Absolutely, I already have. The story was dynamic and fresh, the characters were believable and plot moved at just the right pace. In the end, I was so satisfied with the initial book but am still left wanting more, more, more!
I loved the concept of the Tarot being real beings. Kresley Cole brought a completely new supernatural idea to life and did it well.
Emma Galvin was perfect! Loved her accent, loved the accents of her charactures (Jackson - be still my heart) loved the pace - everything! Keith Nobbs did a great job with his portrayal of a disturbed person - gave me goosebumps.
(Spoilers) The ending when Jackson had come for Evie, but when he found her and realized what she was, seemed to reject the idea of being with her.
Fantastic listen - highly recommended and wished we didn't have to wait for the next one!!!
Yes, Khristine Hvam did an excellent job.
There were so many....but I would have to say the most memorable was when Ash promised to lead Megan to the Iron King and almost died in doing so.
Fabulous performance all the way around. I heard every character loud and clear and loved them all because of her performance.
I have not read the print version, however, I would have to say, yes, the audio edition is better. I read a lot of books and listen to a lot of books and Dearly, Departed was just one of those books you know you have to listen to and it was one of the best listens I have experienced. With all of the different narrators, I was completely drawn into this story and this world Ms. Habel has created. I am hoping the next book, Dearly, Beloved, will arrive on audio soon. I have been waiting quite impatiently.
I'm not really sure there is anything out there, at least that I have read, that could be compared to Dearly, Departed. I do see it more of a love story than anything. Obviously, there are many different social and economic issues/themes throughout the book. For me, however, it was all about Bram. He is such a unique hero/love interest and all around interesting person, I came away wondering how the love between Nora and Bram could last and what that entire situation would be like.
There were four narrators and they brought the story to life in a way I could not have experienced if I had read it.
More like a dull ache of sadness for Bram and the others like him.
