Good plot but the reader is terrible. He sounds like David Sedaris, which gives a whole new interpretation to the Spenser crew. At first I thought it was a parody. It's amusing, then tiresome, and ultimately unfortunate, as this might be one of the more interesting books of the series. Yes, bring back Joe Mantegna, bring back anyone but this guy. I will say that his interpretation of Susan is better than others though.
A decent narrator that doesn't engage in cheesy dramatics (and terrible, unneeded accents). I could not finish the book as the awful reading was too distracting. It actually made me cringe, partly because it was bad and partly out of embarrassment for the narrator. She reads the book like a high school girl engaging in empty gossip.
No, but I will check that this narrator is not the reader for anything else I buy. I wish I had listened to a sample beforehand.
Whoever was the narrator for Roach's previous book, Stiff.
I don't know, because I couldn't get through the book due to the terrible narrator.
I wish I had checked who the narrator was and listened to a sample before I purchased the book. I may check the book out of the library in print to finish it.
great listening fun
The introduction of a new character in Chief Long
Timing, depth and additional humor. He is definitely the voice of Henry.
No, my husband and I enjoyed savoring it over a series of excursions
Author Craig Johnson has developed a memorable series with Sheriff Longmire, but all the previous books I have listened to have had some confusing plot sequences and tended to linger on overdone self-reflection or description to the point of being repetitive. The books had a lot of loose ends that one overlooked because of the strength of the character development and the engaging and smart writing style. In this book, Johnson pulls it all together in the right balance of plot, character, and humor. It is his best one yet and just plain good fun to listen to. George Guidall is the perfect reader for it as well.
I think I will have to read this book in print. The reader was so bad and overly cute in his presentation that it ruined the book for me. I couldn't finish it, as the reader was so damn annoying. It makes Dr. Feynman sound like a total idiot.
It's a fun read but she runs out of steam at the end. It's heavy on dead bodies and relationships, and a little short on plot development.
This might have been good, but the reader was so bad, both in terms of timing and voices, that I couldn't finish the book. Also, it could have used some serious editing -- the whole thing rambles in a rather self-indulgent, "ain't I so clever in my hippie talk" way.
