Have listened to this over the last 3 days and loved it! Never a dull moment and definitely held my interest throughout. A few of the reviews had made me a little worried that it wouldn't be a good book but it was! Peter Giles is perfect as the narrator. Excellent and just what I want from Audible.
I tested out this book since it's part of a series and it had gotten good reviews by and large. Well, I'm a major fan now! Have already purchased the next and have others in my wish list. The characters were so marvelously developed - such a range of different types. Can't wait to start the next one in the series this coming week!
The only thing I'm worried about is that there's a different narrator. So sorry that Erik Davies didn't continue. I thought he was ideal for this role. I'll be hopeful, however.
I would love to know the story behind Brian Freeman deciding to make this a novella instead of weaving it into another full novel. Was it something he wrote and it didn't fit in another novel or he just created this as a separate story? Whatever it was, it was EXCELLENT! And it will barely tide me over until his next book is out! I hope Joe Barrett always narrates his books. I can't imagine anyone else in the "role."
I have been telling people about this book ever since I started listening - and have told everyone to LISTEN rather than read it. This narrator was brilliant and brought Dan Smith's amazing story up to another level. I didn't want to miss a sentence in this book and if I thought I had, I went back. Tragic and yet hopeful. Painful and yet inspiring. One of the best books EVER from Audible.
Since Devil in the White City is what I'm measuring his books against, that is a TOUGH act to follow. However, I learned a great deal from this book and enjoyed it and am looking tonight for another one of Erik Larson's books. I'm convinced that I like him and the way he creates a story!
Completely different from Brothers & Bones, his first book I'd read (listened to) and this one was fabulous also! Different narrators added to it rather than distracting from the story as can happen in some audio books. I have already purchased the third book that I know of that Hankins has written and will be listening soon!
This was a great book and on so many levels, I loved it. I listened to the whole thing within 2 1/2 days - while driving, doing work around the house, or standing around waiting for something to get started.
I loved all the main characters (and was rooting for all of them in their various endeavors) and the depictions of them by the narrator. She was outstanding and helped this good book be even better.
Thank goodness! This Agent Pendergast book is getting closer to being back on track (compared especially to the last one!) A few parts veered off and were less-than-compelling, but overall, I am glad I listened to this one!
Really, this was a 4.5 overall - but I couldn't rate it as that so I gave it a 5. And I would read book 1-13 in this series (listen to it) but couldn't find them. It seems that this is Book 14 of Scottoline's books but I couldn't see that they are all Rosato and Associates books, but maybe that's my poor searching skills. Excellent book. Great characters, Super narration. Complete winner. Want more.
Excellent. I haven't looked yet to see if this author has other books, but if he does, I'm buying them! I've already recommended this to other friends who are readers/listeners. And John Rubinstein is incredible. He did an outstanding job with this book.
