I used Pimsleur to learn Italian. When I decided to learn Spanish I decided I wanted to try something different. I spent two years trying multiple different methods and got no where. I finally went back to Pimsleur. I have learned and retained so much more with this first level than all of the other methods over two years. With this you have to make the commitment to study Spanish 30 minutes every day. If you do it this way, not only will you learn and retain vocabulary, but you will learn how to formulate your own sentences with appropriate grammar.
The first two stories were really good. Based on this book, I will read the series by Nalini Singh. I found it very interesting. It was nicde having a Sookie book without Sookie.
I did not enjoy the second stories as well. They were well written and Johanna did a great job with the naration, they just were not what I enjoy.
Ms Parker is such an excellent narrator. I first loved her with the Sookie Stackhouse series. She will always be the voice of Sookie for me. It was nice hearing her do other stories as well.
It would be hard to be made into a movie or TV series because it contains four short stories from established series. They could make a one-off True Blood movie off the Non-Sookie story.
I have recommended this book to several friends. I completely enjoyed the book. It's a nice lighthearted novel. It was amusing and cleverly written.
I loved the interactions between Rosie and Don.
Dan O'Grady does an excellent job narrating the story. It is easy to tell who is speaking by his clear changes in his voice.
You cannot read the Divergent trilogy without being reminded of the Hunger Games. They are both Dystopian Series full of teenage angst.
The ending of the novel was incredible. I loved how she finished the series. With other similar series they try to wrap everything up in a nice complete ending. This one is left incomplete but you understand why the series is finished.
Poignant Love Story
The overall story was beautiful. I'm glad that it ended the way that it did. I think any other ending would have been forced.
I have not, but I would love to hear her perform other books.
It is a great story for small children. I especially love that Audible included both the English and Spanish versions of the story. This makes it a great way to practice Spanish too.
I enjoyed that Ricky Martin read the story himself.
It is way too short for a favorite scene.
The book is told twice, once in English, and once in Spanish, and only runs 8 minutes. It is very easy to listen to in a single sitting.
Of all the stories, this is the first one that I completely enjoyed. It takes place during the Mortal Instruments. It is funny without being forced. It has nice pacing and the narrator does an excellent job.
Magnus Bane, because he is the most interesting character in the series.
Magnus summons a minor demon and has some rather funny conversations with him.
I would say that they are equally as good. Robert Glenister did a fantastic job with the narration.
I loved the scene when they are in the shop trying on the green dress trying to gather information.
Very easy to tell the characters apart. Great pacing of the narration.
I did not have any extreme reaction, I just had to keep listening. It was written in a way that the detective work seemed very natural and as the story unfolded you became increasingly interested in knowing who did it. When everything is revealed at the end it is all very plausible and makes total sense.
As everyone knows this was really written by J.K. Rowling. I don't think I would have figured it out. It is definitely worth your time. I hope we see at least a few more Cormoran Strike novels.
