******This review is for the abridged cd edition of this book.********
Hated it. Seriously hated it. The narrator (Deborah Hall) read the book in the most pretentious and condescending tone throughout. At the end of the 2nd cd (of 4), I quit listening.
I really wanted to like this book because if I pictured the words in my head when I was listening I could tell that it could be a decent, if not entertaining, book.
I'll give the author another chance in the future but I will definitely put the narrator's name at the top of my "avoid at all costs" list.
Don't skip the print version based on this review - just beware and don't get the audio version, ESPECIALLY if you're going to be stuck with it on a long car trip.
A Cat Named Brat (Alice Nestleton, Bk 20)
Cat-lovers, something to do with cats is pivotal in the plot, and several characters have cats themselves.
The plot on this latest Alice Nestleton mystery struck me a a bit of a stretch, but I do enjoy this series.
I listened to this in audio, and it was a little hard to get into in the beginning. I believe this was primarily due to the reader's voice. But it didn't take long to get caught up in the mystery and found it to have a delightful surprise ending.
