Being a Lowcountry native, this series peaked my interest. Ghosts, old houses. How could I resist? So, I downloaded The House on Tradd Street and started reading. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Some people gave the book a lot of backlash because of the main character's "unrealistic" personality. There were comments like, I just don't know anyone who could be so full of themselves. Well to that critic, I say, "you aren't living in the real world".
I continued on with the series and downloaded the audio version of The Girl on Legare Street. I didn't find this book as intriguing as the first, but it was okay. It seemed a bit drawn out. It was like being stuck on a merry-go-round that just wouldn't stop. The narrator held my attention; however, I found the drawl of the southern accent to be a bit outdated. Maybe I'm over analyzing. Who am I to judge?
Now on to The Strangers on Montagu Street (50% complete). Once again Melanie has to figure out why these weird things keep happening in The House on Tradd Street, thanks to her new houseguests (living and dead).
Note to Narrator: The story is set in the here and now (last 5 years). Charlestonians do not sound like that. Lose the drawl. You sound like you are telling a story set in the 1800s. Uggghhh!
Now back to Melanie, Jack and the rest of the gang. Toodles! Haha.
