mysterious, hilarious, teenagers
This story has a lot of common elements with Looking for Alaska, another John Green book. Both have strong, confident, wild females that smart, nerdy boys pine for.
A tie between Radar and Ben, the trusty sidekicks. There were very distinct and perfect voices for each character. He really brought them to life.
Absolutely! The plot pace was just right and the mystery was compelling. Plus, I just loved listening to the dialogue between the characters. More than once I tried to stifle bursts of laughter.
I'm a big fan of John Green. All his books manage to tell a serious, compelling story while injecting great and unexpected humor. The reader was fantastic, giving identifiable personalities to each of the characters, and never missed a beat on the humor. This book was well worth the listen, and if you like it, pick up Green's other books as well.
I like Fantasy & Science Fiction but not into Zombie. Due to Health issues, listen to Audiobooks/read ebooks where I can enlarge the print
Although the intended audience for this book is for the YA market I found it a fun read, entertaining and interesting enough to hold my attention from start to finish and I'm in my early 60's
Oona is an incredibly likeable and well rounded character, as is Deacon her enchanted raven sidekick, some of the other characters are less rounded however and whilst it does not spoil the overall story it would help flesh out this fantasy world if some of the other characters had a bit more depth behind them. That is not to say that it is in anyway hard to find your self becoming immersed in the fantasy world of Dark Street as it stands.
I am normally wary of books narrated by the author but I found his narration to be well suited to the story and will definitely listen to more of this series.
The only qualm I had with the story was that 12 year old children were expected to sign contracts that in this universe were legally binding and that Oona seems much older than her 12 years . . . but these did not detract from my enjoyment of this book.
Frankly i did not expect to enjoy it as much as I did . . .
I would recommend this to the young and young at heart that love fantasy and or mystery
