Rereading the older books

Where does Blow Fly rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Blow Fly is excellent just as the previous Scarpetta books have been.

What other book might you compare Blow Fly to and why?

Can't compare it to any other book outside of Patricia Corwell's Scarpetta collection.

What does Kate Reading bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She brings the characters to life and gives them personality. It allows you to form connections to the characters. I don't listen to the Scarpetta series if Kate Reading is not the reader. I will read the book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely.

Any additional comments?

The previous Scarpetta series that were not read by Kate Reading should be redone with her narrating.

Anticlimactic

I was waiting for the story to reach its peak. But it ended before it got really interesting. I will try another title sometime.

Superb !!

I am hooked on Patricia Cornwell !! Great book. I love Kay Scarpetta and Marino. Those two make a great team. I look forward to the next novel. I Sure hope it's as good as this one.

The reading and the story were great.
The problem I have with this recording is there are at least 4, 10 second overlays where they were edited together. One of the worst editing jobs I've heard from audible.

Good Enough

My only dissatisfaction with this book is its length which is just too long.

Lots of "wow" moments!

I think Blowfly is one of Cornwell's best & narrator is outstanding!
The story was so involved & interesting that I had to stop listening at bedtime because I found myself just staying awake & listening! lol Narrator is SO talented! I was impressed several times by her "bayou" brogues & also the foreign accents - French, German, Polish, etc... very talented! After the ending of this one, I'm going to download the next one right now!
