Reviews

A Great Mystery!

(5 stars)

I don't give 5 stars lightly. This book deserves it. I listened twice as it had been a long time since the 1st time & I forgot who did it & why. Both times I thought I knew but was wrong! Caroline has a slight accent but reads well, at an appropriate pace, & clearly. These should be requirements for readers. If you have trouble understanding her, although I don't think that would be the case here, then use one or both earbuds instead of listening though a regular speaker. That gender bending review is just ridiculous, BTW.

Whispering Pines

(5 stars)

This must be AK G'S crowning glory! I haven't read them all yet but I believe this to be best. Carolina reads it perfectly. Her voice helps the suspense and sympathy that the story requires. Thank you librivox

Keeps you guessing. Who is the killer?

(4 stars)

This is a great story! Love the horse and buggy era in a winter setting. Keeps you guessing who the killer is. Carolin reads the whole story. Had to get use to her she makes it hard to stay awake. Wish others had a chance to read a chapter to mix it up a bit. She has no expressions when reading characters. Yawn!

Volunteer readers be blessed

(5 stars)

The blending of circumstances, highly stressful situations, &, personal relationships, all combine in A.K. Green murder mysteries so beautifully! Human nature, psychological thrills, Detectives, Lawyers, even the sense one would get from a local Courtroom, give this novel 5 Stars, & were it available, would rate a 6+!!

Just okay

(3 stars)

I've truly enjoyed other books by this author but this one was just okay. Too many cryptic characters -- either in comas or acting extremely odd. And I never did have a good sense of the main character either. The Librivox volunteer reader did a good job, though.

Will not learn story by audio

(2 stars)

I read to relax. Cannot w/reader. I appreciate her time & effort but her tone & pronunciation are not suitable to a leisurely "read." Too bad. I'm know I'm missing out on so many interesting stories... I'll borrow hard copy.

Interesting story

(3.5 stars)

The story was quite good and definitely keeps you guessing. I don't mind this reader but I think this book was more than she could handle. Dozens of words pronounced incorrectly made it distracting and hard at times to follow the story.

Too wordy!

(2 stars)

I did not like this AKG book. I have liked all her others, but this one was way too wordy and drawn out. None of the characters captured my imagination or interest. Reader was good, but story was sub-par.
