It would have been nice if anything ever happened.
Not until he learns that the correct pronunciations of breeches is "britches". He uses similar simplistic pronunciations of waistcoat and victuals. If you're going to narrate a period novel, please send 10 minutes with the dictionary first.
The premise is an interesting one and some of the minor characters are quite interesting.
I very much disliked slogging through nearly 100 chapters of a derivative "amnesia" thriller only to have a new character--a child, no less!-- appear around Chapter 99 to explain all the goings-on to the adults. Isn't the point of this sort of book for the protagonists to figure it out for themselves?
Not this genre but certainly this author.
I love Scott Brick so I wouldn't change anything. I did wonder how he kept from laughing at some of the more ridiculous moments though.
The last interaction between the sisters which is completely unbelievable.
This book is basically a dressed up Harlequin romance. A more developed plot whose resolution isn't obvious halfway through would suit me better.
Since this is a recent effort, not an early work, no.
Ms. Kellgren's narration was superb and the accents were so lovely I can't pick a favorite.
Other than rolling my eyes really hard several times, no.
Learning to love Edward despite his quirks and watching him grow.
This one is one of a kind.
Edward, of course. :-)
The letter Edward receives.
This is a hidden gem. I wish I could read it again for the first time.
I've listened to Luke Daniels many times and always enjoyed him but there's not much he can do with cardboard, unlikable characters and a ridiculous plot.
He did his best with what there was to work with.
Irritation. This book was published in 2012 but we are supposed to believe that the general public still perceives tattooed people as one step up from carnie workers. Mike and Deb are one-sided and unlikable. The reactions of the girls' parents are primarily implausible.
Audible should have labeled this as paranormal fiction. The current summary along with the fiction categorization are misleading.
The Audible blurb does not make it clear that this book is about a group of women who take cold-blooded, graphic revenge on men. Apparently tracking down rapists, drugging them and castrating them is empowering and even light-hearted. In addition, the author couldn't be bothered to do a 3 minute Google search on anything. Belgian Malinois dogs do not weigh 110 pounds unless they're 35 pounds or more overweight. Even a really good make-up artist cannot make Caucasian and African-American women up well enough to pass as Chinese IN China. "Biker dive bars" rarely serve "luscious steaks, plump baked potatoes and delicious salads". The whole book is completely implausible and often laughable, not in a good way.
No way. No possible way.
Maybe. Her accents were over the top and seemed to come and go. There are many better narrators.
All of them.
Crais--no. I only finished this one to see how bad it would get.
MacLeod Andrews--yes. He did a fine job, the material wasn't his fault.
Treated his reader as an intelligent adult. I don't need passages like "Scott James had a message on his answering machine from Jana Crowley (I can't recall the character's acutal name). "Hi, Scott, this is Jana Crowley." Really, Mr. Crais? Also, take it from this actual dog trainer, the training scenes and the dog's reactions were ludicrous.
It was short.
