    "Not bad - but not her best"

    I do love to hear Victor Slezak read Sandra Brown books so it was a fine way to spend a rainy afternoon. It is not in the same league with many of her other books though.

    "Unexpected twists"

    Not great...but not bad.....many, many twists....the plot was slow to evolve and the "villains", and there were many......were at times difficult to identify....a no thinking required book.....
    Just O.K.

    "Good but not Great"
    Where does Hello, Darkness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I enjoyed listening to this Sandra Brown romance mystery. It was not overly erotic and had a good story line. It was not as good as Brown's Envy or other similarly themed books but was still enjoyable.


    Have you listened to any of Victor Slezak’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I like Victor Slezak as a narrator. He does a good job of telling the story without sounding phony or down right weird by trying to imitate women's voices.

    "Good book, great narration."

    Good but not as good as Envy or Alibi. Still good though and the narrator does a great job.
