What the Critics Say

"Dolan's seemingly effortless prose sets off dialogue that surprises and delights, and his intricate plot is simply dazzling: a twisting, shifting labyrinth of events, characters, and motivations . . . every bit as good---if not better---than the first." (Booklist)

    I love listening audio books. I listen to between 20 and 25 per year while I work. Sure makes the days go fast.

    Story
    "It just keeps getting more intriguing."
    Where does The Last Dead Girl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I like a book that keeps going deeper and deeper, giving the reader things to think about and be aware of. This one did it for me. A good story, a superior narrator and an always changing plot. Good characters, well developed.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The plot twists. I kept being sure I had things figured out until I realized I didn't.


    What does Michael Kramer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Michael Kramer is among the best of the best narrators. Just the fact that he narrated the book made it a must read for me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Nothing extreme. A little nervous for the characters from time to time.


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to a LOT of books. I have listened to 30 or 40 books per year for the last 15 years. This one is not far from the top of my list. I bought the hard cover for my wife. I know she will enjoy it too.

    Story
    "A great, dark read, appropriate reader too."

    This was my first Harry Dolan read, and I was way impressed, by the plot, the writing, and the reader. All the characters seemed intelligent (included the deranged ones), which made you care about what they did and what happened to them. Another reviewer said he thought Michael Kramer was a monotonous-sounding reader, but I thought his voice and rendition were an excellent fit to the creepy darkness of this story, the only caution being he sounds like an older man than the protagonist, David Malone. The Last Dead Girl describes an intricate puzzle, keeping you guessing (and listening) until the last piece has fallen into place. Masterful.

    Story
    "This narrator is driving me crazy!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Definitely change the narrator. The story was okay but the narrator was absolutely awful. I have listened to other books narrated by Michael Kramer and I do not remember him being so horrible. It is truly painful to listen to him read this book.


    Would you recommend The Last Dead Girl to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not with this narrator.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator ruined this book. It was so bad that I almost returned the book several times. The voices he used for the different characters were awful. At times it sounded like he was reading through clinched teeth or holding his nose, just so bad it hurt to listen. Take my advice if you want this book read it in print and don't put yourself through this misery.


    Was The Last Dead Girl worth the listening time?

    No

    "Interesting"

    Had most of it figured out mid way through, but that didn't stop me from binge listening the last 3 hours.

    Story
    "Made me gasp outloud"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Dead Girl to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version - but the audio edition was flawless.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Just when you think you have a handle on this story, something changes, and you realize you don't. The "interludes" were shocking, and truly made me gasp in surprise. That doesn't happen to me very often.


    Have you listened to any of Michael Kramer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First time listening to Michael Kramer. Thought he did an excellent job, although since this story is told in the first person, his voice seemed older than the character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, too long a story for that.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story, very good narration. I highly recommend it.

    Story
    "Narrator is awful"

    Oh my gosh. This narrator needs to change his style or give up. Monotonous, boring, wooden delivery. Acted like he was trying to be Joe Friday. Stop.

    Story was ok.
