i've seen all the iceman interviews on HBO - super fascinated by this guy, however this book...seriously!?
they have a scene where richard is describing torturing some guy who he thinks gave up info on where a truck of goods was stored. per the book he burned the guys foot until they saw bone - the tortured guy denies everything...then they move onto his testicles - they get destroyed STILL NOTHING but all of a sudden when they head towards his penis, then this guy gives it up?! i don't buy it for a second.
Anyhow - for me, this seemed like a complete exaggeration of his life and crimes.
there is good YA and there is bad YA. this is pretty bad. the prose was overblown, the central idea that love is outlawed by the government and why it was so needed never made sense and the plot just prodded along so slowly. i found the heroine super annoying and kept wanting hanna to be the lead. narrator was fine, didn't add anything to help the story but didn't make anything worse. so not worth the credit.
I think this is a trilogy but i really loved this book. Books 2 and 3 are in my wish list. Fully wort the credit.
Even with Roberts amazing narration this book left me cold. I didn't care about either of the leads and that's never happened for me so far in this series. I really hope the next book out isn't a disappointment. not worth the credit.
This is a case where the narrator makes the story even better than the stand alone book. I love how Khristine makes the world of Jane Yellowrock comes alive. Lots of yummy leo.
narrator was good but this isn't worth a full price credit. if you want it, wait for it to go on sale.
i remember enjoying the book years ago and got the audio version on sale. I cannot finish it. Too repetitive and slow moving.
super YA and overblown/overdone but i loved it anyhow. I think the narrator helps a TON and keeps the story moving along.
I'm revisiting all the pendergast books via audio books and i'm on #2. Narrator is only okay but the story is exciting and spooky.
Robert Petkoff nails the narration again. He makes the stories better to listen to then read...though i do both :) and that's saying a lot. Carrow is super funny and sassy and a little trashy. Worth the credit.
this is one of my favorite Kleypas books - i just love Lillian. She a little loud, a little tough and has her own opinions. The chemistry between her and marcus is pretty hot and i cheered for them the entire time. great listen and read.
