Maybe. If he promises never to attempt a british accent EVER again. Liv just sounds like Stewie Griffin from the Family Guy.
Not as much as the first.
It really bugged me that he made Liv sound like Stewie Griffin. I really hate that show and it ruined Liv's character for me.
I like magical realism.
If you aren't looking for a book that requires a great amount of thinking or any background knowledge in the genre of fantasy, this is a good book to get. It's nice an long, if that's what you're looking for and all unknown information is spoon-fed to you all the way through the book. It's got your typical Romeo and Juliet-esque love story, and you can't help but root for them. There is not a lot of ambiguity is characters' good/evil alignments, except for a couple of characters, because that's really the basis of the plot.
All in all, I eat up this type of story, but that doesn't keep me from getting frustrated. I thought the voice acting was great. The southern accent annoyed me, but that has more to do with the book's setting. The plot is great. It's a new spin on something a little overdone. But I did get frustrated with the two main characters, because at times they seemed so thick-headed. I would have something figured out long before either of them did, and I wanted to yell at them for being dense. I didn't feel like the male protagonist was *totally* realistic. As I was Ethan's age about 8 years ago, I don't recall being that emotionally intelligent as a 16-year-old, so that is was stood out to me the most, as far as flaws go. Like I said, overall I liked the book. The characters weren't under or overdeveloped for the span of time it took to listen to the book. But I felt like the end was a big middle finger, and a ploy to make me buy the next book (which I did).
The song 16 Moons throughout the book is what really made the audiobook for me. It was a great touch, and it made my hair stand on end.
Couldn't stop listening to first one - it was delicious!
...but this one was a little slow for me and negative at the beginning. The first half was her depression and I almost put it down (like in Twilight book 2 where Bella whines and whines and whines...until I wanted to kill myself or her!) then it picked up. It introduced a new character that I loved and with all the depression I was almost hoping he ended up with her.
I get a little confused with so many periphery characters but it adds to the flavor of the book. I did miss the "aunts" in this book: they do not show up nearly as often as they did in book one and they made me laugh out loud.
I liked it enough not to give up on the series though and I am buying book 3 now. :)
I liked the interaction of the characters, Ethan and Lena, Ethan and Link, Ethan and Liv, Link and Liv, Ridley all by herself, Lena and John. Parts of this book were heartbreaking, awe inducing and tear-jerking.
He brought depth to each character, made each of them have their own voice and personality.
When Ethan spoke to his mother as a sheer, it was very bittersweet.
I absolutely loved the book Beautiful Creatures, and the second book in the series is no exception. Lena suffers greatly over her uncle’s death and Ethan does his best to help her. Margaret Stohl and Kami Garcia have taken a sequel and kept the reader’s attention, while weaving the story line in a unique and interesting way. I have to say that I purchase the remaining 3 books and this book was so interesting that I will immediately go into the third book. Great series!
Already did, beautiful chaos, glad they kept Kevin, already got used to him
It made my commute easier
Waiting for the movie
The continued love story between Lena and Ethan.
The commitment of friendships and love.
Yes. This one is awesome.
I loved the story and how the narrator made it come to life.
Yes, and I have. It's suspenseful and unexpected.
Link's being bitten and becoming an Incubus/?
If the authors hadn't spent so much time covering old territory I'd have enjoyed it so much more. Seems like it was written for the person who had NOT read the first book. It dragged, moving so slowly that I finally skipped to the end just to be done with it.
