Violance, Vampires, and Guns
Who was your favorite character and why?
Edward, Edward was a complete bad ass.
What does Kimberly Alexis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The performance was ok. but the story is great.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes I wanted to listen to it straight through but sleeping gets in the way of things like that.
Any additional comments?
This is a great series for the first 6 or 7 books but then they just kinda go down hill from there.

The narrator is good, the story is okay. There was something I didn't care for, maybe because I like the vampire stories where the vampires aren't creatures from hell. I would read the second book, but I am not dying to download it, but will if I run out of others. I guess I was expecting more of a Sookie Stackhouse type novel, and it is not!

Ughh! I LOVE this book. Love the characters. But Kimberley Alexis has to be the worst narrator in the audio book business. Accents are terrible, inflection is off and doesn't match the dialogue. There's no difference between the thoughts of Anita and her speech. For some reason Ronnie sounds like she's a character in Fargo. All the men sound like women. Didn't even try to change her pitch.
I recommend the book and the series highly. Get them on kindle or paper. Don't waste your credits like I did on this audio book.

Fantastic storyline. Great characters. Suspenseful fiction. Great selection for a book club starter! Excited to move further into the series.
I love everything this author produces. The performance was good.
I am impatient to get the rest of the series.
“AUDIBLE 20 REVIEW SWEEPSTAKES ENTRY"
what is not to love about a feisty heroine, especially ones that kill the things that go bump in the night, animate the dead, but sleep with a stuffed penguin?
This first book introduced an interesting and faceted array of characters, and unlikely bedfellows.
Marvelously performed :)
I'm am Anita Blake fan reexperiencing the novels through audio. The story is great, obviously. The awkward music effects have got to go, they are loud and obnoxiously distracting. The narrator is a bit over the top, but creative enough that I like it. I'm hoping that the production team did better in the next books, and I'll be continuing to listen.
The reader sounds like a robotic Barbie, emotionless and stuck in the 80s. Infomercial-like. Her voice conveys no sense of character or point of view. It's heavily interfering with my enjoyment of the book as I reimagine how each sentence could be read better.
I absolutely loved this book. I must listen for vampire slayer fans. So glad I started the series.
I am really enjoying this audiobook so far. I am enjoying the way the narrator, Kimberly Alexis, is taking me on this journey through Anita's eyes.
