Good Book, Clean content for the most part.

Would you consider the audio edition of Hooked on Murder to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version.

What did you like best about this story?

Its crochet theme, Not too many cuss words, not too much sexual content. One thing that grates at me in books is when authors use the name of God in vain, this one didn't, or didn't very often, so I was able to listen to the whole thing. I listened to the first of a different series and could not even listen the whole way through because of that. It just grates on my ears and makes me flinch. I know that is not everyone's opinion, but this is mine, and I would choose or not choose a book if this kind of thing was mentioned in a review.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The narrator did different voices, Not as seemlessly done as some other readings I've heard, but it did not put me off either. I will definitlely listen to another book by this narrator if the story interests me.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This wasn't a particularly amusing book, so I didn't laugh or cry. I listened to it because it is a quick, cosy mystery. It is perfect for what I wanted, something with no stress attached. It didn't scare me, but still made me think, "Who done it"?

What made the experience of listening to Hooked on Murder the most enjoyable?

For a change crocheting got to be the star in fiber arts. Crocheting has come a long way since the day of simple afghans, doilies, and scarves although this book hasn't taken it any further than the past. This reader loves to knit, crochet, and tat so happy to see the step child come to it's own.

What did you like best about this story?

The topic

Which character – as performed by Margaret Strom – was your favorite?

I enjoyed all the characters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. The first 3 chapters were not that interesting although introducing all the characters.

Any additional comments?

If you love to crochet, you will enjoy the book. It's a good story with old fashion morals.
