Living with the Dead: Women of the Otherworld, Book 9

Robyn Peltier moved to Los Angeles after her young husband's sudden death. Though she's still grieving, the challenges of her new life as the PR consultant to Portia Kane - the world's most famous celebutante wannabe - can sometimes be amusing, even distracting. But when her client is gunned down in a nightclub, Robyn is suddenly on the run as the prime suspect in the murder. And as more bodies pile up around her, it seems like only Hope Adams, Robyn's best friend, and Hope's somewhat spooky boyfriend Karl are on Robyn's side. But it's not the police Hope is worried about, and the only way Hope can keep her friend alive is by letting her enter a world she's safer knowing nothing about.

    "Great Story brought down by terrible naration"

    I have been burning through this series enjoy each one more then the last, until now. This isn't the fault of the author, but the terrible narrator. This woman tried so hard to make male voices that all she did was destroy the narration, taking you out of the story. Her male voices sounded either drunk, mentally challenged, or like they smoked 4 packs of cigarettes every day. Add on to that the fact that she repeatedly miss-pronounced the name of Jamie Vegas. I have no idea how she got "Hamie" from Jamie, but she did. As I look forward to the rest of the series I am only filled with trepidation noticing that she is the narrator for the next few books also. I just wish a series could keep one narrator for the entire series.
    As for the story. It was another great installment in this series with all the twists and turns that Kelley Armstrong is so great at creating. I love how she is able to give her characters depth and a well roundness that many authors lack. I feel like I know these characters as people. With faults, hopes and dreams. I would highly recommend this entire series to anybody.
    In short, if you are debating reading or listening and don't care either way, Then read this book. Don't skip this one either way...just be forewarned.

    "Good book, horrible narrator."

    The book itself is good, just as I expected from Kelley Armstrong. However, the narrator was just awful. In my opinion, she made Karl sound like some old pervert, Hope sound like an annoying teenage valley girl, and Robyn sounds pretty close to Hope, giving me problems telling them apart at times. I did enjoy the book, but I was very tempted to stop listening and deleting it from my Zune simply because of the choice of narrator.

    "Enjoyed the book...once you get past the NARRATOR"

    I just love all Kelley's books, but it's very difficult to get into when the narrator is so horrible. She even messes up Jaime Vegas' name, pronouncing it, as if Jaime were a Hispanic male name! A previous review called the main character a whiney valley girl, which I completely agree with. These are strong female characters, not young teenagers and it would be great if the narrator took that seriously. Again, once you get past the narrator, you get to enjoy the book...though a little dark and disturbing at points. Still a great book. I'm sort of bumbed to see the same narrator on the next book, but she's not there for the 11th, whoohoo!

    "Subject matter not to my taste"

    I am a big armstrong fan, so I'm sorry to say this one was too dark for me. Pedophilia and the abuse of incest-born retarded people just made me delete this one from my ipod. Sorry. Don't want to read more about that.

    "Worst narrator!"
    What did you like best about Living with the Dead? What did you like least?

    The story was great, probably much better if you read the book instead of listening
    The worst part was the narrator...everyone sounded like a teenage girl so at times it got confusing as to who was talking and the men's voices? They didn't sound male I'm not sure what they sounded like but either way they were not good


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different narrator


    Any additional comments?

    Do the author of the books actually listen to the audible versions before they are released? I'm not sure how it works but after finally getting used to the narrator of the last few books (who was ok) she then switched to this person. Like other reviewers said everyone sounds like a 16 year old valley girl...hope sometimes has a New Jersey accent the voices are hard to distinguish from each other even the males the only reason I know who was who was because it said "hope" or "Robyn" before each chapter.,.and the worst most annoying part of it was calling Jamie Vegas "hamie" where does that even come from? This is why I question if the author actually listens to the books ...I love this series and will buy the next book on audible because I dnt have time to read it. I see its the same narrator so hopefully these problems will b fixed and I can enjoy the story more because i know its about the pack and jamie will be in it....but I would recommend if u have the time read the book you will prob like it better

    I'm a 30-something paranormal, mystery, and humor enthusiast. For me, the main character is the most important part of a book.

    "The narrator needs to be fired."
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    she detracted by being the narrator she was terrible. she mutilated the voices and she mispronounced names. it would have been better if she had not attempted voices at all.


    Any additional comments?

    I LOVE Kelly Armstrong. I love her writing and I love the series. I was very upset when I realized the narrator was so terrible! she has no sense for the characters, and she cannot even come close to a passable male voice. Karl sounds like someone is constantly choking him, and her female voices are almost as bad. They are difficult to tell apart and they sound like 16 year old brainless twits. Also how the hell do you repeatedly mispronounce Jamie as Haime?!? I could understand if the character was male or hispanic, but the character is FEMALE and a REDHEAD! I was very sad to see such a great stories ruined by a incompetent narrator.

    "Great story, not so great narration"

    I was totally disappointed while listening to this story, because the narrator did not do her homework at all. There were mispronunciations, and characters had different accents from previous stories. The narrator also sounded too ... young and whiny.

    "Overall it was great"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Living with the Dead to be better than the print version?

    I think both are very good.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This story was in third person. Usually women of the otherworld are first person experience


    What three words best describe Jen Taylor’s voice?

    The narrator's voice is very versatile.


    Any additional comments?

    With the exception of messing up one of the character's names, the narrator was very good. I don't blame her. I blame the director. This was book nine, No Humans Involved had already been printed.

    How could the performance have been better?

    I don't understand how the narrator got


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the story, however I was very use to everyone in the story having some type of power and it was just a little disappointing that Robyn is just human.
