This is such an entertaining, engaging series, full of adventure! The narrator does a wonderful job with ALL of the voices. I am particularly impressed with the fact that her voice as Jackie is consistent, even when Jackie has different accents, and that Jackie's voice is separate from other characters with similar accents -- if that makes sense!
Katherine Kellgren is a fantastic narrator
All other Bloody Jack books.
The songs and various dialects
No, they are just great fun. Other books in the series dealt with deeper subjects. e.g. Slavery and racism.
I love this series, Jackie is a strong and stubborn heroine, not so fond of the boy she is chaseing, he seems insipid to me. Every book has been good. Look forward to every new installment
even my boys love to read about jackie, but be warned she is unconventional and there is some semi adult situations in these books. My Nine year old wants to marry jackie Faber.
Jackie is irrepressable and unstoppable, as usual, but the tension of her and Jamie's unconsumated love is getting old. I found myself questioning the plot more than i did with the earlier books. Katherine Kellgren's performance remains stellar.
I am a fiber artist and teacher. I love moderate action, plot twists, diverse characters and much romance.
I loved best what I have loved about all the other Bloody Jack audio books (2 things actually). First, Jackie, the heroine. Just go meet her; you'll see what I mean, Second, Katherine Kellgren's performance--it's like a one woman radio play. Amazing. Third, (Ok, so I lied when I said 2) L.A. Meyer is just a great writer. Even in the later books when you are pretty sure Jackie really isn't going to really die this time, listening to Meyer's imaginative ways to get her out of things and his accessible-yet-not-insipid-in-any-way style keep you hanging on to every word.
Well, If I told you, it wouldn't be very sporting of me. Trust that there are the usual complement of more-or-less trustworthy navel officers, good friends, fiendish scalawags and pirates to keep you interested.
Brilliant. I cannot believe how consistent she is with her voicing from one character to the next, as well as one book to the next. Lovely singing as well.
Well, it's really more fun than moving, but, even so, it has it's moments.
This really is the reason I joined audible. Our state's digital library only had books 1-7 available, and they said they couldn't get this one (though I notice they have it now), and, man, these are addictive, I NEEDED #8. I see #9 is now available. Off to download it right now. Oh, yes, I am.
A gadabout with no room for heavy books, so love the audio ones.
I love this series ! The narrator has done such a great job! L.A. Meyer puts so much real history in the books, this one was most interesting to look up afterward. Thank you !!
I love this series and I want to keep on reading but I feel like these books keep getting cruder and more vulgar. I'm an adult so I can take it but I would not let kids read this series.
I am sorry to see the author farther degrade the character of Jackie, this book is really scrapping the bottom of the barrel. Being the "pet" of the Chinese woman really was absolutely disgusting. I won't be listening or reading anymore of the LA Meyer's book as they have become too filthy for me, let alone young children.
