I had no idea what to expect from this book. What I got was a wonderfully well written, humorous, sometimes grossly detailed, fairy tale styled short story. LOVED IT. The trio made up of the authors and the reader is unsurpassed! Enjoy and be prepared to laugh!!

I can’t recognize Gabaldon’s touch in this book. I can’t get past the opening scene. Ms Tanner does a good job with a boring text, however, it’s just way too tedious to keep me engaged.

Amusing Story

Short and amusing story. Sort of a zombie parody. The word grimace was used frequently and the narrator just could not say the word correctly. She kept saying gri-MĀCE with the emphasis on the second syllable and a long A, rather than GRÏ-mäce. It was rather disconcerting and detracted from the narration. Is this really how the British say the word?

Not What I Expected But Okay

What made the experience of listening to Humane Killer the most enjoyable?

The narrator was good and made the characters interesting. I don't guess I care for fantasy like this. I bought it because of Diana and her son but it isn't a story type that I like.

Would you recommend Humane Killer to your friends? Why or why not?

No. I think most of my friends would not like it.

Which character – as performed by Jill Tanner – was your favorite?

I liked the sorcerer but really none of the characters grabbed me. I found that it didn't really matter to me what happened to any of them. I was glad to see the dragon didn't die.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Nothing extremely good or bad. I'll try another book by Sam Sykes.

Didn't grow on me

This story just didn't hold my attention...Although I really wanted to support my favorite author and her son... Perhaps I just need to hear it again...
