The narrator hurt this book for me more than usual. He was very good on the male voices and some of the female voices. But he portrayed the majority of the females as hysterical non stop talkers - when there were times they should have least been portrayed as indignant or cunning.
The story line was good - what I've come to expect from Graham and I'll continue with her books. I enjoyed the book and listened as often as I could to get to the end. The ending could have been a little more solid but I don't hold that against the storyline.
Say something about yourself!
Will finish the book even though it will be a struggle and because I have listened to all the previous books.
Jane is not a grandmother, but she sounds like one. As well as most of the other women. Usually Luke Daniels does a better job. He has narrated all but one of the krewe novels, but after this one I'm thinking he wants to get fired from doing them. Since he has done so many, it would have been nice if he could have remembered the voice he used for that person in a previous book.
I like the Krewe of Hunters books. They are the same book, that is to say - there is a formula to all of the Krewe books; historic building, ghosts, bad guys and a love story. Nothing wrong with that, it's nice to have an idea of what you're going to get before you listen. This one was all over the place. It felt really rushed, and because of that it didn't make much sense. The ending was so abrupt, I think I got whiplash.
Luke Daniels is one of my favorite narrators but he didn't have much to work with here. I could hear the difference in each characters voice, and Jane, Kelsey and Logan all sound the same from previous books. However, the rest of the characters (with the exception of Johnny Bearclaw and Longman) have no discernible ethnicity and no accents, so there was no real place for him to shine. All in all, kind of a let down.
The story was good, just like Heather Graham's other work.
The mannequin room.
Not sure, but this narrator made the characters cartoon-ish. The eerie quality was replaced with tongue in cheek.
I wished I had read this instead of listened to it.
While this wasn't my favourite book from the series it was still very entertaining and I am eagerly anticipating more instalments.
While Luke Daniels remains one of my favourite narrators and there was nothing wrong with his character portrayal I felt the narration was a little like he was reading from a Dick Tracy comic strip. Slightly disappointing and not his usual best.
This is honestly one of the first books by Heather Graham that I did not like. Plus, I usually love Luke Daniels as a narrator but this was not up to his usual standards.The storyline was weak as were it's characters.
She could've made some the characters a bit more serious.
It did. But overall was not thrilled with the narration.
I feel like this was a waste of a credit.
I have enjoyed the series Krewe of Hunters by Heather Graham. The are light reading and entertaining. The narration is in the series is not very well done, however in this latest novel it is just painful. I believe It was the worst performance
I have ever listened to! The books deserve better!
The plot was thin and not very well developed. The narration made me cringe.
Write a better book.
The straight narration would have been fine. The character voices were so terrible that I had to keep putting it down.
I have enjoyed previous Krewe of Hunters books. This is definitely not one of them.
