yes, because the reader did a superb job.
I liked Jane - her exasperated undertones when it came to dealing with her life in general were just hilariously well written.
She captured the voices of the characters in a subtle way not too over the top
There are several laugh out loud funny moments.
I loved the humor in this book - it made me laugh out loud.
The characters are very likable and a lot of the situations even though fictional have a gleam of real life in them.
The narrator did a great job of capturing the humor within the storyline and gave a great snarky attitude.
I have since read several other books by Molly Harper and have not been disappointed.
Good characters, love the aunt, humor, and the story flowed well.
When her mom, sister, and grandmother come over to take her out to lunch, and the aunt deflects the nastiness.
When she tells her ex-boss off, who doesn't want to do that?
I will read the series.
Yes, Amanda Ronconi's reading is so light and funny. She enhances the book. I've read Molly Harper's books and truly prefer to listen to them because of Ms Ranconi's narration.
The way a normal sedate life can be turned on its head in a night.
I have and this is just as well done. I do enjoy her readings so much I have wish listed book by authors I did not know just to hear her read.
When Jane went back to the library after all her changes.
Enjoy the fun of the material and the joy of the read!
I love books like this! Every once in awhile you just need fluff you can read that you don't have to THINK about, and this book fit the bill. Being from California, I found the southern references hilarious, because we just don't have "rules" like that!
I think the narrator was fabulous with her accents (In my head, I can still hear "Haaaay Shuuuuug!") and the situations Jane finds herself in are just too funny.
All in all, this is a fabulous book! Easy reading, REALLY funny, and an amusing piece of fun literature.
I might listen to this again, but it was almost a rip-off of Charlaine Harris's books.
I liked the humor in the book. It made me laugh.
When she read the book, you feel like it is the character actually speaking.
If you want a book to read for enjoyment and no heavy mental gyrations then this book is for you. It's light and entertaining.
I purchased this book because it was listed under "How Should I use My Credit" and because I love series. This book was a pretty good. It didn't "wow" me, but it was a nice read. I did enjoy the humor. Overall, a good book, but I don't think I will purchase another from this series. I will probably just find it at the library.
This one is indescribable. I was listening with my headphones on and kept laughing out loud making my friends and family wonder about my sanity. The next ones in the series are only funnier. Take a spasticly wise cracking woman with a penchant for getting into trouble and make her a Vampire. It only gets her into more trouble. And she always has something to say even when she should keep her mouth shut. I love this book!
SuseADoodle - "Audiobook Addict!" - Please disregard my "guided" reviews since it appears that a lot of what I wrote has been chopped off.
Single librarian turned into vampire.
Hmmm ... has potential.
I'm not really "into" the paranormal fad but recently have found myself indulging in books in the genre.
My husband noticed this one and brought it to my attention. He thought I might find the book summary just "funny" enough to be interested.
And yes, the summary made it sound like a book with a bit of comedy in it.
Librarian gets pink slip with a gift card to a local bar, gets stinking, has car trouble on the way home, decides to walk the rest of the way, gets mistaken for a deer by a poaching shiner. I mean, that is just all flat out almost "silly" and as the premise for a book, should make for a witty and amusing tale.
I was disappointed.
Sure, she is shot, wakes three days later as a vampire, goes home and sees her dead great-aunt who had left her the house in her will, deals with family members who believe that aunt made a big mistake leaving the house to her, deals with family who believe she needs to get a life and find a new job, and deals with the vampire who made her, deals with vampire politics and intrigue when another vampire is actually murdered and is dead for good, plus deals with an old friend who starts attending a support group for friends of "others."
While I grinned at the turn of events toward the very end of the book, I wasn't impressed enough to bother going any further in the series.
