I enjoyed this book, as much for the reader as the story itself. The reader has a good vocal range and the ability to inject humor into her reading. The story idea itself is original and entertaining. Both author and reader come off as very bright and funny. I would recommend it to anyone looking for something engaging that will make them laugh.
This is my favorite kind of story. A strong, sarcastic female protagonist. Some steamy parts. All wrapped in an engaging mystery/detective story.
This series ranks right up there against Janet Evonavich and Nora Roberts. Series is fun and entertaining. The pemiss is different and keeps you guessing. The books have a story line that is intriguing and keeps you interested to see what happens next. The reader, Lorelei King, has a great voice . She makes every character in the story different and unique which adds a lot to the enjoyment of each book. Main character is funny, sensitive, brave, and thoroughly female. And has a job; or two; so unique you have to find out for yourself. Can't wait for the 4th book in this series from Darynda Jones.
only 3 words?
Hot Stuff, Incubus.
The Flame and the Flower by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss
she has a nice voice to listen to & she did all the different characters very well
Hot Stuff, Incubus.
The High Adventures of The Grim Reaper.
I liked the way it was written in the first-person, with lots of little rabbit-trail-side-thoughts
--- just the way I think too, sometimes. Very humorous.
It's one of my favorites.
Odd Thomas...they both see dead people.
I laughed a lot.
Can't wait for the next ones.
The story was fun, but tried way too hard. Whenever there was a choice between the story and a smart alec one-liner, the latter won out every time. I liked the plot and the ideas, but thought it was very juvenile. Narrator was Excellent, and I would not have tolerated the story if she had not made the heroine likeable with her intonation and pacing.
I love this narrator. I searched for the books she narrates and found these series.
Laughed out loud in some of the parts.
Can't wait for the next book.
this was just underwhelming
lost in shangra-la a true story of rescue in WWII
all of it except the premise
Anyone who gets a book published deserves a lot of credit. That being said, I'm glad I didn't pay full boat for this one. The story was a bit disconnected, as if the author forgot what circumstances she last left her characters in, and took up writing again placing them completely differently. Or maybe someone advised the author she must have certain elements present to make a successful book, and she forgot a few ...oops! gotta have a sex scene... oops! forgot the pathos... so she embroidered them on awkwardly at the last minute. It was disorienting. Disappointing, too, because I love a good series, and looked forward to embarking on this one. I won't buy the next book.
Yes, the narator made the book come alive
Yes, and I always enjoy her performance. She makes me think there is more than one person narating it.
Book was great. It kept me entertained and made me believe the narrator, Lorelei King, was actually each of the people in the story.
