Book 2 is just as good as book one, but the ending gave me mixed feelings. It also had me running to my computer to download the next in the series. I think if you enjoyed Soulless you're hooked for the entire series.
Librarian, Avid Reader, Audiobook Addict!
I love the humor in these books and I want all the clothes except Miss Hisselpenny’s of course. Lord Maccon is rapidly becoming my second favorite Scotsman second only to Jamie Frasier! There are great lines in this book too numerous to mention. I love Alexia’s wit and strength. This series has made it on my favorites list.
Narrator , Emily Gray does a great job with all the characterizations and accents I will definitely look for other books she has narrated and she is now on my list of favorite narrators.
A gadabout with no room for heavy books, so love the audio ones.
I loved the first book but this one left me annoyed. A certain characters voice was so grating on my nerves I wanted to shut the book off, and the story focused entirely too much time on her "womanly duties".
Other that those two things, I could still pick out the humour the author had written in the story, as she had in the first, which I enjoyed so much. I will still move onto the next book in the series.
I really liked the audio for this book because I could listen while I walked, etc., and the change in voices with Ms. Gray helped me to keep track of who was talking. Amazing how these readers can alter their voices. It's also helpful with some words (albeit, few) when the word is new to me, or an accent goes with a character that I may not be able to create in my mind (Lord Maccon).
I am already on/in the next, and last book in the "Parasol Protectorate", Timeless. But sadly, there is no audio for this one. I wish more books had the audio available. I don't care for audio-books alone--I want a printed copy to follow along with, so I'll be watching for this option on my new book purchases.
I've read several others.
As I said above, the pronunciation of some words was helpful as were the accents created by Ms. Gray's voice.
YES! As a matter of fact, I wrote about this in my review of the book.
Say something about yourself!
I was expecting to be board by the whole married life part of the story, but I was shocked! The book was so exciting! A must read/listen in the series.
Channing Channing of the Chesterfield Channings. Read the first few pages and I think you will understand why!
Emily Gray is amazing! She's a very talented voice actor. The most impressive part for me is accuracy of the accents she uses and her ability to go from one to another seamlessly. I really enjoy her performances. I have listened to a few other audio books that are steam punk and if they had been read by her I would have enjoyed the other books much better.
The end but I don't wan to spoil it. It was very shocking and leaves you wanting to read/listen to the last book.
I would recommend this audiobook to any friend who likes strong female characters and perhaps a love for the British.
One of the most memorable moments of Changeless is when Alexia encounters Miss Ivy Hisselpenny while dangling in the wind.
My favorite character - as performed by Emily Gray - is Miss Ivy Hisselpenny. She makes a characters who could be all too easily annoying seem endearing and amusing.
Audiophile since the days I had to check 'em out on rickety cassette tapes at the local library. Currently working the other side of production as an author of romance and scifi/fantasy.
It's a great achievement to create a sequel that outshines the first installment. Ms. Carriger achieved this momentous feat in comical,endearing, and at times, heartbreaking perfection. The narrator and this story melt together like cheese and toast. Loved it, can't say enough good things.
Her best friend hisselpenny got intolerably dumb and the sister was annoying.
Wierd but the ending, I thought it was the most emotional and best written.
The plot was just weaker then the rest and the characters too dumb. I still enjoyed the book.
I would recommend this series to everyone.
I really like the child. She is extremely funny.
The when they were bathing the baby.
Yes, I listened to all of the books in this series in one sitting.
