I hate to be so hard on someone... but this narrator is horrible. The book is a light read, and amusing, a fun story. But this narrator makes everyone sound whinny, and ninety years old! I couldn't stand to listen! I bought the book and finished the story... to this day if I pick up that book and open it.... I hear that grating voice in my head!
The second book is also good, and a good narrator ... should have used her in this one.
Whine, and drawn out sentences, everyone sounded like a dying cow.
This is a good book, my favorite of the Vicki Bliss series. Barbara Rosenblat brings a lot to the story.
Yes... she is very good.
Yes... if you enjoyed being entertained these books are for you.
Alexia is a strong woman and very funny, although Lord Akeldama is over the top amusing. The addition Emily Gray gives to his vocal personality is amazing.
Meeting the Scottish realativies.
Yes... if I had the time I would have listened non stop.
Emily Gray gives a wonderful edge to the story and because of her ability to bring more to the story I would have to say the audio is best. Although I did buy the books and read each one with her voice in mind after listening.
The whole concept of the story is such fun!
No I have not.
What an adventure!
Give it a try... you won't regret it, and may love them as much as I did!
This was a great listen. I wish it were in print I would like to own the book. Good story and can't wait to hear the next one.
I have read all of Sue Grafton's books, and I will agree some are better than others. But this book is right up there with my favorite... G is for Gumshoe. I don't understand the negative reviews. I think it is great that we are finally learning more about Kinsey.
The story concept for this series is great... and I have stuck with it hoping the writer would grow up and drop the juvenile sarcasm... it gets very old and takes from the flow and quality of the book. The need to sound hip and in the moment is annoying too. Just write a good book... it's in there.. I'm just getting tired of weeding it out.
The reader has the voices ok.. but reads the book as if it is an instruction book for a toaster or directions to assemble a bookcase. That becomes annoying!
My first... and would like to continue in the series, but if I do I will buy the books, not endure the reader again.
Might as well have been reading a techinal manual.
The story line was good and developed characters.
Different reader would have made a world of difference.
I love Audible and listen to a lot of books. I can even get through some of the very long, very drawn out historical romances... but I thought this book would NEVER end! I wish I had listened to an abridged edition, or not a all. It went over and over the same issues again and again. By the time the story was worked out I didn't care anymore.
