Love the character, but I can't listen to the narrator. You can hear her swallowing or something during the whole thing. Very annoying. I had to stop listening. If things like that bother you, I wouldn't recommend.
I found the book interesting, kept me interested and entertained...but the horrible narration was really hard to take! The tongue noises and dry mouth took away from the good story. Good mystery though.
Over the road truck driver and an avid fan of audiobooks.
If you want to listen to Barbara Rosenblat suck cough drops and swallow her saliva and gasp for breath during every pause; by all means feel free to waste a credit on this book.
It was so annoying that I stopped listening after 10 minutes.
While I love Linda Fairstein, and ordered her entire "Alex Cooper" series, the reader makes it impossible to listen to them.
Sorry to have wasted my $$$ and credits.
I would put Final Jeopardy in the upper middle class of the books I've listened to over the years. It was steady and well done.
This was an ending I had not anticipated until well into the book. It's different and plausible so that was a nice shift from what I was expecting.
Barbara Rosenblat has the sultry voice of a Kathleen Turner character. It's low and husky and slightly different from so many other readers. Once I got past the fact that this was a big voiced gal speaking a small woman's role I thoroughly enjoyed her performance.
Perhaps I liked the book as well as I did because it didn't produce an extreme reaction The characters were so well read, the accents so perfect, and the comfort with which they all interacted made this a comfortable listen.
It's easy to forget that the same person is doing all the parts in Final Jeopardy. Barbara Rosenblatt is more than equal to the task. She is marvelous with the male voices and makes Mike, the NYPD cop with whom she works, a great guy, someone I'd like to know. All the characters are quite separate with voices and inflections of their own. Well done.
The Narrator. She was great with doing the different voices, especially Lt. Wallace.
Dark Horse by Tami Hoag. Similar twists and turns.
No, just other Linda Fairsteins. I enjoyed this one more.
A real good listen
The characters are so well developed and defined. You can easily draw a vivid mental photo of them.
It was all good
No, I have a 3 hour commute every day. However when it got to the last few chapter, I found myself listening while at home.
I'm a huge Patterson fan, so I felt like I was cheating on him by listening to another author. I saw Linda Fairstein recently on the Today show and thought I would give her a listen, as she sounded like she was writing the kind of books that hold my attention. Although the book was long, I guess it was necessary to get the story told. I could do without all of the other little stories that were being told within the book. I'm hooked and am on to book # 2.
Could not stand Barbara Rosenblat's voice. She makes the character sound like an arrogant bitch. Alex Cooper is not believable. Too gifted and know it all. The charmed life is not necessary and detracts from the story.
No, just this author. I had collected all her books but am now selling them as I have no desire to read more.
Get a different reader.
Alex Cooper. I really like Mike. He is real.
