This book has so many layers...I can see how a series is developing and the characters are likeable and real. The good thing is although there are a lot of characters, there is enough development that I had no trouble remembering who was who.
I thought it was great how Joseph enters the story
Chalmers does a great job- right amount of emotion, love the different voices and the accent. I hope she reads the next one too!
Narration is perfect for this story's perspective. Good plot, twists- liked the cocky & interestingly complex headhunter character. The only negative is the bit about the abortion. It was just unbelievable that a woman who wants children so badly would do that.
The outhouse scene is the best...
I love Jo Nesbo's style and the narration really shines- just the right amount of a-hole for this character! Love it!!
Yes- it's a nicely paced listen, well read. If you like Cornwell's books- you'll like this one. I think I preferred Red Mist...but this one is good too...less personal to the characters. I really think the Cambridge location is the best by FAR.
I like the science and technical parts...such as Luke the Dental Pathologist. He is a great character. Also I love the Leatherback and descriptions of how marine biologists rescued him. I used to rescue manatees- so I can relate.
The Leatherback rescue and body recovery scene with the helicopters...I felt like I was right there.
Listening took a few days...but I listened every chance I got :)
It was kind of a weird solve. I actually missed it and had to re-listen to the chapter again because all the sudden I didn't know what was going on. The end is tied up with a convenient bow...
One BIG message to Patricia Cornwell and her editors: The first Iphone did not have VIDEO. That was a big No No on Lucy's infallable computer skills...
Narration for Lucy's character made her sound a little manly and bored. Narration was wonderful otherwise.
I really liked the narrator. He captured the darkness of the story. The mystery/crime to be sOlved was not coMpletely unpredictable, but this book has some twists and turns. I really liked Fin, the main character and really liked learning about island life.
Maybe not the edge...in the way the dragon tattoo series does...but I could not stop listening! I actually did extra laundry just to listen longer.
Excellent narration- great accents, dark, captured female voices without sounding strange or whiny.
Scottish tale of murder on a remote island
I immediately bought the Lewis Man and can't wait for the third book.
Yes, I may try the next in the series
I thought the end was a bit bland. I love it when there's a bit of humor. This book had less humor
She is GREAT. I usually prefer male narrators, but she is fantastic.
Well- it is a tv series. I watched several episodes after listening to the first book. It was just ok for me.
Sure- it's informative. Packed with little hints, it's easy to forget some cues and worth revisiting to remember details.
He's a good narrator, good voice and tone for instructive writing
I was wondering what the pictures look like that are referred to in the narration. It's not a total loss to not have the pictures- as the description is very good.
