This book has kept me on edge from start to finish, the type of edge I feel while watching a close Redskins game, nail biting and all.
I listened to this saga by starting with Dead Man's Walk followed by Comanche Moon and then onto Lonesome Dove. The first two books had continuity, the Who, What, Where and When had all been clear. In Lonesome Dove however, it fell apart --- people and places that and who have been part of this story from the start suddenly A) moved, B) never knew each other, C) changed in the time of happening, or D) did not have the same bearing. I find this just a tad bit disconcerting and disappointing! I'll go no further for fear I run the risk of a spoiler. With all that said, I did love the base storyline and I'm glad I listened, the people and places came alive in my minds eye and the saga invoked all the feelings of humor,tension, grief and relief (not necessarily in that orde). So, If not for the continuity I would have given all three books a sold five stars.
This collection of stories are a little of old home, the writers kept the feel and taste of CH's books. I give a big "Well Done" to each of them. They also made a wonderful choice by keeping Johanna Parker as the narrater. Again, "Well Done". I have loved and still love the Sookie books and I mourn the end of the series. I find this book bitter because It's the last of a great thing, I find it sweet becouse it gave me one last taste of a wonderful series. So, if you loved and enjoyed the Sookie books as I have, this is a must buy.
Audible has given us the first three books in this series and I have listened to them all. I find them light and quirky. If you like Molly Harpers books, you may like these. I hope Audible will give us the rest of this series.
Well, all I can say is that I truly hope that this book of conversations, conversations and conversations is building up to a fantastic book 15. ON THE OTHER HAND...
I LOVE the Sookie books.
This series of books is one of my all time favorites and I'm truly sad only one book remains to come.
Charlaine has created a fun fast paced interesting world that Sookie lives in. so much so that I just can't get into the TV "adaptation" that loosely follows this series. Charlaines Sookie world rocks the way she penned it. You won't see me giving many 5 stars and I do with this group of books.Please start with the first book and follow them in order. I also like the narrator Joanna Parker for this series. Sometimes a narrator fits like Jim Dale did for the Potter books and so Joanna does here.
Molly's book are wonderfully funny, not a stinker in the lot. She also has another series just as good as this one, it centers around werewolf's, they too are a fun read (listen). Molly gets five stars in my book.
She did it again! Funny, snarky and a very good story line. Molly, please keep them coming.
Molly is one writer that knows how to spin a truly funny and pleasing story that leaves you wanting more. I've had the pleasure of all her works and not a stinker among them! I wait eagerly for her next book.
I enjoyed the book, a good and believable storyline. However, Howard needs to check location facts. Nothing drives me crazier than knowing some facts are wrong ie McLean is in Fairfax Co, not PG Co.and you look at the White House and the Washington Monument from the Hay Adams not the Capitol, this type of screw up bothers me.
