    Story
    "Waste of a credit and 10 hours of my life"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story was superficial, the writing mediocre at best, plot was flimsy and cliched.During a scene describing a sexual encounter, the term is "his velvety knob" was actually used. Srsly? The characters are paper thin, and after a while, I could not keep them all straight; there is not really enough to distinguish one from the other.The protagonist is in the witness protection program, and supposedly has had years of training, but is constantly making references to her past life. She's been in WitSec for over 10 years, but upon meeting residents of the town she has moved into, she inexplicably introduces herself by her former name. The first half of the novel is full of improbable oopsies.Some horrific crime had occurred in the town prior to the character moving there, and constant references are made to "the victims and families", but there is never the slightest explanation of what happened. Maybe it is in another one of the author's books, but I found these constant references really annoying, and I have no interest whatsoever in finding out what happened.


    What was most disappointing about Stephanie Bond’s story?

    The characters were underdeveloped, the story flimsy and not really coherent, it was not funny in the least. And the ending was just too syrupy sweet and tidy-also completely and utterly predictable.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator stunk, mispronouncing a few words; not a regional difference, but really screwing it up. Garage came out as "graaaadge" The protagonist's voice was awful too-it sounded like a bad parody of a vapid country club social climber.


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

    No. It was wretched.


    Any additional comments?

    If I could give it negative stars, I would have.

    Story
    "No story + no reader + no characters = No Fun!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not. The story was disjointed. Instead of fleshing out the characters (including those from the first book in this series), they all became caricatures - I couldn't relate to any of them.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Stephanie Bond? Why or why not?

    Yes, I'd try another book. Maybe this one was just hexed.


    What three words best describe Maureen Jones’s voice?

    Wrong, distracting, odd


    Was Voodoo or Die worth the listening time?

    No, I skipped some sections.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was disjointed, and the reader's accent (Canadian maybe?) and character voices were distracting. None of the voices matched the descriptions of the characters. I thought the main character was an older woman (based on the first novel in this series) because of the voice given to her by the reader in both books. Disappointed all around.

    Story
    "Who talks like that??"

    In addition to odd pronunciations of some words, the narrator does a terrible job with voices, makes characters sound like poorly-done caricatures. Her rendition of the protagonist makes her sound like a pretentious biddy twice the age the story indicates. Much of the humor is lost in the narrator's poor delivery. I feel like the book would have been far more entertaining if I had picked up the print version.

    "Hard to finish..."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Main characters "voice" is unbearable. Maybe if their were no garages. ...i cringe each time the word is used.


    Would you recommend Voodoo or Die to your friends? Why or why not?

    No.... again...see above


    Would you be willing to try another one of Maureen Jones’s performances?

    Not unless it is free. I would have been extremely dissatisfied had i paid full price or wasted a credit on this....


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Voodoo or Die?

    Any use if the word garage, and the sex scenes. Hard to buy tthat anyone would want to spend special time with such an irritating whiner.


    Any additional comments?

    Please....please....dont waste my money. We get it, you're a "thespian" but when your listeners are praying that your main character is the victim so that the voice goes away.....yeah. not good.

    Story
    "Fun Series based on characters in a small town"
    What made the experience of listening to Voodoo or Die the most enjoyable?

    I loved how the characters in this series are introduced and reappear in each book.


    Have you listened to any of Maureen Jones’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She is a good reader but needs to stop using the west coast word for garage and use the southern pronunciation. Its annoying.


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

    yes

    "the narration is painful to listen to"
    What did you like best about Voodoo or Die? What did you like least?

    How on earth did they come up with the voice for the main character? She sounds like a uptight old spinster and this does not gel with the storyline at all


    What was most disappointing about Stephanie Bond’s story?

    The narration


    Would you be willing to try another one of Maureen Jones’s performances?

    Have listened to one other and that was entertaining


    Did Voodoo or Die inspire you to do anything?

    Yes turn it off without finishing it
