  • Lolita

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 27 mins)

    Savagely funny and hauntingly sad, Lolita is Nabokov's most famous and controversial novel. It is the story of tortured college professor Humbert Humbert and his dangerous obsession with honey-skinned schoolgirl Dolores Haze.

    Jefferson says: "Disturbingly Wonderful"
    "Fascinating"
    Overall

    A very interesting storyline and well worth a listen. I did enjoy it and I adore Jeremy Irons being the narrator BUT I found he was talking a bit to fast for my liking so I felt I missed some bits and had to rewind and listen closely.

    Still I would recommend it

    They were only supposed to have a professional relationship, but FBI agent Kyle McKenzie has been fantasizing about his sexy partner, Cadence Hollow, from the moment they first met. It takes the darkest case of their careers to finally bring their hidden desire bubbling to the surface. Once they’re in each other’s arms, though, they swear that nothing short of death will part them.

    If you could sum up Scream for Me in three words, what would they be?

    Average but entertaining


    Would you recommend Scream for Me to your friends? Why or why not?

    No as while the story was interesting the constand use of SOB was very very annoying. There are far more things you can call somebody then son of a bitch and it was annoying that it semed to be everyone in the books favorite insult.I also didnt like the leading man, just a personal dislike nothing really glaringly obvious for me to dislike


    What about Emily Beresford’s performance did you like?

    Good performance

    Brothers Gavin, Slade, and Dex fall hard for Gavin's new secretary, beautiful Hannah Craig. The oil executives know they must give her time to get to know them before she can choose one...who will seduce the virgin and keep her for his own. But when a dangerous predator begins stalking the small-town beauty, they work together to protect her, abducting Hannah and spiriting her to an isolated hideaway. Once alone with her, none of them can contain their burning desire.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Their Virgin Captive?

    The narrator, story or lack thereof. I was hoping for something darkly raunchy and it didn't offer any of it


    What was most disappointing about Lexi Blake and Shayla Black ’s story?

    Lack of flow, it just didn't flow smoothly and didn't engage your senses at all. I couldn't finish it


    What didn’t you like about Serena Daniels’s performance?

    Not enough emotion, passion etc and for essentially a male driven book the mens voices from her just didn't do it for me


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

    Nope I didn't even make it halfway through, just couldn't concentrate on it as it had nothing to hold my interest

    Nikolai Wroth, once a ruthless human warlord in the 1700s and now a general in the rebel vampire army, needs to find his bride, the one woman who can render him truly alive. As a turned human, he doesn’t enjoy a heartbeat or breathing and is consequently weaker than fully blooded vampires. He wants his bride for the power she will bring him and can hardly believe it when his heart beats for Myst the Coveted, a mad, fey, mythological creature. Myst is known throughout the world as the most beautiful Valkyrie, part chillingly fierce warrior, part beguiling seductress....

    Where does The Warlord Wants Forever rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very high as I adore all of Kresley Coles books but really would have preffered if Rpobert Petkoff had narrated this one as well


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Warlord Wants Forever?

    Hmmmm to many good bits to chose!


    Have you listened to any of Hagan Verret and Simone Fomhar ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    All of Kresleys books make you laugh, moan and sometimes cry.


    Any additional comments?

    Kresleys books hold the right amount of passion, humour and action for my liking. I love the fantasy world she has created in these books and the way they tye together so well. Brilliant books and I can't wait for more!

    Sadie Hutchins loves her job at the Kentucky Tourism Commission. Not only could her co-workers double as the cast of Parks and Recreation, but she loves finding the unusual sites, hidden gems, and just-plain-odd tourist attractions of her home state. She’s a shoo-in for the director’s job when her boss retires at the end of the year…until hotshot Josh Vaughn shows up to challenge her for the position. Josh is all sophisticated polish while Sadie’s country comfort, and the two have very different ideas of what makes a good campaign.

    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    I adore her performance, her tone for the sarcasm etc makes it enjoyable to listen to


    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to all of Molly Harpers books on Audible and this one is the only one I just couldn't get into. I love all her others.

    A storm struck on the night Laura Shane was born, and there was a strangeness about the weather that people would remember for years. But even more mysterious was the blond-haired stranger who appeared out of nowhere - the man who saved Laura from a fatal delivery. Years later - after another bolt of lightning - the stranger returned.

    Barry says: "One of Koontz' best, entirely enjoyable."
    "loved it"
    Overall

    A great book, one of those ones you just do not want to turn off!! Sad to see it end I was enjoying it so much :)

    Brittany Callaghan thinks she's dreaming when a blond, nearly seven-feet-tall Nordic god shows up on her doorstep in her tiny California town. He claims to be a barbarian warrior in need of her help. Though a stunning, statuesque beauty herself, intelligent and independent Brittany has struggled hard to earn respect in a man's world. She is taken aback when Dalden, a spectacular Viking who is a long way from home, needs her help - and is willing to pay for it.

    Anneliese says: "Not the beginning of the trio"
    "dissappointed"
    Overall

    Well I wish I had listened to the reviews. Not in the slightest what I was expecting. I found the plot rather boring and the main girl half the time acting tough and half the time acting like a southern belle who will faint at the drop of a hat :(
    Narration was good EXCEPT for our main man which yes she very very much makes him sound like a robot.

    Sadly I wish I hadn't wasted the money buying this one or the time listening to it
