I have been horribly disappointed with this genre overall, and so I avoided this series for months, but I was looking to burn some credits, so I got Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs. It kept me entertained and amused, and I have since purchased the rest in the series and several more by this author/reader combination. They make a good team. The books are funny, and the reader manages to convey that well (some just can't).
I am a die-hard Sookie Stackhouse fan so I was a little leery buying this first book...but I did and am very pleased I did. Before I finished the first one, I bought the next 2 and the 4th one today...since it just came out. Great characters, good storyline and excellent narration. If you are a Sookie/True Blood fan you will love Jane Jameson. I like this series because the undead get to do a little more and the characters aren't quite so violent (yet) and there are little mishaps along the way. Very much lighter than Sookie Stackhouse, but just as whimsical and entertaining. Love the cast of characters and with each novel Jane seems to get into more "situations". Highly recommend all of Jane Jameson Series. Buy them all now because you will want to go onto the next one as soon as you're finished. I could read (listen) to them over and over again.
No it seems me too shallow and boring.
The protagonist was often irritating
She improved the story adding her performance
The sookie stackhouse novels, both are fun vampire series with a southern twist & sense of humor.
Loved the very opening when she dies, sounds morbid, but it really is funny the way Molly Harper writes it!
Molly Harper has a great sense of humour (Canadian spelling). Don't look for anything deep in this series, just good light entertainment, and quite a few laughs. Amanda Ronconi gives the perfect touch of sarcasm and wit in her readings of each character. Nice way to de-stress or just relax after a busy day!
Sexy, quirky, funny
Missy the realtor was a great character. I loved the voice the narrator gave to her. It suited her so well.
I love the way she could embody each character so well. They all had their own voice, and you were never guessing who that was supposed to be talking.
The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars was that in certain points of the book I found myself double-checking to see if the author was a man. Some reactions were a little sexist, but not so much you can't just shrug your shoulders and move on. Overall this book was very very good and I have already gotten the second one on my list.
This was a fun story and had me hooked from the start. I found myself looking for tasks to do so that I could keep listening. I find that's hard to do with an audio book. But Jane's life turning from bad to worse, or from worse to better depending on perception was engaging. Amanda Ronconi brought the books to life. It was so good, that after listening to this story, I downloaded all the others in the series. I can't wait for the rest of her books to be in a audio format.
A switch from many "vampire" type stories. Its fun and enjoyable following the main characters adjust. Molly Harper is fast becoming one of my favorite authors, and Amanda Ronconi is a great narrater. This is on my "must read" series.
Tell us about yourself!
Ein sehr unterhaltsames Buch und leicht zum Hören. Die Geschichte ist nett und ich musste oft auflachen...Amanda hat einen tollen Job gemacht und ich habe ihre unterschiedlichen Stimmen wirklich genossen. Alles in allem ein tolles Buch für den Weg in die Arbeit, zum Aufheitern und leicht zu hören.
Retired high school English teacher. I liked and worked with the at-risk student. Interested in about everything, but I love a good story.
This story is light, funny, and intriguing. I really don't like vampire stories, but this one is an exception. The narrator does an excellent job of promoting the tone of the story.
I'll even read more of this series.
