I don't really recommend Undead and Unwed. I pretty much had to force myself to finish listening to the book. It felt as if I was listening to either a ten-year-old Molly Harper's first novel or an untalented Molly Harper want-to-be. It is not ALL terrible. There were some sentences that made me smile a bit.Some of the problem could be the narrator. I went back and forth trying to decide whether the book was as bad as it seemed to be or whether it was the way the narrator was reading it. I may try reading the ebook to see if it sounds better in my head, but I am leaning toward not purchasing anymore of Mary Janice Davidson's book.
Emotionless, lackluster, & monotone.
If this book were a movie, I might go see it if there was a fantastic screenwriter involved to spice it up. Even the sex scenes were dull.

Hmmm I CAN NOT believe I listened to this book!!! I also can't believe I liked it....maybe! This definitely not my typical read, but it does grow on you. The main character is like Cher from "Clueless" (The Movie) as a newly risen whiny vampire. There is plenty of girlish humor and one liners and just enough of a story beyond that to make it a decent book. I can't decide if I want to move on in the series or not. I have noticed that some of the future books are VERY short (under 5 hours) and that is a huge deal for me and my valuable credits. I think it depends on who you are and what you enjoy reading as to whether you will enjoy this listen. Read the reviews and listen to the sample. For me...maybe one more listen to decide on the series as a whole!
Whats to tell I am your avarage 30something, with kids, a husband, job and life. Besides that I drive a lot and love to listen to books instead of the radio. I will stay up until 3am in bed listening if the book is worth it, and I have also been known to return a couple of books that I could not get threw the first chapter. I am a bad speller so I apoligize for it now, but will be honest about my reviews.
very funny book, not deep with lots of plots and turns or mystery but funny. Read if you want a laugh.
This book wasn't for me. The narrator who was perhaps new at this, not sure, paused in strange places. I'll stick with my favorite vampire comedy romance writer, Molly Harper.
Happiness is a good book!
The narrator got on my nerves but eventually I got over that and was loving the story when out of nowhere it gets uncomfortable with strong sexual language & situations. When it wasn't doing that it was a funny, interesting listen.
Yes, probably. The story is fun and different than the usual vampire fiction.
The voices were fine - differentiating wasn't difficult, but I did find there were a lot more extraneous noises (page turning, heavy breathing, etc) than are typical in most audiobook recordings.
I would definitely recommend this book ... in fact I already have. It is sassy and takes the dramatic vampire story and lightens it up with the great attitude
Betsy of course
I love hearing the intonations and attitude that Nancy brings. My only complaint is her male character voices ... not so good but I tried not to let it bother me too much.
Undead in Style???
Searching for the audio version of book 2 now
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. If you like Christopher Moore's Vampire series you'll love this.
Rude, Funny, Long
Shrill, monotonous, characters???
Alive then Dead
The story itself was ok. Was pretty slow to start. Did not enjoy the swearing. Did not enjoy the narrator.
An avid listener of audio books.
I found this book to be a light and humorous paranormal book. Betsy is funny and I love the sarcastic quips she says to herself and others. I think I'll be listening to the whole series and am looking forward to the break from reality.
