Distracting Narrator

Would you try another book from Cara Black and/or Carine Montbertrand?

I've read five or six of Cara Black's books; this is the first audio recording I've chosen. I will continue to read Black, but I won't listen to Montbertrand. I may have underrated the story, but it's only because I couldn't finish the audiobook.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Haven't finished it yet -- I have the book in my library and will read it the old-fashioned way.

Would you be willing to try another one of Carine Montbertrand’s performances?

Not if she tries to alter her voice for different characters. She just doesn't know how to do it without making all of them sound the same, sort of drugged and sleepy. Better narrators make it easy to distinguish one character from another. She'd have been better off just using her regular voice throughout.

Do you think Murder in Clichy needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Don't know yet.
