I am a passionate devourer of chocolate and books. I also listen to audiobooks and drink chocolate. When I die, I don't want to be embalmed!
I listened to this book by Molly Harper and Narrated by Amanda Ronconi.
This story is about Jane, a nice librarian who dies and is changed into a vampire. The book follows Jane as she discovers (with the help of her leg-stabbing friend Zeb) some of the new powers and new hazards she has developed since she was turned into a vampire.
I really enjoy Molly Harper's sense of humor. This book has lots of snarky remarks that I totally understand and agree with! I love my paranormal romance with a bit of humor and this book has it. If your looking for a book with Vampires, Romance, and Humor ... this is it!
The author is very witty and her characters have some interesting personalities. I just thought the story dragged. I couldn't even tell if there was a plot for half the book. I found my mind wandering and I'd realize that I missed half a page. Worse though, it didn't even matter if I missed half a page because nothing much was happening.
I wanted to like this more but I won't be reading/listening to any more by this author.
This is the first book in the series and the best. It is light reading and very entertaining.
I had read and enjoyed Molly Harper's Werewolf books so decided to try the Vampire series. Ms. Harper stepped up her game with this one because I loved the book - it was just what I was looking for lite and hilarious. I love Jane Jamison and all her kooky friends and relatives. Her snarky comments and out of left field trivia were extremely entertaining. This one be a 're-read' in my library for times when I want something to make me giggle and laugh out loud.
i have just started the book and i must say the first chapter alone is awesome i love her style of writing, yes it is very comical but if u love sarcasm u will fall in love with Jane she is a mess lol
i'm a big fan of the charlaine harris sookie books, so was hoping for something kind of similar. i found the plot line to this story very easy to figure out and not as exciting as i had hoped. the narrator is great though, and the story was very entertaining, just don't expect anything life changing - when i listened to the first harris book i immediately bought more, but with this one i was happy with the one. the 'how to flirt with a naked werewolf' book was a much better listen in my opinion, also by molly harper.
I love the character Jane, she's a fun & clever girl, with a never ending talent for snark and sarcasim. This is a light take on the paranormal. Very similiar to the Sookie Stackhouse books, but with a PG rating. I laughed out loud many times. each of these books were better then the last. I think the narrator captured Janes personality perfectly. I love Jane and her friends, their fun and unforgetable.
This is a like a lighter, fluffier version of the Sookie Stackhouse series, with a few principal differences- in this series, the "Sookie" character is way sarcastic and enjoyably scatterbrained, and actually gets changed into a vampire by Mr Tall Dark and Handsome. The story is simpler, more wholesome, and without the serious drama. It's very funny, full of predictable Southern charm, and the reader does the various voices admirably. I recommend it if you want the fun of a vampire series without all the heaviness, and don't mind that the "mystery" portion of it is a bit easy to figure out.
The others were right, there are some laugh out loud moments in this book. I found it funny, light, very very creative. The character reminded me of an undead version of Stephanie Plumb, from the Jane Evanovich novels. The only thing, if I had to pick something, is that it got a bit tedious at the end. I heard "what the hell" one too many times. Totally worth listening to if you are in the mood for something fun.
Happiness is a good book!
Loved the story and the narrator, how cool is that? It almost never happens to like them both but this is a winner.
