Great story, great reader
This was a great listen, bug the title is wrong. whoops! It has the title of one book, and is announced as another! But is was a great listen!
Don't waste a credit (or money) on this audiobook
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
No, this was a waste of time, and I was not able to finish the audiobook = narrator was not good. It sounded like this was the first time he read the book.
Would you recommend Dead Shot to your friends? Why or why not?
No, I would not recommend the audiobook to anyone. I need to try the Kindle or paperback version so I can at least get through the story.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sonny Dufault?
Anyone would be a better narrator. Bill Cooper has done other books. Or Ron McLarty does and excellent job voice-acting for audiobooks.
Could you see Dead Shot being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
I honestly don't know. I only got through chapter 46 before I gave up, deleted the book, and considered the credit used as a lost/lesson learned.
Any additional comments?
My wife listened to two chapters and asked "is this a kids' book? It sounds like he's reading to elementary school children".
I had difficulty telling which character was speaking since the narrator's vocal inflections were virtually identical.
