Both Audio and print were great.
A semi-believable Ghost story.
Her voice and the different characters' voices don't annoy me like many female performing voices do...and I'm a female!
Loved the fact that the street names/stores and even sir names are legitimate here in Charleston.
I have recommended this book to all my friends. I teach middle school Language Arts. We talk about characteristics of Southern Gothic all the time. (I realize this does not fit entirely into this genre). My husband and I go to Charleston frequently.
I loved the history of the old house. The characters were well flushed out.
Melanie Middleton. There wasn't enough description of Jack to know his entire personality.
Yes, or I sure tried.
It would be interesting to perhaps write from Jacks perspective, or maybe from one of the other characters (after you've read Return to Tradd Street.) if you've read this, read Th e Girl from Lagare Street and THEN Return to Tradd Street. Happy reading.
I didn't get to the story, the southern / german / new york / southern / rotating accent narration was so irritating, I ditched the story. Wasted credit!
Spies of the Balkans
Needs to polish up one accent or the other, but can't switch in the middle of a sentence.
Wish I had my credit back
Good story line kept my interest and have listen to it again picked up more of the story
the description of the area
Melly (Melanie) as Jack calls her
wanted the series
I like books but don't want to take the time to sit and read. I prefer longer ones of thriller and mystery.
Not my typical book but did the 3 for 2 and it kept me interested and it wasn't to much girly romance just a bit but I didn't want to smack the main character too many times so...
I have not read the print version.
For me, she gives the characters a 3rd dimension. I have a tendency to skim description and listening to the story being told requires that I also have to listen to descriptions.
I like historical, southern books - southern accents, antiques - The Ole' West, Ghost Towns, Victorian Era, Southern Humor!!
Have listened to all 3 books about Melanie and Jack! Love them all! Can't wait for Karen to write a sequel!!! Great narrator too!!!
Would not try another book from Karen White. Found myself not listening and having to go back during this audiobook which is very rare for me. Story predictable and boring.
