The story held promise but turned into such a disappointment. I didn’t care about any of the characters. Hard to finish listening to the entire story ... I do not recommend.

What would have made One Perfect Lie better?

A better story with more detail. I didn't care what happened to any of the characters, because I didn't feel like I knew them.

Would you ever listen to anything by Lisa Scottoline again?

Other people seem to like her books, so maybe it's just this one that's not so good? So perhaps ...

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Several of the characters sounded the same and it made it difficult to follow along.

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

Disappointment ... and I can't understand why there are so many good reviews?

What could Sarah Pinborough have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

None of the characters were likable in the least. I have an hour left of the book, and I'm not even bothering to finish.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She was fine, nothing amazing. She didn't deliver real differences in personality for each character.

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

I like long books! And it was that.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I liked the story, but the narrator is laughably bad. Just horrible.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The main character had the most annoying voice of all. The other voices were just variations of that voice. No range.

Was The Key to Justice worth the listening time?

Yes - if you can ignore the narrator

Any additional comments?

I liked the story, but the dialogue between the main character and his girlfriend AND the dialogue from the female detective could have certainly benefited from a woman's touch.

What disappointed you about Guilt by Association?

It tries hard, but never takes off.

What could Marcia Clark have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I don't care to know the characters -- make them more interesting.

What didn’t you like about January LaVoy’s performance?

Not enough variation in characters.

What character would you cut from Guilt by Association?

I only got 1/3 of the way through ... so it's hard to say. I just couldn't finish it.

Any additional comments?

Make at least ONE of the characters interesting, if not likable.

What did you love best about Ladies' Night?

The premise and character development.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I really liked Ashley, because her self-involvement was so entertaining. It was entertaining to hear her thought process (as she unapologetically thought of no one but herself). Of course, in real life, I would stay as far away as possible!

If you could take any character from Ladies' Night out to dinner, who would it be and why?

The dog, of course!

Would you ever listen to anything by Adam Mitzner again?

Perhaps, but it isn't at the top of my to do list.

Would you be willing to try another one of David LeDoux’s performances?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

Some good plot twists, but overall I just found the characters' whining annoying.

What made the experience of listening to The Heist the most enjoyable?

The storyline and narrator's performance. I laughed out loud more than once, which isn't typical.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Heist?

I don't want to give it away, but it involves El Pollo Loco.

What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

Sometimes a male doesn't seem to be able to capture a female character's personality, but Scott did. I never found myself rolling my eyes at the way he brought any of the characters to life, including the females. (Same is true for female narrators, by the way. I am an equal opportunity complainer.) :)

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Fall in love with a con man, get played, and come back for more.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for more books in the series!!! And keep Scott as the narrator, please!
