I am an Australian woman who enjoys reading many different styles of books, from history to sci fi and mystery to poetry.
What a silly book. I was looking forward to the halarity mentioned in other reviews. I hardly raised a smile. The entire thing was a joke really, but it was on me, that I spent money on this drivel. The plot was predictable with stolid writing and the ending just made me cringe! This is modern day Mills and Boone. Dreadful.
Yes. It's a fun light book. Brightened my mood.
Made me laugh. Main character was strong and sassy.
I got this on the $4.95 sale thinking what do I have to lose! Molly Harper is FUNNY! Totally Chick humor! I will have to check out some of her other books because I couldn't stop laughing!
Firstly, I'd listen to this narrator again. The only reason I gave her performance 4/5 stars was because her male impression was almost creepy and it took a moment to adjust to the 'voice' of the male lead. HOWEVER, I'm glad I did listen to this in lieu of reading it because her voice is perfect for the female lead and adds the right depth of quirky goodness.
The female lead... oh Mrs Puckett, you've got a style all your own.
Same as above.. PERFECT voice for the Miranda Puckett.
There were several outright laughs and a few I had to stifle as not to wake anyone.
Narrated well - would listen to Amanda Ronconi again.
Skeptical about reading another book by Molly Harper.
Shallow character development; eye-rolling ridiculous scenes.
Amanda's performance was entertaining; good character differentiation.
This was about the most disappointing book I've listened to in several years. Perhaps it's the inevitable comparison with the Twilight books, and this, to me, was quite inferior. The character development was very shallow. The story, overall, was simple and superficial; very lacking in depth. It was entertaining enough that I finished, but only just. The narration was very pleasant, and that helped.
OK, so this book was no masterpiece but it was an enjoyable light comedic read between some of the really intense novels I have been reading.
Its short and sweet and as cheesy as the title suggest. But not a bad cheesy if you need a little comic relief or a no brain cell type read.
This book was well written and lots of fun to listen to!! The narrator is great and I found myself laughing out loud several times! I love this author and Amanda Ronconi is perfect to read these characters!
You know how when you were in elementary school how your teachers made you "outline the plot" of a story? Well this book had no rising action and certainly no plot climax. I just kept waiting and waiting for something to happen! I read a lot of Paranormal Romance, and this just felt like a watered-down romance novel with vampires thrown in.
The whole thing was just so worn out. There are a million books out there featuring a snarky protaganist with an authority figure problem who attracts trouble like a magnet. The trouble she attracted was all perfectly mundane and boring- such as vandals drawing on the hood of her car, and a hotel clerk shredding the wrong credit card. I guess my expectations were too high.
The narrator didn't do great male voices.
Disappointment. I will be returning this one.
Definitely don't waste a credit.
Like the romance, but love the action involved to get there!
Thank you audible for having this gem on sale or I never would have bought it....driving mr. dead doesn't sound like a book that would interest me but I found myself laughing so hard I about had an accident, and the narrator was just perfect!
So, Miranda finds herself a typical 20 something without a real plan or a goal in sight…her fiancé was actually cheating on her and her parents have her whole life mapped out, and she just needs time to think…what better way to escape than to sign up to drive a vampire cross country! This book is written in modern day, but in this world people know there are vampires. There is no mystical world to catch up on, it’s just that vampires live among us and sometimes they need human drivers who can drive during the day time.
The words “bad day” don’t really cover the catastrophes that eventually ensue during this trip and I don’t want to mention any because having them all happen one after another was the utter charm of the story…and I could see myself reacting the same way as the main character…which made it priceless!
Loved the story, wished there were another 10 hours of it, and have already downloaded other Molly Harper books because it’s been a while since I have laughed like that.
I enjoyed the story and the narration was good. But I was just getting into it when it finished, I wanted more!
