Where does Muscle Memory rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Fair to middling. I found myself wanting to keep listening and I am eager to hear the next one. At the same time, there are some aspects of Tapply's style of story-telling that irritate me.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I think I like Brady's secretary Julie best, though she doesn't appear much in this book.
Any additional comments?
I have just binge-listened to all the Coyne books to this point. Obviously I find them compelling. Though it is kind of in a "I keep eating peanuts" kind of way. I prefer Robert Parker and his Spenser and also Phillip Craig and his JW. Tapply has some good elements that remind me of each of those writers. I know Tapply purposely chose to keep Brady romantically footloose from an interview I read years ago. The women therefore end up a bit like Bond women. Also, like any series about an accidental/amateur detective, the writer has to keep coming up with reasons and ways to explain the main character's repeated involvement in solving crimes/mysteries. And the other characters have to keep complaining about it or warning them or whatever. And then the main character starts to seem like a jerk for ignoring them and they start to seem like nags. All that said, I am hoping that audible will soon have the rest of the series so I can binge some more. (Would also love to see/hear the Phillip Craig series and the Brady/JW books too!)
