I was worried I would start getting bored with the books as I go through this series one by one, but Robb does not disappoint! While I have gotten used to the style (always knowing the main suspect is not the killer), this one surprised me with the murderer. Didn't see it coming.
I enjoyed the way the characters interacted with each other, and listening to Eve try to shop for Christmas was hilarious. It was also amusing to hear Peabody and McNab's bickering.
Overall, 5 stars!!
I loved how normal (well, for apocalyptic fiction) the world was. The protagonist did the things that seemed normal, and it didn't always work out, which is how the real world works.
Very fun to listen to, and made me want to get the next in the series.
In the end, you can't always save everyone.
This is another great addition to the series. As a mom, the end really hit me. I won't say more, so I don't spoil it, but this one tugs at the heart strings.
From a mystery standpoint, I figured it out about 3/4 the way through. I enjoyed listening to the whole thing, and as usual the narrator is 5 stars!
Another great installment in the series! I especially love the interaction with the side characters, and Eve's reaction to having a kid! Being a mother myself, the way she treats the young girl is both horrifying and hilarious and so in-character for Eve.
Really shows that Eve and Roarke aren't quite ready to have kids of their own yet.
At this point, if youre going through the series, you're falling into the rote process. This one was still interesting, especially with the visions aspect of it: and I honestly, did not see the ending coming. Kind of whacked me, and I was like, what? Had to rewind and listen again to get it all.
Another good one in the series!
This will be the first one I have not given a full five stars.
The Nora Roberts Story: Was dull, and uninteresting. I found myself spacing out a lot. The man was alright, I suppose, and the woman was just...typcial. And whiny, to me. The best character was Big Jack himself, and he only had a few scenes. The villain was just too... obviously villainous! Very little depth. A kind of, thisis what you see, this is what you get.
Now, the J.D. Robb story: was awesome, as usual.
Bottom Line: If you don't care about the back story (and don't really need it), I would just buy Big Jack. If, however, you are using a credit, just get them both and try it out, but don't get your hopes up much.
I have to say, the most interesting books are the ones were Roarke and Eve have difficulties.
As it is, I don't agree with Eve's opinion here, more on Roarke's side, but I can see why she felt the way she did, and it is in character. That Roarke was willing to give in really show how much he loves her and values her opinion.
The perfect man. :D
I was kept guessing on this one, never sure exactly who it was, which was a nice change from several previous ones.
This book was one of my favorites in the series.
Roarke finally learns the entire back story with his mother and father, and it was written so beautifully that you wanted to reach into the book and give him a hug. I loved how Eve reacted as well, it was all so natural.
You can tell that Eve and Roarke are both growing in their marriage.
As for the murder, I thought the perpetrator came out of nowhere, though it was interesting to see a killer who really, truly thought he was doing something okay. He wasn't mean about it, just crazy. The action at the end really had me holding my breath, but of course everything turns out alright.
P.S. :Love the narrator! Susan IS the voice of Eve to me.
I loved the side plot with Roarke even more than the main murder, which is becoming more and more of a thing as the series progresses. The murders? Interesting. The side characters? Engrossing.
This one wasnt all about the case, but had some great moments with side characters. I loved that the boy came back, and we get to see him growing up.
the ending surprised me, but was believable and had good basis.
Another good one!
