I'm a real fan of JL Burke's Robicheaux series and I was taken aback when Mark Hammer's voice instead of Will Paton's came through my ear phones. I don't know about accents, I've never been to LA, but Mr. Hammer 'snorks' while reading and it was very bothersome, distracting. I like the writer's work but not the reader. Maybe he had a cold, or sinus problem but I would love to hear Will read this, I'd enjoy it so much more.
If you are looking for something compelling find another book. But if it's easy, light and just for fun you've found it. I thoroughly enjoyed this unbelievable story. The narrator was the perfect choice. A great beach listen. Buy it.
I was in love with this book, captivated by a story of a mute boy and his dogs. It was a mystery, an adventure, thriller...until the end. And then I literally exclaimed outloud that it could not end in such a way. No! Mr. Wroblewski you should never ever destroy a child that we've come to love. I know it's fiction but I lived this one and you broke my heart.
The best book I've listened to all year...splendid. The multiple narrators...perfect. What else is there to say?
I have heard all my long life that Anna Karenina is considered among the greatest works of fiction. I beg to differ. I was bored stiff with the self-absorbed creatures inhabiting it's pages. I finished it but now I wonder why....sorry Mr. Tolstoy, I just could not appreciate it. The one thing I can think of to recommend 'Anna' is the portrait of pre-WW1 Russia but you must slog through the selfish remontrations to ferret it out.
I read this book a few months ago and still think of the extraordinary events, happenstance and incidents of time, the perseverence and dedication of man. How difficult it must have been and yet how anticlimatical the capture had to be for those who were consumed by the search. Thank you dear author for writing this book in such a straightforward way.
