The narrator, Johanna Parker, is fantastic. She really captures Sookie. Her portrayal of the other characters is fantastic as well.
Many of the reviews I've read of the text version are down on the book because it's not as sexy or as funny as previous ones, but I think Harris is just trying to prepare us for the next book, which will be the last in the series.
Parker's narration keeps the story moving.
The accent! :-) And Sookie's emotions.
In Juliet Blackwell's "A Witchcraft Mystery" series, she creates a world in which natural witches and witches who had no skills before training exist side by side, each learning and practicing differently, but each having an effect.
Xe Sands really brings Blackwell's characters to life. I can visualize them better. Excellent narration.
Lily. She sounds like she'd be a good conversationalist.
The wrapping up of loose ends and the beautiful narration.
I've enjoyed the Audible series from the beginning, and though I'm sad to see it go, I'm satisfied with the way Ms. Harris ended the series, and I look forward to her next adventures.
Georgia Thackery. She's independent, witty, and strong. She loves her daughter and her best friend, Sid, and would do anything to help them.
Very good depiction of academia and all its politics. Very good banter between Sid and Georgia.
The characters and settings were so well-drawn that even weeks after finishing the book I can see the scenes in my mind.
The fascinating descriptions of medieval medicine and how the barbers fit into the medical picture, and the inventive depiction of magic.
In the beginning, I dreaded it, but couldn't put it down.
The narration was excellent and the magic compelling. I'd recommend it.
The different areas she investigated. Her balanced investigation and open mind.
I think the narrator was terribly mismatched. Roach's wit is dry, yet the performance was too peppy, too stage-projected for the book. I feel bad for both the author and the performer.
I love Roach's writing, and I think the delivery should convey her personality more.
