    "Boy did I learn a lesson"
    What disappointed you about Cherry Bomb?

    First of all never get multiple titles by the same author you've never read before.
    I did this with Konrath, at sale price fortunately. As my buying history shows I'm not a prude with my listening. However this book was completely obsessed with sex to the point of total boredom. EVERYTHING was viewed with sex colored glasses. Of the hundreds of books I've listened to this was one of the 3 or 4 I just put down, it was just that boring and useless.


    Would you ever listen to anything by J. A. Konrath again?

    Not even the other two in my library.


    What didn’t you like about Susie Breck and Dick Hill ’s performance?

    I won't say anything negative about Breck's performance, I'm sure she does well with better material. Dick Hill doesn't need any critique, he is THE voice. Even with this piece his range and inflection was, as always, spot on.

    "Love the series"

    I think the entire Jack Daniels series is great. Good mix of mystery, thriller, and comedy. I don't think I could actually bring myself to read the book because the acting (not reading) of this series by Susie Breck and Dick Hill I think enhance the books tremendously. Their accents are spot on and Dick Hill's characters are hilarious. Good material is important (and Konrath delivers), but jokes delivered badly don't work. But Breck/Hill have impeccable comic timing and I often find myself laughing out loud (thus, I recommend you not listen to this in public, unless you want strange stares from people). If some graphic language and sex descriptions bother you, you might want to pass on this (i.e., not one to play in the car with the kids). I hope the editor whips Konrath to crank out the next in the series.

    "TOO much sex..became unreal"
    Would you try another book from J. A. Konrath and/or Susie Breck and Dick Hill ?

    I would be hesitant to try another book...although Breck and Hill were very good.


    Would you be willing to try another book from J. A. Konrath? Why or why not?

    Again I would be hesitant I think the plot was lost with so many sex scenes.


    Which character – as performed by Susie Breck and Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    Jack Daniels she was determined and in the end did a self-evaluation.


    Did Cherry Bomb inspire you to do anything?

    NO!


    Any additional comments?

    I'll wait for more reviews before I purchased another J.A. Konrath.

    "Narrators are terrific!"

    I like the Konrath books (all of them), but I especially like Dick Hill and Susie Breck as narrators. Don't read this book--LISTEN to it. And start with Whiskey Sour if you haven't read any yet.

    Story
    "Predictable, repetitive and boring"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I'd like to see unexpected twists and turns that are reasonable. The ending and all the killings were so uneventful. I could see them a mile away and they were uninteresting.


    Has Cherry Bomb turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No completely, but I have not bought more crime stories.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes, it was adequate and did not interfere with the comprehension.


    What character would you cut from Cherry Bomb?

    The serial killer Alex because she was too unbelievable. So other villain would have been better.


    Any additional comments?

    Even the ending was lame and apparent.

    I am a college professor and professional actor, director and playwright. The peformance of the book is as important to me as the writing.

    "awful- forced, gratuitous"
    Would you ever listen to anything by J. A. Konrath again?

    I have enjoyed JA Konrath but with this one- the self conscious sex scenes were a real turn off. And the violence has become so wearying. I am off Konrath after this

    Story
    "Glowing reviews a mystery"
    Would you try another book from J. A. Konrath and/or Susie Breck and Dick Hill ?

    Not from J. A. Konrath. Breck and Hill are talented.


    Any additional comments?

    The book (and series) had so many glowing reviews, thought we would give Cherry Bomb a try. This genre is a guilty pleasure on a road trip so we've both read and listened to a wide range of authors in this category. Both the sex and violence felt gratuitous - gruesome for pure shock value. Maybe if we had started at the beginning of the series and been invested in the main character we might have forgiven the problems in the story and the unpleasantness, but I doubt it.

    "Jd continues her fun"
    Where does Cherry Bomb rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love the entire series thus far. Cherry Bomb fits right in with all of the characters returning to add to the fun.


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

    Konrath is very good. He always keeps ahead of you by a step or two.


    Have you listened to any of Susie Breck and Dick Hill ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. I love their work. Truely part of the series at this point.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    expect the unexpected
