I found this author by looking at what else the amazing Amanda Ronconi narrated. This was not a disappointment Well developed characters, lots of laugh out loud moments and even some mystery and intrigue. I promptly got the 2nd book!!
I mostly listen on my commute. I love Sci-fi, mystery thrillers, vampire love stories, great girlfriend stories and political thrillers.
I enjoy the narrator's voice but it also reminds me of other characters she's narrated.
Not very many books make me want to move into a smaller town than I'm already in and the funny little restaurant in this book makes me want to be a waitress LOL. I loved every moment of this book, looking forward to more! I laughed and was kept on the edge of my seat so it was a very good purchase for me. There's only 2 books so far, I'll be watching for more! The narrator is one of my favorites, of course she did a great job with all the voices I just love to find books done by her! Great job Thanks
This is a cute, entertaining story that made me laugh out loud more than once. I did not expect to enjoy it very much and was pleasantly surprised. I immediately bought the sequal and am currently enjoying that as much, if not more. Great narrator, added just the right amount of humor and emotion in her voice. Loved it!
This is my favorite narrator and a search for her brought me to this author. I thought it was a great pairing and will be on the lookout for other books by this author.
From the title the book was basically what I expected, but the author made the heroine almost too stupid to live and that is why it earned such a low rating. The story gave an interesting concept of magic, and Amanda's performance kept me going were otherwise I might have put down the book and not picked it up again. The action was fairly well paced, but all in all I am not eager to read the next book in the series.
I really enjoy Amanda Ronconi as a narrator. She brings life and depth to her characters that brings them to life for me. Even though I am hearing the story, she is able to make it feel like I am watching it. That is of course mostly the author, but I give credit to Ronconi for knowing how to infuse emotion into her voice when necessary, hesitation, uncertainty, passion, and excitement, all finding places in her reading of the story.
This is a lightweight story that doesn't really have a lot of negativity. Even though some bad things happen, it was apparent that it would have a happy ending - and I'm a sucker for a happy ending. :-)
Who doesn't enjoy being transported to another world, and traveling on an unforgettable adventure? Thank you audio books! Happy dance <3
Start with a cute idea with some interesting takes on a well used theme. Put in a dash of forced, frustrating romantic interaction. Add one adorable living mug-bunny and one living paper crane. Stir in the weird plot twists. Throw in a few funny moments and you get this story. The whole of it seemed rushed to me. Maybe because it was resolved and wrapped up in the last 20 minutes of the story? Overall though, I did enjoy this as a nice palate cleanser between heavy stories. A great book to listen to while cleaning.
