Ms. Hollie’s performance is just.. wow! I just have no words. It’s been amazing listening to this and I’m sure I’ll be re-listening as I have done for past books!

This was a amazing to listen to something different yet fitting for the start of flotilla. Ms. Claire did an amazing job nailing how the characters would be and how they speak that it almost sounds like a movie to me. There are some tiny things that can be improved like how the men would speak but I can’t really hold that against this because the rest were fine. Give this a good listen while you drive or do some cleaning then you’re all set!

Okay I really like this VA and I think she is perfect for Fin! I like the tone of her voice and how she really gets into the scene! The story itself was amazing and with this VA it made listening to it a blast!

I really enjoyed this one I think Miss Voller has done quite a remarkable job with with her performance and I liked how she gave the characters different types of hmmm what's the word I'll just go with oomph. That gave the characters life. I'm looking forward to the next installment

Would you listen to Soras again? Why?

of course i would listen again! I love Ms Hollie's performance once again as she breathes life into the characters. giving them their unique personalities.

Who was your favorite character and why?

hmmm... I have to say... Mother Ranelle. she has this kickass and playful personality that just keeps you engaged and laughing.

What about Hollie Jackson’s performance did you like?

I love that she gives each character their own personality which shines through in her performance. I like the attention to detail when it come to accents. I can see or rather hear that she really worked hard on this

If you could take any character from Soras out to dinner, who would it be and why?

oh my such a forward question... hmm if i were to pick one i would have to say... hmm... i can't seem to pick just one. Bex cause i want to learn more about his inventions and maybe we won't even eat dinner we'll just be tinkering with inventions. Laney cause I feel she would be really good company along with her wife Celeste. there's Sylvia who is also amazing. the children, because they are super cute! Dru because hey we might check out the waitress together. a conversation with Mother Udele would be super interesting too since i have a bunch of questions about the magik they have. Mother Ranelle because she's super fun! gah! so many characters i want to have dinner with! i can't just pick one, that is impossible!

Any additional comments?

please give this a listen to. the performance really is amazing and the story is something different and very enjoyable. 10/10 would listen again

Get it? A whole new world? Cause it's about genies and wishing... no? Okay then. Ahem. Hmm how best to describe this... the story is amazing as always. The story of one angel and her little mouse as they they try not to get killed or captured by evil baddies while also dealing with the fact of a centuries old curse that is tied to angel in some way. (Trying not to give spoilers here) the voice acting is... different. Not bad at all I have just been used to one voice throughout the other books and hearing a different one, well my brain had to re-adjust. The performance itself really isn't bad and I thoroughly enjoyed the voices and accents. I think the narrator did a remarkable job with this one. So give it a hear and a read and enjoy :D

Would you consider the audio edition of Fixit to be better than the print version?

considering i love reading and listening to books,I can't really compare the two in this way. I love reading the words taking my time to enjoy the scenery. I also love listening especially if the VA's bring something new to the stage. is it better? in some regards but I still love both platforms.

What did you like best about this story?

which to pick... I love a lot of stuff in this story the characters, the scenes. the adorable pingers! i would really like to see more, especially scenes with Vega and Vashon! can't wait for more

What about Hollie Jackson’s performance did you like?

oh man! everything! her voice just sounds perfect for Narrating and how she brings emotion is something else.

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

I did listen to it in one sitting! it is that good!

Any additional comments?

I thoroughly enjoyed both reading and listening to this book and I'm sure you will too. this gets reader's seal of approval

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Of course I would, this story is very adorable that it's just too cute. someone doing everything they can to know everything about the other that she would learn an entire language. it a sweet romance story and I definitely recommend it to anyone

What was one of the most memorable moments of Wallflower?

hmmm... aside from when Lee finally got Amber's name? it has to be when Lee admitted to her best friend katy about her sexuality and she didn't even bat an eye. I hope I have friends as awesome as her, being a lesbian myself it's comforting to think that some people can be like that.

Have you listened to any of Hollie Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

well I have listened to this one so long ago I have just not realized I haven't reviewed it yet but yeah this one is definitely with her other works. I really don't know how she can do the different tones of her voices, I wish i knew.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

hmmm this is hard maybe... "A silent encounter that changed their lives" yea i think i'll go with that.

Any additional comments?

what to say... hmm.. well the story is great and the audio is beyond expectation. Overall a great audiobook to listen to. you will not regret buying it. or you know using a credit, enjoy listening

Reviewed: 10-04-16

What did you love best about A Little Favor?

I have a soft spot for war stories, be it old ones or newer ones. this one was set in the beginning and end of WW2. I love the character and her spunk, basically I love all of it, it's short which makes me want more of it! I could read an entire novel of this story and not get bored.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Little Favor?

Let's see... there are a lot and I don't want to be spoiling potential readers and listeners. I loved the ending of it and I cried a little because of it. one memorable line would be the one about a Hanky Panky hahaha! *clears throat* sorry I just can't seem to read that phrase and not laugh or giggle.

Which scene was your favorite?

again I don't want to be spoiling people. The last scene definitely and also the one where Jillian was going to Emily's room and the Matron of the dormitory looked at her and allowed her to come because she was a woman and only men weren't allowed in the dorms so they won't steal the "virtues" of the women under her care. I was snickering in that part.

Who was the most memorable character of A Little Favor and why?

Jillian, well mostly because she was the main character, but also because of her personality and spunk. a nice gal with a fast wit to match.

Any additional comments?

I was a little weirded out that it was not Hollie Jackson who was narrating the book since i had gotten so used to her voice by now in Erik Schubach's book. But I have to tell you Ms. Allyson did an amazing job of Narrating this one and I love her accents. if you are used to Ms. Jackson's voice you will feel something different, but I assure you that it is a good different.

Where does Five Feet or Less rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

If I were to pick a rank it would definitely be at no. 2, karaoke queen being no.1, But this one came close i'll tell you that. the emotions that it gave me were something that i couldn't explain. whenever I would read the book it never fails to make me bawling like a child. the character development was something else. and now to hear it, with such a talented narrator, I cried so much as I did with Karaoke Queen.

What other book might you compare Five Feet or Less to and why?

I don't think I can compare this book to another. each book has an element of uniqueness to it and by simply comparing two books to one another makes it seem more of a competition rather than simply enjoying the wonderful stories, the artists put down. this book is unique in it's own right, a hurt/comfort story, with something more in between.

Which character – as performed by Hollie Jackson – was your favorite?

In this book specifically I loved how she voiced Sara's Mom, Anne. I loved the deep and spunky voice Hollie had given her and the way she talked was amazing, especially the scene with the phone.

Who was the most memorable character of Five Feet or Less and why?

Reese of course, other than the fact that she is the main character. I loved the fact that she is strong and that strength helps her each day to continue on. I love that she can feel weak, because everyone, and I mean EVERYONE needs a break sometimes and to let others help them in that weakness, it gets tiring holding the weight of the world on your shoulders all the time, a little rest is not bad.

Any additional comments?

As I've said on the Headline, remember to bring tissues because this is one hell of a ride. Five feet or less is something different, and unique. The characters have their own personalities and color that they are not boring and bland. If you've read the book, I recommend you to listen to this because if reading the book made you cry, then listening to it would be a different story. and If you haven't read the book, then what are you waiting for? if you enjoy a good read with loads of emotions then make sure to pick up Five Feet or Less.
