those who might not care all that much about the specific recording's sound quality
the sound quality or lack there of in this recording made it tough to get past
the story jumped around from side plot to side plot soooooo much that it made it less enjoyable. I also wish there had been previous charcters' development again, I hadn't ever read any others in this series and really feel I missed out on understanding the subtle histories/tension/past chemistry etc with certain characters.
her performance was fine, the writing could have been better though
not sure if there was ONE specific part that stuck out in my mind
no, but her voice and the character's voice/accent seem well matched up
I loved the combination of narrator plus the writing, made for a very neat listen. I couldn't stop listening till it, I felt almost entranced. made it very easy to imagine yourself there actually 'seeing' the story as it happened. it was a tad
confusing till I got the groove since the writer was doing the 'Dean Koontz' thing and had more than one introductory storyline w/ other characters with what seems totally different stories being told, but she brings both worlds together towards the end to tie up some of the 'wha?' type moments
this book had more potential, it started out great in my mind, good characters but the story never really turned into much. The scenarios were just a teeny bit predictable in my mind, but all in all it was enjoyable for a lazy sunday afternoon read.
loved the female character and the portrayal of her life, the man was also refreshing in that he was old/wise but wasn't some bossy bully all knowing fellow (what with him being 300 years old and all) The man who read the story has a fantastic voice too, he can use different accents and not sound like an idiot
(he's like a voice actor, sounds very 'real')
very good listen. the combination and chemistry of Cat and Bones's characters were fab, I also liked the fact it had romance and action without being insanely hammy, on both accounts . Plus his sweet to her spice, wait no um her spunk to his, her being half magic to his being full vampire,the gruff and all knowing teacher to butt kicking student that takes teacher down a few notches emotionally, wait-no....
I also enjoyed how they took down a few vampire myths in the meantime though.
This story still had real life humor and the same interesting characters,(actually that was one of the things I loved most was the spunky Jane Jameson) but I wasn't quite as interested in the actual storyline as the book before. At first the characters were refreshing and different than the stereotypical depressingly two dimensional characters but this one just seemed whiny and depressingly 'bla' to me. Seemed like the author was only writing it to fulfill something like a contract agreement with the publisher.
I adored this story, although the woman that read it did not have a very good voice, maybe it they weren't charging money for the book, I wouldn't have minded her voice was well, icky.. But all in all not a bad buy, it had a kind of real world fairy tale quality about it, without being overly Disney-ish or resembling a stuffed Denver omelet by being insanely cheesy/hammy
