This book was nicely written but seemed to skirt it's subject. It could have been so much more but it just kind of fizzled out.
"Better than book 11..... just"
I Love love love Sookie Stackhouse books. But I probably should have stopped reading them around book nine or ten. There was a lot of "i brushed my hair......I went to the library......I went to the store...." what I call feel is filler fluff to pad the story out. It's not like there were any reason to include so many mundane details, they weren't relevant, but they went on and on and on and on......
"Not on my wavelength"
I love a bit of super-natural fiction. I've also enjoyed a few russian books lately. But I really struggled to concentrate on this book. I found the whole 'Twilight' concept muddling and just didn't click with this book.It was well written and not cheesey, I liked the concept of light and dark but found the execution confusing.
"STOP the annoying music please!"
not a bad story, reminded me of Mary Jane Staples books that my Nan always liked so much. But I was driven mad by the awful music which was intersperced between sections. It would be undertandable if it were between chapters but sometimes it seemed to slice straight through a paragraph.
The narrator did a good job though, the accents were very good.
If you've read a lot of Jodie Picoult you may want to sick this one. As a story on it's own it's good and it makes you think and typical to Picoult you don't necessarily like the characters or agree with them. However the whole thing had a real deja-vous feel to it. It had a very same old same old feel to it. So like her other work, I'm sure I won't be able to distinguish it in my memory in a few months.
If you are a lover of the Sookie Stackhouse - True Blood books, you'll love this!
It's funny, refreshing and made me smile. It's nowhere near as ermmm.... 'adult' or 'naughty' as the Charlaine Harris books but a good listen. I really liked the narrator, she has a great voice and accent. I listened to the whole book in three days (whilst doing house-work) and have just downloaded the next one which I'm looking forward to.
"Great story, well told"
I can only say I loved this audio-book. The narators brought this story to life in a way that made me feel I was watching a movie.
The story is powerful, funny and moving. The characters were women you want to spend time with. I laughed and cried listening to this. I listened whilst at my desk and I can tell you I've never been so eager to get to work as I was during the 18 hours of listening this gave me.
