I was disappointed when I first listened to this book and it was announced that it was from Audible Children. I am glad I continued to listen because it was a funny and entertaining listen. My husband hates when I read a book or listen to my IPod and I laugh out loud so I have to turn my laugh into a cough. While I was listening to this book he actually asked me if I was coming down with a cold! Also, after finishing I immediately downloaded the previous books in the series and enjoyed them as well. If you have a sense of humor this series will keep you entertained.
This has been one my favorite books since it was originally published in paperback. It remained on my bookshelves, never to be traded or given away and reread at least once every three years. It's not great literature but it is good fiction and entertainment. I didn't know it was on Audible until I took advantage of their latest website-wide sale and looked for several books I wanted and there it was! For some reason it speaks to me. I'm not a Jude Deveraux fan so I don't know how this compares to her other books, but I recommend this one for hours of good listening.
I don't like to regurgitate the plot, I'll just say I have all the Hollows books from the beginning and Kim's is a great plot master. The only thing I hate is waiting for the next book, (oh my gosh #13), and as all good things, someday it has to end. But whenever that day comes, I will be sad. Please if you are new to the series do yourself a favor and start at the beginning. There are so many characters that came before who are referred to and you need to know what the background was. You will not be sorry.
I always listen to my books that I enjoy over and over again. I always read the In Death Series by Jd Robb over and over. This series by Ms.Harris has always been one of my favorites too. To see Sookie grow into an aware young and have several relationships with different sups,some are like able some not so like able is what makes the WHOLE series come together. The books are not meant to stand alone they are bricks in the wall of a 16 book castle that we have been give to enjoy how ever we choose. They do make a little more sense if you read them in order.
Always Sookie and her friends and relatives.
Great narrative and story and there seems to be talk of other books soon . These books are great for us who actually outgrew our comic books and graduated to books by way of audible books. Maybe a little More Main line to use an IPod. I will keep track of this author, she is promising.
I really enjoyed this audible book. Are there any more from the author in this series?
If you are into dark otherworld audio books, this one is for you. Unfortunately, I am not a fan. The narrator was great but the story was dark, dark, dark.
To be honest I downloaded this book because it was from the You Pick sale, and I had never read anything by the author. I will be looking for future books. Great book, very enjoyable for all the reasons you download books. I didn't want to stop listening.
I took a chance on this audiobook and loved the writing and the characterization by the narrator. When I listen to an audible.com book the narrator can make or break the experience. After I listened to this book by Chris Knopf I downloaded the rest of the available books. The books and narration by those books were also great. I would recommend listening to them in date order of publication. The development of the characters flow into the next book. If you like unusual mysteries you will love this series by Chris Knopf.
I only rated this book 3 stars because the author narrated it. Most authors do not have the talent to transfer their written work into an enjoyable listening product. It was hard to discern who was "speaking" because the narrator's inflection never changed. I don't know how they pay the narrator, but it makes a difference to the listeners. Bad reviews because of bad narrations means fewer people will purchase your audible book.
