This has got to be a first draft. It reads as if no one proof read this book. It has too many contradictions like 2 different people wrote the book with no communication. The narrator was horrible. She added emotion where emotion didn't need to be. She used inflection when it was not needed. I hated the way she broke up the sentences instead of reading straight through.
I don't understand why this book got so many 4 stars. There was nothing I like except that it was not tat long.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If the book had some periods here and there. It was like she never took a breath. The story was all over the place.

What do you think your next listen will be?

??

How could the performance have been better?

If she would have read the book with some emotion and at least gave some notice that the chapter had changed or the conversations had moved on. I got so lost.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was disappointed

Would you try another book from Brenda K. Davies and/or Tavia Gilbert?

Not sure But I do know I will not be finishing the rest of these book. I think if Sara was a stronger character and not so whiny all the time It would have been ok. The story line was good. It had potential.

What was most disappointing about Brenda K. Davies’s story?

Sara was a insecure brat. Her best room mate was too possessive for me.

Which character – as performed by Tavia Gilbert – was your favorite?

Micheal

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Running and hiding is looked upon as a way out for the weak. It is something Omar never thought he would do. As a child, he didn't even play hide-and-seek for that very reason. Unfortunately, after being sentenced to death by his cousin, Demarcus, Omar was left with no choice. Moving to Detroit wasn't as bad as he thought it would be. It didn't take long for him to reign supreme. The change of location didn't change his conniving and coldhearted ways, however.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Yes if the narrator had not been changed. I really enjoyed the 1st book.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not sure but it will not be anything read by Kim Johnson. I have returned all books I got read by her.

What didn’t you like about Kim Johnson’s performance?

She's boring and makes it really hard to stay interested even if it is a good book. You can't go from Nicole Small whom I love to K. Johnson.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointed I couldn't get past the first chapter.

Any additional comments?

Please have Nicole Small redo this one. I would love to finish the story.

For most, a plane crash means the end of life. For Dusti Dawson, it's just the beginning...Dusti and her sister Batina survived the crash, thanks to a couple of brothers who are equal parts menacing and muscled. She'd be grateful...if they hadn't turned out to be delusional kidnappers, who believe Dusti's grandfather is some monstrous halfbreed creature bent on murder. Turns out Vampires, Lycans, and Gargoyles do exist - and they've been crossbreeding to form two hybrid races.

What would have made Drantos better?

If Dusty and her older sister were not so irritating. They just wined too much and complained too much. They made me dislike them.

What was most disappointing about Laurann Dohner’s story?

The sister's weakness and there ability to over react over everything. They were too mouthy.

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

no

What character would you cut from Drantos?

The sisters

Any additional comments?

I'm not reading the rest of the stories in the series.

What would have made Purple City, Volumes 1-3 better?

What was most disappointing about K’wan’s story?

The narrator. I could not even get into the story. She was horrible. No depth,no emphasis on the words. Some parts she sounded like a 7th grader.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

There were parts I just missed she didn't even hold my attention.

What character would you cut from Purple City, Volumes 1-3?

I would cut everybody. I couldn't even get a feel for anybody.

Please don't use her again. Where was Cary Hite or Honey Jones even Shari Peele she was ok.

What disappointed you about The Orphans?

The narrator. I would love to listen to more from Mike Evans but he uses this same narrator a lot!

What could Mike Evans have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Have someone else with more personality less emotion reading. I liked his voices for each character but his regular voice was to excited throughout the book. He made it hard to take the story serious. I could not get into it at all

Would you be willing to try another one of Jack Wallen, Jr.’s performances?

No

What character would you cut from The Orphans?

Not sure I couldn't get to know any of them well enough because I didn't feel like the narrator was representing the characters as they were suppose to be.

There was some emotional parts but they were lost on me because of the yes you guessed it "Narrator".

Any additional comments?

I wish he could have them reread.

It seemed like it's a good story but I could not focus on listening.

Army Ranger and Afghanistan war vet Scratch Sullivan has adapted well to the zombie apocalypse. Or as well as can be expected, considering that society has collapsed, the population is decimated, and Scratch hunts monsters for a living. But hey, at least he's still living. Thing is, Scratch is happy enough with the odd job killing THEM and occasionally shacking up with his on-and-off girlfriend, Kara. But when Scratch is tipped off to a potential undead incursion into the safe zone he protects, he's forced to head straight into the heart of the deadlands.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would let them know first that theirs a lot of background noise!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Bobbie and Gabby because they were strong fighters and could carry the story themselves if they needed too

What three words best describe S. W. Salzman’s voice?

his voice was ok but "too much background"

Did THEM: Incursion inspire you to do anything?

No

Any additional comments?

The sound effects were louder then the narrator im sure I missed a lot.

Brian Roy is a ghost hunter extraordinaire. His latest adventure involves headless Japanese soldiers wreaking havoc in a New Hampshire church. The stats are grisly. Two boys blinded. Another boy shot. Cops killed. The bodies keep piling up and the ghosts' thirst for vengeance is as insatiable as their thirst for saké! The phantom soldiers cut a swath of murder through the congregation until all that's left of Brian's local allies are Jim Bogue and his grandfather, Luke Allen, who is a blind marine vet.
