What disappointed you about Close Your Eyes?
Rather amateurish, both in writing and in narrator's performance. The story plot was interesting however, the dialogue of the characters lacks dept and maturity. The narration did not help the lack of maturity.
Would you ever listen to anything by Iris Johansen and Roy Johansen again?
Sorry, not unless it makes the best seller's list.
What didn’t you like about Elisabeth Rodgers’s performance?
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Sorry, not really!

What was most disappointing about Iris Johansen and Roy Johansen ’s story?
This book is nothing to write home about. For one thing the murder plot gets repetitive & boring real fast & any avid reader, movie buff or TV guru could quickly figure out why the murders are happening & what the main plot is although nothing comes to light until the end. So to begin with so there is no challenge there. The main female character seems to have a lot of extraordinary talents but can’t seem to handle them when under real pressure. She is in constant self analysis & blame of herself & those around her to a point of becoming nauseating & repetitious. Even after nearly getting killed several times in this book she still plunders on in a cloud of resistance, confusion & inability to stop. (?) She waffles from always believing she is right, getting testy, to having a huge chip on her shoulder. The story line becomes too long & drawn out with the story based on mainly conversational which to me lacks a balanced with what could have been some interesting background narrative. And the relationship between the main female character & the FBI sounds just way too loose, unorganized & unbelievable.
The narrator was pretty good although I could still hear the female tone in the numerous male voices. So in a case where there is a lot of conversation I would prefer a male & female narrator.
What three words best describe Elisabeth Rodgers’s performance?
She was overworked.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
