Unlike a number of reviewers, I throughly enjoy Susan Erickson's reading of the IN DEATH books. It may be because Net Library has the first 2 or 3 books in audio format read by someone else. No life in the characters with the other reader, could not tell Roarke was Irish, the intire reading was dull. Not so with Susan Erickson, especially with Eve..
Witness in Death stays with the In Death program. We learn more about the characters and get to solve a mystery. Like all formula books, the reader or listener knows what to expect, knows Eve, with Roarke and the others help, will catch the murderer and peace will reign until the next book. Works for me. I've read them all, now listening to them all and enjoying every moment.
I've listened to Tanenbaum for a long while, usually enjoy his books.. but the new reader in this series is not for me.. I realize there hasn't been a consistent reader for this series, but with this reader there is barely a pause between characters, paragraphs... and no life in most of the characters. A disapointment
different reader.. tanenbaum was fine.
Love Susan Ericksen's narration! This is a re-recording of one of the first audio books in the series (no, they weren't done in order) and the voices of the characters are what we've grown to know and love.
Eve, of course. Why, because she's Eve Dallas.
Everything! She's very good.
The hotels in Dallas.. the upgraded one from her childhood, and Roarke's.
I heard a year ago Susan Ericksen was going to re-record a number of the earliest recorded books, I think starting with Seduction, saying when the recording started, the characters were new to her and didn't know them as well. So good to see the releases are now coming.. Seduction, Reunion, Purity and now Portrait. Good move Brilliance audio!!
I can't say, the story may be good, but see the headline
Not sure who I would have cast, but if a listener has the problem I have.... listening to a narrator inhale at the start of every sentence... and it puts them off.... I can't recommend listening to the book. Read it in print
No, couldn't get past the sound of LDP inhaling
As much as I respect and enjoy LDP as an actor, I will never "buy" another book with him as the narrator.
