Audie Award Winner, Mystery, 2014

    "Can't get enough of this series!"
    Where does Unleashed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    We listen to a lot of audio books and the Andy Carpenter Series is by far our favorite.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Each book in the series reveals a little bit more of the "fringe" characters. It was great to learn a little more about Sam in this book. There are alsway enough plot twists to keep you guessing and engaged. You can't help but smile when the whole team get's back together with each new release.


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

    I can't EVEN imaging another voice reading this series. Grover brings the perfect amount of sarcasm, wit and self deprecation to Andy's character. His voices are consistent across the series from Marcus' grunts to Hike's paranoia. Excellent reader!


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

    This is a LAUGH OUT LOUD series! My husband and I listened poolside in Hawaii and when we got up to swim, a couple next to us asked "What are you listening to? You are laughing a lot!" We highly recommend this series to friends and family looking for a funny, entertaining and easy read/listen.

    "ANOTHER GREAT ANDY CARPENTER BOOK"

    I fell in love with this series several years ago and ended up listening to all of the books available in audio format - back to back. However, the best way to really enjoy them is to do one every 6 to 12 months, so you forget why you liked the books so much in the first place! Once again, here we get a great crime mystery and likeable characters, combined with humorous writing and smart dialogue. Narrator Grover Gardner continues to provide the perfect delivery. I sincerely hope that when the two works in this series (currently not available as audiobooks) are recorded, the producers don't ruin the Andy Carpenter magic by changing narrators. Or, even worse - horror of horrors! - allow some "A-List" actor to READ (as opposed to NARRATE) the new books. A sure-fire way to bite this great series of man and mutt in the butt (pun INTENDED)! 😄

    "I always enjoy the Andy Carpenter series..."

    I love everything about this series, the narrator's voice, the author's sense of humor. It is like candy for my ears. I am certain that I will always buy books by this author. I enjoy them immensely.

    "Andy is back again."

    I love Andy Carpenter, he is so funny. The story was good, although it is basically the same story as the previous ones and if you have gotten this far in the series, you know what I mean. I will read Andy stories anyway, he is always fun. One thing I don't like is that he does the point of view from way to many characters and then kills them off. Love the narrator, he is Andy.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Unleashed to be better than the print version?

    I never read the print version but I love the reader and I love the silly stories!!!


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

    He is one of the best of all of the readers. I follow him around.

    "What Ted said ..."

    ... is right on and he says it so well. This is a thoroughly delightful series. Lots of murders but not much mayhem. Interesting cast of characters as seen through Andy's eyes. And Grover Gardiner IS Andy.

    Please read series from the beginning, "Open and Shut". You'll be glad you did.

    Story
    "humourous well crafted murder mystery"
    What did you love best about Unleashed?

    This review holds for all the Andy Carpenter stories. I love them to bits. I literally laugh out loud at some of Andy's comments. He is a very likable character who despite the pretense of only caring about himself, will always put himself out when he finds a friend or deserving person in need. He is both detective and lawyer and so his stories include twists and turns arising from investigations. Andy is brilliant in the courtroom, so despite going into every court case as the underdog, he always comes out on top in the end.

    I am not a pet owner or lover, but I love the affection that Andy has for his dog Tara and his Foundation for lost or rescued dogs. There are a number of terrific characters that turn up in each book in the series. The best for me are Marcus, a huge and nearly mute man who acts as security for Andy, and Edna the crossword guru who rarely lifts a finger to do any work around the office.

    These books are original, but they have a tiny sprinkle of John Grisham (court room tensions and story twists), a sprinkle of Michael Connelly (well crafted mystery and crime) and liberal sprinkle of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series (laugh out loud humour and lovable quirky characters).


    What about Grover Gardner’s performance did you like?

    Occasionally audio book performers just read them book out loud. Not Grover Gardner, to me he is Andy Carpenter. He performs the story, put just the right inflections in and reading at just the right pace. He has what I think is a very believable US east coast accent, I love the way he says corwfee (coffee). But I am not American and so I am only guessing that is how they speak in that part of the world.
