    "Prefer narrator who performed the abridged version"
    What made the experience of listening to The Negotiator the most enjoyable?

    Story line.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Author did a good job in bringing in the other family members which made me look forward to the other books in the series.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Need a narrator who can distinguish the characters. Dave is british however if the story didn't say this you wouldn't know. Was difficult to distinguish which character was speaking.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Negotiator and why?

    Kate


    Any additional comments?

    I had listened to the abridged version and loved the narrator Matilda Novak but wanted to listen to the unabridged version. Was disappointed that the sound effects and Matilda Novak did not perform the unabridged version.

    Story
    "I wanted to like it"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    It depends...if they like "inspirational" novels, then sure. I didn't see the indicators that should have alerted me to the fact that this story is very, very preachy. The non-religious bits were VERY good. Dee Henderson's characters are credible in their roles as police officers. The religious bits were jarring ... they didn't seem to fit the rest of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    The listing in Audible didn't clearly identify this book as Christian or Religious fiction. I wish I had known. I'm not sure I'd have bought it. I don't think I'll buy any other books by Dee Henderson.

    "Great Series"
    What did you love best about The Negotiator?

    The Negotiator is probably one of the better books in the series. It's full of action and suspense, and that's what I loved best about this book.


    What other book might you compare The Negotiator to and why?

    Lately, I've been listening to a lot of suspense novels. Two recent novels come to mind, Indefensible by Pamela Callow and A Case of Redemption by Adam Mitzer. Both full of action and suspense, without the religious theme.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The opening bank hostage scene was my favorite. One thing I can say about Dee Henderson, her opening scenes are always good. The novels may drag in the middle, but the beginning and endings are always good.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Kate O'Malley was hilarious. I found myself laughing at this character often.
