Non stop action
I loved Ashai. I loved that he loved Liberty fiercely from childhood and stopped at nothing to protect her. Boarding Murderville was his one mistake which both paid dearly for but he righted this wrong even though he put everyone he loved in jeopardy.
I love his voice. His inflections and dialect. He is a perfect choice to read this series.
One thing irritated me and that was why didn't these goons put their money in a bank!!?? Other than that the book was an emotional roller coaster. My tears came in the last 10 minutes and would have flowed longer had the Epilogue not been so shocking and violent.
I don't usually do trilogies but I'm excited to move onto Murderville #2 and then #3.
What a horrible book - I barely made it through the opening. Totally unnecessary language, although considering the story line I should have known better.
I am an urban fiction addict!! Wahida Clark books are my fave! I love the Thug Series. I am an avid reader and Audible makes it even better!
Most definitely the narrator. He is really good. His distinction between the characters coupled with the sound effects made this a great listen! I couldnt stop!
The best part for me was Murderville. It was like nothing Ive read before. Although A&J have sold another character in another book to the slave trade (dont want to spoil it), the depth Liberty goes into it is crazy. That couldve been the book on its own. I wish the whole book was about Murderville.
He gave the characters life. The accents, the anger, the love, everything!!! You could feel them. He is great!
This book was good. Couldve been great, but it took a turn in the middle. I cant call it a wrong turn bc i still enjoyed it, but it became the trademark A&J situations. I think these characters couldve gone down a different path than most urban fiction characters, but you have to create a path for part 2 i guess. Im about to go use my credit for part 2, so I liked it....but MAN...it couldve been great!!!
I would not try another Ashley and JaQuavis book. I would not avoid a book narrated by Cary Hite.
All of the erotic scenes. There is something unsettling about transitioning from child slavery and rape to explicitly described romantic sex.
This book is laughably bad. It only makes sense if you imagine that it was written by a teenager trying to get a message out about human trafficking. They know it's bad so they tell you all the horrible things that happen to these characters. However, they still think drug kingpins and high end prostitution are cool so these things are glamorized even though the story acknowledges their ties to human trafficking.
It doesn't rank. I am reviewing this after listening to all 3. It was not a book that should have been made into a trilogy. It was a good start.
Most interesting: How the 2 had such different lives once they separated. Least interesting - the use of the word "Ma" Goodness, do they know any other terms of endearment for a woman? Like: Honey, beautiful, baby, shorty, something other than "ma" every 5 seconds.
He was wonderful. He did a great job with the accents.
I think this book should have and could have been raped up without making it a trilogy.
I have to be honest...if you are looking for a read that captures you at Page 1...this is not your book. However, if you are looking for a book where the story line gets better and better with each chapter...this is it.
Murderville really did start out slow. I was almost regretting that I selected it as the first book for our newly organized book club. But, I kept on reading. I am glad I did!
What I like most about the book was the way the story was told about undying and unwavering love. I also like the way the authors brought forth the back drop of what was really going on in Sierra Leone.
If you stick with this book, you will enjoy it. The only other negative thing I can say is that I hate the way it ended...But, because of that, I am encouraged to read Part II! LOL!
I appreciate the way the authors told the story of undying and unwavering love that managed to survive distance, time and hardship. The loyalty and the bond shared between the two main characters is awesome and you can feel it come through the words in the book.
I give the narrator’s performance two thumbs up. He worked between all of the many characters very well.
I'm not sure about that...
Can't wait to start book 2.
This was a very entertaining and suspenseful story. I love the flow as it moved from one situation to the next. The characters and their plight kept me listening with hope of good fortune to turn up at the next step.
I like the storyline about two people and their difficult journey, how Asi was determined to reach back and help Liberty.
Liberty. I would want to hear how psychologically she is impacted by the enslavement.
Just waiting for my next credits so I can get the rest of the series! I would like to see this as an HBO/Showtime feature!~
