It has the right combination of story line, characters and interaction of the characters. I also want to thank the narrator Emily Gray for her excellent ability to bring life to each character. I not only will look to this author, Gail Carriger for other writings but will look to Emily Gray for her telling/reading of the story.
Just love this series! Alexia is such a bewitching heroine and has such madcap, albeit dangerous, adventures. Cannot wait to see how things continue in the next installment. Highly recommended!
The pauses between chapters are ridiculous I had to keep checking to see if the app was still running. Also I wished for more action this seemed more like a filler story.
The story and performance were both 4 stars but overall is only 3 stars because the long pauses were so irritating. The audio editor could have done a much better job. Several times I thought I had accidentally hit pause and was startled when the story suddenly resumed. At first I thought the long pauses were between chapters or a change of scene within a chapter but then it happened again in the middle of a scene. I love getting caught up in the story in audiobooks but this kind of thing just pulls me right out of it. Please fix it!
I enjoyed the story very much, but the long pauses in the narration at strange intervals made me wonder if I'd missed something.
Very enjoyable lighthearted story with strong heroine and female characters mixed in with the giddy ones. The narrator did a wonderful job as usual. The editor could have eliminated some long pauses but they weren't too disruptive.
