What did you like best about Still Midnight? What did you like least?

The characters are hard to warm up to. Just when I get was getting into the book it just stopped. Very unsatsfying.

Would you be willing to try another book from Denise Mina? Why or why not?

Yet to be decided. It wouldn't be my first choice...

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

It might be easier to follow the plot since there are so many characters.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A normal narration style.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The breathy, gushing delivery distracted from the story to the point that I couldn't listen to this book.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Very disappointing. I might not have enjoyed this book in any case but I'll never know.

Any additional comments?

The narration was so bad that I can't tell if I might have enjoyed this book.

What disappointed you about Dangerous Women?

Dangerous can be thrilling or intriguing. This book was boring and yet creepy. Who is the intended audience? Men with adolescent fantasies? These are warped women who were NOT my pleasure to know.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Dull delivery across the board.

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

None

Would you listen to A Deeper Sleep again? Why?

Yes. I love the writing.

What did you like best about this story?

Vivid detail makes you feel like you know these characters personally. Alaska is as much a character as any of the people. It's fun to see the developing relationships in Kate's life.

What didn’t you like about Bernadette Dunne’s performance?

She should have listened to at least one of the previous books. She does a mediocre job with the voices and intonation. She's not horrible but the change in narration was continually intrusive throughout the book -not just at the beginning. Not a lot of variation in the voices.

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

Dana's books always make me laugh and cry.

What didn???t you like about Eric Dawe???s performance?

The narrator does a very poor job with voices. He is equally poor with doing male and female voices. Every time he varied his normal voice it was done poorly enough to be intrusive. I wouldn't get another book with this narrator.
