This is and existing book with lots of twist and turns leading up to one great love story. I don't which is richer the story of a vet getting over her PTDS and war scars or the love story between the vet and the sister of the lead sister of the band. It is a rich and many layered story. Showing the scars left over after the war and the just tender love between two woman when a professional arrangement keeps them apart and honor keeps them at bay.
The interaction between Joe and Lee (Both woman) I liked how they carefully constructed the love story, in slow tender little touches and almost invisible ways.
She had Joe's voice down perfect and really brought her to life. Lee to, showing her moments of PTSD perfectly and making it real for the listener.
I was on the edge of my sit for of the story. Between the stalker and the war time scars, and the love story it keep pinned to my sit.
This is a lovely story with a mystery, scars of war and a out and out love story. It is well crafted and I loved it.
Don't know, why I got the audio, haven't had time to read the printed version, on my list of things to do, If I ever finish Melissa Goods Awesome Partner's Two book that I fell behind in my reading with, and then I have 3 Gerri Hill's to get through before I can finally find the time and while I am doing that I have two major surgeries I have to have. So if I can live through all of that I might have time.
Radclyffe's other books like Homestead, Or Gerri Hill's (And my mind just went blank, the wonderful world of MS) Anyway Hill writes some great romance novels, Behind the Pine Curtain just popped in my head, while lacking the whole doctor's part, it has the romance only it's a lot about re-kindling a childhood romance when you return home. Still it's about finding your true love. Hill writes some exciting adventure/mystery novels as well.
I am no good with names but the lead doctor/GP doctor that was leading and falls for the mean old money cutting budget crunching corp. type. who of coarse really has a heart of gold if you can get her away from the board room and into the bedroom. I liked the way she tamed the beast.
It would be the young wide eyed doctor with the good heart and the patients to tame the beast of corp type, I liked the way she cared about every one, her patients, her family, her sisters, her new friends who didn't even know they were friends yet. Just would have to have a loving heart but a smart no nonsense head. I liked her a lot.
This was not my favorite of the many many Radclyffe books I have read, the one and Homestead seem to have been formula written.But she has written so many brillant books even her so-so books are like a 1000 times better than a lot of garbage that is hitting the kindle and book shelves. So give me a so so Radclyffe book any day.
If you love Kitty Norvelle Novel's and especial the Cormac character, then my friend you will love Low Midnight, so how could I not recommend. it. I have loved Kitty through all her adventures but Cormac has just been a delightful side dish that 1st Kitty, then Kitty and Ben could count on to always do the right thing. He was always the white hat who entered her novels by being hired to kill Kitty on air.. Only Kitty talked him out of it; as only Kitty could. And because basically Cormac is more the hero type.. Even if it is the dark, Wolverine style hero. Still he is kind of cool and now that he has another soul living inside him, who is not always pure; he has to be even more the good guy. Not that she is bad either; her motives are just sometimes cloudy.
That is a hard question, maybe a little Faith Hunter's skinwalker series for the Kitty parts but Low Midnight goes so far off that map into the sorcery, Maybe Ben Aa(something long) Midnight in Soho or over Soho. Only in how he talks to himself. Only Cormac is talking to the other person inside of him. And again there is Patrica Briggs Mercy Thompson Novel's for the Kitty parts, but again you are not into this novel. So it's hard to say who is like this novel. I mean who deals with Sorcery (Jim Batcher) but has the character talk to themselves all the way through because they are really two souls in one body perfectly at home sharing that one body.
I am not sure, I don't know who has done all the other Kitty books, besides this isn't like all the other Kitty books, I love who does all the other Kitty books, I love this book too. Well voiced. A +
Towards the end at the big climax, but I will not spoil it for you, let's just say it rocked. Gavin voiced it well. And it was well written as are all of Vaugh's other books.
Low Midnight while not being about Kitty but set in her universe was the kick in the pants the series needed to keep from being dull, maybe we can have a book about Ben, but I would still like another Kitty book too please, as well as another Cormac book, Even a Rick book, Have fun in Kitty's world for a while.
Yes I have all of Faith Hunter's Jane Yellowrock Book on Audio book's and I like to pull them out and re-listen to them from Skinwalker to Broken Soul to see How Jane has grow, lost friends/boyfriends and gained self esteem. She has been hurt but never stops, She and Beast seemed to have reached a peace inside her head. She is so strong willed and generally cool character. I love How Hunter write's her and how she is voiced on the audio book. I am not sure of the name of the person who voice's her with a great southern accent but she does a super job.
