I was bored and I didn't get the point. His life is interesting to a point, but not enough to write a book about. And his narration is very monotone and hard to listen to after a while. I wouldn't use a credit on this one.
I really enjoyed this story, the performance, and the characters. The "murder mystery" wasn't cliche and was very current. I loved the characters of Strike and....damn. All of a sudden I forgot the name of his secretary. They were very likeable in their struggles, their strengths, and weaknesses. The reader was also great. I would love if this became a series!
Where to begin???
I just read about 5 bad reviews and I can't say it better myself, so just read through all the bad reviews on here....I can say that I was disgusted by the main character and Christian. It was unrealistic, the dialogue was horrible, and just generally pissed me off!
I love a long book, but this one was kind of ridiculously long. It must be like 1200 printed pages. I also like a weird book, but this was weird in a bad way- creepy sexual things going on with underage girls, etc. It never explained a lot of what it rambled on about in the end....like a mystery with out a conclusion. Not sure what the point was of this book or all the hype about it. At least I was entertained enough to finish it. I also enjoyed the narrators, especially the men. Won't listen or read another book by this author, though.
Where do I start??
Stated above.....narration, slightly interesting story.
This biography is so amazing to me...I could not stop listening. A Jewish experience during WWII, but not gruesome. Definitely worth a credit.
This should be required high school reading. A great first hand account of the war experiences in Iraq just a few short years ago. Highly recommmend.
I have listened to a couple of these Dave Robicheaux (sp?) novels and I really enjoyed this one. The story is interesting and I kept wanting to know what happens. I like how many of the characters and not "good" or "bad" but are conflicted and have both good and quailites about them. I love how the author paints a vivid picture of the area, the landscape, the food, and the culture of New Orleans and the surrounding areas. Makes me want to visit!
I think Janet Evanovich is so funny and I really liked Metro Girl, the precursor to this book, but this one was just OK. It kept me interested and had some funny parts, but nothing great. If you are a fan of Evanovich, worth a listen. CJ Critt is a great narrator as well.
