I don't really know. I think they would rate pretty much the same.
When Tracker confronted Shadow and tried to convince him that his life was worth something. I also liked when Hell's Eight broke Shadow out of jail and they made camp for the night and several of the eight gave Shadow a hard time about how much he had fallen in love. It was nice to see that these hard as hell guys have a good sense of humor.
When Fei blew up the house of the man that her cousin was sold too. Shadow was so impressed by her bravery that he was speechless.
Ahh - maybe two or three sittings.
The narrator was good. There are some inconsistencies between this book and the previous books, but I'm still looking forward to the rest of the Hell's Eight books. I can't believe that it will take 3 more years to finish the series. I wonder if I'll move on and miss the last three books in the series.
Also, the author hasn't brought at least two of the Hell's Eight into any of the books or they've only had a line or two which I think will make it hard to draw them into the series. I'm not so sure that writing a series of 8 books over a period of 8 years is really a smart move because it does lead to inconsistencies and makes tying characters together between books a bit harder.
It was just the right length and had a very good, BELIEVABLE story for such a short story. Good erotic love scenes too.
For such a short story it wasn't too bad. It's a clean romance so if you are looking for something short and clean, give this a try. It's not great, but not awful either.
The narrator for one. I think she did a pretty good job with the narration for Matthew, but I didn't not like her voice for Bernadette. I think she did a better Irish accent than British accent.
I also didn't really care for the story of Bernadette. It was kind of boring. The last few chapters of the book were rather boring.
I thought that Bernadette's recovery after 4 tankards of gin was extremely unbelievable. The morning after being almost gang raped and forced to drink all of the gin, it was as if she was not affected in the least.
I did not like the proposal scene or accompanying sex scene. I just was not crazy about much of this book although I did like Matthew's character and his story. Seems a little odd, but Matthew's story was very good, it's just that the rest of the book didn't stand up to his story.
I might if someone was a big fan of highland romances. I wasn't terribly impressed with the book or the narration.
I didn't like that Amelia was so dead set against Duncan having to fight and I hated her constant defense of her fiancé. Duncan had a very strong conscience and I think she should have seen that. I can understand the distaste for fighting, but Duncan was a trained warrior and his life was to protect his clan and family. Those were rough times and every man had to be willing to fight. I liked Duncan and I loved his secret. That made the book worth listening too and provided a nice twist.
Anthony Ferguson isn't may favorite narrator, but he isn't the worst I've ever listened to and in all honesty it was just a couple of characters that I did not like at all. One being the uncle. Mr. Ferguson made him sound like a pretentious, ignorant fool. He really was't ignorant at all. he just wasn't real outspoken.
This book wasn't my favorite but I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
Everything! I was so apprehensive about starting this book, but I am so glad that I did. What a great story. I learned so much about WWII and what happened to people. It seems that we will never know the full extent of atrocities committed during that war.
I loved the people and their personal correspondence. I hate that we have lost the art of writing such lovely letters.
About mid-way through the book my favorite character was Marc Reynolds because he was just so clever with words. Then he became a bit too bossy and I liked Juliet best. I think I really enjoyed the book best before Juliet went to Guernsey and she was simply corresponding with the Potato Peel Pie members.
I thought all of the narrator's were fantastic. I liked that they decided that Susan D. would only read letters from Juliet and no other characters. This REALLY brought the characters to life for me. Each character was so real.
I know that the other narrators did several characters each, but these narrators are some of the best in the business and if you are new to audiobooks, you may never know that the narrators are reading letters from a few characters instead of just one.
I laughed out loud a few times and I was very disturbed during several parts of the book, especially when the author described the tote workers. Terrible.
I loved this book. I think that reading the book would be a little bit harder to get through because of the addresses at the top of each letter. The addresses can get repetitive and one might be tempted to skip over reading them; however, the addresses do ensure you know where each character is because of the address so they are important. I also thought having the narrators read the addresses would be a problem, but it wasn't. I was actually anxious to hear where the characters were and this was noted when the address was read before each letter.
If I had to choose one word to describe this book, I would use "perfect". This book was absolutely perfect. I loved it.
No - the narration was not good at all.
Mary's and Reese's introduction was very entertaining.
The introduction of the Rock Creek Six was very interesting. The book is really well written and a strong character base is built during this first book in the series.
I used the "whispersync" option and bought the ebook and the audio book both at great prices. I actually ended up reading more of the book than listening because the narration was just boring.
I would definitely recommend the book, but I cannot recommend the audiobook.
I cackled when Jack first met the Dowager Duchess. That conversation was hilarious.
Katherine Kellgren always delivers a rock solid performance. Ms. Kellgren has managed to keep the voices of all repeating characters the same in every book. I think that makes the characters more real.
I have really enjoyed every book in this series, until this one. I liked, but the ending with the resolution of the crime was just not believable and especially when the twins mother told the kids to "hold" Georgiana. Cat was supposedly in the bed sick and Sissy was in her wheel chair by he window which only left Nick -an 11 year old boy to hold Georgie. Too unbelievable for me. I also think its time for Georgie and Darcy to get on with it. They could get married and still have murders and mysteries to solve. If you have listened to all of thee books and enjoyed them, then you should definitely add this to your collection, but I don't think this books storyline is as good as previous books.
Probably not. I might recommend the book but probably not the audiobook. The narrator read in a monotone without much emotion.
I liked the story up until the part where Abby left the family. I know she was devastated but I found it to be a very selfish act when there were two children who had already experienced quite a bit of during their lives.
Providing a different narrator was used, I probably would.
The narrator is definitely not the worst I've ever listened to. She is just boring.
Entertaining, Clever, Original
Excellent narration. Her accents and character differentiation are fantastic. She is one of the best.
Miss Gwen without a doubt. I like how she always tells it like it is!
I was so sad when the book ended. I can't decide if I want to listen to this book again or start from the first book in the series and work my way through them all again. I thought Ms. Willig wrote a wonderful love story for Miss Gwen.
I didn't think that Eloise's story was as strong as it was in some of the previous books, but I was so happy with Gwen's story that I didn't mind the weakness or real lack of a strong storyline for Eloise.
If you've not listened to or read the other books in the series then Miss Gwen's attitude and seemingly harsh manner may not be understood. Beneath her gruff exterior lies a soft-hearted woman.
Definitely worth the credit if you like to have a little fun and understand the southern way of life; humor; and food. FUNNY! I had to get used to the narrator, but really liked her by the end. I cannot wait to listen to more of Trinket and Biddy's adventures with the Dixie Divas! Love them! I want to start my own Dixie Diva club.
