anything. starting with a better narrator.
maybe something non romance. it seems like audible is trending towards using narrator's that sound like old women for their romantic fiction.
she sounded far too old. it's more than a little creepy to listen to a story like this as told by your grandmother.
I hoped to hear something I hadn't heard in his stand up - however these blurbs came off as parts of his stand up recorded and labeled as an audiobook. Every HBO special he ever had was in here. I could have watched the stand up and at least have had the joy of seeing his facial expressions as he ranted.
Written something original. So sad to not have anything new here. On the bright side, I now know not to purchase the audiobooks from which the material was selected - as I realize those are just material from his standup act.
I ordered this and the when will someone bring the porkchops book at the same time. Burned twice in one order.
All of them.
I wouldn't recommend using your credit on this unless you love his stand up so much you don't mind hearing it repeated, or you've never heard his stand up at all and want to hear something funny. If I hadn't seen all of his standup specials I would have enjoyed this. Since I have, I just feel burned.
Tina' s performance is impeccable. Her comedic timing is opt-in, which must be difficult to master when transitioning from visual to written medium. I had a hard time turning the story off - I just wanted to keep listening. I hope she writes and narrates another book soon!
I loved the honesty, the humility and the downright sarcastic tone of the book.
The tone, and the way she laughs at herself.
I laughed all the way through.
Oh, this is a tough question. Iced is such a great read, and I really enjoy the peace of snuggling up with a good book - but this performance is so spot on that I think I love both formats equally.
said it before and I'll say it again - nothing compares to this series!
I have two favorite scenes -
1. When Dani dies at the church. This scene somehow manages to be tense, sweet and hysterically funny from one moment to the next.
2. Dani and Ryodan's fight at the club when she discovers he is still alive. KMM writes characters that make you want to scream at times, and this is one of them. So much goes unsaid here that I find myself wanting to jump into the book and mediate, just so the characters will finally understand that they care about each other.
Don't skip this book because you are too attached to Mac and Barrons. I guarantee you will love Dani and Ryodan just as much - if not more- by the end of this book.
I don't think I would recommend the audio book, but would definitely recommend the paper book.
n nothing compares to this series!
Phil's voice as Barrons is just too over the top. He puts so much effort in being a baritone that accent and emotion are virtually nonexistent. Natalie reads Mac well, but just cannot portray a southern accent, which detracts from the story. They both do so much with the characters of Ryodan and Dani in Iced that I honestly wonder if they felt so much pressure to live up to the ideals that people had built up around the characters of Mac and Jericho that they overdue their performances here, which actually hindered the overall quality of the final product.
All that said, they are still light years ahead of Joyce Bean.
The scene where Mac overcomes Barrons' compulsion through Voice was a powerful one. I felt this was a turning point for Mac, in which she finally understands that in life only she owns herself, her actions and her soul. She also realizes - or begins to - just how powerful she is becoming. We also get to see a softer side of Barrons for just a moment.
There is nothing to compare it to. This is my favorite series in this genre for a very good reason!
Both narrators are terriffic at getting emotion across, however, their very, very poor attempts at Gaelic and southern American accents have a tendency to rip you out of the story frequently. I wanted grind my teeth every times the character Barrons laughed. The inconsistency of their accents is very noticeable, and very jarring.
I wish this wasn't the end of the series!
