Although Robert B. Parker has died, Jesse Stone lives on very well. Mr. Brandman has taken up the style and mystery quality to a great extent. I didn't notice much difference in the writing and still felt highly entertained. James Naughton continues as the narrator which helps to extend the novel as one of Parker's stories.
I always like the characters that Lucas Davenport has for friends. This story is entangled as usual but the second story with Kidd has drawing power of its own. The drama is written in such a way that you really want to find out how Lucas untangles the situation.
Lucas is always a favorite because he is highly intelligent and driven to succeed. His family and friends make him a caring and loving person even in his pursuit of the evil of others.
Richard Ferrone needs to learn to pronounce the names of cities and towns in Minnesota. He takes away from the story by mispronouncing these names for those of us who know how to say them.
No, it didn't although I did worry about the outcome for some of the characters as they made bad decisions.
I don't know. I might try another and if it is as dull, I would not buy another. I like the Medieval Murder concept but not this particular book.
No. I didn't even finish it because I got bored. The first part was fine but it went on much too long!!
I don't think that I have ever heard Paul Matthews before. He read it well enough to take another book by him.
It would depend on whether the director made it more exciting in the trailer. As I wrote, I like the concept of murder in Medieval Times so I might. Sometimes, directors make a better movie than the book.
This is well-done. The characters are well-developed and the reader differentiates between the characters well enough to keep the listeners mind on the story.
There is a strong desire to find out who committed the murder that is so horrendous. The reader also cares about the main characters' relationship and where it is going. The author has left the listener wanting the next book.
Nothing in particular.
Who could commit such as ghastly murder?
The story is somewhat predictable but it is still a good listen. The reader doesn't use much voice distinction so at times it causes confusion about the speaker. It is supposed to be more thrilling than I have felt listening.
The premise is good if predictable. The characters are well developed.
She pronounces words well and reads a sentence with proper emphasis. There is no question about what the author wrote.
I would not make it into a film.
I will probably listen to this book again and I will also recommend it to friends. I have already bought her next book.
I don't really know what would be a good comparison except maybe a murder show on TV that is completed within the 45 minutes. It is simple and straight-forward rather than intricate like Agatha Christie or Arthur Conan Doyle.
The car run through Litchfield, MN. The descriptions of the cars, costumes and action were well-written.
The characters are well-written. You can thing of them as friends very quickly.
There were a couple things about this audiobook that bothered me. Foremost, that Susan Boyce did not know how to pronounce the names of Minnesota towns. Every time she erred, it took my mind from the story. The second thing, that I could figure out the murderer too soon.
I would and have recommended this book to friends and family. Jack Ryan continues his task of making the world safe against those who seek world domination. It is very well- written with entangling plots and counter-actions. The characters remain true to their traits from other Clancy books.
Other Jack Ryan books by Tom Clancy. It continues the story of Jack Ryan who remains an intelligence analyst in his job as the most powerful man in the world. This does not include the new books written by someone other than Clancy himself.
He reads very well and his voice is perfect for long listens.
The only thing that I didn't like about this book was the swearing. It was used too much and truly unnecessary. When you read the printed page, you can skip those words but it is not possible in an audiobook. It makes Jack Ryan appear more crude than in any other Jack Ryan novel.
Yes, I have already recommended it because it is the style of book that both of us read.
Isaac Bell is a likable hero in the depth of historic trauma. His thinking and decisions are intriguing.
Scott Brick is one of the best readers of audiobooks. He uses several voices to indicate different characters keeping the pace of the story going without having to say the name.
I would recommend this book. The story is complete and character studies are set for the beginning of the series.
I don't know. It is a cop series like Sandford's Prey series but doesn't have just one important character.
Peter Wahl. He is well-defined and Michael Russotto read his part as I see Peter in my mind.
This whole series is well started in this book. One becomes involved with the characters like co-workers or family. It is imperative to find out what happens to them next!
I read all of John D. MacDonald's Travis McGee books years ago. They were great then and great to listen to as well.
This is a low-key mystery series. Trav is a reluctant worker but has fabulous thinking skills for solving people's problems.
I don't know
Yes but I had to break it up. It was better when I could put longer listening periods to it.
John Flanagan has brought this story line to a close by chapters explaining the loose ends from the series - Ranger's Apprentice. It isn't enough since they are still sorely missed in my life but now I know what happened to them.
