The actual story is great! I love all the Morganville books!
No way. She makes listening to the book absolutely painful. She slaughtered Myrnins prior interesting and playful voice. Actually every character she portrays is made to seem boring and somewhat annoying. I said I would try her one more time after the last book. Never again!
Thank you Lisa for gifting this book to me! The story takes place in an extraordinarily imaginative world. A wonderful book for all kids and kids at heart!
Oh how I wanted to love this book! I was in search of a series such as this with many books to savor, when I came upon this series by Cat Adams. I fell in love with the cover and was hoping that the inside was as great as the outside! Unfortunately I was extremely bored through most of it. Many times I kept having to rewind and listen again as my mind would wander. The most frustrating part is that the storyline has amazing potential! Possibly most of my problem with this book was the reader. I love her voice and I do believe that it matches the character perfectly....however she used NO INFLECTION! In many parts where there should have been a great deal of excitement in her voice ...it never failed to remain the same. Very mundane! If I was the author of this book I would have told her..."come on girl! Wake up and get excited about my book!"
I kept up hope until the very last page. Who knows...maybe one day I'll decide to give the second book a chance. Hopefully the reader will come to life in future books!
Thanks for reading my opinion!
First of all Iet me say that I am NOT a fan of zombie books! I'm a die hard vamp girl and a fan of other paranormal species...but not zombies. However, I kept seeing this book and it intrigued me. The cover definately got my attention :) ,and the reviews were good so I decided to give it a try. I was SO ENTERTAINED! I found myself laughing out loud many times...just as if I were listening to a Molly Harper Book! The main character is so endearing and witty! Allison McLemore did a stellar job of portraying this kick butt southern zombie girl! I'm a southern girl myself so maybe I'm a little biased. I will definately be buying the next book in the series....in fact I'm listening to book no.2 while writing this review!
I am so glad I ran across this book! YesterdayI was looking for something to listen to until Twice Tempted came out today. I stumbled across this series and talked to a friend to see if she had read it yet. She had not read it, but it WAS in her wish list. SO we decided to start at the same time. I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! By the third chapter I was hooked and couldnt sleep. I finished it this morning and have already bought the second audiobook.
I was HIGHLY impressed by the narrator, Sarah Drew. She showed the type of deep connection to this book that is rare to find. She really put her all into it. She is one of those narrators that can take a good book and make it fantastic! But in this case both writer AND narrator were spot on.
Your turn Lis!
