I am a fan of Kerrelyn Sparks. This was the first of her books I read and remains one of my favorites. The female lead is a strong, take charge character. The male lead an agonized, without being annoying handsome vampire. A funny, interesting plot. The narration however was most disappointing. All accents -Scottish, Russian, Brazilian- sound the same. The heroine even when in mortal danger sounds as if she is on the brink of an orgasm or ready to sing "happy birthday Mr President" a la Marilyn Monroe. The narrator also appears to have been on a tight deadline as the narration is abnormally fast.
The slow pace, over dramatization of each and every experience, activity and action. It just drones on and on and on.
All of them.
Just give this a miss unless you need a cure to insomnia.
I am a huge fan of the In death series - I have all the audio books. However this one was so disgustingly-the-top that I skipped parts of the book. The gruesome violence as the protagonist commits the crimes and compulsive profanity by all the characters was hard to stomach. This book was not an enjoyable experience.
Eve, Peabody & Dr Mira all sound the sound alike. There is no passion in the narration.
As always the plot is superb. The narration is so disappointing. Eve, Peabody & Dr Mira all sound the sound alike. What happened?
Not listing to it.
Never in audio.
In audio format, all but the last chapter
i enjoy reading Ms Hatcher's novels but this is a novel not meant for audio. The plot and pace of novel are too slow. I fell asleep listing to it. The only way to get through it, is to skip chapters. Read it, don't listen to it.
Lack of decent plot, weak characters and dreadful narration
Most of the characters have dreadful British or wheezing, "I am at death's door" accents. The child sounds like a mouse high on crack. The narration does not brighten the mood or experience.
Half the book
This is the most disappointing and unsatisfying (and last) of all Lynsay Sand's novels I have read/heard. Her novels have progressively lost their zest. I keep buying them and hoping the original exhilaration will return but alas no, this one is the worst. The most interesting character is the dog. The intriguing, multifaceted characters of the previous novels appear as poor imitations, the main characters of this novel are dull and flat. The plot is unerring in its intention to drive the reader/listener to commit ritual suicide. The dreadful narration adds to the depression.
One of my favorite novels. A great plot with witty & funny characters. The narration does it justice, it is a pleasure to listen to.
Molly Harper just improves with every novel. I enjoyed it thoroughly. A super plot, intriguing characters, witty conversation. The best of the Nice Girls novels.
The most interesting part of the book was the bad knees of the male lead. The narration is unspeakably Awfull.
A scintillating novel, witty dialogue, funny storyline and compelling characters. This is a first rate chapter in the Nice Girl Universe. Amanda Ronconi is the perfect narrator for Molly Harper's novels. She interprets the nuances and intentions of the author superbly. The narration adds to the pleasure of this novel.
