Great Story Line
wouldn.t. I like how each book reveals a little more about each of the main characters
THE MATRON FROM THE ORPHANAGE - she just sems to be the sort of person I WOULD have tea with!!
Yes I would recommend this. It is well perfomed and a pleasure to listen too.
It always left me guessing what would happen next.
I love all the characters and how she perfoms them.
Love this series and Lisette Lecat is spectacular reading these books. I am hooked.
I started with the first audiobook and got hooked; now I'm about to complete the set. The narrator, Lisette Lecat, is terrific for the series. There's an HBO video series that's also very good, and Netflix has it.
Immigration lawyer in Kansas City. I like Character driven dramas, fantasy (monsters, magic and witches oh my!) and coming of age stories. Favs include: The Book Thief, The Game of Throne series, Harry Potter Series, Dresden Files, Nightside series, anything by Neil Gaimen, 100 Years of Solitude.
Another great book. I really love these characters! The narrator is so great.
Lisette Lecat is an excellent reader who adds much life to the story.
No, because if I changed it to my tastes it would not represent Africa and the African people. To change the characters to my way of thinking would be to dimish them and make them into Americans. These characters have a charm and beauty that is truly African.
Yes, Looking forward to the second half of the series.
She can pronounce the names and places properly. I can't roll my tongue like she does or have the right lilt to my voice that makes the characters human.
Yes, but it probably would be an indie film and shown only on Netflix.
This book is similar to the others in that it was entertaining and personable, but for the first time I found the storyline unbelievable. The transformation of a 97 score in secretarial school into master mechanic and master manager of young men was a stretch. It was as if the assistant had some kind of magical powers. Plus, the portrayal of the lead detective as someone who accidently promotes the assistant to a special position in her fiance's garage seems foolish, and totally inconsistent with her normal ability to maintain control of conversations to achieve her desired ends. Finally, I found the depression of Mr. JLB Mataconi as a phony, pretend storyline that detracted from the character development in the prior novels because it did not fit. Here we have a man who has just gotten engaged and has accepted responsiblity for two special needs children, and now he suddenly abandons his work, and ignores his wife-to-be and these children, and he can't get up the energy to get out of bed. Now maybe, the engagement and responsibility for children could induce depression, but that was not the story line. Instead, the trigger for his depression is never discussed; nor is any mention that this has been an issue for him previously. I really felt like the author was checking "Depression" off his checklist of things he wanted to cover in the various books, and it did not matter that it did not fit.
The beauty contest was also a little shaky as a story line, but it seemed to fit the story better. Despite these weaknesses, the book was entertaining in its way, and I will be moving on to the next installment.
