    "Gotta Go With Great Story, Horrible Narration"
    What did you love best about Stealing Shadows?

    Meeting Bishop. This is my third time thru the series and I must say I still found myself smiling.


    What other book might you compare Stealing Shadows to and why?

    Probably the Sherlock and Savich FBI series by Catherine Coulter, but I confess I like Bishop and crew better.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She was annoying. She made Bishop sound like a lispy little girl. It was horrible.


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

    I always do wanna listen to Bishop all the way thru .....

    Story
    "Enjoyable Psychic Mystery"

    with a strong romantic element. I like it when an author uses individual character depth and development to show the reader their importance to the story. I think mysteries make that a little trickier and it was done well here. Believable dialog, situations, and conflicts. Decent tension and pacing throughout. Solid mystery. Satisfying ending. The narrator did a good job differentiating between characters. I loved her rendering of the sherif best. I could actually picture him when she read his lines. All these parts added up so well, I was surprised that the whole felt somewhat canned/formulaic (and this coming from someone who reads mostly romances).

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

    It was a forgettable story, characters were under developed.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending was blah just like the rest of the book, again not good but not bad.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Cristine McMurdo-Wallis?

    Anybody else, no range of voices, well not a good range, they all sounded to old.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Nope!

    "Good story, could be even better"

    I will have to go back and listen to other books in this series. This was actually less fluff than I expected, but I feel I am missing a lot of character development that probably happened before this installment.

    The story here is good, but the revelations are far from earth-shattering. As the words flew by, I was much more interested in the people than the mystery, but it was good enough to warrant listening to another book in the series.

    I'm an avid audible book listener. I am a huge fan of supernatural books and like stuff that is scary but well written. I live in Denver Co

    "The story is good but narrator...."

    The story lost an awful lot by not having the right narrator. You could hear her breathing and swallowing and her voice was just droning.... I finished the book because the story was good by MY GOODNESS I couldn't wait to not have to hear her voice...

    Story
    "Entertaining mystery with a paranormal edge."
    Would you listen to Stealing Shadows again? Why?

    I wouldn't as I can never read, watch or listen to crime stories more then once. Once you know whodunit, that's it for me.


    What other book might you compare Stealing Shadows to and why?

    I don't usually read murder mysteries....maybe silence of the lambs?


    Have you listened to any of Cristine McMurdo-Wallis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I quite liked her style, but her voice was too old for the characters she is reading, particularly the main female character. This made the whole thing a little off.


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

    This was quite a nail biter. Had to keep listening to see what happened.


    Any additional comments?

    Once you get over the old sounding narrator, this is a great story, perfect listen while painting the house.

    Story
    "Distracting narration"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If you like stories about psychics or paranormal stuff, you would probably like this. I had picked up a book by Kay Hooper one summer as a beach read. While I likes it, I felt like I was missing too much back story, so I decided to start with the first novel, Stealing Shadows. While the first novel in a series, it is a stand-alone story that does not leave the reader / listener thinking that a sequel is required to finish the story. I liked that.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Stealing Shadows?

    Nothing really comes to mind.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    For me, the narrator definitely distracted from the book. While she did a good job with the voices, the microphone was too close to her mouth so I could hear her breath intakes and lips smacking. Very annoying.


    Did Stealing Shadows inspire you to do anything?

    No

    "A bit too long."

    My english does not allow me to write a complicated review but I can tell you that although I found the book a bit too long, it is a good story and I enjoyed listening. Very well narrated as well. So it is worth spending time with.
