I couldn't wait for the follow-up to The Glass Rainbow to come out in audio and, when it did, I was not disappointed. The story and characters (especially Clete's secretary!), as always, were wonderful and imaginative. And, best of all, Will Patton's narration was spot on! I will definitely listen to this one again. A toast to you, James Lee Burke, for yet another awesome novel!
I'm always like, "yeah, yeah" when I hear there will be a follow-up to an already amazing book because the sequel almost never really measures up. But, in the case of Dr. Sleep...you are the master, Stephen King! I loved everything about this audio book: the story, all of the characters and, as always, Will Patton did a truly wonderful narration (when I read Will Patton would narrate; I got very excited and preordered the book). I don't want to spoil any of the details for the "reader." If you've read The Shining, you owe it to yourself to listen to this story; you will love it -- I did and I will be listening to it again.
Having read Heart Shaped Box, I wasn't surprised that Joe Hill had another great story to tell and he did with creepy and heart-racing style. The characters were wonderfully brought to life by Kate Mulgrew. The combination of story and narrative made this one of my favorite listens.
This is my first Jo Nesbo book and I was just blown away at how great it was! I will be listening to The Leopard next and am convinced the story and narration will be just as great as The Snowman. Listen to this audiobook. You'll be glad you did!
What a great book! I love the way the characters flashed back into their pasts and relayed to the reader everything within their environments including how female detectives were treated (badly!) back in the day. It was a gripping story and I will definitely start at book 1 of this series. Kathleen Early's narration was very, very good which only added to my enjoyment of this story. Kudos, Karin Slaughter!
I didn't know how I would feel about this audio book. I listened mainly because I wasn't due for two new books for a couple more weeks. But, I listened to this story and from the very first chapter, I knew I would enjoy it. The three main characters are brought together again after a murder(?) 17 years ago and as the story unfolded, I must have guessed four different people who could have done the deed and didn't really guess correctly until close to the end of the book. It was simply great. Scott Brick did an excellent narration. I will definitely listen to more stories by this author and narrator.
I truly enjoyed 11-22-63. It was a different "King" as he spins a tale of time travel and love, as well as a historical of the events surrounding the Kennedy assassination. This was a credit well spent and I will recommend this novel to my friends. Way to go Stephen King! You still rock!
I am usually pretty great about guess the ending of murder or "mystery" novels, but I have to hand it to the author, Laura Lippman, I was totally surprised by this book. I enjoyed it very much and was happy it wasn't predictable. The characters were believable and the story was too. I will recommend this one to all my friends.
