This one put me to sleep. This is SciFi? Why did they publish This?
A waste of my time and my credit!
If you like plenty of Raunchy sex, stupid repetitive jokes and constant bad language in normal conversation this is for you. It is NOT for me. The reader is annoying so that did not help. Skip this one. I couldn't finish it.
OK, Beautiful girl who doesn't think she's beautiful, though almost every man she meets hits on her, meets gorgeous man with scar who thinks he's ugly. Of course it's lust at first site. She's a medium and he's a bootegger cursed into seeing ghosts fom his past. That is the interesting part of the story. If you've read romances before, you know the romance part of the story. No suprises there. The writing is good, and the story is entertaining.
The sex parts weren't as bad as many I've read. Though I enjoy romance, I don't really like much sex in books, and please skip the thrust by thrust details! Leave it to the imagination. Not too bad, but not one I will read again.
I like SciFi, and this is supposed to be a classic, so I kept listening for 10 hours! what a waste! I kept thinking it had to get better. Even the action was boring. Slow story, laid back reader, sleep inducing!
Why was this a classic???????
Good characters, good reader, tense, edge of your seat story. This would make a good movie. Some great plot twists add to the fun. I will definately be checking out the other books by this author!
This isn't a genre I normally read, but it transcends any genre. Like other reviewers, I wont tell you what it is about or what happens except that it is a story of a remarkable child and the people around her. I read all 13+ hours without stopping except when absolutely nescessary. This is a special and suprising story with lots of twists. It might give you nightmares, but you won't soon forget it!
This is an excellent series, but I missed Ramses (The Emerson's young but highly entertaining son and my favorite character) on this trip to Egypt, though his letters were my favorite part of the book.
One of the most striking parts of this book is the very unsympathetic portrayal of Emerson. He is verbally abusive, rude to everyone, stuborn, and generally very unlikable. These traits are usual in Emerson, but not to this extent and are usually softened by good deeds and goodheartedness that is not in evidence in this book.
It is very hard to see what Amelia sees in him to love. I would have run screaming in the other direction, regardless of how handsome he was!
I also found unbelievable the successful disguise of the so called "Master Criminal".
Still it is a part of this good series, and this book needs to be read to continue.
On to the next book, and I hope things are back to normal.
Ramses, a precocious 7 year old, is the star of this book. I laughed out loud at his opinions, antics, and triumphs over his parents, egypt, criminals, and everything else.
Lots of fun!
This classic series narrated by the incomparable Barbara Rosenblat is great fun.
Lots of humor, lots of great characters, and an indomitable parasol wielding heroine, who can bully and control anyone but her lovable Bull of a husband, and her brilliant rascal of a son. Archaeology in the victorian era in egypt is a background for intrique, mystery and murder, with the Emersons on the trail of the murderer as long as it doen't interfer too much with the completing next great find ahead of the professional thieves and incompetent government officials. I highly recomend it! Enjoy!
I am a fan of Amanda Quick's books even though they are always the same formula. There is usually a good enough story and interesting enough characters to allow me to deal with the formula romance, which is always the same.
This time it did not work for me. The story got a little convoluted and was hard to follow.
I did not hate it but I kept losing focus, missing a chapter or two because my mind wandered, and had to go back. I almost stopped and decided to go to another book.
I enjoyed this book quite a lot. The Idea of an alien race needing an hollywood agent to be introduced to earth is creative and funny. Lots of humor including some laugh out loud moments with a wise cracking alien that looks like a jello mound.
Now I am someone who does not think that bad language enhances a story but often detracts from it, so when the 1st sentence of the book included an F-bomb I was worried.
There is some language, but not enough to ruin the book and the main culprit was a very discusting person who was not in the book for long. I enjoyed the story and the characters. The reader did an excellent job.
Good lighthearted read! I recommend it.
