For once, a writer who doesn't need explicit, 5 page long sex scenes to sell a book.
I bought two books this time, the other book was an abysmal disappointment. There's some pretty descriptive gore-fits with the story, some nice humorous moments, and a damn good story.
I would've given it a triple 5 star except the narrator had a couple mispronounced words, a little distracting but not awful.
If the other books in this series are this good, I'll be a happy reader. Most books on this site have been pretty awful and a waste of credits.
I should have, and will from this point on, review a book before buying.
In the first two sentences my jaw dropped. I checked to be sure my speakers were working. I can picture a female Elmo Muppet reading this. Very distracting especially during the foul language.
I'm boggled as to why this person is a narrator.
If she reads the rest of this series, I won't purchase. I can't get into the story at all.
Every book I pick up lately.
It's like the author needs some filler so the characters have the longest, most descriptive sex imaginable. Do you remember every moment? Cause if you do, you're doing it wrong. It's not supposed to be like a baseball game's play-by-play.
'Gone With The Wind', it's a brick of a book. You know Scarlet and Rhett have Bonny but do they have to tell you how that happened or do the few steamy embraces give your imagination enough content?
I gave up on the Merry Gentry series because it was a good plot in the beginning, then it turned into sex and how many words you can throw into it to make it go on, and on, and on. Let's throw in kinky, with other kinds of beings: vampire, fae, changelings, demons, angels... uhm. ENOUGH.
I hate movies where regardless of danger the characters decide to have a long meaningful talk while something is eating the population, or the time on the bomb is ticking down, or some other ridiculous event is happening. They took that stupid plot device, and put in sex, as often as possible with any and all characters. It's become like a competition between authors of just how kinky and long they can make it-is there a contest on how many pages they can drag it on through?
Give us a story, not a porn flick.
Please take this utter piece of crap off the site, hire James Marsters, and for the love of Goddess, don't expose further innocent fans of Jim Butcher to this narrator who sounds like he needs some Saturday cartoon work. I couldn't even concentrate on the story this was so BAD. I'd like my credit back, a village called and they are missing their looney toons voice over for wile e. coyote.
The 1st 10 minutes are so deadly dull I wished for a refund.
I don't care about your fat college buds who ate blue whales. I didn't waste a credit to hear comedy,
I wanted to learn about money. You want to be in comedy... well if you're rich it wasn't from that line of work.
The rest of this very long, waste of a good credit was loads of filler, loads of condescending repetition
of the same material, and attempts (fails) of being witty.
Waste of time, no value unless you have no one you know to ask for advice, and were possibly raised by wolves.
I really wanted to like this book. Looking for something new after the audiobooks of The Dresden Files were all downloaded. The author is usually good. The audio book SUCKED. First, every single time a dramatic moment happens they play nerve-jarring music. Top that with the narration itself... I stopped listening after less than 20 chapters and deleted it. Flush that credit.
Seek something else, trust me.
