This short story is amazing. The words flow with poetic grace and touch the heart and mind.
I think Scalzi is ever bit as good as Robert Heinlen at his best!
I can't wait to listen to the Ghost Brigades.
I love the mixture of humor, mystery, legend and supernatural in Ms. Briggs stories. Makes my commute someting to look forward to instead of dread.
I loved every minute of it. Its great to read about a big ugly guy who vanquishes evil and gets the beautiful girl to see that he's worth loving.
I love this series, but am fed up with the inconsistency of the leading character. In one chapter she's a sobbing wimp , and in the next she's a kick-a** super woman. First she can't do anything to chage her situation or save her world, then she suddeny begins to make things happen with no explanation as to what changed to allow this.
Being a Kim Harrison fan is like being in a bad relationship; you just have to finally realize that the other person isn't going to change and say "enough is enough!"
This story reads like an adult version of Robert Heinlen pulp fiction without all of the wierd sexuality. Just an all-around adventurous and funny story with great characters.
John Scalzi and now Larry Correia are becoming two of my all-time favorite writers.
Great story continues. Some parts were so touching, I found myself crying while I drove to work. But the parts are disjointed and the overall impression is one of a chaotic mixing of events and stories. Like the puzzle described in the book, each piece was beautiful in itself, but making them fit together seemed to be very difficult and not entirely successful. I do recommend you read this book, but I also recommend that the authors take more time to get them right before publishing.
I hope this book is a success and Lucy March writes many more. Her characters and plot are wonderful.
With Amanda narrating, the story reminds me of Molly Harpers' wonderful tales, but that's a very good thing.
Wish I could get a mug bunny of my very own!
I really like Ms Briggs characterization and story-telling ability.
The only issue I have is with her inclusion of a homosexual relationship in every book. It must be an important, "hot-button" topic for her, but she should remember that not everyone shares her viewpoint on that subject. I find it offensive and distasteful, and I wish she would "tone-it down" in her writing.
If Mercy Thompson is a God-fearing - church-attending - Christian, then she must be hearing a watered-down version of the Truth.
I love Charlaine's writing, and this book is a good as any other. I think her readers have gotten spoiled and can't wait for her to finish one story-line before she starts on something new. So my opinion is: for everyone to sit back, strap in, shut up, and enjoy the ride!
I grew up in a small town in the South and really can identify with the High School drama, hometown scandal and family conflicts. Adding superb mystery, humor, and teenage romance into the mix makes it a very compelling story you can't wait to hear more of.
The performance was excellent; the accents and manners of small-town SC are great.
Thanks Audible for introducing me to another great series.
I always enjoy Molly's stories. I'm currently collecting her paperbacks which aren't available on Audible (but should be).
The family is a little put-off by the language and sexual scenes. I wouldn't recommend these for a teenager, but I love to read/listen to good fiction written for adults.
There may be a lot of books on the market, but there are only a few good authors; and Molly Harper is one of the best.
Amanda Ronconi makes the characters come alive and does an excellent job of changing pitch to change characters. She really knows how to give Molly's southern-style humor it's maximum effect on the listener.
