What the Critics Say

"A strong debut that will have readers dying for more." (Booklist)
"Harris delivers a knuckle-gnawing tale populated with well-developed, albeit edgy characters. A nifty puzzle toward the end will challenge the most jaded mystery buffs." (Publishers Weekly)

    The idea of being hit by lightening and then having extra senses is an interesting concept

    "Charlaine Harris can do better"

    I bought "Grave Sight because it was on sale and I am a huge fan of Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mysteries. I found Grave Sight to be rather ordinary and predictable. Grave Sight is like an old fashioned detective story with the twist being that the main character can find dead people and she can see how they died. I will not go as far as saying it is bad but it is kind of hard to believe the same person wrote the Sookie Stackhouse books. The number one reason I buy books from Audible is to be entertained.I do not think I will buy any more of the Harper Connelly Mysteries.

    "another horribly edited book"

    I love this author and thought this was an interesting story. However, I did not care for the flat monotone that this narrator used. Much worse, I can NOT STAND the "mouth noises" heard throughout. I have listened to plenty of books on which I could not hear swallowing, burping, and lip smacking. Therefore, I have to conclude that any audible noises are due to a lack of good editing. It is enough to ruin what could have been an enjoyable listen. Glad I only paid $4.95 for this....

    "Great stories"

    I am virtually a new audiobook listener, but I don't have the time to pick up a book and read it. I really enjoyed this book, it had intrigue, suspense and all around good to listen to and still be on the edge of your seat. I love the stories Charlene Harris puts out and hope she never stops. I enjoyed the Sookie Stackhouse series and wish there were more to come. Can't get enough.

    "enjoyed very much"
    Where does Grave Sight rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the most enjoyable books I have ever listened to, a fun storyline and the performer was great with distinguishing voices and emotions.

    "Interesting Story...Narration, Meh."

    The premise and characters of this story really are engageing. I want to be pulled in, but the narration is off putting. There isn't any doubt in my mind that the narrator is talanted, but her voice is all wrong for the main character (a 24-year-old woman). Too mature and somehow lacking emotion.

    I have listened to the first two books in this story and continue to hold the same opinion. However, I do plan on finishing the four book series because, like I said, the story is good. If I had more free time I'd just "read" this series, but I love audiobooks, and my two-year-old won't stand for her mommy lying around looking "idle".

    Overall, if your like me and your busy life won't allow you to park your keister on the couch and enjoy a good book I'd give this series a shot on audio, rather than pass it over.

    "Great listen!"

    I enjoyed this book - they kept the story moving and it was entertaining. I also liked how there was an implied romantic love between the step siblings but never addressed directly by the author or the characters. I liked it because it's just something different then you'd expect to find. I found this book entertaining and I plan to listen to the whole series.

    Story
    "Good but not great"

    I liked the premise of the book (a woman who was struck by lightning and now can sense the presence of dead bodies and know how they died) and found the characters interesting but the "mystery" was too predictable. I enjoy mysteries and know I'm not really good at solving them, so it was a bit frustrating when I had the "whodunnit" figured out around the middle of the story while the main character (who is supposed to posses a considerable intelligence) is still befuddled until the end.

    "Sounding Like A Broken Record..."

    No Sookie Stackhouse, that's for sure. Also, like most of the other reviewers, I am a huge fan of Charlaine Harris and of Sookie, and although I didn't need this series to be the same universe, I found it very dry and rather dull.

    The main character seems to be nothing particularly special in her self or her "gift". It became slightly annoying when she wouldn't eat, wouldn't sleep and just basically wanted away from any trouble whatsoever. Kind of boring. The narrator did little to bring her to life. And the plot just plodded along with lots and lots of rumination on whodunit. And when we find out whodunit, it's a dud.

    So happy the new Sookie Stackhouse is out....
