Sadly poorly executed.
Of course, Alexia is quite marvelous, but I am rather partial to the idea of her husband!
Emily Gray is perfect for these stories and previous installments have been very well performed, but this version went wrong somewhere in the editing/production. The pauses were all were all over the place, leaving great yawning silences,sometimes between sentences which really spoiled the pace of the story and overall effect for me.
Alexia's exploits are hilarious, but I got quite annoyed with this book because of the stupid gaps and pauses.
This audiobook needs to go back to the producers to be improved upon.
This story follows on well from the first book and was in many ways much better with a stronger faster pace. The narrator is excellent and having just finished this book, I can't wait for the next one. What will happen next?
Among the top ones.
When the group realize the truth about Noah.
Adam's home situation.
This is a book meant for a young adult/youth audience, but I rarely let such classifications put me off, even though I am far from a teen myself. I've read all of this authors other books and find them to be very refreshing. They offer Supernatural fiction with a nice twist of darkness. The stories have a fairy tale type quality that I find hypnotic and some truly interesting characters. I love the way the author let's us learn about her characters, and am already in love with these boys, although each of them is totally different.This tale is no different from the others in that it has several layers to it which I can't wait to unfold. Looking forward to the next. Will Patton is a great narrator for this story.
Yes, because it well performed, a little different and entertaining.
The fact that its a little different. I couldn't say I'd read a similar story somewhere else.
Amanda Ronconi is perfect for reading these kind of stories, I love her slightly sarcastic and easy going rendition.
This is not an extreme kind of story, its an entertaining, easy listen.
If you feel like something a little different with a murderous and Supernatural twist, you should try this series. This book is number two and follows on nicely from the previous book without recovering old ground.
Yes, because it is a classic which is rather dull to read, and perfectly read by Mr. Mison.
I don't like any of the characters. I'm not sure you are meant to.
Tom Mison's reading was excellent all round.
None, why on earth would I want to do that?
I still don't get why this story is held in such high esteem, but I thoroughly enjoyed a cold November afternoon listening to Tom read it to me while I did some cooking.
No, the key to this book is the mystery, albeit a fairly predictable one. Now I know the story I wouldn't listen again, its not exactly complicated and I struggle a bit with this narrator.
They were all clichés, so all good characters for this kind of story, but there was no one to really like or admire. As clichés of the romantic Scotsman go, I liked him I suppose.
Thankfully Xe didn't sound as bored and sarcastic as in a previous recording that I had to send back, but her intonations when reading are a little odd and I didn't find the way she read suspenseful. Her Scottish accent like many American narrators was awful.
Like I said, all the characters were clichés, so no one sticks in my mind.
I liked this story because it was exactly what I was expecting and in the mood for. It was a lite,easy to get into ghost mystery. Totally predictable, utterly clichéd, but perfect for a dreary afternoon.
The fact that the culprit is so obvious. I read this book some years ago and never read the rest of the set as I found the plot line too simple and knew who the killer was the moment they came into the story. People keep telling me I'm missing out with this series so I decided to revisit the book and listen to the story instead. I still feel the same. Too obvious!
No surprises here then!
No, but I thought he was an excellent narrator.
Yes, despite being obvious, its really well read and offers a slightly different perspective on the Tudor court. The historic information is very interesting and its not a bad mystery, just an obvious one.
Worth a credit or if on special offer.
Yes, if they are looking for something light hearted and a little different.
This is my first, but I might try others now.
The scene in the churchyard towards the end of the story.
Predictable, entertaining, sad.
Gus because everyone else was so needy and selfish. He was the only character who wasn't.
The final scene at the bottom of the river.
I found this story rather depressing... it made me sad.
Fairly highly, its well read and is a good story. Made me want to hear the next in the series.
Zane of course!!
Completely. I hoped I'd figured out what was going on pretty early in the story, but wasn't completely sure, I just wanted to know that everything would end the way that I wanted it too. I really bought into the story and the characters.
Yes, this is teen fiction, its a great story and well worth a listen if you like paranormal romance type novels.
I loved the performances of all stars in this production. James McAvoy was perfect. The way this story was performed transported me straight into Neverwhere which I was very happy to rediscover. It was even better then I'd hoped and remembered.
