The author just doesn't represent a small town the way it REALLY is. The police would NEVER have to identify themselves in a town of this size. EVERYONE would know them on sight and they would know everyone as well.
Yes, it was predictable and more importantly to me, it was unnecessarily gory in several places, but it is somewhat entertaining without any depth.
I differ, however, about the narrator. I really enjoyed her.
A plot that might seem CLOSE to reality.
Yes, he has written some really good stuff... especially the Painted House and I cannot say enough good about the book Bleachers. Both were excellent as are several others. The Innocent Man was incredible. I KNOW more excellent books are to come.
He was ok but very slow. I read a review that said he listened on x2 and that would have been better.
I expected an actual mystery, not a Harlequin ROMANCE. The premise was entirely preposterous.
Nothing from this author.
Character voices lacking and the fake Southern accents on SOME but not all the characters from VA.
It started out promising and then got ridiculous.
I read about this book awhile back and was immediately intrigued. I really like the subject matter, but the narrator is monotone and offputting. I think this is one I might have to read in hard copy.
Very long, rambling and somewhat preposterous mystery. The reader frequently talks too rapidly as well. Not worth the time.
I really enjoyed this book when the author stuck to the politics and life in pre-Castro Cuba. However, when she went off track with characters (Rachael K in particular) that really added nothing to the story, it got really boring.
Some books should be read and not listened to. I think this is one of them. The names all sound very similar to the untrained ear and the narrator is flat. I couldn't follow it at all and unfortunately probably will not finish it.
