Just fantastic. I love everything about this series. It's all basically a huge, hilarious, well-written slap in the face to Twilight. And I love every page of it. From story, to narration, to just how loveable all the characters are.
24 summers old and love fantasy books. I like being able to drift off into another world.
I couldn't put it down the odd pauses after chapters threw me off I thought the book cut out but the story was great and her voice brings the boom to life
This was a great story. The production was less stellar, having enough lengthy pauses at odd spots, not just chapter breaks, to add 1/2 hour or more the the audio book! It was very distracting!
A wonderful book, with a great vocal performance but so many distracting audio problems! Large gaps of silence & random breaths were very annoying! An otherwise enjoyable listen, hopefully these issues are solved in the future.
I was a 'readaholic' for most of my life. I started crochet and other hobbies. That took away from my reading time. I discovered audio books at the library. That set me off. now, that I am older my eyes make it too difficult to read. So I now am a very diligent audio book listener!
WARNING; this is a series that has to be read/heard in order. In old days one had to get used to pauses at beginning and end of audio cassettes. These had background noises. Those sounds indicated tape playing was in progress. The length of pauses in this audiobook rivals tapes. I found myself reaching to check play status when they occurred. Pauses vary in duration making them difficult to anticipate. This is why I gave performance 2 stars. The story is very predictable. It is saved because the supporting characters so good in previous books get larger roles. I hope they get their own book or short story. The book is enjoyable, especially if you enjoyed previous books. Emily Gray does a good job narrating, the pauses interfere with performance.
Love this author and the books in this series. Like Emily Gray's narration.
The laughs, the adventures and the interaction between the characters. Especially enjoyed Lord Woosley's drunken escapade.
At times it's as if she's gasping for breath. However, in all fairness, this may be in direct relation to the terrible editing of the audio The pauses were so long, I found myself constantly checking to see if my device had shut it self off!
The agonizingly long, drawn out time with the male inventor in Paris. Could have skipped the ghost there, also.
My major complaint, with all the books so far, are the long pauses between Chapters/Scenes. (It's bad when you find yourself wondering if you'd accidentally set the sleep timer!) But this is, by far, the worst. This book should be totally re-recorded and made available to all those who have purchased this decidedly bad recording.
I have been enjoying this series immensely...smart, funny, entertaining, plenty of action and a top notch narrator. Win.
I was a bit concerned after reading some of the comments regarding the long pauses between chapters and such, but I didnt find it to be bothersome at all...either because I was prepared for it or it wasnt as noticeable to me as it is for others. I am generally pretty picky about the narrators...a bad one can really ruin a book for me. Breathy sounds, weird pauses, mispronunciations are all things that really irritate me. I was not at all irritated or distracted by the narrator in any way. And her characters and voices are delightful.
I don't know of anyone who would enjoy this book
Worst book ever of all that I have read.
