    "Just what I wanted"

    Great, full characters, mystery with unguessable twist, action all read by Barbara Rosenblat. Who could ask for more?

    "Great characters; voice doesn't match"

    The cast of characters, the detail of police and legal procedure, and the grounding of the action in specific geographies combine to create a believable world to which we readers can escape. However, the female narrator has a very deep gravelly ( smoker's?) voice which I find off-putting when she is speaking as the narrator and protagonist. Also, there was a stretch early on where she spoke so rapidly that I put the speed down to 75%. ( Note to Audible: the speed reduction doesn't work well on the iPhone). Still, I could hear the narrator's deep intakes of breath here and in other parts of the book.

    The narrator is from what I read quite a successful audio performer. So others may not be bothered by the timbre of the voice and the sound of the breathing. She is quite talented at creating different voices and accents for the supporting characters.

    "Narrator is not that bad!!"

    I really enjoyed listening to this book. The narrator is a bit irritating at first but after a while you don't even notice it. Good book, I figured out who did it early on, but I don't think it was the writing at all. It was pretty good book

    "New author for me. I like these characters."

    The author made me feel as if I were apart of the story. Down to earth story telling. Thank you. Looking forward to the next book.

    Story
    "Ruined by Rosenblad channeling Darth Vader"

    The narrator said, in an article I read (Audiogals, IIRC) that hearing the narrator's breathing is fine because narrators breathe and breathing is natural. Or words to that effect.

    Well, nothing ruins a good audiobook more than my being able to hear the narrator sucking in a breath before her sentences. Someone ought to tell Ms Rosenblad that farting is also natural. Do her listeners want to hear hers in their audiobook?

    I bought 2 Alexandra Cooper audiobooks and at times it's like listening to Darth Vader.

    "A great but seriously flawed narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to Final Jeopardy the most enjoyable?

    Fairstein's story lines and her deep knowledge of rape prosecurtions are superb in all of her novels.


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

    Certainly, at times, the action did pick up. There were periods of increased danger to the protagonist, and those were probably the most riveting. That said, the entire book...indeed, all of the Alexandra Cooper novels....are seriously plotted and they always present new information regarding the prosecution of sexual assault cases.


    What aspect of Barbara Rosenblat’s performance would you have changed?

    This applies to ALL of the Alexandra Cooper novels which Ms. Rosenblat narrates. She is outstanding with the pace of the story, and her mastery of voices, from male African Americans to Swedish victims, is incredible. HOWEVER, she has a disturbing habit of deeply swallowing. This is MOST "off-putting." I do think a skilled editing of these books would greatly improve the quality of these recordings. Perhaps Ms. Rosenblat needs more breaks to gulp water, suck cough drops or whatever?? My stomach occasionally turns at the sounds, worthy of a Dracula novel.


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Regardless of the distracting narrator sounds, I will keep listening. Excellent stories.

    "Not worth the effort"
    What disappointed you about Final Jeopardy?

    Could not stand Barbara Rosenblat's voice. She makes the character sound like an arrogant bitch. Alex Cooper is not believable. Too gifted and know it all. The charmed life is not necessary and detracts from the story.


    Has Final Jeopardy turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, just this author. I had collected all her books but am now selling them as I have no desire to read more.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Get a different reader.


    What character would you cut from Final Jeopardy?

    Alex Cooper. I really like Mike. He is real.
