Say something about yourself!
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.
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.
Heroine is an absolute delight and Amanda Ronconi reads her beautifully, She is witty and funny and someone whose exploits I wanted to hear. Hero wasn't nearly as riveting - not sure if it was the reading or the writing for him. Regardless - well worth purchasing.
I enjoy many types of books and am always looking for new authors to read and listen too. I enjoy reading the reviews and adding my own from time to time.
Fun, fun, fun
The way things just seem to go wrong no matter how hard Miranda tries to do things right. It is a comedy of mistakes that have you laughing all the time. Molly Harper is just great with dialogue and you should be careful with food or drink when listening to one of her books. The most unexpected things come out of Miranda's mouth. She is a very funny character and the vampire Colin is so far behind current times and customs that he is just as funny in a different way. He makes as many mistakes as she does.
She just knows how to put the emphasis where it should be on the lines she is reading. Her voices are very good and though some don't like her voice, I think she is very good and a perfect match for Molly Harper's style of writing.
This was an easy listen due to the great narration. If the narrator hadn't been this good, I don't know if the book would have "grabbed" me. It was rather predictable, but moments were very funny. It is a short audio book, and if one is looking for an easy read, this would be a good choice. It was my first Molly Harper book, and since I like a little more meat in the audio books I listen to, I probably won't purchase another.
Given the author and narrator, the book is entertaining but it didn't quite suck me in as much as the Nice Girls series by Molly Harper. I realize these are spin off characters and for that and a nod to them with their own story, it's still got that humorous approach and moving along storyline.
