I only gave a 3 star on "OVERALL" because the spacing between chapters was WAY to long anywhere from 6 to 10 seconds. Most spacing should be only 1 or 1.5 seconds tops. The problem being that your not sure if your Ipod or MP3 player has died. I think that this story can easily be re-edited to remove the time between each chapter, and make the story much more fluid. I love the characters, and I love the idea of a whole new kind of para-normal situation. I can't wait until the baby is born. Gail Carriger has a wonderful and spirited heroine. And Emily Gray is wonderful with narration. (But please fix the LONG pauses between CHAPTERS) I will defiantly continue with this series.
I have all of Larry Corriea's audio books and have listened to them more than once. All the narrators of every book have been great and the stories are usually nonstop action.
While Joe is helping the Japanese try to fight the Russian Deacon, he blasts the USA national anthem from the speakers of the robot he's working .....To the dismay of the Japanese ......
Bronson Pinchot is a fantastic narrator, when I see that he's doing a narration, I almost always listen to see if I think I'd want to get that book. He can do every voice and accent and emotions. I enjoy his narrations very much...one of my top 10
It was very easy to do because it was just about an hour.
Anytime I see Larry Corriea has a new book available I automatically get it, I've never been disappointed ever. One of my favorite narrators with one of my favorite authors....how awesome is that. .
I would and have recommended this series to several of my friends. Anyone who enjoys The Dresden Files, or Felix Castor series, or John Taylor & The Night Side series has to love this one.
I can only compare it to other series of books and I named them above.
Gilbert Jackson is wonderful in this series. He does both male and female voices and emotions of all characters fantastically, I hope he continues to narrate this series. I also hope that more books in this series come out real soon. I finished all five books in this series in under 10 days.....
Sometimes you have to be bad to be good.
This series shows that both good people can be nasty and that nasty people can be good. We are humans after all and make choices. I love that about this series. Also that the characters grow in each book to show new strengths in their personality. Must have more Alex...
When I turned on to Audible and saw this offering I was thrilled. Since just reading about "Flanders Fields" in my Sunday newspaper, it was just a wonderful gift to your loyal customers for this time of year.
What happened that Christmas of 1914 one hundred years ago can not be compared to anything that I know of. Truth is often stranger than fiction.
This was done beautifully with a full cast. I usually don't like sound effects in my audio books but it was done with style and class. There were many times I laughed out loud at the British dry humor. I also felt emotional about the deaths from war.
It was easy enough to do that is was just over an hour long. I didn't know where that hour went it had me so engrossed listening to the story.
I love that the story is coming from one of the officers writing to a mother of one of his comrades who died and served with him ......the letter is written ten years after, to the mother. I can't imagine a mother not knowing about her son because no one bothered to contact her that he had died in the service of his country. Yes this is fictionalized about that time but it none the less shows that we are all human, Thank you Audibe for this wonderful gift.
All the characters from previous stories really grew and developed in different ways. I think that Luna realized ahead of Alex that some times you just have to deal harshly with bad circumstances....
*Spoiler* When Arachne has a conversation with Alex at the end of the story letting him know in very simplistic ways (to quote Shakespeare) "The evil that men do live after them the good is oft interred with their bones" (Meaning people usually only remember the bad things you've done and not the good)
All of them actually, but besides Alex, Arachne is one of my favorite characters, and just as in the myth she speaks truth.
Even good people have to do harsh things to survive
I'm about to start book five in this series, and I hope that there will be more books to follow. It seems that like "The Dresden Files" and Felix Castor series each book just gets better an better.
I enjoy all types of erotica. BD/SM, gay, straight, lesbian, etc. A well written story by great authors This is one of the best collections I've listened to in a while a great collection of authors who write great erotica.
Many of the stories have surprise endings, and they really made the collection more enjoyable. One of my favorites IS " Three Legs in the Evening" by Janine Ashbless I don't want to spoil it for anyone
I had many favorites and when you have 22 to choose from it's hard to pick just one "Lauren's Journey" by D.L King was very good so so many of them were. I liked all 22 but loved about 18 of them. If you enjoy GOOD erotica, that is well written and well narrated I recommend this one highly.
Several stories were exceptional I already mentioned two, but Sensate Silicone, The Contest, Book Swap, The Secret Game, Second Look A Pervertedd Fairy Tale, Moonshine Ballad, Cherries in Season, The Perfect Massage, Full Frontal Neighbor, The Whole of Me (also a surprise ending), Notes on a Scandal, Appetizer, Mikhael, The Mating Chamber
There is over 10 hours of great listening and some stories will really surprise you, and most likely turn you to new authors to try, I know I'll listen to this more than one time. Well done.
I've listened to many books from Tristan Taormino and I really enjoyed them Lily Bask I never heard before but she did a good job of narrating . My problem was that these stories were all very edgy and pushed all the relationships over the edge. I don't mind a mix of this but all the stories were very hard edged, and over the top.
No I just like a better mix of stories in an anthology, all these stories were about lesbians doing things that most people wouldn't do in any relationship, whether it be gay, lesbian or straight. All the stories pushed the envelope and I just couldn't enjoy that many stories in a row of that nature4. I'm not saying they were horrible, just too much in one anthology.
She did a good job with the stories she had to read. It was just too much of subs, and doms and control issues. If you're reading one story about this it's one thing but 22 short stories in an anthology about lesbian erotica should have been a better mix. (just my opinion) I have several anthologies by Tristan Taormino and have enjoyed them. If you enjoy listening to so many sad situations in every story then this is what you may enjoy. It was a bit depressing after a while
Yes, listen to something more positive and upbeat.
When an anthology is put together even if it's supposed to be pushing the envelope, I feel there should have been a mix with upbeat stories as well, that could have made this a better collection. This is the first book by Tristan Tormino I have to return. I know I can't listen to this again.
All the bizarre characters, great paranormal living in this small Texas town.
I don't want to give away a spoiler and it would be if I mentioned it. Charlaine Harris really knows how to develop characters and especially knows how to push the envelope I've listened to several of her series which I've loved. I was disappointed with the ending of the "Sookie Stackhouse" series. However this maybe something we can get out teeth into, and hopefully it will only be a Trilogy like they say. I think she just went too far with Sookie and couldn't end it right.
She was very good with characters and emotions. I really enjoyed her narration
When you find out who killed Aubrey, that really got me. I think everyone will agree with this one.
I hope Ms. Harris won't keep us waiting too long for the next book in this series. I truly enjoyed it.
Cary Elwes and all the cast members adding touches to the background telling of the making of this wonderful film classic. So many moments that were exposed to those who love this film. I laughed out loud at some of the tales told about the making of this film
Each narrator brought their own special touch and special flavor to the story of the making of "The Princess Bride" Stories about those who are no longer alive and what they meant to the cast that survives them.
I won't go there.
If you are a fan of the move "The Princess Bride" as my family has been for over 25 years, this is a must listen. After you've listened to it, watch the movie again with your loved ones.
Action, Packed Ride
I just finished the fifth book in this series and can't wait for another to come out. Each book is better than the last. I'm hooked :)
How Cat and Ian had to work together to save the day.....there were some real funny moments
As usually she did a great job and made the story really roll along.
Looking forward to a real major story from this series......Jeanine Frost can you hear your fans?
