The reader was excellent and Emily Murdoch is a wonderful writer. Her writing can only be described as lyrical. But beyond the writing, the story was also compelling and made it hard to stop
I actually could not stop listening and devoured the book in a day
You can actually get this audiobook for less than a dollar, by purchasing the kindle version from amazon first.
The story was very enjoyable and quite funny. The heroine was quirky and endearing. The vampire was quite funny at first, but gradually morphed into your typical gorgeous, fantasy ideal-male character that is so popular in chick-lit. That's a bit cliche but the fun interactions between the two characters made up for it.
Amanda Ronconi's is an amazing performer. She is definitively a voice actor, not simply someone who read books. She was able to imbue the already vibrant text with inflections and nuances. Her voices and accents are dead on. I was really impressed, and will look for other books she has performed in.
Most definitely. I just wished the book was longer
I listened to this in one in two long sessions and stayed up a bit too late to listen to it. Obviously something about it captivated me. However by the time I got to the second half of my book, I was rolling my eyes quite a bit.
Ending was pretty predictable, not that's a bad thing in my book. I don't believe that every book must have some surprise ending.
The narration was very good. The Scottish accent wasn't very authentic, but that's because I have an ear for it, having a Scottish husband. Most people won't notice. She didn't manage to do a deaf accent, but that would asking too much probably. She still did a great job, and injected a lot of life into the dialogue
The Cheese factory ? Seriously this book was seriously cheesy.
I must have liked this book since I listened to all of it, which is a rarity for me these days. It was suspenseful and kept you reading. However as you progress into the book you begin to grow uneasy. This is like watching a science fiction film with weak sci-fi elements. Scottish men of that era simply did not act like that. Why even make the characters Scottish. Is this a thing ? An excuse to put a topless guy in a kilt on the cover? There was nothing especially Scottish about the culture described in the book, except for for using the words "clan" and "laird".
