I only listen to audio books so I wouldn't know.
They are all my favorite characters. It's the cast of characters that make the novels so interesting, many of them are regulars.
I haven't listened to him before. I was just happy that he didn't annoy me.
Yes, it was. It was a terrific book and I didn't want it to end.
This is Jeffrey Deaver at his best with an excellent narrator. There are so many turns and twists that you can't figure out and don't see coming that I began to wonder how Jeffrey Deaver could even have such a complex imagination. I'm sorry that his series isn't narrated all by the same person. I don't like going from one narrator to another when I'm listening to a series.
I purchased this book not knowing anything about the author. I was so surprised to discover this book as well written, well read, more twists and turns that I couldn't see coming than I'd ever expected. Don't miss this one is you like good mysteries and suspense.
It's a shame when I can't get past the narrator to listen to the book because I have no choice but to give the entire book one star when it might be a really good book. I just can't manage to hang in there when the narrator makes me want to stop listening altogether.
How did this guy get a job as a narrator. He should be recording the New York City phone book. Why doesn't Audible list Scott Brick and Dick Hill, especially Scott Brick as great narrators?
I couldn't listen to the book because I couldn't listen to the narrator. Too bad. I like Tess Gerritsen.
Desperate to find a narrator who doesn't making listening painful I tried this author because Scott Brick narrates the story. I was amazed that I'd never heard of this author before because the book was terrific. Full of suspense, never boring, ending completely unexpected. I'll look for more books by this author.
NIGHT FILM begins fast paced and intriguing. It stays that way but about halfway through I noticed that the action was decreasing as the protagonists thoughts and philosophy were focused on more. Two thirds of the way through the book I began fast forwarding and didn't miss a thing except more of the protagonist's dramatic monologue.
By the time I reached the end of the book I kept waiting for a twist for something to lift up the story and create a compelling climax and satisfying end. It was painful right up to the last minute because that never happens.
Pessel is a promising writer. Once she figures out how not to get lost in her own story she'll produce a robust story from beginning to end.
I was completely engrossed in this story, so much so, I hurriedly went online as soon as it ended and purchased the next in the series, only to discover that I wasn't ever going to find out how Pendergast escaped and I didn't remember who had different colored eyes so there was no help there. I was so disappointed after starting the next book and discovering I was never going to know, I came back online and reduce my rating of the story from five down to one. If Pendergast weren't the mail protagonist maybe it wouldn't matter but in this story it matter. I am very disappointed that the book didn't develop a complete conclusion.
I've listened to a few novels byJD Robb recently. I think I'm done listening to her because there's nothing remotely interesting about the protagonist and her husband having sex every day in every way with each encounter detailed to the point that I finally figured out I could fast forward and save myself the exasperation of wondering why the reading had to know every touch, every kiss, every groan, every orgasm, in every way possible. Really? All Roark has to do it touch Eve and she has an orgasm that leaves her shakking but not finished. I mean shouldn't he have to do something besides lay his hand on her?
Eve being abused as a child doesn't give her carte blanch to be caustic and rude to everyone around her, even her friends and husband. The story lines are shallow and the plot needs more development. There are some interesting moments but Robb needs to use the sex spaces to develop more intrigue and deeper writing.
I would have given this book five stars. I am generous with stars because really good listens are hard to find. However, Ms. Brown seems to think that describing sex acts between the characters in long, drawn out detail to the point that I started fast forwarding and had to do that several time to get past the entire scene, is erotic. It's not erotic, it's distracting to the storyline, unnecessary, and maddening to wait for the action to begin again. I don't care exactly how he touched her nipple with what fingers in the midst of her gasp, etc. etc. etc. It's a distraction, especially since there are many sex acts in the book, between the same two people. Dick Hill learned how to make his female characters sound real instead of brain dead twelve years old and that's a big improvement and welcomed.
The first few paragraphs are interesting. It goes downhill from there. After forty-five minutes of listening I couldn't take it anymore. It's a long narrative about what the protagonist is and isn't doing. Save your credit. The narrator was pretty good.
