Yes. I love this series and this Book doesn't disappoint. They all build on the past so it is important to listen to the books in order. I was fortunate to discover this series after all six were published so now I'm waiting for Book 7 to be published next year. In the meantime I'm relistening to all of the books again, after having read them in text format, and listened in audible once already. I am an addict for Mercy!
Let's see if I can count that high. Mercy, of course, because she is strong and what every woman wants to be. Having the alpha of the pack after her, and the son of the wolves, and the vampire loves her. Then there's Adam and he terrific. Stephan is marvelous because he is so old world and gentlemanly and a vampire! Hmmm. After that it is Warren and then Ben and I love Bran and his grandfatherly approach to Mercy. I just love them all.
Only heard her in this series but will listen to her in the Stephanie Plum stories soon. She is a marvelous performer.
When Stephan shows up emaciated because his mistress has been punishing him. He is so needy and the wolves step up and help out. Patricia Briggs has an interesting way of telling these urban/fantasy/thrillers which make you want more and more.
I think the Mercy Thompson series is superb. Now I'll have to go back and listen to some of her other series.
Yes. Dean Koontz tells stories with so much detail that a second read is always warranted.
I think when Joey realized that his brother was the killer and then when the girl,he stopped to help took him to,the library and showed him his book.
His narration brings life to,the story.
Yes. I always get hooked on Koontz books. Sometimes I stayed up all,night to read one, The Watchers is one.
Yes. I think the narration adds to the book, any book, but especially books about fantsy.
The way the wizard was developed and interacted with humans.
Yes. I like the series and will be listening to others in the series.
Yes. I have the paperback and have read it. I'd listen to it again because every time you hear or read one of Diana Gabaldon's books, you pick up something different. Her plots are nuanced and complex so they are intriguing. Lord John was a secondary character in the Outlander series but he took on his own cult because of his nature and actions. We all love Jamie, including John Gray and now we love John Gray, too.
Yes. The plot was intriguing from almost the first line. He is out to have dinner with a friend and notices something he can't ignore but how does he find out the source of the problem. It is all about propriety in the 1700's and then he finds out there is a murder totally unrelated. It is a great novel.
Lord John is my favorite but Harry is a close second. The way the characters are described make you know that Harry is someone who probably has soup on his vest and likes to eat to excess. He also is known to Jamie in earlier books and the characters weave in and out. Jeff Woodman does a good job.
No extreme action. I just like all things about these characters and have every book in both audible and text and e-book. Call me addicted to all things written by Diana Gabaldon.
Can't say enough good things about this book and all the other books by Gabaldon. Get them if you have not heard them.
Maybe. I liked the first book and thought this one would be as humorous and interesting. I was disappointed in this book in that there was too much stuff going on that was not of a mystery nature. Matt was kinda boring to be honest. Fred Stella was excellent in capturing the emotions.
Hmmm. Not sure. It wasn't as good as the first book but if they were into yoga they would probably enjoy it. You definitely have to know yoga to understand this one.
I liked everything about his performance. He had the voices and inflections perfect.
Yes, maybe one more book to capture the crazy Barlow and find out what the nutty Chelsea is all about. Matt needs closure like to go back to police work. What kind of life can you have living hand to mouth and smoking dope all day long. Go ahead Mr. :Pollack write one more.
The voice of Rene Auberjonois made it superb. He is the voice of Pendergast. I love this series and am never disappointed. I wish Pendergast had been more involved but he was not himself in this book. Thank goodness he returned by the ending.
No comparison except to the other excellent novels by these two authors. Start at the beginning of this series and catch up if you haven't read them all. These are good enough to read again and again.
Everything. Mr. Auberjonois is a perfect voice for this elegant and demanding detective. No one else can read thee books.
I was ready to scream when the bad guys started after the two women who were trying to get to the special plants even though I knew it would have to be okay in the end. The suspense was made even more so by the different characters in the chapters. Excellent story.
