one of the best so far
I think she did a good job
I think that the book is way cooler then the movie
No I wouldn't
I loved the reading the book myself the characters came to life for me
The southern accent seemed fake
No, it was the first time I wanted to get my money back on audible
Won't make this mistake again
If the story continues the way it is going, I believe it will become an exceptional and dramatic saga to rival many, many others!
I literally couldn't stop listening for hours and hours on end. The first night I listened for over 14 hours straight and was so tired that I worried about missing too much, so, I got a good night’s sleep then started all over from the beginning the next day... I was very glad I did that, because I would have, indeed missed too much.
I cannot wait to hear the next 3 books. :-)
I enjoyed the up to date storyline of fantacy with historical and literary components, as well as, the development of relationships among the characters.
I liked the overall air of mystery surrounding the story.
My favorite scene was near the end when all of the main characters were coming together for the Claining of Lena.
I think most of us have experienced to some degree the ostracism Lena endured by the social "elite" of her school and town. It was very poignant to feel this empathy for her .
I plan to read the next book "Beautiful Darkness" since I enjoyed this book so much. Definitely, the audible version enhanced my enjoyment; and, I hope the story keeps its integrity to the storyline and characters so I can plan to enjoy the next book in the series.
Enjoyed the story and narration but could have done without the sound effects - they sounded hokie. Will not continue the series with the audiobooks!
The plot seemed to be moved along only by the parents refusing to tell the main characters a thing. The non-ending only led into the second book, answering almost none of the questions posed throughout the hours and hours of listening. UGH. Not worth it.
The narrator had a pleasant voice HOWEVER the dream sequences were garbled and seemed to be mixed with the music being part of the foreground making it hard to hear. I redownloaded and had the same problem so it's in the file itself.
Better than expected
You get Ethan's point of view. He is on the outside of "caster" world and you see what he is going through when he realizes his boring town isn't that boring.
Ridley and Link
The winter dance was a scene from Carrie. Wet gooey snow instead of blood and Ridley making them mean kids pay by ruining the dance was funny and Macon dying was sad.
I couldn't hear the narrator during the dreams. His voice was too low. The background noise was louder than the narrator. My friend has the book, I read Ethan's dreams.
Yes, its a magnetic story that pulls you in and you don't know where its going to end.
Its like harry potter. Cause you have magic and good and bad people.
no I haven't but he did a wonderful job.
Yes the last two chapters.
I cant wait to listen to the rest of the series!!
I loved the performance. It seemed more like an old radio show to me. The girl singing the song and the sound effects they added.
Alma. I would not want to mess with her. But her maternal instincts make her lovable.
An actual story that didn't revolve around a hackneyed romance, a believable narrator (I'm the last person to want male characters to fit into stereotypes, but Ethan was, in several instances, clearly written as a stereotypical "female fantasy" character), a solid plot progression and/or reason to care; I could go on and on. I didn't actually hate this book until the end, because I was trying so hard to like it. But by the end, I couldn't try any more.
Incredulity. There were several times when I literally laughed out loud in shock at the horrid writing. And I reeaaaally wanted to like this book. It deals with plot elements I generally enjoy. But the execution was frustrating and void of depth.
The "supernatural world" the authors imagined was generally uncreative and sadly formulaic, as was the plot. This is the same things you've read before but recycled into a new shape with a slightly different supernatural theme. If the movie cast hadn't enticed me, I never would have tried this book, and I wish I hadn't. Supernatural teen romance is (somehow) a genre but it is rarely, if ever, worth the time. This book is no different.
