Funny and entertaining with a touch of supernatural. Reminds me more of the books she writes in her Barbara Michaels personna.
I’ve read quite a few MacAlister books over the years and this is the first one I’ve read that I didn’t find even a little bit funny. It also contains absolutely no plot, it had huge awkward gaps and the only way McAllister seem to try to fix this was with adding an additional sex scene. I don’t mind sex scenes in books but I don’t want the whole book to be boring sex scenes, emphasis on boring. This book was so bad I almost didn’t finish it; I had to come back like, 12 times to get through it.
Felicity performance wasn’t the best I’ve ever heard from her but considering the material she was working with I really can’t blame her.
Either I am less perceptive than other reviewers or the audio problem previously mentioned has been fixed as I didn't notice any issues at all with audio quality. Great story. I started with Snuff and am now picking up earlier stories of the Night Watch. Just sorry Audible doesn't have Guards! Guards!, which I understand is the first story featuring Sam Vimes and company. I will be listening to this several times.
After listening straight thru the first time, it's the kind of story that you can listen to again and still enjoy Pratchett's wacky satire and characterizations. In fact, it's the kind of story that you can listen to (the second or third time) piecemeal as each isolated bit is highly entertaining. In fact, sometimes I enjoy the bits more the second time around, as the first time, the desire to follow storyline distracts me from the wonderful wordsmithing. So it's ideal to listen to intermittently as you are doing other things around the house, exercising, in the car, or only have a short time to fill. Definitely worth the credit spent.
Kept my interest from start to finish. My only decision now is which of his books to listen to next.
