Talented, Kind, Giving
Jim of course. It was fascinating to find out the details of his life and how his shows, movies, and characters were thought up and then evolved. He was kind and gentle almost to a fault, thus endearing him to everyone close to him. My children grew up with Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock, Dark Crystal, The Labyrinth, Ninja Turtles, The Muppets, etc. I do agree with Roald Dahl's opinion of Henson's version of The Witches Movie, I hate it! I was sad that the author did not go into detail about Sesame Street. Henson adored his children, throughout the book stories were interlaced with his love for them. That alone elevated my opinion of this gentle giant.
I did enjoy his performance, however he never did get any of the voices right which was a slight distraction.
Heavens no, it was too long.
I was saddened that he was too stubborn to seek medical help when he became it. He could still be with us!
I really enjoy the series but I don't know if I can listen to another book!
These books are light-heated fun. Still fighting the bad guys: Idris, Aurie, etc. However the book takes a serious twist at the end. Katie is headed back home to Texas and leaving Owen to fight the bad guys. Even Marsha gets caught up in the world of magic.
Competition in the spell business is the theme of this book. Idris , etc.. are starting up a spell store, but exactly where do they plan to go with the store and the advertizing is bold. In the "shoot out" Owen makes a bad choice to save Katie instead of catch Idris. So Katie packs her bags, what will happen in Texas?
Oh my goodness, it shows how good the story is because I keep listening even though the narration is miserable to listen to. All of the character voices are nice except Katies. Yikes, it is grating.
This is a story of mysteries, mishaps, and laughs. Katie comes through with shining colors through it all.
Miscommunication/lack of communication
A company traitor, who is it?
Mayhem and distrust between the employees
Yippy, she finally ends up with the right guy!
Cons: Narrator! However, I will continue on with the series.
Pros: A very cute story ! ! !
Very fun characters
Clean story! Sans swearing and sex.
Katie has lived in NY for a year and never stops marveling at the unusual people that she sees. Granted, NY is unique, but she has the rare ability to see through the "glamor" of the fairies, gargoyles, etc. She is recruited to work for MSI, Inc. (Magic, Spells, and Illusions) and the fun begins. I will be listening to the series and will probably listen to this book again in the future.
Cons: Too many descriptive romantic encounters.
Pros: Minimal swearing
Iris serves the Vampire Communities needs by delivering their orders during the day when when they are sleeping. She is the guardian for her younger sister, Gigi. They have a loving relationship. Cal (vampire) ends up in their home and the sexual exploits start and the topic is even discussed by Gigi.
There are many other enjoyable vampire/werewolf series that do not rely so heavily on sexual interplay.
Yes! I love WWII books of all types. This book leaves me almost speechless. I cannot imagine reading this book, the narrators are spectacular; the pauses, the sighs, etc., makes this book stand out. In my opinion, this is an amazing book that ranks up there with any classic book.
I have never read a book like this. Surprising details gradually are revealed, her writing style touched my soul. I intend to read her "Rose under Fire."
I think that their narration "made" this book and touched me so deeply.
This is one of those books that I would not like to be made into a movie. This audible version is perfection that I do not want ruined. Books are always better than the movie.
I will remember this book for the rest of my life. It shines bright. The characters are developed richly. Part 1 is the view of Julie (a spy) and Part 2 is Maddy's (a pilot) view. Maddy, Julie and then Julie's brother Jamie. The book ends perfectly. I also loved that the author adds her comments at the end discussing her research for the book.
This was a fun book to listen to! I am always happy when there is not a lot of swearing/graphic romance. The interplay between all of the family members was great with some surprises. For a short book, there was a lot of story.
A lot of fun to listen too! The story is interesting from beginning to end. Starting as an orphan then she leaves her "street friends" to become a young assistant on a pirate hunting ship. The entire book focuses on the interplay between young friendships. The end did not disappoint me, I am anxious to listen to Jacky's next adventures.
The narrator was amazing! The cockney accent was sometimes hard to catch but that made it even more interesting to listen to.
It is so hard to put into words the horrors that were endured! I have read many books on this subject, my personal favorite is "The Hiding Place." However, I am so glad that I listened to this book. An other view of the atrocities that were committed. My heart ache and inability to comprehend the life in a concentration camp.
The set-up of the story worried me, I felt that it was going to be written for YA. However, the last half was very enjoyable. Alex is up against various enemies and pulls it out & saves the day, yada, yada, yada. Some are comparing it to Desden, certainly the dry sense of humor is there.But I am one of those who love both Dresden and Codex Alera and hold them up as the standard. I really liked Luna and hope that she continues to be part of the seriesl
I know, I know . . . they are all the same, but I still enjoy them. I always like when Clive shows up in each book. A lot of action as always. I love the banter between the Fargo's.
