The last few haven't been the greatest but I remain a Stephanie Plum/Janet Evanovich fan because they still make me laugh out loud. I went into this book hoping it would be better than the last. It was. It was like the good old days! I laughed out loud multiple times and was very happy. There weren't any scenes in the funeral parlor which was kind of weird, but plenty of cars got blown up. This was probably the best one since 11 or 12. If you're a fan and you've been disappointed in the last handful, you won't be with this one. The story is funny, the writing classic Evanovich and the narration is spot on.
I liked the first book, Splintered. I really liked this one. The series is a riff on Alice in Wonderland mixed with the teen angst, love triangle of Twilight. I can picture the Team Jeb and Team Morpheus shirts. I had to stop listening when it got too angsty for me, that's the problem with being in your 30's and still listening/reading YA fiction. Once I got over wanting to slap Alyssa for being a whiner I really got into it. Rebecca Gibel is the perfect narrator for this book. Great book!
This was a great book. I am a fan of the In Death series, Robb does an awesome job- it's amazing to think that there are so many and she does such a good job at keeping them entertaining, (granted some are better than others). This book was more focused on the crime committed than on the characters that we've come to love. There wasn't as much banter and interaction with the supporting characters as there is normally because it was more focused on the crime- but that doesn't make it less of a book. A nice addition to the series.
Half Moon Hollow rocks! What's not to like about Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi? And then to make it free? Sign me up! The story is good, a prequel to what I hope is her next book. If you're a fan, you'll like this one. If you haven't listened before this is a good intro. Very entertaining.
I was at the book store when I saw this book and Kevin Hearne's name on the cover jumped out at me. He's one of my favorite authors so I decided to read the first in the series since he gave the book/author his approval. I was not disappointed, it is a great series!! This installment does not let down! Angele Masters does a good job, you can hear the differences in her characters and she conveys emotion well. My only complaint is that she's a little slow. Not so slow that I want to chew my arm off and beat myself to death with it, but much slower than I am used to. Overall, great listen/read!
This one was okay. I normally like Georgie but she was kind of a drag in this one. The story was kind of meh, the title gives it away. If you're a fan of the series, you'll still like it. Katherine Kellgren does a great job bringing all of the characters to life.
This was my first Phryne audiobook. I have read all of the other books in the series. I'm not a huge fan of this time period normally, but I love Phyrne! The story was good. The killer wasn't glaringly obvious. The riff on Sherlock and Watson was okay. Pretty entertaining. Stephanie Daniel did a great job. I may buy the first and start the series over, she did such a fantastic job.
I have read every book in this series and I have really enjoyed them. I'm not sure what it is about this book, but I just can't get through it. I've been listening on and off for over a month (which is a long time for me). The narration took some getting used to but is okay. I kind of want to punch Hadley's ex, but with the relationship foreshadowing in previous books, he didn't really come as a surprise. I don't know why I can't get into this book, but I think it will be going back.
This was by far one of the funniest books I've ever listened to. The synopsis doesn't do the story justice. If you are a fan of Moore's then this should be a no brainer, but if you are new to Moore then you absolutely need to to give him a chance. This book has everything; romance, death, hell hounds and ancient Celtic goddesses giving hand jobs in dark alleys. . . Fisher Stevens does a fantastic job- it's slightly politically incorrect, but spot on none the less. Buy this book!
This book was entertaining. Yes, the series has become pretty predictable but it still makes me laugh out loud. I enjoy when Ranger's cars get blown up and/or totaled. I like when Bella gives Stephanie the eye. I like that there is a love triangle. Joe and Ranger are great characters and if Stephanie finally picks one, the other will probably fade away or maybe get his own series. King does her usual great job. I can't imagine anyone else as Stephanie.
What ending could be worse than Lorelei waking up to find it had all been a dream? This ending. I have thought that this series was kind of meh but I am a big fan of Lorelei King and was intrigued by the premise of the books enough to keep at this. Big mistake. I thought Lorelei was a whiner the first two books and she just gets worse. Every other thought in her head is how she knows she can't stop what's coming and how she'd give anything to not be the prophet. It's one big pity party. She is worse than Bella in Twilight as far as being an anti heroine and sucking it up goes. At least Bella found her big girl pants in the end. Lorelei does not. Lorelei King is a great narrator but it was still hard to listen to. If I hadn't known it was the last in the series I would've given up and stopped listening, but I was hoping Jones would create an amazing ending as she is prone to do. Nope. Pity party, cop out ending. Ugh.
