Career of Evil audiobook cover art

I have read every one of the Robert Galbraith books to date, but I think this was my least favorite so far. Not only was it much darker and more violent than the previous books in the series, but I felt that the violence was unnecessary. Several chapters were told from the killer's POV, and they were less effective than I would have liked. Instead of making me more invested in the story, I felt he was unrealistically evil.

J.K. Rowling is always an excellent storyteller, and this book is no exception. Just be aware that this is a darker, more complicated book than anything else I've ever read from her.

This is a great series for anyone looking for a fantastic "beach read" as we head into Spring Break season and summer. Not only are each of the relationships great, with just the right amount of sensuality, but Caitlin Elizabeth does a great job in her narration. I found myself getting lost in the story as I listened to all three books. The perfect bit of mind candy for long time romance readers and casual listeners alike.

Although I'm not a huge baseball nut, I thought this would be a fun and timely read as baseball season kicks into full gear. I was not disappointed. This book covers a huge amount of baseball history in a relatively short space, with a fun, conversational tone. As a casual baseball fan, I especially appreciated learning all about the traditions surrounding baseball. Now when I watch games, I feel like I have a whole new appreciation for what I'm seeing. I highly recommend this for casual and avid baseball fans alike.

Not only does he cover basic mechanics such as how to outline, create memorable characters, and structure the novel, but he also includes tips on getting into your creative flow state in order to maximize your creativity. All in all, this book is an excellent resource for writers of all ages and in all stages of their career.
