This is one of the best in the series, the next one is good too then it starts to go down hill a little. Just wish she get over Jamie and take one of the better men in her life.
I have been listening to this series in order for a while. The behavior of Jackie, the protagonist was starting to get quite old. While her frustrating self destructive choices in the previous books make for an exciting set of stories, the plot line was getting a tad old. This adventure was not brought on by her oft goofy behavior. As a result, I found this the best story so far in the series. The narrator, as usual was terrific.
I recently listened to an interview by LA Mayer where he said that most of his listeners are young girls. I am make and approaching 50 and have loved all of them so far.
Love this book. It's my favorite out of all of Meyers books. I couldn't put it down! It gets incredible near the middle to end of the book, I was so enthralled!! Kathryn kellgrin did an amazing job as always! Tbh read this one 11 times, call me a nerd
Jacky Faber comes to life once again with a whole new saga! Jacky and her school mates are trapped in the belly of a ship, and the zany adventures continue, despite most of them being confined to one room! It is a testament to the author's creativity that she can craft such a gripping tale with such limited scenery. The characters are all too human and very realistically portrayed. The story of course, isn't plausible, but that's what a great story is all about - making the impossible happen and pull you along in the tale! And well, with Jacky, anything could - and does - happen. A great continuation of a fantastic series. Don't miss it!
I am a fiber artist and teacher. I love moderate action, plot twists, diverse characters and much romance.
This is one of my favorite books in the Bloody Jack series, as it showcases the power of the girls of the Lawson Peabody as a group. I think that is a great lesson for all the young readers/listeners of the book. One reviewer said it was boring meeting all the girls and characters at the beginning, but one of the things I love about this series is that it is about people--not just about Jacky--and each of their individual gifts and challenges. All of the characters are important and the plots could not go forward without the contribution of each.
Katherine Kellgren nails it again; however, I found that I wanted the girls to take over the bloody Bloodhound and be done with it. It was a good story, but it did drag on a bit. Cannot be missed though!!!!!
I practically sobbed near the end of the story. Jacky Faber is one special girl!!!!
