fun listen it was full of twist and turns liked it when i was listening to it but when i got time to write the review i had problems remembering the storyline i had to go back. i had oh yeah that one moment. is worth the listen.
Nice book and easy listen. One thing that was quite distracting was that the narrator's voice was so robotic! Overall, the story was entertaining and the protagonist and other characters were likable, if one dimensional. While I generally love book series and usually am anxious to read more, I am not sure that I will continue this one. This may be one that I continue by just reading and not listening to an audiobook, as I have a feeling I would like it more without the narrator's voice.
Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
Good characters, decent story, good listen. Characters are quirky, but conversations and situations aren't very humorous. Overall average, nothing to make it stand out.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
This was a nice whodunit. No swear words, no sex, and a big loveable dog. Stacy was in denial of her magical powers because she believed she caused her fathers death. However, her grandmother thinks its time for her to accept her given gifts and get on with her calling. We all know Fate loves to dip her hands in and does just that. What happens next has Stacy becoming a believer and accepting the way things are.
The narrator did a fine job. I have heard so many mediocre narrators lately I have become inured to them, unless they are super horrible.
This is an easy listen, young people would enjoy this one also. Its pretty tame and clean.
Favorite author: Alexander McCall Smith Favorite narrator: Gerard Doyle Favorite listen : Burton and Swinburne Trilogy
Nice mystery. Not too heavy. Supernatural sister detectives. I think she is actually a reporter. It was an entertaining book. Got it on a daily deal so definitely worth it. I will probably get the second in the series to lighten up after I read/listen to Rise of the Automated Diplomats the 6 th and final Burton and Swinburne. Can't wait.
I guess I didn't pay enough attention to the editor's summary of the book, because I was totally surprised by the wonderful witches.
I loved them all
No, but she is very good.
I did listen to it all at once. It isn't a difficult read, and had me chuckling so often that I just kept going. I will read more of the series when I have an extra credit or two.
There is a pretty good mystery here, but the characters really take center stage. The 3 aunts/grandmother are absolutely wonderful and I found myself hoping for more appearances by Lolly. She's the witch who closely resembles Marion Lorne's ditsy character in "Bewitched," only I find Lolly funnier. This is a wonderful book for those perfect summer days. Enjoy!
Book and plot were ok, the narrator drove me nuts. I won't be back for future books in the series.
The story was good, but the narrator's voice drove me nuts. She used a breathy and mechanical voice for Stacy, the main character.
Enjoyed the characters.
Amy's choice of slow mechanical, breathy voice for the main character drove me nuts! I don't think I will order another of Amy's books without a pre-listen
First of all I had to speed up to at least 2 1/2 or maybe three times the speed.
Second the narrator had one of those voices that was super calm the whole time, even with the jokes they weren't really delivered in a way where you would find them, like I don't know, funny.
Third, I couldn't figure out why she was investigating the crime. The police said they were investigating but she was the only one working. Seemed like the male characters had no backbone.
Finally, she was non committal about everything, which is part of her story but really, everything.
