Yes, Lots of twist and turns.
The ending, there is a twist at the end that I was not expecting.
He is the perfect James Bond
I am not a fan of the James Bond movies, but I am becoming a fan of the books, I am working my way through the series and they are a great listen.
A better narrator would have made a much better story, Charlotte Hill is shrill, and at times I did not know who was speaking. If there was a story behind this book, I did not listen to it. Ms. Hamilton is starting to poach phrases from her other books and I feel that she has run out of things for these characters to say and do. I put up with the sex because Merry is from faerie, but these people don't ever go outside.
There was the constant rehashing of things that be talked about over and over again. How many times do we have to hear about how the men look, about Doyle's earrings, how long the men's' hair is and how they look its beginning to read like an Anita Blake story.
Maybe if she reads Pride and Prejudice, or Weathering Heights .
Not a one
This was a terrible book, and I don't know if I will continue with Merry if there are any more books, it might be time to say goodbye.
This is not the same Laural Merlington that read the other books, her voice is too shrill, she sounds like she does not care about the story, she sounds lazy
Does not matter since there is a book 9
Please find another reader, because I don't know what happened to Laural Merlington voice, maybe she is tired of Meredith.
I don't know if it was time well spent or not, I listen at work and I am going to listen to something.
The least interesting thing in this and all Anita Blake stories is the need to rehash things, and that Anita gets an attitude when someone questions her life, but she flaunts it in everyone's face when she has to deal with different law enforcement. Ms. Hamilton also needs to decide if Anita is going to be a strong woman or a whiney little girl, and I think that she needs to stop saying things like yummy, and what flavor of something some one is, and last but not least stop pointing out the differences between men and women its 2014, not 1814.
I might listen if she were not doing a series, she changed her pronunciation from book to book, may be because there was another narrator for some books and she forgot.
I don't think so
This may be the last Anita Blake book for me if the character does not change, the last 3-4 books are interchange. with each other.
It started out with a story and got sidetracked by the sex, Anita can't take 5 steps without someone wanting to have sex with her. We need more story. We don't need all of the
She's doing strange voices, Micah went to Ireland and came back a Leprechaun, and Asher sounded strange.
We don't need the resume of every character in each book This is book 21 we know who is who..Anita needs to decide is she is a girl or boy and stop pointing out the differences so much.Stop using Yummy so much.If Anita is so tough she does not have to talk about it, actions speak louder than words.What happened to Ronnie, Zombie raisings all the things that were in the first books.
I worked my way thru all of the original James Bond stories, and I enjoyed them very much. Simon Vance is James Bond on Audio, just remember the stories are dated and if you are offend easy do not listen.
I have listened to it again and again, it is such a good read or listen and i fall in love with Call and Gus over and over.
The Virginian- another Cowboy who stands for what is right in his world
It would be Gus, because he is such a raconteur, it would be a dinner you would never forget.
If you need a book get this one and you will not be sorry.
No, E. L James can not write, and Becca Battoe is a horrible reader for this series.
No, her voice is to whiney and shrill, and my inner goddess would hula on my grave.
I am working my way thru the entire series, so I am getting more of the story.
Laural Merlington was fine for the first two books, but for some reason she has started to pronounce the names in a diffrent way, I was gooing to check the books to see if I misunderstood, the names of the characters.
I hope Ms. Merlington stays constant with the way she pronounces the names in the rest of the series.
It's a story that you don't want to end.
I would compare to Lonesome Dove and not becasue they are both Westerns.
The Virginian, because, he was true to the character
Its hard for me to fall in love with a character, but I fell head over hills with the Man from Virginina. It made me laugh and cry and never want the story to end.
This book was written over a hundred years ago, but you cant tell, it is well written and well read.
