    Story
    (2432)

    Victorian romance mixes seamlessly with elegant prose and biting wit—and werewolves—in Gail Carriger’s delightful debut novel. Soulless introduces Alexia Tarabotti, a parasol-wielding Londoner getting dangerously close to spinster status. But there are more important things than finding a husband. For Alexia was born without a soul, giving her the ability to render any vampire or werewolf completely powerless.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Soulless to be better than the print version?

    Sorry, haven't read the printed edition.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Soulless?

    A most memorable moment was when Alexia's family confront her in the parlor.


    What about Emily Gray’s performance did you like?

    She injects the right amount of interest and character to the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I got this book because it sounded interesting in the summary, and I would get others in the series, I enjoyed this one so much.

    Mr. Satterthwaite and Colonel Melrose are comfortably ensconced in the Colonel's study when the phone suddenly rings. Someone has been murdered, and, as the county chief constable, the Colonel lets Satterthwaite accompany him to the scene of the crime. The two of them have opposing opinions on why Sir James Dwighton has been bashed over the head with a blunt instrument. Rumor had it that red-haired beauty Laura Dwighton and her guest, the very attractive Mr. Paul Delangua, were engaged in an illicit affair, and Paul was thrown out by the disgruntled Sir James. But the facts of the murder all seem to add up too nicely....

    Art critic Jeremy Grove is found dead, his face frozen in a mask of terror. His body temperature is grotesquely high; he is discovered in a room barricaded from the inside; the smell of brimstone is everywhere... and the unmistakable imprint of a claw is burned into the wall. As more bodies are discovered - their only connection the bizarre but identical manner of death - the world begins to wonder if the Devil has, in fact, come to collect his due.

    Gary says: "Be very aware of Pendergast"
    "A Great Listen"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Brimstone the most enjoyable?

    Preston and Child bring their characters to life in the most interesting way. Their interaction really moves the story along, and involves the reader.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Brimstone?

    The finding of each of the bodies almost makes your hair stand on end.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scenes(s) at the Italian castle are memorable for their descriptiveness and action.


    Any additional comments?

    I personally prefer Rene Aborjonois to Scott Brick as a reader for this series. Aborjonois brings the character of Pendergrast to life better in my opinion.

    It was just another after-work happy-hour bar downtown, where business professionals unwound with a few drinks, complained about the boss, maybe hooked up with someone for the night. Until something went terribly wrong. At first it was just a friction in the air. The noise intensified. The crowd seemed oppressive. Some sharp words were exchanged, some pushing and shoving. Then the madness descended. And after 12 minutes of chaos and violence, 80 people lay dead.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    absolutely, the reader brings the story and the characters to life so convincingly in each book that you really want to follow their adventures. The stories themselves tend to become rather familiar, but always exciting, and always to the advancement of the series in general.


    What did you like best about this story?

    as always the reader makes the characters individuals, even the male characters take on a distinctive persona which makes you relate well to all of them.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    She has the ability to make each character, male or female become their own distinctive person and character, she is one of the best readers ever, male or female, she brings every character, male or female to life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, just enjoyed the way the story line moves along and develops the characters in this series

    With the precision of a surgeon, a serial killer preys on the most vulnerable souls of the world's city streets. The first victim: a sidewalk sleeper, found dead in New York City. No bruises, no signs of struggle. Just a laser-perfect, fist-sized hole where his heart had once been.

    If you could sum up Conspiracy in Death in three words, what would they be?

    Gritty, sexy, romantic


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Ther is always a twist to the endings and great action endings


    Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen – was your favorite?

    Always love the character of Peabody


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The sarcasm that J D Robb uses is always dry and funny


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone who does not like Susan Ericksen as a narrator is not listening well. She makes these books, her characters are rich and each one is individual, makes you appreciate all the nuances of the characters. I have enjoyed all her readings.
