    "Loved the book, hated the narrator!!"
    What made the experience of listening to In Deep Voodoo the most enjoyable?

    I liked the story. However, if I didn't have trouble seeing, I would've stopped listening because of the narrator!! She is horrible, I mean who on earth actually talks that way?? She has weird pronunciation of words, that started to really drive me crazy!! (especially the word "garage" she prounances it "gaa-raage".) Also, she is terrible with her rendition of the character's voices!! She actually took away from the humor that the author intended.Stephanie Bond is a great author, however, this narrator hurt her book! I hope she doesn't use her in the future!!


    What aspect of Maureen Jones’s performance would you have changed?

    EVERYTHING!!! Especially the way she prounances certain words, (especially garage! omg! I wanted to slap her & tell her to speak right!!)Also, she does a terrible job with the character's voices! Book would've been so much better with a different narrator!!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out loud in few places, was on the edge of my seat, & could barely stop listening because I enjoyed the story so much! I actually almost stopped listening because of the narrator, but couldn't because I wanted to finish the book!!


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to book two in this series, as well as many of the author's other books!

    "A bad narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to In Deep Voodoo the most enjoyable?

    Nothing really. For reasons beyond me they hired a woman with a thick Canadian accent to read this book that is supposed to take place in Cajun country.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Stephanie Bond? Why or why not?

    Yes if they get a different narrator or the story takes place in Canada.


    What didn’t you like about Maureen Jones’s performance?

    Her accent and when the narrator did the voice of Penny's young assistant she made her sound like a 40 year old truck stop waitress from Toronto who smokes a pack a day.


    Who was the most memorable character of In Deep Voodoo and why?

    Penny, she did fulfil the role of heroine but she could be painfully stupid at times. I know that was done to drive the plot along but it got a little silly at times. But overall a cute fun story.


    Any additional comments?

    Nope

    Story
    "Too long and too ridiculous."

    First of all, the word "Humorous" in the title is a bit of a stretch. There are obvious parts that were trying to inject humor, but it just came off feeling uncomfortable and ridiculous -slap-stick events that are neither funny, nor necessary.

    Second of all, the narrator is not great. The main male character is supposed to have a Creole accent, and instead it's just a gruff southern-ish accent. I also had to cringe every time she said "garage."

    Lastly, if you're looking for a fun story with some urban fantasy thrown in like I was, you won't find it here. It's just a murder mystery story with characters you love to hate and a main character who can't catch a break.

    "Who do you voodoo?"

    Not as bad as all the reviewers are complaining about. This book was a bit funny, albeit not a lot of depth to it. My worst complaint would be that the main character's inner dialog with herself was slightly whinny. Over all if you are looking for a light romance with some mystery this would be a good choice, but I recommend waiting until this book is on sale. I have read other books by Stephanie Bond and have enjoyed them before. Also the narrator is not as horrible as stated, even if she can't pronounce garage. I happened to pick it up with the Whispersync program so for a few bucks I enjoyed it.

    Story
    "Hard on the ears!"

    The story was not bad. It was a little drawn out but, overall a decent story. But, my ears were practically bleeding from this narrator. The strange pronunciations nearly made me turn it off. I understand that different regions have different accents, but when you are reading southern you need to be SOUTHERN. I have 3 more of Stephanie Bond's book narrated by the woman. I'm almost afraid to listen to them for fear the words garage and herb are in them.

    "Cute Story"
    What did you like best about this story?

    The story was a good mystery with lots of twists that kept me guessing.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The only thing I didn't like about this audio book was that the characters are from Louisiana and the narrator sounded like she was from Wisconsin. Not a good combination.

    "Promising First in Series"
    What did you love best about In Deep Voodoo?

    I liked the characters, and the setting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The main character was funny, and relatable.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator was all wrong. Her accent and pronunciation of some words was off putting.


    Who was the most memorable character of In Deep Voodoo and why?

    Marie - she should have her own story so we could learn more about her ESP, and mysterious (or make believe) boyfriend.


    Any additional comments?

    The story/plot seemed unfinished in some ways. However, it was a good introduction and set up for a new series.

    "Whats up with how this chick pronounces stuff?!?"

    I was so excited when i heard it was in Louisiana cause I love to hear my La accent in stories. Then i was greatly disappointed. The narrator killed this performance, not in a good way. Im going to go get the next book right now and Im crossing my fingers we get a new narrator.
