Waiting for your hitman - Deathwatch
Deathwatch is well narrated, I was was drawn in by both story and voice that kept me mesmerized. For me a voice needs to fit the story, accents and voice cadence can make or break it. Talmadge Ragan seems to have the right draw in her voice for me.
at times she did seem a bit close to the microphone, but that was not a an issue, nor did it bother me.
I'm still fairly new to audible, however, I would have to say that I would compare this book to the narration of "The Cuckoo,s Calling", as narrated by Robert Galbraith. His voice fit the story as well, and it was full of mystery and intrigue as well.
Talmadge and Robert did not try to over do the different characters voices, which can e distracting. I felt the intensity of the situations in their voices, changes flowed nicely and kept me drawn into the story.
Listening to a good reader can bring the story to life more than reading a book for yourself, it can add depth to the story and experience that may not come into play with reading the book.
When I read and then listen to a book, I just seem to experience more of an involvement sometimes, Talmadge added the depth and intrigue in her voice that doesn't necessarily come into play with reading on my own.
Followed by death
The reading was enjoyable, I did feel like it ended short, but perhaps with a hope for more, like a continuation. I guess I wanted the hit-man to be caught. That's just me, but I can see the potential.
Overall a great book, great read, and great listening experience. I,m looking forward to hearing more of Dana's books in audio, she holds a few spots in my TBR list.
