I found this book annoying on several levels. We are told of a disaster looming in Theo's life early in the book but the time taken to get to the deails of the event nearly drove me crazy. I found the narrators monotone voice nearly put me to sleep, especially bad as I was on a long drive. Finally I find books about people on a path of self destruction very irrating and the insights I got into drug induced minds wasn't for me.
Otto is a good man but something is missing in his life. It takes a road trip with a guru to open his mind to some new ideas.
The interaction between these two is quite tense at times but has some 'laugh out loud' moments and some hilarious scenes, especially the bowling alley.
This book was really entertaining and was read exceptionally well.
I enjoyed this book. It was light but managed to keep my attention. The narrator was very good. The main character is such a snob but I really enjoyed his sardonic humour and the pragmatic way he looked at new hurdles that appeared during his trail for murder.
After listening to two thirds of the story, consisting of the seduction of Maddie, I gave up and couldn't go on. If you like Romance this may be for you but I thought there may have been something more and there definitely wasn't. A huge disappointment.
I bought this book on the strength of reviews and wasn't disappointed. An historical saga, set in the fictional town of Delano Georgia, that spans 50 years and the office of three police chiefs. Racial tension and hatred are part of the everyday life of the residents of Delano, and throw into the mix the underlying threat of a serial killer.
The narrator was excellent except for his attempt at an Irish accent.
I was hooked very early in the book and thoroughly enjoyed it.
An enjoyable story that could easily be made into a movie. It's a little corny at times but that does not bother me and does not detract from a good storyline. Well narrated.
I bought this book on sale and wasn't sure what I was getting into. I was surprised that I became so involved and put this down to the main character, Jack, who you cannot dislike. I was disappointed when it finished and definitely want to hear more about Jack. The narration was perfect.
Another good Lescoart book with Dismas Hardy at the helm. Abe Glintsky is now retired from the police force but joins Dismas in the investigation.
This is an easy and enjoyable read.
I really enjoyed this book. It doesn't have the detail of a Connie Willis book but is just as entertaining. The narrator did a good job. I really looking forward to Book 2.
The Lewis Man is the second book in a trilogy and is every bit as entertaining as the first. There is no real benefit to reading them in order except for a few details but I love to follow characters. Peter Forbes is wonderful. The Isle of Lewis is definitely on my travel wish list.
This book was disappointing on several levels. Firstly the narrator was woeful with female voices. They sounded like helpless little girls instead of strong powerful women. Secondly the time the main character spent musing over moral and lifestyle issues became boring. Don"t get me wrong I like my hero to have a conscience and a good dose of humanity but I think it"s time Nathan McBride retired and changed his lifestyle.
