This book is funny and entertaining, so it rates right around the middle. Its excellent to listen to on my long commute, because no matter how bad traffic is, Miranda is always having a worse day, and her good-naturedness about what a mess her life is generally makes you feel better.
Miranda. She's so cheerfully accepting of what a train wreck her life is, that it just makes you like her all the more.
I really like Amanda's readings - it makes me feel like I'm listening to a friend tell me about her day.
Its all fun and games until the vampire drives, and then its just funny.
yes, classic tale of self discovery and emotional connection
And one more thing Also a Molly Harper book. Similar in the fact that your life isn't perfect but it's possible to meet someone who's willing to work with you and grow a relationship
Consistent funny well timed
They were a few instances where are you just felt for this girl & her ability to be in the wrong place at the wrong time
Consistent writing by Molly Harper I wish shed write more
This is the first book by Molly Harper but I'm sure it's not going to be the last. It's funny!
The main character was very entertaining. You never knew what was going to happen next.
Absoluteness, and I already have. It was damned hilarious & fun. Pardon the pun.
This one scene is the height of hilarity, when Colin decides he can help drive, and while our Heroine is sleeping, Colin becomes hopelessly lost!!
Impossible to choose. Amanda is sooo gifted!!
It was supposed to be a simple job....or so Miranda thought. How much trouble could one stuffy vampire be??
Excellent. Please put more of Molly's books on sale. Tomorrow.
Oh I plan on it!
I love the main characters struggles with her own awkwardness.
Heard, to pick just one this book moves at quite a clip.
Pick on, I laughed out loud several times.
This is a fun lighthearted adventurous tail.
I'd heard alot about Molly Harpers books and they always have good reviews but I just could not get into the story, I honestly tried reading up to about chapter six but it just wasn't for me, the reader however, was wonderful, the problem wasn't her it was the story.
Been a bit more detailed and a little less sarcastic.
yes she's a great reader.
I didn't finish the book so I don't think I really have a good clear cut picture of each person in the story, but from what I did read, I'd have to say most likely, her ex.
Just because this title wasn't for me doesn't mean I wouldn't tell someone else to give it a try. If you enjoy vampires mixed with normal every day people in a story then you may just like it. The book just honestly didn't captavate me.
In this book, we meet characters already near and dear to our hearts from the "Nice Girls" series. A few familiar encounters catch you off guard which is a good ear to ear grin since you feel like you're in on a secret. This story is another work of narrative art by Ronconi, like an old (beautiful) shoe that fits so comfortably while you listen.
I just loved waiting for the inevitable to happen to our heroine. Collin starts out as such a self-centered dork that one wonders how it will possbile for him to change meaningfully in such a short book. He is quite arrogant and not very likeable that it gets on the listener's nerves. So, Harper does a pretty good job leading us through his growth, if somewhat implausible.
The Bat Mobile pink-boobed and all going over the ravine is hilarious and such a good tease to make us wonder, "what next for our two wayward travelers?" I would be remiss if I didn't mention the root cellar, especially the tears - quite moving.
Absolutely since it is a quick, funny listen.
More, more, more.....
You might like this book/series. I expected to be rapidly engaged with this story after reading several positive reviews of this book. I have read nearly all of the Charlaine Harris "Sookie Stackhouse" novels and enjoyed them very much. However, by Chapter 4 in Driving Mr. Dead, one of the main characters was revealed to have been a British soldier in the Revolutionary War, it just smacked too much of a main character in the "Sookie" series, and that was enough for me. Besides that similarity, the plot line so far has failed to entertain me even at the most superficial level, so I will not even waste my time finishing the book.
Skinny Dip by Carl Hiassen. I need some laughs.
I thought her narration was very good and her characterization of the players distinctive.
Maybe I would have enjoyed the series beginning with the first of it, AND if I had never read the Charlaine Harris books as they seem so much more entertaining than this one was.
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.
