Off More Men!! We Review the Reviews of "Desperation in Death" by JD Robb
Here we go, everyone, with our We Review the Reviews episode for “Desperation in Death”!
Since this is such a new book, there’s not the amount of reviews to choose from that we have with other titles. Still, we find some doozies.
Our first reviewer found this book to be the “most unpleasant of all the books.”
Several reviewers find the book formulaic, yet somehow not?
And Eve hasn’t grown at all since her past “shows up in every. single. book.” and she needs to “get a shrink.”
Someone who wants to know why people have to ask permission from Eve to go into her office and make themselves a cup of her coffee
“Robb’s writing is spot on” but somehow the book was “bland and a little disappointing.”
One reviewer from Australia charges that Eve: “handed the defence a gift in this?? Assault during an arrest and violation of rights??” AJ takes that comment and goes off on a rant about actual US laws regarding use of force for police, and we go point by point describing the takedown of Iris Beaty, showing how at no point did Eve violate Beaty’s rights according to US law.
As we always do, we found a few reviews that praise Susan Ericksen, and one who says: “I hope Nora Robert’s is aware of how fortunate she is to have such a fantastic narrator doing her work such justice.” (She Does).
We read a great review that states “the series is still so fresh, the characters engaging and entertaining, storyline gritty and suspenseful.” And end with one who says the book was “Another Grand Slam AGAIN!!!”
We had fun with these reviews, and we hope you have fun listening to them!
