Publisher's Summary

Sick of hearing about vampires? So is Meena Harper. But her bosses are making her write about them anyway, even though Meena doesn't believe in them.

Not that Meena isn't familiar with the supernatural. See, Meena Harper knows how you're going to die. (Not that you're going to believe her. No one ever does.) But not even Meena's precognition can prepare her for what happens when she meets - then makes the mistake of falling in love with - Lucien Antonescu, a modern-day prince with a bit of a dark side. It's a dark side a lot of people, like an ancient society of vampire hunters, would prefer to see him dead for.

The problem is, Lucien's already dead. Maybe that's why he's the first guy Meena's ever met whom she could see herself having a future with. See, while Meena's always been able to see everyone else's future, she's never been able look into her own. And while Lucien seems like everything Meena has ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, he might turn out to be more like a nightmare.

Now might be a good time for Meena to start learning to predict her own future....If she even has one.

    "Not As Amusing As I Had Expected"

    It begins as an amusing satire of "Twilight" and of soap operas. And it ends on a fairly emphatic rejection of the "Twilight" phenomenon. Unfortunately, what's between the beginning and the end is a heroine being astonishingly stupid and both male romantic leads being obnoxiously sexist (in entirely different ways).

    The narrator is also a bit chirpy in her narration.

    There are better contemporary urban fantasy novels out there.

    "This Book Made Me Actually Appreciate "Twilight".."

    Ok, while I admittedly was into vamp-lit long before Vamp Culture took over our world, I still have a discerning pallette, and this type of crud is what has made everyone turn off of vampire stories. Why did it make me appreciate Twilight? Because at least the heroine is honest about her feelings AND her intentions....she loves the guy, doesn't care that he is a vampire, and is more than happy to become one in order to be with the great love of her life. I am BEYOND tired of this mundane, run of the mill garbage where some mortal airhead falls for a vampire, has amazing, mind-numbing sex with him, and then somehow decides she doesn't want to be tainted by his evil ways and instead, wants to pursue the forces of good (sorry for the plot spoiler there...) and all just so that the author can stretch it out into a money making series. Come on! Give me a story where the heroine accepts what she is taking on willingly and with the brain of an adult any day over this. Truth br told, if vampires DID exist, I don't know many women who would turn down being eternally young, living with the great love of their lives forever and whom they had amazing sex with and who just also happens to be crazy rich and offers his undying love and protection. AND WE ALL KNOW IT'S TRUE. And yes, everyone else is right about the narrator...I felt like my 9 year old daughter was telling me a story....Horrible!

    "Hook, line, and sinker!"

    This was my first audio book experience, and the standard has been set pretty high. I really enjoyed the combination of romance, suspense, historical information, and comedy the author provided. I really loved Mina Harper and found myself laughing out loud on several occasions. The narrator was amazing, which has prompted me to look for other audio books she has narrated. She does a really nice job changing her voice up for different characters. My only complaint would be the ending. It was disappointing, but I am thinking that it was possibly written as a cliffhanger for a trilogy or a new series????

    "Satiable"

    I picked this book based on the description it took so long in getting started, but once it got to the middle of the first part it starting picking up and became funny. Her brother reminds me of Jason from Sooke Stackhouse. It was a liittle different from my taste. If you like Princess Diaries then you will like this book

    "I should have left it in the wish list"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I have been thinking about listening to this book for a long time. I had it in my wish list for over a year. I should have left it there. There is something about the reader that makes the main character sound about 13 years old instead of an adult who is living on her own in New York. It's more like a high school cafeteria. I feel bad for the author. Sorry Meg.


    Would you recommend Insatiable to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, I just couldn't take her seriously.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emily Bauer?

    Anyone. Maybe even Emily, if she had used a different voice.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No. but I might buy it in book form.

    "Meg Cabot does little wrong by me."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I always recommend anything by Meg Cabot. Her books are so easy to get into. This series was very entertaining.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Meena is a great character. She hates how everyone is becoming obsessed with vampires (which is so true in real life). She wants to have nothing to do with them but they start hitting her in every part of her life.


