Would you ever listen to anything by Louise Penny again?

No

Any additional comments?

The author wrote very derogatory statements about the Pope and the Catholic Church within the first couple of chapters. These statements are not necessary for the story plot.
If the author said such derogatory statements about Muslim / Islamic faith or the
Quran the outcry would result in the book taken off the market.

What would have made Fantasy in Death better?

This is my first experience listening to a J. D Robb book. I bought two more of her books as they were on sell. I hope her other books are better. Sexual remarks are not necessary as they add nothing to the story and are used just to add length to the story. I suggest J. D. Robb read and learn from Lincoln Child and Douglas Preston.

Has Fantasy in Death turned you off from other books in this genre?

This book has turned me off J. D. Robb.

What didn’t you like about Susan Ericksen’s performance?

I'm not sure if it Susan Ericksen's performance as much as it is a poor quality story.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No
