Professional Madwoman, lulled to an acceptable level of social behavior only by the constant, continual, susurrants of the spoken word piped in my ears through the magic of small, discrete, wireless headphones. OK, maybe I do sometimes laugh in inappropriate situations, startle an unwitting audience by gasping at nothing, and elict stares when I drop expletives in a silent void, it's all good.

  • Shiver

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 10 mins)
    • By Karen Robards
    • Narrated By Shannon McManus
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    If driving a piece-of-crap tow truck through the seediest part of town with a Smith & Wesson beside her means putting a roof over her son’s head, then Samantha Jones is going to be the best damn repo woman on the books. The streetwalkers, the drug pushers, the bands of looking-for-trouble punks haunting the mean streets at midnight don’t intimidate her. These are her people. The guy she finds bound and bloodied in the trunk of her latest conquest, a flashy new BMW, is a different breed entirely.

    Kimberly says: "Gave Me Shivers!"
    "Perfect if you like weak, gratutous sex & no plot"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone looking for a syrupy romance with an impossibly heroic manly man, and can overlook a plot with more holes than baby swiss, might enjoy this book. The ratio of romance to actual story is about four to one. Someone who has difficulty following something more complicated than P.D.Eastman, might find this book enjoyable.

    What was most disappointing about Karen Robards’s story?

    I lost interst in the story after I got bored by poorly written, relentless sex, sex, sex!

    What didn’t you like about Shannon McManus’s performance?

    Shannon did not perform, she read.

    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    This book was BORING!

    Any additional comments?

    What a diapointment because the free first chapters did not indicate it was full of mindless drivel.

  • The Sorcery Code: Volume 1: A Fantasy Novel of Magic, Romance, Danger, and Intrigue

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 32 mins)
    • By Dima Zales, Anna Zaires
    • Narrated By Emily Durante
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Once a respected member of the Sorcerer Council and now an outcast, Blaise has spent the last year of his life working on a special magical object. The goal is to allow anyone to do magic, not just the sorcerer elite. The outcome of his quest is unlike anything he could've ever imagined - because, instead of an object, he creates Her.

    Ira says: "I'm Looking For Volume 2 Already"
    "Boring, juvenile, predictable!"

    Don't waste your money, I hate to even say juvenile because I don't think juveniles would like it either.

  • Odd Interlude: A Special Odd Thomas Adventure

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 34 mins)
    • By Dean Koontz
    • Narrated By David Aaron Baker
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Nestled on a lonely stretch along the Pacific coast, quaint roadside outpost Harmony Corner offers everything a weary traveler needs - a cozy diner, a handy service station, a cluster of motel rooms...and the Harmony family homestead presiding over it all. But when Odd Thomas and company stop to spend the night, they discover that there’s more to this secluded haven than meets the eye - and that between life and death, there is something more frightening than either.

    Suzn F says: "Oddy Returns"
    "I love Oddy"

    Just when I think I might have gotten enough Oddness, Koontz changes the formula enough to pull me back in and David Aaron Baker IS Odd Thomas.
    I like reading an Odd Thomas book when I am in the mood for light, creepy, fun.

  • Paris Immortal: A Vampire Tale

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 44 mins)
    • By Sherry Roit
    • Narrated By Jay Benedict

    When Trey meets his new legal clients, the stunning Michel and his equally striking partner Gabriel, he can't believe his luck. The rumour in the office is that the pair can be difficult at times; they have a staggering number of assets to manage and are elusive during the daytime hours. Trey settles into his new Parisian home, making friends and meeting romantic interests, but none so fascinating as Michel and Gabriel.

    Amazon Customer says: "10 hours lost - unless you use superspeed."
    "I should have read reviews before purchasing."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The fact that I unknowingly bought a book featuring gay sex was not a negative, the fact that it was spoofishly junior high school girly was a total negative. A good looking, professional man working in Paris is NOT ALLOWED to be silly, gushing and girly about his love interest! I learned way too much about everyone's wardrobes than who they were. The book "How I Paid for College: a Novel of Sex,Theft, Friendship, and Musical Theater" by Mark Acito is a fabulous example of laugh out loud, five star work featuring gay issues. The Julliard scene is a classic!
    The title "Paris Immortal" was nice.

    What didn’t you like about Jay Benedict’s performance?

    Sometimes I have to wonder if publishers have any standards when stuff like this is put to paper!

    What character would you cut from Paris Immortal?

    There was a 12 year old girl with the voice of a man reading this book!

    Any additional comments?

    From now on, I WILL read the reviews, I WILL read the reviews, I Will read the reviews!
