All of Molly Harper’s audiobooks, including this one, are narrated by Amanda Roncini. Her voice is perfect fo..Show More »r the part. It’s light, slightly scratchy, not particularly accented – faintly tinted with something vaguely Southern. Amanda Roncini does a great snarky voice for a snarky Mo, and she’s able to pull off the punch lines just right.
What sets Molly Harper’s writing apart from the typical urban fantasy/paranormal romance novel is her uniquely comedic voice. If you’re familiar with her Jane Jameson series, this will come as no surprise. If you’re not, don’t drink anything while listening to this audiobook. Consider yourself warned. Naked Werewolf relies mostly on hyperbole and absurd juxtaposition. Mo’s parents aren’t just aging hippies – they own an organic vegan farm. Mo’s mom refused to go to her college graduation because it would be giving into the man. Mo’s mom once walked in on Mo and a guy getting it on, and instead of walking out, she started lecturing the couple on the positives of tantric sex. Mo’s mom isn’t just overbearing, she calls Mo up at 3 a.m. every year on Mo’s birthday to re-tell the story of her water birth in graphic detail. Something Mo’s college roommates really appreciated. If you’re an avid listener in the genre, you’re used to audiobooks that start out with a bang, hook you in the action, keep you guessing, and take all-together a very short amount of time. Not so with Naked Werewolf. If you read the blurb summary from audible or amazon, you’ll know the foreshadowed pivotal event is Mo “find[ing] a naked guy with a bear trap clamped to his ankle on [her] porch.” That scene comes 3 hours into the 9 hour book (about a 1/3 of the way, for those of you who can’t do fractions). Naked Werewolf spans over a full, entire year. It doesn’t take away from the action because, frankly, there’s not a lot of action.
Molly Harper has done it again with this witty story of hard-ass Maggie. She thinks she's the big, bad she-alpha, until she get knocked on her sometim..Show More »es furry butt by the gorgeous Nick Thatcher, the HUMAN who wants to tell the world that he has found a real live werewolf. I love Molly's stories. Her snarky, witty sense of humor is a great escape when things get tough and I need a laugh. I never even hesitate to hit the "add to cart" button when I see a new book by Molly, and it is a real pleasure to find Amanda Ronconi's name a the narrator. I think Amanda does a great job of portraying the characters Molly Harper has written for us to enjoy. Thank you Audible for bring us Molly Harper.
NOTE: Do not eat or drink when listening to Molly Harper's books unless you enjoy snorting your snack out of your nose when you start laughing. I am telling you from personal experience. Also a full bladder is another thing you want to stay away from before reading.......need I say more?
