Description

Burt Reynolds reads three of Robert B. Parker's finest Spenser novels.  

Includes:

Chance - Big-time Boston hoodlum Julius Ventura wants to find his only daughter's missing husband - at least that's how he puts it to Spenser and Hawk, even though it's pretty clear Julius isn't telling the whole truth. Or maybe not any part of the truth. Something about the case appeals to Spenser's passion for justice, and he launches an odyssey into the netherworld of organized crime. 

Hush Money - When Robin Nevins is denied acceptance at an exclusive university, Spenser is eager to investigate. It seems the denial is tied to the suicide of a young gay activist, and as Spenser digs deeper, he is nearly drowned in a multicultural swamp of politics: black, gay, academic, and feminist. Meanwhile, Spenser's inamorata, Susan, asks him to come to the aid of an old college friend, K.C. Roth, the victim of a stalker. Spenser solves the problem a bit too effectively when K.C. turns the tables and begins to stalk him. 

Small Vices - Ellis Alves is no angel. But when his lawyer says he was framed for the murder of college student Melissa Henderson, Alves looks to Spenser for help. From Boston's back streets to Manhattan's elite, Spenser and Hawk search for suspects, including Melissa's rich-kid tennis-star boyfriend. But when a man with a .22 puts Spenser in a coma, is the chance for justice dead?

Editing Bust

I've been a huge Parker and Reynolds fans for years and was excited to see this option. Reynolds famous sarcasm seemed perfect for Spenser. but this was a huge rushed mistake.
The biggest single problem with this is the editing. The chapters are out of order, making the whole process unbearable. It just seems like it was rushed out in order to capitalize on Reynolds death.

Beyond that, I still enjoyed spending time on a trip with an old friend like Spense with a familiar voice. Reynolds performance was not all bad, but at times it sounded like he was reading the material for the first time, with odd pauses that reminded me of Christopher Walken. I do't know when this was recorded, but would assume it was not long before his death.

Due to the poor editing making the flow so bad, I believe Audible owes me a refund. The first chapter is not the first in the book. It comes in four to five chapters late. And there is even one of the chapters of Chance that shows up in the middle of Hush Money. Just sloppy.

Good trio of stories

Burt Reynolds does a passable job as narrator. He is not as smooth as Mr. Prichard, the usual narrator. He does a good job with differentiating voices. The stories are good as always. I have said previously that I would think twice about buying a Spenser book if it wasn't done by Mr. Prichard; I was right but the bargain of three books for the price of one was too much to pass up.

Burt Reynolds IS Parkee

I have always liked BR, however, listening to these books enabled me to appreciate. his skill as a performer. I enjoyed these books very much, and BR's voice infleciadded greatly to these stories. The last one was easily the best. Highly recommend!

Yay Robert Parker

3 excellent Spenser books. Let’s call it a Spenser, Susan and Hawk novel in the end. Nice respite from serious reading.

Burt Reynolds's talents lie elsewhere, far away.

Mr. Reynolds is a fine actor onscreen and onstage, but he is a very, very bad reader. These 3 performances are so cursory and badly produced that they're an embarassment to the company that originally snagged the "name" reader, and should be to Audible, who passes them along without comment.

Reynolds is obviously reading these books for the first time as he's recording them, amateurishly pausing and catching up at odd times where the line breaks on the page. He attempts to give some sort of life to the performance by giving extremely slow and over-articulated readings to certain words that have no relation to to the sense of the sentence or the paragraph. It makes him sould like a drunk.

Plus, he's so close to the microphone that you can hear every lip-smack and breath.

Save your money.

Good with some minor problems

Contrary to other reviews I liked the narration, it fit the characters well. I did not like music messing with the narration in the last book. The navigation through three books and 150+ chapters is cumberskme at best and sometimes the chapters got mixed, but it was not too bad. overall i am happy with this audiobook.

Finally! RBP and Burt Reynolds

I have all of these titles on the original audio tapes. Robert B. Parker was one of my absolute favorite authors especially the Spenser/Hawk series. Wonderful use of language and well-developed character and stories. What a mind!. Burt Reynolds did a fantastic job bringing the characters and the stories to life. Thank you for resurrecting these books and putting them on audio.

too much music!<br />

the music which fades in and out throughout the story is both distracting and overblown for the simple reading of a robber bee Parker tail. it distracts from the story makes it almost impossible to hear at times and changes the ambiance of the book. plus which I thought this was three books not just one?
