It's official. Gail Carriger is one of the best authors upon whom I have ever had the pleasure of stumbling. Her sardonic wit combined with amusing phraseology is delicious...like pesto. And like that "green sauce", her stories are similarly rich and complex.
the editing is pretty bad in this one. huge pauses where the shouldn't be. but another satisfying story from carriger.
Loved the book and the reading but the editing was the worst I've ever heard. Random breaks in a the middle of a scene and intakes of breath in between chapters. Weird pauses where there shouldn't be any can be distracting but the the book was so enjoyable I put up with it. Love Ms Carriger's writing and even had some LOL moments which are always extra funny when walking around in public! Ms Gray also does a lovely job with the characters and their different voices. Basically wonderful audiobook with bad editing!
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!
