I'm a bookworm of the highest caliber! If you see me, I'll probably be reading. There's nothing I love more than finding a good book, and then sharing it with the world!
Okay, now this was just pure fun! If more of this same unabashed, light-hearted and sarcastic humor is what I can expect from Molly Harper, sign me up. Not only did I plow through this audio book, I did it snickering the entire way through. Every little joke fit in perfectly. Nothing felt forced. Oh, this is the stuff that Urban Fantasy is made of.
Massive love goes to Jane Jameson for being the exact kind of heroine that I adore. She's lovable, kind of nerdy, has a massive passion for libraries, and a real problem with falling straight into trouble. I couldn't get over how easy she was to follow. I loved the fact that Jane wasn't perfect. Whenever characters automatically take to whatever paranormal fate befalls them, I always shake my head in disbelief. Who just becomes a vampire, nods, and thinks "Okay, this is easy!" to themselves? I saw myself in Jane. A confused, stubborn, and all around adorably awkward character. Perfection in my eyes.
Oh, and the jokes! The story alone quickly sucked me in. The idea of paranormal creatures being an acknowledged part of society was really cool, and I liked how easy it was to sink into. That being said, the little jokes here and there stole the show. If you put a character named Dick Cheney in your book, and then make the appropriate jokes to match? Well, you have my heart. Hook, line and sinker.
While I wouldn't say this was my perfect read, it was definitely up there! I absolutely recommend the audio book version if you have the time. The narrator was fabulous, expertly bringing every aspect of the tongue-in-cheek humor to life. I am not at all ashamed to say I snorted out loud a few times. This book was pure fun! I can't wait for more.
