This collection of stories was fun and imaginative. It's a great way to re-connect with Sookie while waiting for the most current book to be released. Don't expect these short stories to bring you on a long, in-depth journey in the world of Sookie. Instead, they are just little fun events that give you a little more insight into Sookie and her friends. If I had to sum it up in one word, I would say it's "charming."
There were a few key things that happened in this book. It was frustrating, however, to have to listen to all the useless information in between those key scenes. I got tired of listening to detailed information about a side character and his clothes. What's the point? We will just forget his name later anyway. The only reason that I'm continuing to read this series is because people assure me that it gets better.
I would absolutely recommend this audiobook to others. Not only does Patrick Swayze reveal his life's story, his conviction and heartfelt emotions make this book engaging and enlightening. Where Celebrities usually seem "untouchable," Patrick brings a "down to earth" mentality, so much so that to call him Mr. Swayze after listening to him divulge his secrets and thoughts as if he were a friend would seem cold and distant. Patrick and Lisa deliver a warm, thoughtful, and inspiring narrative. This is a great find!
One of the reasons I like this book so much is because I've not read a book to which it is comparable. In my opinion, it's in a class all it's own.
I was especially touched when Patrick spoke about his dog, Cody. At this time, it just resonates with me.
The entire book was moving. Patrick and Lisa "laid it out on the line" and poured their hearts into this work. I feel honored to have had the opportunity to get a glimpse into the lives of such amazing people.
Enlightening, fascinating, brilliant
I loved that this story brought together all of the other books in the series. Perspective is everything.
The narrator's performance was clean and the characters came to life.
When the main character revealed his love.
I originally began listening to the Anita Blake series with Cerulean Sins. I LOVED the narrator, Cynthia Halloway. Her voice was incredible, feminine and embodied everything that I envisioned in Anita. I actually think her voice made the books better. The narrator of this book (and a few others) does an adequate job, but it's just not the same Anita that originally compelled me further into the series. Her essence is not the same. One thing I do like...it's nice to hear Jean-Claude with a French accent. Overall, the book itself is pretty good. I really enjoy knowing how the characters began to interact. It's refreshing.
This book was a disappointment. I've read all of the books in this series and generally enjoy them for their balance of action, politics and mature content. This book, however, seemed to have a lacking storyline and too many love scenes.
This book has some very useful information that helps the reader establish a new perspective. The message is simple so that a person can take practicle steps that can be used day to day in order to initiate change.
This book was AWESOME! I can't wait for the next book! Wow!
