The story is okay - not one of her best. The worst part is the narration, she takes the most normal sentence and tries to make it sound incredible. For example - in a voice the conveys breathless unbelief "he even had plastic plates and forks!!!" Big deal - they were on a picnic of course he had plates - yeesh!
I have enjoyed this series of books. I would rank it in the 55% - 75% of the best audiobooks I have listened to and I have been a member since 2000. That's a lot of books!
Even though the main character was physic the author kept it a bit low key. This made the story more believable in my opinion. We all have probably had an experience when our other senses might have forewarned us led to to call someone just when they needed.
Her cadence remained the same regardless of the situation. No sense of urgency or fear intoned. Also the sounds she made when the author said someone laughed, chuckled or snorted sounded the same and so contrived it made me wince.
I have read and listened to many books from Karen Robards and enjoyed them. This book has good elements of suspense and action but she goes into these long drawn out descriptions that slow the story and bore me to tears. I want to finish it but don't think I can stand anymore narrative. It feels like she was trying to add more pages to her book by repeating how the main characters are feeling over and over again. If you want to kill some time I would suggest this book.
The book was pretty good but the narrator was totally annoying. Her male voices and attempts to speak in New York accents made this book almost unbearable to listen to. I am glad to see the next book has a different narrator.
I like Dillon & Savage books by Coulter but this one bombed big time! The dialog was lame, in the middle of a conversation one character would just say something on a completely different subject - this happened a lot. The main character kept going on an on about what she thought her father would have done - she only knew him for a few weeks - how would she have known what he would of done? The romance between her and Jack was contrived and weak. Don't waste your credit on this book.
I thought this book dragged on way to long without much excitement. There were too many characters who were introduced with brief stories. Later you had to recall all about them to follow the story line. The villian must have been busy in another book because he/she (no hints) only caused Kinsey a small amout of grief - once or twice until the end. You may be better off to get the abridged version. As a Grafton fan I was dissapointed in this latest release.
I have never read this author before and now I am dissapointed to find this is her only book on Audible. The story line kept me interested, the characters were fun, I actually laughed out loud several times. It is refreshing to listen to a book that is void of dirty language.
The Bubbles series is fun with lots of crazy characters. The narrator is easy to listen to.
I should have known better after listening to earlier books, Parker has no imagination when it comes to writing dialog. The constant "he said', "she said" will absolutley drive you up a wall. Don't waste your money or credits on this book.
I am so tired of hearing "he said, she said". Where is the editor? Very predictable - my last Robert Parker for a long time. I was hopeing this one was going to be better.
