I have read or listened to all of the Sookie Stackhouse books several times. I love them.
They are fun, interesting and leave you thirsting for more at the end of each read/listen. But if you are looking for a Sookie "hit" before the next book comes out or if you think you will learn something new and exciting by buying this title you will be sorely disappointed. I felt like this was such an obvious play for more money because the books/TV series have become so vastly popular that it left me angry and no wiser or more entertained than I was before I started the listen. The only thing that saves this book from a straight one star in each catagory was the presence of Johanna Parker. A serious waste of a credit. I felt cheated by an author that I had previously enjoyed very much. As an aside, I really don't care to hear about the "fan club" and their variously vapid and insipid exploits. Really?
Dust didn't like anything about this listen. Ok, the narrator(s) were ok, but the book was boring, drawn out and anticlimactic. I definitely wouldn't recommend it.
So far, I have to say I would try another book by this author, but ONLY if it was performed by someone else.
I would NOT recommend the audio version of "Fifty Shades of Grey" because the performer is SO terrible. Not only is her performance predictable and lacking in inflection, her voice is just down-right irritating.
How did the narrator detract from the book? See above.
A different performer.
I don't often comment on the books I listen to, but I was compelled to remark on this one.
The narrator of this book is just too irritating for words. I could barely get through the first half hour. I'll try it again, but I just don't know if I can tolerate the reader to get to the story.
