I love this series but this particular book is even shorter then it looks. Over HALF is short scene tellings of the previous books in the series. Personally they should have put this in the free for members section.
A little entertaining but not really worth a credit.
One redeeming factor, they had the same great narrator.
Kleinman? No. Absolutely NO.Jolson? It will be hard to distance her from this book but her performance was good.
This is a search for absolution. Trying to clear her conscience in case her family, husband, or church found out about her forays into the 'dark side'.
So I listened to My Life as a Dyke and all I can tell ya is.. don't bother.. it was more like 'I experimented but really prefer guys' book and she (the author) was a kid.. fledgling sixteen year old adventures, Finding alternatives to immature boys with butch dykes.If you are looking for an uplifting book that helps you accept who you are then do NOT listen to this one. If you are looking for an arguments on how being a homosexual is not from nature but from nurture then maybe, maybe, you might find a crumb here to justify the hour. It's one hour I won't get back... How many books will Audible let you return?
There was nothing *horrible* about it.. but it was almost like reading cliff notes of someones diary but without enough to know anything about the person let alone care. I do think the author has potential.. you could envision what was being described but there was just not enough of it.
In a general sense, I cannot think of anyone in my circle that would want to listen to this. Maybe if one of their daughters was thinking about enlisting they would get some insights.
A man? A man reading a woman's experiences? Really? And, the pace was not done inthe conversational tone I think it was written in. It was near monotone and made the recruit sound less then intelligent.
I feel sorry for the author/recruit. She obviously wanted to serve. But it also got me angry that the suicides were treated so commonplace and that it appeared the training personnel seemed so callous about it.
This is way over priced for what you get. In fact.. it should almost be given away free just for the author to get some exposure. There is no substance to this story and the narration just did not fit at all.
I absolutely loved books one, two, and three. Book 4 was..ok. Better then nothing but not as good as the first trio.
Book 5, lets be nice and put it this way: if you liked 4 you should like this one. If you thought 4 was a let down, you will hate this one.
Nightrunner, to me, implies the trade and action of the first 3 books.. these last two volumes almost seem completely disconnected with the ideas and premise of the former books. While the characters have the same name and history, they act as if they were different people. The book goes into more a bad moral story then the high adventure that got me into the books in the first place... The main plot was around the thing begot in #4 that I couldn't have cared less about. To be honest, there was nothing that made me care anything and anyone in the book.
Listen to a sample before spending a credit. I wish I had.
I love this series. The first 3 books I could not stop until they were over.
This book was just as good in storyline/plot BUT..
They changed narrators. Adam Danoff does a respectable job but for some reason I was not as tied into the characters. Maybe it is because I am already used to Raymond Todd.
Well worth a listen but a slight let-down from the expectations I had.
Just so there are no surprises.. the two main characters are in love and male. The detail is NOT excessive but these are meant for adults (especially when you compare them to the current run of vampire books).
Not a bad story at all and the narrator did a fair job of building suspense but not really winding it up as tight as it could have dong.
My only beef... a story less then an hour should not be a whole credit. Come on Audible!
I am actually upset I gave a credit for this. This is the worst READER, yes, reader - NOT narrator, I have ever heard. I think most 6th graders could read better.
I don't even know if the actual book is any good because I could not get past how it was being orated.
NOT WORTH A CREDIT OR THE TIME TO LISTEN
Flewelling offers us a full flavored reading (or listening) experience. I absolutely loved this series.
With a great plot and unexpected twists, Traitor's Moon is a great book. But, we also get tragedy, characters or love (or hate), politics, and power plays. I have to make sure I listen on w weekend so my work isn't interrupted.
For those upset because there is sex or gay characters, get your books from a church or kids section. This is tame compared to most popular fiction out there.
