Dear audiobook publishers: Why do you have narrators who lisp?
This is a good story which is completely ruined by a narrator who has a distracting lisp. Sounds like she has a tongue stud. The book is worth the read, not the listen.
Was there an editor for this book? If there was, fire him or her. No qualified editor would have let this horribly written book get out to the public. The writing makes no sense, words are used incorrectly and sentences run on and on. The narration is no better. Characters all sound the same so you don't know who's talking and the book is read in a sloooooow breathy whisper. Deleting from my library.
I can't believe the same author who wrote the first books in the series actually wrote this! What happened? The writing is silly and juvenile and Rebekah is annoying! The narration was also worse than in previous books. Her speech was "wooden" and lacked enthusiasm. And for a book about the Sinners, there was so little actually happening with the band. Disapointing!
As usual, I had high hopes for another great book. Unfortunately, this was one of the most boring In Death books. If it hadn't picked up towards the end, I would have questioned whether or not JDR had somebody else write it. Also, S.E. decided to narrate this book soooooo sloooowwwlyyyyyy. I thought something was wrong with my iPod!
Probably not from the the author but the narration was good.
The most entertaining parts were about the inventions that arose out of necessity while building the fair. The parts about the serial killer were OK.
I have read and love all the Kindle books from both series. After reading many of the reviews I purchased the audiobooks on sale. I must agree with the negative reviews of the narrator. Her Bones voice is HORRIBLE and her Spanish accent for Juan is even worse! I'll stick to the "printed" version.
As many follow-up books as Jeaniene wants to write, I will read (not listen).
So glad I found this series! And to have them narrated by Susan Ericksen is a bonus. Captivating story...I'm off to buy the remaining three books.
Yes. Especially those who enjoy the humor of Jennifer Crusie and Susan Elizabeth Phillips.
No, but I'll be sure to check out some of her other performances. She was terrific!
No crying, but a lot of laughing.
The characters' names sound the same and are very distracting. The narrator did the best he could with Trace, Pris, Chris and Alice but I constantly found myself saying,
Like his performances in Black Dagger Brotherhood, and although he did a fine job with this book, the story is weak.
Another author's re-write.
This book was full of witty, amusing dialogue between characters. It's one of those extra special In Death books that you'll listen to over and over.
I don't think I'd say I was on the edge of my seat, but I didn't guess the villain until the end.
