Absolutely. I was actually upset that this was all I could read (so far) But the new book Emerald Isle comes out soon, and I've already pre-ordered it.
YES!! Annino manages to pack a lot into her books. It didn't take days to listen to. There wasn't a lot of deep inner monologues (looking at you Kim Harrison!!) or descriptions that really aren't that pertinent.
If you love Carriger's other books you'll love this. Rue was great fun and it was nice to see the kids all grown up.
My one complaint is Moira Quirk's (who does a great job with everyone else) version of Lord Akeldama isn't what I wanted it to be. He's my favorite in the other books and hearing him played a different way was disheartening. Quirk is absolutely terrific with every other voice and is a fav narrator otherwise
I think I liked this better than FOL.
So many feelings. All of the feels.
I just don't have any words right now.
I like this, it was quick and funny and Alex had a fun sense of humor.
My one narration comment was that the I thought the narrator sounded like a grown up Peppermint Patty from the Peanuts cartoon. Not a bad thing, just interesting.
This was just sex. No plot. At least not an original one. The sex scenes were pretty well written, but were plentiful.
I loved the beginning of the book, but it lost a little bit of steam towards the end. The struggling comedienne stuff was pretty funny and she is a terrific narrator. The starting family stuff was less funny, but sweet and enjoyable.
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.
