"Grafton has created a woman we feel we know, a tough cookie with a soft center, a gregarious loner....Smart, well-paced and very funny." (Newsweek)
I would probably have been kinder on my rating of this book had the narration not been so unbelievably boring .
I read most of this series years ago and thought I go through them again. I couldn't finish. The narrator was not good. There is no inflection or passion to her reading. It was read like a news report.
Yes but not by this narrator.
If the narrator paused or put some excitment into her reading, it would help.
It was hard to follow.
I will pick up the later Sue Grafton books with a different narrator.
I liked Knitting Yarns much better
This is fast moving, and fun to read but will not "change" you as really great literature can. Still, sometimes we all need a little fluff.
Needs better distinction in the reading between characters, sometimes I had no idea who was talking!
Very disappointing, I thought it would have been better after reading the reviews. Predictable and not very well read.
Sometimes the details dragged on and I got lost in why they were needed. Seriously, I do not care what street the charactor drove on to get to Reno!
The story was interesting, but the performance was mediocre. Several times I had no idea which character was speaking.
I used to read Sue Grafton's A-Z books several years ago and always enjoyed them. I have really been enjoying audible books, so I thought I would try the first one, since it had been so long since I read it the first time. All I can say from here is that the narration ruined the book. I'll go back to reading if this narrator does any more.
The book is almost finished and I finally got happy because something was finally happening. Giving more beef early on.
Getting to the point early and less setup would make this a better listen.
I am not sure. This was my first listen from this author and I am afraid to continue on to "B".
I was disappointed - I wanted to be hanging at the edge of my seat with each chapter.
No - I think I will return this and get something else. I would not have used a token or paid money for this audio book.
My mom taught me to read when i was 3 and i've been reading ever since. I LOVE to read and now 'listen' to books.
I just love Kinsey
Kinsey in the trash can
Easy to listen to
Would love to do that with any of her books, time permitting. Really wish her early books were as long as her later ones
I'm hoping to get ALL of the Alphabet Series (that is if Miss G ever COMPLETES it!!) I have all of them in hardbacks (to 'W' so far) and I can't wait to have all of them in audiobooks ... Then on my iPad!!! Whoooo hoooo!!!!
