These books are really fun. After reading all of Charlaine Harris's Sookie books and then all of the Harris's Harper Connelly books, I figured that the Aurora Teagarden series would naturally be next on the list. At first I really thought they were a bit cheesey, but Aurora started to grow on me. While it doesn't have any of the supernatural aspects of the other series and would be more of a PG rating, instead of the maybe PG-13 or R rating of the other series. This is a fun, quirky, easy read. The narrator is great & the character is lovable. After a slow start with the 1st book not knowing what to expect, I began to love the characters that were introduced and re introduced throughout the series, so by the time I got to the 8th book (within a weeks time) I want more Aurora...........especially how this book ended. Knowing there are no more books after finishing the last book in a series.....just sucks.
Up near the top of my favorite book series.
SPOILER ALERT, SPOILER ALERT..... For me the most memorable moments were when Diana read the letter Philippe wrote to her before he died. And of course when Jack appeared. Both brought tears to my eyes.
Only the books in this series.
ANOTHER SPOILER ALERT!.......I adored this series. My only problem with this trilogy is that it only a trilogy. She left so much open for another book or even short stories. I want to know more about the children, I want to know what they do about Gerbert of Aurillac and Domenico. I wonder about Gallowglass and if he will find love. I would of like to see him with the other half witch half vampire Janet from the congregation. What happens with Jack? And of course Phoebe becoming a vampire and her life with Marcus. I can go on and on. But I will listen to this book again along with the others.
Yes, I really enjoy the Cat and Bones books. This is one series I re-listen to every now and then. But I have to say this one was my favorite by far.
I don't want to add any spoilers. But there were a few really good parts.
I always wonder what this series would be like with another narrator. Tavia Gilbert tends to be over the top at times. But I like her speaking as Bones.
I wish there was more Vlad in the book and a little Justine.
The Zombie apocalypse isn't supposed be this convenient. The hospitals aren't going to be empty, easy to walk in places where you find everything you’re looking for including Katniss Everdeen, or the female version of the Arrow, and no walking dead. The CDC will not contain one living man who rolls out the red carpet for you. As well as no walking dead. The police stations will not be empty except for a man who happens to studies Epidemiology, as well as mechanical engineering and all the guns and ammo you want. Also said man won’t have all the CDC information at his beck and call. You don’t happen to find your lost love who happens to be kick ass. And for gods sake puppies? Puppies during a Zombie apocalypse ? You may find this book cute. But books about the Zombie apocalypse aren’t supposed to be cute and convenient. And the for the lead character to be named Flex? That should of have of have clued me in. You name your kid Flex, you’re either setting his path in life to be a porn star or pro wrestler, or the lead character in a zombie infestation.
I'm going to listen to Day by Day Armageddon again. That's a zombie book.
Neither liked or disliked this narrator. Even the best performer couldn't make this book better.
I did like the zombie hypnosis idea. That was different.
I love zombie books. They aren't supposed to be neat little stories wrapped up in bows at the end. If you are new to the zombie genre I recommend reading (listening) Apocalypse Z: The Beginning of the End by Manel Loureiro. Day by Day Armageddon by JL Bourne. FEED by Mira Grant, Zombie Fallot Mark Tufo, Among the Living by Timothy W. Long. Rhiannon Frater’s As the World Dies trilogy.
The story. Maybe Ms.Harris could of put forth a little more effort into the plot.
How could it? It's the last book of the series, which I adored for the most part.
Sookie of course. I always loved Pam.
Yes. It wasn't horrific.
I believe we, the fans who have come to love and cherish these books deserve more of a story. This book seemed like Harris just threw some ideas out there and settled. No great creativity seemed to go into it. I get it after 13 books Sookie's "been there and done that", and no new characters could really be introduced. But the characters she chosen to bring back were well, dumb, .Amelia was written out of the book as far as I'm concerned, as was her father, Bob, and the others I won't mention due to spoiling the story. I wish it could of been more focused on the core characters. But it went in so many different directions that the story didn't seem to be concrete.
Probably not, well I probably will right before the next book comes out to refresh my memory. But I have read the other books a few times for the thrill of it.
I did like the part about Kitty's role as alpha being challenged. But it wasn't as exciting as I thought it may of been. The least interesting was the priest vampire. There just wasn't enough focus on any of the many things happening in this book.
Marguerite Gavin is a dream narrator. She is awesome. Between her reading the Kitty Norville books and the Rachel Morgan 'Hollows" books, she has become my favorite narrator ever. In the 100's of audio books I've listened to Marguerite Gavin, Johanna Parker and Lorelei King, Luke Daniels, Amanda Ronconi and Sean Runnette are my favorites.I have chosen books only because they were doing the reading. A great narrator can make a bad book more interesting. just like a bad narrator can ruin even the best books. But match up an awesome book with a fabulous narrator and it's an audio book listeners dream.
Yes, but for the wrong reasons. Usually if I listen to a book non-stop it's because it's so intriguing that you just don't want to put it down. This time I just kept waiting for something to happen and basically I wanted to get it over with. There were 3 other books released that week that I was excited about, that just wanted to get to one of those. Kitty Rocks the House was the one I was most excited about though.
I LOVE this series, it's one of my favorites. But I'm sick to death of this Roman, Long Game story line, get on with it already. There's been so much build up it better be worth the wait. Kitty seemed to be in a funk the whole time, which if you read the other books you know that her humor and energy are the best parts of Kitty. It had a lot of good parts, but it seemed that so much was going on that there wasn't enough focus on any of the plot points. So I didn't hate the book, but I was truly disappointed in this installment of the series.
This entire series was a fun "listen". Elisabeth Rodgers narrated the stories wonderfully. Although predictable as alot of people commented, I think if it went in the other direction we'd be left disappointed. But how Richelle Mead got us to the conclusion was not in a simple predicable manner. I loved the imaginative spin she put on this final book. The only question I would of wanted answered is, what about Roman? Good, bad or ugly, I would of liked to have known.. I thought it would of been obvious, but then from what Carter said to Georgina at the end about Roman who knows? Other then that this final book of the series left me satisfied.
Having devoured all three of books of The Hunger Games Trilogy within days, I will say I absolutely, positivlity loved all 3. It's hard to find any series of books where the sequels are as great as the original. These books are so emotional, so easy to lose yourself in the story. The characters are so well described that you feel you know them. Catching Fire starts where The Hunger Games left off. I've been reading books my whole entire life, and never came across storys like these. I highly recommend these to anyone of all ages, men and women alike. I wish there are more books in this series. But these are books that I can read more then once.
The narrator is smooth, and perfect as she reads as Katness.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I choose this book. By the time I was half way though the first chapter I was delighted. This is a pleasurable story read by a wonderful narrator. We should all take a lesson from Lacey and not be afarid to take chances to be happy. Watching her hit rock bottom just to learn that she was never happy in the first place.
I love these books, I think their are a blast to read. I love the character Jane, she's a fun & clever girl, with a never ending talent for snark and sarcasim. This is a light take on the paranormal. Very similiar to the Sookie Stackhouse books, but with a PG rating. I laughed out loud many times. each of these books were better then the last. I think the narrator captured Janes personality perfectly. I love Jane and her friends, their fun and unforgetable. Book 4 will be out in 2012, I can't wait.
