Yes - this was such a silly title - but the book is a no stress mystery with some feel good characters and lots of play on what we have all read in the news many years past.
Not surprising - but I don't think that the author intended any surprises. The book is like a long conversation with an amusing friend that my have had too much sugar in the last 8 hours.
I don't know. I will have to read the book - which I think will be fun, too.
Yes. I called a friend and we went to see the latest king of the blow up movies (a good day to die hard - which was amazing by the way)
I will read and listen to a few more of his books. Also I will go to see some of the movies that they showed trailors for at the die hard move. except i can't remember the titles.
Yes I will listen again. I have all of the Charlie Parker and the books intended for children. JC provides such outstanding stories that I am amazed.
I don't want to give too much away but getting to hold a hand can be amazing.
He is matched to Charlie and as narrator he brings both male and female characters to life. Some characters might be overlooked by me if I only read the book. Sometimes I disagree with the voice of a character if I read before listen. In this case only Angel and Louie were a little different than I imagined them. Just as good, but different.
Yes, Kevin Kraft has great tone and timing. His voice is clear and I like it. His voice for the child, however, seemed too big. His females are mostly good but his male voices and characters are really great.
I have every Lansdale offered by audible - his range is so great that he writes wonderful dialog and unique views of people - but this story is like there is something he forgot to write about in order to make the reader follow the story.
Story didn't seem to be consistent end to end and characters had big pieces missing. Maybe that was the intent and if so boy did he succeed.
sorrow that I bought it.
I will still buy most Lansdale books but will preview them first.
There wasn't much I enjoyed about this book. No surprises. Same old same old. The first 12 Plums were fun and funny. They have pleased me less and less with only a couple exceptions in books 13-21. So here at 21 it is hard work just to finish the book. So sad. 'bye Stephanie.
a different story would help
yes - once I got through the first 15 minutes I didn't want to stop until the end.
This author is trustworthy - that means his endings of the books are consistent with the stories and characters - although not predictable. Robotham doesn't have to present a long explanation at the end to tie up all the dead ends he wrote him self into and couldn't work out by the deadline. His story makes good reading through the ending. This is unusual even for authors I enjoy on a regular basis. My only objection is that Audible doesn't have book 6 in the series and there is a slight disconnect for me since I've read and listened to all the earlier books.
Perhaps Coben is now after a younger reader - the female narration in this book is so strange - every sentence is an announcement - with the end of the sentence rising rather than falling - since Coben in the past has had quality stuff - I have them all - this must be intentional.
I listened through part one but cannot tolerate any more of the narration by Ms. Dawe so this is my last Coben book.
Jonathan Kellerman's latest - Victim I think is the name. I just put it in my cart.
Luke Daniel's yes, Angela Dawe - never -
yes - the story is good and consistent. The narration tells the story without distracting.
sure - I like the JA Jance stories but this one is not so good.
Something by Jeffery Archer or a re- read of one of William Kent Krueger's Cork series.
I purchased this last year and I have been trying to listen to it but keep giving up. It is really soft porn rather than a mystery. I can't even follow the story because the main female character is so weak, silly and stupid. This book is not to my liking and I tried to listen to it because it had such positive reviews. It is just not worth the effort. I give up - I can't even finish the first part of the book.
Murder in Vegas
New Crime Tales of Gambling and Desperation
by Michael Connelly (Editor)
read by Phil Gigante and Joyce Bean
None in this book but Gigante is a good narrator so I will listen to Murder in Vegas which I purchased at another book site.
It did seem as though it was a book that would provide some redemption or some resolution showing hope to save the children - but it didn't do that - it just provided gross humiliating actions by the female lead and a copy of an old resurfaced Chandler character.
The narrator and the story were well matched. Many surprises some not to my liking but consistent within the story line. I don't want to spoil the story so I give no details but I listened non stop. Now I will listen again.
Cody is my favorite. but.......
I like his change in tone for various characters. strong females don't sound like guys in drag.
