What disappointed you about Portrait of a Dead Guy?
The main character is weak. If she would have stood up for herself it would have been a better read.
Would you ever listen to anything by Larissa Reinhart again?
Probably not. I downloaded the 2nd book in series so I'll listen to it too
since I already have it.
Would you be willing to try another one of Erin Clark’s performances?
Probably not. The horrible Southern accent she is doing is hard to listen to.
By the way, I am from Georgia...I know a Southern accent.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Hated that I wasted my money and time. None of the characters have any redeeming qualities.
Any additional comments?
The author needs to find another line of work.
