Blood Hollow | [William Kent Krueger]

Blood Hollow

After 17-year-old Charlotte Kane, the beautiful, brilliant, and brooding daughter of a rich widower, disappears on a drunken New Years' Eve snowmobile ride, a raging blizzard soon snuffs out all search efforts. When her body is found during the spring thaw four months later, preliminary evidence implicates her ex-boyfriend: Ojibwe bad-boy Solemn Winter Moon. But then a second Charlotte Kane turns up dead, and Cork isn't sure of anything any more.

    Story
    "Another fine book by Krueger"
    Where does Blood Hollow rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's good, among those I would read again


    What about David Chandler’s performance did you like?

    Chandler is one of my favorite narrators although he could have a bit more range especially with the female voices.


    Any additional comments?

    I like to read this story style of book. They are what I call formula books and several authors use the same formula for instance of one were to change Cork O'Connors name to say Walt Longmire.....who would know?

    Story
    "Who dun it? Didn't see this one coming!"
    If you could sum up Blood Hollow in three words, what would they be?

    Who dun it!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The priest was a great character in this story! The pull of his calling and the pull of his love interest made a nice side story in this book.


    What about David Chandler’s performance did you like?

    He is consistently great! I listen a lot in my car as I travel long distances. After having listened to quite a few in the Cork O'Connor mystery series it's almost like David is in the riders seat reading to me as I drive.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the priest was drunk and went to the house of the one he loved and spoke the truth to her. The alcohol was his truth serum!

    "A Glossing"
    Would you listen to Blood Hollow again? Why?

    It would be unlikely that I would listen to this or any books a second time.


    Would you be willing to try another book from William Kent Krueger? Why or why not?

    Yes.


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

    The performance is okay. I was annoyed however by the change in the reader's voice style for a character that has been in all of the previous books.


    Any additional comments?

    While I enjoyed this book a great deal and would recommend it, I also felt that the author glossed over some very important details that occurred in the preceding book. Namely, the abduction of Cook's wife and son. Surely that would have created some residual emotions, especially for the son who is a sensitive child - but it was not referenced at any time in the book. Otherwise, except for the change in the voice style of a recurrent character, I really enjoyed this book!

    Story
    "Too Much Religion - Not Enough Procedural"

    I hung in there until the end of the story, but wanted to quit every time it started getting preachy and so so very spiritual. I thought this was going to be a police procedural, but I saw every turn coming before the twist because Krueger has become predictable with this one.

    The narrator, David Chandler, reads these stories, but does not act or perform them. I think I would enjoy the stories more if there were more emotion and expression.

    My opinion is that Krueger is a very capable writer. I have enjoyed his previous books, but he lost me with this story in the series. Will I try again? Yes, I will give it one more try in the future.

    "Krueger is always a good story teller"
    What made the experience of listening to Blood Hollow the most enjoyable?

    There are so many aspects of Krueger's writings that make his stories enjoyable. The characters, the story line, etc.

    Rose's willingness to help out. I just love Rose's character.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When it finally clicked in Cork's brain who dun it.

    "Love this series"

    I hope that more people give this series a chance. I am so glad that I did.

    I hate to give anything away when talking about a book, I think that the fun of reading/listening to a book is the surprise about everything that is inside the cover.

    I just know that I am so glad that I gave this series a chance...

    Would you listen to Blood Hollow again? Why?

    I wouldn't mind listening to it again, but I normally don't.

    I like all of the characters but I love the calm way Cork deals with everything.


    What does David Chandler bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I like his voice and the way he reads the book.


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

    definately


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to listen to the next one..

    Story
    "Ambivalent"

    I started with the first Cork O'Connor book and have very much enjoyed WKK's writing and his characters. This was the first one about which I have been less than enthusiastic. The characters and mystery plot were, in my opinion, hampered by the attempt to bring religion into it.

    I wasn't expecting such a leap. There had been sufficient prior mention about certain characters' beliefs to individuate the characters and their points of view. It was disappointing for him to start diving so deeply into that theme. If it continues and especially if it increases, these novels will cease to be mystery novels to me. If these turn into Cork's quest for the existence of a god, I won't read any more of them.

    "Kruger does not disappoint"

    So far this series has kept me excited and interested. His mysteries are always well written and unique. The entire O'Connor family is fully involved in the series and adds good personal interest and background for the mysteries. Cork O'Connor is an imperfect guy who makes a just right hero. Worth the credit
