I read this book before I got the audio book and was really happy with it. I got to audio book to have something to listen to at work. As other reviewers have noted, the reading is overly melodramatic on the female's part and not very subtle on the man's. Still, the story line wraps up the series nicely, and I think the author did a great job here. Thanks, KMM!
I am trying really hard to get interested and keep going. The narration is so annoying. I have never put the term "over-acting" to an audio book, but the female narrator makes it sound like a bad play. I am on Chapter 4 and felt the need to write this review before others waste a credit. So far, I have little identification with any of the characters and the story line is bizarre.
This series was a pleasure to read. From beginning to end it kept you wondering who was good and who was bad. The fact that there may be spin-off books from other characters in this series is exciting as well... Can't wait to read those... KMM did a wonderful and creative job with this one!!!!
Now this is how an Audiobook is done! Natalie Ross and Phil Gigante do so much more than "read" this book, they bring all the characters to life. I read the book in print first and loved it but I was blown away with this audiobook. An amazing ending to a great series....loved it!
I read/listen to drown out the nonsense.
I was very disappointed with this book, I couldn't even get past the first 30 min. I was bored and confused to what was going on in the story. I admit it may have partially been because the reader is terrible as well. I think the combination of the two just lost me. A complete waste of a perfectly good credit.
I have been waiting for what seems like an eternity for book 5 after than cliff hangers. I see many people have given the books 5 stars .. I don???t think it is a 5 star books ??? 3 1/2 - 4 yes not 5.
The narration was great, loved the 2 readers but at times I really thought it was a little over done and melodramic. Glad they used the same narrators as book 4. I think the book could have been edited down somewhat which would cut the listens down to less that 19 hours. I felt is was a little long.
KMM did have quite some twist and turns in the books .. just when I thought I figured it out she blew that idea right away.
If you are getting this books make sure you have either read or listened to the 1st 4.
I am not familiar with this author and didn't realize this was part of a series. However, opening the story to her hysterical ranting about killing someone she thought was immortal was a bit annoying. I was sorry to have wasted one of my credits on this selection.
I've never shut off an audiobook less than a 1/4 of the way through, but this one had me wanting to turn it off five minutes in, I'm actually proud I lasted as long as I did. If I had to hear the full name of her dead lover one more time I was afraid my ears would begin bleeding! This was only paralleled by the ridiculous amount of time spent on the protagonist's laser-like focus on her feelings about EVERYTHING. The over the top dramatic scenes were exactly like listening to the weird girl in high school who haunted the drama department and who was more than a little out of touch with reality. Poorly written and the narrator didn't help, this was beyond bad.
