Every book I pick up lately.
It's like the author needs some filler so the characters have the longest, most descriptive sex imaginable. Do you remember every moment? Cause if you do, you're doing it wrong. It's not supposed to be like a baseball game's play-by-play.
'Gone With The Wind', it's a brick of a book. You know Scarlet and Rhett have Bonny but do they have to tell you how that happened or do the few steamy embraces give your imagination enough content?
I gave up on the Merry Gentry series because it was a good plot in the beginning, then it turned into sex and how many words you can throw into it to make it go on, and on, and on. Let's throw in kinky, with other kinds of beings: vampire, fae, changelings, demons, angels... uhm. ENOUGH.
I hate movies where regardless of danger the characters decide to have a long meaningful talk while something is eating the population, or the time on the bomb is ticking down, or some other ridiculous event is happening. They took that stupid plot device, and put in sex, as often as possible with any and all characters. It's become like a competition between authors of just how kinky and long they can make it-is there a contest on how many pages they can drag it on through?
Give us a story, not a porn flick.
This book kept me on my toes and the characters are wonderful, but it wouldn't be the same without the wonderful reader you have found for us all.
I haven't listen better book since the time of Twilight.
The narrator doesn't bother me at all, indeed I love her British accent.
Can't wait for next credit!!!!
This definitely has a Buffy (The Vampire Slayer) hooks up with Spike feel. The beginning seemed very childish, although the scene and topics weren't. Midway it did seem to get better. Narrator won't be on my favorite list but she's not on my avoid list either. Will give book 2 a chance to change my opinion.
I am thrilled with Jeaniene Frost's books and I cant seem to get enough of them.. The narrater Tavia Gilbert does a fabulous job of making you feel like you are sitting and watching a movie not listening to a book. I highly recommend the Night Huntress World and The Night Huntress Series. Just love them. A very satisfied listener.. :)
Sure it may be very 'Buffy & Spike' but thats not all bad. I liked this book! Loved the story, loved the characters and the concepts of this urban fantasy are awesome. But the big seller is the narrator - one of the best narrators i have ever heard. Ms Gilbert's narration sold me on getting the whole series and I have loved everyone.
The author thinks her characters are charming and witty, but they are not! She's cleary copying the Spike and Buffy model and it is very annoying and unoriginal. The narrarator is almost as bad. All of the characters that are British have a horrible Cockney accent, Cat is the only semi-normal voice (and it is just grating) her mothers and grandparents are bad on an entirely different level! I believe it is South Dakota with a twange of uneducated. The only reedeming bit of it was the passion! I can't believe I'm going to write this, but I've read far better Fan Fiction.
How do these people get published?
I love love love to read. Any chance I get I read.
When I read what the story was about I was excited I purchased the audiobook and could only listen to maybe 1 hour of it. The Narrator was HORRIBLE in my opinion. I could not get past the Irish accent she used for one of the main characters. I kept picturing him as the pirate from spongebob. I did not download the second part or listen to the rest of the first. I will probably buy the book and read it myself though.
It took a while to get into because the way the narrator does Bones's voice sounds like he should look more like Gollam than the hot vampire he's supposed to be. I started substituting narrator's voice of Bones (yes in my head) w Paul Bettany's (in my head I think Paul would make a fantastic Bones)!!! I'm completely hooked!!!! This series is dangerously addictive!!!
Too much romance novel...and the accent was, indeed, bad. Slogged through a couple hours of the thing and went to the end. Thought it would be more like the Kim Harrison novels, but it is soooooo....not.
