I just recently finished this book but it was not easy. I agree with the other reviewer in that the continuous "he said/she said" drove me crazy. The only reason I finished the book was because the story was very good. Something needs to be done with that speech. I like the author but I doubt I will be listening to those audios.
I love Kate Burton's narrations! Unfortunately Robert Parker's writing style doesn't lend itself well to audio books. The constant "He said" and "She Said" drives me nuts! Mr. Parker would be well served to allow some editing to his writings to make them less irritating when narrated. Simple voice inflections are usually all that is needed to indicate changes of characters, with an occasional "he said" only when absolutely necessary. Listen to Kate narrate Lisa Scottoline's audio books as an example.
I am extremely dissatisfied with this one and can't even finish listening to it!!!!
