I enjoyed the book. It's a light and breezy mystery. However, the narrator sounded like a Theater Arts major attempting a British accent. It is not convincing, especially after hearing Barbara Rosenblat's spot on character portrayals in the Amelia Peabody mystery series.
Yes, I would recommend this audiobook, especially to fans of Neil Gaiman, and/or the performers. Also, people who enjoyed the radio dramas of the 30's and 40's.
It reminded me a bit of Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins - perhaps by way of Harry Dresden's under Chicago world of Faerie.
I did quite enjoy the performance aspect of this book. I've resisted Gaiman in the past, but now I believe I've been won over and need to read/listen to his other books.
This is a fun reader's theater of a book. My only critique of the performance was that sometimes some of the voices were a bit hard to hear. But all in all, I really enjoyed this book. I'd like to try more of this type.
I really enjoy the moments when Evalina interacts with Sherlock Holmes. I do think Sherlock is dumbed down a bit for this series, but he certainly has more heart than his traditional portrayal.
Yes, she is excellent in this series. Does a good job with both women's and men's voices.
This series is an interesting combination of steampunk, magic, mystery and romance. The author does a very good job at balancing the three. I did find myself annoyed with the protagonist occasionally, but I think that indicates that the author did a good job of drawing me into the story. I am waiting anxiously for my credits so I can purchase the other books in the series. I also like that it's a good long listen and yet I've not lost interest in the story, and I can easily differentiate between the characters.
The byplay between Oberon and Atticus is always hilarious, and this novella is no exception, but most of the book is about Atticus and the Moragan.
The first one.
This fills in some backstory, but is very minimal and certainly not necessary for continuity for the series.
I've loved the book series for years, It's great to listen to it as well. Each has it's own charms, but I must admit Davina Porter is charming to listen to.
The confidence Miss Tonks gains through her adventures
Davina Porter is always excellent to listen to.
I am rapidly working my way through this series and I LOVE it. George Guidall's narration is absolutely spot on for each and every character and Walt Longmire is a great man's man protagonist. You really feel the chill and wild beauty from the descriptions of Wyoming, you clearly hear the respect that Craig Johnson has for the mountains and people of Wyoming. There is some cursing (Vic - I speak of you), but it matches the character so well I wasn't as bothered by it as I could have been. I highly recommend these books to anyone who loves a good mystery and a well written book combined with a perfect narrator.
After all the controversy over having a new narrator, I went back and listened to this whole series again and then listened to Ghost Story with John Glover. I think he was great. I guess I'm not as tied to James Marsters as I thought I was. I agree with the reviewers that Marsters really has grown into his role as Harry Dresden and admittedly he's fabulous now. That being said, I think John Glover did an excellent job stepping in and giving Harry and the other characters a different flavor. Variety is the spice of life!
David Suchet really is Poirot in my mind. He narrates this book wonderfully. One of the very best of Christie's mysteries.
We have all loved this series. So glad we found it when all three books were out. Loved Alan Cumming as the narrator. I'll be watching for more books that he reads. This has been a wonderful introduction to steampunk novels.
I really enjoyed this audio book. The narrator was excellent and even though it was a bit difficult to keep track of the many characters, and the time shifts, it was well worth it.
