I have read all of the FBI series a number of times, but do not enjoy the audio books because the reader does a terrible job.
She does a terrible job with the various voices. She cannot do male voices at all. She made very macho verile Dillion Savich sound like Pee Wee Herman. All of the male voices are high and squeeky.
Yes, if you can get around the readers voice, the story is great. Luckily I have read the book a couple of times.
The reader for this book was so bad that I couldn't finish the ebook. She couldn't keep her voice the same from sentence to the next. She shifted back and forth from southern, french to hispanic and even asian, all being spoken by the same person. She also portrayed the best friend as a sqeaky voiced half wit.
As with all of the "In Death" series, this book is engrossing and has really intriguing plot line. Unfortunately Susan Erikson's is as always, irritating, snotty and abrasive. She makes Eve Dallas sound like a stone cold bitch. She does not seem to understand that Eve doesn't have to raise her voice or speak in a confrontational manner at all time. She should be allowed to speak in a normal tone when speaking to people. Even when threatening someone it is more effective to use a calm quiet menacing voice. Unfortunately Ms Eriksons narrates all authors in this manner.However I continue to listen to these books because I love the stories. Where's Loralei King when you need her?
The various wacky characters.
Getting there is the most fun
Lorelei King is great. She not only has all of the main characters down pat, but they are true to the written descptions of each character. I have read all of Ms Evanovich's books and have just recently started listening to the audios. Ms King is also very consistant in her voices for each character through out the series. She is one of the best. I wish she would do JD Robb's "In Death" series.
I have actually laughed out loud at some of the sceene, particarlly with Grandma Mazur or Lula.
I would get a different narrator.
As always, Ms Davidson saves her killer close, until the end.
Narrator has very very snooty, sarcastic style though out the entire book. She is so bad that when a body is discovered you expect her to say "Whatever", like she is to bored to be bother. She narrated all of the "Goldie" bookes in this same bored sarcastic manner.
Narrator has snotty sarcastic reading
Story was interesting, book was better.
Narrator has very irritating voice. The entire story is done in a very snotty sarcastic voice.
