    Story
    "Quirky, fast-paced, and humorous"

    This was an entertaining book, filled with witty dialogue and a unique plot. The characters were well-written, but not very likeable. Then again, the world is filled with unlikeable people. The plot was very strange/quirky (in a good way) - it was unique. This book was definitely different, so its worth the read for that reason alone. Plus, its a short story, so if its not your cup of tea, you don't invest much time. But I thought it was quite enjoyable. I listened to the Audible audio version of this book narrated by Don Foote. I really enjoyed his narration. I don't know if I've listened to anything he has done before, but I would definitely check more of his stuff out. His voices (especially of the opposite sex) are good, he gives each character a unique voice without being cheesy, and his voice brings excitement to the text. Overall, this is an enjoyable book both for the story and the narration.

    Story
    "A quick, entertaining listen"

    This book is a quick and entertaining listen. The premise is about a woman, Dana, who ends up in someone else’s body. Then they go on a hilarious adventure involving switching bodies, teleportation, invisibility, and other impossible ideas. The story works through this really well, making it a funny, entertaining listen that will leave you feeling good afterwards. The narrator did an excellent job with the characters, and he did a great job with his pacing, tone, and enthusiasm. Overall, I recommend this book if you’re looking for a quick listen that will make you laugh and leave you feeling good.

    Story
    "Quirky, comedic sci-fi novella"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    You need to be in the right mood to capture the dark humor and good writing of The PlaNets all Shone.It's a story about Dana, a traveling sales person whose body is occupied by a craxy guy after she drinks an errant soft drink left in a rental car. Crazies ensue, but Dana keeps her humor throughout


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

    After getting past the bizarre premise, I enjoyed the "interaction" between dana and her occupied self.


    Did Don Foote do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I thought narrator Don Foote did an admirable job differentiating the cvahracters.


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

    No,


    Any additional comments?

    Story
    "What happens when you share a soul?"

    My rating: 3.5 stars
    Audiobook narrator Don Foote rating: 4 stars

    This was a pretty weird but fun and short book. I have read one of Nora’s other books and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, I did not enjoy this one as much.

    Though, I do like the road trip aspect of it. It is fun to think of what would happen if there were another ‘soul’ inside your body that you could interact with. I also like the idea of a really famous rock star having 70+ illegitimate children all laying a partial claim to the property and all interacting with one another. There were some fun references in this book but I guess I did not enjoy it as much as I wanted to.

    The narrator does a good job of switching his voice between the three main characters.

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    "Weird story."

    This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBoom dot com.

    Really weird book. I wasn't sure what to expect. It was described as a body-switching science fiction novel where they're on the run, but it's more about the characters' interactions than about the plot. I guess it reminds me of some low budget 80s film where the plot is a stretch but the characters don't take it very seriously. Personally, I didn't find it particularly funny, but your mileage may vary. I thought the sexual references were very misplaced, especially with suggestions of necrophilia.

    I would have preferred a female narrator since it's takes place using Dana's perspective, but Don wasn't terrible.

    Story
    "Be careful who you drink"
    Any additional comments?

    I eceived a complementary copy of The Planets All Shone, from the publisher, author or narrator, via Audiobook Boom, in exchange for an unbiased review. I had no idea what to expect...
    A woman on her way to give a sales presentation drinks a bottle of soda before realising it wasn't hers - and finds herself with two unexpected companions: one holding a gun and the other inside her and wanting to get out. Circumstances direct that they have to run and so meet up with others from the woman's family.This is a short, easy listen book, with lots of surprises and disfunctional characters. If you are looking for reality, forget it. If you want something to zip through your mind, turning it upside down and inside out for a while, look no further
    Great fun, all wonderfully narrated by Don Foote, who's slow presentation gives extra speed to the story. His voice, too, just captures the strangeness of it all and the underlying irritation felt by just about everybody.
    It is short and well read, it is humerous, fast paced and it is really quite crazy. A recommended read to really take you out of yourself
