This is exactly what a dominatrix exploration should be. It is positive, clear, and exciting. Everyone should read this book. Wonderful job!
I love this series. The writing is good. The ideas are brilliant, and the characters are all tragically flawed and relatable. I will miss Rachel Morgan and her family.
Great melding of language, acting, and writing. Doesn't get old. Can't wait for the next book. Read it. You will like it. I love it.
The Peter Grant collection a paranormal detective series which takes place in central London. This assembly is a fun listen by a sci-fi author with Dr. Who cred. The stories are interesting with sharp wit, dry British humor, and can withstand ridiculous behaviors like binge listening. I have binge listened to the first three books, and I still love this series. If you like collections like The Dresden Files, you will enjoy this selection. Furthermore, the narrations are a perfect match for the writing. Worth the listen. Highly recommend.
This is a brilliant series that takes place in foggy day London town. The wit is sharp and tight and there are no idle moments in this blues walk whodounit. Take five and curl up with this series. You will enjoy it.
This is a fun series full of quirky characters, and I love quirky characters. Ravaged ups the stakes for the characters and has a lot more action than other installments in The Hunger. Ravaged also involves some interesting character development and fully introduces some newish and definitely awesome characters.
This series is brilliant. I am so glad I stumbled across it. Ben Aaronovitch captures British sarcasm perfectly, and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith narrates it wonderfully! Together, the book and the narration really bring the London experience alive. It reminds me so much of living in London that I want to pop over to Drummond Street for some Indian food.
There is nothing new in this trilogy. Zombies meet a bunch of Old West stereotypes in three short stories. Even though there is nothing new here, it is still a fun listen. Even though this trilogy doesn't provide a new take on the zombie folklore, this is still an entertaining listen. Listen to it for what it is and enjoy it.
I love this series for one very similar reason. This series takes eccentric secondary characters and repositions them as the primary characters of this apocalyptic novel. I always love the eccentric secondary characters; so, I was thrilled to find a series that stars them. While Brant narrative isn't as brilliant as Shaun of the Dead, it is still a fun and short listen. The narrator is passable but runs out of believable new voices toward the middle of the novel.
While this book doesn't really present anything new as far as apocalyptic books go, the main characters are rich and fully developed. In addition instead of including preppers as eccentric side characters, this book explores the nature of the survivalist or prepper mentality. Specifically, this book tries to incorporate how survivalists or preppers might fair in an apocalyptic USA. It is an interesting Naziesque twist. The narrator does a passable job.
Gin and the crew are back and adding members again. Pretty soon all of Southtown will be part of Gin's family. This is a hilarious and entertaining series. If you like female bad asses who have a very practical moral code and comfort food, you will like this series. I hope we see a Spider Cookbook someday. I also find it hilarious how often Gin thinks people have read her mind. If anyone assumed that much non-verbal communication in real life, s/he would be constantly frustrated by misunderstandings and criminally inefficient communication.
