    "Not my favorite, but still likeable"
    What did you love best about A Fever in the Heart: And Other True Cases?

    Ann Rule always writes awesome books, and I love her True Crime Files books.


    Would you recommend A Fever in the Heart: And Other True Cases to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this book to my friends who aren't put off by graphic details. However, the first story about Morris Blankenbaker was a little long.


    Which character – as performed by Laural Merlington – was your favorite?

    Well, heres the thing. I could have used a different narrartor. Here characterization of the male players in the book was off-putting, and because most of the players in this book were male, it was slightly annoying.

    "Not up to par for this author"

    The stories in this book are from the 1970's, the author wrote them but did not publish them until recently. Very slow & loaded with unimportant details. The narrator voices the individual characters very well. Unfortunately, I've listened to two other books in this series, her voice has become repetitive. Overall I would not recommend this Ann Rule Book, not nearly as good as her other novels.

    Story
    "SOME CASES I LIKED OTHERS I DID NOT"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I PREFER ONE CASE PER BOOK. PREFERABLE WITH FAMILY DYNAMICS. AND THE MOTIVE IS GREED, SEX, OR JEALOUSY. THE LAST CASE WAS NOT INTERESTING AT ALL.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    NONE


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    CLEAR READING. BUT I HAVE BECOME SPOILED BY SOME READERS WHO ARE REALLY GREAT. OF COURSE THIS IS TRUE CRIME SO I GUESS IT WAS READ CLRRECTLY


    Could you see A Fever in the Heart: And Other True Cases being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    YES. THERE SHOULD BE A NARATOR. NO STARS. LIKE SNAPPED OR DATELINE.


    Any additional comments?

    I WISH ANN RULE WOULD DO AND UNABRIDGED VERSION OF IF YOU REALLY LOVED ME.
