The first book in this series, Beat the Reaper is one of my favorites. this is not as good, but close. I am not one who enjoys listening to the F-word over and over, and frankly this book would be shortened considerably if you took it out. That, the obsessive sexual thoughts of the main character and some rathervisious politics are the down sides to this otherwise very enjoyable. book.It is a unique story line with crazy characters.The arguments were very entertaining. and scientific discussions interesting. It is Non Stop from start to finish. I will immediatly grab any book by this author.
This book is very,loudly, viciously political. Since I am an independant, with leanings to the republican side, I was at times uncomfortable with the vitriol especially against a currently living person who may or may not deserve it.Just to top it off this author ends this book with a diatribe on how the republicans have systematicly destroyed, our environment, monetary system, corrupted world governments, and will bring about world starvation perhaps in our lifetime all for individual political gain. I did not listen to it all. I just don't believe that the bad guys are all on one side in this world. I chose to ignore all of this and enjoy an otherwise entertaining book.
Wow. I loved this book. A slow start but it grabs you, and I loved the village and the characters! I wanted to go live there and know these people. Add in a murder mystery with its roots in the history of this region of France, and you have one of my favorite books.
Part of that was because I was so surprised by it.
Wrong title I think!
Give it a try!
I am going out to get a french cookbook!
I love SciFi but this was just not my cup of tea! I did not like the Characters. The story was so-so.
This one put me to sleep. This is SciFi? Why did they publish This?
A waste of my time and my credit!
This is one of those series that I tell everyone about! A mixture of history and Fantasy that really works! The Villains are great and the heroes are wonderful. Full of surprises and twists!
I always read the whole series from start to finish when a new book is coming out.
Taylor Anderson knows his stuff! Check out his website!
The only reason it got two stars is that I stayed with it as long as I did. Boring, Dull, Disappointing.
The reader Does not help, Very Bland! Maybe I am spoiled with some of the wonderful readers Audible gives us, but a boring reader does not help the book when it is already weak.
When are Vampires Not Vampires? I stayed interested enough to read the whole trilogy but I cannot recommend it. Three stars means I did not waste my credit but I won't recommend it or read it again. If you are looking for vampires, these are only sort of vampire like beings. No humor. An interesting twist though!
Not laugh out loud funny but amusing all of the way. The action never stops! It makes you wish Jane was real and really sent those tapes to Nathan. I just downloaded the next book. Bravo! I think I just found a new favorite for my author list!!! Narration was excellent also!
I enjoyed this book but I missed those "laugh out load moments I always get with Evanovich's Stephanie Plumb books.
I also was not thrilled with the narration. I just am not as happy with Scot Brick as a reader the way so many people are. I think his readings all sound the same with a certain cadence and don't portray the personalities of the protagonists like Susan Erickson or Lorelei King and many other talented readers. I hope if this is a new series they get a different reader next time.
I definitely enjoyed the story and I liked the characters quite a bit. The humor was there, but subtle. I do recommend this entertaining book, but if you are looking for a Stephanie Plumb, you won't find her here.
This time we see the Jersey shore recovering from hurricane Sandy. I really love the characters and the humor in this series. The Narrator really captured the voices and personalities, particularly of a female villain in the story. The story is really good, and the old adage, "no good deed goes unpunished" is amply demonstrated. I know that I miss some of the cultural references, since I am not a Bruce Springsteen fan, but that doesn't bother me. This series is always fun and lighthearted, even when it deals with the ugly crimes and people. I hope John Ceepak comes back for many more chapters.
I was disappointed with this book because I read a later book from the series first.
Anna fields is a narrator I don't care for. I just don't like her voice. She does a competent job, so draw your own conclusions.
Unlike many of Audibles Series offerings, The readers change throughout the series. They are all ok and don't ruin the books or mispronounce names, as is often the case in some of the other series I have listened to.
This book needs to be read for the character foundations, and it is an ok book. The later books are much better, with more intricate plotting, interesting stories and plenty of twists.
Read this one and then get the others in the series. You won't be disappointed.
