    Performance very good.The reason I finished book.

    When not in a long drawn out sex passage stories were ok.


    Any additional comments?

    What would have made Dead Ever After better?

    Book felt rushed. Cookie cutter style. Like a tv show that has to wrap up in an hour. Everything neatly comes together at the 55 minute mark.
    Some places too much details other places not enough. I guess writer was finished with the series's and just cranked this one out.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Charlaine Harris again?

    Yes if she does another series I will try it. Loved almost everything else she wrote.


    What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?

    She is sookie in my mind. Makes the story.


    What character would you cut from Dead Ever After?

    A couple at the end. Won't list them and give anything away but what was it 7 hour story and end with villains 15 mins max. :(


    Any additional comments?

    Series is a great read. Wish the same effort was used on this final book.

    What disappointed you about The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury?

    Story not very good. Suppose to be a zombie book. Too much time spent on characters lives and activities. First book was better held my interest. Most likely will not purchase another book of this series without some great rating.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga again?

    Only if it gets great rating from a lot of readers or listeners.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Narrator was not this books problem. Did very good job.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury?

    Wow scenes and sections I would cut would be at the sections I can't remember what the heck happen. Lost my interest.


    Any additional comments?

    No a horrible book, but not what I was looking for in an adventurous zombie story. Too many slow, no action sections.

    Would you listen to Once Burned again? Why?

    This is a great spin off of Frost's main books. Tavia Gilbert does a terrific job relaying the story to the audience. Book had me listening long after I finished my drive to work, that's how you know you have been hooked.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Standard inter play of character. Male character not typical made it more enjoyable not figuring everything out before it happen.


    What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?

    Made the characters come alive. Believable.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    As stated above. Book had me sitting in car listening to story long after I arrived at my destination.


    Any additional comments?

    Once burned is a great listen. Well worth the price.

    The ever after, the demonic realm that parallels our own, is shrinking, and if it disappears, so does all magic. It’s up to witch-turned-daywalking-demon Rachel Morgan to fix the ever-after before the fragile balance between magic users and humans fails. Of course, there’s also the small fact that she caused the ley line to rip in the first place, and her life is forfeit unless she can fix it.

    If you could sum up Ever After in three words, what would they be?

    Enjoyable, Just getting better all the time


    What other book might you compare Ever After to and why?

    Mercy Thompson Series, Sookie Stackhouse. Strong characters that don't always have solutions to the current problem they are facing.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    any of the action sequences


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the series continues, but I could very well see this one as an end. Really enjoyed this audiobook. Well worth it.

    For centuries, the woods have been a pivotal part of the wonder and danger of fairy tales, for once you enter anything can happen. Elves, druids, fairies - who knows what you will find once you dare step into the forest?

    And now, New York Times best-selling author Kim Harrison ventures into these mysterious, hidden lands of magic and mystery in her first short-story collection. Into the Woods brings together an enchanting mix of brand-new, never-before-published stories and tales from Harrison's beloved, best-selling Hollows series.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Now this is more like the Kim Harrison I like. More like a 4 1/2 star book. The fill in the gap story's of Harrison's hollows series are 5 star and very enjoyable.
    this collection of stories are worth every Penney you pay for book.

    Wouldn't mind seeing a couple of the last stories in the book become their own series just to see how they develop.

    If you like the hollows books this is defiantly one to read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Fills in the blanks in hollow series plus a couple totally new/different stories.


    Which character – as performed by Marguerite Gavin – was your favorite?

    She does great job. The pixies.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Very enjoyable. Some of the pixie comments will make you laugh


    Any additional comments?

    If you like the hollow series. Buy this book.

    What could be scarier than the first day of school? How about a crash course in the paranormal from Charlaine Harris and Toni L. P. Kelner, editors of Home Improvement: Undead Edition? Your worst school nightmares - taking that math test you never studied for, finding yourself naked in school assembly, not knowing which door to enter - will pale in comparison to these 13 original stories that take academic anxiety to whole new realms.

    Where does An Apple for the Creature rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Middle of the pack. Good read (listen) from some very good authors.


    Would you recommend An Apple for the Creature to your friends? Why or why not?

    I like these collection of stories to introduce myself to other authors. I found Ilona Andrews Kim Harrison and many others from these shirt story collections. A great way to sample various authors in one setting.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Performance if readers very good


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    These were shirt stories. Some action, some humor, some paranormal creatures.


    Any additional comments?

    I have quite a few of these collections from Harris, butcher and others. I think they are great for author introductions to the listeners.

    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cold Days?

    Friends finding out Harry alive


    What about James Marsters’s performance did you like?

    For me, he brings Harry Dresden to life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I'm waiting to get locked up for laughing out loud because of Jim's humor especially in crowded rooms with headphones on. People just stare.

    Jim butcher has remained a favorite author of mine. I enjoy his humor and another author, Mark Tufo, very much.
