Great Read

The Afton Morrison Series was a great Read by Brent Jones. This book consisted of the first four books in the series as well as a bonus short story; Go Home, Afton; See You Soon, Afton; Time’s Up, Afton; and A Book With No Pictures. This was a great series that followed Afton Morrison, a children’s librarian with a dark secret. I loved reading this series and can’t wait to read more by Brent Jones.

WOW!! Didn't see it coming...

No spoilers, just a wholehearted recommendation.
Superb narration! It was like listening to a radio-play. (Does anyone younger than my generation remember those?) Kristin James is stupendous (wish I could give her 6 stars, if not more) One person doing all those voices; she's just amazing.
And the story! I was not prepared for the ending. It twisted around and took me totally by surprise. I found myself replaying parts to better follow what seemed to be Afton's evolution. But was it? Had it been there all along and I missed it? I'll never look at librarians in quite the same way again. Thank you, Brent Jones, for a terrific story.

Fantastic

Brent Jones did an amazing job of putting us in the mind of a tortured soul and following her journey. Kristen James did a great job of bringing that soul to life. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a book a little on the darker side.

Thankfully, the entire series is included....

It is a very good thing that the entire series is included in one production because I don't think readers could handle waiting months to move from book to book. Brent Jones knows how to write a cliffhanger that left me listening for just one more reveal until I had the book finished in two days. Afton Morrison is a complex character - both kick-ass strong and vulnerable at the same time. Her relationships with her brother and her friends were equally complex. She cared deeply for the important people in her life but came across as sarcastic and unfeeling in her dealings with them. On one hand, Afton was this caring librarian that gave ice cream to a lonely boy, acted as mentor for a lonely teenager, and offered comfort to an assault victim. On the other hand, she was planning (and looking forward to committing) multiple murders but justifying them by only planning to kill BAD people.

Jones impressively uses foreshadowing to not only draw the reader ever deeper into the story, but he drops these clues that leave the reader thinking: what just happened? I never could have guessed all the twists and turns this book would take, but I certainly enjoyed Afton's wild and crazy journey to an end to her quest. However, it might only be an end for now because Jones definitely left the door open for future adventures for Afton.

The narrator, Kristin James, did an excellent job helping with the creepiness factor of The Afton Morrison Series. She fantastically portrays the various emotions of all the characters, and she really knows how to make the psychopaths sound all the crazier. Between Brent Jones prose and Kristin James narration, this book could join the ranks of Hitchcock Presents and The Twilight Zone. I highly recommend this audiobook and would definitely listen to another book with the author or the narrator.

Inside the Mind

Fascinating experience of being inside the mind of a tormented young woman looking for justice and vindication as she bumbles through life, work and relationships with a goal to shutting down some abusive criminals - forever. Uniquely stirring and unsettling in how the book so consistently captures the thoughts and perspectives of this young woman as she struggles with life.

An action-packed story

Homicidal librarian? Small town? Strong female lead? Yes, please! My favorite part of this series is internal struggle Afton has with wanting to kill. Trying not to spoil anything but once she embraces who she is, things get very interesting. Let’s just say she turns on the badass and it’s so cool to see. I also love the side characters. Jones did a fantastic job and letting us as an audience fall in love with them too. Kind makes me want a spin of series... 10/10 would recommend for those of use who love a bit of dark humor, strong female leads, and an action-packed story.

P.S. The voice actor for this series was so PERFECT!

I'm still thinking of Afton days later

I read the first book in the series which I bought on Kindle. The opportunity came to listen to the Audible books for an honest review I took it.

I really loved the first book, the author would telegraph various characters from books and TV shows and then bravely bring them up in the storyline. I love the authenticity of that as well as the added Easter eggs within the mystery.

Besides the BAU at the FBI who really knows what goes into the making of a serial killer or their thought process?
Brent Jones did a great job of giving us both. This is NOT a cozy mystery. It has strong language and violence that is proportional to the subject matter.

I overall was kept guessing (the point of any mystery) and becoming invested in many of the characters as their stories developed.
As an Audiobook, the narration and performance was very good. There was one voice/character that I really cringed when I heard the voice but that was keeping in line with that character.

After all 4 books I am thinking of Afton Morrison days later and still processing this series. That doesn't happen often. When it does, the author did a great job.

Overall a terrific and thrilling ride!!

Having read the entire Afton Morrison Collection, I was extremely excited to get my hands on the Audible version of it...

Well I can tell you I AM NOT DISAPPOINTED!! First I have to mention Kirstin James, she is INCREDIBLE!! I’m a singer, and I know about working your voice in and out of different keys. But WOW! What she does with her voice is mind boggling to me, it just blows me away!! She TOTALLY brought the characters that Brent wrote to life!! Afton, her character is important and she did her so perfectly! And OMG, Animus too!! I would plug my earbuds in at night sometimes and get so wrapped up in the story, that I ended up more than half the night. Bravo to her performance on every character!!

