Absolutely. This was only my second JK book. I started with When the Bough Breaks and plan on listening to the entire series. I really enjoy Adams' narrations.
Nah. It was pretty rough, content wise, but I feel that makes books more interesting. It's a psychological thriller - I am not expecting to read about regular old murder.
He has a great pace in story telling. He isn't overly dramatic, yet he still gets the inflection for each character just right.
The reason I rated this one so low, is because Kellerman doesn't explain enough. When listening, I kept rewinding or going back a chapter because I thought I had missed pieces of the puzzle. All of a sudden Delaware is making proclamations that are out of left field. It was so choppy that I actually thought I had purchased the abridged version. In any thriller/mystery, especially psychological, I want time to think about what may be happening - I appreciated this in When the Bough Breaks - each step was logical and tied together. In Blood Test, it felt as though Kellerman wasn't able to generate the story to lead-up to his conclusion, so he throws it all together in a monologue in the next-to-last chapter. I was riding in my car completely baffled and confused, truly feeling as though I skipped to the second part of the book.
Galbraith does an excellent job in making you think. He takes you 3/4 way to the conclusion the characters are making, but he makes you put some of the pieces together. I thought it was clever and original.
Not on the edge of my seat. But it did keep me off my pillow because it was so interesting.
His inflection was spot-on. I don't think I would have truly been able to appreciate the characters as much without an actual voice.
I laughed many times. The characters are so original.
Excellent book. Hope to see more adventures of Cormoran Strike.
