    "Undead and Uninteresting ..."

    I do so love Betsy and Sinc-lair and Tina and the whole bunch but unfortunately this series seems to be running out of steam. Lots of relatively random "stuff" went on in this book but nothing ever seemed to actually happen. I enjoyed learning more background but otherwise the book was not all that engaging. It felt like Ms Davidson was really struggling to think up things for Betsy to do.

    If I hadn't already listened to (and loved) the previous ones I'm not sure I would have even finished listening to this one. It sort of droned on and then something would happen and then it would drone on again and then something else would happen that wasn't really related to the first thing that had happened. There were several times I checked to see how much more was left.

    Sinclair was mostly absent. Their relationship was what really made the series for me and without their interaction the rest of it was just time spent hoping for Sinclair and Betsy to get together but it never happened. Even Betsy was getting frustrated at their not connecting.

    While I think the narrator does an excellent job, Sinclair's voice seems almost snide when he speaks to Betsy. Sort of like a husband who has a chickie on the side and is just putting up with his dingbat wife who he can just barely stand - there isn't any more chemistry between them. And the way Betsy treats him who could blame him. I'm pretty sure that's not the intent but that's how it strikes me. I don't think I will puchase any more in the series (if there are more). Ms Davidson needs a new vampire to write about (werewolves don't interest me much) because I really do enjoy her writing.

    "I liked this"

    However, I felt the author was meeting her word count with Betsy's tirades rather than actually advancing the plot. This is why I gave it a 3 for story. I still listened to this non-stop which, for me, is a good thing. I like the original Laura and didn't care for the direction the books are taking with her character. I also thought Sinclair was turning into a wimp. On the plus side, I liked the way the major issue was resolved. I hope Ms Davidson continues to bring the series back up to her earlier standards.

    "Fascinating"
    What made the experience of listening to Undead and Unstable the most enjoyable?

    I love this series! Most series, by book 11, you could care less what these characters are doing, but this series is still fascinating. I can't wait for the next book


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

    Yes

    "MaryJanice Davidson, I just love you."

    I just love this series. It is completely off-the-wall, and hysterical as hell. The book is written pretty much how I think in my head 90% of the time. It has it all, vamps, weres, zombies, Satan, the Antichrist, and Baby Jon. In this installment, we see Betsy taking care of problems left by the prior book, and getting in to the usual trouble along the way. Thankfully, the Queen of the Vamps stumbles into the solutions to what is going on in her madcap world, or it would be total chaos. By the way, if you follow the series, you may start drinking smoothies on a regular basis.

    "Better than the last one..."
    Where does Undead and Unstable rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    As a result of a series that was losing momentum, this book attempts to recapture the reader's interest by bringing together a lot twists and resolving them somewhat by the end of the book. Not to give anything away, but this book does give insight into the others and does answer quite a few of the more confusing questions. Can't speak for everyone but the series was getting a bit confusing to me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Sinclair, although the narrator's voice for him is a bit corny. Keep in mind that Betsy has a pretty foul mouth in this book especially!


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

    Nancy Wu is a great Betsy.

    I love to read but who has time. I'm in the car all day for work so listening to books is so perfect and feeds my habit. :-)

    "OMG! What was MaryJanice thinking!!"

    Don't bother buying the book! Just sit at the book store and read the last 3 chapters and you'll be good. You'll also skip all the nauseating crap I had to listen to. The only saving grace was the narrator, Nancy Wu.

    A school administrator and avid reader and listener of books. At least an hour of every day is spent in the car, and that's where the bulk of my listening is done. I tend to listen to books on "faster" mode so I can get through more books!

    "Better than book 10"

    Better than book 10! Narration of the audiobook is excellent. This book actually had the plot move along. Book 10 could have been much shorter and incorporated into this book. As much as I loved the series at the beginning, I'm kind of looking forward to it being over.

    "The weakest out of a great series"

    I did like this book but I was seriously tired of Betsy's whining by the end. I don't understand why it took so long to get to the good part. As others have said there was a lot of nonsense that really didn't advance the plot but just took up time. Hopefully the next books will be back up to par.

    "Too short but the plot is interesting"

    I always like the way Wu molds the characters so "Performance" is still 5 stars but the rest of this book is more like Part 1 of 2. The cost should reflect it but doesn't.
