    Story
    "wonderfully witty characters"
    Where does Blameless rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is one of the best I've listened to in a long time


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The no nonsense logic of Alexia gets her into and out of some very interesting predicaments


    What does Emily Gray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I enjoy Emily Gray's natural reading voice and her handling of the character changes


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

    Not for lack of trying. I kept getting interrupted by people asking me why I was laughing so much.


    Any additional comments?

    I am very eagerly waiting for the next book in the series. Ms. Carriger is a very talented author

    "Wonderful"

    This author has invented a world that I find is marvelous and with characters who are real and entertaining. The humor is subtle and at times not so subtle but always enjoyable. I will read anything that Ms. Carriger should write. The narrator has a wonderful voice and is very good but, and it runs throughout the entire series, there are long pauses between each chapter. Sometimes so long that I think the book has stopped. It disrupts an otherwise enjoyable experience. I will however continue to muddle through because these books are wonderful. I highly recommend them.

    "Fun read!"

    This was a fun listen. Not too deep or thought-inducing, but fun and entertaining enought that I've listened to the entire series.

    "Entertaining"

    I'm glad to see that I am not the only person who found the lengthy pauses between chapters very annoying. Overall, this is an entertaining light-hearted series.

    "Makes me want to be a women of the old time"

    I loved this story. It was well written and Emily Gray makes me envision this story so clearly. I laughed and fell right into the times. The whole combination of werewolves and vampires coexisting in this book is rich. Looking forward to the next one.

    "Pride and Prejudice meets vampires and werewolves!"

    Fun series with witty interactions and a feel of P & P to it, though a lot more romantic interactions, all tastefully done of course.

    "full steam fun"

    A delightful mix of fantasy and Victorian England, at the same time fresh and wittty. The quirky mix of characters is great. The action and adventure have the flavor of the "Wild, Wild West" storyline, with crazy gadgets and wacky heros and villains--and steamy love interest. Great chemistry among the characters. Don't be fooled by the outward simplicity, Carriger walks the walk of both the erudite and urbane.

    "What's With the Pauses?"

    I really enjoy this series, but the pauses in the narration of this installment were really, really irritating. They pull the listener out of the story, which is why I only gave it four stars instead of five.

    "A little disappointed"

    I enjoyed Soulless so much I couldn't wait for the second book to come out, and it appears I accidentally downloaded this book second. The best thing about Soulless was the witty, snappy rapport between Alexia and Connall, although I thoroughly enjoyed the supporting characters. In Blameless, Connall spends most of his time in a drunken stupor, separate from his wife, who is in grave peril. Unfortunately, whe he finally comes to his senses, he puts duty before love, and delays in finding her. So much for his volatile, emotional character. She easily forgives him, and they reunite with little fanfare. I waited through the whole book for this disappointing climax. The book was amusing, a nice little book, but I definitely won't wait with bated breath for the next in the series.
