This story is engaging. I like the characters that Ms Harrison has created very much and I really like how she has thrust all the witches, vampires, pixies, etc. into relatively present day Cinncinnatti. The society she has constructed for them is interesting as are the interactions of these species with each other and their human counterparts. This is a great escapist reading just for the fun of it. The narrator is well suited to the story.
All three of the titles in the trilogy are most excellently performed as a radio drama for the BBC. The actors do a splendid job, the effects are realistic. I felt as is I were watching the performance in my mind. Highly recommend this audio program.
I really liked this story. The narration was a bit dry but I did appreciate the pronunciation of unfamiliar German words. I thoroughly enjoyed the character of The Hangman.
Not a crafty person so all the needlework references were a bit wearing but helped fill an afternoon of housework.
This story grabbed me from the start and never let me go. I was glued to my Ipod for the last three days. Ms French is so very good at character development. The narrator sounds plausibly Irish to my American ears. (He may well be an Irishman but if not, he does a great job with the accent) I highly recommend this entire series.
This audiobook is the perfect storm of narrator meets protagonist meets plot. Michael Kramer IS Felix Castor. He hits all the right notes here. And the story-Mike Carey does a great job of genre-bending. I do not care for Jim Butcher and this series is in the same vein but the writing here makes all the difference to me. Not for the faint of heart; there is gore galore but the witty dialogue and interesting plot twists make this book well worth while. The entire series is highly recommended.
Smart, funny, endearing
BrIdget is so very real. Having been a singleton myself, I can easily relate to her dating ups and downs.
Ms Rosenblat does a great Brit.
Bridget, of course! She has such inner poise. Mark Bloody Darcy is a great character too.
One of my all time faves. Sits high atop the Chick Lit genre. Nothing else comes close.
