I want to be fair but I didn't find most of the stories very intriguing. I bought the book to get the novella by Diana Gabaldon, 'The Space Between' and liked it a lot but the other stories I found to be just so-so. It was worth the read but I would not have bought it had it not contained Diana Gabaldon. So, I'm suggesting that any anthology with her in it will sell.
Not much to be done with a collection of this many stories. They were all enjoyable just not overwhelmingly enjoyable.
I prefer Davina Porter to read British and Scottish accents. Otherwise, the narrators were okay.
I commend the editor for collecting these stories. I'm sure the individual authors are all superb but if it had not contained the novella by Diana Gabaldon I would not have bought it.
Yes. I think Harry Dresden is one of the best characters around. If you like magic and strange characters, this is the book series for you. Harry is a wizard consulting for the Chicago police to solve mysterious murders. Believe me they are strange too.
I like all Patricia Briggs books but this is very like her Mercedes Thompson series. Harrynand Mercedes would make a good team.
He is Harry. He gives Harry the personality and brings him to life.
Yes, there just might be wizards among us. Ask your neighbor.
Knowing it was written so long ago but still relevant today. Good conquers evil if we try hard enough....usually.
When Gerta is talking to thebflowersvandbthen finds the crows. It is a lovely story throughout.
This was my first experience with Ms. whelan but I will seek her other performances now. She is ver good.
Not all fairies are nice. But we knew that.
Jack's Loyalty Excessive.
None. I didn't like it as much as earlier Reacher novels and I've read them all. In this one Jack seemed outdone but he always figured out the situation. Lee Child's must have lots of index cards for reference because the plot twists and turns until it's hard to remember why Jacj was sent. That's the clue.
Yes. I like all of his performances. His voice is good for all the strong make leads but especially when the hero is military or police.
Catch Me If You Can.
Harry teams with a Knight to save the underdogs. I like the team effort this book describes.
The involvement of so many magical characters. Even his fairy godmother shows up. You are pretty sure he will win the day but the fear of the human was a surprise.
Yes. Mr. Marster is Harry.
Yes. I enjoy audible books but this one made me want to find out what happened.
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.
