Wondeful wonderful narrator, will be looking into other books he's narrated b/c he was so good. I REALLY liked this book. The writing is great and keeps you interested, even if it's tangenting off/ giving back story/ over describing scenery so you can really visualize it: i tend to skip over over described things that don't feel necessary to the story: but JK really knows how to keep it interesting and doesn't really describe too much that is not necessary, so I never have that issue. I liked this story a lot better than the first Strike book. The storyline/of the first book really weren't my normal type of mystery book; I tend to read historical fiction detective novels, and especially not when the topic talks about some high fashion celebrity types: I only read because JK wrote it: BUT I was still interested the whole time because of her writing style/ was engaging, and I liked Strike and Robins characters and really wanted to see where they would go, so even though I didn't LOVE the storyline from the first one, it was enticing enough and I wanted to read this one. This storyline, while still not historical fiction, was still more my type of storyline. It does get a little gross at times and I worried how much more that would follow: but it stayed manageable and I was really surprised at the twist and couldn't wait to get back in my car to commute to continue listening.
I really enjoyed the first book with the Lula Landry case, but I REALLY loved this second novel in the the Strike series. The author is so incredible at describing not only scenery to make it simple to see the story in the reader’s mind, but the way he builds each character so simply clear is what I love. You just get to know each one of them by his description of them, and it just makes me want to listen more and more. I will admit, at times, that my mind did trail off, but that’s only because of how in-depth the writing is while painting the whole picture for the reader. I still was able to follow, and I can’t WAIT to listen to it again to catch anything j may have missed. Great book. Loved it! I’m very excited about the third one!!!
I enjoyed this book. Narrator was excellent. Looking forward to the last book in the series!
Love it as much as the first in the series. Excellent series! Enjoyed the narrator as well.
I did not like this book as much as the first one in the series. The story was hard to follow and not that interesting. I still really like the narrartor, though.
The book was good I got lost a lot! I think it's going to be one I listen to a few times to get all the little details.
I sent this back after listening to 3 cds. It was very boring and didn't like the reader.
Liked it better than the first book The Cuckoo's Calling. The next in the series Career of Evil is on my list to read soon.
This book was a waste of my time. The narrator was ok.
This is the second Galbraith I have listened to and loved it as much as the first. Excellent narration and the story keeps you going.
