"Best-seller Rose concludes her thriller trilogy that began with Scream for Me and Die for Me with a bang....Rose juggles a large cast, a huge body count and a complex plot with terrifying ease. The sweet romance between Luke and Susannah provides welcome relief from the many scenes of brutality." (Publishers Weekly)
I believe a reviewer should finish a book before submitting a review. What do you think?
I only finished this book because I purchased it in a 3 books for 2 credits promotion, and since this was the third book I chose, I wanted my $ worth, and well.... I hate to be a quitter.
We all know, you often get what you pay for.
As others have mentioned, this reader is beyond horrible, her male voices are so funny sounding that it is difficult to focus on the poorly developed story line.
The "sexy, strong, romantic" leading man sounds just like Granny Clampett from the Beverly Hillbillies. This is something I just could not get used to.
In addition, this storyline was weak like the characters, which were far too many in number to bother tracking.
This book was beyond horrible! Wait.... can I give it a 0 star rating instead?
I PURCHASED THIS BASED ON PREVIOUS REVIEWS. WHEN I BEGAN TO LISTEN TO IT I FELT LIKE I HAD NOT DOWNLOADED THE BEGINING OF THE BOOK. THIS BOOK IS THE 3RD IN A SERIES. TO FULLY UNDERSTAND AND ENJOY THE STORYLINE YOU MUST READ THE 2CD BOOK IN THE SERIES "SCREAM FOR ME". THIS BOOK SHOULD BE TITLED "SCREAM FOR ME THE CONCLUSION". AFTER DOWNLOADING THIS AND FEELING CONFUSED. I WENT BACK AND READ THE DESCRIPTION AND REVIEWS AGAIN. I THEN PURCHASED "SCREAM" AND LISTENED TO IT FIRST, THEN LISTENED TO THIS BOOK. IT MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE. I WOULD NOT HAVE UNDERSTOOD "KILL FOR ME" AND WOULD HAVE FELT LIKE THE STORY WAS INCOMPLETE IN THE "SCREAM FOR ME" BOOK IF I HADN'T READ BOTH BOOKS. THEY ARE 2 PARTS OF THE SAME PLOT. THESE 2 BOOKS SHOULD BE READ BACK TO BACK. IF YOU WANT TO GET REALLY INVESTED READ THE 1ST BOOK. THIS WAS A GOOD STORY, A LITTLE TOO VIOLENT AND CONVOLUTED AT TIMES BUT OVERALL WORTH THE 2 CREDITS (BOTH BOOKS), FOR A 30 HOUR THRILLER . I WOULD GIVE IT A 3.75
The story itself is entertaining, though sometimes predictible. I found myself struggling to get involved with the characters because of the narration. I couldn't tell the male charactors apart - and they sounded like little old ladies with a poor southern accent. Why the narrator didn't make an attempt to add some baritone to the effort is puzzling. It took effort to finish the book, but I needed to know the end.
I read the first two books in this series and wished that I had read this one instead of listening to it. There were too many characters to keep up with on tape,especially since the reader did such a poor job with the voices. Her Southern dialect was horrible.
I don't reading about stories of rape they distrub me and this one was a very dark one. Even though it happened a long time ago It still bothered me.
I had just finished Scream For Me and knew who the mastermind was.Even though, it never gave any of it away the narrator kept the voices idential as the first book, which is a real talent in my mind, that gave it away. KR still had a lot of plot twists that made up for it.
She did a great job, like I said she kept the voices the same as in the first book, which did irk me some because I hated Luke's voice. He sounded too whiny for me.
Again it would have been a great book except for the dark rapes. I knew about them because of the previous book so it wasn't a complete shock, but really wished I'd skipped this one.
Awful, awful narration
I could barely make it through because of the voice of the male lead. Sounded like a whiny old man.
This is the first review I've been moved to write. I would have turned the book back in if I wasn't invested through the first two books. I should have paid more attention to other reviews. Argh!
Albeit a character heavy storyline that relied HEAVILY on the previous book in the series, I give the story 3.5 stars. What really destroyed this story for me was the awful narration. The female voices were interpreted wonderfully, but the male voices were atrocious. I'm a native southerner and I cannot understand why the male roles were so high pitched, tinny, poorly accented, and whinny. What possesed the narrator? How could she have listened to this and thought "job well done". I'll never purchase a book read by this narrator again.
Once I got over the narrator's voice choice for one of the main male characters, I really enjoyed this book. Has all the elements of a great story
It was impossible to enjoy this book because of the reader. Her female voices were okay .. but all her males sounded like pre-adolescents .. and everyone whined. The story went a bit long and there was an interminable list of characters and that it was much easy to get confused. Some of the "twists" in the plot were reminiscent of a very inexperienced writer .. or one who doesn't think her readers have ever heard a good book. I don't think this book recommends this author or narrator if you "read" a lot of good books.
