Editorial Reviews

“If you enjoy comedy and do not mind some dirty humor, then I promise that you will love this novel.” Dandelion Inspired
“One thing is sure—there is never a dull moment in this book, and I found myself laughing out loud through the whole thing.” Book Addicts
“Open the book, open your mind and expect the unexpected in an over-the-top, completely whacked-out comedy that proves money does not buy happiness, nor is it the root of all evil…and be glad the Davenports are not your neighbors.” Tome Tender Book Blog

excellent narration

I listened to the audio version and the audio performances were fabulous. Sebastian Reynolds and Kae Denino (especially Kae Denino) had a wide variety of main characters to voice.

I struggled to get into the story. It was pretty outrageous, and this is coming from the person who rated another story a 5 this week because I thought a herd of goats interrupting a wedding while fake pirates tried to kidnap the bride was amusing. I do give Shannyn Leah and Kelly Moore a lot of credit for coming up with an original story. It made me put an excessive amount of thought into just how separate are multiple personalities. It got a lot more interesting in the last few minutes leading into what I assume is a story arc for the series.

I would recommend The Davenports first to anyone who wants to see the performance range of Sebastian Reynolds and Kae Denino (especially Kae Denino). There were many, many main characters with distinct voices. I would also recommend this series to listeners who like outrageous storylines, don't mind open relationships/hookups with different generations of the same family, or who are looking for something that is (most likely) completely different from anything they've listened to this year. The authors are very creative. If you do take a chance on the story, grab the audio version. It's definitely a story that should be performed out loud.

The Davenports Episode 1

Talk about drama and craziness! This book was so fun to listen to with some crazy and funny charaters that kept me listening until it was done, and already wanting more. Yaya is my favorite character by far but the is definitely many fighting for second. Such fun writing and the narration is great!

A True Reality Show

I read the kindle version of this book and loved it, however, the audiobook blows it away. The narrators totally make the story. I downloaded it and finished listening within 48 hours You won't be able to turn it off. Daisy/Pepper/Jimmy - just wow, and Ya-Ya steals the show. What a piece of work. We all need these people in our lives if for nothing else, comic relief.

Wacky and funny

This is totally different from the typical books I read (mostly romances) but boy there were really parts where I was a bit offended while still laughing helplessly. There are a lot of characters- maybe a bit too many but this book is a set up to the next story; however, the number of characters made it so that I feel like we have to read (or listen) to this story multiple times in order to really get at all the intricacies of the relationships between the different characters. This story follows the irrepressible Davenports who are really rich but really wacky. Don't expect PC commentary with this family! I ended up being a little confused because of all the different characters so I give this book a 3.5 stars.

I listened to the audiobook. It was narrated by Sebastian Reynolds and Kae Denino and these are new narrators to me. They were actually really good- I think that their ability to play multiple characters and especially, the breadth of the number of characters they had to cover was actually very impressive! Kae's male voice was a little forced but I loved how she played different voices for each individual character. Sebastian Reynolds also did a good job with both male and female voices. Overall, this was a great narration and well done overall.

This is Hilarious

If you need a little comic relief from a family that is a little more dysfunctional than yours, look no farther! This book was pure entertainment. Each perspective gets more and more hilarious than the last. This book will keep you wondering what will happen next. The narrators, Kae and Sebastian, are fantastic. The personalities attached to each character is spectacular. Kae is a phenomenon. The pilot episode was excellent, and I can't wait to read Episode two.

This is Hilarious

If you are looking for something that takes you on a ride and is hilarious every step of the way, this is your book. The story flowed effortlessly through everyone's point-of-view and kept me wondering what would happen next in this crazy family. If this is episode 1, I can't wait for episode 2! The narrators were fantastic! The different personalities that Kae and Sebastian injected brought me so much joy. The Davenports were fabulously hilarious, and I look forward to continuing this series.

Fabulous Story & Narration

Holy moly, this book lives up to its name, “The Crazy Rich Davenports”. It is a bizarrely entertaining book of a dysfunctional family like no other, they are over the top each one having their own issues. Lucy lost her husband Mark, she is barely coping with that loss. She has six children of various ages and a nanny, Daisy, who is supposed to help, but is not much of a she has multiple personalities and each one comes with their own challenge. Adding to the mix is Yaya, Lucy’s Mom an eccentric over the top senior. When Lucy’s mother-in-law comes to visit, they stay unusually long and bring news that is not music to Lucy’s ear. A lot goes on in this book, it is quite an original story and continues on in the next book, like episodes in in a television series. This is a brilliantly written story, it holds your attention for the entire time and leaves you wanting to know more and what is going to happen next. Thank you Shannyn Leah & Kelly Moore for the wild ride!

I listened to the Audiobook edition, Sebastian Reynolds and Kae Denino are fabulous narrators and voice performers. They were perfectly casted to bring the characters to life, giving each their own voice and personality. They did a great job portraying the characters, superbly performing each role, capturing their uniqueness as well as their emotions. They handled the witty dialogue and banter with perfection, never missing a beat. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for this great listen

Those Crazy Rich Davenports!

If you want a good laugh and just an all around fun listen, this is the book for you! Written by Shannyn Leah and Kelly Moore, this talented team holds nothing back. Language, political incorrectness, mental health, addiction, sex, it's all in there and written so superbly that the time flies by. The Davenports are crazy rich, and with so many family dysfunctional family members that there is at least one character you can relate to. Lucy lost her husband, and has 6 children. Yaya and all her quirkiness adds a layer of hilarity, along with the multiple personality nanny, a frisky gardener and more that just keep the story flowing. It's funny, quirky and had me laughing out loud. I am anxiously awaiting the next episode!

Sebastian Reynolds and Kae Denino are the narrators that bring this lively story to life. It's my first time with both and I enjoyed their style. Reynolds came through as the calming effect of Ford. He wants to make the family better, and Reynolds keys into his personality and finds the niche that is Ford. Denino had her hands full with the women,and she was amazing. Both have great comedic timing and made this a joy of a listen.

Amazing!

The Davenports: Season One, Episode One by Shannyn Leah and Kelly Moore is a romantic comedy that I listened to on audio narrated by Sebastian Reynolds and Kae Denino.

This is the first book of Shannyn and Kelly’s that I have read and it definitely won’t be my last. This book was hilarious and kept me on the edge of my seat. I had to know what was going to happen next. I loved that the book switched between all the characters different points of view’s. I cannot wait for the next book in the series Lucy: Season One, Episode Two to be released on audible.

Sebastian and Kae did an amazing job on the narration! They really brought the story to life. I have to give extra props to Kae for all her different voices she had to use for so many characters. Amazing!!!

I would highly recommend this book if you need a good laugh!
