This story line was all over the place, didn't help that the narrator didn't have any pauses when switching from characters/scenes. Half the time I didn't realize it was a different scene w/different characters til a minute or 2 after hearing it. On top of that she screamed everything & everyone sounded angry at all times. It was incredibly hard to get into this book. By the end I just wanted it to hurry up and be over. I'm not even sure who the "murderer" they were talking about throughout the whole book was when they finally had the reveal, that's how indifferent I had become.
Complete disappointment in this book.
I'd recommend most Karin Slaughter books but probably not this audio version.
IDK who specific narrators are but this one was awful!
The story was a typical Will Trent story, I wish the stories didn't always tie directly into the main characters lives. Is the town they live in really so small that every single crime revolves around one of the main characters? I also wish they would quit retelling how each character met, the personal issues [dyslexia, diabetes, death of Sarah's husband], etc. Then, this narrator had my teeth grinding the entire time. I have tried & stopped listening to this book about 5 times now. Finally I just decided to grit my teeth & get through it. Her accents & voices for the characters is irritating, she sounds like she has been running a marathon before she started reading b/c she is always out of breath & the dictation of some of her words is also nerve grinding. Other than the narrator the story was alright.
The narrators were fine
This book was unrelatable & unbelievable. I don't know the reason for it but I could not connect with the characters at all. I didn't feel that there was any love between the main characters, when Kyle dies I didn't feel any pain for the loss & when she jumps right into things with his brother at his funeral.. I couldn't help but roll my eyes. I didn't finish this book because I couldn't connect with any of the characters. The initial love scene took way to long & I didn't feel like there was even any real love between them. I was highly disappointed in this book. Maybe someday I'll get around to finishing it but I doubt it.
Michael Beck's performance was awesome. Loved all the voices he did & it was like listening to a movie, I even forgot it was a man at times when he did the women's voices.
This book was decent, it dragged on at some points & the reason the man left his money to the maid didn't come as a shock to me, overall though the story was entertaining enough. Also liked the fact the town I live in got a little shout out in the book.
I thought the story was very entertaining. It wasn't dull, it wasn't unbelievable, & it was pretty quick paced.
I thought this book was well written, it wasn't an edge of your seat kind of book but it was still very enjoyable.
I'm pretty new to the whole audio book thing so it has taken some getting used to. I thought this narrator was really good except when she did the voice of Brooks, I could never get into his character as a good guy so I always thought he was kind of creepy & I've read a lot of Tami Hoag & I usually love her romances that mix into the book but this time around I couldn't get into it & I'm pretty sure it was b/c of the delivery of his voice/character by the narrator.
