I just love watching this family on t.v. and now I have really enjoyed this book too. It gives a bit of background of Willie and Jace's younger years, a bit of information of the early marriage of Phil and Kay. It is entertaining and also has a few recipes included. A likable read.
Ive only heard this story in Audio and it was really good. Commodore James has a great voice for this book, although, the southern accent was not quite right, I wish that had been refined a little more for this reading.
It had me spooked, sad, and cheering. Just what I was looking for.
My first listen of his narration. I could easily choose another of his.
Tyeson. Yes, he was the villian in this book but I felt that his insanity, due to genetics and his position in the community as a family member of such a prominent family was overlooked, ignored and forgotten in his damaged mind. Allowing him to torture and abuse anyone he chose and get away with it. By humans anyway.
It stayed interesting through entire reading.
Davina, I was taken by surprise by this character and the part she played in this story.
The explosion at the Diner.
Enjoyable read that pulled me in. Good story and characters. I look forward to reading more Lucy March.
This one had a slow start for me, it begins with Sarah's diary and it is read in such a morose and raspy way that almost turned me off to the book. As I hate to waste a credit I continued and soon enough I found it drew me in unitl I had to learn if it was insanity or true monsters that plagued these people. It got better and better so glad a stuck to it.
Hmm, I cant think of another Ive read like this but it was well worth my time in the end.
Yes, she did. She did translate the sadness and soul of the characters very well. You can feel the depression.
Oh I did cry toward the end when Sarah finally learns about how her daughter died and that she and her husband's love for her is very endearing.
I found slow areas for me but they were resolved quickly enough. A good spooky book.
Well, there are a few areas that feel rushed or could have been more complete. For example, in the beginning his realization that he could see ghosts was accepted by this injured soldier so easily was a little out of character for him and although this was a bother for me it did not stop this from being a fair story and I did download the second. I just ignored this and got into the rest of the story. Not Bad.
His first physical contact with the "mother ghost" . There is physical pain involved to his touching ghosts and this was a cool concept.
His bus rides and how his pride is hurt and I felt sympathy and his injuries.
A soldiers job is never done.
If you have been reading and are a fan of this series, you will know Loretta, Allison's mother. She is also a medium or seer of ghosts and she has the most adorable personality and I was very happy to read this addition in her voice and point of view. Endearing.
The best was that Loretta was the main character...and she is a "character" for sure. Fun addition to the series.
The floating Roasted Chicken was really cute.
Oh yes, as Ive been leading to in previous comments...this is one of my favorite series and this book is a cherry on top.
If you enjoy Molly Harper, Lucy March and that type of humor, strength in female characters and a "real feel" to relationships of all types then I have no doubt you will enjoy E. J. Copperman as well as I do.
I would definitely recommend this one. Its a classic set up for a nightmare, slasher type story. A group of young adults trekking off into the woods where you would expect them to meet with psychopath in the deep woods...and they do, just not The Crazy you may be expecting.
Danni, She is smart and strong.... making for a pretty good heroine.
His "psycho voice" is really creepy. I loved those parts.
The graphic kills could be intense.
Yes, I do plan to revisit this book and the whole series in the future. It had all the elements I enjoy for a well written and narrated listen.
I liked how the resident ghosts were introduced to the story line.
No true favorites, Amanda Ronconi is one of my favorite narrators and she brings a great flavor to each character she reads. She can bring a strength to most lead characters that is not always found in audio.
Yes, and actually did go through this whole series very quickly. I am hoping more in this series comes soon, Ill be first in line to pick them up.
I have not read the printed version but this audio was entertaining enough for me to download and listen to all 7 books available at this time.
Sam, the guard gargoyle. and Merlin...who doesnt enjoy Merlin"s wisdom and mystery. I have to say that all the characters were well written and given interesting personalities that I enjoyed.
Her voice sounded the right age, and she did well enough in making a difference in each character that was easy to enough to follow. I have heard better but I would have no problem choosing another reading she may do.
Moved? Hmm, Im not sure this was that kind of book. There is humor, mystery, and challenges to met and danger to face. But I dont think I was overly emotional. A good balance.
I would recommend this to anyone who would enjoy a fun and quirky read. Im usually not a reader of the books about magic but this one did keep me going through all the books. Will it be the best book Ive read by the end of the year? Maybe not, but I did enjoy it.
That Georgina is actually a character that you could be friends with, I did not expect her to be so likable considering that she is succubus.
Its entertaining and she does not come across as evil.
She made the characters sound great, even the men. I would listen to her again.
Not overly reactive, only pleasantly surprised that she is so down to earth.
Im glad there were so many reviews to help me decide to read this one, I may not have chosen it otherwise. It was not sexually offensive as one may expect with such a subject matter. Its a good read with characters that you can enjoy.
I wish Stony could have had a love affair and a deeper connection with someone besides his family which was a wonderful connection. Once the Stony was away from his family the story became quite slow for me and lost a bit of my attention in the middle.
Sure, it was a pleasant read, I did enjoy it and I liked Stony, it just was not my favorite book of all time.
On the mark.
Possibly, Im not sure I would be in the audience but Im sure others would like it very much.
This is not a bad story, I enjoyed many aspects of it and glad I did read it, it just has highs and lows that kept this from being an excellent five star story for this reader.
