I listened to all four of Tana French's books. I loved that each successive book was about a character that was introduced in the previous book. If you are looking for a good, involved story that keeps you guessing and "then having that how did I not see that coming" moment, then you will love reading these books. Tana French is a craftsman at telling one story and once the book is finished realizing that there was so much more going on under the surface. The Narrator was excellent, especially considering the accent. I had no trouble telling the individual characters apart. It was a pleasure listening to this book.
I waited a really long time before downloading this book. I always hate when a really good series is coming to an end and I think I was in denial. When I could finally wait no longer I savoured it like the best dessert at the end of a wonderful meal served in the company of really good friends. And Marguerite Gavin is the chocolate fudge and whipped topping on that dessert.
This is one of my all time favorites and will listen to it time and again.
Blood Trade was a great addition to this series. I really enjoy serial books and this is one of my favorites. Faith Hunter continues to find new and humorous employment for Jane. I love the humor and often find myself laughing out loud.
Khristine Hvam as the narrator is awesome. She has the two things I look for in a narrator - the ability to differentiate the characters and the ability to express the action.
If you like a fun series - this is a good one.
As the sixth book in this series I was looking forward to seeing what kind of trouble Toby would find herself. And I was not disappointed. I thoroughly enjoy this series and can't wait to see what happens next.
The narrator Mary Robinette Kowal is wonderful and I enjoy listening to her. I have no problem distinguishing characters (although the one southern/texas accent threw me for a while). And as a narrator really conveys the action.
I would really recommend this entire series.
Although this is a short listen - it was good. I enjoyed the story and really liked the characters. The narrator was easy to listen to and did an excellent job portraying the different characters.
If you need a quick 'read' I would recommend this book.
The fact that Jim Butcher can combine every concievable myth about werewolves and create a single story including them all is writing at it's finest. And James Marsters is the best way to listen to Harry Dresden.
I thoroughly enjoyed this second installment in the Dublin Murder Series. I liked the fact that the book didn't just pick up from the ending of Into the Woods. But I was already invested in the character and I liked having her story continued. I enjoyed the interaction between the characters and I love not having the answer to the mystery spoon fed to me. Tana French is a very subtle author and is masterful at character development. Heather O'Neill does a wonderful job and I had no trouble distinguishing characters, both female and male.
Of the four books in this series - this was probably my least favorite. Maybe because it was the third book in the series, maybe because the characters were less endearing . Not sure - but this one took me longer to get through than any of the others. The Narrator did a great job.
I read this book on the recommendation of my daughter. I found it facinating. Tana French's character development is amazing. She delves into her main character with a subtle and yet relentless pen. By the end of the story you not only know the main character, but understand them in a way that you would a best friend. The narrator Steven Crossley was fabulous.
