There is never a dull moment when Jacky Faber is around. Just when you think things can't get worse, they do. There are many exciting twists and turns, but in the end Jacky continues to her next adventure.
An excellent follow up to Bloody Jack. Ms. Kellgren is an outstanding narrator; I felt like I was listening to Jackie herself. I was actually a little peeved at Jackie for some of her decisions, but then in the last third of the book there is a lot happening and I found it difficult to put down. It is a credit to the narrator that I was angry with Jackie and not the author. I highly recommend this book for all ages with the warning that there is some PG13 rated stuff.
I jsut can't say enough good things about this series. I'm smitten with all the close calls and close scrapes Jackie navigates through. Talk about a gal with a heavy dose of bad, and good, luck!
Good book, endearing and deep protagonist in a whirlwind of misadventures. Outstanding, talented narrator, pulling out every voice and accent under the sun and really getting into the emotions of the character.
Best heroine ever!
Every young girl should read the Jackie Faber series. She is the perfect heroine for girls to grow up strong, brave, clever, fearless and beautiful. I wish I had these when I was a girl.
The story just is so easy to follow and listen to we use it to help with the long car trips and it just makes the miles slip by while we enjoy the roads we travel.
Jackie and Amy are a great pair in so much mischief and troubles as they blossom into young women.
Jackie gets Amy to go to the pub with her to work.
There are so many times we found ourselves laughing at the constant antics of Jackie that there is no one time better than the rest.
The story is much better than the first book, and a friend convinced me to try the narration. I'm glad I did. Ms. Katherine Kellgren is probably my favorite narrator thus far. She brings a compelling, dynamic read to the tale. If you like subtle narration, this is not for you, but if you enjoy the narrator getting swept up into the story and characters and bringing you along for the ride, this is for you. I imagine I would have enjoyed e first book much more listening to the narration.
Though frustrating at times, due to all the mischief she gets into, the story is so cute and hard to put down!
The reader is exceptional and really brings all the characters to life. Highly recommended for an easy, feel good listen!
top 25%, in great part because of the marvelous narrator. A definite no-brainer, if that's your mood.
clever pacing up to the end when it kind of falls apart with over the top "solutions." Obviously, the heroine is being set up for a sequel--that's great--but the end still disappoints.
Jackie, of course.
a thrill a minute with no blood or guts or space creatures
Can't say enough good about the narrator.
