This was a fun book to listen to. I loved the deep southern accents and all the references to Charleston- a favorite place to visit.
The story was great too. I love a good ghost story. The ghosts in this one were real and metaphorical. I liked the tension between Amelia and Devlin. I'm interested to see where that goes.
Will absolutely continue this series and curse myself for not starting it before now.
I liked Mallory's Jolie Wilkins series, and the first half of the Dulcie O'Neil books.
I thought this was much better than the others. Its contemporary with some ghosts instead of a completely different paranormal world, which was nice. It wasn't quite so over the top and the romance didn't feel forced.
I really liked the mystery in this one. I was very interested the stages murder scenes.
The Ethan/Merit stuff was pretty normal, but it was nice to see them stand on solid footing.
From his bio "Christopher Moore (born 1957 in Toledo, Ohio) is an American writer of absurdist fiction".
If you aren't familiar with Moore's work, get familiar. Just remember that its all absolutely absurd. Though my favorite with always be Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal, this book was a winner. An ordinary man becomes a soul merchant in the blink of an eye and has NO IDEA what's going on. Saving you a synopsis, I can tell you that this was funny and absurd and I didn't want to turn it off. Very enjoyable.
There were time that I actually laughed out loud. And there were times that I was confused, and times that I had to rewind to make sure I didn't miss anything. When James gets some of his writing ironed out, this series is going to be amazing.
While some of these problems were true and hilarious, I did feel like they could have all been fleshed out more.
This is the (for now) LAST installment of the Morganville vamps. And while I hate to say good bye to the gang (read: Shane) I am actually really glad that they can be happy and just settle down for a change. The four of them deserve a normal life. And while I probably wouldn't have made some of the same choices they did (I don't want roommates forever) I'm pretty happy with the way the series turned out.
Over all, I really enjoyed this. There were some heart fluttering moments, really funny moments, quirky characters and just a general good time.
However, some of the humor fell flat, Julie had some really bitchy and annoying moments, and the plot was (at least for me) fairly predictable. But it was still enjoyable and will read the others.
This is definitely YA. Love triangle, ansgty stupid girl who, if she'd just stopped to ask or actually talk about what she saw, there would have been a lot less drama, YA.
I like the story- which is odd, because I hate 'The Bachelor' love dating shows (which this basically is), am not the hugest fan of dystopian (which this is) and love triangles make me want to put my nails down a chalkboard. But for some reason, it works.
It pains me to give Chloe Neill such a low rating. I think part of this was the narrator. While she does a nice job reading, her voice doesn't match a 15 year old girls and so there is a bit of a disconnect. It wasn't that it was bad, but I found my mind wandering and not that excited to finish. I liked the ending, but the build up was not all that.... Build upy? Anyway. And okay story, but not great
I have NO IDEA why I love this series so much, but I've read the whole series (and I actually had to READ the last two AND the shorts) I love Violet, Doc, Harvey, the kids etc… Its a funny, cozy mystery with hints of the paranormal. Its not the best thing every written, but it was very captivating and I devoured the series.
