Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author Gail Carriger, writing as G. L. Carriger, brings her comedic voice to contemporary fiction and m/m romance.

Alex, marine biologist and werewolf, has seen better days. Unexpectedly alive, secretly gay, and haunted by a meddlesome, matchmaking ghost, he must now team up with very flirty mermen to save the city from sushi smugglers - and he still can't get a date.

A full cast of science-fiction and fantasy luminaries join together to bring Gail Carriger's short and sweet LGBTQ love story to life with full production audio by ArtisticWhispers Productions and original score by composer Danny Schade.

This is the prequel to The Sumage Solution.

Delicate sensibilities? This audiobook contains confused lovelorn werewolves and very pretty ex-Goth mermen who are exclusively interested in each other. May also contain fish, Irish mafia, and a shocking lack of tea.

Good, but a heads up...

It's a good short story that serves as a prequel for the San Andreas Shifters series with Alex and Marvin.

BUT there are a huge amount of sound effects and background noises and music and voice tuning including screams that can be annoying, startling, and overshadow the vocal performance.

Seems a little stilted?

Seems a little stilted or blocky? Good story though, very cute. I will definitely continue the story though because it did have enough to keep me wanting more.

Check pronunciation!!!!!

Ok so I liked this book but the pronunciation of “Marin” is wrong throughout (not a hard “a”, it’s m-ah-rin)-considering I live in Marin County, it drove me nuts. It’s seems kinda basic production to make sure the places are pronounced correctly.

A true delight

Marvin knows what he wants, contrast with Alec in his denial and antics ensue. Cute as! light and fluffy and fun in all the right ways. I cant wait to see what happens next.

Marine Biology by Gail Carriger

Marine Biology by G L Carriger
Prequel to the San Andreas shifters series.
Paranormal M-M novella.
Funny and sarcastic. A werewolf pack, mermen, a selkie and ghost. Quite a cast of characters.

I had no knowledge of the series so to me this was a short shifter story setting up some world building. Easy to follow and laugh at the intended humor throughout.
I listened to an amusing audio version which was done by a variety of performers with sound effects.

Loved the story

I really enjoyed the story itself but full cast recordings aren't really my thing. The performances were ok, nothing special IMO.

Bad 80's audio drama

Story is great. Performance is cheesy and wooden, like a dated children's alternative media thing with stock sound effects. I am used to Audio books, I don't need animal noises and creaking doors in the background to get atmosphere. Many good actors/actresses have demonstrated how to do this well. This is not it.

Enjoyable Story

The story is amusing and a prologue to a great series, I personally don't like the performance style though, but that's just me.

Prefer single narration

Having lots of people narrating together didn't work for me. I would have preferred one narrator with the skill to differentiate all the voices.

A fab novella, brilliantly brought to life. Highly recommended!

While I'd read the ebook of this story previously, this audiobook version is a full cast recording made by Artistic Whispers, and so literally brought the story to life. I really enjoyed listening to it, and their use of appropriate foley, sound effects and background music really enhanced it. I'd definitely recommend the audiobook to all Gail Carriger lovers (as long as they're OK with M/M relationships) and similar supernatural book lovers. I'm looking forward to listening to the next book in the series.

Loved this

I loved it. As soon as I finished listening to this audiobook, I listened to the book again. I enjoyed the full cast dramatization and the story made me laugh.
I have most of Gail Carriger’s books in both kindle and audible formats, and enjoy listening to all of them.
