I love the accents, it brings the story to life beautifully. The expressions of emotions capture Gail Carriger's intentions beautifully
This series has the most entertaining and unexpected twists I have experienced in a long time. Gail has taken well researched and understood fantastical creatures - vampires, werewolves etc. and cast them in a new light. Its a fabulous adventure story with a strong female lead which I adore! Every time I read or listen to it again I discover a new dimension
The life of the characters is brought out, you feel you are sitting there watching the going-ons of the different people, it is a delight to listen to each character being expressed with such care as to reflect the intentions of the author
I laughed ...a lot! I was highly entertained from start to finish and only hope to encounter situations in which I can use some of the beautifully crafted lines.
Amelia, definitely the best character, sassy, fun and full of brains
Refer to answer above! Ramsey was a close second though!
She brings such life to the sharp wit and keeps the story pacey.
I did indeed, the mystery was full of twists and turns and kept me guessing!
I will be purchasing more of this delightful series.
The character development is exquisite and I came to love all the main characters even the "bad" ones. Such a balanced view on each drew me into each twist and turn and finding myself with divided loyalty.
I loved both leading ladies actually, but it think the hypnotherapist wins out.
Caroline Lee allows one to savour the beautiful, lyrical nature of the writing and fully absorb the characters without rushing to keep up with the action.
The ending was realistic and yet serendipitous, love those endings.
I wouldn't try another in this mystery series. Will I keep trying J.K. Rowling in the hope of another Harry Potter, definitely
The ending. The book built beautifully, lots of intrigue and wondering but the end answer just didn't live up to it. It seemed somehow illogical to me.
He did do brilliant accents and voices, you knew character from character. The swearing is more intrusive in an audible book though and there is A LOT of swearing.
The explicit language really tainted my view of this book. I was forgiving it until the end of the story was so unsatisfactory. The writing is eloquent and it's a swift and absorbing read though.
I love Gail because she writes what we think in a fun, flirtatious manner that makes one want to live in the world in which the characters do just to be able to say and do what they do.
The mystery is delicious and the development of the world which had been created in book 1 is both absorbing and outlandish! The new characters are great too!
Tricky without giving out an spoilers, needless to say nearer the end featuring the main characters.
Mystery in the North, the new Lady Maccon investigates!
Buy it, immediately!
What if ?
The book follows 3 women, all of which you come to appreciate for different reasons
It's moving as it shatters pre-conceived ideas and sets one off on a "what-if" mind spin. Refreshing and emotionally challenging.
Elegantly written, worth reading. I'll be reading several more from this author.
Amelia is fantastic, by far my favourite part of the story with hire witticisms
Definitely, every time I thought I had it figured, there was a twist
It allows one to savour the details, when reading it, because it is so action packed, one tends to bypass some of that.
The growth in Peeta and Katniss's relationship
The end of this book is so much of a cliffhanger that you'll need to buy Mockingjay immediately!
It sits in the middle, it was a highly informative and complicated read. However, the narrator has a voice that could lull one to sleep which made concentrating rather tricky. Multigenerational story lines meant keeping track of characters and relating to them hard work
Toward the bottom, whilst being lighthearted, the mystery was solved by luck rather than intelligence.
The reader is a great one, the story was just a bit weaker than I hoped
More romance than mystery
One of my absolute favourite!
Very few books are as quirky and different as this one. The adventures of Amelia Peabody are in a similar style but without the fantasy.
Emily Gray does a great job of creating unique voices for the characters so when listening its so much easier and interesting... I particularly love Conall's voice.
Most of the book moved me to laughter, fantastic humour!
Read it, read the rest of the series, read all books by Gail Carriger
