Shelly singer song writer lover of the spoken word
I saw the movie and I felt that there was something missing. so I wanted to see what I missed. omgoodness. I am in love with this book. the narrator is so perfect for this story. can't wait to read the series
First thing I want to say is that so many people want to compare this to Twilight. I loved Twilight, but this is nothing like it. Only comparison is this is a teen Fantasy romance, but that is where it stops, and there are many teen fantasy romance books out, so I don’t know why people are saying this is like Twilight. FYI I loved all the Twilight books, so if this was like twilight I would have loved this book anyway. OK!
Overall this is a wonderful story. And it was a fun read. If you love teen fantasy, and if you love teen fantasy romance and all that comes with that, then you will love this book. If you do don’t like any one of these thing then this book is not for you.
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.
I enjoyed the movie so I wanted to read the book. I thought the book was much better of course. I defiantly want to continue the series.
I would most definitely listen to this series again. I watched the movie when it first came out and never understood why they didn't make more! Now, having read the series, I completely understand!! I still like the movie, but besides the details it was lacking, very few were correct. Hunger Games being first, this is my second favorite series! Love it!!
Ethan is by far my favorite character! He's so level headed and down to earth. He never becomes pouty like Lena or entitled like Amma. He just stayed cool and collected throughout the series. My second favorite would be Link!
I thought Kevin T Collins read this book fantastically!! He really got into the characters and never once did I feel it becoming mundane!
Witches. Southern history.
I absolutely loved the flashbacks of the civil war and the love story intertwined with the two main characters. I love history and couldn't get enough of it.
I have only listened to this performance of Kevin T. Collins, but I believe that he did an amazing job. It really made me believe he was all of the characters that he did. I would definitely listen to another one of his audible books.
I wanted to, but it was way too long. I did finish it very quickly. I listened to it for hours at a time.
I saw the movie first and loved it which made me always wanted to read the book. I am so glad that I got the chance to listen to this audible book. Now I want to listen to the next book in the series.
Movies are never as good as the books right? Well not this time. The movie was way better. I feel like after spending 17 hours waiting for this book to get as good as it could have been all I did was listen to someone say over and over again "My birthday is coming I'm turning evil". That theme was what this whole book rode on. I got so tired of hearing it. So I thought well too bad, not my style ,life goes on, I'll get over it. But then in the last thirty minutes of the book out of nowhere there are new narrators. So I figured something must have happened that caused them to need a new narrator. I can't imagine they would do it on purpose. You listen to 16 hours of one guy with one style, you've got the feel of his narrating and then wham a whole new person. So all I can say is that I would not recommend this book and if you do listen, be prepared for new narrators to finish the book. I gave the performance 3 stars because Kevin, the narrator for 16 hours, really does a great job. I had to mark it down for the switch at the end, which ruined the whole performance. As much as this next sentence makes me cringe to say, my suggestion is, just watch the movie and find a different book to read. Good luck and happy listening.
