    Ex-reporter Joe Winder had been working in the public relations department of a sleazy family entertainment park, The Amazing Kingdom of Thrills, when he chanced upon a news-breaking story inspired by the disappearance of two blue-tongued voles and the bizarre death of Orky, the killer whale.

    Where does Native Tongue rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Compared to other audio books this was good - not great. The pacing felt a bit slow - although the narration suited the pace of the story so I can't blame the reader.


    Any additional comments?

    It was well read, and as it progressed the story became more engaging. Towards the end I laughed out loud at a few points. Overall, I'd recommend the book and urge patience as you wait for the story to kick into gear. The narrator did a great job.

    Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    Stephenie says: "Great series. Worth every credit."

    I enjoyed this - its a light supernatural caper type story that moves at a good pace and grips your interest. The narration grew on me. At first the cockney accent given the character Bones grated, but by the end of the book I had come to appreciate the narrator's skill in differentiating characters and her consistency.

    Stephen Sheerin was born to play on Broadway - or at least, under it. He's a musician, a conductor, and his dream is to music-direct a big Broadway musical. After years of toiling in the pit of some of the best-loved (and loathed) hits on the Great White Way, he's just been given his big break. Can life really be going that well? Of course not.

    Michael says: "A *must-have* for any fan of Broadway or humor!"
    "So Much Fun"

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    How can you have a favourite character in a book chock full of such colourful personalities?


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Stacey and Stephen were both hilarious, and Ronald was also pretty droll.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a fan of CBC's Wiretap, you will adjust quickly to the narrator's style, otherwise - give it a few chapters and he will grow on you! Funny book, great pacing and wonderful narrators. You are in for a great listen with this story.
