This is the first book I read from Robert Sawyer and definitely not my last. The author explores a topic most are afraid to write about. He does an excellent job showing both sides of the coin. Religious/moral beliefs and science blend well in this thought provoking book.
Georgie's task for the Queen this time takes a decidedly spooky turn and prim, proper, stable Georgie faces danger with grace and aplomb. I absolutely love how she handles difficult situations. Congrats to Rhys Bowen for creating such an exciting series with highly likeable characters. The narrator does an EXCELLENT job with all the voices and I'm so happy I bought all six books on sale. I will definitely buy more from this author. Quite enjoyable!
Well written with many laugh out loud moments. Kept me entertained throughout. Definitely worth a second, third, and fourth listen if you ask me!
I just love listening to Kellgren's voice. I have listened to her in Robin Hobb's books and thoroughly enjoyed those performances too.
In the Royal Spyness series, she seems a perfect fit for Georgie. She has so many accents that make each character literally come alive. Much better than just reading words on a page. She is consistent and does not make any mistakes in pronunciation. What a true professional!
Laughed out loud in many instances (which got my husband wondering what was so funny about doing laundry).
I would love to hear more from this author. I am on the 4th book already and have become thoroughly engrossed in this series.
These books are fantastic and the Narrator is really fantastic. There are quite a few laugh out loud moments. Quite enjoyable series...can't wait for the next in the series.
If they were recorded in the same studio I may not. There was a hissing in the background on this audio recording. I absolutely loved the Narrator and the book I already knew to be fabulous, but listening with a background noise was killing me. It was made worse by the editing cuts which had no background noise so they were made extremely noticeable.
His narration was great, he is very talented man with voices and his singing perfect. Loved all his voices.
Yes, but I'm leery of anything Hollywood puts out lately since they always add sex scenes etc.
Oh yes. Evie totally rocks!
The main character Evie. She is intelligent, quick on her feet, and looks "bleeping" awsome in pink!
Evie of course! Her vampire voices were hilarious though. Excellent reading overall.
Evie finding out she has been deceived by the people she loves.
Fast paced book written for teens, but enjoyable for all "bleeping" ages!
This book was my first Whispersync purchase (Audible/Kindle combo) and I was highly disappointed. While I listened to the audio version I read along in the Kindle version. To my amazement, the Kindle and Audible books did not match! There were many places I had to rewind the audio quite a few times in order to find the place in the Kindle book. Words replaced with different words (same meaning), sentences switched around, sentences at the end of the paragraph instead of at the beginning, spelling of words, etc. There was even a spot where one version said "seven" and the other "six" referring to a time period (this was in the last chapter and by that time I had gone completely crazy trying to follow along). I'd love to know which version is the real Unabridged version??? I got the impression that the publisher used Microsoft Word with the auto-correct options set to default (I call it dummy defaults) and when spell-checking the document simply did not pay attention to the grammar check moving sentences and words around, etc.
Suffice it to say I will be looking to see if this problem pops up in my other Whispersync purchases or if it was particular to this book. Not so sure I like the idea of two Unabridged versions of an author's work not being exactly the same.... Other than those highly irritating irregularities, I enjoyed the book. It was my first experience with this author and I will not hesitate to buy more of his work in the future.
I love this series! The narrator really makes these books come alive. Looking forward to the next book.
This series really has me hooked. I simply cannot wait for the next book to come out on Audible. The narrator is superb and really brings Charley and all the characters in the book. Looking forward to more from this author.
This book was my introduction to this author and I will definitely listen to the rest of the series. The narrarator was fantastic and since I've always loved archaeology this book was perfect for me.
In the beginning this book seemed like a Harlequin romance to me, but I stuck with it no matter what and was happy I did. The last part got me interested enough to get the next book in this series.
