Wanted know more about all of the characters!
Just love all the voices she uses. She really gets you from the first couple of words and you just don't want to stop listen to.
It's Molly Harper, so you know it's going to be funny. And quirky. And adult. And fun.
It's Half Moon Hollow so you know the setting will be full of crazy characters in her fictional "post vampire liberation" world of witches and werewolves and vampires trying to make their way in the "human" world.
And it's Amanda Ronconi so you know you are going to be treated to a wonderful performance of Molly Harper's interesting if somewhat unbelievable plot involving a witch hunt of most unusual parameters. If you're a Harper and Half Moon Hollow fan, you'll recognize and welcome back a number of your favorite denizens of this funky Kentucky town.
These are adult "fairy tales" and meant to be read for the sheer fun of it. Let your imagination loose and have fun!
I love my audiobooks! Great for traveling.
The overall story is okay. The narrator's performance is bad. The Irish accent sounds like someone from the 1920's. The story gets more and more interesting as you continue to listen. I would recommend purchasing this story only if it a buy one get one free or at a special price.
HALF MOON HOLLOW HERE I COME! I CAN SEE THIS PLACE VIVIDLY THANKS TO MOLLY.GUESS THAT IS MORE THAN 3 WORDS BUT WHO COUNTS THIS STUFF? DO I LOSE POINTS FOR THAT?
DICK CHENEY, OF COURSE! ..HE IS LIKE AN OLD FRIEND THAT YOU KNOW BETTER THAN TO HANG OUT WITH BUT, YOU JUST CAN'T STAY AWAY.
WHEN NOLA FIRST SEES JEB IN FULL ON ARMADILO ARMOUR
YES, WHEN NOLA WAS ABLE TO TRULY CONFRONT HER MOTHER SANS THE BINDING.
PLEASE PLEASE WRITE MORE ABOUT THE HOLLOW!!
Grandma who spends too much time in her car. The books keep me happy and sane!
It's a fun story. I enjoyed revisiting the characters. It's not brain surgery, but if you want to have fun, this is a good choice IF you are not bothered by horrible attempts at accents.
Probably not. I was exhausted by listening to her sometimes "Boston" accent. It was bad to start with, and not at all consistent. I have a very hard time listening to books where the performer is trying to do different accents.
I laughed a lot, it was fun.
I can't honestly endorse this book because of the narration. If you're not bothered by accents then by all means, it is a decent book.
If this book is free, or close to it (as it was when I wrote this review) do yourself a great big favor and buy it NOW. I don't much like humor books, but ... Her quips, jibes, and sarcasm are delivered deadpan, just when one expects a predictable sentence.
Just imagine what one can do with the line: "He's so vain." If your veins aren't running, that is.
I'm now paying serious $ / credits for Ms. Harper's other books. Enjoy.
Maybe my expectations were too high after reading other Molly Harper books. These characters were not particularly amusing. And the main character's Boston/Irish accent was just horrible. I cringed for the first hour trying to figure out what the narrator was trying to do. I suppose it would be a hard mix to pull off but it was seriously distracting. The love interest had an equally annoying voice. I'm just glad it's over!
I couldnt put this book down!! I enjoyed the witty dialog between the characters and cant wait to explore her other books. This book had me laughing out loud one minute and fanning myself from the steamy scenes the next. The narrator did an excellent job and complimented the story.
Yes, it's fun.
The plot was somewhat predictable, particularly toward the end. Foreshadowing should have been a bit more subtle. But, I do like her brand of snark. It's uplifting.
Until they mentioned the character had a mix of Bostonian and Irish accents, I though she needed a speech tutor. Later, I could not figure out if they added the comment to match her narration or if she is a truly gifted vocal genius to merge the two. In any case I like her performances, even when the accent is confusing.
Different narrator, or just if Amanda (loved her in other Molly Harper books) had not attempted an "Irish" accent. Could only handle 7 minutes before giving up!
Something else in my library
Horrible Irish accent that swung between her regular voice to some type of Boston-esque over to a Brooklyn pronunciation for just certain words. Granted I listen to quite a few Irish books on Audible and work with a bunch of Irish people so my ears are well tuned and Amanda's attempt was like nails on a chalk-board. Could not pay attention to what she was saying, it was that distracting.
Can't say, would have read it and very well may.
If you are not that familiar with Irish speech, this may not bother you at all and I expect it may be as entertaining as Molly Harper's other books - loved the Naked Werewolf series and "And One Last Thing".
