This was a good compilation of eroctica set in far off lands and with a fantasy basis. That is how I prefer this genre. It was steamy without being horribly base or offensive. The narration was wonderful, as well.
*SPOILERS* I love Philippa Gregory books. The audiobooks are so supurbly done, as well. This is the last in the Tudor Court Series and it was a good one. It seems like every time I finish the book before and feel badly for the previously betrayed/abused/ignored heir or heiress they show up in the next book to be the tyrant putting the royal screws to the NEXT poor heir or heiress! Elizabeth is show to be paranoid and a tyrant at Cecil's bidding, but in other books she is to be given pity by the reader. THIS is why court intrigue is fun to read about. Bastard or not, everyone is in line for the throne in some way and could be hoisted up to that place and dragged back down again. Mary and Elizabeth should have joined forces and took on the male dominated world, but instead had their own agendas including Protestants versus Catholics. Good book. Good series.
DELIGHTFUL! Written well. Researched. Narrated AMAZINGLY! This book was like spending 10 years with Charlotte Bronte as a companion and interacting with her amazing sisters, her bitter brother, her taciturn father, her bestie Ellen, her Mr. Nichols and blossoming friendship with Elizabeth Gaskell. This book was emotional, bouncing between cheerful and heartbreaking at all times. But when it came time for Charlotte to endure her brother's and sisters deaths, it was painful. This poor woman suffered as much as she won. **SPOILERS** The two best parts of this book were: 1) The Bronte sisters discussing Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" after reading it. Total literary-gasm. 2) Jane's wedding night. I blushed. No it wasn't graphic, but my inner victorian lady was quite aghast. This book takes place during the sisters publishing of their books, which is nerve-wrecking and exciting all at once. All in all, this is a very good listen. The narrator is brilliant. I am now going to down load this author's "The Memiors of Jane Austen" at once.
*MILD SPOILERS* Five Stars? Yes. This was a great book from a really good series. Sadie and Carter are so good together in their fight against Apothos. Also compared to "Percy Jackson and the Olympians", this series gives us some romance! Walt, Sadie, Zia and Carter just seem to NEVER catch a break, but it's fun getting to the end with all their teen angst. Very satisfying, really. The gods are so different from the Olympians in some ways. I like the contrast. I liked the darker nature of this series. I wish it was more than 3 books long. Great narration by two people. Honestly, the narration made this series even more delightful than I thought it could be.
*MILD SPOILERS* This is one of my fav books in the series. There was so much action, suspense, confusion and death. Lots of loss. Its was often sad. I was happy with the ending overall. They FINALLY KISS! Five books later, but it happens! You know of whom I speak! Good stuff. Narration still just ok per usual as he is good at being Percy but not versatile enough to be anyone with an accent. It would have been better if there were multiple narrators, like "The Cane Chronicles."
Did not read the print version.
I loved the famous cases and the humanity of Depue during his personal journey.
When Depue sent a new BSU agent to meet with Ted Bundy after all his other agents were denied. The new agent got through and created a realtionship with Bundy to get so much information, which helped the BSU.
No. There are some moments you need a break. You are told about horrible cases with horrible events.
It was well read and an interesting story.
Yes. Because it is a good narration and story.
The historical time period and court intrigue.
Cecil. He was amazingly devoted to the queen and coniving.
Queen Elizabeth & Lord Robert Dudley were SCANDALOUS! The queen got on my nerves at times with her "Im a simple woman who cant make decisions without a man" demeanor at times. But in the end, she did what she needed. I prefer a more ruthless Queen, but cant win them all. Great narration. Great story. So vivid. Saucey when needed for pearl clutching. Loved it!!
Yes. If you like Dante and ZOMBIES!
My favorite scene is when they "realize" the undead are coming for them in the valley.
Just to love Dante more.
This audiobook surprised me. It was not what I thought it was going to be. It explains Dante's specific treatment of "canibalism, live burnings, evisceration, crucifixion in Inferno" by his continuous run in with plague zombies and mean, horrid men of a troubled society whom perform the other awful acts. The narrator was acceptable, not spectacular. It was enjoyable and interesting in the end. For me, you can't go wrong with zombies.
Yes, if they loved ancient history like I do. This lecture series is good.
None. Only real lectures I have sat through.
The narrator tried to be funny, but wasn't.
No. It was fun to listen per each lecture with a break in between to digest the info.
A really good series. Check it out.
So very emotional.
Reliving the experiences of the HP Phenomenon and learning stuff I did not know to complete the journey.
The experience of preparing for the last book and an end of an era.
This book is great for those of us whom love HP and are geeks about it.
I loved the idea of a
Eddy Russett's realization of their perfect society's lies towards the end.
John Lee is an AMAZING orator and I will listen to most books if he is the narrator.
I certainly laughed a lot and was outraged at the caste discrimination of the chormatically lacking of this society.
This book was a complete surprise for me. I have listened to another book by Fforde and liked it, but THIS is the series I am interested in the most.
