The idea for the book was good and overall I really enjoyed it. I thought it dragged a little in the middle, but it was certainly well worth the read.
I doubt it. Bad writing.
All of them.
The dialogue must have repeated itself over and over and over....again till you thought, Huh? It was just taking up space for bad writing. Plus, no one would act like this in a real situation. It was ridiculous. I had to stop after a chapter because it was too silly to suspend my imagination that far.
Not really. I'd save my money for something more interesting.
I don't think so.
Yes, I suppose so.
Sorry I got it. Couldn't even really finish it.
Jo Nesbo is one of my favorite writers. This is the first in this series so it really gave me a good idea of how he started out, yet it didn't feel dated at all.
Yes, as usual.
I like Sean Barrett.
I will read every Jo Nesbo book that comes out in this series.
Yes. The entire series was very entertaining considering all that's going on in this part of the World.
Maybe Daniel Silva spy novels, but just because they are Middle East based because Daniel Silva and his character Gabriel Allon really aren't similar. They have an entirely different premise, but it has the intrigue of that part of the World.
He did very well with the character's voices.
If you want to be entertained I think this will be a good choice.
Darn Good writing! Good writing is when you make it seem so "easy." Great characters, and always a top-notch mystery to solve in a wonderful location. There's always a philosophical bent to the way Craig Johnson writes, and his Walt Longmire character is such a likable, wise, and unassuming man that what he says sticks with you. Like good 'ol horse sense. His friends are just as amazing. The Indians on the "Res", their way of living their lives.They display simple wisdom. It just all works to make this whole series "Different."
You can't compare Walt Longmire mysteries to any other books because they are unique.
Walt, and really, all of them because they are all so unique, lol.
Yes, it made me laugh because there is so much irony in the things that are said. There are so many dry and funny things said. Cry? Yes, because sad sides of human nature are exposed.
I love this series. There are a few series I will always look for and this is one of them.
Don't generally listen to books twice.
There was a lot of depth to the subject of the book plus it was a good mystery. It was different than your average mystery.
She is an excellent narrator. One of the best I've heard when it comes to women. She has lots of subtlety and wonderful dynamics to her voice. Terrific.
Well worth the purchase. I think I even lucked out and got it at one of the sales.
Who would believe a sophisticated guy like this would fall for a girl who comes off as "Stupid" as this? Her voice makes her sound like a total "ditz." They should have gotten someone else to narrate this. She ruined everything I heard about this book for me.
What can you say about a classic like this! The narrator though...So hard to understand that it makes it hard to get through this. On a book notorious for being this long, it's almost a "crime" to have someone like this narrate it. For that reason alone I would NOT suggest you get this!
The subject matter is weird, of course. But it does bring up the question of "why" there is so much of a fascination with serial killers. I didn't really know that this was what the book was about. It kept me interested though. Very good.
