Crack another case with Eve Dallas.
©2007 J. D. Robb; (P)2007 Brilliance Audio
I loved the inventive story line by Robb and without a doubt, Susan Ericksen is and will always be Eve Dallas. These books aren't heavy but more entertaining and once you start at the beginning of the series... it's almost a sure bet you'll want to hear the next book. I just hope they put this series on sale again soon! I would by several more at a time.
I love this whole series. Put in the future with a strong woman who is a police detective. With all her flaws finds the man of any womans dreams. Each book has a different mystery to be solved. Great characters!
I'm only half way thru this book. The story is good...I think...but the narrator is so over the top with her expressions that I can't take the action seriously. I'd love to hear this one with someone else reading it.
My title says it all. This is a fun, fluffy set of books that I usually enjoy. But not with this narrator. She especially destroys the character of Delia w the voice she gives her. Too bad.
It's tempting to sue the publishers for mental anguish. Cartoon characters, and an unlikable protagonist, make a dumb plot dumber. And what is the future-setting in aid of? It commits many minuses, and adds no pluses. My guess is it's pure laziness, so that the author doesn't have to know anything about her topics and can blame anomalies on "things will have changed by then." And speaking of change, her notions of where we'll be by then are worthy of deep derision.
AUDIO: Oh spare me! I thought I'd suffered the worst possible overacting, but this is a new level of degradation. Even had the writing been better, no one could like this "heroine."
Okay I love all the JD Robb books - these audiobooks are not worth it though. Nora uses Susan Eriksen for alot her books, she did a great job with the Key books but does not do Dallas and Roarke's voices very well. Peabody is from Arizona - but Susan uses a Boston or New York accent for her. She just does not do JD Robb books justice. I was very disappointed because I would have bought all the of the audiobooks as I did with the actual books. Again Susan was not a good choice for this series.
