What would have made Final Sins better?
The villain is a German serial killer who subjects the listener to his endless philosophical psycho babble. This is made more intolerable by the narrator using a faux German accent that sounds like the Count from Sesame Street!
I regret being so critical because I am usually a Michael Prescott fan. But the awful accent of the villain and the one dimensional characters made this audiobook a major disappointment!
Would you ever listen to anything by Michael Prescott again?
Yes! He is a good writer but was sure "off his game" with this stinker!
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Worst German accent for the villain and his naïve girlfriend sounded like a Valley Girl on a bad day!
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Disappointment and a slight cringing at the narration.

Would you listen to Final Sins again? Why?
Probably not. I loved the narrator but she has one fatal flaw that disturbs the listening experience. She uses a hard G when speaking. For instance, instead of saying ring, she says ringa, blinga, etc. You are right in the midst of a great part of the book and out comes that little hard G. I just found it distracting. It's up to you to decide if it is a fatal flaw.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Loved the plot. Kept me very entertained and really made me listen.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
If you like serial killers with your cereal, you'll love this book!
Really enjoy this author. The characters are human and believable and the story line has multiple twists. I think the ending is what many of us would do, or at least like to do, in the same circumstances.
I do relate to the two principle characters and their love hate relationship makes the listem just that much the better.
