No, the narration ruins the story.
After 6 books in the series Susan Denaker IS the voice of the characters. This is especially so for C. K. Mackenzie. I like Christina Moore as a narrator but NOT for the Amanda Pepper series. I found myself not liking the story because I didn't like her narration of the story. Susan Denaker is the voice of the Amanda Pepper series.
I want to finish the series but looking forward I see that Christina Moore narrates other titles in the series and I am dreading those titles. How can one enjoy a title or story when you just want it to be OVER.
Perils of motherhood.
Tess and Carla Scout in the grocery store.
Jan Maxwell is a fine narrator and all of her characters done well.
Yes and I did.
I enjoy the maturing of Tess and her life. I worried that Laura Lippman might no longer write Tess Monaghan books when Tess became a mother. Excellent that Tess can be Tess and so much more.
If you listen to Trouble in Mudbug you have the whole story and this is just repeating the story.
The narrator is fine and enjoyable.
The whole book or story.
In the top 10, there are a lot of excellent audiobooks to listen to, however, I am very fond of Aloysius Pendergast.
A real toss-up between the botanical garden and the hospital.
Again a toss-up between the botanical garden and the hospital.
The hospital scene.
Fans of the Pendergast series will be elated! Don't begin with this book if you are not up on the series. There is history that will leave the listener confused and missing out on many great stories.
No, I wouldn't recommend this book because it isn't part of the Miss Julia series, even though the title suggests it is Book 16 in the series, I disagree. I was really disappointed in the story and the writing is not in keeping with other titles by Ann B. Ross.
I think I will listen to other titles in the "Miss Julia" series. I do have reservations after listening to Etta Mae's Worst Bad-Luck Day.
Julia Gibson gives a fine performance. I have become accustomed to the narration of Cynthia Darlow. Ms. Darlow is the narrator for all 15 titles of the Miss Julia series that I have listened to and therefore is the only voice that I associate with Etta Mae, Hazel Marie and Miss Julia.
Not really. This isn't really a stand alone title but it isn't part of the series, in my opinion.
This title just didn't feel like the usual writing style of Ann B. Ross. The antics written for Miss Julia near the end of the book during the Lingerie Shower/Party were so out of character for Miss Julia that I question did Ann B. Ross write it?
I wanted to intervene, oops one word too many.
Not sure there was something that I liked about the story, I was angry at the injustice.
Anna Bentinck's performance was excellent. The narration was difficult due to age changes in the main characters as well as education and life experiences that occurred over time.
The ending was heartbreaking, moving and as a listener I could feel it coming from a mile away, but there was no stopping it.
Perhaps it is the greatest complement to an author for a reader/listener to express strong emotions when discussing their story, I don't know. But many times while listening to The Wicked Girls I was angry at the injustice done to Jade and Bel. SO MANY other adults and siblings were responsible for the events that lead to the death of Chloe. I can't think of a more heinous character than Bel's mother. Many reviewers made comments like, "I didn't want to like these girls but I did." Jade and Bel were victims as much as Chloe. I feel a tirade coming on so I better end.
I typically don't recommend books to others unless asked for my opinion. However, I have found reading reviews from other listeners to be helpful sometimes.
Yes, I like Greg Iles books and I like the Penn Cage series.
I did not have a problem with the narrator of Natchez Burning. Quite a few listeners expressed that they missed Dick Hill but personally Dick Hill is Jack Reacher. I believe the story could have been better narrated by someone with an authentic Mississippi/Louisiana accent. But I did not have an issue with David Ledoux.
The story is long and at some point I was reading online reviews and discovered that this is the first in the trilogy. I did become frustrated at the main characters near the end of the story. All through the story everyone is constantly being warned about how dangerous the Double Eagle group is and Brody Royal, the main story line focuses on the heinous crimes committed by them, but the main characters constantly ignore their own advice. By the end of the story I was very tired of their stupidity.
I have listened to the 3 previous books in the Dexter series in which the author, Jeff Lindsay is also the narrator. Nick Landrum was just not able to carry off the wit of Dexter. Per my headline for the review, Mr. Lindsay is the voice of Dexter.
I enjoyed listening to Al Roker, of the Today Show narrate this 1st in the Billy Blessing series. Who knew Al Roker was so multi-talented? Anyone who listens to the Morning Show Murders will!
Can't pinpoint one, the whole story and performance was well done.
Al Roker does an excellent job of entertaining the listener. Very good performance.
There are many funny parts and so yes the story made me laugh.
