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.
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!
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.
This whole series of books is very good! Like Clive Cussler's hero Dirk Pitt, Isaac Bell is a little bigger and stronger than reality made possible but the tenaciousness draws the reader further and further into the story!!
Although I truly enjoy the books in the Amelia Peabody series, I am not happy with Barbara Rosenblat's narrative. She tries to change the tone of voice for each character but she is not very good at it. Her normal voice I find rather unpleasant but her male voices are VERY poor.
Anthony Horowitz has written a very good story with the depth of Arthur Conan Doyle. Having listened to it once, I will have to listen again to unravel the plot. Derek Jacobi's voice as Dr. Watson was NOT distracting. There were often times that I forgot it was the famous actor reading the book to me. I highly recommend this book for the Sherlock Holmes fans out there!!
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.
