Ava is definitely worth getting to know.

Where does That Ghoul Ava rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I haven't listened to a lot of audiobooks but out of the few that I have heard, this was near the top in terms of the story. I really didn't much care for the narrator's voice. She didn't seem to catch the right tone for the main character. Instead of sounding like an immature 32-year-old, she sounded like a dumb blonde teenager and I don't think that is what the author probably intended.

What was one of the most memorable moments of That Ghoul Ava?

The imagery presented when Ava was all naked under the self-serve car wash lights, being hosed down by a giggling seventeen-year-old all because she got splattered with vampire glitter dust. It actually made me laugh out loud it was so absurd, which was awesome. Oh, and dead children smelling like candy. Seriously, where does the author come up with this stuff?

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

I don't know that it did. The tense moments didn't seem all that tense the way the narrator read it. She just didn't resonate with the character. I think if I had read this book rather than listened to it, I would have had a more favorable opinion. There were also a couple parts where I imagine there was a break in the text to signify a new section was starting but when the narrator read it, those pauses weren't significant enough to instantly realize a new scene was starting so I had to consciously stop to think about what was happening, which then made me lose track of what I was listening to, and I had to go back thirty seconds just to listen to it again.

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

I did actually chuckle out loud a couple of times. Some of the things the author wrote (knowing he's a male writing a female main character) were humorous. I think the parts about Ava seeing her female anatomy on video and how she at one point crossed her arms in order to push her best attributes forward were pretty much right on the money as far as seeming like they came from a female perspective. I also liked Lisa's character, although sometimes she seemed to be the far more adult of the two even though she was a solid fifteen years younger.

Any additional comments?

I didn't realize at first that this was two separate stories in one so it was a little weird how in the middle (or what I thought was the middle but was actually the next story) the main character kept referencing stuff that had just happened (but really was from the first story). Now that I see that it was two separate stories, it makes a lot more sense. So just a word of caution to anyone else reading this before they listen to the story, it's not just unnecessary repetition, it's simply the back-story for those who hadn't heard the first story. I am really looking forward to listening to the next installment of Ava's story.

i love Ava

Would you listen to That Ghoul Ava again? Why?

i loved the Ava story; i found the dark humor amazing; i love everything that T.W. Brown does. There is nothing he could write that i wouldn't read/or listen to, his writing is fantastic.

Who was your favorite character and why?

They were all pretty hilarious, but i'd have to say Ava and her naivety was thoroughly comical.

What does Celia Aurora de Blas bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She made me fall asleep her voice was great it wasn't easy to listen to audiobooks it was like hearing a bedtime story from my mom..

If you could take any character from That Ghoul Ava out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Morgan she always seemed to be put out; and i found that so great. Her superiority over everyone else was so funny..

Any additional comments?

For anyone who thinks that this would be silly or not worth a read/listen i have news for you; it really is great; my husband loved it; i thought it was not going to be good; and then i folded and listened to the first one, and now i'm hooked..
