I had high hopes for this book sadly I just couldn't like it. I just couldn't get into the fact of the story kept repeating itself changing little things here and there but I did enjoy Sarah Drew narrating the story.
This book is one of my very favorites! I loved it the first time I read it a year or two ago and I love it now, the third time I've read it.
Sarah Drew is phenomenal at narrating books and has become one of my favorites since I listened to Delirium, also by Lauren Oliver. She brings so much emotion to the story that it nearly knocks you off your feet. I have found myself in tears listening to heavy scenes that she reads because she makes everything sound so real. Absolutely love this whole book! I would recommend to ANYONE!
Beautiful story, beautiful performance. First book I've read by this author. Will definitely read more. And Ms Drew's performance was stellar, the perfect voice for this story.
The story is repetitive and frankly boring
I hated the main characters and the story just wasn't interesting.
she really shouldn't have done different voices for different characters....they were awful
The whole book... The entire book would have to be changed
Don't bother with it really...
I discovered Lauren Oliver with her Delirium Series and love it and have been reading her books. I am 30 and this bright me back to High School. A good read about life, love, and second chances. I wish it had ended differently but that is just my opinion. Overall I would recommend!
Sam was the best character.
Sarah Drew is a GREAT GREAT performer!!!
I have listened to numerous audiobooks, and "Before I Fall" is, by the far, the best one I have heard so far. While it isn't the best book I've read, the performance was amazing.
The protagonist, Sam, was my favorite character because her character arc is the driving force of this story. She revealed the more genuine side of the "popular girl" stereotype that geeks like me don't want to acknowledge.
Aside from the main character, Sarah Drew fantastically portrayed Lindsay, the insecure, dry, cold, and brutal best friend to Sam.
This is a really irrelevant and unhelpful question… ("Groundhog Day for Teens")
Great performance, great book. Some reviewers claim this isn't for kids or teens. NO! This book is exactly what teens need to read!
The only thing I didn't like about this book was how the narrator did the teenager voices. It's not that the narrator is bad --in fact, she performed them accurately! I just don't like how teenagers sound.
This book was so beautiful. I loved the story and the life lessons it teaches you along the way. My only disappointment was that I felt the ending left something more to be desired. I felt like it was missing something, as though not everything was completely answered and explained to its fullest. Still a great book and I still enjoyed it very much. The narrator was awesome
yes definitely, it has become one of my favorite books.
The performance was overall pretty good. But the only part I didn't really enjoy was Lindsay and Rob's voice. They both sounded drunk in the entire book, and I don't really think that that captured the two characters perfectly.
Such an amazing book! I literally could not put it down.
Sarah Drew is a fabulous performer, as per. Usual! I was surprised to find that I enjoyed this story, it certainly was not what I was expecting.
