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!
If you are looking for a great narrator, this series is what you are looking for. Katherine Kellegren is absolutely fantastic. Her cockney accent is spot on, and all the voices for the different characters are very distinguishable.
Story and narrator.
The intellegence of Jackie.
Pretending to be a ghost in the graveyard
Totally kept me interested.
i absolutely love this audio series. Here i am a 43 yr old truck driver listening to a story for young girls, about a girl finding her way in life. I have to say I LOVE IT. The Characters are so fantasticly written. Katherine has such an awesome range in her voice acting. I drive 400 miles a day and with this story i don't even notice.
The singing drove me nuts but overall I enjoyed the book. The main character does have a tenancy to get on your nerves but the supporting characters help that. It's a perfect book for a long drive.
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.
