    Story
    "Good story, voice is very different"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Thin Air to be better than the print version?

    I have really enjoyed Michael Pritchard's reading - I think he captured the dry wit of Robert B. Parker's writing. This reading makes Spencer sound more like Philip Marlow and I was not comfortable with the change. The witty remarks did not come across as well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story.


    Did David Dukes do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, but Spencer is not Philip Marlow. The reader lost the dry humor of many of Spencer's lines.

    Story
    "Good Book Ruined By an Awful Narrator"

    I read this book about twenty years ago and found it well written and quite entertaining. I thought I had listened to this book before; I thought that the reader had been Joe Mantegna. I'm not sure if I was mistaken about listening to this one previously, or if there has been more than one production. I'm damn sure if I did listen to this one previously I wouldn't have purchased it. The narrator is awful for the voice of Spenser and much worse for everyone else; avoid this one like a social disease.
