I really enjoyed the Small Changes trilogy (Farthing, Ha*Penny and Half Crown), so I would probably try another one.
No, and it hasn't turned me off from this author - I would give Jo Walton another try.
Singsong, but a nice rendition of a Welsh accent.
The author does have an occasional nice turn of phrase. Descriptions are very well done.
This book was so dull that I only continued to listen because I can't believe anything this boring ever got published! Do take the time to enjoy Farthing, but don't waste your time/money on this dull as dishwater recounting of science fiction reviews!
This one has great characters, and a fun premise, but the author's skill is almost eclipsed by the reader's hyper-pronunciation of each word. It seems she substitutes precise enunciation for emotion or acting ability.
The story itself is a new werewolf saga with an interesting heroine, a quest for a handsome hero, amusing and talented sidekicks, and an ancient prophesy. What else could you want?
I've read Christophe Moore's other books, and laughed all the way through! I have really appreciated his off the wall sense of humor, and that you needed a little intelligence and literary background to appreciate his work. This one, however, is just boring - I kept waiting for it to get funny, and would put it on the back burner for a while before trying again. I give up - this just isn't up to his usual quality.
I was expecting quirky, English humor - but this was just deadly dull. The narrator's dead-pan, monotone recitation certainly did not enhance the book. The writing was stylistically poorly done with constant short, clipped sentences and little imagery. Depressing, dull, boring.
I love Charley! She's the most unlikely, sarcastic grim reaper imaginable - those who love Stephanie Plum and Betsey the Vampire Queen will have a new, snarky, witty heroine to add to their list!
Wow - MaryJanice lost her character development in this one - it went from Betsy being sarcastic and amusing to being sarcastic and annoying, from Betsy being a little bit of an air-head, but a lovable air-head to being a pain in the neck. I don't like Betsy anymore, and I'm disappointed that a series I was really enjoying disintegrated so quickly.
Another great Dexter book! The character in the book is so much more compelling than the TV character...and Jeff Lindsay does a great job as narrator as well as author. An entertaining, chilling listen.
This was great - off beat, black humor, very well read. I couldn't wait to finish it so I could listen to it again!
