Fast paced and hard to put down. Bobby Cole is a great story teller and I will be looking for more. The characters are developed quickly and without unnecessary information and the situations are believable. The narration is spot on and I totally enjoyed this listen. One of the best so for!
I know that C Coulter has a loyal following. I've even enjoyed a book or two, but... NO.. just no. This was so poorly written and so lame. Written in the voice of "Oh John... Oh, Martha" sappy romance dime novels, but pretending to be a mystery. Characters are totally unbelievable. NO one would behave that way. Dialog was so inane and the whole plot was ridiculous, a few times I wanted to bang my head on my ipod. I know you ask, then WHY did I continue to listen? I kept hoping (call me the optimist) that at some point it would take a turn and make sense or get better, or come to a conclusion that would have justified the time already invested in listening... but NO. I'm not a literature snob. In fact, I'm rather easy to entertain. I enjoy so many genres and appreciate many different writing styes. I rarely give negative reviews, fully realizing that what we enjoy is highly subjective. But, please save your money. This book is so, so very bad. I got it on sale and if not for that, I would be calling to get my money back.
The genre? What genre was this exactly? It wasn't a romance novel, and sure as heck wasn't a mystery. It had no genre... maybe a comic strip
Sandra was fine. She isn't responsible for bad material. Her voicing and inflections were appropriate and she did her job.
all of the above.
Run... save your money. Don't waste your time.Not to Coulter. Please show more respect for your readers. We deserve better from you.
Interesting characters, unique plot line and dark humor. The narration was just perfect. More than once I stopped what I was doing and chuckled out loud. I will be getting every book in this series.
Odd Thomas would be a comparison.
No, but I will be looking for them. great narration
I totally enjoy the laid back style and character interpretation that Scott Brick delivers. I don't understand the negative comments. Scott totally becomes the characters and this one had me hooked from the beginning
There were a couple of good ones, but no spoilers, so I'll keep them to myself.
Koryta is my new favorite author. I love this genre and he delivers.
Absolutely. If you like police/crime thrillers this one will be for you
The "reveal" at the end. I did absolutely did NOT see it coming
No, but I will seek him out in the future. Wonderful narrator and character representation was spot on.
Jo Nesbo is a master at developing tension and developing interesting characters. More than once I found myself actually holding my breath. This is a great listen Five stars all around
Perfect character development. Great plot twists. My favorite genre of novel and this is a very enjoyable listen. I can't say enough about the narrator. Great voices and accents and coudn't stop listening. If you enjoy police procedurals and thrillers, this one is for you.
I have read all of the Ledger books. In fact I devoured them one after another. Great storytelling. A combination of a bit of fact, a bit of fantasy and a bit of science fiction. Jon Maberry is my new favorite. As for narration, Ray Porter is the very best I've ever heard. He IS Joe Ledger in my book. I've read all six of these and I'm hungry for more.
I wanted to like it as I have enjoyed the first couple of "odd thomas" adventures. In previous books, I liked the quirky personality and interesting adventures seen from his perspective. This one totally misses the mark. It is so off the scale with silliness that I had to fast forward through some parts just to get to the end and put me out of my misery. This was a waste of a credit that I regret having used. The narration itself is fine, but the storyline is ridiculous and the telling tedious.
The combination of Adrian McKinty and Gerard Doyle is sheer perfection. McKinty weaves deep characters and complex plots. His wry sense of humor and and insight into our humanity (or lack thereof) make the characters real. I have now either read or listened to all of his books and still want more. Not enough great things can be said about the narration. This trilogy came to a satisfying conclusion. I will be watching for more from the wonderful author.
I am a Dean Koontz fan so I was expecting another great tale dancing on the edge of reality. Part time travel, part love story, part mystery, part science fiction and 100% entertaining. I was riveted from the beginning and just had to see what would happen in the next turn of events. Koontz has a way of quickly developing quirky characters without overdoing it and situations that, however unbelievable, we WANT to believe. Storytelling at it's best and I waned the story to go on and on. There are so many wonderful things about this well told fantasy, but I don't want to be a spoiler. If you like mysteries and appreciate letting your imagination wander, you will absolutely love this. I do believe this has been my favorite listen for a very long time. I can't imagine anyone not liking this one
This series is beyond wonderful for detective/mystery lovers. The writing here is crisp and fast paced and the character development is just enough to get the point across. McGinty is a true word master and wastes nothing. The subtle humor is sheer genius at times and the stories intricately woven against a background of real events and real people. The literary references are perfect. What can I say? I am hooked. I want more. I also have to mention the masterful narration by Mr. Doyle. PLEASE get the third of this series on audiobooks as fast as you can!
