Thrilling Serial Killer Novel

Butterfly Kisses was a good serial killer novel. I thought the story was laid out nicely with good pacing. The character development was fair - could have used more. Overall it kept my attentions and Michael Pauley's narration really brought the story and characters to life. I look forward to more from this Author & Narrator

horrible narration

I wish I had listened to a sample before I bought this book. The narration is monotone & impossible to listen to. Waste of my money.

Ugh

I wanted to like this. The story line itself was getting to be a little intriguing, but I was completely and totally thrown out of it by the narrator so many times that I had little tolerance for any sort of annoying plot holes or cliched tropes.

So when the villain was introduced as "the man in black" (biggest cliche ever) it sent me right to the edge of "NOPE" immediately, and then...oh gosh. The villain said to the main protagonist (only he says this to himself where only he can hear it while lurking in the shadows and looking at the main protagonist -- another whopping cliche) "your time will come"... Eye roll inducing cliche number 3 in a matter of seconds. I'm OUT!!

What year is this?? The story includes smart phones and references to Urban Dictionary, but the villain is out of a 1970s B film?? I was waiting for the narrator to say he wrung his long bony fingers together whilst saying "mwaaahahahahahHaha" afterwards. Geeze!!!!

So I may end up slogging through this when I've run out of reading credits for the month, but I just can't force myself back to it right now.

took a bit to get used to

I struggled at first with a narrator as he is almost overly excited in his voice and his reading... But I got used to him and I really enjoyed the story and characters of this book my only struggle again, was the narrator but he grows on you. I just finished this book and and purchasing the next one in the series very good story!

Pitiful narration

I couldn’t continue this book. The narration does not match the story. Narrator read the entire story in a panic tone.

Intense and scary

This is a fabulous thriller, and one that I'm simply couldn't stop listening. The plot is original and well-thought, and the writing great.

A new favourite author, no doubt about it.

And Michael Pauley's reading is perfect, adding to the intensity of the story and making this a very recommend audiobook.

Butterfly Kisses

The story was great. I have mixed feelings about the narrator. Much of the time his voice was very robotic. Almost sounded system generated which was not appealing. At times it sounded natural which was good.

predictable

the plot was a little predictable. the twist wasn't enough to make me rush out for the 2nd book. and the narrator had weird inflections and his attrmpt at accents failed in my opinion... at least I could distinguish between characters so I have heard worse!
