I have read the book three times, and listened to the audio just as many. The characters, the story line...its the whole package! I haven't heard much more about a movie, but I am anticipating the movie; almost as much as the next book by Stephenie Meyer!
After the Twilight series I thought I'd find another easy read and likable characters, not so here.
The narration is fine its the story line that leaves something to be desired, a clear plot for example.
A good idea, but the execution on this tale was sad at best.
This book was amazing! It really puts humanity into perspective. Somehow, the allien, Wanderer, seemed to be more humane than the real humans. I loved Kate's narrating. She really kept me interested in the story with her great story telling. I recommend this book! Great job Stephenie and Kate!
Perhaps. It was engrossing but very lengthy.
Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
Scenes between Wanda and Ian; Wanda and Jamie.
When Wanda made the decision to leave and told the others--that whole section.
This was a very different book than I had expected it to be. Much more cerebral.
Vet-Tech @ Kissimmee Animal Hospital, Mortal Instrument, Twilight kinda books are what I love.. and quilting/knitting gal group stories.
I love Audio But there is Nothing like a new crispt book the feel of it the smell of it. but cant read in my car and i drive 1 hour to work and 1 hour home and Audio is the best,I just found Audible and im hooked its like a drug to me. But the printed word is the world to me.
when Wonda came Back

"PLEASEMOVETHANKYOU" Barbara in Kissimmee, FL. Home Of the mouse.
I might a few years form now, its a interesting and entertaining story. Its simple in its writing and I suppose the kind of love story it tells but that also a plus - its easy to listen to, not to hard to follow - a book for the gym.
Yes i would. Its the kind of book you keep for times you don't really have to concentrate too much. Like for the gym or at the office. But the story, although filled with aliens, are a very simple love story.
Buy it. Its effortless entertainment, you wont be sorry as long as that is what you are looking for.
Make it shorter and the characters more real
The concept of the story is interesting, but the characters were annoyingly predictable and redundant in their behaviors.
She does a good job of differentiating the many characters.
No - enough is enough
I had heard that unlike the Twilight books, this was written for adults, but I was really dissapointed with the writing. It felt like Stephanie Meyer had to spell out every single detail to the point of beating it to death, leaving no room for the listener to form their own conclusions or thoughts on anything. I stayed with it to find out what would happen, but found it annoying and will not read/listen to her again.
The narrators voice was annoying and robotic sounding.
Her voice, I just couldn't get past the first couple of chapters.
Don't know, haven't got that far.
Needs new narrator. Maybe the girl who narrates Twilight. She has a pleasant voice.
Good Book. Highly addictive just like the Twighlight series. I finished it very quickly as I would put it on at home and in the car.
I loved this book. I didn't want to stop listening, yet at the same time I didn't want it to end. I love science fiction but was reluctant to read this book because I knew the author was famous for vampire books. I'm glad I overcame my reluctance because this book was so good. I highly recommend it.
