I always like the way Wu molds the characters so "Performance" is still 5 stars but the rest of this book is more like Part 1 of 2. The cost should reflect it but doesn't.
I have listened to all the Betsy Books and I used to love them, but the last couple of books have felt like fillers.... Nothing really happens..... The book was entertaining and I enjoyed it because I enjoy the series, but overall nothing happened... So if you love the Betsy series it is worth buying but otherwise I probably wouldn't bother...
Tell us about yourself!
WOW....just listening to all the prattling going on in Betsy's head gave me a headache. She would just go on and on and on and on and there wasn't much "story" being told. She took way too much time filling in words that basically said nothing to get to the end result! ugh.... If I had not wanted to know what was going to happen, I would not have listened to the end. But the nonsense streaming out of her head got on my nerves! If I start talking about all the things I didn't like specifically it would give the plot allbeit weak! away.....
I have read ALL of her Betsy books...but I don't know that I would read another one at this point. She is running out of ideas and needs to move on to another character.....
OH Nancy is great! Her voice has become Betsy. She does a good job changing character voices where you actually know who is talking without having to say it.
I would have early on....but not now. No imagination in the way she has tied things up at the end. I am disappointed in where the story is now. There was alot of potential with the other characters but she is just making stuff up now....
I would NOT recommend this book. If someone I know is reading the series, then maybe....but it is not her best work. Sorry MaryJanice :-)
I almost did not get this selection after reading some of the reviews. I have read the entire series and was a little disappointed with the last book so wanted to check the reviews on this one.
I am so glad I went ahead and got it! I was still a little hesitant, but once I started, I wondered why in the world I waited so long!
It is a typical Queen Betsy story. Everything goes awry and Betsy feels put upon and feels she must fix things, which of course, gets all screwed up. With Marc, The Devil, Future Betsy, Nick/Dick, Antonia, Garret, Sinclair and the "Stomach that ate the world"...
All the characters I enjoy were there and of course, it all comes together in the end.
MaryJanice Davidson is such an enjoyable storyteller. Nancy Wu is perfect for the narration!
If you are looking for serious storyline, or sense made of Zombies and Werewolves, this is not the book for you.
But if you want an enjoyable, humorous story with great narration...ENJOY this next installment of the Queen Betsy series!
I can't wait for the next one.
Yes, I would. Story is very entertaining and keeps you hooked.
There are so many great parts of the book. I can't pick just one.
Lucy has a great voice. She keeps the characters interesting.
Yes, I listened to it as often as possible.
All of her books in this series are short but outstanding. The narrator is one of the best we have listened to so far
She ruined the story when she did the timeline change
I don't think so
Not sure, but I believe we had a different narrator for earlier books who was much better.
Most all of them
Why did she have to ruin the story with the time line?
This was it for me. The last book Undermined was better than Unfinished. I actually looked forward to reading Unstable. The title fits. This book was nothing like the first 8, which I will recommend and totally stop there.
I love Betsy but she was to much. The whining was over kill for me. It just went on and on. It seemed as if you wanted us to remember how she was instead of her growth. I was disappointed and upset throughout the whole book. I finished only due to challenging myself. The epilogues where the best part of it. I am sorry MaryJ.... I love you but I can no longer listen to a forced story. Bringing just about everyone back.. what was that? There is so much of a story to tell with new characters. Instead everyone in the house is back. I thought I would be interested in the next book. But because of the last 3.... I'm not.
Good luck with the series from here on out. My journey with the undead series ends....
I did not like Sinclair. My own.... He sounded like a weak man.
It seemed as though the plot was missing. Things would just happened. Seemed boring compared to the first 8 books.
This book is not the next book in the series. There is another short story that connects the story. The author tells you about it in the prologue but states it is not nessary to read it. Wrong. I have been following the whole series and I was lost from the beginning. This is not the only problem with the book. In most of the story the characters have diagloge back and forth that was meaningless and uninteresting. The book does not have much of a story. I dont know if I will contiue to read the next book. Maybe its time to end the series.
