As always Seth Michael Donsky is not a good narrator at all. However, listening to this was one of the only ways I was going to get around to this book. It is a fun tale especially if you think of it in terms of a way over the top screenplay. It plays out in your head like a B Grade thriller with A Grade production values and special effects. You really don't feel much for the characters and you can actually see where everything is headed but it is still a lot of fun to go along for the ride. The books is really sort of 2 parts - first part is sex and crime and then you have a courtroom drama/activity followed by the ending zinger. Have fun, just wish they would have gotten another and MUCH better narrator.
Seth Michael Donsky makes it impossible for me to get into the story. All his characters jumbles together in the same strained, over-emoted whining. I forced myself through 30 minutes or so but had to give up this one.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
would have worked better as a short story
What will your next listen be?
Whatever takes my fancy, S/F, crime, history............
How could the performance have been better?
a slightly younger voice would have suited the story better
What character would you cut from Sex and Violence in Hollywood?
The best friend's gay parents were irrelevant
Any additional comments?
I bought this thinking it would be a murder mystery, most of it was like a badly written teenage angst rant going nowhere. Most of the story is over long and the end is very predictable.
