I'm not sure what the narrator is translating from the book? "Sucks air in" or "gasps for breath". But I can't get past the second chapter!
Just another twenty-something who listens to books instead of interacting with the outside world.
As a fan of YA literature, I bought this on a whim. But it is terrible, weird and not satisfying at all. It really doesn't take much to make a decent YA book, it doesn't have to be complex, thought provoking or even plausible, but this book was none of them and it was also BORING. Half of the book takes place it a dull dark room with no action. My mom also listened to this and said it is really bad. I literally finished this book only to see if it got better. It did not. Don't bother with this one.
This is a dystopian YA book a bit of an x-men feel with romance. The first book seemed a bit immature and Juliette's constant whining and self loathing got on my nerves. The scratch outs I thought would annoy me but I stopped noticing them after awhile and is an interesting audio addition. Mafi has a very interesting writing and word choice, very unique but I liked it. The characters seemed too simple but as the book went on and became more interesting I was ready to go on to the second. Well worth downloading. The second book won't disappoint and was really fantastic. If you're feeling like I did about the first continue on, you will be glad you spent the credit.
Just trying to find my next great read
Original, non-stop, romance
If I tell you...it will be a spoiler. LOL
Kate Simses...if you listen to the sample, you will think the narrator has a very young, whiney voice, but the narrator does an amazing job. Also, at first I was going to contact Audibles since there were scratching sounds on my audio. I thought there was something wrong, but that is part of the story. It is the heroine scratching things out (in her notebook).
Really really good book. I had put off reading it for a while and I wish I hadn't :) the only thing that I didn't like was all the romance, but I'm not much or the romance stuff. It really did tie the story together though. I am looking forward to reading the next one. Kate Simses is an awesome narrator!
Juliette is beautiful and poetic. At first she seems weak and sad like a willow tree. Once she realizes she's not crazy she learns to stand up for herself fairly quickly which I loved about her! Warner is to die for. Adam gets the short end of the stick.
Crazy is as crazy does. It's only funny after you read the book.
The first book is just a set up for the rest of the amazing series! Don't judge all of this by just the first book.
I 'collect' books and shoes, love my family, golden retriever, good design & food. Nothing is learned in vain & my curiosity will never die
At first the narration was annoying, but the story is very well written! Ready for more!
starts really slow. reader has the most annoying high nasal voice. ends on a good note. I ALMOST had to skip over some of the ridiculous "steamy" parts. I think it would overall appeal to 13 year olds, but I'd never reccommend my 13 year old niece read it because of the insane amount of almost having sex, but not quite scenes.
I am not one who was really into X-men or anything like that, but this book really got me. Listening to the sample was very misleading fo me. It starts slow and different, but it helps you get a total feel for Julliette, the main character. The romance in this book is one of the best I have read/heard, it just grips your heart! I was utterly impressed with the narrator, she was the best I have EVER heard and really brought every part of this book to life for me! Great read, don't hesitate like I did!
