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.
The narrator depicts Max with perfect humor. When things get back for St. Mary's, they just put on the tea pot and discuss it all. No task is too daunting, not even blood on the stones.
Dr. Who and other time travel stories are all similar but this series is special because of the history aspect, and Max and her historians. She brings you into her world with gusto.
No one specific. They are all good in their way and each transport is unique and different.
And the world went white---and then they land somewhere else.
Yes, yes, and yes. I love this series. Get book 1 and start the mad adventure of Max, Peterson, Leon and the other crazy historians at St. Mary's. You have to read it to know. Every story is a different adventure. The pod is their mode of transport like Dr. Who uses a phone booth.
Dr. Who comes to mind with the spinning phone booth winding up somewhere else. At least the pods are programmed for their destination.
Not a particular one but I do like the History Muse who shows up to tell Max to get on with her next special tour.
And the world goes white....just before you land somewhere else.
These books are exceptionally good. They are light with minimal sex scenes for those who prefer fantasy, and you don't really miss them. Max and Leon do 'get together' but you don't have to suffer through it with them. These are just good fun books for those who can suspend reality and enjoy fantasy.
It was the third book in this fabulous series of Max and the historians going back in time to see things confirmed or to see things that didn't happen as history states. The characters are crazy and fun. You must suspend your belief in fixed reality and just go with the flow. Max and Leon are terrific. The entire St. Mary's staff is wonderful. I will listen to this series again and again.
These are as good as Patricia Briggs Mercy Thompson series or any of Laura Vosika's time traveling Scot. It is just a fun read and Jodi Taylor is a hoot to have come up with this.
I've listened to the other books in this series and enjoy her portrayal of the characters. I like an English accent and Ms. Ramm does an excellent job.
I chuckled in a few places but her descriptions of the pod when they enter and the return to St. Mary's are always funny. It is just a feel good book.
Can't wait for the next book in the series.
I rank it in the top 20. I love this series by Christine Feehan. I bought them in paperback first and then got them in audio. This story is about Rachael who is escaping from her family into the rain forest. She doesn't know she is a leopard. The story unfolds when she meets Rio and then....the lust begins. The characters cross over from early books and continue into the later books of which there are now six. I have them all.
When Rachael first realizes that Rio is leopard and then she realizes that she is one as well. It is a good story and like the other paranormal love stories. Feehan makes you want more.
I like all of her narrations. She is a very talented narrator.
Yes. I've listened to it at least twice and will listen more. I like the stories and the characters and the sexy men who become leopard. Makes my heart go pitter patter.
Trust your feelings. They love each other and must get through some bad times to know that they do love each other enough to address their secrets together.
This is probably like a lot of books about love and obsession and sex but none come to mind. I found the issues that Alayne and Hudson address refreshing in that they know they have problems, he knows he screwed up, and she knows he screwed up, but they love each other and will find a way to be together.
She makes the characters live in the listener's mind. Her ability to convey the pain and lust they feel is not possible when read in print.
A couple of places I wanted to throw it across the room but since I was listening on my iPad I resisted. It was a good book.
I liked the way Alayne and Hudson understood each other's weaknesses and still were able to love each other. The way they met and then the way they overcame the flaws in their characters.
I liked the way that Hudson let Alayne knew his love was for her. He had never had a woman in his penthouse but he asked her to move in. I liked the way the book started out and the way their love for each other deepened. You could see them both grow more secure.
Alayne was my favorite. Even though she was damaged, she was aware of her limits and sought out her therapist when she felt herself spinning out of control. She was much stronger than she believed and this became more revealed as the story continues. This is the second book in the series of three but may be my favorite.
Yes. I always want to listed to a book in one sitting. I like the way the characters get into your psyche and make you want to learn more about them.
I like Alayne and Hudson and know anyone who likes romance and flawed characters who still manage to stay together with like these books. There are explicit sex scenes so some who prefer plain themes may not enjoy.
I didn't read the print version but I have to believe that any audio edition of a book is better than print if read by the right narrator and James Marsters is one of the best narrators.
I've read the earlier Dresden books and liked them all. I could compare them to Patricia Briggs Mercy Thompson Series since they have the same suspense and friendly characters. Never fear though, Harry Dresden is darker than Mercy Thompson.
He is Harry Dresden. Without Marsters these stories would not be the same. Keep him.
Nothing special. I liked it all.
It is right up there with the top ten. The author is superb and the story is so well done that you think you are in Cornwall in The Rose Garden. The narrator makes the story come alive. It is just simple wonderful.
I think it is as good as The Hands of Time Series by Irina Shapiro. Both are romance stories with a twist and both take place in 18th Century England. The stories are gripping and make you want to be right there.
I liked Claire a lot but my favorite was the major character, Eva. She copes so well with her appearing and disappearing. It is an amazing story and Eva finds her true love in Daniel.
I especially liked it when Oliver appears with the wine just as Eva disappears. The story evolves so that you don't know what is going to happen but everything happens perfectly.
It is a wonderful romance novel with time travel and a happy ending. What more can you ask for?
Absolutely. the narrator is superb and she brings the story and characters to life. She is able to perform the book as a play and you totally understand the depth of hate and love in the characters.
There were too many to mention. When Heathcliff finds out his love is married to someone else and when he returns to find her dead. This book is a classic gothic novel and you can almost feel the winds blowing across the moors. Poor Catherine and Edgar. There was never any hope for them.
I can't say enough good things about her performance. We already knew she was an exceptional actress with a wide range but this book performance was so totally gripping that it stayed with me for days. It was due to her performance.
Yes. I listened to this book because it was such a classic novel and now I understand. The depth of these characters and the way you can see Heathcliff's emotions and pain is raw. Hard to believe that this was the only novel written by Emily Bronte. Easy to see why the first reviewers in 1848 found it difficult. Yet, it has never been out of print and it still read as a classic gothic novel.
Heathcliff gives new meaning to a damaged person. His obsessive love made him insane and in the end, it was his love that killed him.
I was glad when Hudson was finished. I liked the first three books but this one told me more than I needed to know and there was too much repetition. But, still it was a good read.
