Supurr salutations pawesome furriends
Oh before I furget, we set up a FaceBook group yesterday called WHAT THE FLUFF just fur cats, and we did add a few of mew to it as we felt really, really lonely there all on our lonesome with no-purrdy to talk to. But if we made mew mad or peeved mew off by adding mew, purrlease accept our sincerest apologies and do remove yourselves if that's what mew want - we aren't ones fur any type of press-ganging and we would hate to upset any of mew!
This is what it does...
Sweet Cove Mystery Series #2
Mew may remember a few weeks ago that I reviewed the furst book in the Sweet Cove Mystery Series and had a few reservations about it because I felt it lacked a 'little' in places but thought that book 2 would definitely be worth a go to see if that 'lack' was filled. So I decided to review it this week before I completely furgot the plot and neffur went back, as mew know I love a lengthy series to get my claws in to. And this series has 7 books so far with more on the way = big plus.
So my thoughts on book 2: it's got another kitty in it, which in itself is wurth another half paw on the ratings scale, plus the story continued on from the furst book, so there was no lag in the timeline, another big plus.
I realized that I as was listening to this second installment, that the narrator could be another underlying reason for me not really loving the book, because if mew'll let me explain; there are four sisters in the main plot and sub plots, and in my humble opinion the narrator doesn't do them justice, they all sounded furry, furry similar and purretty much rather 'deadpan' aka zero purrsonality fur what they were trying to convey, I felt that there could have been a lot more expression in their individual voices and tone. So my advice here would be to read it rather than listen to it, as I feel that it would be much more fun and a more accurate assessment of the narrative, as mew'd be able to see the punctuation and how it should be spoken.
Book 1 did leave me on the fence, but as I'm not one to completely diss something because of that and not go back fur seconds, I am glad I continued. In closing, I did find that book 2 did drip feed me more info and felt like some of things missing in book 1 were certainly put in place, so it had a feel of more completion and I'll definitely try book 3 at some point in the near future.
Guys try it, but read - don't listen to it.
