Maybe. As long as it's not part of this series.
I would have made it much shorter. I didn't mind this book, but I felt that too many things were unnecessarily beaten into our heads, and I was really getting sick of Lena's whining after awhile. I enjoyed the story and liked the ending, but I just don't think I can stomach another two novels of this.
I have no complaints about the performance at all. I probably wouldn't have imagined the southern accent while reading, even though it makes perfect sense that Ethan would have one.
Yes and no. Certainly it was worth some of my time, but not really 17 hours worth.
Dear Kami Garcia: We get the point. Lena's eyes are GREEN. Seriously, I think this is mentioned almost 100 times, or at least it feels like it's that much.
I assumed it would be more of an adult story-line, but instead it's more for a teen/ young adult age group.
actually.. not bad at all really.
I watched the movie recently... And it Sucked!!
Yes Kevin T Collins does a really great job as Ethan...
It is a toss up between Omma or Link.... Omma with her Malkeezadek and crossword references and Link is just Link....
It did make me laugh... And started my wife and I talking like Omma in the house...
I am a school counselor that loves horror, fantasy, autobiographies, self-help, and Christian genres. I am a BIG bookworm! Reading is life!
I would not repeatedly listen to Beautiful Creatures for the simple fact of how long it was! I'm not fond of listening to long stories I've already read over and over again. For me, it is not as magical several times around because you already know what is going to happen.
I thought the author took the refreshing approach of spinning this story from the perspective of a boy instead of a girl! There are so many books out there that tend to follow the well-worn path of how a girl views the world and love that it becomes stagnant. I, also, enjoyed the fact that the book took place in the deep south. I could relate to the characters because I came from a small town so I know how a new person is viewed from the perspective of someone who has lived in the town all of their life. I enjoyed learning about the world of the castors. It's nice to see someone give a different perspective to an old concept such as witches.
Kevin T. Collins did a good job with bringing the characters to life. His voice did not grate on me and he did a decent job with dishing out accents for each character! I was able to differentiate between the characters and really get into the story.
I was shocked that the book was somewhat drastically different from the movie. I could see places where the movie took from the book, but for the most part, the movie was basically a different form of the story from the book.
I saw the previews to the movie and thought I had had to have the book. Oh my gosh. It blew my mind.
The characters were great!
Def, this is one of those books you don't want to put on hold for any reason.it hooks you very quickly.
Yes as said above
The series pick right up w no guessing what happens in the middle. Book 2 1/2 though is not really needed. It's like a preview of book 3 w the same chapters
Mom of 3 wild and crazy boys, I've become obsessed with books again after being sucked into a little vampire/lovestory series you may have heard of, and now I listen to most books (but read at night) so that I can be somewhat productive during the day and not leave my family and home to collapse around me while my nose is stuck in a book ; )
One of the best I've ever listened to!! The narrator, Kevin T. Collins, did a flawless job. His character as well as all the other male AND female voices flowed beautifully. I borrowed the book and was reading at night and listening during the day, and I found that I enjoyed listening so much more. Not only is Kevin so good with ALL the voices (incredible really) there are also "sound effects" throughout the audiobook that make the listening experience so much harder to "put down". My kids would wander in while I was doing laundry and absently mindedly sit down and listen for a bit at times.
EVERYTHING! He is so good at this - MUCH better than some others I have listened to! He was a perfect match for this series.
The music did make a difference in the overall theme of the book.
I loved the flashback scenes with Genevieve and Ethan Wate and the civil war.
Film's already been made.
This is an excellent, excellent book. I couldn't wait to get the 2nd one (which I did immediately after finishing this one) and can't wait to get the next ones.
Always looking for a good book to listen to. To be sucked into their world as if I was there.
Captivating, Spell binding, Enticing
Lena is so in love with Ethan and will do anything to save him even not knowing what the consequences are. It's amazing to see that these two have so much of a connection even from the begining, not knowing each other but still having dreams of each other.
I love how Ethan stopped caring about what others thought of him and started to doing things for him.
Kevin provides such a great naration. He really has so much emotion and makes me feel like I'm really there.
Yes! I literally listened to it within 2 days.
