Nora yes of course.
Hard to say, I can't get past the bad narration
With all the great books that Nora has written and has had performed, how did this happen?
Creative, Engaging, Fun
Geelo of course, everyone loves an old swamp witch.
To me, witch books are written to entertain, and this series is certainly entertaining me. I am enjoying the character development and the emotional tension that is building between certain characters. I'm no writer, but I am a listener, and I am thankful to have found this series. Wish there were more.
Yes, of course
I think it vitally important that a narrator listen to the books published prior to their performance, especially books in a series. It is annoying to have main character names pronounced differently in the fifth book of a series...and it could have been easily avoided with some research. All in all, the performance was dynamic, but the pronunciation of names really bugged me in this book of the series.
Its in the upper ten percent
The excitement of dark vs light
The birthday car
Typical Nora style of plot and movement. Very enjoyable
The narrator makes this book 'hard to listen to'. It sounds as if she is running the Boston Marathon while she narrates. She takes a breath two or three times in a sentence, adding commas and periods to the manuscript that surely are not there. And when is the last time you knew an adult to pronounce Library as "Lie Berry". It ruined the whole book for me and the story actually seems interesting. I just can't get through the reading.
The story line is good; the characters are interesting. It sounds as if the writing is done well too, if you can get past the narration.
Someone like C.J. Critt may bring it to life.
Unfortunately I have tried twice to listen and the narration is so distracting I keep switching off to books I've heard many times for peace of mind.
Give me my credit back....LOL
As Kathleen Duey introduces you to her characters in Skin Hunger, you can begin to feel as they do on their travels through this first part of her story. Sadima's magical abilities, yet uncovered, will surely keep our interest in the next two volumes as Kathleen brings the story to life, and thrills us with the magic we are all waiting for. I anxiously await the next book, and to see the magic in her words.
