Before listening I couldn't envision how a story in which the main character can see dead people would make for a good murder mystery. Well, that just tells you something about my own lack of imagination. In this book, seeing the dead gives the main character a lot of insights, but by no means makes solving the crime straightforward. It also makes for a different kind of human interest and humor. This turned out to be a very enjoyable listen with a bit of everything: scary moments, very funny bits and even a sort-of-dead love interest. I've already picked up the next few in the series.
Funny Ghost Whisperer
her spunky-I-Don't-Give-Sh-t Badass nature makes her a great heroine
More or less yes she was very good; male voices were annoying at first but you get used to it
Ghost Whisperer Meets CSI Meets Romance Comedy
Charley Davidson is a fun and dynamic heroine with a few extra tricks up her sleeve - she is a grim reaper, but not in the bad way, as she'll tell you herself. Tight, well thought out plots, subplots and back-story are interwoven together with style and ease. Add a cast of supporting characters, a very readable narrative style, and did I mention Charley's smarmy humor and attitude?
Well worth it!
Fanatic reader who loves listening to audible files while getting things done.
I wouldn't recommend this book. The storyline has promise but I'm 1/2 way through the book and feeling like it's not going anywhere. A good audiobook makes it impossible for you to not listen - meaning you will do anything to keep it on, including scrubbing the bathroom again. This story is appealing but it's dragging along so I'm not inclined to finish it. The orator does a good job, though.
I don't know if this is a good book or not because I could not get past the speech pattern of the narrator. She has this very strange inflection pattern in which she does not modulate her voice at the end of sentences. Sometimes she has her voice rise at the end of the sentence, and sometimes her voice stays the same as during the middle of the sentence. I found this so distracting that I became unable to pay attention! I think that this would have been a good series so I am going to read this book instead of listen to it. It really hit home for me how important the narrator is to the whole process of enjoying an audio book.
Not possible. Even the best narrator in the business - which this book had - couldn't save it.
No. She didn't finish the first book. Left you hanging
Everything! She is the best in the business!
No way to fix it...
THIS HAS ALL THE GOODIES - SUPERNATURAL BEINGS, SMOKY SEXY, YET SOME BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS DEALING WITH DEATH AND ANGELS AND HOW THE DEAD MAY CROSS OVER TO THE GOOD SIDE.
THE CHARACTERS REMIND ME OF JANET EVANOVICH STEPHANIE PLUM SERIES - THE WACKY SIDE KICK, THE WAY THE HEROINE USES HUMOR TO DEAL WITH HER INABILITIES, AND SPECIAL ABILITIES. YET SHE ALWAYS KEEPS GOING TO HELP OTHERS.
SHE MAKES THE CHARACTERS COME ALIVE WITH VARIOUS VOICES AND REFLECTIONS. I USUALLY TRY TO LISTEN TO ANY BOOKS SHE READS AND SO FAR HAVEN'T BEEN DISSAPOINTED.
The main character being a grim reaper seemed new and different to me. I really like the characters and the concept seemed fresh and new to me. I liked this story enough to get the next book but it wasn't one that made me compulsively listen every free second. The narrator was overall good but was jarring at times. One of the characters came across to me as mannish when she definately wasn't a man. Overall, I like the book.
I have been going through Jeanine Frost withdrawl. I have spent too much money and listened to other books in this genre but have yet to find something that is even half a good as J.F"s books...Until now the content of this book is smart, funny and most of all entertaining. Lorelei King does a wonderful job with her narration. Her voice was nice to hear compared to the many "smoker" type voices in this genre. At last another aurthor I can count on.
