The narrator is superb! Her characterizations are wonderful. The story is enthralling although sometimes a bit too dark for me, involving some fairly grisly murders. I'm willing to get past that though for the enjoyment of Khristine Hvam's amazing narration. She gives alien characters truly believable voices.
I liked this one so much in fact that I purchased the next in the series. So there you are, how's that for a recommendation!
Recommended with the one caveat that I would not listen to this while falling asleep, (which is one of my favorite things to do with audio books), just because it has some rather gruesome descriptions. Other than that, a truly enjoyable story and narration.
As if the story wasn't good enough, add in Bobby Cannavale with gorgeous inflections of tone and you've got one superb audio book. The story is good and has enough twists and subplots to keep me guessing. I'm a big mystery buff and have listened to tons of Robert B. Parker with Joe Mategna narrating. This one surpasses even Joe. Highly recommended for anyone who loves a good old fashioned detective novel, complete with wide eyed rookie and hard boiled old-timer.
Hey kid, pass me the coffee and donuts!
Lindsay Duncan is a talented narrator, giving inflection and color to each character. Her take on Mrs. Bennett made me laugh out loud a couple of times. Really delightful! She really got the "poor me" whiny voice of Mrs. Bennett without making it grate on my ears. I love Jane Austen and especially Pride and Prejudice, so it goes without saying that I love the story. It's a classic for good reason!
This makes it an absolute joy to commute! I find myself sitting in the driveway not actually wanting to get out of the car!
Lovely melodic tone, great story, what more could you want? Highly recommended.
I haven't even finished this one and I can't wait to start the next. I am enthralled with this unabridged version. And Rob Inglis' narration is delicious indeed! The story springs to life with the various characters as Mr. Inglis deftly changes inflection and tone, giving each character a unique "voice".
The story itself is Tolkien at his best. Full of mystery and humor, daring-do and lots of twists. It will keep everyone enthralled!
Delightful in every way! A must listen for all! (Not just us Hobbits!)
Engaging, full of detail and well paced. Loads of information, background and juicy bits. Alfred Molina's narration is fabulous!! His inflection and pace are great and he infuses the story with plenty of character. Highly recommended.
Having just listened to the first chapter, I found myself laughing out loud. Funny stuff!! Jon Stewart's narration is spot on - funny, clear and well produced.
I found myself leaving the house early for class just so I could listen to this audiobook in the car. Really great narration by Lou Diamond Phillips. Wonderfully taut and gripping action throughout. Couldn't "put it down!" Highly recommended!
