I listen to anything and everything that Katherine Kellgren narrates. She is a masterful voice actor and absolutely brings books to life.
This is a fun fantasy. Likeable characters and an easy-to-follow plot. Just a good story to take you away from it all for awhile.
Absolutely. Just a nice story. Fun to listen to, and I would recommend Katherine Kellgren any day!
Katherine Kellgren's many voices. She is always superb!
I can't remember exactly. I smiled and giggled all the way through.
No, it was just fun!
Actually, I liked that I learned more about the female pilots of WWII than I had known. I didn't expect to get that much history, and it makes me want to learn more.
Velva Jean, of course!
I don't normally listen to a book more than once.
I enjoyed all of the characters.
No. I enjoyed him though.
This was my first Edward Rutherford book and I really enjoyed the history wrapped into the fiction. I learned quite a bit. I'm moving on to another Rutherford book now, "New York".
The narrator. Absolutely horrible. I listen to audiobooks almost exclusively, and I have never bought a book with a narrator this bad.
I will never know because I can't finish it. The narrator has ruined it for me...and I LOVE Hiaasen's books!
Wrong accents. Wrong inflection. Just wrong everything. Very distracting.
I wish I could get my 1 credit back!
The story and "who-dun-it" was a lot of fun, but Katherine Kellgren's performance was stellar!
I loved that the story was set around an old, traditional, English Christmas. I felt like I was there!
They are all brilliant, but my favorite is Queenie!
Katherine Kellgren's "Queenie" makes me laugh out loud!
This may be Rhys Bowen's best, and I didn't think Katherine Kellgren could get any better, but she knocks this one out of the park! She seemlessly jumps back and forth between many characters, with many different accents. You eventually forget you are listening to just one narrator.
No, I don't usually listen to books twice...but I LOVE Jacky Faber!
Katherine Kellgren is, without a doubt, one of the best voice artists ever! She IS Jacky Faber. I seek out books narrated by Katherine.
No, only because I hate it when the book is over, so I stretch them out.
This may not be the best in the Jacky Faber series, but I enjoyed it very much. Jacky has become like an old friend and I very much enjoy her adventures. She is my favorite literary heroine and I will continue to buy as long as L.A Meyer continues to write!
Lots of fun, and I learned some Egyptian history! Katherine Kellgren is just a brilliant narrator. I seek out and listen to any book she narrates! On to Book 2!
I love this series. Katherine Kellgren is my favorite narrator, and the Royal Spyness mysteries are just fun. Can't wait for the next one.
I almost didn't finish listening to this book, it was a little hard for me to get into until the action started getting good near the end. By the time it was done, I knew I had to continue on to Book 2. I am now on Book 4 and am completely engrossed in the life of Jacky Faber, one of the greatest characters/heroines ever! Needless to say, if you start with Bloody Jack and don't get what all the hoopla is about, hang in there and go on to "The Curse of the Blue Tattoo"...you WILL get hooked. I am a 40-something woman, and I listen and read all sorts of books, for all age groups. I am a huge Harry Potter fan, and I must admit, this series and the character of Jacky Faber are AS GOOD, in my opinion.
All that being said. Yes, the narrator is fantastic (I could do without the singing. I find it extremely annoying and usually fast forward) and the action is great, but I don't think some of the subject matter is appropriate for young kids or even young teens. I wish the author had not included SO MANY references to attempted rape and such, but maybe he's staying true to the times. Thank goodness there are 7 books in this series, and another on the way...I can't imagine a day without Jacky Faber and her adventures. She's a lovable one, she is!!
