What did you like best about Living with the Dead? What did you like least?
The story was great, probably much better if you read the book instead of listening
The worst part was the narrator...everyone sounded like a teenage girl so at times it got confusing as to who was talking and the men's voices? They didn't sound male I'm not sure what they sounded like but either way they were not good
How could the performance have been better?
Any additional comments?
Do the author of the books actually listen to the audible versions before they are released? I'm not sure how it works but after finally getting used to the narrator of the last few books (who was ok) she then switched to this person. Like other reviewers said everyone sounds like a 16 year old valley girl...hope sometimes has a New Jersey accent the voices are hard to distinguish from each other even the males the only reason I know who was who was because it said "hope" or "Robyn" before each chapter.,.and the worst most annoying part of it was calling Jamie Vegas "hamie" where does that even come from? This is why I question if the author actually listens to the books ...I love this series and will buy the next book on audible because I dnt have time to read it. I see its the same narrator so hopefully these problems will b fixed and I can enjoy the story more because i know its about the pack and jamie will be in it....but I would recommend if u have the time read the book you will prob like it better

Great Story brought down by terrible naration
I have been burning through this series enjoy each one more then the last, until now. This isn't the fault of the author, but the terrible narrator. This woman tried so hard to make male voices that all she did was destroy the narration, taking you out of the story. Her male voices sounded either drunk, mentally challenged, or like they smoked 4 packs of cigarettes every day. Add on to that the fact that she repeatedly miss-pronounced the name of Jamie Vegas. I have no idea how she got "Hamie" from Jamie, but she did. As I look forward to the rest of the series I am only filled with trepidation noticing that she is the narrator for the next few books also. I just wish a series could keep one narrator for the entire series.
As for the story. It was another great installment in this series with all the twists and turns that Kelley Armstrong is so great at creating. I love how she is able to give her characters depth and a well roundness that many authors lack. I feel like I know these characters as people. With faults, hopes and dreams. I would highly recommend this entire series to anybody.
In short, if you are debating reading or listening and don't care either way, Then read this book. Don't skip this one either way...just be forewarned.
