Not as good as the original

I fell in love with Keller in Hit Man but this one just doesn't take his character as far. Still a fun read but misses the mark. Block is not as good of a narrator as the one in Hit Man. The individual stories are not quite as intriguing and quirky. Seems to ride the coat tails of Hit Man without being as fun.

This short story is a let down after Block's prior work. The voice of this book's reader is very annoying.

The narrator makes all the difference

Ouch!! It hurts to listen to this book. I listened to the first eddition in this series as fast as I could. It was great, and the narrator really gave Keller & Dot a personality. He picked up on the author's humor and gave the book some life. This new narrator speeds through the story like he's got something better to do, & puts the inflection in the wrong part of the sentences. Doesn't get the authors humor, and stumbles over Kellers quirky thoughts so bad their not funny anymore. Can I get a refund??

Narration Ruins the Book

This book is an excellent reason why authors should not read their books. As a narrator, Mr. Block exhibits no voice modulation abilities nor is his voice particularly pleasant to listen to.

The narration ruins this book -- I don't think that I'll be able to complete the book because it is just so difficult to figure out who is speaking.

What a shame . . .

Laura says it for me.

This may only be the second audio book I have not finished. I am 51 minutes into it and it just plain s*cks. I have read/heard 80% of Block's stuff and never said anything like this before. It is almost as bad as that Patricia Cornwell book where she tried to be funny...

Narration was awful!

I couldn't make it through the book because the nasality of Mr. Block's voice was so grating. Ordinarily I love his books because they're well-plotted, innovative, and well-written, but just can't make it through this one.
