Publisher's Summary

People say karma's a... well, you know. Personally, I don't think I'm that bad. It's not like I wanted this job. I wasn't even in my right mind when I accepted the position.

Now, I'm surrounded by crazy coworkers like Lady Luck, who's a bit of a tramp, and Murphy's Law, who's a bumbling oaf. But the worst is Fate. He's got a problem with transfers like myself and I have to see him constantly. It's unavoidable, since we're hunting the same man, my murderer.

    "Interesting story concept, but..."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It is 50/50 on if this is worth the listen/read. I was wondering if this was written for a specific gender. I found the reading horrible with her "acting" out characters as cheesy. I also found the main character as too whiny and constantly restating the fact that she found the character Fate as unappealing and rude and yet always attracted. When the two characters finally did consummate their relationship I found it disgusting to listen to and hit the fast-forward button. Oh and there was so much build-up tp the main goal of the main character that when it finally came I found myself saying out loud, "Really? That's it? I went through 29 chapters of this dog for this?!" Yes, uneventful, short and you enter into the finish without much warning (sort of like that poorly written sex scene).


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

    Maybe. But again the whining of the character throughout the entire book is a big turn-ff.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Angel Clark’s performances?

    I would prefer not to if I can avoid it.


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

    Yes I actually would as I do like the concept of the story. I think written for the screen to make the main character less whiny would really do the story justice and could be interesting to watch.

    "Intolerable narration"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone. Who. Likes. Staccato. Narration.


    What didn’t you like about Angel Clark’s performance?

    This narrator is, by far, the worst I have ever heard. So unnatural and jilted you can barely pay attention to the story.

    "Interesting"

    Different and unusual but makes you wonder. Would have been better if the narrator wasn't so bad. Talked like Captain Kirk and her guy voices sounded like 13 year old boys.

    "Fire this narrator!"

    When I read the summary, I was sure the book was going to be good. However, when I hit the play button all I could concentrate on was the robotic voice droning on. There was no passion, no fire, nothing. Stephen Hawking would have been better.

    "Totally Unique"

    You wake up and discover you are now "Karma" and you must work with the insufferable person called faith. What could be the problem?

    Karma can be described as something that you get based on what you put out. On the other hand Fate, which is also sometimes called as destiny is that will happen inevitably.

    So if you make a decision because you are karma why can fate over ride you? Why should you care because as soon as your probation period is over you will get the hell out of here. Why does it bother you that fate is always leaning on something.

    What is wrong that I had a life before my after life? Who killed me and why?

    Read this one.

    "Narrator Can Kill A Book. "

    Story was okay. Good idea on the characters and playing of their meanings BUT the narrator made ever MALE in the book sound like a nasal whiner. Fate should of been a masculine character, a man's man, buff, and sexy But the narrator made him a sissy boy.

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

    "Different"

    A bit different than other of it's ilk I've read. Interesting universe. Good few hours. I'll have to continue with the series since there are a lot of unanswered questions.

    "I dunno yet"

    It was a compelling story but I'm not sure that it was resolved. I kind of felt like it was feeling around for the point.

    I may read the next one but I don't know if I want tongue it the time.

    We'll see.

    "Enjoyable story, but has background noise"
    Any additional comments?

    I've both read and listened to the story and both are pretty enjoyable, however, there is a distinct background noise which is noticeable throughout the story.
    This was somewhat distracting and while it didn't detract from the story, it does push me to suggest the story get re-narrated in a "quiet room" withOUT the background noise.

    "Okay"

    This book is okay but by no means riveting. It's great to have on in the back ground while doing the housework or something as it's easy to keep up with what's going on. I have to say I didn't really like narrator. Her voice is rather annoying to listen too and her male voices are terrible, they all sound like petulant teenage boys. Not sure if I will be getting the next instalment.
