    "It's ok"

    Audio books depend on the quality of the narrator. This narrator is OK. He doesn't have great range. Men and female characters
    sound the same and his accent need work.

    "hard to keep up"

    fairly good book. just to many characters to keep up with. it was a struggle to get through the middle portion. however am a fan of davenport so I'll keep moving through the series.

    "Decent story"

    The book isn't bad but not great. The passion segments of the book were just not good and way to much of it. Lilly's voice was just horrible the narrator could have done a lot better

    "not as amazing as the first book."

    still it was engaging. i probably needed more depth. Lucas Davenport seemed a little unrealistic even though the writer explores more of his personality.

    "Narrator, not actor."

    Would've preferred the narrator acted a bit more instead of just reading it. I think I would've been more engaged in the story had the narrator actually put some life into the characters other than that it's a solid thriller.

    Story
    "His fans will like it"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really, it was pretty much more of the same. It was frustrating in several ways. One of the main characters through the book was a man named Shadow Love, the name ruined the flow for me. I know Indian names and anything else would have been better, it distracted me every time Lucas used it and in one chapter he must have said it thirty times.


    Would you ever listen to anything by John Sandford again?

    Possibly, the subject or premise would have to be enticing.


    What three words best describe Richard Ferrone’s performance?

    He is perfect for the character Lucas. I would seek him out.


    Did Shadow Prey inspire you to do anything?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    His love affairs were irritating too. I am sure the scenarios happen everyday but...............

    Story
    "Not a hero I can believe in"

    This genre has a hero, the cop who you want to believe in, whom you want to succeed. If the "hero" is a scumbag, it's hard to enjoy the book. This "hero" attempts to convince a married woman to cheat on her perfectly innocent and believably loyal husband. When she resists multiple times, he keeps at it. I personally don't find that to be a great character trait and it basically killed any affinity I would have for the "hero" or the story. I will not be purchasing Any subsequent books in this series.

    Story
    "Too Wordy"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who wants to be bored to death. Too wordy, has a very slow pace.


    What could John Sandford have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Shorten the story so it does not drag. Good story but pace too slow.


    What three words best describe Richard Ferrone’s voice?

    Very good voice and good vocal variety


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None I can think of., Sorry

    Story
    "Okay, but unnecessary events."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Basic story okay, but unnecessary language and sex scenes, had nothing to do to keep the story going.


    Would you recommend Shadow Prey to your friends? Why or why not?

    See above, same question.

    Story
    "3 Stars What Happened?"

    I loved John Sandford's first book in the Prey Series "Rules of Prey". Classic, well written crime drama - a rogue cop who bends a lot of rules but ultimately gets the job done. Shadow Prey follows the same formula, but I found this story to be a snooze-fest and thus never got "gripped". I'll try the 3rd in the series; depending on my reaction I'll be in for #4 or out the door with Sandford.
