This was a little too cute for me. I just couldn't get in sync with the main character. But it wasn't bad. I just didn't think it was all that great, either.
A dog and a murder mystery ...what more can you ask for? Sit back and enjoy a good tale, told ever so well.
The Andy Carpenter Series are wonderful and this one holds up it's end of the bargain.
I read this book first and then went back and read the earlier books by Mr. Rosenfelt. It was a wonderful introduction to a great character: Andy Carpenter. His biting wit and intelligent writing brings you along for the ride. Grover Gardner is equal to the task. As soon as I finished this book--I bought all the others and didn't listen to anything else until I had finished. It doesn't aim to be great literature but to tell a good story. I loved it.
This is a nice book to listen to and was quite funny. Andy has a quick wit which sometimes makes you laugh out loud. very well read and an enjoyable break from serious books.
I found the narrator easy to listen too first of all, so that was a big plus! The book itself was great. I enjoyed the humor that was sprinkled throughout the book even though it was a pretty serious subject matter. I bought it simply because it had something to do with Golden Retrievers and I own one and love them. I was disappointed when it ended only because it ended...I finished it in two days and will definitely be checking out other books by this author.
I just love this character and this dog. I've not read them in order but each book stands on its own. The main character is just that - a smart mouthed, witty guy that happens to think outside the box enough to win. His support staff are unique and refreshing. Love the series for someone that bought the first one by accident!!
I like lawyer books, especially when there's a dog involved. This is a fun story that has some twists and turns.
Grover Gardiner is a great narrator for Rosenfelt's books.
Literary graduate and published columnist turned glorified grease monkey.
This was my first Rosenfelt book. I thought it was quite fun. The characters were believable, the plot was clear and continuous. Over all it was very easy to listen to. If you like dogs and law stories, you should enjoy this. And the narrator was maticulous as always, Grover Gardner is a seasoned veteran of audiobook narration and he was perfect for the job.
Nice, easy, enjoyable read.
All Andy Carpenter series books are great and worth the listen. I have listened to all books in the series and love them all. The mix of wit, humor and drama are excellent. Just carefull when listening while working out you may laugh while lifting.
This was another great story by a very talented writer. Great story line and lots of quick come backs. I'll probably use some myself. Couldn't put it down.
