This installment was an absolute let down. I absolutely love the work of James Patterson, but a little more effort should have been put into writing this book. It just didn't read like a complete addition to the women's murder club. There didn't seem to be much effort or thought when it came to a storyline. It was really a waste of a credit.
A non stereotypical black character and turning him into a stereotypical idiot. How classic. And a sorry excuse for a lawyer. If that's a lawyer, then thank goodness this is a work of fiction. Because, if need be I would have to represent myself.
The entire story was disappointing. Stereotypical, negative, predictable and juvenile. Just SAD....
I can't blame the narrator. It was horrible to start.
Disgust. What a totally disconnected author. He should stick to what he knows. If you vrew up ivy league. Then admit that you're clueless to everything else. And insensitive.
I would. I am a fan of the "Will Trent" series. But....wow, Cop Town is making me think twice.
Not in this genre, but definitely by this author.
Her performance was fine. Her voice worked well with the characters.
Where would I begin, what a loaded question.
I understand where and when this book takes place and I understand that this book is a work of fiction. With that being the case I am still offended at how the author portrays her black characters in this book. How is it that all of the black characters are on heroin,dirty,filthy,pimps,mean,angry and "less than"....
The difference between slavery and the holocaust is representation in history approaches both atrocities differently. It doesn't mean that one group of people is better, cleaner and more deserving of understanding and respect. Karin Slaughter has managed to make all of her black characters regardless of time,place or setting seem like they aren't worth the shit on a shoe. I was offended by her portrayal of characters. This was a waste of my time and credit.
This is a wonderful series. What makes it enjoyable is the consistency of the books themselves. There is a flow, a reader isn't wondering "did I miss something". However, in saying that I am in no way implying that the books are redundant, obvious or routine.
The plot always keeps a reader guessing. There are quite a lot of twists and turns that are nicely unexpected.
As stated by other listeners, is seems as though she never took the time to listen to the other narrator prior to recording herself. A few of the characters names were mispronounced and a few of the voices were quite a bit, off. She does seem to have a nice flow of speaking. Maybe, if she were the initial narrator it wouldn't have been so bad;a listener would be use to her style. I do believe if she narrates a series from conception she would do wonderfully.
It was definitely entertaining as usual. A little laughter,surprise, suspense and overall fun. This is a really enjoyable series.
I didn't appreciate the predictability in the story line. And the narrator was horrible. It almost felt as though he was making fun of the characters. His voices were less of a theatrical change, but more of a mocking unenthusiastic change.
No. But, if this is the kind of narrative quality I should expect from this author, I will save my credit and just go to the library.
It wasn't a terrible book. But if you're seeking depth and dimension..... This book is not for you. It it too predictable.
Absolutely a book that makes you think. I like this book very much. An author that truly understands that life does have a "gray area".
I wasn't at the edge of my seat, but I was pleasantly surprised about the angles the author took. This book thinks outside of the box. I found a book that sees Florida as I see it. No offense, but the state of Florida is definitely "special" to put it mildly.
I was able to identify each character. Everyone had an identity. Very well done.
No extreme reaction, But totally worth the listen and the credit. I am not easily amused nor am I ever startled or surprised but anyone's behavior, but this book made me laugh and had me raising my eyebrows. Very well done.
I do enjoy James Patterson books very much, however I feel that maybe he is taking on a bit more than he can chew. Probably spitting out books too quick with no true thought behind them. This book is a bit hard to follow. I did not enjoy the characters. There were some very slow areas in the book that made me fast forward so that I wouldn't fall asleep. It was a bit hard for me to get through.
The whole story threw me off this time.
boring, slow, undetermined (characters weren't differntiated properly. I wasn't quite sure who was who at times.)
No. I would purchase an Alex Cross Book, And maybe even another Women's Murder Club book, but definitely NEVER a Private audiobook.
