I would recommend this as a fun read, interesting, a bit risqué on occasion but not in an offensive way -- just all around fun!
Addision - personality and southern gentility in manner of speaking if not in thinking. :)
The narrator includes several long pauses and basically the performance comes across as a job more than someone who understood and naturally read the book. I thought the pauses may have been a poor editing job but they continued throughout.
It's a decent story though is my first of the series. I have no idea how/why the gangster remains a hero throughout, but if the same narrator reads the other books it's probably the last of them that I purchase.
No. There are so many good authors who write multidimensional stories that offer more humor and passion and emotion and even a bit of reality (well, it IS fiction). I hadn't read any of these previously but the reviews were good. I was disappointed first w/ the performance and then with the drawn out and very predictable text.
Add some dimension. Couple meets, couple EVENTUALLY spends a night together, one declares love, then harsh words that seem like reality vs. the pretend world they've lived in til the harsh words, then they both stop speaking to one another. Oh, and often the primary male and female character thinks to him/herself that the other is the most beautiful person in the world. Of course, cause at several hours in they've spent 48 hours together.
Too monotone, inflections change slightly but not effectively, especially for the primary male character. I'd guess she's from a northern state as she has a way of sliding her words into the ....-er ending. To me it seems she reads but lacks emotion that would indicate she is a fan of the book or the characters.
No. I prefer unedited versions but it's clear that the edited version may be a bit better here. Too often I was wanting to hurry things along, ok, ok, we get it, she's the most beautiful woman in the world and you're lucky to be w/ her (true reflection of the words). I bought two of the series, #2 and #7 and at this point I can't bear the thought of listening to #7.
Apologies for the negative review.
The different narrators are good and useful.
The characters and their sociopathic characters.