Please, please keep Pendergast viable and alive for future cases. He is delectable. He and Commissario Brunetti are my favorites.
I liked having the two voices describing the differences between Ava and Gideon. Not sure this made it enjoyable because the story was just too, too icky. I liked the first three books very much and was anxious to get to this book so the story could be complete. But the story went backward with the band issues and with Gideon's former lovers and even with Ava and Gideon second guessing each other constantly. Perhaps knowing that this book and the incessant sex would end soon helped move the story along. Let's hope the next book finishes the story of these two lovers with a happy ending. I'd hate to have to have come this far and have their relationship fail. The best part was the ending.
You'd have to compare it to the other sexy love stories like 50 Shades of Gray but this book didn't have the feeling that you got from the first three books or by reading 50. I was disappointed with Book 4 in the Crossfire series and I really was anxious to get to it.
The two narrators bring the distinct differences in the attitudes of the two characters but even that didn't make the actions between Gideon and Ava feel comfortable. Let's make them love each other again without all the angst.
No. I don't think I would have been able to sit still. It made me want to walk around and throw something...not all the time...but enough that I couldn't have sat through it all in one sitting. The fact that I stayed with it says alot about my persistence to find out what's happening. I'll buy the next book too.
It is right up,there with other detective stories. It was too,short but I knew it was a short story.
Not really but it wasn't a mystery it was like a ghost story from his childhood. Pendergast is telling a scary story to his protege. It was good.
I always like Rene's performance as Pendergast. His voice is Pendergast. He has the drawl and the superior attitude down perfectly.
Nothing extreme. I just found it a very nice story.
Yes. The audible books add to,the story. It is like watching a play. The story seemed slow and Kay didn't Come across as her usual strong self. It seemed that Morino was more hostile than usual yet he seemed better than in the last book.
I liked Kay and Pete about the same this time. Putting him back in a cop role suits him better yet he still is her investigator. They are a team. Kay seemed to be unsure of herself, her husband, and niece. I,found this a weakness in her I didn't like. It all was okay in the end but it was too meandering.
Yes. I liked Lorelei and like her in other books. She has a good narration skill.
Yes. I thought it was slow with too much mental anguish on Kay's part.
Probably not. I didn't like it nearly as much as the earlier Reacher or the later Reacher books. This one was a bit flat. I mean what woman would pick up someone that looked like Reacher? Not a very smart one yet Carmen picked him up and then took him home. And he being Jack and having nothing more than his toothbrush, went along with her. It was just not a great book. Sorta like Lee Child threw in stuff just to get it over with.
In this book I think my favorite character was Ellie. She seemed to have it all together while her mother and Jack just seemed to stumble along.
Yes. I have listened to many of his performances. He does this one fine but he just doesn't have the material to work with. He is a terrific narrator.
Yes. I thought it was too long and the story was not very believable. But, having said that I listened to it and liked the ending best of all. Maybe it was because that finally Jack got to investigated and slap someone around.
Yes. The story is interesting and I like any man in a kilt. The aspect of time travel made it something I wanted to read while taking a break from The Outlander books. It was recommended by one of the Outlander Facebook groups so I decided to give it a try. I think most everyone who likes Scottish books will like this.
I liked True but Malcolm and Roblee were close seconds. Everyone just seemed to know what was going on except Malcolm and True but that was what we were supposed to expect. The fortune teller was a mystery to me from the beginning. I had no clue that she was who she wound up being. Everything was wrapped up with proper feelings protected. True and Malcolm are terrific.
Her reading made the characters come to life. She was even able to sound like the male characters. I didn't like the way she emphasized certain aspects in the beginning but after a while I got into her cadence and found her a pleasant storyteller. When reading text you don't get the nuanced phrasing that a good narrator provided. I much prefer audible books.
I especially loved the moment when Malcolm unwraps his new daughter and counts her toes. And then when young Hunter wanted to hold her and then wouldn't give her back. You could feel the love.
