Story lacked continuity making the plot difficult to follow.

Narration was OK but reader whined a lot. Don't know if she got that from the story or if it is just her style of reading.

Talks more about touring Bali and the 2 main characters attraction to each other than any mystery. I figured out the "mystery" in the 3rd chapter.

Narrator did decent job considering the material she had to work with.

Read first 3 books in order and enjoyed them very much, especially the descriptions of the times, places, and lives of ordinary people. Was a bit disappointed in the 3rd book ending just as the 2 brothers found each other.

Very glad to see book 4 come out to continue the story of these 2 men and their lives together.

Gene Engene is the perfect reader for any western. His voice characterisations and delivery are perfect.

The stories are very erotic and arousing, putting the listener in a woman's mind as she enjoys her fantasies.

Reader is very good.

Only drawback is the LENGTHY introduction by the editor. Could have been cut by at least 5 minutes - maybe even 10.

This story will keep you guessing right up the the very end! Hurwitz has broken out of the typical thriller genre plot and come up with an engrossing and believable story that has you wondering what is happening and why all the way through the book.

I don't want to give away anything so won't go into the story itself other than to say I stayed awake all night to finish the book.

Scott Brick in not one of my favorite readers but he has out done his usual droning performance in this story. This is easily his best performance that I've heard.

This book is well worth the price of admission.

Robert A. Heinlein is widely and justly regarded as the greatest practitioner of the art of science fiction who has ever lived. Here are two of his greatest short novels: Gulf, in which the greatest super-spy of them all is revealed as the leader of a league of supermen and women who can’t quite decide what to do with the rest of us. And Lost Legacy, in which it is proved that we are all members of that league - or would be, if we but had eyes to see.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Flesh out stories more. Not so much preaching

Would you recommend Assignment in Eternity to your friends? Why or why not?

No. Not a good read/listen

Which character – as performed by Bronson Pinchot – was your favorite?

none

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

Won't happen!

Any additional comments?

Have been reading Heinlein all my adult life (over 40 years) and this is about the worst story that I have read by him.

I was really excited when I saw a Heinlein story that I had never heard of or read. The experience was very disappointing.

While this was written in the early years it just did not measure up to other stories from that time frame.

Her career in homicide has taken her into the darkest depths of New York City’s underground - and sometimes Lieutenant Eve Dallas feels more comfortable in those kinds of places than in the high-rise, high-society world of her billionaire husband, Roarke. But while she’s no party girl, she’s managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating the debut of The Icove Agenda. This time it’s Eve, not Roarke, who’s a guest of honor, since the film is based on one of her famous cases. Her partner, Peabody, is practically giddy....

Would you listen to Celebrity in Death again? Why?

Yes. Well developed plot and story and great performance by Susan Ericksen

What did you like best about this story?

The humor and relationship between Dallas and Peabody.

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

Susan Ericksen's performance brings the characters alive and gives them depth that I probably would not get just reading the novel.

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

Laughed a lot at the dialog betwen Dallas & Peabody and other quips made during the story.

Any additional comments?

Have listened to every Eve Dallas novel and enjoyed every one of them and without Susan Ericksen's performances they would not have been as enjoyable.Plan to re-listen to whole series (including short stories) very soon.
