Tid Bits and Small details...

Where does The Early Years rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book only makes sense if you are familiar with the original 6 Jane Yellowrock books. Having said that, this short story helps one see a small Tid Bit into the many layers that make Jane .. Jane.

What other book might you compare The Early Years to and why?

None as it is a small story that lets us see of what is going on inside the complex mind of Jane.

What about Khristine Hvam’s performance did you like?

Listen to the 6 books available in the Jane Yellowrock series and then you will be able to know how exceptionally well Khristine does at not only reading but also at being inside the head of Jane and her panther.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

That is an odd question to answer after all the book is only 10 minutes long...

Any additional comments?

Being a Jane Yellowrock fan, I love finding out all the info I can concerning her and what she went thru to make her the person she is. Being able to take a glimpse of what is primarily only know to the author helps deepen who Jane is and why she does what she does. .

Jane's Mystery

This short gives some background of Jane Yellowrock and how she got her name. It sets the stage for a great series.

so much backstory

This short story covers a lot of the past for Jane and Beast. Unlike WeSa and the Lumber King, we have both POVs.

Change

The new beginning and coming of age is what is going on in this story. Very graphic and a little disturbing.

I loved it!

I loved it!

This was such a surprise. I found these books and thought they were just more stories about Jane in New Orleans. I had no idea what a treasure trove I had found and what I was in for. I was so happy at the end of my first book to find that these were stories of Jane’s history and how some of her backstories played out that are just referenced throughout the series. I also enjoyed hearing the stories from Molly’s perspective. It was money and time well spent.

Jane finds Beast

If you could sum up The Early Years in three words, what would they be?

Ending, discovery, rebirth

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jane is a strong innocent with her past behind amnesia. She protects the innocent.

Have you listened to any of Khristine Hvam’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

The artist does an excellent job.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Very sad when Jane had to leave the children's home and these she protected.

Any additional comments?

Short novellas like a chapter in a book telling how Jane discovered beast within her.

Good short story.

I liked this short pre-story. It helps clear up Jane's back story and introduces Bobby when he was 17. Love the voices it adds so much more depth to the story. I am addicted to the Jane Yellowrock series and can't wait to see if Jane ever gets her HEA.
