Right at the bottom. The narrator is all wrong for this book. Her voice is grating and annoying and I found it took away from the great story.
The ending was very action packed, so I'd have to say it's one of the best parts of the story.
Yes. The narrator was so wrong for this book. The accent and tone were too much. I really was distracting and took away from the great story. I wish the author would consider finding a different voice in the future. I will not be buying another audiobook in this series if the same narrator continues.
Yes and no. I had a love hate relationship with this one. Loved the story, hated the voice.
I really cannot recommend this audiobook to anyone because of the narrator. It was such a huge problem for me. I have listened to other narrator and some were bad, but this one takes the cake. I'd tell someone to buy the book and read it manually, great story....horrible narrator.
No, I don't think I will continue with Kristen Ashley. Maybe a book voiced by Susannah Jones. The story was just not my cup of tea.
No. I didn't really like the characters too much and the male characters more importantly were jerks. Kind of a turn off when you're supposed to be rooting for the female character to get with one of them.
No. I was excited at first, but the characters became unlikable. Too overbearing, macho and controlling.
I'm not sure. I really love Amy Poehler, but this book was just too chaotic for me. There were too many voices and the stories just jumped around. I simply lost interest. Maybe this is one book that needs to actually be read in a physical form.
Sadly, yes. I was hesitant to buy this because I hadn't read too many of this genre. I will probably not listen to anymore.
I loved Amy Poehler, but the other voices just made it kind of confusing for me. I think this might a book to read, rather than listen to. Maybe if it were just Amy's voice it would have been better.
I liked the honesty of the book, but I didn't finish it. I simply could not continue. Which makes me sad. I may check it out from my library to read it again.
I read White Girl Problems and really enjoyed it, however I just couldn't get into Psychos. So, I'm not sure if I'd try another go at Babe Walker.
I couldn't even get through the entire book. I stopped listening because I just could not do it anymore.
I actually liked the narrator, so my dislike for this book had nothing to do with her.
I liked how Babe was trying to become a better person, but it still wasn't enough to hold my interest.
I'm not really sure what the issue was with this book, I guess it just wasn't for me.
This book ranks pretty high in my audiobook collection. I have never read a book quite like this before and was surprised by how much I needed the story to continue. I was totally drawn into Joe's world.
Joe was by far the best character. Even though he was flawed, you couldn't help but feel for the guy. Hell, I related to him in a sense!
I loved how he brought the character of Joe to life. Fontana is amazing! It was like listening to a movie while the images were playing in my head. The guy is THAT good.
Not your average Joe.
I hesitated on reading this book, but I am so glad I changed my mind. It was an amazing read! Was totally depressed when it ended....can't wait to read more from this author. It'd be great to see if the story continues down the road.
Real life mom. There are so many books about mothers that are out of touch, but this one is brilliant, funny with just the right amount of mystery!
I can't pick just one, but maybe if I had to it would be the "fight" scene that lands the main character in jail.
I thought that the accent would bug me, but it didn't. Quite the opposite actually. It actually made the character so much more endearing.
This book really made me laugh, I could see so much of myself in her.
Great book, easy listen and fun!
Yes, but I would caution that it might drag in certain parts. It was frustrating as a listener to know what had happened and still waiting three hours for the main character to catch on.
I'm not sure. It sort of reminded me a bit of the V.C. Andrews books I read as a child.
Yes, I suppose. There were a few times when her voice grated. Mainly during parts where the character was becoming emotional.
When Celia finally told Riley the truth about everything, that was an honest moment and rewarding as a listener. I knew what the truth was about five hours prior.
Good book, but for me a bit predictable. Still the characters were complex and very interesting.
I loved hearing all the characters speak and found them all very entertaining. I was surprised, as reviews on this book had been mixed, which is why I put off buying it. However, I really loved it.
This book reminds me a bit of the True Blood show, not so much the books she wrote. The characters are all sorts of twisted, but still somehow likable.
I enjoyed the scene in the pawn shop where two of the characters get creative in resolving a problem for Bobo.
Fiji hands down! She such a riot and a witch, what's not to like?
Honestly I really loved this book and was sad when it ended. I have to say I enjoyed it far more than I thought I would. It is more comparable to the True Blood TV show, rather than the books it's based on....so, if you like the show, you might like this story.
I loved the conversations and quick wit the characters shared. Everything was pretty fast paced, but still enjoyable.
I liked Dotty, because she was kind of the third wheel in the story. She had a lot of the funnier lines too.
I love her sarcastic tone! There are so many lines that might have fallen flat had I just read the book.
A Deadly Fixer Upper.
Loved this book! Downloaded the free preview and liked it enough to buy the whole book. Super fun, suspenseful and totally worth a credit.
I'm not sure I'd buy a book from Brown, but I might from the narrators.
The use of technology in the story was good, however everything else was lacking.
Engaging, emotional, entertaining.
No. I'm really sadden by this story. It was suggested to me because I liked Gone Girl, however this is nothing like it. I found it very hard to connect with the characters, and I have never known a young teenage girl to speak in such a tone as the one in this story.
Could have been a good story, however it was weighed down by too much psycho babble. Characters are not very likable and very hard to root for.
I have loved this series for years, but I have to admit that Stephanie and her constant yo-yo-ing between Morelli and Ranger is getting old. I loved Stephanie's relationship with her friends and family, but Morelli is really starting to bug me. I would really like to see a total shift in the story and see Stephanie officially involved with Ranger. The series needs some spice and to shake it up!
I'm disappointed in the relationship between Morelli and Stephanie. I feel like it's just in a holding pattern and Morelli's personality has been bugging me. Again, I'd love to see Stephanie with Ranger for a while and develop that relationship.
She's great, but she can only work with what she is given.
If Evanovich is going to carry on the way she is, then no. However, if she is willing to change things up and put Stephanie with Ranger, then yes.
I've loved this series, but it either needs to end,or Evanovich needs to shift gears when it comes to Stephanie's love life. I've had enough of Morelli to last a lifetime.
