I have always wondered why people think Stephen King only writes horror, this shows he has the ability to draw you into a very compelling story and keep you there-I have yet to read one of his books that don't suck you in. Ms Sternahagen pulls off the narration, and makes you visualize Delores the way King wrote her. Some books have terrific potential as an audio book but are read by someone you can't listen to or believe in, this combination is perfect.
I'm not sure as I didnt read the print version, but a good narrator really makes a good book great.
I cant think of any as it was such a great concept. I think laughter is important and this book really made me laugh. The whole concept of God, Christ, Buddah, Krishna, etc. all wrapped up neatly, well not so neat in some cases, but in a way that wasnt putting any on the moral high ground and putting others down as a lesser Faith.
This narrator was great, each character was easily discernable and each had their own humor. I dont know how this narrator wasnt laughing the whole time
Obviously, Biff. Long suffering and well loved by everyone but his Mother.
Dont judge it as sacrelgious, just enjoy it. God must have a sense of humor, look around us.
I didnt like the Twilight series and thought this would be funnier because I really liked the Zombies of Lake Woebegotten. It was ok, but maybe too close to the Twilight series, gag. The author is a good writer, maybe too good because I really hated the Bonnie character.
I had it figured out before the end
None really, I think the author was too good as I really hated Bonnie and everything to do with her.
No, unless Edwin turns on Bonnie and kills her in a fit of rage because he realizes he has been played by a sociopath
I would read others by this author
I cant say I enjoyed or even liked this story. While it may be enjoyed by some, it wasnt my cup of tea and the narrators voice wasnt what I would have chosen..
I dont care for his voice as a narrator
The fact that it was free was icing on the cake, so far any Molly Harper book I have listened to has been fantastic, Amanda Ronconi is the perfect narrator for Harpers wit.
Just the whole continuation of the Iris Scanlon story and further development of the characters.
She has the timing needed to make Harpers dry wit come to fruition. I'm not sure how she does it, but she must laugh her backside off when she completes some of the line and gets to a stopping point.
When G.G. realizes how much Iris and Cal really love her and how to be thankful instead of resentful for their overprotective ways.
Audible, Thank you so much for this freebee. I know it must have cost quite a bit to write, produce and make this available. Very few successful writers and narrators would have agreed to this, whether or not they were reembursed.
Some readers appeared to have not liked the last three or four book. i I dont agree. I found the entire series great fun. I do admit that I bought the first one as a sale book but I was hooked then. I thoroughly enjoy Ms Harris's books and Ms Parker brings Sookie to life! Thank you both for many hours of mystery and romance.
Mark Tufo is a master of sarcasm and dry wit. How he comes up with his statements are beyond me, but they are so funny, people look at me at the gym when I laugh out loud at his comments. Sean Runnette is a great reader, I can actually picture the characters by their "voices". His range and ability is fantastic.
I love books that run in series, ie. Sookie Stackhouse, Nice Girls Don's,.., etc, but this author writes books that are read in 5 hours and charges more than any other series. This is the reason I stopped listening to her books. She hasn't got near the talent of Charlaine Harris or Molly Harper. I rated the performance high because I like the narrator, and I gae the story and overall 2 because, the story line is good escapism, but, I don't like being taken advantage of or having the characters held hostage by the author.
Many times series books get weaker as the story goes on, if the author hasn't thought it all out and figured out where its going, not so with this series. Once again, the author and narrator team takes the stories to another level. There is nothing worse than having a good story ruined by having it read by a sub-par narrator.
This book is ok, not as good as Molly Harper or Charlaine Harris's books, but a good book.
This series is fun to listen to, not as fun for me as Molly Harper where wolves or vampires or Charlaine Harris's Sookie series, but fun. I just really like the characters name Abby Normal, it reminds me of Young Frankenstein. The other characters have more normal names and the authors other characters interact well. The narrator does a good job, whic for audio books if very important.
