    Fans of Charlaine Harris’ best-selling Sookie Stackhouse novels will find much to enjoy in this companion to the immensely popular series. Included are a never-before-published novella and an exclusive interview with Alan Ball, creator of HBO’s True Blood. Sookie herself guides listeners on a tour of Bon Temps, gives them a peek at the werewolf and werepanther communities, provides a glimpse of her best friend Tara’s dress shop, and offers a look at Merlotte’s - the bar where Sookie earns her living.

    Story

    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?

    Just days before a massive exhibition opens at the popular New York Museum of Natural History, visitors are being savagely murdered in the museum's dark hallways and secret rooms. Autopsies indicate that the killer cannot be human. But the museum's directors plan to go ahead with a big bash to celebrate the new exhibition, in spite of the murders. Museum researcher Margo Green must find out who - or what - is doing the killing.

    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.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Would you try another book from E. L. James and/or Becca Battoe?

    So far, I have to say I would try another book by this author, but ONLY if it was performed by someone else.


    Would you recommend Fifty Shades of Grey to your friends? Why or why not?

    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?

    How did the narrator detract from the book? See above.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    A different performer.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't often comment on the books I listen to, but I was compelled to remark on this one.

    On a quiet day, away from the hustle of Richmond, in a small cottage on the Virginia coast, Dr. Kay Scarpetta receives a disturbing phone call from the Chesapeake police. Thirty feet deep in the murky waters of Virginia's Elizabeth River, a scuba diver's body is discovered near the Inactive Naval Shipyard.

    Peggy says: "Marcum Welby you are Fired!"
    "OMG the reader of this book is so irritating!!"
    Overall

    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.
