    Yes, I love the the overarching plot of the series


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It's really good, you'll have to read the next...

    Equally good

    "Dragged a bit in the middle"
    Any additional comments?

    Started with a bang and ended with a bang, but the middle dragged and I had to put it aside for a bit... luckily shadow of night came out to distract me. There were also a lot of long pauses between chapters that made it hard to follow at times.

    "let down"
    What was most disappointing about Gail Carriger’s story?

    the first one was funny sexy, and fast paced, but they keep going down hill. Less suspense, less romance, less humor. and more unintelligible, made up science


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    the narration was still as good as the first

    "I love it!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great Fun ! Love the fact the heroine is lauded for her bodacious-ness instead of being "rail-thin"...

    But also a fun story. Part animal story, part mystery, part lusty romance.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Conor McConn


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

    Yep

    "Alexia is on the move!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The best part of these books is Ivy. The author's use of her voice highlight the absurd in polite society has me cracking up every time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blameless?

    The protagonist's forthright manner and prosaic attitude make nearly all her battles and chases entertaining.

    "So much fun!"

    This entire series is so much fun. I listened to all of them back to back, I was so into them.
    The narrator does a stellar job, so I'd highly recommend to read them as audio books.

    "delightful"

    this series is great. it gets better as you get to know the characters, it reminds me a little of the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth peters, same type of lead characters without the supernatural. i have completly enjoyed the series and love that it has some comedy to it too.

    "Rollicking Good Fun!"
    Where does Blameless rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    One of the more fun historical novels recently written.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Alexia is fun, witty and determined. What's not to like?


    What about Emily Gray???s performance did you like?

    The narrators ability to portray the different characters by vocal inflection, accent, and pitch is fun and easy to listen to.


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

    I laughed all the way through it!


    Any additional comments?

    A witty and fun way to spend listening time...anytime!

    "I love this series and the narrator"

    I only gave a 3 star on "OVERALL" because the spacing between chapters was WAY to long anywhere from 6 to 10 seconds. Most spacing should be only 1 or 1.5 seconds tops. The problem being that your not sure if your Ipod or MP3 player has died. I think that this story can easily be re-edited to remove the time between each chapter, and make the story much more fluid. I love the characters, and I love the idea of a whole new kind of para-normal situation. I can't wait until the baby is born. Gail Carriger has a wonderful and spirited heroine. And Emily Gray is wonderful with narration. (But please fix the LONG pauses between CHAPTERS) I will defiantly continue with this series.

    I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
