I loved this story - I'm gettging hooked on FI, but does no one listen to this narrator before the books are released? He puts emphases and inflections in the wrong places, and throws the listener off with his cadence. Surely, there is a director who oversees these readings - if so, that person did not do his/her job properly. Please find someone else to narrate future FI books.
Plot is all but non-existent except for the nearly nonstop bed scenes. The narration sounds like a very low budget porn movie - sound effects and all. The narrator has a terrible "little girl" voice. If she's going to do this for a living, she needs voice coaching so she sounds more like an adult. I was very disappointed in this book, and returned it before I was halfway through it.
What a waste of time and money! I'm glad I can return this one. I couldn't even stand to listen to all of it.
Book is OK - storyline is standard Lincoln Rhyme. I would have given a higher rating but for the narrator. This is the first book I've heard him do, but his voice really got on my nerves!
I've read nearly all of his books, and this was my least favorite! I'm glad Audible has a return policy!
Another great book from Sellers! Loved the story and the narrator was wonderful. Damon Abdallah is SOOO much better than Patrick Lawlor. His voice is clear and his characterizations are very good as well.
As always, the story line is wonderful, and the writing is great. The only problem with this book is the narrator - I didn't like his voice at all - he constantly sounds as though he needs to clear his throat. His vocal characterizations leave a great deal to be desired as well. But for the narrator, I would have given this book 5 stars for overall instead of just 3.
story was great (as always), but I HATED THE SOUND EFFECTS - the spookymusic(?) in the background - and especially the various characters sobbing and crying! I would much prefer just a simple narration - it doesn't need to sound like a radio melodrama!
Unseen was better than Criminal (which I returned), but I still don't care for the flashback style Slaughter has adopted with these last two books. Hopefully, she'll return to her previous brilliant style. As always, I loved the Kathleen Early narration.
Very disappointing afte listening to the first 4 in the series, narrated by C.J. Critt! This narrator is distracting - reads too fast, and I HATE her accent! Also, why is a 3 hour book so expensive!???? Think I'll return it, and I won't buy any more, because there aren't any more narrated by Critt, and I don't want to take any more chances on these narrators.
LOVED the story - great plot, but I DO NOT like this narrator - his cadence is all wrong. Why does no one "proof" his performance before release? Overall rating would have been a 5 star but for the narrator.
