First TG does a great job of putting you in the action, THEN he makes you rehear what you just read/listened to while the character explains everything in extreme detail over and over again. I think Mr. Goodkind thinks his readers are either stupid or have memory problems. Couldn't finish this mess.
That he lacks imagination to at least find new words to repeat the same thing over and over again. Get this man a thesaurus.
Pretty Good B-
THE FIRST CONFESSOR
Love me some Charlie Davidson. Yes, she is sooo much like Stephanie Plum...but so what. Mrs Jones admits to that, so I see no problem with it, not enough Stephanie's in the world. Lorelei King does amazing as always. Keeps me interested, minor twists so I don't KNOW what's going to happen next. Gimme more!
Her AMAZING voices! Perfect inflection and cadence.
Charlie Davidson ALWAYS make me LOL...gotta watch that when at WalMart alone :D
I would like to recommend this to people who just want a "taste" of Anne Rice or who have read this book before but need a refresher. This story is amazing! THe characters come to life even in this version. But if you do like this...get the hard copy.
The characters are much more believable than Ice Cold. Narration was much better. Still weak in the plot but pretty interesting and somewhat original (which is important to me)
WOW...more original worlds from Mr. Card. Amazing. Very thought provoking..love historical fiction and SciFi..this fits both. Amazed as always by him.
Narrator was good...great value.
One of the worst written books I've ever encountered. The main character, Isabel (can't believe I remember her name, she was that boring) is SUPPOSED to be an ice cold, hard, strong ect ect, woman. Right off the bat she is made into a romatic moron. Secret agents do not make the mistakes that ALL of these characters do. Killian got cold? She left her purse unguarded and neither thought of him excaping through the dumb waiter? Stupid.
I'm only giving this 4 outta 5 cause it just wasn't long enough. Didn't want it to end.
Another new fav writter for me. A long story, but kept me into it.
Kept me entertained. Narration was excellent. Will look for more from both Groff and Roberts.
