Nice Crochet Fiction

I liked this book as a crochet/comedy and less as a murder mystery. I crochet and found the feud between the knitters and crocheters to be funny. The women are clumsy detectives when they were concerned with the murders but the murder mystery seemed to take a back seat to character building and crocheting. It was a nice story but it didn't capture me enough to make me pick up the next one in the series.

Eh... This was okay. It was a free audiobook so I gave it a shot. There was nothing overly spectacular. Maybe I would have liked it more if I had read the other Mystic Bayou books first but that's not necessary to follow this story.

Wonderful! Can't wait for more

Stan Lee’s Alliances: A Trick of Light has it all: super heroes, unwilling sidekicks, vengeful aliens, secretive organizations and tech gone haywire. The audio book begins with an intro from Stan Lee which was beautiful to listen to his thoughts on the story to come. The story is an origin story of sorts as it develops the characters of Cameron, Nia and Juaquo. Cameron has an unusual accident which leaves him with cybertech abilities. The twists are somewhat unusual but keep it interesting. There are aspects of the story that remind me of Enders Game, Ready Player One, and Terminator. The ending is obviously left open since they have plans for more, but wraps up enough to be satisfying. While Yara Shahidi performs the audiobook wonderfully, it took me a bit to get into it since the main character is a Cameron and a majority of the story is from his perspective.

I enjoyed listening to this story which is told as a series of video journals. There were times where it wasn't really believable that a middle schooler was doing this but could easily been a high schooler instead. I liked the twists it remided me of some of the high school thriller movies from the 90s.

I picked this up because I love to listen to Ray Porter. The story is different but enjoyable. I normally don't like this type of book but the twists made it interesting.

Wonderful story and delightful to listen to

Another interesting story from Dennis E. Taylor. This was not as good as the Bobiverse but still very entertaining and a different take on some similar topics to Bobiverse. It was like reading a chess game where the stakes were the Human race. The performance by Ray Porter is, as always, incredible and I will gladly listen to this one again.

I enjoyed and loved the story. Modern and fun/nerdy references in a Sci-Fi that don't come across as lame was so great. I can't wait to start the second book and listen to the continuing stories of Bob. Ray Porter's performance was awesome.

This was a great story. While I picked it up because it sounded like a cyber thriller the romance parts of it were well done. China reminds me of combining Sheldon Cooper and Chuck and add in girly emotions. She's smart and relatable. Definitely liked the twists and turns.

Absolutely wonderful from start to finish

This is the best story I have heard ever. Bahni Turpin's performance was delightful. The story is fun and easy to follow. It felt like a combination of The Office and an Avengers comic. The human characters were interesting and relatable while the UltraHumans were larger than life but still had human faults.

This story had some issues and lagged at times. I almost stopped about half way but pressed on. I'm glad I did but I don't think I'll be getting the second one.
