Just the right mix of crime and passion!

Thank you to Connor Brown for providing me with a free audiobook in return for an honest review.

The Handyman is a perfect mix of crime and passion, split into a mini-series. The voice of the story, Vic, is an author who is starting to get sick of the rejection letters that he keeps getting every time he submits a story. The only feedback he ever receives is that he needs to get some experience in the fields he writes in so that he can talk with a little more knowledge…the only issue is, Vic is a murder mystery writer. But the perfect opportunities for experience begin to arise and Vic can’t resist the temptation to seize them.

I’ve never read a story like this, The story of an author writing a story about his experience is quite chilling when considering what it is he is writing about.

Not one of the characters in this book was perfect. Each one had their own flaws that made them very real and for each one, I would question their reliability or motives.

The twist in the final story was fantastic and I did not see it coming, I would be very interested in reading the next season of this to find out what happens next.

Connor Brown, the narrator was absolutely fantastic! His voice had a real edge to it, especially when discussing steamy or detailed topics that just kept me hooked. He really delved into the story and made it seem really real.

Some parts did seem a little unrealistic to me, I think the police were mentioned once or twice in this season but there didn’t actually seem to be any investigations or questions when people were murdered and an author released some very similar stories, perhaps the next season will focus on Vic’s alibis and how he copes when things start to point towards him.

OVERALL RATING
A really chilling and interesting listen

Intriguing and Disturbing – Mature Content

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

*I received this book as a gift in exchange for posting my unbiased review.

I appreciated the mystery and suspense but thought that there was WAY too much sexual content.

Would you recommend The Handyman : Season I to your friends? Why or why not?

If I had friends that enjoyed this genre, I'm still on the fence on whether I would recommend this book.

Which character – as performed by Connor Brown – was your favorite?

Connor Brown performed the title character(Author Victor) very well.

Could you see The Handyman : Season I being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Absolutely not, unless on cable or pay-per-view series. I have no idea who I would cast because I am not up on actors/actresses.

Any additional comments?

Notes: Mature themes, some violence and some strong language

Empty Calories for the Soul

Wow. This is some dark material. It is sexy, but it is EVIL. It really tests the values of the reader. Are you turned on? If so, why? While it is sexual, it is dark.
This book is like a combination of Penthouse Letters and Pulp Fiction of the past.
Very well written and read. Connor Brown does a great job as he usually does even under other names.
The book is entertaining, but you may not feel good about yourself when you finish.

Well!!! That was fun!!!

I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review

This was a great listen, with some additional drama involved. I really wasn't expecting where he got his stories from, and it was a great twist at the end ( I really don't want to give much away).

But Victor needed something to get his writing flowing.. and he found it.

The mixture of murder and sex, (and steamy sex).. made for an interesting listen.

Connor Brown did an excellent job of narration.

Great Book! Awesome Narrator!

I really enjoyed this book! It keeps you guessing at every turn! Connor Brown did a really good job with the voices, although there were a few points where i wasn't sure if it was Stella talking or Vic.
I was given a credit to review this audiobook. A definite must listen!

twisted and dark

Three short stories following the main character, Victor, as he gets deeper and deeper into a situation with no way out for the sake of fame. He comes across as many things throughout the three stories and none of them endearing, including naive to be duped like that. Quite a twist in the third one where it is revealed who is orchestrating the his life, giving him the shock of his life. Suspense, twisted logic, cold blooded murder mixed with erotica makes for an interesting story.

I enjoyed listening to Mr. Brown's voice, easy on the ear, I will check out his other narrations for sure.

A bunch of sex and murder

For me the best thing about this book was the narration. The story was ok but by the end of it I felt like I had just listened to a bunch of sex scenes with some murder thrown in between. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Great read

The Handyman: Season zone by Vincent Zandri was a great read. Season One consisted of three episodes; Lust and Letters, Naked Heat and Savage Sins. Vic is an aspiring author that keeps getting rejection letters for his story. His neighbor propositions him to kill her husband and become The Handyman. What follows Vic could have never imagined himself. I enjoyed reading this book.

Twisted Mix of Erotica and Horror

I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

Almost 4 stars. I’m becoming a tough critic but this one caught my interest from the beginning because it’s just so twisted! At first I thought him a freeloader, then a nympho, then a thrill-seeker, then cold and spineless, and finally, a victim... and I’m left wondering what he’ll be in the next book.

This is my second listen from Connor Brown and I wasn’t disappointed. He’s a talented narrator.
