I love to pick and choose from every genre. I find audible very relaxing when getting ready for bed, driving on a long trip, or even going for a long walk. I find that with Audible I can "read" no matter what I am doing which is absolutely fantastic

    On some days, New York is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. This was one of the other days... Melody Malone, owner and sole employee of the Angel Detective Agency, has an unexpected caller. It's movie star Rock Railton, and he thinks someone is out to kill him. When he mentions the 'kiss of the Angel', she takes the case. Angels are Melody's business...

    If you could sum up Doctor Who: The Angel's Kiss in three words, what would they be?

    It was very refreshing having River tell the story. Though it is not the book that the Doctor was reading in the TV show Angels take Manhattan it is more of a prequel to it, I would love to see more books written from her prospective. All of the dates, where your curiosity is peeked but they never reveal the secret. I mean who wouldn't want to know more about Jimmy the Fish. It could be released as her journal of sorts. Without of course, allowing there to be to many spoilers to be released as to not ruin the tv show.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Her point of view. It was so sexy without being slutty. As the DR is very non sexual in most cases, some of his best parts are when he is in a sexual situation, it was very refreshing to see her so full of sexual energy and to use it to her advantage. Not saying this book as any sex in it because it doesn't but I can certainly see why the doctor said Yowzah while reading it!


    What about Alex Kingston’s performance did you like?

    She played it brilliantly as she always does. Again if more books written by River/Melody Alex should certainly be the one who reads them. Anyone else would just ruin it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    To short to make a movie out of


    Any additional comments?

    I really do think that they should make more books along these lines. Let her finish out the angels bit ending with Rory and Amy being gone. Then start out a new adventure all of the fun things she does when she is with or without the doctor. We really do not see enough of the doctors wife on the TV show so it is nice to read more about her between shows.

    What if your whole world was a lie? What if a single revelation - like a single choice - changed everything? What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected? The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times best-selling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of listeners in Divergent and Insurgent.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not many. If you enjoyed the first two books in the series then this one doesn't really compare, It doesn't even feel as tho it is part of the same series except that you have the same characters.


    Has Allegiant turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No tho it may turn me off to reading other books by Roth.


    Have you listened to any of Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Only in this series. I am not a huge fan of Emma's voice but she did pull off the teen "tone"


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Honestly I can usually find something in a book or even movie to say well it was cheesy but I liked such and such. That is not the case in this book. You know how you get a new book you start listening to it and if time allows (and its a good book) you don't turn it off. You lose sleep listening to it. Well this book I could only listen to for an hour or so at a time. Then I would turn it off watch tv or even another book. It was like I had a filler book. "Well if I don't have anything better to do I guess I can listen for a bit." So sad because I adored the first book so much for the last one to be so bad.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Ed Westwick did a great job really pulling you into the book. The story was entertaining just as the others written in this series.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    I feel like my 11 year old is reading this book. The parts read by Ed Westwick are fantastic but the parts read by Molly are bad, really bad. I have no idea why they would replace the original reader with this girl. She paused in the wrong spots and then would read faster in others. Also the sound was off you would get use to the volume of the male, then the girl would come on, and you had to turn down the volume. The story was just as good as the other books but I had to go purchase the book because of the performance.
