Hearing stories from the bad-guys also spotting characters from other books in the stories.
When Moran met all three Moriarty brothers, all named James or also the interactions with Irene Adler. I think my favorite story in this book is The Adventure of the Six Maledictions.
It's a toss-up between Moran or Moriarty. Irene Adler was well done though.
I wouldn't call this one a "moving" type book, funny yes.
It's a fun and quick listen. I can't decide how I feel about the ending and if I want a sequel written.
This one is definitely one of my favorites- Flavia is a wonderfully entertaining character and Jayne Entwistle was a perfect narrator for the story.
I loved how Flavia would bring Chemistry into situations that doesn't usually make a person think of chemical reactions or analysis. The situations or behavior that reminded the listener that Flavia was in fact an 11 year old girl were also endearing.
She was able to maintain a convincing tone of an 11year old girl- like the right amount of annoyance in her voice at being treated as a little girl etc.
I did want to keep listening to this book constantly and usually was able to find excuses to listen to it a lot but sadly not in one sitting.
History, craziness, fascinating
I would probably compare them to Tony Horwitz's other books as I find all of them to be interesting reads on history.
You could listen to the things John Brown said, instead of reading it- I think it helped to understand/picture the events.
I was shocked by the sheer stubborn craziness of John Brown and he willingness to lead his sons to take place in violent raids. I hadn't ever realized how bloody and violent John Brown was, I was definitely surprised by the constant use of violence and his virtual abandonment of his family.
I didn't know much about John Brown, so learning about his childhood, role in Bleeding Kansas, his planning and eventual follow through of the raid on Harper's Ferry was fascinating and I would encourage anyone who doesn't know much beyond the basic facts to listen to this book.
I liked the new take on the Nativity story although it did get very gory at times, which is not really my thing, so I would've been happy to skip most of the fight scenes with all the blood spurting details.
I liked how everything was interconnected and wrapped itself up without leaving loose ends.
I enjoyed his narration, he did a great job on Herod's voice.
I might; but as it would most likely be an action movie with bloody battle scenes I would probably wait for the DVD to be available.
I enjoyed Abraham Lincoln Vampire Slayer more, but this was still a decent listen, I'll keep an eye out for any more books he writes.
The writing got very repetitive, someone was always about to rip someone's face off or tear their guts out along with various other phrases that were used over and over again.
I think I was hoping for a bit more historical fact and less exaggeration, most of these stories would've been plenty impressive without the over top descriptions.
I doubt I would've finished reading the book- the narrator was very good.
After reading it I found out he had a blog where he does Badasses of the week- I think one short post a week would be easier to handle as the repetitive phrasing wouldn't be so obvious.
Yes I would- it was fun to see her discover herself and start to enjoy life!
I think when Miss Pettigrew first met Miss Lafosse and was exposed to her world. I also enjoyed that Miss Pettigrew was able to fix so many of the women's problems
I loved the scene where Miss Pettigrew was given a make-over.
The ending- I was so happy for Miss Pettigrew
Definitely a great listen, the reader was wonderful!
I really enjoyed Anne Hathaway's narration- she did a great job with all the different voices.
Her varied voices- I was impressed at how well she did them!
I had read this book a while ago and it was enjoyable to listen to it and hear the story again!
It's definitely one of my favorites- the story is good and the characters make you laugh!
Oberon was my favorite character and the narrator did a great job with his voice, he spoke and acted just how I would expect a dog to (if they could communicate in our heads of course...)
I really loved the first book and was worried that I'd be disappointed with the second but I wasn't.
I liked the title of the book, so I had to read the summary. Once I did I knew it would be a good one. I never had had any thought or really curiosity about how the field of toxicology came about so this book was a great introduction to it as a plus I learned things about prohibition as well!
