So I loved the story from the beginning to about an hour a half before the end. The narrator was really quite good. Adding her to my list of good narrators. Without spoiling the story, I'll say that it's not quite what you think you're getting. I loved the story of a girl going back home after having come out of her shell and getting the attention of the man she had a huge crush on as a teen but he ends up not living up to the fantasy. Then she finds real love in what I would have called her second chance. It's STEAMY and Sweet. But apparently the author wants to come up with as many second chance opportunites as possible. Whatever happened to HEA. The ending (last 90 min) is rushed and PAINFUL. And just yesterday I was loving the story so much I barely even noticed the god awful traffic had doubled my commute home. So yes, I would recommend this story but don't be somewhere you can't get upset when you get close to the end.
I've read this series on kindle and was excited to see how it worked as an audiobook. The narrator did a good job on the men but the ladies were just okay. Would have benefited from having a woman to do the female dialogue. But that being said the book was good and in looking forward to the next in the series.
I love Molly Harper. I've yet to read on Kindle or Audible a book by her that hasn't had me laughing outloud. I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas was no exception. The writing is hilarious, add Amanda Ronconi's narration and it's a match made in heaven. Well a funny vampire, werewolf, and witchy heaven. This is the book to listen to when stuck in traffic on the way to grandma's for another dry turkey dinner. You'll arrive laughing and having a good time.
If you need a little something to tide you over until the next Molly Harper book comes, out this would be a good pick. In the same genre of fantasy in a contemporary setting, the book is funny and sweet but not great. I'd say it's credit worthy for Ronconi's performance alone.
I don't normally read classic science fiction, but this is a classic and I needed something different. Boy did I get something different. This is essentially the story of the end of the world. But it's not all sad. I highly recommend this classic sci-fi novel to anyone who's ever watched 2001 a Space Odyssey and gotten it. Or even sort of got it. The narration I thought was very well done. As for the story itself those who like character driven stories will be a little disappointed. But those who love plot twists are in for a treat.
This is apparently (at least I hope so) going to be a series. The author did a good job of more or less wrapping up the main story of this book while keeping questions open for the sequel. I wish she had tied up a few more loose ends though. I'm not a big fan of having so many open questions at the end of a book regardless of whether it will be a series or not. I was quite impressed by the narration of Tavia Gilbert. I'd not listened to her performances before. She's most definately going on my "good narrator" list. Is this credit worthy? Sure. But I'd wait until at least the next book comes out.
I checked with my best friend who’s an amazingly talented tattoo artist and apparently, it’s completely possible to mix ashes in with the ink. I thought using this idea as the starting point for the novel was one of the most unique ideas I've come across in a novel lately. I don't want to give anyway anything from the story but it's an awesome and realistic view of this unique subculture with a great paranormal twist. Memorial tattoos are bittersweet for the artist and client both. It truly is a good and useful hurt.
The narration was awesome as always with Luke Daniels. He's one of my favorite male narrators. He does very distinct voices for each character and the women actually sound like women. I highly recommend him as a narrator and this book in particular. Very credit worthy.
While this may be marketed as a Young Adult novel, Nickel Plated is a great read for anyone. A nice change of pace from the vampires and dystopion novels that have saturated that category as of late. I don't normally give out such high marks across the board for an author I've never erad before but this one deserves them. By no means a lengthy story its still rich in characters and moving. The narrator Nick Podehl is a new one for me and I thought he did a comendable job on the variety of voices, accents, and ages.
I would recomment the series and this book on paper but not on audio. The inconsistant narrators (3 in 9 books) who don't know how to pronounce character names is kinda annoying.
Probably not. She's going on my not so great narrator list. She pronouced names wrong, her accents didn't make sense for the characters. Prior books are very explicit in the accents of the characters, but apprently she didn't get that memo.
There are a lot of people who love to hate this series and the author for that matter. Do I think she could edit and keep track of her work better? Sure. But most of the problems I have could be solved with a better editor and publisher. I think in paricular to this series they could have gotten a better narrator. That being said I really enjoy this series. It's nice to have a book where characters talk about the Goddess. The pagan theme in modern times is a refreshing change.
When She Woke is a dystopian novel that takes place after the "scourge", a virus that causes the majority of women to become infertile. In response, fundamentalist religious groups get Roe v. Wade overturned and abortions are now illegal. It's a frightening vision of a future where to be “other” is bad and where the right to control your body is taken away. Many readers will see similarities to The Scarlet Letter and The Handmaids Tale, but it is its own novel and tells the familiar story in a new way.
I rather enjoyed the narrator, Heather Corrigan; I thought she did a great job with the diversity of voices and accents. I highly recommend this book and it’s definitely credit worthy.
I've never not liked the main character as much as I didn't like Stella. Maybe it was the fact the entire story is written in first person. It's like listening to a really long letter by a naive and milquetoast with no passion. The only saving grace is the narration. Gemma Johansson did a great job with a nice Scottish accent (both male and female). She did an amazing job considering the script.
