It's actually my second but everyone felt new. There were too many characters to keep up with. I had to repeat some parts of the story to remember why they were there. Not sure if I know who actually did it.....in this whodunit ,I might have to revisit Heat Islands again. On to the next one in the series.
I started finding the story difficult to follow because of time. I couldn't tell if days or months had past from segment or chapter. Dates are not mentioned as a frame of reference. But the story unfolds and time didn't matter so much
The narrator was fine. She kept the story moving along. I thought from the description that the story would have more action, be more exciting. Maybe I'll give it a second listen just in case I missed something.
I knew this was about our American past. But I didn't expect this book to Reflect on how Native American life influenced, directly or indirectly, how our lives are lived today. Interestingly, the book is not limited to North American natives, but includes Mexican, Central American and South American natives. A very informative history.
I love when it's an autobiography read by the author. It makes their story relatable. I enjoyed it.
I grew up a child of the electric company and my mother introduced me to Ms Moreno's films. I am a fan.
But I must say that while listening was hard, the story was quite good. A bit of character overkill, more difficult to keep characters in order when listening to a book. Mr Coben is an excellent writer which is why I kept listening in spite of Ms Dawes narration. I you have the time, this one would be better read than listened to. For me, the epilogue didn't help to bring closure to the story.
Brings back memories as my kids are older now. One still refuses to eat and some of these frustrations I have uttered verbatim. "How are you still growing? How are you not dead?" Omg!
I haven't been able to relate to Alex Cross in the last few books. This story reminded me of why I fell in love with the series.
Michael Boatman is no Peter J Fernandez (whose Nanamamma is classic and so fun to listen to) but he's growing on me.
This is well written and the best Michael Bennett, so far. Is this the end??? I don't know. Reach your own conclusion.
I kind of like the idea that Mary Catherine crushes on Michael without the relationship developing into anything. She cannot replace 'Mave'. I don't think he sees her as more than the- closest-to-Mave-as-he-can-get-for-the-children.
That Michael is considering his feelings for Mary Catherine and the possibility of becoming more serious is not good...not good for Mary Catherine.
I appreciate that Michael doesn't try to save the world on his own, but that he works with those around him to solve a tough situation. ( I'm trying not to give anything away, here) However, anything this hero does eventually comes back to threaten his happiness.
The bad guys just don't like being beaten by Detective Bennett.
I am a big Reacher fan. The thought that someone would try to get into his head is frankly hilarious. I was not familiar with "Cotton Malone" or "John Rain" characters. This snippet is a good introduction to those characters for me. 'Dr. Morgan Snow" does her job well.
The stories are narrated by the voices you are used to which gives the illusion they have really encountered Dr. Snow and her 'couch'.
Like the headline leads...'cute'...and funny.
