more humor than i expected. made the story that much better. a little slow to start but got up to speed quickly. loved how the narrator clearly depicted each voice so well and distinctly:)
totally recommend this book and i will continue to read Carrie's books:)
I won't proclaim that this book will change your life in anyway, but if you are looking for a good light listen about werewolves mostly, with a few vampires thrown in, this one is a good one. My favorite parts were the actual radio show sections, I really enjoyed the calls and responses from Kitty.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
From the discription I thought this might be good, but I could barely finish an hour of listening. I hated the main character she was whinney and snively. And to me the sex scene was basiclly rape. Not my idea of a good story. After only one hour I have vetoed this auther for life.
I purchased "Wolfbane and Mistletoe" a while back and Ms Vaugh's character of Kitty Norville, was in one of the short stories. It was really good, so I thought I would start listening to the series. This first book didn't disappoint, I know I will be purchasing the books in this series. I'm so glad that Audiable offers Anthology's, we get to listen to both authors we know and learn about new ones. Can't wait to get book 2.
I expected so much more. There was too much of a dominance theme in this book. Sorry I just can't see this I personally found that theme very disturbing. I got this book because book 2 had a high reviewer rating and I don't like to come in mid series so I purchased this one first. Won't be purchasing the sequels.
I'm afraid I agree with Andrea of Canada that these characters were pretty one-dimensional and the werewolves were so, well, wolf, that I had a hard time relating at all. I needed more human elements, less dog.
And the instant acceptance of werewolves and vampires without any difficulty or doubt seemed forced and artificial.
The radio talk-show format left me cold because I didn't care about the callers who were just that...callers.
I liked Carrie Vaughn's first book in this series. Marguerite Gavin, is an excellent narrator which dramatically increases the enjoyment. I am going to listen to the next book in the series and hope Audible carries the rest of the series. It was great fun to listen to Carrie Vaughn's story "Kitty and The Midnight Hour."
I recomend this book, it is a great adventure story.
When I first saw the listing, the title led me to think this would be "fluff" - I am glad I took another look and decided to listen, as I really enjoyed this book! Don't let the title fool you - this is a great supernatural Sci Fi read!
Maguerite Gavin is a great narrator - love her on the Kim Harrison "Witch for Hire" series - and she didn't let me down as Kitty.
I just finished The Midnight Hour, and I am already downloading the second book! Looking forward to Kitty's next adventure!
Almost Chick Lit. Has sociological study value. The narrator is perfect for this reading. I think one of the better values available in audible.
