  • The Monsters of Morley Manor

    Monsters, aliens, ghosts, giant frogs, and a tragic angel are just some of the ingredients of this madcap adventure that is quite possibly Bruce Coville's strangest novel yet. Bruce himself appears on this recording as Gaspar Morley, head of a strange family of monsters that draw Anthony (our narrator) and his little sister Sarah into a galaxy - spanning adventure with the very souls of Earth's dead at stake.

    This book was just fun to listen to. It was fast moving and I totally enjoyed the different character voices, it made them more realistic that way.

    It's 1964 and 10-year-old Felix is sure of a few things: the birds and the bees are puzzling, television is magical, and this is one Christmas he'll never forget. LBJ and Lady Bird are in the White House, Meet the Beatles is on everyone's turntable, and Felix Funicello (distant cousin of the iconic Annette!) is doing his best to navigate fifth grade - easier said than done when scary movies still give you nightmares and you bear a striking resemblance to a certain adorable cartoon boy.

    This was one of those books that you know you've wasted a good credit . I couldn't get through chapter 3. By this time I didn't think it would get better. Absolutely no interest in the ramblings of a pre-teen boy's life. And the little sexual innuendo's that kept coming up. There was nothing funny about this listen at all.

    After a political scandal, fledgling lobbyist Dempsey Jo Killebrew is left almost broke, unemployed, and homeless. She reluctantly accepts to refurbish Birdsong, the old family place in Guthrie, Georgia. But, oh, is Dempsey in for a surprise. "Bird Droppings" would more aptly describe the moldering Pepto Bismol - pink dump. There's also a murderously grumpy old lady who has claimed squatter's rights and isn't moving out. Ever.

    This was a great listen. The narrator was especially talented, between the accents and voices. The characters were interesting also, but I was waiting for the epilogue, but it wasn't there. I would have liked to hear the wrap up on the other characters.

    Genevieve Buchanan inherited a castle—and a ghost to go along with it. But Kendrick de Piaget was no typical ghost. He was a handsome and infuriatingly arrogant 13th-century knight. At first, he wanted to frighten Genevieve, though she was more charmed than scared by his ghostly tricks. But when his thoughts turned to wooing her instead, Genevieve had to face her greatest fear: falling in love.

    Enjoyable book. By the time I got past the first chapter it was very hard to stop listening. A few good and unexpected twists which for myself I didn't see it coming. Which just that in itself for me makes a good listen.

    Can't wait to hear the next book of this series! She's a great writer and I liked the fact that she just briefly touched base regarding her earlier books as a small reminder of what had transpired previously without going in to a lot of detail. Again, as with the first 2 books of this series, I didn't want to stop listening.

    It’s the most wonderful time of the year…and for Heather Andrews, security manager at Timberwoods Mall, undoubtedly the busiest. But this Christmas, Heather has more to contend with than frazzled parents and disgruntled Santas. Angela Steinhart, a young woman who designed the mall’s spectacular holiday displays, has had a premonition that tragedy will strike on Christmas Eve. And Angela’s visions have a habit of coming true. Heather would love to dismiss the warning as holiday stress.

Now, in Enchantment, Card works his magic as never before, transforming the timeless story of Sleeping Beauty into an original fantasy brimming with romance and adventure.

    Since I used a credit for this book, I forced myself to listen to the whole thing. The only good thing about this "fairy tale" was the narrator and it was read very well. Other listeners compare this book with Sleeping Beauty, well, one thing for sure, this isn't a fairy tale for children with all the hate and violence.

    I enjoyed this book, it held my interest. The only thing I wasn't happy (and this is just my opinion) with was the end of the book. I feel the ending should have tied up some major loose ends with the final confrontation of two of the top main characters, instead of leaving us so to speak "left on the outside steps".

    A this sequel to The House on Tradd Street. When Melanie Middleton was seven years old, her mother, Ginnette, left home, abandoning her husband and her daughter. Now, nearly 33 years later, Ginnette has returned to Charleston, South Carolina, to confront her past and make amends with the daughter she left behind. Melanie is less than thrilled when her mother reappears in her life and asks for her help in buying back the family home.

    Kathy says: "Believable Paranormal Ghostly Story"
    "Nice listen"
    Overall

    I had previously listened to the House on Trad street and found quite good, but even though this book was good, I feel it missed the mark a bit. In her first book the main character had psychic talents that she used, but in this book her talent was sorry missing and relied way too much on her mothers talent. At the end of the book she never tied up any of the loose ends and left you just waiting for the finish. Even the first book didn't leave you hanging as bad as this one did and you knew you could listen the the sequel to see how it all ended. But this one didn't. Now, is there eventually going to be a sequel to this one?
