Good tale, awful narration.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The Narration is awful; mumbling, whispering then verging on shouting; I never knew what volume to have the headphones at. I persevered because the story was good.

What did you like best about this story?

The plot/overall story.

Did Pat Starr do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

No.

Did 5th Horseman: The Women's Murder Club, Book 5 inspire you to do anything?

No.

Any additional comments?

No.

Truly Boring Book!

One of the worst books it has been my misfortune to listen to! I doubt Patterson had any input writing it and the coauthor Maxine Paetro is responsible for this complete mess of a book. As if things couldn't get any worse, the narrator is absolutely painful to listen to as well!

Really coming round to this series

Huge Alex Cross and Patterson Fan, Completed Alex Cross series and continued with Private series of books, needed a Patterson fix. Started with the first book in the series and came to visualise the characters. Still has all the twists I have grown to Love in Pattersons books and he as always paints a great bad guy/ girl. If you enjoy Alex Cross, persevere and give this series a go. On to the next one!

5th Horseman

Another excellent book it's just ashame about the narrator. I'm just glad she's not narrating the next 5 books.

Good paced story, but...

I enjoyed the story of this book, but I'll be honest I had no idea who was talking, narrating or speaking. I got completely lost about 3rd of the way in and never recovered who the characters were or who was who. I didn't care about the characters and I was never clear who the protagonist was or who the characters where. I also seem to have missed the connection between the main plot and the subplot.. it's like two stories joined together for no real apparent reason. The two stories themselves are good and there is a good twist at the end that I didn't see coming. Perhaps I just missed something, but I still have no idea who all the cops were, who the journalists were and who I was listening to.
The narrator is good, although she pauses and goes so quiet sometimes that I couldn't always make out what she said!
So overall, it's average. Good story but confusing!

Believable

A good storyline, well narrated. I liked the characters and how they were portrayed. It's scary that this could be possible and is quite believable. A nice twist at the end!

Not that exciting

Not a bad listen as the reader does an excellent job. I found the story rather slow and a bit predictable in all honesty but pleasant to listen to all the same.

Gripping

Loved it though it took me some time to get used to a woman narrator. Found the epilogue ending a little rushed buy pleased they found the Night Walker - would have liked a bit more on "how" they found the Night Walker!
