Hilariously funny follow-up!
It builds on the series, while adding new mysteries to solve. The ending was definitely a surprise because the villain of the story isn't who you would assume it was.
She brings the characters to life with different voices for each character and in each book, the character's voice doesn't change. I like that in a narrator.
A guest house to run and I have a ghost who wants me to play Sherlock Holmes!
Amazingly true story!
The trial phase of the book. After all of the evidence and the ups and downs prior to the trial, the trial brings to light the final moments of the victims.
Not yet, but I will if he performs any other book I'm interested in hearing.
If it hadn't been so long, I could have easily have listened in one sitting.
This book, and indeed the whole series, ranks at the top of my funny mystery books! I love a good mystery but this book include a lot of laughs also.
It definitely held my attention and kept me guessing as to what would happen next. There were enough plot twists that, when I thought I knew who the murderer was, I was proven mistaken.
Before this book series, I had never hears Amanda Ronconi's performance.
Who knew a bump on the head could turn life upside down in a hilariously, funny way!
With the exception of the narrator, I loved them both equally.
I don't think any book can compare to The Harlequin.
Holloway gives no life to the characters. She changes her voice so minimal between each of the characters and without Jean-Claude's accent, it doesn't even come close to what Kimberley Alexis brought to the books. If it wasn't for the fact that I am low vision impaired and I love Anita Blake, I would have passed up the narrator.
Most definitely, if the narrator was better.
Oh My Suspense!
The final fight with "It" and how it flashbacked between 1958 and 1985; entwining past with present as the main cast of characters fight for their lives and the lives of all children in Derry.
No, I have not listened to any other of Weber's performances, with the exception of "The Shining" movie, I had never heard of him.
If it had not been over 40 hours long, I very easily could have listened to this in one sitting.
I have not had the opportunity to read the print version.
Smithback. I loved William Smithback's character since he was introduced in The Relic. Even though the books center around Agent Pendergast, Smithback has a tendency to steal the limelight with all of his crazy antics. He is always managing to get himself into scrapes that Pendergast has to get him out of.
I like all of the performance. Marosz does a very good job staying true to the voices he gave to each character. Not all narrators are able to do that.
If it had not been so long, I could very easily have listened to this book in one sitting.
The narrator. Kimberly Lexis does such an amazing job with the accent of Jean-Claude, the voice of Edward and Anita. The accents are so dead on accurate that it really brought the book alive.
Whenever Anita came up against Jean-Claude. He loves to call her his ma petite as much as she hates to hear it. A close second is the final fight with Nickolaos. Can't help but love a book that has a variety of preternatural creatures that you either love or love to hate.
Jean-Claude. Her performance of his character was made so much better by the fact that she does a French accent very well. You can almost picture him standing there, speaking to Anita.
Actually, it was a book I listened to all in one sitting. I brought it along during hunting opener and with no deer in sight, I listened to my book. Enjoying every minute of it!
What a start!
I am a huge fan of the Anita Blake series in book form but in all honesty, it cannot be compared to any other. Other then Stephen King, I rarely deviate from my favorites. Neither author can compare with the other and I cannot even begin to explain why.
The final fight with Mr. Oliver. Even though Anita could have died, she still managed to kill her master by force-Alejandro, kill Mr. Oliver and save Jean-Claude.
The last thing Anita Blake, the Executioner of bad vampires wanted, is to be tied to Jean-Claude,Master of the City.
Yes. After watching "The Conjuring" and knowing who Ed and Lorraine Warren were, it was really interesting to hear more about their lives and the cases they were involved in. In the telling of their work, it really opens a persons eyes and reminds the listener that good can overcome evil.
The most compelling aspect was how Haberkorn relayed the story of the Warren's and how he used his voice to create an edge to the telling at the intense parts of the story.
No, not yet.
I don't think I could capture the content any better.
The fact that it stayed focused on the characters and their plight.
Actually, I enjoyed all of the characters; however, there were several characters that were very easy to dislike (if only because they were just plain evil).
I am new to Audible and enjoyed how Esparza was able to change his voice just enough to distinguish that it was a different character speaking.
I really enjoyed it. It did seem to slow down towards the end of the book, briefly, and I was completely stunned by the ending. Though, I must admit, that rarely has Stephen King failed to keep a reader/listener hanging until the end. There were a lot of funny parts and the death of several of the younger characters did make me cry. I was rooting for them to all make it to the end.
