A middle-aged romantic who grew up reading Heinlen, Louis L'Amour and Richard Hooker. Expect and honest opinion, even if it's not PC.
I always enjoy Molly's stories. I'm currently collecting her paperbacks which aren't available on Audible (but should be).
The family is a little put-off by the language and sexual scenes. I wouldn't recommend these for a teenager, but I love to read/listen to good fiction written for adults.
There may be a lot of books on the market, but there are only a few good authors; and Molly Harper is one of the best.
Amanda Ronconi makes the characters come alive and does an excellent job of changing pitch to change characters. She really knows how to give Molly's southern-style humor it's maximum effect on the listener.
The story is in the same vein (yeah I went there) as the others in the series. Harper does good research and sprinkles her own supernatural lore over it, which serves to build in the series. There's a good romance aspect, and lots of laugh out loud sniping banter.
I like audiobooks, these in particular, for when my hands are busy. I have had to stop what I am doing and laugh because Harper has such a good grasp of dialog. Talking about Jane's bad decision dress and Iris' parenting terrorism has made me recommend (read: force) a listen for several friends.
Ronconi has an excellent reading voice and a grasp on the characters. The heroine sparkles, and so does the somewhat anti-hero, but the supporting cast is not left out in the least. Over the series especially, she is impressive.
The humor that goes a long with the story.
She did great.
Yeah, the brotherly affection towards the younger sister.
A must read/listen...definitely entertaining and love story! Books by Molly is a hoot.
Yes, it was very funny and interesting story in the world Molly Harper has created.
It's similar to the Jane Jameson books. It occurs in the same world and some main characters appear in this book.
Yes, it's like her performances. It was funny and kept me interested.
It was an interesting difference to other type of books I usually go for. But kept my attention.
Molly Harper is so clever and witty and Amanda Ronconi is perfect in her narration.
being dyslexic, I never read allot but I loved books...doesn't mix right? NOPE...wrong...Audible allows me to "read" at a pace that works for me and they have a great selection of books to keep me interested. I'm a fiction , sci-fi, and adventure books with strong female characters reader. I have been on a Vampire kick lately so female protags have been on my list.
This book was funny, has some action in it, some interpersonal storyline, and (unfortunately) a Vampire to Human love story.
I liked the story, it kept me interested and i laughed ALLOT...I really liked the interaction between the two sisters, and the main characters sense of humor. She cracked me up allot and her wit was as engaging as well.
A girl finds a 1/2 "dead" vampire and takes him into her home to nurse him and action, funny stuff, and romance (of course) happen. Really, read it for its wit and humor...
The main character had smarts, wit, and humor. She wasn't the typical "human falls for a vampire" and goes gaga, character. She had a really nice look on life and I felt for her situation in life and her choices . I wanted to like her, and I did.
I do have to say that this is one of the few books that I've "read" where I felt like the person who did the performance matched the intent of the author and added to the story. I liked Amanda's performance and it stood out for me.
Really, read this book...while it has the "Human vs Vampire" love story snuck in there, it was still REALLY good and the humor and wit of the writer seemed to outshine the love story aspect that has been so overdone in many books these days.
I would recommend this book because it is light, funny and I thought the main character was really well written.
I don't have any other titles I would really compare it with.
I have not listened to any other performances by this narrator. I thought she did an excellent job.
There were lots of funny bits sprinkled throughout the whole book. That made it a really enjoyable listen.
