I am in love with these books and the wonderful plays on words, the silliness, the adventures of a strong female character. I got lost in each book and now, having reached the end of what is available, wait with baited breath for the next and the others that follow. Ihope the author never tires of stories or of this series and I truly hope the narrator stays with the series. She is PRICELESS. Her intonations and accents are perfect and precious!
Emily Gray is now my favourite actress for audible books. I love how she brings the characters to life, each their very own and special accent or tone. She maintains consistency throughout the series and I truly appreciate that.
The development of characters from the previous novels and the combination of genres, there's romance, action, mystery and humour.
Of course Alexia is fabulous, but there is such a well-balanced ensemble of characters that it really is too hard to pick.
The fight scenes in the the Alexandria hive, or any with descriptions of Egypt.
Something witty, I'm sure!
I'd love to see the earlier novels in this series recorded as audiobooks. I wouldn't recommend listening to them out of order.
Lady Maccon. She was the main character that kept everything together and moving.
The voices! She has an amazing ability to give each character their own voice.
When Lord Maccon fell out of the balloon after being shot.
By the 5th book Carriger has really developed the characters into distinct people. I hope she comes up with another idea for these or other characters from The Parasol Protectorate. It felt like the ending was rushed though.
The fall from the balloon
Mummys cause supernatural chaos to be put down by a woman with no soul, but a lot of heart!
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to all of the series. Couldn't wait to listen every day.
I loved all of the characters. Such a variety and lighthearted fun.
Lovely voices, lovely tone.
Remarkable- move over Mary Poppins!
I loved this series.
Loved The Book! Can't wait for the next one... Never a dull moment!
Gail Carriger writes a wonder series that I keep listening to and reading over and over again. Her characters are well rounded and highly entertaining.
I especially loved the scene when Prudence runs around the streets of London in chapter 2.
It is a great novel with a heart warming love story and when you are uncertain of Connell's fate I bawled my eyes out. I almost stopped listening because I was mad that Gail could kill off a main character.
Emily Gray does an excellent job reading all of these books. She has a wide range of pitches and accents that give the characters a depth that can't be achieved from reading the books alone.
I have to save my sensitive eyes for thesis-writing, so audiobooks are how I keep up with my favourite authors and have fun.
This installment of the Parasol Protectorate is, I think, the best - and that's saying something! I didn't think Carriger could top the last four books in the series, but this one is absolutely awesome - it had me laughing and crying and laughing again. Mostly laughing. A definite must-listen!!!
I've heard this is the last book Carriger will write starring Alexia, but I've also heard that Carriger may write a series featuring Alexia's daughter, Prudence, and this seems likely given a few plot developments.
