Kindsy Millhone has become a comfortable, old friend. I can think of no reader other than Judy Kaye to portray her. Never boring. The sound person may have been asleep at the switch, but it wasn't bad. Certainly wasn't Judy Kaye's fault. Her reading, as always, was flawless. I loved the book.
While I listened to the entire book and found it entertaining, it was a straight-up old-fashioned detective story. No twists, surprises. And it was predictable.
A humorious selection is unusual for me--but I had so much fun with this book. The cliche's, the fun they had messing with the bad buy, the people who "grew" in the book were actually touching. Sure didn't bore me--I just loved every moment of it. Wonderful, fun writing, fastastic narration. I'd been feeling a little low, and I gotta say this sure helped me thru. I'll be watching for more books by this author, esp. when read by Stephen Hoye.
This books sounds as though it were a home recording with background sounds and a totally amature reader. I'm amazed at the folks who enjoyed his reading. Slow book opening, slurred reading, nobody with whom to identify--I didn't make it through the first chapter. And, usually, I LOVE all the books.
