Yes. The narrator is awesome! She brings acting back to the charactors. Adding to their personality.
The main charator. The spin events keep you guessing and if you listen to it a secound time you pick up even more stuff that you might have missed the first time.
I have this whole series and i love each book!!
Yes!! I was laughing so hard that I had to pull my vehicle over because I had tears in my eyes.
'Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men' by Molly Harper is the second book in a humorous, fun series about a young vampire woman learning about functioning as a young adult vampire in a human world. Jane has a boyfriend who is vampire who is hundreds of years old, her best friend is engaged to a werewolf girl, a job in an old occult bookstore, and an undead aunt who lives with her in an old historic home in an old Southern town. This second book in the series which is told in first person voice mainly concerns itself with the engagement and the families of Jane's friends, a werewolf and a human. I enjoyed this book. I recommend it to all who enjoy reading humorous books with vampires and werewolves. The narrator, Amanda Ronconi, did a very good job.
yes, you always forget something or miss something, a good book should always be read at least twice.
I really like this whole series. shame that it ended .... I read it too fast. :)
Wedding - family - nightmares. Mama Ginger is hysterical and her character is developed and honed to a "t.". Harper successfully makes you hate and pity her selfish anitcs, but at the same time, makes you wonder why on earth anyone, son, or daughter-in-law-to-be, would take her "BS." But perhps that is just the southern way. And that applies to Grandma Ruthie too as she is an insufferable hypocrite. It was nice to get to know Zeb better and see him mature in his relationships with Jane and his mother. Gabriel is in more of a supporting role in this installment which made me sad. You have to LOVE his naive yet macho charisma, as infuriating as he is.
The reader can guess where the story is going, but it does have a twist with respect to the groom, just not a cliff-hanger ending. Still, it was funny and allowed the story to set up nicely for the next installment. It was good to see justice done to certain derserving characters!
The sharpness of Harper's billiant sarcasm. It is perfect - her timing, intonation, and , as another listener said, her "snarkiness" at all the right places. I haven't read the books but my guess is that the narrarator makes the story seem plausible, like it could happen, like there are really girls like Jane and guys like Zeb and Gabriel (I wish!) out there living "normal" lives.
Oh, definitley laugh! But I also groaned a bit as Mama Ginger's ploys continued incessantly (esp. the baby drive-by and wedding shower), without Zeb putting his foot down.
This 2nd installment is wonderful, but I thought it wasn't quite as good as #1. The reader is better prepared for the humor, writing style and one-liners such that you don't get quite as many laugh out loud parts.The romance between our fav vamp Gabriel and Jane still drives us crazy in fits and starts. Harper teases the reader and continues to build our anticipation for more clousure between the sire and his child/lover. And out of nowhere, we see a true and realistic relationship developing between Dick and those who might be his only friends out there.
The characters were original and had their own personalities that were appropriately broadcasted by the narrator. I also enjoyed the fact that the relationship between Gabriel and Jane wasn't picture perfect.
Andrea - Sometime the only unsupernatural voice she was very funny and blunt.
Professional female with little time for the fun things (cooking, reading and traveling)!
I like Amanda Ronconi's voice, I really do. But, this book is just... whiny. Parts of the book move really well and other parts are like nails on a blackboard. I think there is just too much "Jane in her head". Ms. Harper just hasn't made me care about most of these characters and I'm willing. This is escape literature for me; so, although, I'm almost finished with it, it is a chore. I will keep trying though...
A story with some surprise, I would have been great for my 12 yr old daughter
if they would have left out the steamy sex.
Don't think so. At least not in this series. I have listened to one other book from this series
it was ok ther was a story line with some mystery. I was only 6.95 as was this one. this one was not even worth 6.95 and I sure would not use a credit on it.
No problem with narrator. She was the best part of the book. I would not have made it as far in the book as I did if it were not for her
All of them.
This books continues with Molly Harper's dry sense of humor from book 1 of this series. Jane Jameson deals with her best friends erratic behavior as his wedding draws close (thanks to his interfering mother), her sire/boyfriends strange cheating-like actions, her Grandmother Ruthie's new fiancé (who is more than he seems) and her relationship with her sister and mother. It definitely kept me chuckling throughout the book.
The audio versio may be a tad bit better then the print because her character vioces might be a little better than the ones in my head.
Jane. Hilarity ensues around her or because of her.
The book made me laugh out loud leading me to explain the story to the people around me.
Definately start at the first book, I tried it on sale after looking for something to uplift my down spirits. It was so hiliarious that I HAD to buy the rest of the series.
