It was hard getting passed the narration. Kinda wish the producers would have double checked how to pronounce names. The most crazy was "Sleeping Beauty" whose name is Aurora. Au·ro·ra [uh-rawr-uh or uh-rohr-uh].
Great story! Not my usual genre so I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed this book! The story moves quickly keeping the reader at the edge of their seat. I think I will pass the book along to my teenage daughter sort of a cautionary tale? Really liked the feel of Philadelphia and the odd-historic elements. Highly recommend this book looking forward to reading more from this author.
Have to listen again! Way too much to take in for one read through! Worth the wait BUT when is the next?!!!!
Fun twists and turns. The butlers provided some funny comic relief and Noah was a little charmer. Wedding Night is one of those books that I can listen to again and again.
Love the Chicagoland series especially since the story is getting more in depth with richer character development. Like, other reviewers I am still not sold on the narrator. I want to like her but I believe the first narrator had a better sense of how to represent each character.
Love the new direction the MB is heading. I cannot wait for book 12! This is insane because usually by book 10 a series tends to go stale but Edge of Dawn has the maturity of a book 3 when a series really hits it stride but with the freshness of cracking open Book 1. Thank you Laura Adrian for finding the sweet-spot!
I loved the Highlander series and how it transitioned into the Fever books so I was very happy to read/listen to where KMM would take me next. As in the Fever books I love the addition of Phil Gigante but I was disappointed to see that Natalie Ross was the reader for the female characters again. I do not care for her interpretation of the characters and her accents are a slip, skip and miss most of the time. I usually listen to KMM books over and over because they are well written and when I am going about my day-to-day time seems to fly, unfortunately I do not believe I could block out what frustrates me about NR to fully enjoy a re-read.
Absolutely fantastic book! Terrific writing and a true departure. I was hesitant at first to pick up this book because I wanted more Potter books but I am so very glad I gave The Casual Vacancy a chance. It's a slow and steady burn that before you realize you are totally sucked into the lives of the characters.
I hesitate to say more because I do not want to give anything away, but I will say The Casual Vacancy is a thought provoking journey through society and translates weather you live in Pagford, UK Smalltown, USA or wherever you live, it speaks to parts of ourselves we like and hold a mirror up to the parts we wish we didn't see.
I had heard the VD book series was much better than the television show and those folks were right . If you are into the whole Twilight-thing you will like this book but be sure to have book 2 in your queue.
As for me, I will not need to go any further with the audible version...maybe in the summer I will borrow the books from the library.
Absolutely wonderful story! Over way too soon. Amanda Ronconi definitely has an understanding and feel for Molly Harper's writing style.
