    "Heat Wave"

    As a fan of Nathan Fillion I was excited when "Castle" aired on TV. This book is a great compliment to the show and a fun read. TV or book please keep the "Heat" coming.

    "Ok Book. Boring Narrator."

    The story itself was pretty much what I expected from a book "written" by a character from a TV show. Light entertainment. The narrator had a very small range of voices, so it was often difficult to tell which character was speaking - even if the character was male or female.

    "Terrible!! Don't waste your time"

    This book was no where as good as the television series. It was boring and I only made it about 2 hours into it before I stopped listening because I couldn't handle it anymore. The characters were boring and narration was dull. Don't bother getting this book.

    "Second worst narrator ever"

    Seriously, I can see making the mistake of hiring a bad narrator once, but twice??? Why does Johnny Heller narrate anything? The tv show is fun, so I was looking forward to this even though I didn't expect much from the story. But the narrator made it unbearable. I can't even finish. Nikki Heat, the presumably hot young female detective sounds like a 60-year old smoker. And why does the leading man, the leading woman, and the narrator all have exactly the same voice????

    "Needs a new narrator"

    I can't tell if the book is good or not. The dramatic whisper of the narrator was so irritating to me that I can't stand to listen to it. I don't know why he couldn't use a normal tone of voice. From what I could listen to, the storyline seemed good and the characters were likable. I think this will be a book I would rather read than listen to.

    "Different narrator would have been great!"

    I must start by saying I am a fan of the Castle television show but quickly adapted to Detective Heat's character being very different from the "inspiration". The story line was not earth shattering, but it was enjoyable. My main problem and distraction was Mr. Heller's narration. Despite his annoying voice I was determined to complete the story to see if I could figure out "who done it". However, I will not listen to anything else that he is associated with.

    "Easy Read"

    The book was very simplistic, but a quick and easy listen on beach or an airplane. I don't believe that a person who is not a fan of Castle would enjoy the book.
    The performer read very fast making it difficult to always understand and follow the book.

    "terrible reader"

    not sure how good the book is. love the tv series. couldn't listen. The reader is the worst I have ever heard. Unintelligible, variable volume, reads like he doesn't care what he is reading.
