Haha! This was so much fun! Why did I wait so long to give this a listen?!? Chip is such an interactive character. He’s always talking to me, the audience. He has a lot of cheek and often screams in terror. Luckily he has the much more down to Earth and competent Pete to get him out of trouble. Pete started off as a bit of a jock and I wasn’t too sure I would like him but he quickly grew on me.
Later on we get to know Tesla, yes the mad scientist, as a character. Don’t call him dude. He will correct you. Then there’s also Bobo, some weird alien thing that Chip befriends as he bumbles his way around the hallway of inter-dimensions. Bobo quickly picks up the middle finger salute, thinking it is some sort of greeting.
The ladies were noticeable in that they were largely absent. Chip often messages his girlfriend Julie and later on we meet the talented Meg but I found myself wanting a little more gender balance. That is my only quibble and I quite enjoyed this tale despite the lack of ladies.
The quest itself was full of fun. I love the way nearly everything is captured in a kind of journal form either through email messages or journal entries in Tesla’s newly rediscovered notebook. Chip, Pete, and Bobo kind of turn into modern-day superheroes. Luckily, they haven’t taken up wearing spandex.
The humor is what did it for me. It’s a mix of snark, slap stick, cursing, and absurd situations. This mix really worked for as I was never sure of what Chip would end up in next and how that would make me laugh. This is a very fun science fiction story with unique characters trapped in an absurd situation.
I received a free copy of this book.
The Narration: Rob Dircks isn’t just an entertaining author, he’s also great at narration. I loved his narration of his other book The Wrong Unit so I knew I was in good hands with this audiobook. Each character voice is distinct, his female voices are believable, and he puts so much life into the characters! All around, he’s just really great at this. There are no technical issues either – sound quality is perfect, no mouth noises, no repeated sentences or such. Great narration!
Hell Hath No Fury is a well-written and entertaining read. Despite a few phrases that were a bit out of place with time, Anders does a good job of setting the scene and drawing the reader in. We also get some suspense with our romance as the honorable Stephen and our fiery heroine, Cecily, work to manipulate Flavion, and it appears that someone is out to get rid of Cecily... Permanently. The chemistry between Stephen and Cecily can't be denied, even though Stephen's honor demands that he do just that and the banter between them adds some wit and fun to the story. With some characters we can love and some we can love to hate, this romance kept me turning pages to see if this pair would get their happy ever after and if the bumbling Flavion would get his just desserts.
Overall, this is a solid debut from Anders and I look forward to seeing what's next from this author.
Forget Me Never by Sable Hunter is an awesome book. Ms Hunter has given us a well-written book. I really enjoyed the characters in this story, they are phenomenal. Savannah and Patrick's story has lots of drama, humor, suspense and a touch of paranormal along with some sizzling sexy bits. I enjoyed reading Forget Me Never and look forward to my next Sable Hunter book. Forget Me Never is book 7 of the Hell Yeah! Series - Cajun Style but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
