"Well-drawn characters and a compelling story will grab readers' interest and earn Gerritsen more admirers." (Booklist)
Anna did fine with female voices but her male voices were not so good. But my biggest issue was her mispronounciation of Rizzoli throughout the entire book... there is no 't' in her last name. Can't believe no one caught that or corrected her.
I really liked the narrator; the character of Rizzoli develops and the peek into her mind is very revealing. Just when I thought I'm just going to listen to one chapter, I caught myself listening more and more. A very enjoyable book.
Daily commuter relying on Audible to keep awake. I need excitement! If something crazy doesn't happen in the first 20 mins I'm done!
I love all of Rizzoli and Isles stories. I watch them religiously on TV and have listen to every audible version I can get my hands on. This one in particular I like because It starts before Jane meets most of her closest coworkers and friends. But every time the narrator pronounced her last name as Ritz-oli instead of Rizzoli
it was like nails on a chalkboard.
I love the intro of every character....I am a huge fan of the Tv series which lead me to the book....I can't wait for the next one...🤓🤓
This book just wasn’t good enough, it has been done better! The Apprentice is a mirror with a crack, of great serial killer/frustrated police-woman/gruesome medical examiner facts-books by Patricia Cornwell, Kathy Reichs and others, who have done it much better. There isn’t much new in this book, and it is hard to feel anything for the characters. To be honest I am normally on the side of the villain but in this book the killer is just annoying. The end seemed very forced, as if she was told finish this book in under 15 min. I will repeat from my review of her last book. This series doesn’t match the TV show. That was a plus because I really like the medical examiner in the book verses the TV show. With all this being said I hope that Tess gets better because I have hope for her. I will read the next installment.
Delight in the journey and the struggle on the road to your dreams
The books are better than the show; well except for Angie Harmon. The follow up book to The Surgeon, Warren Hoyt returns to terrorize both Jane and the general populace and this time he has a partner. The television show made Hoyt out to be a larger factor than he is in the books, but he is a major player in this one. Though there is a great deal of extraneous detail at times this book is quite good. There is a certain amount of disbelief that must be suspended by the listener, but much of the law enforcement portion of the story is well done if not particularly realistic. A good listen.
I love the series!
The name is Rizzoli. There is no "t" in it and yet the narrator continually pronounces it with a "t". Quite annoying.
I am an artist and I love to listen to books while I work. Books have always been an important part of my life. Audible Rocks!
I was disappointed with this book because I read a later book from the series first.
Anna fields is a narrator I don't care for. I just don't like her voice. She does a competent job, so draw your own conclusions.
Unlike many of Audibles Series offerings, The readers change throughout the series. They are all ok and don't ruin the books or mispronounce names, as is often the case in some of the other series I have listened to.
This book needs to be read for the character foundations, and it is an ok book. The later books are much better, with more intricate plotting, interesting stories and plenty of twists.
Read this one and then get the others in the series. You won't be disappointed.
once you get it out of your head that this is not alot like the tv shows and listen to it as a whole new series with same names then you will love this book. For example Jane brother tommy iin the movie is named Mike in the book. I really LOVE the way she writes these books. Its like reading 2 sides of the story and sometimes your surprised where they come togeather.
