this was the first time I had a desire not to finish a book... narrator sound like she had her frog in her throat when trying to do men. and as a black person kinda offended at the impersonation of the black character but this was probably more so the way it was written that made her act it out that way. not impressed at all with this book and likely won't read the series
Haven't read the print version
I have never really read criminal books. This one was pretty good.
Surprisingly, I really liked the book. I actually ran an extra mile at the end because it was a good part and I wanted to see what happened next. My only complaint is it just ended abruptly. Other than that, I liked it.
The story is weak. Character development doesn't happen. Overall, very predictable.
Platt mispronounced physical by saying psychic in one instance. Not a horrible performance, but somewhat bland.
Didn't read the book, only listened to it.
A different Narrator!
Once the trial actually began.
The friendship between Josie and her friend, but mostly how she wanted to help the girl
I really wasn't on the edge of my seat, but it did keep my interest
worth the credit
This book was offered as a special, so I bought it after reading the reviews. It is just as many people said. I couldn't keep up! The narrator is in hyper-speed! I slowed this thing down to .75 (that's point 75) on my i-phone, and other than a bit of distortion it was PERFECT :) The story was great. After all of the complaints about the narrator, I am surprised that the same person was chosen for the second book in the series. Try it, but slow it down.
I would think about it. I am not sure if it was as much of the writing as the reading of this book so I might try again.
Not a surprise, I could see it coming.
No, her use of voices was not good, it was annoying. Her characters would change voices in the middle of a conversation. The voices were not believable they just sounded goofy.
This was really hard to listen to. I didn't like the way time moved in the book. There would be an unknown gap of time with no warning. All of a sudden time would lapse and I'd have no idea what happened. There were a couple of big climaxes at the end that was skipped and then it's the next day.
I almost didn't finish listening. The book started out interesting, and I thought it had something going for it, but the characters stayed flat.
Strange long pauses at inappropriate times and no pauses when they were needed, like at the end of one character's actions before beginning the next segment. Sometimes it took a second or two to realize the subject had changed. She seemed to be in a verbal race.
