Good Book Ruined By an Awful Narrator
- Me & My Girls "Thanks and respect to the women that served and paid a high price. You are still gorgeous Shi; your scars make you even more beautiful."
Good story, voice is very different
I have really enjoyed Michael Pritchard's reading - I think he captured the dry wit of Robert B. Parker's writing. This reading makes Spencer sound more like Philip Marlow and I was not comfortable with the change. The witty remarks did not come across as well.
Yes, but Spencer is not Philip Marlow. The reader lost the dry humor of many of Spencer's lines.
