Shattered Lung

A great read that had me from the first page to the last. It had me on the edge of my seat. The Author has done a great job to the storyline. As well as bringing out the Characters. The Narrator has done a great job as well. I definitely recommend.

Framed!

A story where a graphic designer helps a friend who has been framed for a murder.


The story was interesting and built up nicely, but i struggled to really get into it and enjoy it. I didn't feel that excitement nor pull that i get from amazing books. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good.


The narrator did a good job with the different character voices and added good emotion into the performance.


Note: This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this objective review voluntarily.

I just couldn’t get into it.

The story wasn’t bad but after the first hour it just felt like it was being dragged out and I never could get that invested in any of the scooby-doo/thug/investigators, and lack of any main characters or depth to anyone. Narration wasn’t my favorite he does different voices which is good but he sounds like he is utterly bored and uninterested in it himself.

Who? What? Where? When? Why?

When an elderly doctor dies after receiving a bottle of cologne from an old friend, that man immediately becomes suspected of his murder. Jamie was trying to start a perfume business and the doctor after as a tester of his new fragrances. A partner in the new business and also a close friend, Demi immediately goes to Jamie's assistance.

Shattered Lung is an intriguing story told from multiple viewpoints: that of the victims (more than one) a private eye team of investigators, Jamie, the killer, and Demi - this latter reporting on the first person - and the whole is interlaced with the recollections of Junior: the killer's past history which had brought him to the state of mind and decision to murder. It is an interests format but distracting, even confusing, especially given the the narrator, Chris Koprowski, though otherwise good, has a tendency not to pause at the endings of chapters, moving straight into the next without indicating the change. To follow the story, therefore, requires complete concentration (or the rewinding of the book to find out what is happening, especially in the earlier chapters).

My thanks to the rights holder of Shattered Lung, who, at my request, freely gifted me with a complimentary copy via Audiobook Boom. It was a slightly eccentric but enjoyable read and I will certainly look out for the work of author Joshua Holmes again in the future.
