What made the experience of listening to Soft Focus the most enjoyable?
What did you like best about this story?
I liked that it was a mystery/love story. I also liked the fact that there was both a man and a woman narrating, it made it more entertaining.
What does Dick Hill and Susie Breck bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?
I love the way both of them read. They bring life to the characters unlike any other narrators. I think some of their personality & creativity comes out in the reading. They are my favorite narrators!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes. I almost did. I just downloaded it yesterday morning and I am already through!

This is one of those books that the narrators raise from ordinary to really fun. I am sure if I had read this first, I would not have enjoyed the broad homage to film noir that this book is half as much. Especially since the book itself is more of a Carole Lombard screwball comedy, than a Robert Mitchum film noir.
Susie Breck's voice goes from smokey to snarky without falling over into a parody of the 1940's dark films her modern day characters are so fascinated by.
Dick Hill is a bit over the top, in this case in a good way. As a business consultant who just wants to get a small research firm on its feet, he could do without the drama, but not without the woman who is at the center of so much of it.
I enjoyed it.
