I started listening to these books after watching the HBO Trueblood series and I can not get enough. Within a week, I have listen to all of them but book number 4 and I am having a hard time finding it. I think Club Dead makes you yearn for more. It was a very good listen and I could not put my IPOD down!
This book is brilliant. Told through the eyes of a beloved dog. It is a must read/listen for any collector of stories. I am not a race fan and there is quit a bit mentioned in the book but the story is simply about the love of a dog, through a dog's eyes, for his master. There were some parts that were very emotional. Loved it.
I read these some 20 years ago. I decided I would refresh and start from the begining. Honestly...I don't know how I got so interested in the first place. Some parts were so dull I did not even care if I skipped a couple of chapters. Funny thing about reading Stephen King. He always adds so much detail that it bores you to death! But without that detail...you would not understand the story so you suffer through the dry parts. I love his writing and always have but it can be really painful in some of his books. By the time you get to the end of this one however, you will want to read the next one. One word to describe it...interesting.
The first time I read this book, I was enchanted. I loved the story. After 5 years, I decided to download it and listen to it again. I am still just as enchanted by the story line. This book is a journey for the characters in the pages as well as yourself. What I liked about this book is how they started off with a casual faith of the everyday person and evolved it to the heart felt faith of a true believer. I think that is where many of us are today. I think that is how we can relate to the characters and why they are so likeable. You find yourself worrying about them and carrying about them. You want to know what the next step is. When you become that involved in a book and the characters...it's a good one.
When I first started this book, I was not really sure about what I was getting myself into. I believe everyone is looking to eternity and I don't care for scare tactics. With that being said, I listened with an open mind. I thought the story was pretty good. Not over dramatic like a "Left Behind" series. My only problem is I felt some of the things mentioned could have been easily sculpted to fit. Sometimes it was difficult to make the same connection the author was making. If you enjoy this sort of ancient mystery that speaks a lot about Christian beliefs and values , not a bad read. If you are already a skeptic...this is not the book for you.
Johanna Parker is by far one of my favorites. I enjoy her voice so much. I loved the book. If you enjoy the series, you will enjoy this one.
As much as I love Holter Graham and sherrilyn Kenyon, I was not satisfied with the ending of this book. I felt like there was so much explaining about the Gods and different levels, I had to rewind just so I can absorb some of it. I did enjoy the story. I would read more in this series. This however was not one of my favorites. After I finished...I reread Acheron.
As always you have some virgin woman who has been looking for the right lover type of main character. I really enjoyed it. If you enjoyed the other books by Jeaniene Frost, you will enjoy this one. It helps you understand one of the characters that had always been so mysterious in the other books. (Dracula). Ha!! It was a welcome but very short appearance of Bones and Kitten.
I listened to this book at least five times. I still laugh at different parts. This was very witty and entertaining. If you are a parent, you will know exactly what they mean in the title. Well done. Well done indeed.
I could not stop with this book. Well written and the author has no problem killing off main characters. The shocker at the end just makes you want to get right to the next book. Really enjoyed the time listening.
This is by far, the best book in the series. So many questions answered and the characters really come to life. I enjoyed it a great deal.
