Open iTunes to Buy
Published almost 10 years ago, Guilty Pleasures marked the debut of a writer who was destined to grow from cult favorite to a major best-selling author. Now, for long-time Anita Blake aficionados and newfound fans, Guilty Pleasures makes its debut in downloadable audio. Listeners will learn how Anita Blake started raising the dead - and killing the undead. And how she met Jean Claude, the master vampire destined to become not only her biggest nemesis but her greatest lover.
These books are really addictive. Too bad Itunes has a huge gap missing. Where are the books in the middle? Do they really think we want to listen to the first 4 and then have to buy 5 thru 10 on paperback so that we can then listen to 11 after reading the others. Some of us listen to books because we don't have the time or we retain more by listening than ready!
Wonderful Book, Awful Choice of Narrator
I got this in hopes that I would love it as much as I love the series. I've been hanging onto the series for dear life because I love the characters and the first book will always have a place in my heart. This audio version broke my heart. I'm sure this narrator has done some great work but this was horrible. This was a book that should have been done with multiple narrators, no doubt about it. Her inflections were flat and there was minimal differences between female characters. I almost screamed when I heard her take on Jean-Claude. There was nothing warm, sensual nor touchable in the voice. It was.. scary. It was the voice of a slimy over-done creep. It wasn't French it was toned as some one from Spain, slight lisp and all. As I said, I'm sure she does well otherwise but this was not the project for her. I will not get any more of these unless it is a different individual. If you love this series, save your ears.
A MUST READ! DON'T MISS IT!!
I read this book not expecting too much. Boy, was I surprised. I LOVED it. I would recommend it to anyone who likes vampire novels with a little extra. Jean Claude is now my favorite vampire!!!