The entire Afton story. I love this story!! I love Afton and her messed up self. Her dark, twisted, murderous side and her loyal, caring, good hearted side. I’m an Afton FAN!! (Brent, we need T-Shirts or Mugs or something.) I love the whole Animus concept. And I love all the twist and turn and constant surprises. I wishes I could say more, because there’s a lot more I love. (OH, I love Twinkie!) But I don’t want to give too much away for new readers. But I will say that this is an AWESOME book, both to read and to listen to! Or do both, like me!!! I am really really hoping, FINGERS CROSSED, that there will be more Afton!! Maybe a spinoff, or something!!!

Highly Highly recommend this book if Psychological Thrillers are your thing!! I’m giving it as many stars as allowed, but it deserves stars upon stars upon stars!! You’re the best Brent, don’t stop writing!!

Great series

A wonderful story with dark secrets, murders and a lot of twists and turns. The characters were well written, and the narration kept me on the edge of the seat. I am glad I got the whole series in one boxset, so I didn't have to wait for the continuation.
The narrator was very good, keeping a great pace and adding to dark and suspenseful atmosphere.

Highly recommended.

There was always somebody watching, after all

Afton is a children's librarian. She doesn't like children. Then she doesn't .like anyone, other than her big brother. 'I like animals. People not so much,' she tells the readers in her first person recounting of her story, her thoughts, her fears and ideas. For Afton is a slightly unusual twenty something librarian - she wants to become a serial killer. At least, that is what her evil internal twin tells her.
The Afton Morrison Series is the compilation of the four books which make up a serial novel, comprising Go Home Afton, See you Soon, Afton, Nice Try Afton and I'll make you Pay. It is a strange mix of psychological drama, comedy, youthful angst, and rather unpleasant ideas mixed up in a plot which becomes increasingly bizarre and unreal as the book progresses.Think of an incompetent female Dexter who always manages to mess things (and people) up and you'd be partway there. There are many well written visual and visceral moments, with sweat, heat and dumpster smells competing with plently of blood. And it is a fun listen especially with Kristin James narrating. She is able to imbue the story with a mystery which draws in the reader, as well as a superbly over-the-top theatrical inner voice, simultaneously funny and chilling. Each of the characters voiced individually according to their natures (even if the majority of females seem to have high pitched girly girl voices - but then, they mostly deserved it). Hers was a truly astonishing performance.

I must confess to being somewhat torn in my liking for this book. Firstly, I have to say that I enjoyed it immensely, especially the first two sections which were darkly threatening as well as very funny. But although I continued to listen with great pleasure, I also couldn't help but wonder about the, let's say, morality of the third and fourth volumes as well as the totally unbelievable aspects which seemed too crazy even in the context. Everything just seemed to lose it's way in one big psychotic crazy. This is not a story for anyone adverse to swearing or nefarious arrangements.
That said, pleasure in the listening easily overcame my internal objections and if any more books are to follow, this reader will definitely be eager to discover what Afton does next. As a bonus, there is an additional short story, glimpsing Afton in her earlier librarian days, read equally well, if somewhat less dramatically, by Wyatt Baker, following a short note from the author, Brett Jones. My deep thanks to the rights holder who, at my request via Audiobook Boom, freely gifted me with a complimentary of of The Afton Morrison Series, books 1 - 4.. Great murderous fun.

A wasp in the fragile bottle of the mind.

We all at some point had thoughts of murder, be it revenge or because we are hurt, But gladly we all wake up and shake it off, but our lead Afton, seems to have opened the door and threw away the key. A mild mannered librarian, With a mind of Ted Bundy. The story has many faucets surrounding our heroine, (I cannot think of a better word) from rapes, to murders, to slaughter, to reading kids stories.
Were the life of Afton can go seems only one direction, something I will eagerly await.
Narrated in a naturally fluent paced manner that allows you to immerse in her life, with some memorable accent changes (though I did feel like adding a live electric cable to one heavily made up character)
A good read, and beginning of a long term relationship. Jim

Crazy dark fun for crazy dark people

The story is a good one, long and meandering, starting way back when Afton was born (possibly even before?), and has been left open for more Afton shenanigans.

Afton is a childrens' librarian with a few strange desires but also a love of true and proper Justice, not the farcical official version, and I love her for this, although it is definitely creepy to fantasise about killing people and I'm sure I'd not like that trait in a personal friend or family member, but killing the rapists, child abusers and drug dealers is a fairly reasonable (if not legal) way to handle a bloodlust such as Afton's. There are many confusing dream sequences throughout the book/s, they are a bit of a road map for Afton with signs for her (and the reader) to follow but they can be confusing although they are a highly entertaining part of the story.

Kristin James is absolutely perfect, her creepy voices are super creepy and her Tia and Kim voices evoke just the right images for the characters.

I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest unbiased review which I have given.
