An elderly scary female detective as oppose to one who might be side tracked by a bit o' muslin' on the side? Count me in! Sorry Nancy Drew, I stopped reading about you once it started to center round her relationships. I read Mysteries for MYSTERIES.
Also, Mrs. Bradley is scarily awesome, or was it awesomely scary?
Mrs. Bradley! The others are mere side dishes. Also, I may like the forgetful and sporting pastor.
I bought this book because it was Patience Tomlinson.
Beware of old ladies with teeth.
I like mysteries well enough, but I think I'd only purchase more if they are on sale.
Yes, I've listened to it many times
The moment when Mr. Darcy first danced with Elizabeth
Mrs. Bennet. Funny!
Ah, when Elizabeth realizes she loves Darcy
I would love to listen to other dramatized version of Jane Austen's books.
Also, sorry Kiera Knightly
I've listened to it more than 5 times now.
It was funny without being overdone, and oh the misunderstandings and the minor intrigue and Lady Whatshername being all snobbish and "After serious consideration, I have resolved to ignore my nephew's misconduct' indeed!
Act 1! The whole of Act 1!
Ah no, there are MORE? I MUST HAVE IT!
Yeah, only 2 hours, I have listened to it sitting, standing and driving.
IF THERE ARE MORE I WANT THEM!! GIMME!
TOP NOTCH! For casual no heavy thinking full of explosions listen. It was better than watching Mission Impossible. There are werewolves and concerned citizens turned werewolf hunters! Full of Awesome!
Ah, the part when Earl realizes he may have found True Love!
I love everyone of them! Earl especially, though a special mention of the Lady in Charge of the School Gym is very satisfactory as well. Part of the reason why I read MHI was Wyman's voice.
I did listened to it in one sitting.Until 4 am...
I had a headache, but it was well worth it. A few days later I listened to it again, at a more reasonable pace. Starting from book 1. Yeah.
The descriptions were vivid and emotions are strong in the characters. They were flawed and well written.
However, I simply could not relate to Stephen. I was born sickly and developed determination as part of a coping mechanism and detest people who are physically strong but appeared weak willed.
So the part I like least is Stephen, but everything else was great. Which, seeing as s/he is the main character, made my position a little odd.
If there's a sequel I don't want to know about it.
Descriptions. The author's voice was a little too fast, but it was manageable with the audible software.
Uh, no. It actually depresses me. Success and money does not make a person happy.
I don't have anything against Stephen in terms of sexual preferences or social standing. I just wish she would grow some self esteem. Self-sacrificial tendencies are so not attractive.
Uber Awesome Explosions!
Owen Z Pitt, cause while he's a kickass monster hunter, he's still has that accounting skills he could fall back to later in life. I like practical people like that. I love how practical he is.
Undoubtedly the time travel scene.
LAughS! I really did not expect that. I bought the book because it was on sale. Never regret a moment!
As a rule, I don't read books with vampires in them until I had read Dracula (which I haven't yet) out of some book snob reason. I figure if the vampires are being shot/hacked to pieces, it didn't count. Yeah.
Also, I like how the characters approached problems with extreme prejudice and prefer to pile odds onto their favour rather than leaving things to chance and waiting for a 'Saviour' to save them. Caugh*HarryPotter*Caugh
If Z had been a character in the Potter world, well he would have given D the finger and bye, bye V-mot
Extreme Prejudice is sometimes a good thing.
Some of them, but not all. I was quite familiar with sleuthing books from Hardy Boys and the 3 Investigators. At the very least, I was able to guess who the villian was 50% of the time before Sherlock Holmes revealed it.
I'm quite happy to be more intelligent than Lestrade and Co.
Sherlock Holmes' voice! I love his dry tones. The female voices were a bit odd though.
Ah, I think that title is acceptable and I have no complaints.
I definitely look forward to Volume 2
Yes, if it's read by Patience Tomlinson. I've tried other readers, but none seemed better than her voice. Her vocal variety is incredible.
I've heard the Perfect Poison, also read by Tomlinson. Love how she did Caleb's manly voice and Lucinda's arched, almost maidenly voice. Very in character methinks.
Patience Tomlinson gave the characters more colour, I suppose. I've always have a very active imagination, but it was quite relaxing to give that a rest and listen instead.
No romance novel really 'move' me nowadays, I'm sorry to say. Possibly the product of reading too many of them in my teen years.
Yes, I'm afraid I would never purchase an Amanda Quick audio book unless it's by Patience Tomlinson.
