Love the book, but hate the Sound Effects!

One of my favorite series (at least the first ten books), but the sound effects are way off and come up at odd times and seem to be destracting rather than add to the story. The narrator is okay, not my favorite, but not horrible either.

A really really bad book. I want my credit back!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would not recommend this to a friend. The heroine has such low self esteem; she tries to be to be tough and it comes off as a joke. I picked this one in hope it would be comparable to my beloved Sookie Stackhouse books, but not even close! I honestly didn't even finish the book. It lingered too long on the very gory death of a 4 year old. It had very, very strong details of he and his family's death. I'm no angel, and have read lots of gory and sexy books, but this book was gross. I wish I hadn't wasted a credit on this book. I am waiting for my Feb. credit so I can listen to Hunger Games #2. Waste of time, and I hate to be so judgmental, but even the narrator sucked. Sorry :(

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Gory death of a child, heroine acting tough but vomiting and shaking through out the whole book. Glad she carries a gun because maybe she'll turn it on herself. K that was mean, but this sucks really!

Did the narration match the pace of the story?


Could you see The Laughing Corpse being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

If the Laughing Corpse was made into a TV series I would nominate Susan Boyle as the main character .Or some other lame ass.

Any additional comments?

I want my credit back!!!!
