I was very disappointed with this mystery when you compare it to other Connelly mysteries. The things an "intelligent" person did were ridiculous and far fetched. Very unbelievable plot. I found myself thinking, "why would someone be so dumb to do that!
This is my first book by this author and I enjoyed it very much. I was impressed the narrator pronounced the medical terms so well. My only beef was that the character did some things that seemed pretty unbelievable but overall a great book. I'll read more of Kellerman.
Lotsa vulgarity. Lotsa obsenity. Lotsa blasphemy. Lotsa nonsensical dribble. Lotsa disjointed verbal diarrhea. Lotsa filler. Lotsa time wasted listening to it. Perhaps the worst book I've ever tried to listen to. I fell asleep a couple of hours and didn't miss much!
I thought the plot was good and characters were interesting. I didn't think this is one of his best. My main complaint was the narrator. I had a hard time listening because he finished his sentences was a annoying ahhhhhhh. Good book-ahhhhhhh. Bad narrator-ahhhhhh. I recommend it if you can put up with the ahhhhhs.
This is a wonderful suspense filled thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end. Characters were interesting and well developed. Plot was fascinating. Can't wait to read more of his work.
I am amazed so many found this book "magical". I found it replete with newage bombastic pontifications of philosophic pomposity coupled with supercilious boring repetition which leads me to think he was paid by the word! It was as if he regurgitated everything he could think of about everything he talked about. Next time I read "stick it out and you will be rewarded in the end", I will rather listen to my gut feelings...don't waste your time. PI is not 3.14 but a 1.0! The only good thing about this book was that it ended and that was a long tedious time coming.
On a scale of bad to worse this nearly tops the list. Boring characters and a plot that just stopped! I felt robbed of the time I wasted listening to it. My mind wandered as I listened and it didn't seem to matter.
I enjoy reading mysteries and detective novels. James Patterson is one of my favorite authors and I have read several of his books. As I began to listen to Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas my first impression was, "what is a mystery writer doing writing a "girly" book?" But as I listened I was struck by his ability to write with simplicity, fluidity, and a deep heartfelt sincerity as he wrote a mother?s heart for her precious child. He wrote with a depth of love and with a fullness of life that I could only wish I had been able to communicate to my kids when they were young. I have not been so moved emotionally since I read Tilly by Peretti. I picked up Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas thinking it was another detective story. It wasn't! Isn't it lucky!
The only thing dumber than an anthropormorphic computer named Muffin that whines and dribbles is the terrible voice given it by the reader. Complete waste of time.
If you are seeking an author who is irreverent, vulgar, obsessed with sex and uses foul language that would make a sailor blush then this is the book for you. Couple this with a weak plot and you've got trash. This is the second of her books I quit reading in the middle of it due to disgust. I'll not read any more of her works. I only rated it 1 because I wasn't sure if a zero was possible.
Too bad such a good book was read so poorly. Burt's attempts to whisper is a low course voice and the way he fades away make this book INaudible. I could barely understand him while listening in my car.
