It could be my age but I connected with the description of the characters in particular Charles Paris and his relationship with his daughter!
Great story line with delightful characters.
HIS VOICE!! its how he tells the story - he knows his characters so well and I couldn't imagine anyone else being the voice of Charles Paris.
The book and the characters are fun and truly delightful. Also the characters are much older than the usual age of central characters.
It was such a delightful mystery and very light hearted and simply enjoyable.
She made the character come to life that occasionally made me laugh at the antics.
An enjoyable and simple story that will delight.
I would add the print version to my collection as I just LOVED the audio book.
Both the Scott and his best girl Maggie are fantastic characters. Scott and Maggie are struggling in their own unique ways.
Maggies recollection of her time with her handler Scott at the timber yard. Her thoughts and his reassuring touch is just lovely.
This mystery is exciting, the characters amazing and it really is a page turner!
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the ongoing story of Ali Reynolds and her wonderful aide Leland Brooks. The story line was exciting as was the second underlying story relating to Leland.
Loved the narrator's performance - though I am not sure if it was my aging ipod but the cut and joining of narration is at times annoying.
If you love Jance you'll love this next Ali Reynolds Mystery. Thanks J. A. Jance.
I loved it, once again Eve Dallas speaks for the dead....all 12 of them in fact. J D Robb enables us to join Eve as she unearths and puts together the clues in her indomitable way. It's clever and the killer wasn't who I really expected (I had such high hopes for the matron) however if you enjoy J D Robb you'll love the next in the "In Death" series.
Mr Mira giving Eve the "Stupid hat and the red gloves".
Nothing Susan Erickson is Eve - Don't ever change her !
It was like spending a wonderful time with a friend finding out her exploits.
No not necessarily but still enjoyable.
The main character is adorable, she is not only feisty but intelligent and above all fun.
I enjoyed the story line and the characters were endearing.
I had a sharp intake of breath when I realized an important fact as the story unfolded...that makes for a good story!
I actually enjoyed the Scottish accent...Very Taggart!!
As Peter James continues the story of Roy Grace I am loving the intriguing past snippets that he loves to dangle in front of the reader. His missing first wife...her psychiatrist sessions leave you constantly dangling. His new fiancé and their beautiful baby Noah and their fates in this story were nail biting. The main police story is fascinating and brilliantly written allowing me to enjoy the plot till the very end.
Though this book didn't have the blood and gore of many mystery fiction available today I found this book fascinating and compelling to listen to, it was well written, beautifully described so that many of the images related to by the author were very vivid in my mind's eye. I have to say that I couldn't put it down, as my wardrobe, my bedroom drawers are now perfectly tidy and sorted because I wanted to know "who dunnit". I hope to hear from this author again. May Cormoran Strike like lightening again!
Cormoran himself, his big bulky and affable (in his own way) nature became very endearing as the story unfolded.
Cormoran and his delightful secretary - just so I too could pretend to take notes and hang on their every word.
I love the Phyrne Fisher mysteries, though very Australian they are good fun and entertaining stories. Phyrne is such a lady of character, charm and has a determination that is unstoppable. Her wealth is also something that provides her with opportunities not usually given to the common classes and this gives us a glimpse into the varied roles that many people had in those days.
I am sorry to say Please Stephanie don't sing....by the end of the book I was cringing - when Stephanie is not reciting a sung poem she is actually very entertaining to listen to!
As I had read the book already it was something that I didn't mind putting down and coming back to...had it been my first time maybe I wouldn't have put it down.
Blood Work was not my first choice in the Connelly bookcase, but now I am so glad that I did download it. I was for some reason was very reticent about the blurb - but while listening to this narrative I became transfixed. Connelly truly knows how to weave a story and grab the readers attention. The twist were not what I was expecting and that was exciting, though I did feel the ending was a little rushed, but hey, I am not a writer!
Terrell McCaleb was great, I liked his methodical approach to paperwork and to chasing the "Tell". Connelly allows us to journey with Terrell and this allows us to make a connection with him as he discovers information but also as he travels through his health concerns.
Winston was also a character that I liked, her strong and fair nature appealed to me and this helped create a balance with other police in the story.
Don't mind Dick Hill at all, I find him easy to listen to and soothing to the ear. Nice Job!
A good listen...Thanks
