What a disappointment....a true American story told by an author with a British accent. It is very distracting. So also is the litany of facts about life in 1950's America. More humorous stories, less facts, would be greatly appreciated.
Never been disappointed with Rosenfelt before so there is always a first time. This book is uneven with a rather unbelievable ending. The characters are not that interesting with the exception of the dialogue between the Police Chief and FBI Agent. The narrator just didn't seem to fit this book. This won't keep me from reading Rosenfelt. I am looking forward to the new Andy Carpenter book due out next month.
This is not only entertainment but educational and up-lifting. We have recommended to all our friends. Don't miss this book!
Each race was presented with all the excitement you could have experienced if you were actually there.
This is my first experience with Edward Hermann's narration and I would listen to anything he narrated from now on. Superb!
The story of Joe's childhood and how he overcame all obstacles and held no grudges.
The tenth Myron Bolitar and it is great! Steven Weber is an extraordinary narrator. The combination can't be beat. Be sure to get the unabridged version. Each subplot is fascinating on its own.
Ms Rosenblat does such an exceptionally fine job with the narration. She brings life to the characters and keeps you wanting more. The story is not action packed but it slowly unwinds the story of a mother and daughter that makes you mourn for what could have been. It is a good listen. I would recommend it if you like life stories.
I read this series and looked forward to listening to it. This narrator ruined the story. One voice and a lisp too! - I am glad to see the narrator was changed for the 2nd and 3rd book in the series so I am looking forward to hearing those. I recommend reading the paper copy and skipping this audio.
This book is so poorly written that it is painful. I have enjoyed Fielding in the past but this one misses on all counts. The heroine's lack of self esteem is tedious and at times overwhelming. The author's constant use of the heroine talking out loud to herself and mixing it with her dialogue with other makes it very hard to follow. Don't waste your money on this one.
I always enjoyed the sharp wit of Phillips' books. Unfortunately this has a decidedly mean streak to the writing. It is hard to warm up to the characters as a result. The narrator's sing-song reading is difficult to listen to for long periods. While no one can replace Anna Fields, there are many narrators that could have made this a better listening experience.
This book has a lot of characters. None are fully developed but they are introduced at just the right time to keep you interested and thinking about the twists and turns of the book. I would not rate this a great book but is entertaining to listen to on a drive to work. Worth a listen.
Great! Weber was the perfect narrator. I listened twice and enjoyed it just as much the second time.
If you are used to the Barbara Holloway series with narrator Anna Fields, it is a real disappointment to here his narrator's interpretation. She really makes Barbara seem a bit of an air head. I really can't even finish this book. I am going to move onto one of the novels narrated by Fields.
