    "Not for me"

    I was pretty excited about listening to this book. I had the series listed on goodreads for ages to read. My excitement was short lived however, I really couldn't get into the story line. I hated the way the main character is described and she had no personality to me. I also really hated the narration, I actually feel bad writing this but the voice was like nails on a chalkboard. All in all this was not for me.

    "Fabulous fun from start to finish!"
    Where does Soulless rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of my absolute favourite!


    What other book might you compare Soulless to and why?

    Very few books are as quirky and different as this one. The adventures of Amelia Peabody are in a similar style but without the fantasy.


    What about Emily Gray’s performance did you like?

    Emily Gray does a great job of creating unique voices for the characters so when listening its so much easier and interesting... I particularly love Conall's voice.


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

    Most of the book moved me to laughter, fantastic humour!


    Any additional comments?

    Read it, read the rest of the series, read all books by Gail Carriger

    Story
    "This one is a keeper"

    This book has taught me a lot - that there is a sub-genre called steampunk, several new words, and last but not least that there are still books that manage to bring on a new angle on the whole vampire and werewolf-hype.
    The book's main character is Alexia Tarabotti, a person without soul, a so-called preternatural. In perfect logical conclusion, she cancels out the supernatural abilites of vampires and werewolves. She is a spinster, an intelligent, italian-looking spinster with decidedly strong opinions. When she keeps bumping into gruff werewolf-pack-leader, Lord Maccon, they discover that they feel a growing mutual attraction - despite the infamous hedgehog incident! But supernaturals keep disappearing, and what is going on behind the doors of the new Hypocras club?
    Set in a slightly different version of Victorian England (with a lot more steam, and maybe even more etiquette), the characters move according to social rules, but they manage to finagle (see?! new word!) everything just as they wish it.
    Apart from flawless story-development, likable characters and logical inner workings the book greatly benefits from the truly outstanding vocabulary, the witty dialogues and the prospect of books two, three and four.
    The narrator keeps the characters distinguishable and manages to convey the properness of the British stiff upper lip.

    "I love this book"

    Just about to start book two. I recommend this book whole heartedly. I've read it as a book and today was my first listen. It was beautifully read, the odd blip occurred though this may have been my phone app. I don't think I'd pronounce some words the same but that wasn't a problem.

    The book itself is a beautifully written ,Victorian alternate reality , featuring vampires, wearwolves and an outspoken strong minded young woman . It's funny, well paced and quite gripping; and yes there's more. What are you waiting for, get reading/listening, it's well worth it!

    Story
    "To be souless does not mean you have no life!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Refreshing and entertaining provoking lots of laughter.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The only way for a misfit to fit is to shape their own lives.


    What does Emily Gray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Emily brings out the characters and changes of moods, painting pictures with the voice as well as words.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh and lifted a smile to my face.


    Any additional comments?

    I've Listened to it twice enjoying it just as much the second time round.

    Story
    "A must read"
    Would you listen to Soulless again? Why?

    Absolutely. The narrator captures Gail Carriger's slightly oddball characters perfectly and makes each one come to life with different voices and accents.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The world building. I love the world of The Parasol Protectorate and am an avid reader of the series. Gail Carriger creates a unique blend of adventure, humor and suspense as well as loveable and intriguing characters.


    Which character – as performed by Emily Gray – was your favourite?

    Lord Conall Maccon. He's my favorite in the books and she bought him perfectly to life. And of course Alexia.


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

    If I could, absolutely.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy the books as well and I highly recommend the YA series thats set before this series.

    "Fantastic"
    Where does Soulless rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Right at the top, I loved it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything really. The characters are engaging and funny, the idea for the story is great and it is well written.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I love all of them, but the opening for this book made me laugh and got me hooked.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this audio book, so much in fact that I went on to buy the entire series (All of which are equally good and worth a listen). I also thought the choice of narrator was spot on, Emily Gray does a bang up job. Will listen to again, probably more then once.

    "Predictable but fun, frivolous and entertaining"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    would recommend to my female friends - don't think a bloke would like it much


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

    traditional victorian romance meets modern vampire/werewolf chick lit Easy to listen to, unlike some of the more complex plots available. Don't order this if you want a serious, challenging plot.
