really liked it

Another case where the audio fails to live up to the print (which was another five star read for me). Joyce Bean is a huge improvement over To Die For's Franette Liebow but it still doesn't rate a 5 star audio performance. Here's a short review from a Speaking of Audiobooks column titled The Funny Ones. Both To Die For and Drop Dead Gorgeous are extremely funny in print and audio.

To Die For by Linda Howard is one of my favorites and quite hilarious as well. Listening wasn’t as funny as reading the printed word since I had to wrap my mind around narrator Franette Liebow’s very southern accent. Its sequel, Drop Dead Gorgeous, is entertaining fun as well and easier on the ears with narrator Joyce Bean. Since both books, featuring the fearless Blair Mallory and extreme hunk Wyatt Bloodsworth, are perpetually reread worthy, I’ve learned to tolerate Liebow’s extreme accent and now enjoy both books in audio format.

In Print - 5 stars
In Audio - 4 stars
