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.
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.
