I am a huge fan of Sandford and the character but this story is just majorly way too hard to follow. You would need to make a spread sheet of the characters just to even try to keep up with what is going on but even that would not help I'm afraid.
...and, even more boring narration. Good lord...whoever chose her to narrate this book? It was ok listening to her tell her own story of the book she wrote but she has about THE most boring monotone voice of any narrator I've ever listened to. I'm halfway through the story and simply can't go on. I have no idea where the author is going with this and don't plan on trying to find out. Returning at once!
This is my fourth book by Susan Hill and each time I finish one I vow to listen no more. But, like other readers I keep coming back hoping each time that this will be the one where she finally decides to finish a book with a logical ending! I end up trudging through hour after hour of details about the lives of the characters and get about 5% of the actual plot's story line. Then, after spending those hours I get to the end and nothing has been explained about the actual plot! Quite frustrating! So...great stories. Great narrator. Terrible endings!
I simply can't get enough of this combination: Preston, Child & Auberjonois!
Excellent...Pendergast would not be Pendergast without Rene!
Stupid story and terrible narrating. Every other sentence sounded sarcastic and his different voices were almost laughable.
I have listened to this whole book (only because I like the narrator) and do not have a single clue as to what this story was about! Nothing! NO IDEA! Nothing made any sense! I kept waiting and waiting and waiting for something to click. Never happened. What a colossal waste of time. My first time with this author...based on this book I would never read another.
These simply cannot be the same two writers who wrote the Pendergast series. This book is made even worse by the idiotic dialog and the extremely sarcastic way in which the narrator reads the book. Maybe he was simply tortured by having to read this worthless junk and decided to make it even worse!
The only reason I have suffered through the first half of this book is because I love the narrator. Other than that, the story is very boring and the dialog is idiotic. No one speaks as these people do now or in the past. Once again, I spent money based on other people's reviews and again I wonder if we are all listening to the same book.
I will not finish this and will request a refund.
This book contains the most idiotic dialog I think I have ever read in a book! Forget the reviews listed...this book is total garbage! Implausible plot, stupid and pathetic dialog...I simply can't continue to listen and I'm only in the first few chapters.
Most likely not.
I stopped listening half-way through another one of my favorite authors so I could start listening to "Field of Prey". I am not disappointed. I'm only part way in to the story and I am loving it already! I will pre-order any of John Sandford's books and hopefully Audible will keep Richard Ferrone as the narrator. There is no finer combination.
I should have listened to the one negative review here instead of all the other 4 and 5 star reviews. Were they all listening to the same book? I cannot even try to explain how soporifically this book is written. All I know is I'm half way through and thanks to Audible I will get my money back!
