If you need to follow Quinn’s progress listen to abridged version if there is one. The details felt like padding and were boring.

I foresaw the end from the start and characters one dimensional. Reader was good though.

Where does Etta and Otto and Russell and James rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Right up there.

What about Robert G. Slade’s performance did you like?

I forgot it wasn't multiple readers.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Everything to do with James as a guide.

Would you try another book from Mark Greaney and/or Jay Snyder?

Narration was good. Story not.

Would you ever listen to anything by Mark Greaney again?


After the first few Gray Man novels the plots became increasingly strained with extensive rough and tumble chase scenes and too much unnecessary details that seemed only there to fill pages.

What does Jay Snyder bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Narration was good.

Could you see Ballistic being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No

Nothing better than some Tiffany Aching in your stocking. Terry Pratchett and Stephen Briggs truly make magic.

Under the Dome audiobook cover art

His politics only make it better!

Anyone surprised by King's language hasn't read him before. The comments about the reader are puzzling as he does an excellent job and I often find myself lingering in my car to see what happens. After reading the comments about his political slant I was attuned to it and found he was quite tame and, for this reader, there were many opportunities he missed.

Beginner's Guide to Dream Interpretation audiobook cover art

Running with the dream wolves

Clarissa describes a way of interpreting dreams using ones own associations instead of those of dream dictionaries- allowing one access to the messages of dreams in a much more direct and authentic manner.

One Step Behind audiobook cover art

Not your average serial killer

Overall
4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 02-25-10

A straight forward, plausibly paced, police procedural that, while realistic, was extremely engaging . Mankell's characters are fully developed and he isn't compelled to create a crime so horrific (as most American mystery writers do) that you are never able to see the murderer as a human being. Nice shades of grey. Kurt Wallender reminds me of another favorite- Harry Bosch.

The Windup Girl audiobook cover art

Smart sci-fi

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 10-12-09

Sci-fi with an emphasis on sci. No gratuitous plot lines. Complex without confusion, evocative, terrifying (a la Oryx and Crake), engrossing from start to finish. Excellent reader. Bravo Audible.
