    Story
    "Tid Bits and Small details..."
    Where does The Early Years rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book only makes sense if you are familiar with the original 6 Jane Yellowrock books. Having said that, this short story helps one see a small Tid Bit into the many layers that make Jane .. Jane.


    What other book might you compare The Early Years to and why?

    None as it is a small story that lets us see of what is going on inside the complex mind of Jane.


    What about Khristine Hvam’s performance did you like?

    Listen to the 6 books available in the Jane Yellowrock series and then you will be able to know how exceptionally well Khristine does at not only reading but also at being inside the head of Jane and her panther.


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

    That is an odd question to answer after all the book is only 10 minutes long...


    Any additional comments?

    Being a Jane Yellowrock fan, I love finding out all the info I can concerning her and what she went thru to make her the person she is. Being able to take a glimpse of what is primarily only know to the author helps deepen who Jane is and why she does what she does. .

    I don't usually rush out for all the "best sellers", but give each intriguing book/author a look. I have found many diamonds in the rough.

    "Jane's Mystery"

    This short gives some background of Jane Yellowrock and how she got her name. It sets the stage for a great series.

    "Good Beginning!"

    I am new to this series and I am glad to see a strong but young character. Is this series one that I will continue most definitely. I have Skinwalker and the collection of short audio books that was on sale. Glad it was because I am sure that I will enjoy those as well.

    "Short but sweet"

    Is this essential for those who want to know more about Jane and Beast? No. But it was fun to listen to. Would I recommend it. Yes, for nosey busy bodies like me. Most of what is in here is in the series.

    In this one Jane does have a bit of a Southern accent which I expected.

    Phooey, go ahead and buy it. You want to. I did. And it was fun!

    "Short and sweet"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a fun short story, but be aware that it is an extract from one of the other books, not a new story.
    Also be aware that while some of these 'shorts' are an hour or more long, others are rather less than that.
    Very enjoyable listen anyway!

    Story
    "The Early Years - Not exactly fantasy Novell"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Story is about a Native American that turn into a cat. The story line is boring and once the character turn into cat yet language gets really dumbed down.

    Note: I bought two short stories from this series this one was the better of the two the other was totally stupid.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Faith Hunter again?

    NO


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    the NARRATOR was fine the script SUCKS. She did a good job at making the cat form sound like a metal retard.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Early Years?

    the entire thing was awful


    Any additional comments?

    ya don't buy her books if your into fantasy Novels this more like sudo native american folklore tales.
