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!
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
I have either read or listened to every book in the series and this one is great. This one focuses on the hunt and the storyline is fast paced and the writing is tight. I love the continued character development and relationship between Roarke and Dallas. Susan Ericksen is a master when it comes to bringing the players to life, and I can't imagine anyone else reading this series. I stayed up till 3am to finish this one and didn't want it to end.
As always Patton's narration is spot on and perfect. The characters are flawed, but leave a lasting impression. Burke's laid back style, lush descriptions and insight into the motives of his characters makes him the best at this genre. I've listened to the entire series and this was my favorite. PLEASE give us just one more.
