The narrator is great, liked the story line
It is funny, unexpected turns and the characters are wonderful
If you just want to listen for fun - this is it
I really enjoy Molly Harper's writing and this book was no exception!
Laugh out loud Funny, sweetly romantic. I think I'm gonna listen to it again. 😁
Frist, there isn't a writer I love more that Molly Harper, or a narrator more than Amanda Ronconi. They are the perfect combo!
I have made that drive in the opposite direction - South to Northwest - with near identical pitfalls. It was funny and cringe-worthy. It moved almost too fast for me. I didn't want it to end.
This book was a little disappointing. (Sorry, Molly) I got the feeling that the author's head and heart wasn't really in the writing of it since it wasn't up to her usual standards. The entire storyline felt like a forced and contrived combination of I Love Lucy, Wayne's World and Dude, Where's My Car? Most of the storyline just didn't make sense. The main female character came off as a whiny, spoiled little rich girl rebelling against mommy, daddy, and all their evil money. I did finish it, but was really disappointed in it from beginning to end.
Nothing, every writer is bound to have an off day and I'm sure that for as many people out there who didn't like this book there are just as many who did. I still stand by her and look forward to future works from her.
Amanda Ronconi is one of my favorite narrators. I love listening to how she reads the books. The only problem I have is more my own issue then hers, because I've listened to her read all of Molly's books it sometimes takes a little adjusting to listen to a character have one voice in one book and when it comes up in another book the voice of that character changes to sound like a different character from the same book. Like Iris Scanlan suddenly sounding like Ophelia from the vampire council. This is bound to happen after a while. You can only come up with so many different voices to portray characters after a while.
Disappointment. Most of the humor that was attempted in this book came across as immature and just not funny. Like obsessing about spray painting BOOBS on the hood of the car then not being able to cover them up or do anything about it except to drive them down the highway proudly displaying them. Really? Then the other obsessive point about the faithless fiance. Did this chick really need a cross country trip to figure out the guy was no good?
I want to add lastly, that I sincerely LOVE Molly Harper's books and would encourage you to read any of her Naked Werewolf series or Half Moon Hollow series and you will not be disappointed in any of those (with the exception of Driving Mr. Dead).
The characters are loveable and engaging. The writing had me laughing out loud so many times I lost count. This book and all the books in the series have you eager for the next paragraph but dreading the books eventually having to end.
Amanda Ronconi's performance really is an asset as well. She enhances the story and helps pull the reader in even more deeply.
I loved this book and am listening to it for a second time this week.
This is the only book I've listened to in the series, and probably the only one I will. I thought it was funny, I laughed out loud a lot, a good story, and the narrator was great, really made the book. Not necessary to listen to other books in the series to enjoy this one.
Typically I am not into the vampire books, but I was looking for something different and grabbed this because it was on sale. I was quite pleasantly surprised by Harper's writing style. Her infusion of humor into her stories makes them a fun read and after reading this I am going to read the rest of the Sleepy Hollow series. For better or worse, I am one of those readers that must read/listen to all the characters stories once I get into a series. While vampire stories still don't rate high on my list overall, Harper's books and the equally fun narrator are the exception and will be part of my library.
I only listen to Molly Harper books with Amanda Ronconi to bring it to life.
Amanda always makes the humor, roll on the floor laughing!
Snort or guffaw out loud at work.
