ROLLER COASTER EMOTIONAL RIDE
The most interesting aspect of the story Double Occupancy, was how very real the characters were and how much two people could truly bring happiness to one another in such an unexpected roundabout way. How they met, how they merged into trusting one another, Casey's panic attacks that happened every single time a man tries to get close (which has happened to most women, when they have been burned by men they once trusted). Casey accomplished more in her career than a handful of men and women thrown together in a lifetime, however, in her personal life, she was a total wreck.
Her insecurities about being too tall and clumsey, and her continued insecurities about being to old (when she is still very young!), her feelings of inadequacies as a daughter (whose father only wanted a son), and as an inadequate lover (told to her by her first encounters) made this book one emotional ride filled with mind boggling frustration for this couple.
Double Occupancy was very well written, but even more well executed in the narration performed by female lead narrator Destiny Landon, and male narrator Lee James. I do really desire the female and male leads to be narrated by the specific genders, in particularly in romance novels. It always sounds goofy to me, to hear a male floating into a soprano voice in a futile attempt to mimic a female, and even more unnerving to hear the female drop a few octaves to imitate the males part.
The build up of this relationship was very real, very hot and my *** ONLY COMPLAINT *** would be that poor Casey was constantly sabotaging her relationship with Travis by second guessing every single feeling, action, and she even found something negative in silence. It was driving me mad to have her be so insecure, but as far as an audio book goes, the narrators did an excellent job at dragging the listeners into Casey's exasperating struggle with mostly herself. It was beautifully performed, although frustrating to listen to Casey's constant self doubt when freedom and love were at her fingertips.
the narrators Destiny Landon and Lee James brought this book to it's highest potential.
The Nameless Detective Story was a clever and catchy story all around. Nothing earth shattering, but nonetheless an enjoyable read that clued you into the plot early on in the story. Listen to the descriptive narration at the onset and you shall figure it out. I am a old story enthusiast, where all the bad language and sloppy writing of today cannot be found in this cleaner and crisper nature. A great short story for cracking mystery sleuths.
