If this is typical Penny material, it's my last book of hers.
It just wasn't enjoyable and none of the characters were likeable or interesting.
I regret this purchase. It's a book I will never consider finishing.
As each new clue was uncovered I tried to guess the killer and motive. The author kept me in suspense until near the end. Well done.
I thought January did a great job with the teenager's voice, but she did well overall. A couple of voices seemed similar, but it wasn't very distracting.
I have trouble following some audio books because the details are so critical to the story and I'm distracted now and then. I had no trouble with this story.
I believe one reviewer stated that the description of the law office's procedures wasn't realistic. Maybe or maybe not. However, I find that irrelevant to my enjoyment of the book.
I admired the amount of detail in descriptions of locations. How much research did the author do in advance?
My strongest reaction was a wish that I had previously visited the locations so that I could picture them in my mind as they were described. Still, I enjoyed the verbal descriptions.
I enjoyed the book on the whole but somehow the ending let me down. It was a long build up to a pretty tame ending.
Enjoyed Koontz (Lightning) in the past so maybe.
Not sure, I really disliked the character.
Disappointed in the main character
I struggled so hard to read this and in the end, could not finish it. I really disliked this book but have enjoyed other Koontz books.
This is my first Agatha Christie and I enjoyed it. I liked the fact that I could be distracted for a moment and not be terribly derailed from the development of the plot. There was one minor problem: the narrator seemed to do well with British accents, but the foreign accents all sounded like Transylvania, no matter the nationality of the character. It wasn't horrible; just slightly distracting.
I enjoyed the author's writing style, but the plot relies upon many quickly presented details that I sometimes missed. The story demands rather intense concentration. Unfortunately, my player doesn't let you back up a few seconds for a brief replay. My main objection is that the male narrator's attempt at female voices was distracting right up to the end. I just couldn't get used to it.
