I don't think this book could ever be a 4 or 5. The narration was horrendous, the story was very weak and the entire experience was just exhausting.
If she had left the "accent" at home, she would have been fine. I live near Savannah, very few folks down here sound like that. It was exhausting to listen to her "southern" accent.
All of them. They would have been better off going to a Braves game!
The first time I listened I was so angry about the poor representation of Savannah that I honestly could not concentrate on the substance. Once I resigned myself to the fact that Ms. Brown knows very little about our beautiful city, I enjoyed the story.
Genre? Definitely not. Author? Definitely.
Nothing really. His female characters vocalization is painful at time, but his voice is easy to listen to, his diction is better than most and I enjoy listening to him.
After the first listen, yes. It is a quite intriguing plot and the characters have more than just superficial personalities.
I bought this book specifically because it is set in Savannah. The only thing she goes into any detail by name about is the Talmadge Bridge. She briefly mentions the old police station, but completely ignores the many squares and historical aspects of the city. No, they don't contribute to the plot, but they make it more believable to those of us who know the city. It would be like writing a novel set in NYC and not mentioning Central Park or the Empire State building.
Yes, I have several friends who enjoy this genre. While it's not as good as the first in the series, it is still one of the better books I've listened to recently.
Yuck. Ms. Evanovich has a bad habit of rushing the ending and it's happened again.
Dad on the roof. The man is just not right, how he comes up with the insane story he spins is beyond me, but he plays the all-American car dealer with great zest!
Again,another laugh out loud book. There are parts that will have you shaking your head because it's just so inplausable, but it's fun, entertaining and a good time.
While. not as engaging as the first in the series, this is still a great listen. Much of the credit has to go to Scott Brick who handles the many personalities in his usual great way.
Yes! The plot is so detailed, and convoluted, that it definitely requires a second (and now third) listen.
I was amazed at the twists in the plot. The planning of the different cons required some concentration to understand everything that was going on.
I LOVE Scott Brick! He did a great job with the different characters. The scene with the corpse flower was spot on!
I'm sure people passing me on the road thought I had lost my mind in several places! It is funny, plain ole funny at times.
I was hesitant to buy this since the last few Plum books have been less than what I expect from Ms. Evanovich. I guess maybe having a co-writer added some new energy to her writing. The plot is NOT at all believable, but it is intriguing and at times laugh out loud funny.
It's a fun story. I enjoyed revisiting the characters. It's not brain surgery, but if you want to have fun, this is a good choice IF you are not bothered by horrible attempts at accents.
Probably not. I was exhausted by listening to her sometimes "Boston" accent. It was bad to start with, and not at all consistent. I have a very hard time listening to books where the performer is trying to do different accents.
I laughed a lot, it was fun.
I can't honestly endorse this book because of the narration. If you're not bothered by accents then by all means, it is a decent book.
Once again, Steve Berry has hit the nail on the head with a great adventure through American history. As always, Cotton and Cassiopeia (do I sense a romance in the making??) use their wits and wisdom to journey through a maze of clues and situations to save the day.
I particularly enjoyed this one since I am a big fan of Jefferson and have visited Monticello several times. The descriptions of the architecture are spot on!
Write quickly, Steve, I'm missing Cotton already!!
After reading the print version twice and listening to the audio, (aside from needing sleep), I must admit that Mr. Brown has outdone himself. While the action not the breathtaking pace of his 2 best known books, the drama more than compensates for the mad dashes around Europe. This books harkens back to the tension and drama of Digital Fortress more than the intrigue and action of Angels and Demons or DaVinci Code.
This book will surely provide much conversation and assuredly more than a few TV specials about the mysteries of the Freemasons. It treats the mysteries with the usual respect, and still gives us a taste of the unknown rituals that captivate our imaginations.
The subtle religous undertones are thought provoking without forcing ideas on the reader. Again, I'm sure there will be more than a little public exchange about this book.
As always, Paul Michael did a masterful job in interpreting the book. His voicalization are unforced and his voice makes for an easy listen. Definitely a book to engage not only your imagination but also your mind.
Great book, but please get things right in the summaries. His name is Benton Wesley, NOT Wesley Benton.
Otherwise, another great book, as are all of hers!
This book, setting, characters and plot are just too much like the Kay Scarpetta series by Patricia Cornwell. The technical aspects of the recording were good, the reader does a better than adequate job. It just wasn't worth my time, definitely not a book that will end up in my CD library.
This is truly one if the most engrossing books I have ever listened to. I was captivated from the very beginning, and when the emotional climax was reached, I found myself crying along with Tempe. This is one of the best series of books I have found!!
