From the reviews I read, I expected a book filled with humor and wit, with a side of supernatural...on the lines of Buffy or early X-Files. I didn't laugh at all and took about three times longer than normal to work my way through the book. It was light-hearted enough, but lacked depth and substance. I could have walked away at any time and probably not thought about it again.
If you like Vampire Academy or The Vampire Diaries series...I think you will love this. They gave me the same vibe. If you are a parent looking for a contemporary and safe read for your child...this is one of the best choices I have come across in this genre. I was actually impressed with the lack of bad language and sexual references. Even the violence was minimal.
No complaints about the narration. It grated on my nerves at times, but that was more in the phrasing, which would have been a problem reading as well. I really do think the voice of the character was accurately portrayed.
Overall, I would recommend it for a younger audience or someone who enjoys more youthful humor. If you are looking for something along the lines of Molly Harper read by Amanda Ronconi...this is not it.
perhaps some young teens might get off on this tripe
too shallow and teeny boppy
I'd swap this one
Not bad for adults, though. The narrator, Emily Eiden, sounds like a whiny teen; however, once you get past this, her voice works incredibly well for the main character.
