    "Good Book"
    What made the experience of listening to 12th of Never the most enjoyable?

    Story and narration.


    What other book might you compare 12th of Never to and why?

    Can't think of one right now.


    Have you listened to any of January LaVoy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, not yet.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes.


    Any additional comments?

    There were a few parts where the background sounds drowned out the narrator, making it almost impossible to hear what was being said. Other then that, the book was riveting.

    "Not my favorite Women's Murder Club book"

    I'm not sure what has happened to this series. I blame it on the change of narrator. Carolyn McCormack was the voice of Lindsay Boxer. They changed to January LaVoy and Lindsay became whinier. I always wanted Lindsay and Joe to marry but it hasn't improved the character or the plots.
    I also agree with other reviews that there were too many plotlines running through this. Yuki's court case was too much. I like when she is involved in a case involving the other women. Yuki seems to have become the favorite character. I have never been that fond of the Lindsay/Rich partnership and I don't like where the Rich/Cindy relationship ended up.

    I get the feeling that this book was more of a result that it was time for another book rather than any thought or feeling behind it.

    "VERY Poor storyline, annoying characterizations"

    Where to start...? Ok. It sucked. I listened to the end, because I did want to know what happened, but the story was poorly drawn, EVERY ONE of the characters were written as annoyingly insipid morons. There is NO way Richie Conklin would be a real cop. He's too stupid, in this book anyway. The story arc about Lindsey's baby was gratuitous and really had no place in this book. The storyline about the professor was patently irritating. Patterson either should stop putting his name on this dreck, or hire better "Co-Authors", but we all know JP doesn't write a word of these co-written books. He just puts his name on them to sell them. I think the WMC has run it's course. Retire the force.

    Reading allows me to travel through time, to visit the world's unique and stunning places, to become somebody I am not... It is glorious.

    "I wish I could say I liked it."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I have always loved the characters of the WMC. I look forward to following their stories. But this book was not good. The story was disjointed; the character development poor. When Lindsey left her newborn baby girl alone in the hospital it infuriated me. It wasnt realistic. There were characters who moved on from broken relationships too quickly. There were few interactions between the four women. I found myself angry with Mr Patterson for letting his fans down. It seemed that he and his publisher were more worried about putting a book out "on time" than they were about writing and publishing a quality mystery book for the fans of the WMC series.


    Has 12th of Never turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. But I may leave this series. There are too many good books out there to waste my time and money on any more sub-par books.

    "MD 20/20"

    Books should be like a fine wine, getting only more complex the longer they are open, and have time to breath. My only conclusion is there must be a market for cheap wine, just like there is for poor writing. So if you are a connoisseur of cheap wine you may enjoy this swill. Shame on me for even spending my money on this, should have waited for more reviews.

    "Nice Addition to Series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of 12th of Never to be better than the print version?

    I do not know. I think I would have enjoyed reading the print version.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot kept me involved. I liked the different story lines


    Did January LaVoy do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Her voicing of Lindsay was good. I did not like Yuki's voice. The voice of one of the killers made my skin crawl. I liked Carolyn McCormick's narration better.







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

    No extreme reaction. I thought the storyline with Lindsay's baby was poignant. Lindsay is my reason for following this series. I am not really interested in the other three woman.


    Any additional comments?

    Recommended only if you have followed the whole series.

    "Pay Attention to the Previous Reviews and Comments"
    Would you try another book from James Patterson and Maxine Paetro and/or January LaVoy?

    Not sure...I have not been pleased with books that are co-authored with James Patterson. I would compare the collaboration to that of dental hygienist and a dentist. The hygienist does the most work and the doctor briefly checks the work and passes you on. This is how I perceive the Patterson-Paetro collaborations. The stories are not up to the Patterson quality. I would probably not purchase another book from James Patterson and Maxine Paetro and/or January LaVoy. I would check the book out from the library first and review it prior to making a purchase.


    Has 12th of Never turned you off from other books in this genre?

    This has not detered me from books of this genre. However, books in this particular series will be suspect.


    Have you listened to any of January LaVoy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I think this is the first narration that I have experienced from January LaVoy. In my opinion she was not bad.


    Did 12th of Never inspire you to do anything?

    absolutely nothing!!


    Any additional comments?

    Perhaps this series has run its course. What else can happen to these characters? Murder investigations are plentiful. These stories are becoming predictable and somewhat boring. With Lindsey being married and now a mother, her edge as an officer will suffer. Joe has become an accessory and "damn-it-doll" being beat up constantly. The other characters have also lost their interesting edge. Time to let these ladies move on.. and quietly disappear to literary heaven.

    "Keep them Coming!"

    This has been a great series and continues to be. I love a series with the return of key characters and the addition of new one. Love the way the characters evolve and change and grow, it's like an old friend when a new book comes out. Try these books you'll for sure like them.

    "This series gets better and better!"

    Women's Murder Club is by far my favorite James Patterson series. Patterson and Paetro write so well together. The stories of these four women continue to entertain. Five stars all the way!