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

    I haven't heard anything by Emily before but she was very enjoyable to listen to.

    "Surprisingly refreshing"
    Where does Insatiable rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I initially brought this book because I too am sooo over the Vamp fascination! Im so sick of going into the paranormal section and finding a ratio of 10 vamp books for ever 1 substantial ghost or haunting books. So i gave this book a try thinking that i might get something other than vampires. No such luck though, BUT don't despair! The story has a great story line, I thoroughly enjoyed it, the characters are great, and the ending is not quite what anyone would expect. Over all the story line was very unexpected, not your typical vamp book of girl meets vampire,they fall in love, the vampire tries to hold back fighting with his inner need to feast on the poor girl. Nope absolutely none of that in this book, I'm glad to report. Its a good book and its worth a try.

    "A very slow beginning but decent afterwards...."

    I have had my share of reads and found this one lacking a good "starting". You would have to force yourself to listen to at least Chapter 32 before it gets interesting. The story line was the best part of the book. The Palatine Guard was the most interesting character while the others developed slowly.

    Meena is a soap-opera dialogue writer who can see people deaths when she sees them. She doesn't like or believe in vampires and is upset about her job's show is bringing in a vampire story. She meets the Prince of Darkness and finds herself in the middle of a sibling fight for the throne.

    The story ends with a possibility of becoming a series. More of a "satisfying ending" then a "happy ending".

    "Horrible narrator"

    The story line is decent but ruined by the horrible narrator. She has one voice which is permanently bubbly like she is reading with a forced smile and a fake saccharin sweet voice. Can't tell which character is talking when it is the same voice for all characters.

    "Worth it . Vampire with a twist"
    This book wasn???t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I enjoyed this book. This an Overbite are the best by Cabot. There is a wonderful relationship between Meena and her brother. If you like vampire novels with a few stakes, and an old fashion family power struggle this is for you.
    This is not so much about a vampire than Meena and how she has to deal precognition and a vampire hunter who has a grudge.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    My next was Overbite. It is a follow up to this.


    Any additional comments?

    There are only 2 book worth the money by Meg Cabot. It is this one and Overbite. Meena is more of a adult than the other female characters in Cabot's novels.

    "Insatiable is Insubstantial"

    OK. I'm a vampire geek. I love them all. Well, almost all of them.

    Author Meg Cabot is famous for her "Princess Diaries" series aimed at girls/teens. I'm afraid "Insatiable" while not aimed at this audience is written as if it were. Unfortunately, I'm a grown woman. The story was simplistic, easily anticipated, and full of teen angst (though apparently the main character Meena is actually in her twenties). While the narrator's voice was I'm a sure a fair representation of the character (empty of substance and full of girly sugar & spice), it failed to raise this listener's interest.

    Please, please if you love vampires then do not buy this book.

    "Loved it!"

    What I really liked was the way it was so completely different to the rest of the vampire craze at the moment. The vampires are more traditional. I loved the story and I don't think its simplistic like the princess diaries like another reviwer said - its very different and really enjoyable. Although there are sappy moments like any love story, it's not unbearable and not full of teen angst like a lot of books in this genre. I'm in my early twenties and I can definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for chick lit with a twist.

    "As always vampires will apear"

    This is a good book Meena hates vampires and as she states they are everywhere. She ends up falling in love with Lucien Antonescu which could prove to be his down full. It is well and truly a love story with lots of sappy moments as well as rampant sex.

    Has a lot of action in it and Meena is not a I need the guy to do it all for me she is capable of kicking arse herself which makes a nice change.

    Like the narrators voice which is always a plus

    "How refreshing!!!!"

    This is a different route to the vampire story, not your run of the mill vamp and human romance. The insightful and well sculpted characters aid the more realistic sanarios. This is gripping and action packed as well as the romantic and companionship aspects. a well rounded book which turns the genre on its head. I would seriouisly recomend it if your bored of the same old, same old.
