I have read this book but was drawn to hearing it read to me. I was hoping that the audio would be as good as my actual reading of it. I found that Reading did an excellent job with narrating it and as usual Stephanie Meyer outdid herself in her first foray into adult writing. I used to be a big fan of Stephen King but when I heard him say Meyer could not write, I lost all respect for him as a writer and reviewer. Meyer has done an excellent job with writing about an old over done subject. Her new twists and plot were excellent. Great job!
I would recommend this book to a friend because it was well written and executed in a manner that engaged the readers.
The excitement - plot.
Joy Humbolt/Sydney Rye
No extreme reaction but I found it very interesting and felt the politican and boyfriend were excellently portrayed.
I was given Unleashed (A Sydney Rye Novel #1) written by Emily Kimelman in exchange for an honest review.
I found that Unleashed was well written with character and the plot development executed appropriately thus highly engaging the reader.
The lead in this book is a strong female protagonist who doesn’t take crap from anyone. Within the first few pages one finds that Joy Humbolt has made significant changes in her world – out with the boyfriend, becoming unemployed and adopting Blue – a rescue dog. She is also taking on a new career as a dog walker. However, in her new role as a dog walker Joy finds herself buried in intrigue up to her neck! Moving from Coffee Barista to dog walker to sleuth seems to be a normal enough move for Joy. What she didn’t count on was the consequences of her sleuthing.
Thus the birth of Sydney Rye – a thrilling read involving a buried treasure and corrupt politicians with a dash of dead bodies here and there. The dialog is natural and while there is some foul language it is not gratuitously done. I enjoyed listening to this audio book.
The narrator, Sonya Field, was clear and concise – my only issue was she spoke too slowly at times. I feel the audio production was well done.
I found myself engaged and enjoying Unleashed. I am eager to hear the rest of the series.
Unfortunately, this was purchased as a "freebie" and they don't have it available for my iPod or my iPhone. Way to go Audible!
The reading of the book was delightful. The story itself, as always, victoria laurie continues to do good work. I love the series and the narrator was excellent.
I loved this story - it spoke to those of us who aren't blonde, gorgeous, thin and all that. It was carefree and entertaining - the gorgeous didn't get the guy for a change. The narration was excellent and easy to listen to. Well worth my credit!
Janet Evanovich takes Stephanie Plum to new heights (sorry Biggs) with her writing skills and Lorelei King is excellent as the reader and performer.
This is an excellent series of books - Mark Tufo has joined the ranks of Brian Keene, Dean Koontz, and Stephen King in keeping the suspense. Character development is excellent and flow is smooth and easy - The narrator is excellent as well - he IS the voice of Michael Talbot.
Dont' miss this first in a series - excellent!
I find that Suzanne Toren is an excellent nararrator and Joanne Fluke's books are excellently written, exciting and holds suspense. I have even reproduced some of her recipes which are better than anything I've bought from a bakery!
The story line was great - romance, action and supernatural all mixed in with a handful or two of comedy. The voices were great and kept up, fast paced story - it is awesome - of course Stephanie Plum is the best but the Full series take a close 2nd.
Everything from the reader to the plot was excellent. I found excuses to listen to this book at work and home when I should have been doing other things. I am already a big fan of Fluke and Toren did an excellent job!
My grandson loved it! I have since purchased more for him. He loved listening to the reader and found that it helped him understand more than when he read it himself.
