I absolutely loved this book. It was an excellent read and definitely fun for the older reader as well. It keeps you on the edge of your seat and you really are not sure how things will turn out, for the better or not?
But I was not let down and I don't think anybody else would be either. Read it! :-)
I don't think so. I was not really drawn into the book. I found it interesting but not great and it got into a lot of legal stuff, all of which did not make a lot of sense unless you were willing to do research and who wants to research a book? It lacked depth of the characters as well. I didn't feel I knew the characters any better by the end of the book than I did when I started.
I'm not sure at this time. There was nothing particularly wrong with her narration it just lacked .. i don't know.. color. It seemed so black and white, if that makes sense.
I would say that it was definitely time well-spent but it left a lot to be desired. I felt the book moved terribly slow in some spots and just right in others. I enjoyed re-visiting all the old characters from the past books and a few new ones.
When it came to finding the artifacts .. the book slowed so much. I realize the book was about finding the artifacts and old family feuds but I guess it just got old and there was not enough action till the end of the book, when it all came together.
Amanda Ronconi's performance was good and she did an alright job with the accents, but again.. it was just lacking something.
Definitely not. Not enough action. I'd be sleeping before it was done.
Don't get me wrong it was a good book, I guess I was just disappointed with the book as a whole.
I do not know, as I have not read the print edition to this book and doubt I ever will.
It was a sweet love story, as we're all the books in this series. If you enjoyed the others you will most likely enjoy this one. In a sense all the books follow a story pattern. Just the characters have changed. Still it is cute and leaves you with a happy heart and a smile.
Kind of stuffy. I don't know. I didn't particularly care for him but thought he did a decent enough job and you could for the most part always know who was talking just by the voice.
The ending probably moved me the most. It was a feel good kind of book.
There are quite a few love making scenes in this book. Usually I would not mention this but sometimes there can just be too much where it boarders on being smut.. this one got very close to being just that. Tastefully done of course.
I have not read the printed version but would like to.
Lorelei King is one of best. When she does her thing you cannot tell she is reading from a book. She is spot on and every character has its unique voice and accent.
This book made me laugh and cry. You can't help but love the main characters where you are always hoping everything will work out for the best. Unfortunately that doesn't always happen. I think this is the best series of books I have ever read. The last book was a little off but Ms. Jones pulled it off once again. I can't wait for the next book in the series.
If you have read and enjoyed all the other books in this series, i'd suggest you read this one as well. It will leave you just a little bit different than when you started it. With a big smile on your face!
This book wasn't exactly what I had been hoping for. Actually I am not sure how I even made it to the end. Let's face it, the book was boring. It had no substance to it. Even the characters you do not get to know well. The entire book was focused on a house full of women that had to fight and bicker constantly, with a few dead bodies thrown in for good measure. How it could even claim to be a mystery book is beyond me as well. I guessed right away who it was because there was only a handful of people it could of been.
The performance was absolutely horrible. It sounded like someone was reading a book to me and not doing a very good job of it. At one point in the book she was actually reading with her nose plugged. It sounded so awful that I burst out laughing.
Both the author and the narrator need to get new jobs.
I enjoyed this book but not as well as the previous ones. Don't get me wrong, it was indeed an excellent book but this one seemed a little fragmented, harder to follow and know what is going on.
The most memorable would be at the end when we find out Charley is pregnant. You can't help but feel pride for Charley and Reyes.
Ms. King's performance was spot on as usual. I don't think anybody else could fill her shoes in this performance or any of the previous ones. You can always tell who is speaking, especially if you have listened to all the books in the series.
Yes and I almost did. I think I finished it off in three listens.
I sadly would have to agree with a few of the other reviewers, that this book was just not as good as the others. It was just lacking something I really can't put my finger on. I am a little reluctant to buy the seventh book but I will, just because I have so much invested in this series. I can't just walk away now.
This book was alright. I'd say it was definitely worth my time but it did need improvement in some areas. The main character, I'd say she was more ditzy than anything else and the questions. Always questions. She asked the same questions over and over again through out the book. So many questions and second guessing herself that it almost made me want to pull my hair out. Also, some of the situations she put herself in was just plain stupid. Kind off like walking out in front of a moving vehicle and hoping you don't get run over.
I thought her performance was pretty spot on. She has a very nice voice and played all the characters well.
Yes. I probably would go see it. Just to see if all the commotion going on in Veronica's mind calmed down.
I was not that impressed with this book but it was good and anybody who likes a little bit of mystery would probably enjoy this book. It was worth the credit I spent on it.
Keeps your attention.
I thought she did an excellent job with all the voices though it seems like those with that new Orleans drawl all sounded the same.
I both laughed and cried while reading this book. The crying part definitely caught me off guard though because the books have been a pretty light read. I guess it was too easy to get emotionally involved in the characters, a sign of a good book if you ask me.
If you read the first book in the series and enjoyed it you will definitely like this one.
It pretty much starts where the last one left off, with the axeman ready to make his come back into this world and resume his bloody rampage... leaving it up to Peyton to stop him.
I have not read the print version, but I imagine it would be just as good as the audio.
It had a great ending that left me smiling and in a good mood.
This was the first time hearing Ms. Motyka's, but i loved her performance. She did a great job with all the voices.
What moved me the most was the main characters need to help Dorian. Though at times it seemed so drawn out and moved slowly. Dorian was slowly turning to stone again and instead of working on the book, which she should of been doing she was taking long leisurely baths and slowly sipping her tea and taking long walks. Didn't remind me of someone who should of been busy saving Dorian.
The book was very good just too drawn out.
I've listened to a lot of audio books. I have no way to rate the best but I'd say this book rates as one of the best.
I like the way Charley has evolved. Her snarkiness is about the same and she still has a knack for pissing people off but her heart is expanding and she is learning about forgiveness. She is also learning more about her powers as the grim reaper. Rock on Charley!
I have listened to her other performances and have never been dissatisfied. She has a great voice that never grates on your nerves and she performs each character well.
Yes. At the end of the book when her and her father begins to understand each other better and she finally begins to forgive him. Very touching.
This was a great book. I would recommend it to anybody that enjoys this type of book. But start at the beginning with book one so you can better understand Charley and what she has been through.
