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.
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.
