Sweet, Clever, And Engaging
I have found this book and others in the series so far to be amazingly entertaining to listen to and read. The story is a gentle tale of discovery and a quiet moment amongst some of the faster paced stories I enjoy in the Urban Fantasy genre. The story's pace makes it one of a kind and unique without direct comparison at this time.
The "narrator" in audiobooks is more of a voice-only actor than a mere copy reader. A good story teller makes or breaks an audiobook. Ms. Pardee nails it. Her voice timbre and ability to play each character makes the story believable and makes it easier to fall in love with these particular characters.
No, I didn't have an extreme reaction to this series, which, ironically, made the stories all the more appealing to me. They were a respite, a calm island in the midst of danger-filled, fast-paced, nail-biting stories I otherwise prefer.
These Modern Witch books tell a lovely, heart-warming story that makes me wish this universe were real and that these characters were people I knew.
Story is OK, not great. Don't think I'll be purchasing next book in series
pleasant enough story. well read. really a romance novel with some magic thrown in. I probably won't do the rest of the series but this was OK
I love to listen to books while I live my life. It makes mundane things interesting. I love a great series. I welcome recommendations!
I laughed out loud a few times and really liked all the characters. A nice story to read for anyone
I loved this book so much it was a delight to read. I wanted more of Lauren's story. I loved the dialogue and how much of a page turner it was. I really liked how it made magic fun! how it made witches not scary green crones but any number of types of people and how magic was used or seen differently it was awesome!!!
I am no book to compare it to it is in a class all its own!!!
Martha Harmon was amazing I loved how she narrated the book it added even more to an awesome story
Yes, I almost managed to listen to it in just one day but I am glad I got to enjoy it more.
If you want to read an awesome book with lovable characters read this one its awesome!!!
Yes enjoyed story line and the readers style
Style and grace in bringing in characters along with the flow of her voice with the story
yes but just not possable
Really liked book and reader
easy to follow
the end was nice
nice little story but clicking of typewriter keys
I really wanted to like this book. And I guess I did. I liked the subject, I liked all of the characters. I liked the way everything ended up. Problem is, everything was wonderful throughout the entire book. No drama? No conflict? No danger? Not even a hangnail and a run in her hose.
Some authors feel the need to have all sorts of horrible stuff happen to their characters. Sometimes way too much horrible stuff, (think anything written by Diana Gabaldon). This book was the complete opposite. Glad everything worked out so well but I just can't bring myself to blow another credit on the sequel.
The book was like the first day of summer. Light, airy and full of fun. Just the right amount of magic, romance & characters you want to be real.
I think Nell, but I enjoyed them all.
Martha did a wonderful job narrating this book.
I nearly did. It isn't the 'suspenseful page turner' but it is a book that if you have the time to sit and listen, will take you away to a place full of surprises, giggles, magic & romance, which will keep you entertained.
I'm excited I found Debora Geary and that this is a series!
There are potentially interesting characters, settings, and dialogue in this book, but who would really care as the reader will eventually discover there is little by way of plot, climax or resolution to the story. Ms Geary presents an interesting premise, but everytime there is an opportunity for a plot to be developed and take direction, it devolves into the characters just accepting even the most profound circumstance, in casual conversation or narrative.
Other than Lauren being slightly perturbed with discovering she is a witch, there is little or no consequence in the world in which these characters live for action they have taken. The use of a drawing-in spell on the internet, a character spontaneously learning that the stranger she just met is likely to be her lover and father of her baby, the repeated warning that an untrained witch is a dangerous witch, all produce no more than a ho-hum effect in this world. Each of these events could have been a vehicle to create some modicum of drama, suspense, action or resolution.
Imagine you favorite aunt reading you a bed-time story.
