I don't if its because it was of the first books she wrote but I didn't like the story at all... and it's not only because of the story per se because the narrators were awful too... but it wasn't the same quality content from the raven boys or the scorpio races... for me at least.
I didn't like that the story, the development of it or anything...
About the narrators, I didn't like that the guy sounded a lot (and I mean a LOT) older than the girl and behaved equally immature than her.
At the end I couldn't finish the book... and I try really hard to finish every book I buy even if I don't like it... but this was just too much for me...
Dopey adolescent romance but a lot of fun to listen to and it draws you in. The performers are fabulous. I really enjoyed this silly little book while commuting to the office and while getting ready for work in the morning. A light diversion.
I'll read just about anything!
Enjoyed it. The narrator was okay. I liked the males voice better and giggled when he was speaking for grace in the story.
I'm addicted to romance novels. I specifically like dark, alpha, arrogant, dominant, over the top, aggressive, jealous male characters.
This was a really sweet teenagery love story. It's not fair for me to compare the book to Twilight, as I am an adult Twilight fan, but it was little too soft for me, especially the werewolf character (mentally & physically), It was a good read to pass time.
There wasn't anything spectacle about the narrators voices. Their voices were pleasant to listen too,
I can't really see a film being made of this book.
I wish the wolf character had a little bit more back bone.
I enjoyed the story and the female narrator was great. There was just something about the male narrator's voice that just bothered me. He portrayed this constant feeling of agony even when it wasn't warranted by the storyline. It was just odd.
This is a beautiful story. It may be a bit slow starting but that quickly changes and I was hooked. I am eager to read the second book.
Love this book so much, mostly because I love books with werewolves and vampires and stuff. But that's just it, it's not like all the rest which makes it even better and full of surprises. :)

I've listened to it twice so far, and it just keeps getting better. I've also listened to Linger and Forever, the other books in this trilogy. Maggie Stiefvater is a poet masquerading as a novelist! And, in the audiobooks you soon learn that she is also a musician!
Grace and Sam, of course! Without giving anything away, they are so polar opposites, but are meant for each other.
The beginning. No, it's the middle. No, no, it is definitely the ending!!!
AND NO, I will not spoil this book for anyone! Read It! It is ALL in the words. It is why some great books can never be translated into movies. It's the words.
I was hooked from the first chapter... and yes, there is some crying envolved. So if you don't like getting all emotional, don't read it.
I took a chance on a novelist I'd never heard of, by narrators I'd never listened to, in a genre of books (YA) that is not my age group, and I was greatly rewarded! There is nothing better than that! Thank you Audible! Thank you Maggie!!!