Booker Soul might be best compared to Carrie Vaugn's Kitty Norville Novel;s. Kitty and Jane are both complex-ed characters. They care for the people in there live's. Kitty for her Husband Ben and Cormac, Jane for the Kid and (God I am terrible with names) his big brother that live with her, Jane. also in early novel's cared for Molly and her kids and husband, They seem to have been written out of her later novels and the kid and big Brother are her charges. The thing is Jane does really care about people. Beast care's for Kits. Beast also cares in a primitive way about people and doing the right thing. Kitty is always weighing options to see the- How, What, and Why -to hurt the least amount of humans, against the least amount of people she loves; against hurting the bad guy and losing more of her humanity and giving to much over to her wolf half.
I like the early fight with Main Vampire Dude she works for and the Mercy Blade and her -all to teach her how to fight the European Vampire's when they came to town, or so she thought. It was a fun fight scene.
I wish I could but Real Life (RL) gets in the way, As it is, I listened to it the way I listen to all my books, with my headphones on, in bed, waiting to go to sleep; and as I fall asleep, then I wake up with it still going and listen a while as I clear my head then I cue back the book and do the same thing the next night until I am sure I have heard it all.
HUNTER writes a strong character in Jane Yellowrock. I like how she has mixed some Cherokee legend with mythology with urban Fantasy to create the story. And that she has a strong female lead. It is a good story!!!!!!!!!!!
The Lead for a All Girls Rock Band goes through woman like she is swimming in water, because she can't have the one girl she is in love with but won't admit even to herself, the other lead voice in the band who has worthless boyfriend. One day the worthless boyfriend comes up with a idea to have a three some with the Lead and it's one step too far for the voice comes with an idea of her own to pay the boyfriend back, she and the Lead will pretend to be lovers and twist his knickers into to knocks. Only the voice find she really is in love with the Lead who this game is about to kill her and she is ready to walk away and just about does that, until the voice dump the boy friend and chases after her in the night for a happy end? Maybe It is full of drama and twist for two people examining way and how of their love.
The basic Girl falls for Girl Hard story and you have to feel sorry for some who has carried a torch so long and some so blind to the one person who has been there for the whole time.
The voice of the reader was perfect, she made you feel both the old rock and roll woman who been around, and the young existed girl who fill got her head if not straight at least moving forward.
Rock-N-Roll Meets Forbidden Lesbian Fruit While two Rock Stars fall in LOVE!
It;s an old story but if they made a film I would love for them to have Melissa Etheridge play the Lead singer Part, and some like Katy Perry for the voice part, or some one like Michelle From Glee (Sorry her last name is gone from my MS infected brain) But it needs to be someone with a voice that can match Etheridge but is high strung, Pink would be good too. Just someone younger.
Yes, hearing David Tennant wonderful reading of an abridged form of the book is just wonderful, mostly because he is so talented. He makes you believe it's Rose speaking when he is doing her voice. He makes you feel something for what I can only call the monster of the stories. He brings a kind of human quality to them so that you at least see so of the POV. He tells a wonderful tell that I would of loved to have seen filmed with Rose and the Doctor.
When Rose ends up in the river Thames soon followed by the Doctor trying to save the world once again and them trying to grab on to the crates or trunks or whatever those things are that are floating in the river. And flight off the bad guys who have them cornered. And the doctor poof (It would be a spoiler if I told you how he saves the day) saves the days. The dead die and the living live on.
Rose- I have always had a weakness for Rose, the Doctor is 950 years old or more, he has been there done that many times, but Rose is just excited about being alive. She is always the heart of the show and the caring one, And can get the doctor in the worst trouble ever. Plus Rose can kick butt when she has too, she doesn't just sit there and wine she gets up and starts moving.
Parts of freaked me out, the idea of drowning is not a pleasant one but have things controlling my brain while I do it is worse. So there was a definite gross out factor with this story.
It is an awesome including the gross out factor parts. And David Tennett does his very best acting reading this story.
First of all that is so very short, less than an hour. I think they missed some of the poems from the book by the same name but I would have to pull my copy out and listen to it at the same time to be sure, and well I don't have the time to be that nit-picky. Anyway before I knew it, the audio was done. And I swear it missed a few poems, but got the best of the bunch collected here in this reading. I really enjoyed listening to the Charge of the Light Brigade and Tiger and a few others of my favorites. It was a little lite on woman poets but aren't all anthologies of poetry. Woman only write fluffy love stuff blah blah blah. The old boys club is hard to break into even today. Still it had some good pieces to listen to and it was short. (Way too short)
101 of the best Poems, The seashell anthology of Poems, The Giant Book of Poetry. The Immortal Poems. Just about any of the many $.99 cent to $1.99 dollar books of poetry books out there you can pick up for your kindle because the poets works are now public domain, and you just need someone to formulate the material into a book form for you and sell it for that low price.
I enjoyed the many accents and different voices on this audio, you felt the difference from Robert Burns Scottish voice to Lord Tennyson's very common man's voice on the Charge of the light Brigade. You hear Christopher Marlowe from the late 1500's and more modern voices from the turn of the 1900's. And you felt the difference in there tones, rhythm of words and general patterns of speak.
