I love this book. It's witty, fun and interesting. I first read it shortly after it was first published and recently downloaded it when it was on sale. The narration choice to make the Animals all sound like prepubescent boys was a bit jarring. It was like listening to a story about the Goonies. Jody sounds like a mature, sensual woman while Tommy sounds like a 12 year old with a sniffle problem. I wasn't able to buy in to them being hopelessly in love in spite of their "differences". Still a great book and the narration didn't absolutely ruin it but it did make it difficult to really get in to.
Christopher Moore is great. Susan Bennett makes his work fantastic.
I would be driving along in my car laughing at the terrific combination of the these two artists.
This is probably my sixth or seventh Christopher Moore book. He is a fantastic author, and his stories are all wonderful. All but this one. I think this must be a very early book. The story is not good and the performance is not good either. I constantly recommend his books to friends, but I'm seriously considering asking for a refund on this one.
HA! This book reminds me of one of a movie spoofs except in book form. The characters were ridiculous & the book was weird but it worked because I didn't exactly hate it. The boy; C. Thomas Flood was so naïve & childlike that he made me roll my eyes & laugh
Reading is my favorite past time.
The story was really good but the voice ing wasn't.
The beginning when she was discovering what she has become. And her first blood drinking.
No I'm sorry but Susan was a bit on the flat side and each character sounded pretty much the same.
I would have been a better read on paperback.
The cover art for the book is pretty dark considering the book itself is not at all gory. This book is a little jaunt into the supernatural with plenty of comedy interspersed.
Yes. He has a great sense of humor and told a pretty interesting story considering its been told a million times over before. It was campy and fun.
The narrator was really good and the writing as well. Its not Shakespeare or anything, but its a fun story.
Love to read!
At first I thought this book had some potential, but it never really went anywhere. Both of the main characters were idiots (especially Tommy) and seemed to get dumber in every chapter. The title says "A Love Story," but neither character seemed to particularly like one another. There were a couple of quirky funny parts, but that is about it for the positive aspects.
The narrator was okay and did the best she could with the material.
Frankly, I wouldn't recommend this book. The narrator has a whiny quality.
I love Christopher Moore's witty sarcasm, but the narrator was unbearable.
The narrator of Divergent, Emma Galvin.
Every Christopher Moore book has good qualities, they are laugh out loud funny.
I gave up after less than an hour.
I am a single mother of four wonderful children. This is my way to escape from loud crazy kids and work. It makes the work day go by faster.
Yes this book was time well spent. I listened to the whole book at work and had to finish the last chapter when I drove home.
Jody was my favorite character in this book.
I loved the whole book however my favorite part was at the end when tommy incased Jody in the bronze and drilled holes min the ears so she could hear him talk to her and then she came out in some kind of fog or smoke. I cant wait to get the next book.
If there were more then just a couple of books in this series then yes it would be great as a show. As for the stars tom play the part idk who that would be...
Love vampire books and this is a great one.
I'm not usually a reader of this genre......well I've NEVER read this genre. The only vampire books that I've ever read are Dracula and The Historian but I saw this a daily deal and the reviews were good so I figured what the hell. I'm glad I bought it. I listen to books on my daily commute and the test of a book for me is, "do i want to sit in the driveway when I get home and continue listening?"
This book is funny. Laugh out loud funny.
