5.0 out of 5 stars Superb audio version of this dark urban fantasy/horror - book one
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on September 23, 2010
Guilty Pleasures is the first of a 20 book series at last count.

Anita Blake is a hardboiled aninimator, which means she has the ability to raise the dead, her other talents include being a sanctioned vampire killer and working for the St Louis police force as a prenatural specialist on retainer basis.
She's sarcastic, loyal & protective of her friends she can also kick butt, protect herself & kill to survive ask questions later.

The book begins with the supernatural not long out of the closet, there is politics & subterfuge & the vamps are very protective over their public persona.
Anita is blackmailed by Nikalos, a master vampire into investigating very nasty vampire mutilations, she's very powerful & very scary - Anita has no choice in the matter.
Jean Claude is introduced who has an unhealthy interest in Anita, he's very manipulative, strategic & seductive, you appreciate how much at the end of the book.
I need to mention Edward, I love this character, a cold sociapath who has got Anitas back, well she hopes so anyway, your never quite sure. They join forces when matters turn particulary nasty, Edward is a supernatural assassin with 'cold dead eyes'.
I really do not want to give any more of the plot away, but the novel blasts others of this genre out of the water.

Read by Kimberly Alexis aka Laurell K Hamilton, I was impressed, there's nothing twangy about her accent which sometimes put me off with American accents, only because I am not used to the way of speech & in the past it has totally put me off listening to the rest of an audio book.But like I said no twang here. Her intonation is clear, different character voices are individual (Jean Claude has a sexy french lilt.)& she tells the story only like an author can because it's her creation, she tells the tale with expression & verve.
There's also atmospheric music in pertinant parts which some other audio books do not have.& this only adds to the experiance.

The only negative I can say is that the box the discs come is not very strong & could be damaged easily if not handled with care. Gripe over.

One of my favourite books out there I had already read the book twice, but still managed to pick up different points of view from listening to the CD's.
Superb.... Buy it you won't be disappointed.
