I have just finished listening to all the Stone Barrington books on audible. Most of them are very entertaining and have good plots. This one is disjointed especially at the end and has a sudden and disappointing end. Skip this one. Also Stone Barrington is not even in this book although Holly and Lance have peripheral parts. Come on Stuart...you can do much better!
I rank this 4 out of 5. I intend to read the whole series (no pun intended). This was a good story although it was hard to follow because to the American ear (at least to mine), the last names all sounded the same. I found I had to write them down and refer to a spreadsheet until I understood who was who.
Although I really like these psychic eye stories, the narrator has an annoying prnounciation problem. She frequestly ends past tense verbs with a t instead of a d pronoucing words like want-ed as want-it and boot-ed as boot-it.
She also leaves the g off of participles pronoucing making as makin .
These errors occur in groups making me assume that it may happen when she gets tired.
I think professional narrators should not make this kind of mistake.
I am three hours into this and am finding it pretty boring...so far it is a lot of background and the narrator is not interesting...I miss the usual narrators A LOT...
The least interesting - the narrator
I have listened to every one and I am really disappointed in this one so far
sorry to be so negarive - I love Harry Bosch
I always look forward to new Stuart Woods books, particularly Stone Barrington books but lately they have not been as good. This story is not interesting. There are mutiple subplots that do not get woven together. The story is very predictable. Everything works perfectly for the main characters and gets done on a time scale that is impossible. There is no depth of feeling shown by any character and overall it is not very interesting to listen to. Sonte Barrington was almost a side character in the story and had little to add or perform. It's sad when one of your favorite authors and characters begins to wander off track.
I bought this book because the description sounded like a good medical review of what you could do to reverser type 2 diabetes....then in the very first 5 minutes, the author started referring to Christian values and quoting the bible...I guess I will still listen to the rest but I feel mislead...I thought this was schience NOT religion. I would not have bought a book about religion...
I did not think it was possible to make Steve McQueen boring but in spite of more than adequate writing, the author/narrator does not have an intereting voice. He drones on and you fall asleep fast...I have tried four times to get interested since I love biographies but I can't listen to this one...sorry.
This Eve Dallas story is not one of JDs best. It has nothing new in it and does not hold the readers interest. It seems rushed and the story has little depth, no location changes, no interesting characters and hardly any inclusion of York. It is not a mystery or an adventure. The author was not creative at all and the story was very short and flat. Sorry.
Based on my scant knowledge of Rob Lowe, I expected this book to be a recital of a risque life with few serious notes. Instead I found a wonderfully written, stong, inciteful story of one actors personal evolution. This is the first book I have read about Hollywood that evoked real emotion and understnading in me. It is well paced, interesting, very real and very well read. Thank You...Write MORE
I enjoyed this story but found the narrator tried too hard and read too fast giveing the listener the feeling of being pushed to listen. Also the editor of Format 4 cut words off when putting the chapters together (about 10 times in the first 48 minutes)..this is extremely annoying! Not a progessional production.
I have really enjoyed (rated 4 and 5) all the Sookie books until this one...this book could have been an epilogue to the last one....there is a very thin plot line, no attention to settings, not much happening and no new concepts or surprises...I was very disappointed...a firend said to me after reading the hardback - It was as if the author had hired some one else to write the book....
