No really, spare me this kind of book. That sounds mean, but I can't think of any redeeming qualities. Well. . . , it isn't porn, that's good. I hope the writer tries some thing different.
Probably not. Bones's accent by the narrator was annoying, and she spoke too quickly for the main character.
The main character, but she seemed a little flaky.
Not so much, see Previous comments.
The story line was fairly decent; I'm curious about the next book in the series.
The mother-daughter relationship is pretty unbelievable.
I will read the next books if I can get them on my Kindle mainly because I found the cockney accent on a 900 yr old vamp (Bones) to be unacceptable...one would think that in 900 years Bones could have achieved a little polish...no matter his roots when he was human.
Eliminate Kat's whining about her poor mother...and her guilty complex about what she is and concentrate on what she can accomplish for good. And, for god's sake get rid of that cockney accent!
It's all about that cockney accent. The narrator presents the accent perfectly...just would like to hear a more refined sound.
The story line.
I would compare this to the
I am addicted, so much so i am not sure i can wait for my credits each month, i may just have to buy the rest of the books.
This is a great story even if you don't appreciate the genre. The narration isn't too bad BUT the British accent of Bones is absolutely laughable and unbelievable. Such a shame.
An interesting novel. It made for an interesting experience.
The over the top accents were grating. Plus, by using the cockney accent for Bones, a lot of the innuendoes were missing.
This novel starts off better with a solid mix of action and romance--just what you expect. But it goes down hill about halfway through--the minute the heroic lovers descend into sappy declarations of eternal love and little high-school episodes of jealousy or social awkwardness that don't work for their characters at all. Oh, and the male lean needs a new name. Bones is unimaginative and silly.
She conveyed the voice and the sarcastic humor of the heroine rather well, but all the other accents in the dialogue, especially the cockney English of the male lead, were a sin. Just terrible.
The narration was ok apart from the british accent, not sexy British more like Eliza Dolittle before Dr Higgens taught her to be "My Fair Lady". The narrator should have just read it in her own accent it may have been better. It is nearly bad enough to make me want to not listen to any other books read by her.
Have already listened to this twice, just love it. Fresh approach to the subject with a strong (yet vulnerable) lead character who you can't but become fascinated by. It has everything, suspense, drama, romance, hot steamy parts, laugh out loud moments and plenty of action. Picked up a few extra things from the second time, and will without a doubt be listening again.
I was there with the character all the way. The journey was believable (if paranormal can be considered so), and taking the whole vampire thing out, it was also a great love story. I started straight into book 2 I was so hooked once this one ended.
She was able to distinguish the characters really well, making me forget that she was one person reading. Did take me a while to get used to Bone's accent though, at first it felt a little like a pirate vampire....
Your credit will not be wasted, don't hesitate....add to your cart now!
Great, Engaging, & Witty
I loved each of Cat's battles! I liked Stephanie, the college babe who kept a shotgun in her closet used to kidnap and serve up students for rent. Timmy and all the vampire targets were also fun. Don and Tate’s meeting with Cat in the hospital room was a perfect ending or beginning for book II.
Yes, Ms. Gilbert was exceptional in narrating “Enough” by Roger et al., but this was non-fiction, highly informative and meant for a different audience. Her performance reading this vampire story resulted in a search for other fictional books that are narrated by her. I really like her.
Cat's battles to find the blood sucker of her past.
