I was hesitant to buy this book due to the negative comments about the narrator. I am so glad I did, I loved the story and the narrator. I know people who sound just like this narrator, I grew up in a small rural Texas town and this book nailed life in a small town. It is laugh out loud funny.
I really debated whether I should purchase this book. I think I've been on disaster overload. But, I thought the book sounded interesting and the author is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist. So, I used one of my credits and I'm glad I did. This book made me mad, it made me sad, but most of all it made me think. While it is an account of what happened at Memorial Hospital during hurricane Katrina, it raises moral and ethical questions that are further reaching than that moment in time. Frankly, I had to stop listening several times. I just had to walk away.
The narrator did a great job. The Author did not try to sway your opinion, she just told the story in a straight forward manner. I will be thinking about this one for a while.
I hate to see the series end. This is the final book and while it does tie up alot of loose ends it also leaves you with unanswered questions. I would love another book when George and Jack are adults. I guess I can dream on. The writing is what we have come to expect from this writing team, very good. The narration is great. If you are not familar with this series, I would recommend starting with On The Edge.
Normaly when I see an audio book narrated by the author I view it with trepidation. Sometimes they are good, but most times not so much. However, this author brings her characters to life with her narration. Wish she would narrate books witten by other authors. This was a very good story also.
If you like your books hot, then look no further, this is a book for you. Gideon is all an alpha male should be and more. Eva is a strong, career minded woman who knows what she wants, and she wants Gideon. Both have issues they must overcome. Can two abuse survivors be in a relationship together? Hopefully we will get the answer to this question in the next book. And I can't wait.
The narrator did a great job with Eva and Gideons voices.
This book contains sexual scenes & crude language that some might find offensive. Light BDSM.
This is a book about a young woman down on her luck, with self esteem problems, and from the wrong side of the tracks. Normally, this would be depressing, but not the case with this book. Our heroine, Angel doesn't let being turned into a Zombie get her down. She is funny and snarky and she has brain power. Of course, it took some time for me to get use to the brain smoothies.(yuck)
The narrator did an excellent job with all of the characters. This narrator reads this series on par with Amanda Ronconi's reading of the Molly Harper books. However, this series is not as funny.
This book is more of a mystery, police procedual with an under current of romance. The romance is not a big part of the book. No sexually explict scenes. There are some F bombs and other curse words that some may find offensive. The book is defintely targeted at adult reader/listener's. If your in the mood for a light book, this is for you. But be warned, Zombies have some strange dietary requirements. (brains)
I was so excited when I learned this trilogy would be out in audio book. I downloaded it as soon as it was available. I thought this was really going to be a great listen. I have read all the books and really enjoyed them. I began listening right away. I could not believe what I heard. I thought surely I had downloaded a parody of the books that I enjoyed so much, so I double checked to make sure that, yes, I did indeed download the correct book.
I couldn't believe that Random House Audio used a Judy Bloom narrator to perform the Fifty Shades Trilogy. Yes Ana is young, but really, a Judy Bloom narrator? I really like Judy Bloom don't get me wrong. But I had to wonder what RHA was thinking by using this narrator.
I was agian excited when I heard that RHA was re-mastering this book. I anxiously awaited 4/17/12 and the re-mastered version. Disappointement greeted me on 4/17. I have come to the conclusion that RHA doesn't get romance. I went back through my numerous audio purchases and realized RHA was not a big star in the audio books that I enjoy,, in fact they were absent. I have not paid attention to the publisher of my audio books in the past, but going forward I will think long and hard before purchasing any audio books published by RHA. The failure of both versions of this audio book was not the narrator or author, but a publisher who doesn't get it.
This is a great start to the series. I have all the books and was glad to see this one as an audio book. Can't wait for the other titles to be added to audio.
It was ok. Based on the reviews it received, I was disappointed. It was fairly predictable. I probably won't purchase another from this author unless it is on sale.
I read the book and listened to the Audio book, both are great. Would really like a follow-up book to see how Bod is doing.
