I think that it was a bit confusing when the narrator did not give much pause when going between the characters and the situations that they were in. You finally figure out who he is talking about and he switches without taking a breath. Then he does it again. You need to really be paying very close attention to this switch-a-roo, as to not get confused to what is taking place and who it is happening to.
I did eventually get into this book, but it took awhile. I do not like like to give away plot or endings about a book. I don't want to be the spoiler. So, if you need a mystery to listen/read, it is will do. Not the greatest but not the worst book that I have listened to.
One of the best things about a good mystery is trying to figure out "who done it." Surprise endings are my favorite and I was surprised. I thought that I had it figured out and the book let me think that I got it right. Then "SURPRISE!" I was wrong. Good one for sure. I have all of the books written by Gillian Flynn and I have enjoyed them all. I am looking forward to the next book. It is definitely worth the time and the credit. Enjoy!
Dark Places held my interest through every chapter. The ending was a surprise and that always pleases me in a novel. In my humble opinion, this book is well written and well narrated. It definitely is worth the credit and the time.
You get to know generations of this family and it solves a mystery, that leaves you guessing until the very end. It is a family with many secrets that leave you guessing... It was worth my time and credit. I am looking forward to another book by Laura Lippman.
A new Jack Reacher novel is just what I needed, but I kept falling asleep while listening to it. What is wrong with me? I thought it was me and I was getting bored with Reacher. I guess that by reading the other reviews that I am not alone in the observation that this book was boring. I hate to even utter the words boring in relation to a Reacher adventure. I will continue to buy the Reacher series and hopefully the next one is back to his "edge of my seat" "can't put it down" "finished it in as soon as possible" book.
I have been waiting anxiously for the next book in the Andy Carpenter series and I nearly missed it. It was usually in the Mystery/Legal category. I ran out of books to listen to so I happened to go to Mystery/Suspense (a category I do not often visit) and there is was! I love Grover Gardner as the narrator. To me he is Andy. There is always some humor intermixed in these books and I appreciate that aspect very much. This series is candy to me...
Although there is violence in this book, it is not graphic. Give this series a try... enjoy.
I love Walt Longmire's laid back demeanor. He always seems to figure things out in a atypical fashion. This characteristic tends to make you love him. The books are always an adventure for sure. I am listening to these out of order, which is something that I do not normally do. However, it has not taken away from my enjoyment. I will eventually get them all and go back and listen to them in order. I am indeed entertained by this series.
I am so happy that I took the chance on this series... although at times I have trouble with the English accents.
Great character development, terrific mystery and all together a series that makes me just want more.
You will not be sorry to get this book and "The Cuckoos Calling" (which is the first installment) Enjoy!
I love that I am getting a history lesson with each book in this series. It is well written and narrated. The author takes you along on the adventures of Bernie Gunther. I will get the next book for sure. Enjoy.
Not knowing much about the 1600s, this was a good insight into that era. I am relying of course on the author's research, which seems to me entirely believable. The characters are well developed and likable. I have listened to all the books in this series and I recommend them. If you are a mystery lover as I am, it is a departure from the modern detective novels but make no mistake, it is a well crafted mystery series. Worth the credit and the time. Enjoy.
I really enjoyed this book, and all of the tight spots. I must say that in the Will Robie series, so far this is my favorite. I am anxiously waiting to see what adventure is going to happen next. Well worth the credit and the time. If you like the Mitch Rapp series, you will like this one. Enjoy...
