Very much so, listening to the book for me was much better than reading it. The narrator, really made me understand the situations and characters much better than when I read it.
When Candide realizes that the world is really made up of hypocrites, cheaters, fanatics, and insanity of religion.
When I read this book in school it just didn't get the way this audio version has. It really expresses Voltaire's views of religion, had the human condition that make religion flourish and manipulate man kind. A very simple book that show haw humanity even 250 years later has not changed much.
Very much so. I am not a big follower of the Joann Walker series, although I've listened to approximately three of the books. I have listened to all the Jane Yellowrock series and together they made a really good team in this story. I know I'll listen to again....
How the two women found each other and recognized the power that each had. How they knew how to work together so beautifully even though they had never seen or heard of each other before that day.
The scene in the beginning of the book where Jane and Jo come across a daemon, and Jane turns to her Beast and kills it. Jo finds that she can talk to Beast in her mind and to Jane. They come to an understanding that at some points are quite amusing.
Jane and Jo meet a god
I would love to see more like this, short novellas that have a beginning and an end. Not making it a series, but knowing the characters and what who they are and not sure how they would interact was really enjoyable.
I've followed this series since it started. Some of the books were kind of weak, and I didn't enjoy. Out of the 11, I returned two because the story line annoyed me, and I thought Gin was made to look stupid. This one was really good. Had many twists and turns and showed Gin's growth as a person and maybe it makes her weaker because she cares so much about those close to her, but it makes her stronger because of the bond she feels. I really think this was the best in the series so far.
Gin of course. The way she interacts with her friends and relations, her growth and strength from learning to care and go the extra mile for the sake of being true to her feelings, and for what is right. (However she's still not afraid to kick some butt to show that she's still has it)
There were several, but the best was at the end when she meets the daughter of her nemesis M. Monroe.
Looking forward to how Jennifer Estep will continue this story with this new group of villains, who are all related to Gin's past. They seem to be stronger and more powerful than the old ones, and I'm afraid that some of the people Gin knows will be eliminated in the next few installments. It was promised in this one and the only way to continue the story would be to make it happen. Who will be eliminated, or tortured by Gin's enemies? We'll have to wait and see.
Never read any of the print versions, only audio.
Since this is a series, I can only say each of the characters, especially Eve, has grown and matured in many ways since the start of this series. Since this is book number 39, a lot of situations and characters have had many things happen.
Susan Ericksen is the voice of the "In Death" series. I can't imagine any other narrator doing this series. I've enjoyed every one of her narrations in this series. This was one of the best stories in my opinion. Touched on many issues with Eve's past (as always) since she had such a horrid childhood, which made her the "Cop" she is now.
I hope that the characters continue to mature and grow as they have. Truly this book was one of my favorites in this series. Thank you Nora Roberts, aka J.D. Robb
Never saw print
Besides the ending which I won't blow for those who haven't listened. In the start of the book a delivery boy brings flowers to Flower, and he asks her for her phone number. She realizes he's hitting on her and she say's I have bra's that are older than you. I laughed so hard. Some funny moment and some touching ones.
I've listened to Hollie Jackson narrate several books and I think she's great.
This was a great short book that really was enjoyable. I plan on getting more books by this author.
Brought in new character, loved the old guy trying to get used to 2000 years of progress in just a few weeks.....but he's a druid, so it flies. People were complaining about too many characters to follow. I had no problem. The story was twisted and in the end you find out some things that I guess will take us into the next book. But it was pretty awesome
Always love Oboron the dog. He keeps everything real. REALLY.
Yes, I love his narrations, he does voices and emotions wonderfully. One of my favorites is "600 hours of Edward" When I see him as narrator I always check out what the book is about.
Actually I did it was the 4th weekend and I listened straight through with a few breaks for food and other breaks. Didn't want to let go until I knew what would happen.
Can't wait for the next book and I hope Luke Daniels Narrates that as well he's wonderful.
