This was the first book of this series that I read and by far my favorite. I have the paper back which is marked for the 'best parts.' Jake and Emma make you want them to succeed. I found this story one of my favorites and it is why I bought the earlier books and have continued to buy the books as they have been published. Christine Feehan is a terrific story teller and the Leopard People is one of her best series.
Jake is richer than most and ruthless as are most of the leopards in these books. I like the story told here about Jake and Emma and their experiences. If you like strong men not afraid to be strong, these books are for you. There is no abusiveness but there is some manipulation on Jake's part and there is lots of sex.
Jeffrey Cummings is a good narrator and has a strong voice which is needed for the storyline.
Probably just because I like the narrator and I like Eve and Roark. But, the story of this one seemed off to me. The killer talked more than usual to self and I didn't like the way the killer acted. I still like the series but this one just hit me wrong.
Yes. I didn't figure out who the killer was but as the story progressed, it just kept unraveling until I began to not care since I was sure Eve would figure it out. It didn't have as much mystery as earlier books. Still good but everyone seemed harder.
When Eve came home and punched out the new droid. It's always fun to hear the exchange between Eve and Roark....no matter what they are doing. Take care of my cop is one of my favorite lines.
Only reaction I had was that I wasn't sure I liked it. Hard to explain why it hit me that way.
The narrator was good and made the characters interesting. I don't guess I care for fantasy like this. I bought it because of Diana and her son but it isn't a story type that I like.
No. I think most of my friends would not like it.
I liked the sorcerer but really none of the characters grabbed me. I found that it didn't really matter to me what happened to any of them. I was glad to see the dragon didn't die.
Nothing extremely good or bad. I'll try another book by Sam Sykes.
It was good but I was happy for it to end. I got tired of Odd Thomas and his attitudes. That is a compliment to Dean Koontz who embued him with that strong moral streak.
When Odd came to grips with his purpose and realized he was moving down a path to his destiny.
Yes. I liked the narrator very much. He gave the correct voice to Odd and the other characters.
Yes. I almost did finish it in one day but had to stop until the next day. I find this of all books written by Koontz. He grabs the reader with his first line and doesn't let go.
I loved the quirky characters. Every word written was perfect for the situation. How abortion and the pros and cons can be presented without judgment just made it better. Homer is conflicted but Dr. Larch finds a way to make him of use.
I'm not a book reviewer but this book has everything, humor, sadness, death but even turning that into good. His characters have a strength not found easily. It reminds me of Ken Follett Century Trilogy and Wuthering Heights. Irving is a gifted writer.
This was my first book by Grover Gardner and I liked him. Wish he was narrating all of Irving's books.
Yes, it had me laughing out loud at times like when Wally socks Homer for his continued use of saying "right" to everything. This book has it all, love of a parent, a child, the nurses care of the orphans, the responsibility of different sets of rules being applied at different times. It is very complicated but so are the issues discussed. You hope all along that Homer does what is right for all,and ultimately he does.
This is a book that should be required reading by every high school student. A way to,make us think about huge issues but in a rational way. Someone must be available to help women.
The narrator depicts Max with perfect humor. When things get back for St. Mary's, they just put on the tea pot and discuss it all. No task is too daunting, not even blood on the stones.
Dr. Who and other time travel stories are all similar but this series is special because of the history aspect, and Max and her historians. She brings you into her world with gusto.
No one specific. They are all good in their way and each transport is unique and different.
And the world went white---and then they land somewhere else.
Yes, yes, and yes. I love this series. Get book 1 and start the mad adventure of Max, Peterson, Leon and the other crazy historians at St. Mary's. You have to read it to know. Every story is a different adventure. The pod is their mode of transport like Dr. Who uses a phone booth.
Dr. Who comes to mind with the spinning phone booth winding up somewhere else. At least the pods are programmed for their destination.
Not a particular one but I do like the History Muse who shows up to tell Max to get on with her next special tour.
And the world goes white....just before you land somewhere else.
These books are exceptionally good. They are light with minimal sex scenes for those who prefer fantasy, and you don't really miss them. Max and Leon do 'get together' but you don't have to suffer through it with them. These are just good fun books for those who can suspend reality and enjoy fantasy.
It was the third book in this fabulous series of Max and the historians going back in time to see things confirmed or to see things that didn't happen as history states. The characters are crazy and fun. You must suspend your belief in fixed reality and just go with the flow. Max and Leon are terrific. The entire St. Mary's staff is wonderful. I will listen to this series again and again.
These are as good as Patricia Briggs Mercy Thompson series or any of Laura Vosika's time traveling Scot. It is just a fun read and Jodi Taylor is a hoot to have come up with this.
I've listened to the other books in this series and enjoy her portrayal of the characters. I like an English accent and Ms. Ramm does an excellent job.
I chuckled in a few places but her descriptions of the pod when they enter and the return to St. Mary's are always funny. It is just a feel good book.
Can't wait for the next book in the series.
I rank it in the top 20. I love this series by Christine Feehan. I bought them in paperback first and then got them in audio. This story is about Rachael who is escaping from her family into the rain forest. She doesn't know she is a leopard. The story unfolds when she meets Rio and then....the lust begins. The characters cross over from early books and continue into the later books of which there are now six. I have them all.
When Rachael first realizes that Rio is leopard and then she realizes that she is one as well. It is a good story and like the other paranormal love stories. Feehan makes you want more.
I like all of her narrations. She is a very talented narrator.
Yes. I've listened to it at least twice and will listen more. I like the stories and the characters and the sexy men who become leopard. Makes my heart go pitter patter.
Trust your feelings. They love each other and must get through some bad times to know that they do love each other enough to address their secrets together.
This is probably like a lot of books about love and obsession and sex but none come to mind. I found the issues that Alayne and Hudson address refreshing in that they know they have problems, he knows he screwed up, and she knows he screwed up, but they love each other and will find a way to be together.
She makes the characters live in the listener's mind. Her ability to convey the pain and lust they feel is not possible when read in print.
A couple of places I wanted to throw it across the room but since I was listening on my iPad I resisted. It was a good book.
I liked the way Alayne and Hudson understood each other's weaknesses and still were able to love each other. The way they met and then the way they overcame the flaws in their characters.
I liked the way that Hudson let Alayne knew his love was for her. He had never had a woman in his penthouse but he asked her to move in. I liked the way the book started out and the way their love for each other deepened. You could see them both grow more secure.
Alayne was my favorite. Even though she was damaged, she was aware of her limits and sought out her therapist when she felt herself spinning out of control. She was much stronger than she believed and this became more revealed as the story continues. This is the second book in the series of three but may be my favorite.
Yes. I always want to listed to a book in one sitting. I like the way the characters get into your psyche and make you want to learn more about them.
I like Alayne and Hudson and know anyone who likes romance and flawed characters who still manage to stay together with like these books. There are explicit sex scenes so some who prefer plain themes may not enjoy.
