I love the Jackie Faber books and have enjoyed each of the books in the series. This one was my favorite since the first in the series. It brings the characters from the Lawson Peabody to the sea and allows for excellent character development, particularly of Clarissa Howell and her friends. The plot is more focused than some of the other books have been and seems to have more new elements than the second and third books in the series did.
This was my favorite book in the Bloody Jack series. I don't know if it was because of the book or the narrator that made it so good. That narrator made Jacky Faber come alive! Excellent!
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 love the stories, the swashbuckling and the fact that women can be strong and do whatever it takes to get where they want to go. Katherine Kellgren is one fantastic story teller and singer.
Thank you to both the author and the narrator for weeks of fun.
I'm getting this series as a present for my early teens granddaughter too.
