This was such a disapointment. I am a big Neil Gaiman fan, but this book was so difficult to follow. Sometimes I think some books do not translate well to Audio, and for me this book is a prime example.
Possibly anyone that has not already listened to: The Hobbit, Mistborn, Game of Thrones, World of Time. This story is the result of if you take all of the books listed and put them in a blender.
Think I'll listen to some music for a while to clear my mental palate
The intonation of the characters were to exgerated
Can't think of any
I downloaded all three books....they were on special. I just reminded myself why I do not listen to an author that has low reviews unless I have listened to other books by the author and of course liked them.
Yes, because like friends are special so is this story
The end of the book which would be cruel to reveal
Yes, and as always they are exceptional
All of the tales of the elephants
I listen to 1 to 2 books a week. I have a farm and there is alot of tedious chores that need to be done, and my mp3 player gets me thru the tedium. Some times I listen to books that just pass the time, some are good, and occasionally like this one they are transporting that I will stop my just to listen. If you are an animal lover this book will resonate with you, dont pass it by
Dont read no-mo. I can clean horse stalls, drive to Phoenix whilst I listen to my books.Plus it doesn't hurt my eyes or give me a headache. MP3 Audio books are the best thing since See's chocolates.
The interaction between the 3 female cop leads
Smooth very smooth...just keeps you rolling along
Laugh out loud at some of the euphemisms
Definitely going to list to more of Ms Slaughters books
So very special
What was not to like. The story was well crafted and original. I listen to so many books and some are interesting, some are torture and some like this one are so very special. This book has moved into my top ten along with American Gods, Gollumn and the Jennie, Middlesex, The Magician series. Yep they are all different type of books but they all have one thing in common. They all were books that lingered, and remained with you so much that I re-listened to all of them at least twice
Narration added to the specialty of this book
Would not recommended it for a movie...somehow it would be transformed to fast food..which at first sounds good but you always end up regretting it
This book is well worth your time and credit, get it you will not regret it
Author crafts her story with great characters, which move the storyline with ease. Author is in the same club with Jodi P., Ann P., She also doesn't use needless sex for page fillers
She is the Authors Voice that brings this book to life
Where is book two?
Marco Effect re-done
His characters are very distinct
This book is the same book as Marco Effect. Different name different narrator. It was interesting to see how the two narrator portrayed the characters. I downloaded this in error thinking that audible made a typo with it listed also being book fiveof dept Q. I could have returned it but did not. I am a fan of Dept Q. Very unique group of investigators. Assad and his camel colloquialisms make me laugh out loud.
The lack of continuity for the use of all the sexual reference. It reminded me of young boy that is fascinated by the use of swear words and body parts.
NO NO NO
Would not have published it. The only reason that it was published was because he is CF
I was really disappointed in this book. I watch the late show (not anymore) and considered CF to be a pretty witty fellow. But this book is horrible, the ramblings, the constant reference to body parts. The man is obsessed with pr**ks, and t**t. This is the 3rd book in 3 years I have not finished and I read 1 to 2 books a month.
This book could be Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood series) went thru a time warp and stepped out in the 19th century, and her southern accent was replaced with an upper crust english accent. Haven't decided if I want to continue the series, just as in TB this book has sex scene that just really are not necessary to the story.
Jim Dale Yes
Erin M No
The creation of the performers of the nite circus, Didn't care for the love story
Yes, fantastic as usual
Nothing I would watch
I could see this book appealing to romantic readers, which I guess makes me not one
I'm on to book four, yep, I'm invested into this series, book 3 is defenetly worth listening to book 2. The first two books are just a launching point for the series. I don't think the series really sets its own tone until book three, which I enjoyed.
