I'll try not to put spoilers in, but I may spoil a bit. I don't like the direction Owen took in this book. He always seemed so much stronger and better put together than he ended up in this book. It was disappointing and just made me mad. Is still a good book, good villain, and Gin is awesome as always. I don't think you should skip it, just know you may be frustrated at the end.
I enjoy reading wiether it is in the written word or spoken, I find that with an audio book I can listen and workout, do house work, crafts, driving or just relax. Either way a book should capture your imagination and transport you into the fantasy world. As for the audiobook better than the printed.... An audiobook is more convienent.
There isn't any memorable moments... the whole book was on the edge of your seat good
her voices and accents were awsome, each individual charcter was distiguishable. I've listened to some audiobooks where the narator was not as good, and although the story was good, the performance made the book less memorable. Where as Lauren, her performance added that extra punch to the story.
YES YES YES
Top of my list IF NOT my favorite series yet!
Anything that has to do with the badass Gin. Gin, like the liquor that is. She is a simple southern girl with some extraordinary gifts.
No I have not, but I love her voice. Espically with that deep southern draw.
This book is pretty awesome. I love the narrators deep southern draw and sassy attitude. I can not wait for the next in the series!
Read A Book
I have really enjoyed this series. But what happened to the character of Owen? I always loved that the character was strong and accepted Gin for what she was. However, in this book, he turns into a whiny idiot. I say idiot because even after everything he finds out about the villain (stuff that everyone else knew except him), he still keeps saying, "I understand her more than anyone." Oh, shut up, Owen!
Please, bring back the Owen who was a strong, smart person, not the emo Owen who can't see the obvious even after it's punched him in the face.
This is a well written book that's lots of fun. There are no great literary themes here, but that's not usually what I want from an audiobook. I want to be entertained and distracted from my commute and this was perfect. I highly recommend it.
this book is another good one in the series and leaves you wanting more. I would recommend this book and series to a friend because its fantasy, humorous, romantic and interesting
the characters are flawed and interesting. Gin Blanco is not a hero nor does she pretend to be. She admits to faults and is a good friend to those she cares about. Every relation she has has more than one level, especially her relationship with her sister. I like reading how it is constantly changing, hopefully for the better.
i have not listened to any other books narrated by Lauren Fortgang but she does a very good job. Each character has his/her own voice and distinct characteristics. You don't have to wonder which character is speaking
I did listen to in 2 to 3 days and that’s only because I wanted it to last. I like getting the books in this series as soon as they come out.
Haven't read the print version..... Lauren Fortgang does a good job with both nuances of cadence of speech, expressing emotion, and differentiating characters with tones, accents, and inflection of voice, etc... So, listen to the sample. If her voice grates on your nerves, don't get it. I think she does a stellar job.
This may be an odd answer, but what stood out for me was the lack of the "info dump" that has seemed to plague Estep's other books. I realize you have to catch new readers up on some vital information to the series, but for avid readers of the series it becomes tedious and annoying the way in which she approaches this ---- ie- the aforementioned "info dump".
I never felt innundated with background information in this book. The information was still delivered but in a more amenable way this time. FINALLY!
Covered in the answer to the first question. smile.
If you are a fan of Owen & his sister... there is a lot of meaty backstory uncovered here.
I enjoyed learning more about the characters past ---- and the uncertainty of the future.
I have listened to ALL seven and can't wate for the next story!
Gin, of course
Pay whatever you need to keep her!!
exciting, but no.
Given some time I'm sure I would. The Widow's Web like all the other books draws you in ans leaves you wanting more. There's always good action and just enough on the romance. This one in particular pulls at the heart strings though.
This question I honestly have no answer for.
Lauren's performance has been phenomenal from the start. From her southern drawl to her warm seductive lines she is awesome!
For the most part yes.
I have been happily married for 17 years, I have 3 children (12, 14, & 16), and 2 dogs. I am currently working on a 2nd degree. Life is chaotic and stressful, but I wouldn't change it. I am blessed and enjoying my life.
Another great Spider adventure. I loved hating the new villain. I was disappointed in Owen's attitude in the end, but I still have hope that he will come around. All in all, I really like this series.
