Not sure if it was the narrator or what, I didn't enjoy this audio book as much as the books I have read... Cherry makes a great Lady President on the show "24", but I'm not sure she has a career in narrating books! Sorry, I like her on 24, but didn't think her voice was that good...
Although the lead character is a 16 year old girl, I would highly recommend this book for all ages! Jazz was left horribly disfigured after a car wreck that killed her mother. After a long bout with depression her father feels that it might be best if they both move to an animal refuge in Africa. Although Jazz is unhappy in London, she doesn’t want to leave the home and all the memories that they shared with her mother. Soon after arriving in Africa, Jazz rescues an orphaned leopard cub. This is the beautifully written story of her journey.
Only negative is way too much use of the word "boogie". Was this written in the 70's - anyway still a good story.
I found this story a bit flat.
Not sure why but it wasn't as engaging as the other books by Rbt Crais.
No character development - didn't like anything about it! I'm shocked it has such a high rating. The story was absolutely ridiculous!!!!
I enjoyed the characters and the writing was very good. It is a really fast read and you don't have to think a lot. If you are looking for a quick read (or listen in this case) for that boring airplane ride, this is a good choice!
I love this series! The Lexi character is so realistic. Geeky, unsure of herself, doesn't realize just how awesome she is! This book is a lot of fun because it takes you to Europe and the scenes with Slash and his Nonna are hilarious! I don’t know which man Lexi will end up with, but I know it will be a fun journey along the way! I can’t wait for the next one!
Don't let the funny name discourage you from listening to this book. This novella reads like a complete full-length mystery. It is well written and the characters are well developed and enjoyable. This is a fun, fast little mystery that I think many will enjoy.
First of all the sound was bad, you could hear every time the narrator turned a page. The narrator could probably be better with a little practice (I noticed she hasn't narrated any other books on Audible). Her voice isn't bad, just needs to work on inflection. All this was a distraction from a very well written mystery. I kept listening because the story was interesting. Note to author or publisher - get better audio!
This is one case where the book was not as good as the show. It was interesting to see how the whole show started with this book, but I didn't find the book particularly entertaining.
This book was a super fun listen. Yes, the story line is a bit of a reach, but it is written so well that it doesn’t matter and in fact the craziness of the plot makes it that more enjoyable. I for one have enough of real life situations and enjoy reading something that can take me away from my ordinary life. The main character is a mom and is trying to keep her marriage together which most of us can relate to, but her situations are completely crazy and so funny that it will make you laugh. If you enjoy fun, fast paced mystery, intrigue and complete escapism then this is the book for you. BTW, the narrator is absolutely FABULOUS!!!