Amazing character grouping
I loved all the main characters but Nina really was my favorite because she became stronger as the story progressed, wanting to help other characters, and realizing her strengths
Amanda Ronconi is amazing, She did all the characters really great, sometimes I think she does the villeins too well.
I did, I stayed up until it got to the very end. Couldn't help myself, I'm hooked on Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi
Can't wait to see what Molly Harper comes up with next. She's great with supernatural stories, and she really makes you laugh out loud at some of the situations.
Made me itchy for the rest of the book to come out. I love Molly Harper, her writing is usually so funny I'm laughing out loud, and with audio books that can be disturbing. (especially the strange looks you get at the park)
When chapter two ended I couldn't believe almost an hour had gone buy. I have in my wish list to purchase as soon as it becomes available.
So far at the end of chapter inventing a drinking game, you have to hear in in Ronconi's voices.
Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi seem to hit the nail on the head every time. Harper's words and Ronconi's narrations. I've heard Amanda Ronconi do other narrations and she's fabulous with all her work. I always look for certain narrators when new books are available. Ms Ronconi is one of my favorites.
I'm straining at the bit for this book........Don't know what else to say.
Yes, the last chapter really totally took the subject of autism out of the contexts of this book. Really disappointing, if indeed written by a thirteen year old who wanted to add a religious aspect to his feelings then maybe, but it just made me feel totally annoyed
It totally had nothing to do with Autism. As an Atheist, this was something that totally was added for effect. (whether it was done for effect or for emotion) it totally turned me off
I enjoyed all of the book up until the last two chapters. It talked about autism, from the point of the person who has autism. (As a person gets older, with the help of teachers and family with lots of patients some one with autism can learn) I recently read "600 hours with Edward" developmentally disabled adult with OCD. Even though he was high functioning adult with Asperger syndrome, and OCD. and it was fiction, I got a lot out of it and I think others would as well
No, It would be too demanding, maybe a movie if they left the last two chapters out.
When writing about a disorder, especially from the patients point of view, I had no clue of this persons views on religion, and why they put it in the last two chapters was beyond me. Other than that, avoid the last two chapters and enjoy this book it's well read and truly expresses what it's like to be a prisoner of autism
Emotionally, Eye-opening, and informative.
I loved that Edward was able to learn, with the help of his therapist and things hat happened in his life to step into becoming stronger for himself.
Yes, and he does a wonderful job with all the voices and emotions of all characters. Both women and men. Very talented narrator
Not all disabilities are visible, and those that aren't are sometimes the hardest to overcome.
This story really gave you a perspective of what it's live to be an adult with social dysfunctions and OCD. (And from what I understand Edward was mildly dysfunctional, because he was able to live on his own and take care of himself) This was a touching and entertaining story that you'll want to listen to in one sitting.
Very much so, the stories were well written and well narrated. I enjoy ALL types of Erotica, Kinky, Gay, Straight, everything if it's well written and narrated can light you up. (Unless you have phobias about certain kinks) I really don't have any so maybe that's why I enjoy Ms Tyler's anthologies. I have over a dozen and enjoy them all and so does my spouse.
If you've listened to any of Ms Tyler's anthologies you'll find they mostly revolve around kink, bondage or BD/SM but you'll find gender play and pain/pleasure. etc. Remember where talking about consenting adults and much of this is make believe. It's ok to imagine and use your mind to get off.
She did voices and emotions very well. In bondage and S/M there will be different emotions and voices she did a very good job of expressing each character
This is erotica, you should have extreme reactions, some should turn you on or make you get ideas to play around with your loved one. (as long as you both want to play) Like any book of fiction you have to take what you want and leave the rest.
I always look for Alison Tyler's books and anthologies, along with Rachel Kramer Brussel, Violet Blue, DL King, Sinclare Sexsmith. just a few of the editors who put together great anthologies of erotica. Looking forward to the next book in this series since it goes from A-Z
