Very real account of the battle to obtain decent housing in America and the exploitation of the poor.

Would you consider the audio edition of His Name Is John to be better than the print version?

I'm not sure that the audio edition could be considered a better experience. The narrator had a unique rhythm to his reading that was somewhat distracting at times. After 30 minutes or so I'd grown used to it and was able to follow the story. Honestly, I liked the story so much I will probably buy the print versions of the others just to finish the series!

What did you like best about this story?

I'm a sucker for ghost stories, but I also loved that the romance developed seamlessly without taking away from the plot of the mystery. Elliot and Steve didn't fall madly in love at first sight. Elliot questioned his sanity when he heard John's voice, who wouldn't?

Dorien Grey has a plays with language in a way that most writers only attempt and usually awkwardly. The remarkable descriptions of physical locations and the characters emotions will definitely have me buying another Eliot Smith mystery.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Jim Hickey?

I would not seek out a book narrated by Jim Hickey, but I would not avoid a book that he narrated either. I have listened to hundreds of audiobooks and there have been some that I have not finished because of the narration. That was definitely not the case here, but the rhythm was somewhat unusual.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I really enjoyed the way John's identity was slowly revealed not only to the reader, but also to John.

Any additional comments?


I listened to the audio version of His Name is John. I have to say that I really enjoyed the story a great deal and that I definitely look forward to reading the rest of the series! Not many people can use language as well as Dorien Grey and I found the characters engaging.

I loved the manner in which Elliot's relationship with Steve developed as it didn't take away from the focus of the story which was figuring out John's actual identity. My only issue was that the narrator took some getting used to. I have listened to hundreds of audiobooks and there have been some that I have not finished because of the narration. That was definitely not the case here, but the rhythm was somewhat unusual. Overall, I really enjoyed the experience and will listen to it again!

Would you listen to Finding Zach again? Why?

I will definitely listen to Finding Zach again! Although there are definitely some difficult issues in the book, they were handled beautifully! This is one of the best listens I've experienced so far!!

What other book might you compare Finding Zach to and why?

I think the only book that comes to mind would be Promise Rock by Amy Lane. The characters are flawed in similar ways and you pull for them just the same.

What does Paul Morey bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

The narration was flawless throughout. Nothing is more distracting than listening to a serious heart-wrenching scene to hear a word mispronounced. It's very difficult to overlook.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did my best to listen to this all at once. It's THAT good.

Should've Been a Cowboy audiobook cover art

Story is fine, but narration kills the experience.

I don't buy Harlequin Blaze subscription with the expectation of anything, but mindless entertainment with interesting and amusing characters if somewhat predictable. This title delivers that, but the odd pauses and numerous mispronunciations made by this narrator nearly forced me to delete the title and pay for it again on my Nook.

A welcome visit back to Caldwell! This was an enjoyable listen due to a good story and fantastic narration. The set-up was a little slow, but once it got going, I found it difficult to find a good place to stop! Ward has created more strong male characters that obviously have more going on than can be revealed in one book. While that creates a desire to snatch up the next installment, the stories of Vin & Marie-Therese are wrapped up tidily!
