Therese Plummer yes. Amanda Hocking most likely no.
No, she isn't a bad writer but the book is blatantly YA fiction and there is little finesses in her writing. If I am going to read YA it needs to have a well executed plot line and needs to move at a decent pace. The imagination is there but the pace isn't.
Therese Plummer did a good job. She kept me interested longer than I would have been if I was simply reading the book, but I still ended up being bored enough to stop listening.
I enjoyed the fact that the book takes place in a Magical Bed & Breakfast. The immediate charm that comes to mind when thinking about a B&B never fades throughout the book.
The tone of the book makes me think of the Elemental Assassin series. Maybe because the main character in that series is also all about taking care of her own.
Vampires, werewolves, and Bed & Breakfasts.. OH MY
Pardon the puns, I honestly couldn't help myself and it seemed to fit the tone of the book. Tone is lighter, but still takes itself seriously enough to provide a good adventure. It doesn't have a "grand epic" worked into its plotline which I think is part of the reason it is so enjoyable. It is simply a good read and something I enjoy picking up to re-read/ listen to on a rainy day!
The storyline and the performance. This is the ONLY book I prefer to listen to over reading!
The moment where Chaz realizes Joey is alive :)
I think my main thing is that this is really the first time we get Granuiel's POV. Not sure I really care for it. She's a little too much of the deep philosophical for my tastes. I think I prefer straight Atticus.
The sense of humor and the world of Steampunk Victorian England.
The imagination and care to detail.
Not had the opportunity yet.
I love the plot
the very British sense of humor
Spoiler alert******** Jenny does a good job making Old Sophie and Young Sophie's voice different, but seeming like they still belong to the same person.
ummm well Studio Ghibli already made a film so that is kinda pointless.
I love this book to pieces so am very biased. I enjoy getting into the ridiculous characters and enjoy this book in its written, audio, and film formats.
