I can't imagine anyone enjoying this book unless they are clinical professionals or violent and ill people.
Expected it to be a more intricate plot
He is always good.
The tedious dialogue. We can get the drift of police procedure and family debate without listening to 6 hours of it. Other authors get the idea across much more succinctly and then get on to the next scene. This dialogue was TEDIOUS. It was like listening to 3 hours of police tape and then a 2 hour family argument.
Boring and horrible at the same time. The constant referral to the victim as zombie girl was demeaning. A tortured child is not a joke.
Yes, this is the sixth that I've read/listened to and I've really enjoyed all the others.
I find he is very good at evoking the Italian imagery and characters with his voice and pronunciation. (Bear in mind I'm not Italian and wouldn't know if it authentic or not; but sounds so to me.)
I know there are many book in this series so I will continue to enjoy it, but if this were the first book I read I would not read any more. It started off very entertaining and near the end got weak and finally, didn't seem to make sense.
Can't place it I've listened to over 200!
Can't say, I've read far to many books to start comparing.
One the best performers/narrators that I've listened to. I will actually try books just because he is narrating. On of the best female voice portrayals for a male performer so far. Steve West and Simon Prebble are my favourite male narrators.
I've enjoyed this whole series with the exception of the Deer Leap, The Lamorna Wink, and Dust. The first two I mention I found upsetting, and Dust was just all over the place; made very little sense. (The talking animals were a bit much!)
If you like romances with a bit of detective work thrown in you would probably enjoy this book.
First time, he was adequate.
I though it was trying to ride the fence between romance and mystery/war in order to interest a broader audience. Failed.
The change of location (other than Britain or U.S.) made the book more interesting. Unique for me.
