Would you listen to Bag of Bones again? Why?

I would listen again as the book has such a lot to offer.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Bag of Bones?

When Mike first returns to Sara Laughs.

What does Stephen King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Depth and true understanding of the characters and story.

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

Yes but its a long listen so it wasn't possible but it gave me something to look forward to each day.

Any additional comments?

I have listened to many audio books, this one is my favourite. Narration was perfect and the story held me from start to finish.

Lacks depth of characters, not a believable story.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Characters are unlikeable. Also the facts haven't been checked. Det. Summers would not be able to work on the case as she has a family member involved. Their would be a task force not just a small team, with so many murders.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jams N. Roses again?

No

What didn’t you like about Don Kline’s performance?

He is clear and I would listen to him again but there are many mistakes made in they way words are pronounced. Which I think is just down the fact a American narrator may not know some of the slang terms or words used in this book. The book is set in England, and the American accent does not match the story. He has a good voice but for this book its doesn't work out well.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Murder in the Genes: The Trilogy?

Too many detailed sex descriptions, seemed to be used to pad out the story.

Any additional comments?

I have only listened to three hours of this book. I don't think I will listen to the end. I don't care about the characters and the story is more annoying then entertaining. I did check reviews before purchase and it got good reviews, maybe its just not for me.
