    "first audio book i've listened to"
    Where does That Ghoul Ava rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Well pretty high considering it's the first one I've listened to. It was a little hard to get into at first because Celia stuttered through the beginning, but you could tell when she truly got into the Ava character and owned it. It went from sounding like she was reading a report/instructions to actually being Ava and taking on the full character. I love her voice. It's what I would call a smooth honey whiskey...it's smooth and attractive with just that roughness to give it character.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of That Ghoul Ava?

    There were several moments that were memorable. It's hard for me to remember it all since I didn't actually have to focus completely like when you do to read a book, so I got distracted easily, but the parts in the beginning when she was talking about Sammy Hagar I believe being stringy had me laughing. Any scene with Belinda, loved her character.


    Which character – as performed by Celia Aurora de Blas – was your favorite?

    Ava hands down. She owned that character after she found her flow. I loved how she kept up with Ava's internal ramblings and drifting off into space mid story telling. Belinda was my 2nd fave. I loved how she was able to switch back and forth when they were having dialogue with no prob whatsoever. How she went from having so much emotion to none with the snap of her fingers and back again was great. She made me forget at times that only 1 person was reading this story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes it was. The story flowed great and the writing style was intriguing. Loved TW Brown's play on words.


    Any additional comments?

    The one thing that scraped at my nerves, especially with this being a novella, was the repetitiveness of Ava describing what she looks like in ghoul form...especially her rows of razor sharp teeth and widening jaw that make it impossible for her to talk. It wouldn't be so bad that it's mentioned if it weren't described like the first time every time during the story like we didn't know what was happening. And I was excited when Celia talked in the accent for the male vamp, but she would lost it mid sentence. I know accents can be hard, just wish she could've held it through all the dialogue. Other than that I really enjoyed the story and wouldn't mind picking up the book so I can really dig deep into this story.

    "The Ghoul Of My Dreams"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it is a fun romp through the afterlife of the ghoul Ava and her adventures in monster land.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ava, hands down is the stand out in this series.


    Have you listened to any of Celia Aurora de Blas’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but at times the performance was a bit staccato in the beginning but smoothed out as time went on, as if the narrator was initially uncomfortable with the material and was reading it more like instructions rather than a story. Her voice is soft and silky and I can definitely put my vote for her as Ava going forward.


    If you could take any character from That Ghoul Ava out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I can see myself being one of Belinda's "dinner" companions...
