Passionate lover of literature. Give me a good read and a passionate narrator and my money or credits are yours!
There were still some serious issues that I have with the book, and possibly the series. The "This is Audible kids" introduction is inappropriate for such a sexually charged novel, and is geared more to the emotionally advanced young adults. The first issue is that we understand that the character of Damien is gay. I however find it repugnant to make every adjective, or adverb from the word 'gay'. Damien does x like a gay ballerina, or Damien ran into the room like a gay tornado got old really, really fast. I like Damien as a character but the unimaginative writing about Damien does such a well developed character no justice.
Then their is Zoey herself who seems unable to go more than ten steps without soaking her underwear over a new boy. This isn't the fault of Zoey, though I admit to being frustrated that two seconds after her beau was gone she is running overtime at the laundry mat because she is running short on underwear. This reflects poorly on the authors who repetior of story lines seems severely lacking unless someone 9021H0ES their way through the book. If Zoey were a male character, he would be an untrustworthy slime. Unfortunately she is a female character and thus subsequent characteristically appropriate names are very foul, and I wouldn't sully myself with using them. These characters are well developed and you quickly become overly empathetic with them. It just doesn't help the plot, or the characters that Zoey seems unable to control herself for her two already boyfriends. She went from being in high school with her sort of ex-boyfriend who was the dreamboat, to being the boy collector. I seriously hope these two women (authors) can pull away from their own Marry Ellen dirty dreams and get about the business of telling a great story, which this series has every hallmark of being.
I hope the authors of the series can get over these books being their naughty girl play land, and get to the business of good writing.
Wonderful story. But is the narrator English?? Her pronunciation of words is so off it's weird. A lot of the words that end in "a" have an "r" -if I didn't love the stories I wouldn't keep doing the audio version.
I'm a big fan of si-fi, but I'm finding that a love for mysteries budding up in me. I also like a lot of nonfiction.
The House of Night series was written by a teenage girl (and her mother) for teenage girls. If I were a teenage girl, I would like it better, however; if I were a parent of a teenage girl, I would probably hate it. An extra note. Although it is technically a vampire story, the pagan style of magic would appeal more to those who like witches than those who like vampires.
Zoey the other characters were so distinct, I'm still trying to figure her out. and i have read all the books except Revealed
Love ya !
It is not a bad story, a good narrator, you don't have to think too much. Enjoyable and full of action.
I enjoy the writing, very simple.
Her accents are well executed between the characters, she is one of the better narrators.
Yes, worth a listen, not as good as the first in the series but good enough taht I will continue with the series.
