I have been listening to audio books for years.
Some narrators are better than others, but all of them were tolerable, until now.
This is the first one out of 100+ books that I could not bare to listen to.
She basically just read the book in a very bland slow style. It was hard to distinguish characters because they all talked slowly with the same bored tone.
The plot seemed good, but the narrator was so bad, that it was not a good listening experience.
I would not recommend this book, only because of the narrator.
It is not enjoyable the way it is presented.
I have listened to numerous suspense books over the years and some have been pretty gory, but this one I had to stop after just an hour of listening.
If you like severe torture in detail then you will like the book.
For me, it was sick!
I have listened to all of Lisa Jackson's books and like them, except this one. I know all the characters from this series, but couldn't tell who was who or what anyone was doing. I have no idea what the plot of the book was about.
Usually if a book starts off slow, it gets interesting during the 2nd half, but after an hour into the second half and still not being able to figure out what was going on, I downloaded another book and gave up on this one.
I don't know if it was the narrator or if the book was just bad, but it was very bland.
This was a great story! From the beginning, I didn't want to stop listening.
Definitely recommend this book.
This was an excellent book. I usually listen to authors, Tess Gerritsen, Nora Roberts, Tami Hoag, Lisa Jackson, J. T. Ellison, J.D. Robb, Lisa Gardner and more, but have never listened to Karen Robards.
Unlike a lot of books which start of slow, this one had my attention from the very beginning. I just did not want to stop listening.
If you like authors such as the ones listed above, you will love this author.
I like listening to series and I believe this is the 4th or 5th book in this series.
The first few I really enjoyed...
The writer must have had writers block because this was way to far fetched and the focus was ridiculous.
I should have payed attention to other reviewers.
This was a really good listen.
If you like authors like Tami Hoag, JD Robb etc. you will really enjoy this book.
Normally when I listen to books I get captivated and don't want to stop listening. This was not the case with this book. It was just OK.
I like real suspense writers like Tami Hoag, Tess Gerritsenn, J.D. Robb, Lisa Gardner, but unfortunately I have listened to all their books and thought I would give this one a try.
If you like mystery/thrillers/suspense and like to be kept on your toes, you would probably be disappointed in this book.
This was my first time to listen to a Karin Slaughter book... It was great!
This author was right up there with my favorites. Tami Hoag, J.D. Robb, Tess Gerritsen to name a few
It was one of those that you couldn't stop listening to.
The book started out slow, but by the time you got to the 2nd half, I couldn't stop listening to it.
Great characters and the narrator did a good job portraying them.
The only thing that I didn't like was the ending. With all the excitement through the book, the ending seemed flat.
The book started out slow while Nora Roberts builds the characters, but once she is done with character building, it was really good.
Lots of twists and turns, with a little romance.
I would recommend this book to anyone.
