In one book Molly Harper has entered my favor author list. Loved the humor in this book. Not only will I follow the adventures of Jane in subsequent books, but the sub-characters can easily stand on their own. Amanda Ronconi's narration is delightful. Harper and Ronconi are an unbeatable combination!
Molly Harper has endowed her main character, Jane, with a quick dry wit and believable personality, making this an extremely enjoyable story. Despite having read most of the other authors in this genre, I found that I was not tempted to draw comparisons with other vampire lore or story lines as this book is more than capable of entertaining from it's own perspective. In a nutshell, this heroine is not perfect, she sticks her foot in her mouth more often than a politician, refrains from declaring undying love to the hero of the story, even if he is drop dead gorgeous, and is over the age of 18 (meaning that sex scenes don't suddenly stop at the neck), who happens to have unreliable telepathic skills and has conversations with the ghost of her great aunt. Jane is a heroine I can really relate to (I'm a ghost tour guide with unreliable telepathic skills, if you're wondering). This book was so funny that I started playing it again as soon as it concluded. A terrific book with great narration by Amanda Ronconi. Buy it and laugh!
The author has an excellent sense of humor and the narrator is pretty good. The main character's constant sarcasm got a little annoying but most of all Jane the main character reminded me of the main character in Patricia Brigg books. By the way I love Patricia's books. As a matter of fact the character in this book's man, or the one who turned Jane, the main character into a vampire, is similar to the werewolf in the Brigg's books. So to summarize, this book is enjoyable however, I hope the author makes Jane more vulnerable.
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!
I love books, it's my great escape.
I loved it and had a lot of LOL moments. I am so glad I discovered this author, she knows how to tell a story, make you laugh and add some steam to the story.
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.
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.
