After reading the reviews by all the so-called literary masterminds, the reader Buck Schirner wasn't as bad as I thought. Like most series where you have the same reader over and over then suddenly the publisher, not necessarily the author, makes a change. We are always disappointed at first and complain "Why did they do this!" Over the years there have been complete disappointments in my opinion on reader changes, but in this case it wasn't really to bad. Buck's deep voice in some situations was a bit strong, but his other characters came through flawlessly. Everyone has their favorites, like mine are Scott Brick, which alot of people don't like, and Dick Hill which can't narrate a bad book. There are many others I like but these two are my favorite. Give Buck a chance since he reads the rest of the series and this series is very good. This particular novel gives alot of background on Henry Meloux and where his life has evolved from. I have to say there wasn't anything sinister in the story line but it was a very good read.
The previous ones were much better but this one is still very good
I have read other novels narrated by Buck and I consider him in my top 10 readers
never been able to sit and finish in one sitting
Not interesting at all I have read all his books and after three hours had to give up Richard Ferone us a good reader so it wasn't him
Yes. I read other reviews and found this a decent novel. I do like the characters and the writer does develop them through the other books
There are parts that do make you smile. The rapport between the characters is great
It would have been nice to have the same reader for all the books but they were OK
This book was better than I thought it would be. The story line was typical for a murder mystery. I would recommend it
I liked the shortness of the stories and the message that came with some. I like Craig Johnsons easy writing and enjoy all the characters.
No, not really. This story wasn't what I expected and couldn;t wait for it to end.
In last place
I listen to anything he reads.
I am sure for others it is but for me not all that exciting
Ever notice about reviews that the first 6 or seven depicts the book and narration as the worst I have ever listen to! Get past those and the reviews are in line with what the MAJORITY feels. Yes the novel is loooooong and very convoluted but this is the way the South was back in the 60's. A lot of the internal stories could have been shortened and the ending was one of the most bizarre I have come across, until I found out this was the first of three. I have heard far worst readers than Ledoux so don't let that scare you away because of other reviewers. I did have some trouble at times with his switching back and forth between men and women but it wasn't to bad. Overall the story was well written and did keep my interest where I will listen to the next ones.
Not on the edge but interested
Not the best but not the worst. I would have chosen a different narrator like Hill or Brick
David Baldacci has a hit with this one. Like I said like Jack but with alot more resources.Gives you a good idea what goes on behind the scenes in govt sinister doings.
I like the way they work together. I don't usually like multiple readers but this duo hits it off well
Only people who own dogs could appreciate what goes through Chet's ever changing mind. We really do want to know what goes in their little pea brains sometimes and even if the story isn't as strong as people would like it is really enjoyable. This is a book that makes you laugh out loud at times and the story line is pretty good, but that's not the point. Books should be enjoyed on your interest in the book and not on others. I have read/listen to many books that got terrible reviews and completely enjoyed them while others that got rave reviews were completely, utterly awful! So to each their own. This is a very good series, just don't get too serious about it.
Chet of course! Brilliant mind, ever calculating. Wait! That is really Bernie.
I have always thought his reading of any novel was very good.
These books always keep you on the edge of your seat and is a real page turner. You really hate to stop listening. The characters are people you can relate to.
Jo, Cork's wife. She really kept it together through all the story
A kidnapping wth a twist
I have read the previous two and can't wait to get into the others
