©2009 Richard Castle; (P)2009 Tantor
Nothing like the TV show and narrator terrible.
There are followup books to Heat Wave, however, I will not waste my credits on them cause the narrator is horrible!
The dialogue is key in the Castle books--full of fast banter and humor. This narration makes it impossible to follow; can't tell who is speaking or when it switches back to narrative.
Not in audible format.
I've never written a comment before I finished a book--but this narration is really ruining it for me.
Although I am a Castle fan the book was just okay to me. It felt too similar to the show (I guess that's what I should have expected.) But save your money and just purchase another episode of Castle.
I have two rescue dogs. One Scottish born husband. And a love of books that goes back to childhood and bookmobiles!
I so like the tv series, I had to try a book. It's ok but I think I will stick to the tv. But this is NOT the fault of the narrator.
I loved the story - but am not sure I can listen to another one with the same narrator. He is just not suited to a mystery!!
Yes- I liked the story
A different narrator
I really like Nathan Fillion; he's the reason that I watch Castle and the reason that I bought Heat Wave. His easy humor and self-deprecating grin are nowhere evident in the book. That lack turns this book into sub-par formulaic cops-and-robbers. I wasn't expecting a good deal from this made-forTV book but I got even less.
Not for me.
like to listen to audible books while working out. Light mysteries, romance, fiction. I save the intense books for my kindle!
sorry to have to say it but the narrator destroyed the experience. I could never tell who was speaking because his voice never changed. I was prepared to enjoy the story since I do enjoy the tv show and was looking for something light to listen to at the gym. Horrible, I had to keep stopping to try and figure out who was speaking! First audio book that I deleted without finishing.
His voice distracted from the story............
sorry, i was unable to finish it so I can't answer that.
first audio book in a year that I had to give up on!
I don't know, I couldn't listen to more then 60 minutes.
I would prefere to catch a stomac bug three times instead of suffering another so called performance.
I feel like I've just got robbed.

The print book, yes. The audio book, no. Johnny Heller has to be hands down the worst narrator.
In every way possible. Nasal twang with little inflection, except a tendency to make every character excessively effeminate grated against my nerves. It was almost an assault on the ears.
I will say that because I just needed something to read and nothing else was accessible I was forced to listen to the entire story. That said I did find the storyline to be intriguing. I will read more of the Heat series but only in print.
