This book is in line with Briggs, Harrison and Butcher. I liked the characters. The reader was pretty good too.
The reader is a good one but a little too old style for the role. The story was slow in the beginning but picks up in the middle. I do not like rape in stories so that took away from the enjoyment. When I out of good options I will listen to the next one.
The book was entertaining once you are able to tolerate the reader. Something about listening to a story told by a 12 year old (figuratively) was difficult. If the book was read by the twilight reader it would have been easier to listen to and more enjoyable. The characters are teenagers and the book is definitely meant for young adults. The story has some surprises and a couple twists which make it worth listening to. I might listen to the next book but will definitely see the movie when it comes out.
I could not get through this book. Jane's recount of her self in animal form and talk in the third person was painful. It might have been better if the reader down played some of the sarcasm but she accented it instead. This is probably what a reader should do. The writer and reader combination was not a good one. I would chose a different book.
Felix is witty, sarcastic with a soft streak at least sometimes. I really enjoyed the series. I hope Mike Carey writes another book. The characters are well developed and unusual. The reader is good once you get used to him. Im not a big fan of English readers so if you like them you'll love the reader.
I hate to see the series end, I loved Sookie. I give credit to Charlaine Harris for ending it when she could have made money on more books. Charlaine Harris said she has nothing left to write about Sookie. I believe her. She pulled the lose ends of Sookieville together nicely in the ending.
This book was much better than book 6. I was worried the series was going to take a dive. Patricia Briggs did a good job bringing back the action. The reader is great.
I started with book one. The series is enjoyable and entertaining. It is not on the same level as C. Harris, K. Harrison or L. Correia, but not many books are. I will continue listening and enjoying the series. The reader improved since Book 1.
SYFI is not my preferred choice but my book club chose this. This book goes along well then gets somewhat out there at the end. I liked the characters. If they rained in some of the out there stuff I would have given it a 4. I have watched, listened to and read awful SYFI that kept going and going so if you a SYFI geek you will love this one. The reader was very good.
The book was intense and a little disturbing. It was not predictable but I had a sense of the direction the book was going to take. I am a heavy supernatural fan since 2008 prior to that these types of stories dominated my reading/listening. As I was going along I realized why I am a supernatural fan. This is too close to a sad and disturbed possibility. I hope the book does not give further ideas to someone who is already walking a fine line. The readers were excellent.
I not a big fan of British Comedy but I had a few laughs. I actually laughed out loud at some stuff. I enjoyed the book. It took time for me to warm up to the reader but I got used to his voice. He did a decent job. If you rate this directly to some of the other British comedy it would get 4 stars for sure.
