    Would you consider the audio edition of Key of Light to be better than the print version?

    For my busy schedule, audio is always a better option


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The fact that the answers to life problems are always within.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. She is amazing. Susan is definately what the standard should be for any reader of audio books. So many books are ruined by the reader.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was a little hard to follow at times. I may have to listen to it again before I read Book 2

    The title character from ABC's hit television series Castle kicks off his new series of books featuring tough and sexy New York police detective Nikki Heat with a bang.

    Would you try another book from Richard Castle and/or Johnny Heller?

    maybe


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The whole story just wasnt very interesting. It was like reading a long version of one of the hour long Castle episodes. One episode of Castle is much more entertaining than this whole book.


    What three words best describe Johnny Heller’s voice?

    Kind of boring


    Could you see Heat Wave being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Maybe if they told the story without all the fluff in the book.
    If you watch Castle, the characters are the same with different names.


    Any additional comments?

    I had to MAKE myself finish it

  • Breaker's Reef: Cape Refuge Series #4

    Story

    In the fourth book of the Cape Refuge Series, a teenage girl is found murdered, and the scene matches one in a book by a famous mystery writer who just moved to the island. This murder has a connection to Hanover House, and the residents there might never be the same.

    Story
    Where does Breaker's Reef rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was an excellent story, clean language & well written, so out of at least 150 Christian novels, it would be in the top 25 of my favorites


    What other book might you compare Breaker's Reef to and why?

    I might only compare it to the others that Terri Blackstock has written as she has her own distinctive style. This series had its own sort of special love being shared between characters that also shared extreme hardship & grief. It was very good.


    What does Reneé Raudman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is a better than average reader. At first I thought her accent was a little too southern, but by the middle of the first book she proved to be very talented in creating each character with her voice.

    Story
    (280)

    Sculptor Clare Kimball has captured the attention of the New York art world. But big-city success cannot burn away the half-remembered nightmares that have plagued Clare since childhood. These phantoms of the past have drawn her home to Emmitsboro, Maryland, to the small town where she grew up and where her father died in circumstances never really explained.

    Anne says: "This is one of my favorite books!"
    "Does Ms Roberts hire these readers herself?"

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    no


    What other book might you compare Divine Evil to and why?

    any of the "in death" series by JD Robb


    How could the performance have been better?

    DEFINATELY if someone else had narrated it!


    Did Divine Evil inspire you to do anything?

    yes. not listen to this reader again.


    Any additional comments?

    Does Nora Roberts actually hire these narrators herself? I don't think so. Why would she want her books to sound so boring that you have to MAKE yourself listen some of these voices?!
