    Would you listen to Turn Back Time again? Why?

    I would listen to it again, but there are better authors out there. Good description of character. Good character development, but not as deep as I would have liked. You do get to know the characters. The characters are familiar. one doesn't know she's gay. One does. They fall in love after a bit of yearning and longing. ....... and the beat goes on.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Turn Back Time?

    I did like the love scenes. Don't get to hear too many love scenes in books between women.


    What about Nicole Vilencia’s performance did you like?

    I like her performance. I wasn't put to sleep and I was able to enjoy the book with her interpretation of the characters as she read.


    Who was the most memorable character of Turn Back Time and why?

    My favorite part is during the first love scene where she begins to realize what she is and feels happy. Not a lot of conflict which isn't always the case with someone coming out to themselves.

    Melanie Hoffert longs for her rural North Dakota home with its grain trucks and empty main streets. But like many, she followed the out-migration pattern to a more urban life. When she returns home during harvest to confront the silences that have kept her at arm’s length from her childhood community, she finds it’s not easy. When asked if she's found a “fella,” rather than explain that she dates women, she stops breathing and changes the subject.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I think I would add more action. It is a narration. A drawing of words. A still piece, but pretty. Personally though, I would have like to see more Vincent Van Gogh in this bit of writing.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I really didn't like this book. It moved too slow. Too much narration


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I am not sure if there was a lot you could do with this book, but the narrator put me to sleep. I got through 3/4 of the book and then laid it to rest.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    If I need a sleeping pill, go see the movie.It would be healthier than the sleeping pill.


    Any additional comments?

    I like narrations that paint pictures of small towns, small settings, but as much as I tried to see the beautiful scenery, it just was too boring for me. I couldn't finish it as a result.

    The tension and love between the two women.


    Have you listened to any of Bernadette Dunne’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    fist read, but enjoyable

    Yes, though it was very predictable and an easy read.

    Easy read, predictable from the very beginning, but still really good.

    What made the experience of listening to Trick of the Dark the most enjoyable?

    I love the descriptions and the exploration of the characters. I love the way, I felt like I really knew and understood the characters from the main character's perspective. The settings and all events equally were visually written well which made this book so interesting, not to mention the plot and main events in the story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character was a lesbian, but that was not what the story was about. It was a murder mystery, much like Tony novels


    What about Gerri Halligan???s performance did you like?

    She is an excellent reader that allows you to feel the emotions of the characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but alas, couldn't due to my responsibilities. Had I been retired, I would have listened to the end or till I finally fell asleep which was hard considering the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked that the main character was a "normal" lesbian character, not your normally stereotyped, defamed ones. This story is one that main stream, non homophobic readers would really enjoy.

Wistfully trading her starched white cap and dress for a bright yellow poplin frock with a flared skirt, young Cherry takes to the highway, never imagining the gay adventures that await her. Imagine her surprise to learn that Aunt Gertrude has been kidnapped! Armed only with the contents of her purse, and with the help of new chums, Cherry must save her aunt.

    What did you love best about The Case of the Not-So-Nice Nurse?

    Very funny, very campy. Very unseriously. Nancy is a very nice nurse.
    We should be so lucky to have one as competent and naive as her


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Case of the Not-So-Nice Nurse?

    When Nancy so unpretentiously decides that she likes her detective idol.


    What about Emily Beresford???s performance did you like?

    Sounds just like Nancy as a character. REally funny and enjoyable


    If you could take any character from The Case of the Not-So-Nice Nurse out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Nancy and her detective girlfriend


    Any additional comments?

    I hope audible gets more of this serious and I intend to buy everyone or them. It is a very light hearted read.

    The ruins on the border of New Mexico and Mexico were once the bustling town of New Dominion. But in 1933, most of its population was massacred - and no one was ever arrested for the brutal crime. Now, the land once known as New Dominion is the site of more recent murders. Former police detective Annie O’Brien, blessed-or cursed-with a heightened sense of empathy, is conducting the investigation. Staying alone in an old house near the desolate remains of the town, she finds herself haunted by the tragedies that occurred there....

    Where does Cold Black Hearts rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    I have heard much better, but I thoroughly enjoyed it especially for the price!


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The book is pretty predictable, but again, enjoyable. I don't get offended if I can guess what is going to happen. It did have me guessing at times.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The reading was adequate, but I think has lots of potential. She didn't interfere in the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, several sitting, but I looked foward to listening to it.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the book, and would recommend it to anyone.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden has had a rough couple of weeks. As the only openly practicing professional wizard in the Chicago area, he has squared off against a multitude of supernatural bad guys. Harry has won the day against demons, poltergeists, sorcerers, trolls, vampires, werewolves, and even an evil faerie godmother. You might think nothing could spook him. You would be wrong.

    Lakejewel says: "Spike makes good"
    "Narration Monotonous"
    Overall

    Normally I can get through readings that are below average, but for my first Dresden book, I found the reading monotonous. Story seems good, but when Drsden is in pain, sick ecetera, a minimal emotional whisper gets in the way of the drama that is happening. Very disappointed. No more Dresden for me even if writing is superb. My third graders could do a better job of reading than the narrator. Better to read this book than to listen to a whispered book. When there is passion and emotion is happening, I want to hear and feel it. Not the case with this narration of the book.

    This is a book that I will be listening to many times. There are three stories going on as the granddaughter, her grandmother and her great grandmother are revealed. The main character receives an inheritance of land and a mystery from her grandmother. The 3 stories unravel and are intertwined as you learn more about the fully developed characters. Descriptions, Suspense, Outstanding ending, Oh my!
