So I loved the narrator in this. She made the story. She was just terrific.
The story was really good too. Couldn't put it down so to speak. Though there were some points that got a little dull they were good to get an overall story put together.
Honestly all I don't like was the ending. It was... What I expected but I guess I wish there was a bit more to it. The main character learns some lessons but otherwise the world will go on without change. I always feel like that's so sad to end a great book without having something more than that. Anyway, glad I read it!
Just finished listening to the 'Before I Fall' audio book. I saw the trailer for the movie and thought it was a good concept. Decided to read it but was very disappointed. Partly I didn't really enjoy the performer who did the voice. (Jim Dale's reading of Harry Potter has ruined me for all other audio books). From the beginning I didn't like any of the characters at all. But I kept going because I knew the main character was going to go through a lot of growth and the author needed to set her up as unlikable to make that growth work. But there really wasn't that much growth. Yes the main character helped one person and found love but her friend were still horrible people and the person she helped was still majorly bullied. Did her sacrifice really do anything? Her perspective changed but it didn't really change much outside herself and she died so her perspective really didn't help anybody. I might watch the movie when it gets to Netflix but I won't spend money to see it in theaters.
I like books. Books have stories. Books have knowledge. I like Books. I like listening to Books. Reading Books while driving is not good.
I was interested in the premise. I will watch the movie. The story is OK. The narrator is fantastic.
Was looking for a little more.
1st time to read a YA. Probably my last. Maybe a good read for that young adult that needs a life lesson or two.

I listen for only an hour and a half. Thought the girl was to grow up. Just couldn't take listening anymore. Do not waste a credit.
