This story was entertaining and kept me interested the whole time. A light read, no brain strain involved. However, the narrator was awful. Her voice was harsh and her accent was all wrong. The main character was raised and had lived in Mississippi for her entire 29 years. Even with working to minimize it, she would not sound like this woman's abrasive voice. She did a terrible job on men's voices, making them sound more like obscene phone call voices. I will put her on my "never to listen to again" list. There are 2 others on the list, so I don't easily put people on it.
I had listened to Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs and didn't like it much. Found it unorginal and too similar to other series. I was hesitant to get this book, however, I thought this book was GREAT and I'm super happy I gave it a shot. Totally original and a very intertaining story. Once of the best listens for me in quite a while!
I love Molly Harper's sense of humor, she has a way of turning a phrase that is incredible. I like listening to her books to pick up great one liners along with the mind candy.
Married, middle-age, owner of 3 dogs, 2 cats, and a messy house.
This story had me laughing out loud many times! More than flirting goes on, a little explicitly, but it was OK. Definitely not a children's story though. My only complaint was that most of "voices" used for men were practically a whisper, so I had to stop, back up, and listen again carefully because I'd missed something. However, the story is worth that little bit of trouble. None of the characters are very deep, and the story is fairly light, but it moves along steadily and kept me entertained from beginning to end. Highly recommended! I'm sure I'll listen to it a couple more times, and will try more Molly Harper books.
The werewolf idea has been overused but that is not the problem with this story, which is light and fluffy and OK in many ways. The problem is a narrator who is pretending to be a twenty-something from the deep south, specifically Mississippi, without a Southern accent. Nada. The accent is referred to in the text at least three times but it is totally missing. The male voices are Ok, although not inspired, and the voice of Alaskan natives are Ok accent-wise but very similar. Narrator just brings this nice, mediocre novel down.
Need a little comic relief? Then listen to this silly book. The narrator does such a great job, really well done.
Hey Hey Hey
Not heavy listening. Listened to this while I was laying out in the sun--which was perfect because it didn't require a lot of brain power or stir many emotions. Humorous relationship with her parents--very Santa Cruz for the south. If you want something mindless, this would do.
This book was an easy listen. I could not pay attention and still come back and know what was going on. I would listen to Molly Harper books again, but only if they were on sale, and I wouldn't waste a credit on this one.
I found myself laughing out loud at the dialogue and driving around the block to keep listening. I hope there's a sequel. This is a wonderfully fun story and a fun listen. It moves along quickly in a great setting and the characters are not complicated . Its just an easy easy listen that puts a smile on your face
