Audio Files-- W is for Wasted by Sue Grafton


W is for Wasted (Kinsey Millhone #23) by Sue Grafton

The Story:

If you haven't read this series it's pretty fun. It's set in the 80s but being written currently. So no cell phones, internet, etc. It's kinda trippy sometimes but a good time. Kinsey is an investigator and always getting pulled into strange cases. This time a dead homeless man that somehow has ties to her and may have been linked to a shady medical program. I always enjoy Kinsey. She's blunt and has a bit of a give-no-fucks attitude but she cares for those people who are in her circle and for finding the truth. The mystery was decent and while not too difficult to figure things out it was still fun watching it all piece together. On the romance front a few past love interests make appearances but nothing romanticky happens. Just passing story points and characters. Maybe one day she'll find her guy. The story did drag a little bit but I'm not sure if that was the story or having done it on audiobook since this is my first time reading one this way.

The Narration:

I enjoyed the audio. This was my first time listening to Judy Kaye and I think she did a good job. She has a gruff voice but really it suited Kinsey and her attitude/personality well. I'd listen to her again. It was a long narration but Kaye kept me entertained and going along as I cleaned. I usually listen at 1.25 speed but for a change listened at regular tempo which suited her voice/pacing well.
