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.
I enjoyed the story and the narration was good. But I was just getting into it when it finished, I wanted more!
If you are already a fan of Molly Harper's audiobooks, Driving Mr. Dead will give you more of what you already love. This is yet another laugh out loud story that Ronconi has perfectly narrated. And since it takes place in Half Moon Hallow, many of the main characters from the previous books will make an appearance.
If not, this is a great book to get to know her style. This classic Harper novel features a comical yet lovable female protagonists whose wisecracks will keep you laughing. It's that same humor that keeps the romance between Miranda and Collin from being the super-sugary/cheesy brand that is often the meat of romance novels.
Witty, fast, fun
I am a huge fan of Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi truly brings Ms. Harper's characters to life. Excellent!
This book is hillarious! The cover makes this book look cheesy...and it has it's moments, but the laughs and wit make up for it. Fun read.
