Oh dear.

What did you like best about Viva Jacquelina!? What did you like least?

As usual this narrator is the best I have heard, unfortunately the book is the worst in the series by a country mile.


What could L. A. Meyer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

He could have come up with a much better story and also every man and boy Jacky meets falling for her and she being attracted to them is tiresome, the trend started after book 5 The excellent Mississippi Jack, but now it seems she can't meet anyone without them being gorgeous, were there no unattractive men in the 19th century?


What does Katherine Kellgren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

As always she is the jewel in the crown of any audio book, and can lift even pedestrian material like this to new heights.


Did Viva Jacquelina! inspire you to do anything?

It nearly inspired me to stop reading the series but im glad I carried on as the next one Boston Jacky is a major improvement.


Any additional comments?

Just again to say I wish Audible would stock all these titles.
