engaging and suspenseful mystery

Although I did enjoy the extra sound effects, they almost drown out the narration at times. Wonderful and engaging and suspenseful mystery story. Very well done.

The narration was excellent. Wonderful performances by all the narrators.

Nonstop action

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Miss Mae. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Catch Me If You Can is an old-fashioned whodunit. There is supposed to be a convention in Jenna’s hotel but only 10 people show up before a hurricane hits the island off the coast of South Carolina. Lois washes up on shore and is taken into the hotel but quickly realizes that she’s not safe after someone is murdered.

The characters are all interesting and they all have secrets. No one is who they seem to be in this mystery with nonstop action and suspense. There is a twist at every turn including a surprise ending. There’s even a touch of romance.

This isn’t a typical audiobook. There’s not just a narrator. There are sound effects and a different person speaking for each character. It’s a fun book to listen to and is reminiscent of radio before the days of television (or so my parents have told me).

Fun, radio drama-like murder mystery!

I do love a good dark, stormy, isolated murder mystery. The setting drew me right in. All these folks, most of them strangers to one another, are trapped at a small convention on a South Carolina island during a hurricane. Lois, our main female character, washes up on shore and is rescued by these convention goers. The plot thickens when a character ends up dead.

Then the characters do something smart: they all agree to move about in triples. This makes it rather hard for the murderer(s) to knock someone else off. Toss in some spyness-like intrigue, argumentative characters, various lies and pretenses, plus the lovable Retriever dog Mite, and you have a pretty entertaining tale.

In some ways, this story felt like a 1960s murder mystery. There’s several characters that fit well-worn (and well-loved) molds. Most of the ladies are beautiful and are of romantic interest. The guys range from the handsome but mysterious hero to the angry and sketchy but perhaps not a murderer type to the always flirtatious guy. If it wasn’t for the tech (the modern computer game Catch Me, etc.), I would have placed this story in the the 1940s-1960s based on the characters.

There were tons of reveals in this story. So many of the characters had ulterior motives that I actually became a little fatigued with all the people having ‘ah, ha!’ or ‘No! I may be a bad person but I’m not a murderer!’ moments as they accuse one another and respond. In the end, the big reveal of who is the murderer was a little surprising and then yet another surprise and then another. While I can appreciate the intricacy of plot, I did find it a bit of a whirlwind in such a short book where the characters have little time to develop.

Mite was one of my favorite characters. I’m glad there was a lovable furball in the mix. Lois was my next favorite because I didn’t know for the bulk of the book if she was simply a woman in need of assistance or if she was a schemer and potential murderer. While there was a good dose of canned, predictable dialogue, I was swept up in the story by the pace of the novel and the dark, stormy setting. 4/5 stars.

Narration: The narration and sound effects for this audiobook were top shelf. All the characters had unique voices complete with regional or national accents. I especially liked the voice for Jared, the flirtatious and rude (sometimes crude) arrogant jerk. The sound effects were well done along with the bits of music. They never overpowered the dialogue and they really kept me on the hurricane-drenched island. 5/5 stars.

good book, bad sound effects

I could not get pasted noise they had in the back ground... I get that there was a storm, but really does the sound of wind have to be in the back ground for chapters and chapters? Or when someone walked across the room, do we have to hear their heels on the hardwood floor? Or when they eat do we need to hear the clinking of silverware? Really kept me from getting out into the story.
What I could concentrate on the plot I liked I actually ended up getting the Kindle version of this in reading it. Good book bad sound effects.

It really came to life.

I have to admit that at first I wasn't sure that I would enjoy this audiobook because
of the multiple narrators and sound effects. I was worried with all the special effects and keeping up with all the different roles it would deter from the story with having so much to keep up with. While at first I found it distracting, it did not take longer before I was fully immersed in Catch me if You Can. The different narrators really did bring the story to life.

The author, Miss Mae, wove quite a twisted and shocking tale. Everyone at the inn was hiding something and most were not who they appeared to be. I would compare it to Murder on the Orient Express. I would love to see the authors outline and notes for this complex story.

I look forward to checking out other works by this author as well as the splendid group of narrators.
