It took me a couple of chapters to get use to the narrator, but once I did the book was great..Im a big Sookie Stackhouse fan and these books are right up there...I cant wait to get to the next books..

A different reader might help.
Maybe, but I really don't see it happening any time soon.
I can't think of anything I liked about this reader.
Not worth my time.
I listened to the first 3 books in 3 days I couldn't get enough .
I liked the humor of the book and the history behind the house system. I didn't like the lack of action. Though this was a mistake on my part as I thought this was urban fantasy instead of paranormal romance.
My favorite character was Jeff the shape shifter. Loved his geeky wannabe ladies man personality.
no. she had a couple of voices but I had to keep rewinding because I could never get into her reading.
I've listened to other narrators who can draw me into the story Dick Hill and James Marsters come to mind but that didn't happen with this one. With this book I had to download a copy of the ebook from the library and read most of the second half for myself.
I really enjoyed this story. I liked the world Chloe Neill has created. I like the idea of the different vampire houses and watching Merit try to fit her very modern self into the very traditional world of the vampires was a lot of fun. I liked all the secondary characters too and I'm looking forward to continuing the series.
What I didn't like about this audio book was the narration. The narrator was not good at all. She read the book in a very boring manner and didn't do a good job of distinguishing the voices of the various characters. She often put the wrong emphasis on words which made the sentence either not make sense or just took me out of the story. She also pronounced some words incorrectly or in an exaggerated manner which was annoying and also made me notice that some words were used repeatedly by the author (something I probably wouldn't have noticed if I was reading the book). I really should have returned this audiobook and read the book instead -- I think I would have enjoyed the story event more. Needless to say, I will not be listening to the rest of this series!
I read the previous reviews and almost didn't bother with this book / series. The author is very good and the story line is interesting. I like the main characters even though it was kinda hard to get invested in them because the narrator is so bad. Her nasal voice is like fingers on a black board to me. She does little with making the characters unique and at times is so annoying that I found my mind drifting off and not following the story.I will have to think long and hard before spending credits on the second book to listen to. I may just get the print version so I can follow the story.Where is Tavia Gilbert when you need her!!!
The narrator is just plain hard to listen to. Sorry to see that it is the same one for the next several books.
The story; Yes. The narrator; NO
I enjoyed the book immensely. It was a fun take on a vampire story but the narration was blah. I hate to criticize the narrator but every voice sounded the same. I will probably read the rest of the series unless they change the narrator.
defently yes it is a great book to be said at the least cant wait to get into the rest of the series
when she defended the house
the whole book had me wanting more
i defently recommend this series if you like vampire,s
Seth like books. Books make Seth think of places Seth would much rather be. Dragons better than cars. More dangerous, but better.
I love urban fantasy. And its that love, and the fact that Chloe Neill is a local author that made me want to give Some Girls Bite a try. Unfortunately, that's all it gets. I'm aware that the series has continued far on past this book, which means it either gets better, or its just not what I'm looking for in my urban fantasy.
I'm good with the premise... Girl gets turned, has to adjust to her new life as a vampire, hijinx ensue. Unfortunately, the girl in question never really made me believe that she was vampire warrior material. She went from being weak academic to 'warrior' too fast for it to be believable and was more than a little too whiny. "Mary Sue" is pretty much the perfect way to describe it. Now, I might be able to let someone talk me into continuing the series but I'd have to be absolutely assured of it getting great down the line. The start of a series is where you really have to grab someone by their ears (or eyes, but those are hard to really get a good grip on) and drag them forcefully into your world. This just didn't do it for me.
Dramatic, intertaining, and funny!
I hadn't listened to any of Cynthia Holloway's other performances. At first I wasn't sure I liked the style of reading, but the story wouldn't have the same affect if she read it anyother way! I really liked it!
I liked it enough to listen in one sitting, but didn't have the time to dedicate to a 11 hour and 10 minute listen! Perfect for a snow day!
