Cari Mora
Cari Mora | Thomas Harris
From the creator of Hannibal Lecter and The Silence of the Lambs comes a story of evil, greed, and the consequences of dark obsession. Twenty-five million dollars in cartel gold lies hidden beneath a mansion on the Miami Beach waterfront. Ruthless men have tracked it for years. Leading the pack is Hans-Peter Schneider. Driven by unspeakable appetites, he makes a living fleshing out the violent fantasies of other, richer men. Cari Mora, caretaker of the house, has escaped from the violence in her native country. She stays in Miami on a wobbly Temporary Protected Status, subject to the iron whim of ICE. She works at many jobs to survive. Beautiful, marked by war, Cari catches the eye of Hans-Peter as he closes in on the treasure. But Cari Mora has surprising skills, and her will to survive has been tested before. Monsters lurk in the crevices between male desire and female survival. No other writer in the last century has conjured those monsters with more terrifying brilliance than Thomas Harris. Cari Mora, his sixth novel, is the long-awaited return of an American master.

I enjoyed several of Thomas Harris‘s previous novels, and I was eager to pick up his newest work. Two rival criminal gangs are trying to get at a treasure locked underneath an abandoned mansion. I am not a big fan of heist stories, but the central character of Cari, the house-sitter, redeemed this book for me. The criminals, even the most monstrous of them, were not very interesting. Cari has a fascinating backstory and a compelling personality.

Just got added to my TBR. Pile thanks to the 3BookGirls podcast. It's a great, but largely inappropriate, podcast that covers several genres.

Book#60 of 2019!!! The worst of the year so far. 😢😪 So disappointing, I absolutely loved his other books.

mcipher Oh that sucks! I hate what that happens. 2mo
Booknerd2 @mcipher I know. I kept reading, hoping it would get better or the ending would save it. Alas, no such luck. 😪 2mo

I see this book has gotten some mixed reviews. I thought it was great. Not a super fast pace, but always moving forward. I enjoyed the Hannibal series of books. Fans of that series should like this one.

I loved the descriptiveness of the writing. The image of the bird sanctuary island surrounded by trash really sticks with me. The juxtaposition of nature's beauty with man's destruction. I definitely recommend this book. I'm glad I purchased it.

A fun, engaging, and quick read. The characters are vivid and well-developed and the protagonist, Cari, is a strong, female lead that you‘ll find yourself rooting for at every turn. A definite recommendation

Nope.

Pretty sure this is a record for me, but I'm bailing on this one at the 3 minute mark. Why do authors (particularly fiction ones) feel the need to narrate their own books?? 😒 I may pick up the print copy at some point, but I haven't heard much good about this one so probably not. Glad I didn't waste an audible credit on it.

Avidreader25 There are so few authors that can pull that off. Neil Gaiman is the only one who comes to mind. 3mo
KathyWheeler @Avidreader25 Stephen King doesn‘t do a bad job on the books of his that he‘s narrated. 3mo
CoverToCoverGirl Agreed, I haven‘t heard anything good about this one either and listened to the sample on audible and it was a no for me too — just awful 3mo

Traci1 @Avidreader25 he does seem to be an exception. I could listen to him read the back of a fruit loop box and be happy. 3mo
Traci1 @KathyWheeler I don't think I've heard him read any of his. I'd be willing to try it. Funny thing is I prefer authors to read their memoirs, but that's a different thing. Narrating a story with multiple voices is a very specific skill. Harris was just terrible. If it had been his memoir though, I would probably have enjoyed it. 3mo
Traci1 @CoverToCoverGirl I probably should have listened to the sample before I sat on hold for that one. After I stopped it I went and read audible reviews and so many 1 stars saying they were returning it after just a few minutes. So even though I feel sort of guilty at least I know it's not just me. It really is awful. 3mo
Pricel101 I listened to the NYTBook Review podcast- a false positive review! 👎 she explained even hard core fans may not find the “monster” all that scary! 3mo
KathyWheeler @Traci1 Narrating memoirs is definitely different from narrating a novel. I‘ve listened to King narrate Needful Things, Bag of Bones, and The Wind Through the Keyhole and enjoyed all of them. He‘s no Gaiman (who is?), but he‘s good. 3mo
Avidreader25 @KathyWheeler I‘ll have to try one of those! (edited) 3mo
BooknerdsLife I‘m not a big audio books fan but narrator is the key for me! I won‘t continue if the narrator has a terrible, annoying or boring voice🙉 It can totally ruin the book for me 3mo

It was a good story with nice new characters.
Was it worth the wait... Maybe not.
But Thomas Harris comes back with a bang.

Just saw this as I am ordering books for the library. May 2019 release, and it looks like this is the title?? Not sure how many are aware that he had a new one coming out...

CoverToCoverGirl It‘s his first book in about twenty years or so. I heard about this late last fall. There was an announcement in one of the many bookish emails I get from different bookish groups. People are expecting great things, I hope he delivers! 7mo
Librarybelle @CoverToCoverGirl Let‘s hope his readers are happy! 7mo
