adventure in babysiting

I have struggled to finish the last two packs of these books. which is sad, these were so good and a new take on the genre. however now its just the narrator carrying this series I see that there is another one out already and normally I'd be thrilled except for one thing,this book sucks now. it used to be something I could enjoy now it just feels like adventures in babysitting/making. I get it its nice and mushy. but hell man go to the romance section with that crap. now I'm gonna buy the next two series to see if you as an author can pull this book back from the brink. otherwise make it public domain and get a day job and raise a family cause clearly that's what you want.

Loads of fun

I’m on the road a lot and have really enjoyed listening to Bob and Nikki. These stories and narrator help pass the hours with highly creative plots and voices.

Excellent Performance, Great Book

There are a LOT of characters to keep track of and that can sometimes make it hard for people bad with names to keep things straight. the author is pretty good at giving you clues which is nice, but the performer always impresses me with his ability to give everyone including, and especially the bots. It breathes life into each character and makes them almost whole. Wish I could see an artist's rendition of the characters in high fidelity. My imagination runs wild, influencing how each bot might look. For instance, in my head, for some reason Sally seems to be shaped very speak like an upside down tear drop with a head and a hover body, even though I have no reason for it she seems to be very matrony like a robot Mary Poppins but in a bot form. Tax on the other hand seems like he would be more boxy, however, and would have a looseness about him that could be mistaken for lose firing parts but really speaks more to his ability.... I don't know where they're coming from but between the writing and narration this is the kind of thing I come up with. That being said cliffhangers are harsh and while the book ended satisfactorily it's not a great ending. I have the next two in print but will wait. I live the writing style, the fact that everyone 'says' stuff every time in the dialogs is interesting as some writers will leave off who is saying something if there are day only two people speaking to help the flow, since the performer gives so much life to the characters they could almost be omitted. the nice thing is the performer gets into a particular cadence with it and it flies very well. it only gets bad during staccato responses.
