It's another of the best in the Eve Dallas series, if I could say it was page turning I would but instead I will say that I couldn't turn it off. The stories are all good but this is one of the best.
It had intrigue, horror, suspense and got to answer some of the questions we have had about Eve (the main chararcter). Simply stunning story
She is now and will always be Eve Dallas....I couldn't after so many books think of her as anyone else. She captures in my mind the true essence of the characters in the series and has made them her own so that they come alive in our imaginations as we listen. Brilliant.!
I am always amazed at how J D Robb can write such horror and suspense and then blend such stories together such as the bride series (as Nora Roberts) which are so joyous and loving - what a talent!!
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
Probably if I had absolutely nothing new to listen to!
The author captured the unusual crime really well and therefore I enjoyed the thrill of the chase.
Yes, as she does make the lead character of Taylor her own.
No but it was intriguing in parts.
It was a pleasant story to listen to. It isn't one of the greatest of the Christie stories however its still a good listen.
Tommy and Tuppence are a pair of typically Christie busibodies. They are entertaining in their own inimitable ways. Though in parts the story is predicable the characters do assist in holding the storyline up.
Not too bad, it was pleasant to listen to and she does definately enjoy her roles.
I couldn';t work out the killer until they were revealed...I was so intriqued in how Dallas figures it out...Outstanding !
The whole cast, Dallas, Peabody, Rourke (ohhhh) McNab they are all brilliant.
She is as always a fantastic Dallas, but her rendition of Peabody still amazes me so different and unique. She makes the cast of characters come to life.
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.
I love both - the feel of paper but i also love the idea of being able to do housework and still listen to a brilliant book
reminded me a lot of Matthew Rileys Scarecrow...but both are unique in their own way.
