    "Wonderful series with well developed characters"
    Would you consider the audio edition of To Have and To Code to be better than the print version?

    I think of it as two separate things I prefer audio for conveinance but collect hard copies because of my love of books


    What was one of the most memorable moments of To Have and To Code?

    As with all of the books in the series, the strength of love & family is so strong it's hard to pick one part!


    Have you listened to any of Martha Harmon Pardee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes she's great! Character voices are consistent from book to book it's like talking with family, Nell sounds like Nell Jamie like Jamie etc in every book


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

    Yep


    Any additional comments?

    The is such a great series! It's loving, positive, encouraging, I love these witches! Debora Geary is a talented author, you "feel" her writing, not all authors can do that consistantly, she does

    "Fantastic, great, one of her best!"

    This book fills in the story of how Nell and Daniel met before The Modern Witch series starts. Funny, interesting, sad in places. Provides more information on Nell's parents as well. I can't say enough about Deborah Geary as an author. I devour her books and reread and re-listen to them many multiples of times. Excellent feel good stories with lots of depth as well. Martha Harmon Pardee is the perfect narrator for this series.

    "REFRESHING STORIES"

    It's so lovely to listen to Nell's story. My only complaint is that it wasn't longer and included the story of the children's births, but I am sure that could be another book at some time.

    A bit tame compared to my usual romance tastes but you hardly notice it as the storyline is so interesting that it keeps you engaged and there with the families.

    I can't wait for more of these stories to be released in Audio!!

    "Good witch series"

    This is the story of how Nell and Daniel met, the parents of the children in The Modern Witch series. Nell is a witch and Daniel is a hacker. It's a nice easy listen, perfect to give your brain a rest in between more complicated books.

    Story
    "I really like this series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of To Have and To Code to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version, so I can't say whether it's better or not. I don't have a great deal of time to sit down to read a book for fun, but I love audiobooks. I drive several hundred miles a week for my work and audiobooks are an absolute pleasure when I'm on the road. It's an opportunity to "read" for fun (aka non technical books) without the guilt that I should be reading professional literature.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nell is a complex character. She's smart and funny and very loyal to her family and friends.
    I like it that she's able to stand her ground with her brothers and is not afraid to get her hands dirty.


    What does Martha Harmon Pardee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She has a pleasant voice and does a good job with the different characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The scene at the wedding where Nell is working so hard to be a supportive bridesmaid while her heart is aching over losing her friend to marriage and Texas. The interaction between Nell and Daniel was exceptionally well written and well presented by Ms. Pardee.


    Any additional comments?

    I have the audiobooks for all three of the Modern Witch books and am eagerly awaiting the next installments. The stories mesh well, although each book could stand alone too. I love this family and their friends and wish they were my neighbors. Debora Geary writes wonderful stories with just the right mix of romance without overdoing the "bump and grind" that is sometimes a little too much in some modern romance novels. Sometimes, my husband listens in with my audiobooks, and "soft porn" would be a little embarrassing. This is NOT what Debora Geary writes. Her books are funny and romantic and not R-rated. Thanks so much for that!

    "A Joyous Series"

    This book, as a part of a much larger series, is filled with deep characters that are so real they could step off the page. However, my favorite thing with each book in this series is the deep feeling of joy and contentment I feel during and after I read them. Thank you Debora Geary. I own all the books you have written thus far and will continue to buy them all both in Kindle and Audible formats.

    This book is the prequel to the rest of the series. It is interesting to get to know some of the characters in their younger days.

    Story
    "Good, not as great as other Witch Central Books"
    Would you consider the audio edition of To Have and To Code to be better than the print version?

    Yes, Ms. Harmon-Pardee's voice pulls you into the story and the characters.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    It gave the 'pre-history' of one of the central characters (Nell) in the Witch Central books, but it was more of a boy-meets-girl plot than a magical story.


    Have you listened to any of Martha Harmon Pardee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Just as good as other of her books that I've listened to. She is very good with changing (and maintaining) the different voices in the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Important information about how Witch Central got it's start. It is a needed book, to 'flesh-out' the characters in the other books, so I would recommend it. But it doesn't have the same 'magic' and fun plot-line as Debora Geary's other books.

    I like Science Fiction, Post Apocalypse, mysteries, and good romance. If you can mix it all in together, I am one happy camper.

    Story
    "This is a cute story but the narrator blows..."
    Would you try another book from Debora Geary and/or Martha Harmon Pardee?

    I would definitely read another book by Debora Geary, but Martha Harmon Pardee is the most annoying narrator I've heard in ages.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is a cute adorable, fluffy romantic story about a fire witch and a hacker. I love the character development, and really am rooting for them. The story makes me feel sappy and romantic, exactly what I wanted.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Martha Harmon Pardee’s performances?

    Absolutely not. Her dramatic pauses were bizarre and confusing. She has pauses that make you think there is a change in scene until you realize it wasn't. She attempts to give some kind of feeling performance that is pretentious and completely inappropriate for the genre of the story. Everything is muted and "understated" and really really annoying. I would honestly have to avoid a book read by this Narrator, even if I loved the author.


    Was To Have and To Code worth the listening time?

    No, but it would be a fun book to read.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep the author, skip the narrator.

    Story
    "Wonderful Prequel!!!!"
    Would you listen to To Have and To Code again? Why?

    Yes! And I have many times!!! I just love these stories!! I listen to all of them over and over again.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This was a great story to learn about Nell and her family. In the Modern Witch series, her family is already established. With this you really get to know "her" and Jamie and her mother.


    Which character – as performed by Martha Harmon Pardee – was your favorite?

    I love them all!


    Any additional comments?

    I continue to be mystified by folks that say they don't like Martha Pardee's reading of this series. I could not image the folks in these stories "sounding" any other way. If readers were switched, I'd be very sad. I think Martha does a Fantastic job!
