I read this book about six or seven years ago when I was obsessed with teen vampire drama. I'm almost 25 now and decided to give it a listen because I remember enjoying the story. I read several in this series but never finished it. I gave the audio book three stars because although the story was entertaining and the writing funny and real, the narration was absolutely terrible. The narrator is some Australian voice actress trying to put on an American accent and she messes up simple pronunciation. You can hear her Australian accent come through a lot of parts. She tries to do voices for different characters but failed. Her southern accent is atrocious. She gave the sassy black girl from a northern state a ghetto sounding southern accent. I almost didn't finish this audio book because of her terrible voice and terrible reading. If you can get over her terrible voice over its hard to get over the constant breathing and smacking of her lips into the mic. I'll definitely sample my audio books before buying from now on. I hope the rest of the series isn't narrated by this Edwina woman. I want to be able to finish it and enjoy it.
Other than her failed attempt at pronouncing words to sound cultured, the noises that she makes with her mouth in between sentences and during pauses makes me want to vomit. No one enjoys listening to the sounds of someones spit in their mouth when being read to. Absolutely distracted me from anything good this book had to offer.
I've actually read most of this series, and I have enjoyed it. However, listening to the audio version is very slow going. I'm having a hard time with the performance. unfortunately, the reader's voice is kind of boring, amd doesn’t hold my attention.
I am addicted to audio books, mostly fantasy. I have alwayz loved to read but could never find the time. This way I keep my mind occupied with wonderful stories and don't get caught up in life's stresses. I'm so glad I found this site.
the 1st couple books are not bad. But the series gets worse and worse as it goes on. The last one I couldn't even finish it was so ridiculous
Marked was a great story, very well written and great to listen to on audio, my next book in line is most definitely Betrayed...starting it right now! Then downloading the rest of the books as soon as possible!
