Where does Deadly Messengers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This audiobook was another interesting experience with Anne Johnstonbrown, i think it is my favorite by her voice. I enjoyed listening to the book and remembering details of the story and feeling all the emotions all over again. Hearing the story made all the scenes seem more vivid and real and more intense.

Which character – as performed by Anne Johnstonbrown – was your favourite?

My favorite character is definitely Kendall Jenning. She was when i first read the book and she remained such after hearing it. Anne Johnstonbrown did a really ood job with her, i could almost see her.

Any additional comments?

The voices for all the other characters were also really good, it was a bit odd with Lance O'Grady, i imagined him differently but still it was interesting to listen to him! Again Ms Johnstonbrown did a good job narrating a really good book!

Bus driver Rory Fine has a gift. With selfless thought, he uses his unique power to relieve others troubles with a mere touch. This brings him great joy, until one rain-swept night when he offers to lift every passenger’s spirits. He asks them to play a game by tapping his palm when they disembark and leave their worries behind with him. Someone aboard, though, hides a deadly and dangerous secret, and this kind act will drag Rory into a perilous battle with a powerful, evil entity.

Where does The Troubles Keeper rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

it is among the best audio books i have listened to so far.

What did you like best about this story?

I was already familiar with the story. but i enjoyed listening to the original plot and the interesting characters. The mix of fantasy, science fiction and romance was what i liked the most in this book. The idea of Trouble Keeping, mixed the presence of an odd serial killer was fascinating.

What about Steve Marvel’s performance did you like?

It was really good. I liked how he voiced Rory Fine, the changes he made in the intonations to signal different charaters and emotions. I liked the performance very much. And many times i found myself smiling, without being aware of it, at Rory Fine and his thoughts.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I was a little bit distracted at the beginning, but then it became harder to stop listening. I felt more drawn to the characters, more concerned about them and feeling sorry to leave them behind when i had to stop listening.

Any additional comments?

I felt that the voice of Rory Fine was like i imagined it, it fit him and his character very well.
