    Story
    "A disappointment"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This book seems to have been forced into print. Not the usual Deaver style and attention to detail.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jeffery Deaver again?

    I have read/listened to all of the Rhyme books and other Deaver books as well and have enjoyed all of them. This was an aberration. If he publishes again, I'll read it, I'm sure.


    Could you see The Kill Room being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No. Too boring.

    Story
    "Lincoln Rhyme's most thrilling case to date!"

    THE KILL ROOM is a thrilling listen! Jeffery Deaver is in top form in this latest Lincoln Rhyme novel. Its fast-paced plot and intricate characters make this a must listen.

    With all of the twists and turns, the three readers were used effectively to make the story more compelling and capture the complexity of the plot. It's definitely one of the best audiobooks I've listened to within the past year.

    If you read/listen to Ken Follett, David Baldacci, Brad Meltzer, Michael Connelly, Lee Child, or John Standford this audiobook is for you!

    It's nice to have Lincoln Rhyme back in action!

    Story
    "multiple narrators = one big mistake"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    no one


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    the book seems like a rush job. it lacks the patience and mystery that deaver has brought to past lincoln rhyme books.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

    any of those who have previously read lincoln rhyme books


    Any additional comments?

    i don't know whose idea it was to cast several narrators, but it was a big mistake - very distracting in a way that takes one away from the story. i've enjoyed all the lincoln rhyme books, but i'm very disappointed by this one.

    Story
    "One reader, please."
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrators were fine, there were just too many of them. I found it annoying and distracting to have a female voice "break in" on my listening every time Amelia Sachs had lines, especially since all the other characters were voiced by the primary narrator. Neither did a bad job or had a displeasing voice, it was just weird to have them both. (I don't mind audiobooks that alternate character narrators by chapter - but just a line here and there breaks the pace or something.)

    Lincoln's a great detective.
