I don't know the story just didn't grab me
ok I guess
It was ok background noise
Tell us about yourself!
The write has an incredible sense of humor!
The whole book is great, from start to finish. The quick wit of Charley is great.
This was the first time I have listened to this narrator. She is amazingly funny. She delivers the authors humor perfectly!
This book is really funny and the chemistry between Charley and Cookie, and Charley and UB is fantastic! The narration is spot on!
Crazy red head who's head over heels about family, friends and life in general!
I've had this book on my wish list for a while so I decided to take the plunge. Charley Davidson is a human grim reaper who helps the departed resolve past life issues before crossing over. It was a creative story, well written with a story line that was different from any I've read. The characters are interesting and well developed. Charley has hilarious inner dialog with herself and her dead companions. That alone made me like the book as it created uncomfortable and hilarious situations. There are a couple of love interest in the story including friction with a detective that has the potential to turn into more and a keen physical reaction to "big bad" who only comes to her in her dreams. The book is really two stories in one as Charley resolves the murder of three lawyers on the same night and the truth regarding who is "big bad" and the early development of their relationship. There are many hints as to where the future books will take this story and I'll be pursuing the other Charley Davidson books to find out. If your looking for something light, entertain and is not the beginning of a series than this books for you.
In my opinion, a good story evokes emotion. It'll make me laugh, angry, or cry. But it can't just be words on a page. It has to do something
The beginning started out okay. But the farther I got into the book, the more ridiculous it became. An interesting concept, taken way, way too far. I'm definitely sending this one back. Great narrator, but she couldn't help this book.
This was so boring that I had to stop listening to it. I attempted to return it, but audible would not put the transaction through. Horrible book, horrible service.
I have a real crazy in love relationship with books!!!
The foul language! Yeah I'm a big swear worder lol and Charley ALMOST has me beat! I freaking love it!
Absolutely! I need to read book 2 so I can get a better grasp of what is going on. I would continue to read from Darynda Jones because she has interesting, humorous writing. Pretty unique if you ask me.
Hmmm. The one where Charley threatens Reyes not to hurt the creepy guy and he smiles at Charley.
I don't know if 'moved' is the right word but when Reyes told Charley who he truly is was pretty neat.
This is a good start to a series I look forward to exploring. I would definitely recommend it!
Original idea, humorous.
The humor and that it was an original idea that Charley is a grim reaper.
Lots of laughs.
Listened for a second time; I had forgotten how funny the first book was.
My daily drive is about 2 hours a day and this book was a great listen. I love Charley because she has a sense of humor that I can relate to.
To find out who 'Big Bad' is
Great book. Interesting premise and I love Charley. She is hysterical. On to the next one...
I have never written a review before and I honestly never thought I would, even though I like reading them. But this book and this whole series are just so incredibly amazing and I myself stumbled over the first book by coincidence so I thought I would try to spread the word.
I read a lot of books in the paranormal genre, but what I think really makes this series stand out is that it has all the elements I love in one place: First of all, the humour is great! I was grinning constantly while reading and often laughed out loud. Secondly, the male main character is just really hot. No kidding, like really, really hot, not just pretending to be so. And with all these hot male characters around in all the other books, it's hard to actually stand out. But he does! And finally, I never got bored for one second while reading. Usually, I can get impatient while reading conversations with side characters and resolving side storylines. I am just waiting for whatever hot male character to return or for the main plot to be resolved. But everything about this book is just really entertaining, mainly because the main character has a rather unique look on things. She could be describing the periodic system and I swear I would enjoy every word of it. Though actually, I doubt she would be capable of concentrating long enough for that.
While this is in itself an amazing book and series, the narrator just makes it unique. She brings every character to live, not just the main ones, but even side characters who only appear briefly. She does it so well that you always know who is speaking before you're told and she makes no mistakes. If there was an Oscar for best narration, it should go to Lorelei King! I have read a lot of audio books and this is the best narration I have ever come across.
Words fail me, and it's not only because I am in a constant state of panic because I don't even know when the next book in this series is going to come out. It's worth 5 credits, but you only have to pay one!
