Addicted to Audible.
I love this series and have enjoyed all the books! This is horrible! They switched narrator and publisher! It just isn't right and the weird music going in and out made it worse! I didn't finish this and bought the book! I will finish the series w Audio as when I looked foward this is the only book that was switched!
This audiobook is tied for the best in my collection, sharing the spotlight with Vattas War.
Kim Harrison slips little explainations into her books that fill in details, and interacts with, her earlier works. Outlaw Demon Wails goes well past little explainations and broadsides the reader (or, in my case, listener) with a number of OMGs. It is impossible to name only one such incident as 'best'.
I discovered the Hollows on Sirius Radio and bought the audio download after missing a few episodes. Ms Morgan and gang have kept me awake for many miles of boring road, and each new book is more captivating than the last. Several times I drove past my intended exit because I wasn't ready to hit the pause button. Tonight I will be downloading book seven, two weeks before my budget says I can.
The story is the usual top notch.
They changed narrators for this books, and since I've been listening to them and am used to the pronunciation of the other, the new woman takes a lot of the fun out of the book because she doesn't pronounce anything the same way.
I would go see any of these made into a move if they did them well, but somehow I think they'd just make it cheesy.
Let's hope they don't change the narrator again, Keep with the original, makes those of us that listen to the entire series able to pay attention more instead of being distracted by silly things like "why is she saying the name THAT way?"
The story was as always great. The ongoing stuff that Rachel gets herself into is always a laugh in it's own right.Its also comforting to know her friends will have her back and get her out of the most hair razing jams she gets into.
I have been hooked on the subject of magic and witches since I was a kid this just added to love all the more. Each book is like my Halloween dream come true.
yes very interesting and very insightful by how she keeps her readers guessing about the fate of the caricatures.I always hate when the books end and I have to wait to get the next one.
The narrator was not the greatest. I missed Marguerite Gavin and what her voice brought to the different caricatures. Ivy with her lusty voice Jenx and his don't give a dame attitude and Al boy she sure knows how to do him well. Plus how Marguerite pronounced the different names. Gigi lacked the skill for the different voices after a bit they all sounded the same.
I will be heartbroken when this book series will be completed,I will be hard pressed to find another series to fallow faithfully as I have done with this one, Kim keep up the great work.
Story is great. Why did they change the reader? Margruite does so much better.
no way....at least not for a substitute for someone else
I listened through the entire performance because I am aware that any further books in the series will most likely refer to this one, which is one of the reasons I like long running story lines.
This story includes the familiar characters and settings that the listener has grown accustomed to while not getting so caught up constantly in the pain/blood/sex attractions, which was beginning to drag on the overall story in my humble opinion.
I understand that each performer has their own nuances, but if you pick up a long on-going story line, you should at least try to pronounce proper names the same as they have been established in previous volumes. Beyond that, it is, and always has been pronounced "LAY lines" not "LEE" lines, both in the previous stories and everything else I've ever heard.
I've been listing to all the Hollow's books I love them but Gigi Bermingham ruined this one. I can't believe they let this book get out. Gigi pronounces names wrong, and most her voices sound the same.
Marguerite Gavin needs to redo this one. Glad she's back for the next book
Yes I would have it re recorded with Marguerite Gavin as the narrator. It was way too difficult to switch from Marguerite to Gigi after 6 books. Gigi changed the way the characters names were pronounced and while I understand she perhaps wanted to make it her own, she had to take into account that after listening to 6 other books where the characters names and voices were already trained in our ears - it made her "new" style simply awful. I usually relish in these books as if enjoying a good cup of coffee but I found myself just looking forward to the end of the ook. Gigi's voice was so false and she made Rachel sound like a nagging brat and Jenk's voice - forget about it - it was as if she sucked down helium. I would NEVER buy another audio book in the series that was narrated by Gigi. I LOVE the Hollow's series but it was a waste of money and not worth the drone on my ears!
Yes - I had no idea how Rachel was going to get Trent back from the ever after!
NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not even for free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No brainer here - YES! The series must continue!
What would it take to get the book re recorded by Marguerite Gavin?!!
Why would you use one narrator to read your first five books and then switch. Not only was the narrator switched, but characters names were pronounced so differently from the previous books that at one point I thought another person had been added. I had a very difficult time listening to this book and was disappointed because of the narrator.
The problem with this audio book was the narrator. The young woman who read this book made it clear that she had never listen to Ms Gavin's wonderful performance of Kim Harrison's novels. For the first 1/3 of the story Rachael sound at least to me like a bratty valley girl and Jenks sounded like a one of the chipmonks. This turned me off to start. Then as the young woman continued on she miss pronounced many of the characters names. This truly amazed me that no one stopped her and corrected her. I don't understand why Audible doesn't seem to get that the fans of these authors and their works are willing to wait until the narrators who have brought these character to life are free to continue reading for us. I will no longer buy audio books where they substitute narrators. This is the second book they have ruined on me in the past year. Maybe if enough fans do this they will get the point and stop.
The story was wonderful. I love the way that Ms. Harrison continues to evolve her characters. You fall in love with each of them while she paints a picture a picture of a world you would love to live it. My favorite part of this book was the description of the demon world and the small glimpse of their culture. I only wish there was more about Rachael and Ivy's relationship.
As I've said she had no feel for the material she was reading and worse she couldn't pronounce the names of half the characters.
