I love that you really don't know what is going on, just like Gwendolyn. I love the concept of time travel and that it is uncontrolled without the chronograph.This has become my favourite teen fiction trilogies. I love that Gwendolyn is so ordinary and that Gideon is so dreamy. The character that steals the show is the gargoyl.
My favourite part is the end where Gideon kisses Gwendolyn.
My favourite character is the gargoyl. I can't remembr how to spell his name.
I laughed and though I didn't cry tears, I cryied out in frustration a few times.
I've read the whole series in German and can't wait for the English version. The movie comes out in fall of 2013 (in German but the trailer looks so cool).
I've finished the whole series and can say that they are all quite fun, well written, and interesting. The author handles time travel in a very intelligent and unique way so you're not spending too much time in your head working out the paradoxes. The rest of the plot isn't groundbreaking, but its sense of humor and well-balanced romance make it a worthwhile listen. It's very British and the romance scenes are fairly chaste so it's a good listen for most ages.
Okay, it's a young adult book ---- but I'm not proud. Okay, it's not a whole story: it's the prologue for the other two books of the trilogy.
But I'm having fits finding sleep books that are not boring, or too exciting, or too violent, and this keeps my interest (till I drift off to sleep) without upsetting me and waking me up. And that's hard to find, without going to Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. So I recommend this audiobook and am about to buy the second one, Sapphire Blue.
This book is NOT a stand alone story. The so-called trilogy is just one story broken into three books for more profit. BOO!
That said, I like the story, and the narrator. It would have been lovely as a single book.
I loved the readers expressive voice and the story kept my attention from the begining. this is the quickest I have listened to a book in months.
It is an easy listen and I wasnt worried when my kids came in the room.
katelyn the great
Absolutely.. It was left open ended.
Well, this was a good start to a story and has potential, but mostly I was just waiting for stuff to happen..
..And nothing really ever did..
I'm undecided as to whether I will continue with the series.. Like I said, it has potential to be really great, but this first book just didn't do it for me.
I couldn't finish this book because the heroine, well, main figure, is air-headed, dumb. She can't remember a 3 word password for 2 minutes because it is Latin. It is such a struggle to listen to this very slow moving plot, while feeling contempt for the main character that I am giving up.
I'm always listening to my Audible app! I appreciate how easy it to to get all my "reading" done amidst my hectic life!
I loved how this story was different! It was a new idea that I haven't read already multiple times! It took a few chapters to get into, but was worth hanging in there!
Mr George, he was sweet and understanding, a nice balance to the crazy men of the group!
Her voice was nice. If I don't like a narrator, I have a hard time hanging in there. She did a great job.
I was laughing quite a bit. The main character is quite silly in her "new" role!
The story got better as the books went on!
I read the trilogy and liked it so well, I am getting the audio collection for traveling. Listening to it was like experiencing it all over again. Can't wait to get Sapphire Blue and Emerald Green! looking to see what else I can find by this author/reader combo.