From the dawn of the written word, there have always been those who could weave magic into there words. Sit back and listen for a short time and hear the magic tapestries they have woven throughout the history.
It cost $2.95. True it's short but sometimes you only have time for short and fast; and it is fun and educational. And helps bring alive these genius beautiful words.
It was very entertaining. I enjoyed the way the lead charter who's name I can't remember lost everything but didn't let it bring her down, instead she builds a kind of home for herself and the street urchins she seems to become governess for. It is a wonderful book and I love how the book has to keep within Victorian standards.
In places it reminds me of the boxcar books, in other places it is like My fair lady, or Oliver Twist. It is really hard to pin it down to being like any other novel . Yet the plot is familiar, Women loses everything ends up on street but keep her dignity is in tact. She ends up taking a butch of street urchins under her wings and turning them into a force to be take notice of.
This was the first time I have listened to MS, Hardingham but I found her most enjoyable. She had just the right inflection to make it believe it believable.
I wish I had the time to just sit and listen to it in one sitting but I never have the time, but I had the most enjoyable time listening to it at nights before bed and letting it take me into the hands of Morpheus.
This maybe a little juvenile aimed novel but it is very entertaining and like Disney I think all ages will enjoy it. Just understand it's not 50 shades of Gray or the Hunger Games it's a Victorian time period novel with steam punk roots and some amazing parts. For some reason it reminded me a little of a modern day Box Car book with a little Oliver Twist thrown in but I have no idea where I got that, It's been 40 years since I read a Box Car kids book. (Yes I am old but not dead yet)
NO the printed word is always better but I sure enjoy being able to listen to it over and over again and again. I don't always have time or the energy to sit and read a book but I can listen to one and I enjoyed listening to Blind Curves a great deal. Looking forward to listening to Blind Leap. I am just sorry Diane and Jacob stopped with just 3 books in this series.
Yes it did, it keep me guessing and wondering what it would be like to be totally blind, I lost the sight in my left eye due MS and I now use just my right eye for seeing every thing, And it would drive me crazy to have to learn brill at my age, I am not sure I could learn it and I just love reading. So I wondered about the lead PI of Blind Eye and how it would be to do all that she could do. And Bud also gave me hope getting around in his wheelchair. And how stubborn he was and well the mystery keeps you guessing until the very end. Like a roller coaster ride.
I never listened to Aiko Nakasone before but I hope she does the whole trilogy so I can listen to her on the other two books. She kind of rocked my world; she was that good!
It's kind of stupid but there are two, the first is when Bud has to get out of his car for the first time and it goes step by step: though all he has to go through to just get in his WC to go to the bathroom. I felt that hit home for me because of my MS and thinking about some of my own step by step things. The second was how hard Tucker tries to please everyone at Blind Eye and how for a long time they kind take her for granite.
This is a lovely book, A great mystery. It shows both positive lesbians and differently able people living and working normal lives in a positive light. The story is charming and still gives you a good mystery with nice to follow clues. Over all I give it an A+
The pace of the story that it would let you think it was slowly down only to jump to warp speed. I liked the interesting way Vampire were brought to light (pun intended) in this story. They were not Buffy's two D vampires nor were they the over sex charged vampires of the Anita Blake (Laurel K Hamilton) world. Just enough balance between the two to keep interested in the story of a girl/ now a vampire passage into a new life style.
I like the lead character who's name has slipped my MS filled brain, but she had gusto and I liked her approach to suddenly finding herself among the un-dead and how fast she adapted to her new world and what guts she showed
It was wonderful. Just the right inflection in her voice to carry the character. She made you believe the story full of vampires.
Young girl college student wakes and finds she has become a vampire and now must walk a tight rope through the unknown world of vampire politics.
It is a fun start to what I hope is a great series I can't wait to read more of the other books in this series.
Yes, because it's a great story and for the silly reason I live in Louisville KY and have spent many an afternoon at Churchill Downs betting races. I enjoyed this behind the stables look at the races with a lesbian cast and fun characters. I enjoyed there interaction and how the racing industry works.
The strong female leads in the story and slow love story that happened between the two main characters set against the back drop of mostly Churchill Downs but not only there, It really was a wonderful and funny story. I loved the part were they steal the horse back to save it's life.
The part where they steal the horse back to save it's life. It was just crazy enough to be a really story.
I think her name is Rosa or Maria (Sorry I can remember her name) The Hispanic stable worker that was the main bosses like best friend. I got the feeling not only does she know where all the bodies are buried and that she is hot between the sheets to women. But she could keep you laughing until you busted something inside.
Great story, A + , both funny and heart warming but I loved the inside scoop on the racing industry and how it works.
