  • Bone Shop: A Marla Mason Novel

    Marla Mason is the chief sorcerer of Felport, a woman who's tangled with gods and monsters and come out on top (if a bit damaged in the process). Bone Shop tells the story of Marla's evolution from runaway to sorcerer's apprentice to mercenary magician and beyond. Fans of the urban fantasy series from Bantam Spectra that began with Blood Engines will find surprising secrets revealed about Marla's past, and new listeners can get to know the character from the very beginning.

    "Seriously? Is this read by a Muppet?!"

    Story

    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.

    Atlanta would be a nice place to live, if it weren't for the magic. When the magic is up, rogue mages cast their spells and monsters appear, while guns refuse to fire and cars fail to start. But then technology returns, and the magic recedes as unpredictably as it arose, leaving all kinds of paranormal problems in its wake.

    Story

    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.

    Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    Story

    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.

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    Bill says: "Not the best audio book in the series"
    "Harry died, and came back a horrid narrator"
    Overall

    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.

    At last, for a generation that's materially ambitious yet financially clueless comes I Will Teach You To Be Rich, Ramit Sethi's 6-week personal finance program for 20-to-35-year-olds. A completely practical approach delivered with a nonjudgmental style that makes readers want to do what Sethi says, it is based around the four pillars of personal finance - banking, saving, budgeting, and investing - and the wealth-building ideas of personal entrepreneurship.

    "Deadly dull, filler filler filler"
    Overall

    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.

    Published almost 10 years ago, Guilty Pleasures marked the debut of a writer who was destined to grow from cult favorite to a major bestselling author. Now, for long-time Anita Blake aficionados and newfound fans, Guilty Pleasures makes its debut in downloadable audio

    Jeanette says: "In the beginning"
    "Very Disappointed, Rip Off"
    Overall

    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.
