Surprisingly good

So . . . my wife made me listen to this with her on a long road trip, and I actually grew to like it, so I'm writing this review - also, because she's making me do it. I think the narrator was excellent. I REALLY liked the way she did the voices of the kids. Really believable. This isn't my genre of choice, but it was good. There. I said it. Thumbs up!

Blown Away!

If you could sum up The Orphans of Race Point in three words, what would they be?

Epic, Mysterious, Romantic

Have you listened to any of Cobb Amanda’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This narrator was terrific. I have listened to other books by her, but I think she is really coming into her own and doing more precise character voices which is really fun to hear. So great with the Portuguese! And shifting narrators? Points of view? Children's voices!? That takes skill, man. Awesome!

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

I admit that I teared up once or twice, but I felt more outrage at the brutality of the circumstances. And the father with the kid at the end!? How could the daughter still be so nice to him!?? ARGH.

Any additional comments?

Great ride. It sucked me in.

Awesome Ride

If you could sum up River Road in three words, what would they be?

Who Done It

What was one of the most memorable moments of River Road?

Where they found the body the first time was pretty cool, but I don't want to give it away!

Which scene was your favorite?

I liked the gun battle at the winery, and I also really liked the way they did the scene when Mason got poisoned. It was like a movie sequence.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

It was more murder mystery than moving, but I like how the characters kept coming together and joking about their relationship until it got serious.

Any additional comments?

I don't know who wrote the review about not liking the narrator, but I thought she was really good. I liked how she did all the voices, and I thought the intimate scenes were especially well done. It wasn't corny.

Good Narrator

If you could sum up Beautiful Danger in three words, what would they be?

Vampires Knights Werewolves

What did you like best about this story?

The kevlar ... and the literal insanity.

Have you listened to any of Amanda Cobb’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

A few of them. She's great. Hope to hear more things in different genres though.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Cool Witches and Wicked Faeries

If you could sum up The Vampire Hunter in three words, what would they be?

Fun, Sexy, Suspenseful

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Vampire Hunter?

When Kaz finally discovers who the one-fanged vampire is -- that's pretty great.

What about Amanda Cobb’s performance did you like?

I liked that she doesn't have a high pitched voice. And she does all the characters and accents very well. I still had fun listening even hours and hours into it. I kinda got hooked.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Zoe finds out that she might lose everything and that she really loves Kaz. She seems feisty and flirtatious at first, but then we see how vulnerable she really is.

Any additional comments?

I hope Ms. Cobb does the next one. IS there another one?
