This is a story of redemption. You work out the past with Tony/Anthony through this book. The reader does a great job! All the different voices and attitudes. If you read/listened to the shack & enjoyed it then you will also enjoy this one. The emotion is so raw that I ened up wiping tears away at times. And I don't cry a lot ever, about anything. Not as sad as the Shack because it's not about a kidnapped, never found lil girl. But just as powerful in so many ways.
I've read this and The Shack as well. I've bought extra copies just to give away. I buy audio books so my husband can enjoy the same books on trips. However, I find my self listen to books now more than music. Man I am getting old. If you read to escape you can listen to escape as well. We listen to audible books on our boat as we fish. It gives us other things to talk aboutthan our mundane ins & outs of each day. It's omething we can do together or apartand still have a common bond, topic, interest.
These books are worth your money. They may even change your life, if you let them.
I truly adore anything by Molly Harper. Seriously, what's not to love? This is another who-dun-it w/mystery, solid characters, a great story build. It'll keep you guessing. If you're into the serious mysteries than this may not be for you. This is a fun read, gal pals, wealthy friends & a past murder or was it? It's spooky but won't keep you up at night. I preordered this & will preorder anything by Molly.
Between the author & narrator you can't go wrong.
If you like the concept of The Walking Dead you'll enjoy this book. Lots of funny toilet paper references. I say TWD concept because, at least in this short story, he's the only survivor we meet, aside from Alice (ahhh Alice). So while there may be others this is not a group of people surviving together. So it's completely one sided.
Narration is perfect.
I love the Divergent trilogy and this ad on book is no different. Thankfully if you listened to the series then you'll be pleased to know they kept the same narrator-yeah! There are a few discrepancies in each story. Obviously the same author wrote this, I know. I'm just unsure why Four would've done/said a few things written. Also some time lines seem off. But I enjoyed it.
Great performance. As usual w/ Therese Plummer.
I really enjoyed this story. It's fun. The concept of who can become a vampire grates on my nerves but I won't give it away. There's some great girl power moments midway through. Funny stuff. It's worth both your money and/or credit.
Love the narrator.
Story is great!
It's a fun mystery, adventure, who dun it type, like the first book.
You'll enjoy this if you liked the first one (This Case is gonna Kill Me).
Great background into the history of the infamous Hotel Dumort. It's a cool part of history, not the made up hotel, but the era in which this takes place.
It was neat to get a look-see into Raphael's past. Knowing more helps him make better sense in the Mortal Instruments series.
I enjoy any story about Magnus Bane.
The narrator reads just fine but was a horrible Magnus Bane voice. Just sayin.
I'd like them to have stuck w/ Gareth David-Lloyd (The Course of True Love).
I read this years ago. I was excited to get it on audio. Her other books were done well but this one is just, it sounds old. She did great, as always. But the sound is just, I can't put words to it other than it sounds old.
Its a great book however, well worth your credit or cash.
Its The Mortal Instruments book, of course it's awesome!
The story is wrapped up well, some things I did not like but as a whole it was good. Not great, good. They've introduced a few characters that we will see down the road no doubt in a spin off of these books. Like how the Clockwork books were kinda of a prequel, these new characters will be the main characters of the books following Instruments.
Looking forward to it Cassandra.
