I absolutely adore the Kinsey Millhone alphabet series; what I do not like is the change of narrators in midstream. I had a hard time initially with Mary Pfiefer as the narrator, but I had gotten used to her and enjoyed her voice. Judy Kaye, while competent, is really not believable as Kinsey; nor is she believable as Henry--she makes him sound feeble and old. I am very disappointed in this change and even more disappointed that there was no explanation as to why.
When I read the first reviews, I was a bit hesitant. But Grisham didn't disappoint. I read a review stating that he delves too deeply into the characters. If that's your opinion, you're reading the wrong author. Read James Patterson. His books are full of action, three-page chapters and not much feeling. If you're looking for a book that will let you delve into the characters thoughts and feelings, this one is for you. Its a bit tough to follow at times, due to the narrator's lack of "voice" performances. Everyone sounds the same. But if you pay attention, it is so worth listening to!
If you're just starting this book, its a tad slow. But...keep listening--at least until you get to Part II. I won't give anything away, but it is worth the wait. I still haven't finished the book but now, instead of being a way to pass the time, I look forward to listening. Hang in there! Its worth it!!
I usually love Baldacci's books, but this one was tedious and overly long without much being said. I've been listening to this series, but after this last book am wondering if I'm wasting my time. Don't bother with this one; even the wonderful narrator couldn't save it.
It was so lovely to be along on the journey of this life changing adventure. Not many of us would have the courage to just hop on a bike and keep going. I've recommended this book to many friends and they've all loved it. Do yourself a favor and give it a listen. Its so worth it!!
CJ Critt broke the story. I really tried to get past her dramatic pauses and squeaky voice, but I just couldn't do it. I hesitated for months before ordering this book because she was the narrator. When I finally broke down and ordered it, I hoped that by the middle of the book I'd be used to her. I wasn't. Its a terrific story and I love Lisa Gardner's books, but I will never again listen to anything narrated by Ms. Critt. I just can't get past her voice.
I didn't listen to Tana French's books in order, having listed to A Faithful Place first. But In the Woods and this one soon followed Faithful. I love her books and can't wait for her to write another. Books that delve so deeply into the psyche of the characters are such fun to listen to. The reader in this book did an excellent job with all the voices, especially that of Daniel. I was sorry to have it end and, like many others, hope that she will one day write more with Cassie as the main character.
Oh, for the person who said this book was too long and filled with much unnecessary information, get the abridged version next time if you want brevity.
