After reading the first book "The Upper Room" I was very excited when this book came out!!
I was even excited that the same reader Kevin Free was narrator.
While the Upper room was over the top with the story...it included humor and suspense. This book was to tell the story of Ruby from a child to young womanhood. It was way to much sex and violence. Yes, the first book had the same but, the story was better told. This one seemed thrown together and offered no sympathy for the characters.
The reader did the best he could with what he had...
My Book Club read this Wonderful book! we all loved it. My sister in law had saw the interview of King Peggy on 60 minutes and recommended to the group
The narrator was very good
wonderful story of how King Peggy took on her People through strength, love, perseverance, and lots of Prayer!
I love the books better than the Cable show...the stories really make you care & understand the characters!! Though I do believe the Actors picked are sot on!
All Fairies aren't Good Fairies!
Johanna Parker brings the characters to life! Perfect for the folk of BonTemps
I have read or listened to ALL of EJD'S BOOKS!! Iv'e enjoyed them all..I have noticed that Sex is very prominate and descriptive in his works for the past few years! I ain't complaining you just need not listen aloud in your car! I have forgotten myself & rolled down my window & a few HOT description of sexy narration escaped for all to hear!
That said, sometimes sex does overtake the story line. In this story I didn't particularly care for the characters ( too superficial Hollywood types) but the Sex scenes were Hot!!
Can't wait til the next book, different characters I hope...I'll have my glass of wine ready!!
I LOVE THE CHRISTIAN AND ASIAN CULTURE THEME IN THE BOOK.
I ENJOYED THE NARRATION,, IT WAS MY FIRST TIME HEARING HER
I WILL LISTEN OTHER BOOKS BY THE AUTHOR
I always love the easy flow of this series. The people and story line are like old friends that you care for. The mystery is never so far off base that is unbelievable, but everyday troubles and solutions.
i loved the scenes when Grace as usual is Miss Busy- Body- Know-It-All and states her unsolicited opinions
I love the story and really love the narrator Lisette Lescat.
I would love to see the series back on HBO..LOVED JILL SCOTT IN THE PRECIOUS ROLE
I always love the characters..I just want them to progress faster. Make the story a touch darker. Don't want the stories to be the 'same ol same ol" (though comforting,,,need more)
King is one of my fav narrators...
Need More, which is probably why the book was so short.
This wasn't EXPLOSIVE...
King's Best Book
I enjoyed the main character...the everyday man
Love the narration..kept me drawn in
I was moved often by the things you could change in history and how the results are not what you always think
VERY GOOD JOB...Just a little long on the romance part...I GET IT THEY LOVED EACH OTHER! Could have shortened thatt section a bit,
i don't need to listen again...Kellerman always gets it right the first time.
I enjoy the friendship and development of trust between Milo and Alex
Rubenstein hits every character just right...I can't think of anyone who could do a better job.
I was moved when Milo was rescued by alex and couldn't quite face his friend to thank him or admit how vulnerable he was to dying. He was no longer the "protector".
keep the series coming
I love love the plot and character development in each book of the series..the narration by Lorelei King (also of Janet Evanovich' Stephanie Plum series) is spot on!!
I enjoy the conflict of the supernatural and loves between the characters
Loreli King gives great body and depth to her characters so you always kno whose speaking. Her narration is correct to all of her characters.
I could listen to this book in one seating,,,but, i don;t like it end...so I don't
The plot and story line flowed very well.
Since I knew the main character wasn't the murderer...I was curious to find out from the vast characters who was..It's always curious to find out how many people really don't care for you and may want...you dead!
I enjoyed the main character...The harried chef and talk show host was fun
I enjoy cooking novels and learning tips
good job by Roker as writer and narrarator
