaliarept will stop at nothing to claim her, and the discovery of a shocking family secret throws Rachel's entire life into question.

    Carol says: "Horrible Narration Take 2"
    "Unlistenable"
    Overall

    I thought I could deal with the change in narators but it is worse than expected. I would give this zero stars and return it if I could. 5 min in I had to stop. I will have to buy the paperback.

    Why oh why switch narrators. I would have paid double for the same voice again.

  • The Bad Beginning, A Multi-Voice Recording: A Series of Unfortunate Events #1

    Like a car alarm, bagpipe music, or a doorbell ringing in the middle of the night, hearing this all-new audio edition of The Bad Beginning will only upset you. This unique multi-voice recording brings the first book in Lemony Snicket's alarming A Series of Unfortunate Events to such terrible life that no one should really have to experience it.

    Diana - Audible says: "Books Will Save You"
    "Fun book withy Beautiful multivoice recording"
    Overall

    This was a simple fun book with a beautiful performance. The multiple readers make single reader books pale in comparison.
    For those who have trouble believing the author he is not kidding that there is no happy ending. Much the same as a Harry Potter book has no happy ending. Events within the book are wrapped up but evil still lurks and is not ultimately defeated. However, I would not classify the ending as a downer.

    Dr. Temperance Brennan looks forward to her first vacation in years. She's almost out the door when the bones start appearing. Most puzzling of all are the bones discovered at a remote farm outside Charlotte. The remains seem to be of animal origin, but Tempe is shocked when she gets them to her lab. Why are the X rays and DNA so perplexing? Who is trying to keep Tempe from the answers? Someone is following her, and must be stopped before it's too late.

    Sara says: "Not as good"
    "Another great Brennan book"
    Overall

    I have been enjoying the Brennan series and this is exactly what you would expect if you have listened to any of the others.
    For new listeners to the series, the forensics are accurate but are not overblown, they take a second seat to plot and character. The books are classic detective tales with a fully fleshed out female lead. Internal dialog adds depth to the character.
    All in all very much worth listening to.

    Keller possesses all the qualities of a professional killer. He's cool, confident, reclusive, icy, and ruthlessly efficient. But this seasoned hit man is also prone to self-doubt as he finds himself caught in the clutches of a mid-life crisis.

    Barbara A. Russell says: "Surprisingly Terrific"
    "Didn't even warrant finishing."
    Overall

    I have only put down a couple of books in my life before finishing. This was one of them. I gave it a good shot, kept listening to see if it would improve and it just didn't. I was hoping for some interesting or inventive kills, a plot, something to warrant further listening. But it just wasn't there. Honestly one of the worst books I have every tried. I would recommend skipping this book.
