The narrator was first rate and made immersion reading on the Fire HD a great entertainment experience.
The thriller was well-written with an abundance of comedic elements.
I had purchased and read Diary of a Small Fish last year. The writing is excellent and I enjoyed the humor and legal wrangling. Since it was written in the first person voice of the main character, Paul Forte, I had a little difficulty, as a female reader, staying in the story.
Nonetheless, when the author offered the audio book on Goodreads I was anxious to give it another go. I am so glad I did as the narration by Keith Sellon-Wright is absolutely perfect for the main character. Mr. Sellon-Wright also did a superb job of conveying the character when he narrated female character dialogue.
Small Fish is a very enjoyable book and the Audible version takes the story to a whole new level. Kindle version purchased and Audible version received from the author. My opinion is my own.
Two best friends, Josephine and Fanchon, move from Louisiana Cajun country to NYC. At Josephine's urging, Fanchon goes out on a date with a guy encountered on am internet dating website. Upon her return home, she discovers the dismembered body of Josephine.
The detective , Banyon, assigned to investigate accompanies Fanchon as she brings her friend's body home to Louisiana and standard chuckles ensue as he meets the stereotypical natives.
Returning to NYC, Fanchon stumbles upon the real murderer and Banyon charges in yo assist her. It could be that this book hit me at just the right time as I laughed out loud several times while reading it and listening to it. I would tend to characterize it as a cozy mystery although the set-up and denouement is more bizarre than the standard cozy.
I read this through whispersync and thoroughly enjoyed the narrsyot and her voices. I bought the kindle book and received the Audible book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine alone.
Second book in the Saints Mystery series takes place mostly in New Orleans as Fanchon recovers from the injuries suffered at the hands of the killer in book 1. These injuries include a severely broken leg which does not allow the MC to bear weight although it is casted.
This short volume was a serviceable mystery but lacked much of the humor from the first book. I never imagined the strange twist at the end concerning the identity of main characters. The amount of traveling the MC managed with a severely broken leg was incredible but the phrase that drew me up short was at the end where the MC sits crosslegged before her dead BF's crypt. I totally can't see it with the cast needed for her injury.
The narrator did a very good, but not outstanding, job. However, I am interested enough in the series to want to read the next one. Currently it is not available on Audible so I may wait a few months and borrow through Kindle Unlimited. I bought the Kindle book and received the Audible version in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
This is a bit of a zany tale with characters based on Alice in Wonderland. The narrator was superb and added to the laugh out loud enjoyment of many of the crazier situations in the book.
Second in the Chubby Chicks series. This story focuses on and is narrated by Bezu as she attempts to keep her family home by taking in boarders. One of the boarders is poisoned by eating her muffins and Bezu, with help from Cat, must solve the crime.
Nice cozy mystery read through Kindle and listened through Audible using immersion reading. The narrator did a wonderful job bringing the various characters to life. While some parts of the story strain credibility, it is overall an enjoyable read with captivating characters
Enjoyable little cozy read through Whispersync/Immersion reading. The narrator does a great job of voicing all the different characters.
The book is populated by zany, quirky characters with the main ones being members of the Chubby Chicks Club. One of their members die and two members, Cat and Anna Mae, work together to prove it wasn't a suicide and to solve the murder. The Quirky and appealing nature of these characters makes it possible to overlook the few implausible parts of the story while some of the situations they find themselves in are truly funny.
Incredible that in such a short book the relative importance of life, marriage, family, career, and death should all be captured.
Recommended for everyone. Simon Prebbles performance is first rate.
Sinful Folk ranks in the top echelon of all audiobooks I have listened to over the past 20 years. The story of medieval peasants seeking justice for their sons' death is compelling and relating their journey through Mear makes it even more so.
I cannot praise the narrator, Anne Day-Jones, highly enough. She was able to portray each of the characters effortlessly and her facile switching to flawless French when called for by the text was remarkable.
I read and listened to both the Kindle and Audible versions through Immersion Reading and highly recommend either or both. I generally do not reread books but this may be the only Audible book I will actually listen to again.
Totally unrealistic in some of the portrayals of the workings of the US gov't.
I was considering 3 stars until the Epilogue where the protagonist, the President, laments the ticking of her biological clock and decides she will have a baby with or without a husband.
The narrator was a tad cloying.
My. TBR is large and the accompanying echoes (audible companion books) numerous.
Not without checking reviews
But there were many other scenes that needed strengthening and a bit of research into the workings of the US government.
Most entertaining imersion reading experience. I stayed with kindle and audible books until done.
Super narrator/performer for this series. He captured Leo and his misfit band perfectly.
