    Story
    "Glad I didn't skip this one!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of All That Remains to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of All That Remains?

    Serious character development of peripheral characters- some cute Moreno moments.


    What does C. J. Critt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I enjoy her reading if Moreno and his New York accent.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm so glad I didn't let other reviews sway me from purchasing this book. I'm going through the Scarpetta series for the first time and other readers had me worried. I have no idea what they were talking about! This story is smart, twisty, and dark like the pervious Kay novels.

    Abby Turnbull returns. Additionally, we learn a lot more about Moreno and Wesley in this installment.I enjoyed the whole story and it definitely kept me listening, waiting to see whodunit.

    For anyone reading the whole series, I can't imagine not including this book in the lineup! Worth the listen.

    "Good Read"

    Fun read...Kay Scarpetta, our heroine, hangs in there against entrenched bureaucracy and Washington DC favorite political appointees. But, her relationships go nowhere. Nobody reviews Pete Marino; in this book, she remakes him into a decent human being from a slob. One wonders if Cornwell knows somebody like that and does a virtual redo. Page turner that does not lag or sag. Show me the next book!

    "SCARPETTA BOOK AT IT'S BEST"

    This book was very good, but then all the Scarpetta novels are good. They all have such twists and turns. Sometimes I do wonder though, about how all these weirdos get to her! ;o)

    Story
    "I always enjoy Kay Scarpetta and this no exception"
    What did you love best about All That Remains?

    This was one of the earlier of the Kay series and it was one that I had not read so I enjoyed how the story developed and I felt like an observer watching the development of not only solving the case, but in the shifting each character's personal life.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The strategy and the plot and development of the case


    Have you listened to any of C. J. Critt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first time listening to C.J. , it took me about ten minutes into the story and then I was used to her voice and it seem to fit very well.


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

    There was a lot of emotion in this book, not enough humor, but not sure if it was needed. I was guessing throughout trying to figure the case and the life of the characters and the ending left me wanting to go to the next book.


    Any additional comments?

    I always enjoy Patrica Cornwell's books, she is complicated but yet puts it all so simple and smooth. I even like the way she takes the time to describe the scenery, the weather, the color of hair, clothes, all the small but important details that bring the story to life.

    "Old book"
    Would you try another book from Patricia Cornwell and/or C. J. Critt?

    This might be ok but it is an old book and is irrelevant by today's standards

    Story
    "Diggin' the Scarpetta series"
    Where does All That Remains rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In my top five for sure.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like that the storyline was simple and easy to follow.


    Which character – as performed by C. J. Critt – was your favorite?

    I just like her narration in general.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this to anyone into mystery and detective novels. It has a similar feel to the Patterson Women's Murder Club series, which I loved!

    "Great as always!"
    What did you love best about All That Remains?

    I love this author. I have readand listened to lots of her books. I haven't listened to them in ordered of date published but it hasn't mattered. It's interesing to hear about characters iin the earlier books and learn how/why they've evolved as they have!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Suspense!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I have actually gone to the internet while reading/listening to a Scarpetta novel and looking things! I've learned lots!

    Story
    "language"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The story was ok but seemed to drag a little bit. This could be because there were multiple books in the series and this is the only one I listened to. I was a bit turned off by the bad language. It just seemed pointless to me. I would rather have some kind of warning that the author has such a small vocabulary that they can't write a book without the use of fowl language.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Patricia Cornwell? Why or why not?

    No.

    Story
    "Not The Best Scarpetta"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The book kind of dragged on and on.


    If you’ve listened to books by Patricia Cornwell before, how does this one compare?

    This book was not as interesting or exciting as previous books by Patricia Cornwell.


    Did C. J. Critt do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I think the only saving grace of this book was C.J. Critt. She always does a great job. She does differentiate the characters well. I also enjoy her narrations in the Stephanie Plum books.


    Did All That Remains inspire you to do anything?

    Not really. I'll look at other reviews before purchasing.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a sale book at $4.95...I'm wondering if it was on sale because it didn't do too well at the regular price.

    "Wrong reader for me."

    I did not remember that I had read this book when it was first published, long before I discovered audiobooks. The reader, C J Critt, is an excellent reader, but I am so familiar with her from her outstanding work on Janet Evanovich's books, that the voices just do not work for me on this murder mystery. I stopped listening on disc 1. Listen to a sample first before buying.
    As I remember the book and plot, it's pretty good, from when the Scarpetta series was still fresh and good.
