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!
The storyline was written for teenagers. I know it says YA but really I think it is written for teenagers. This isn't one of those YA novels that can span into older audiences. Also, the voice of thee performer just was grating to me at times. Let's just say she pulled off annoying insecure teenager voice.
before reading/listening to book 2 Unravel Me, I highly recommend you read the 1.5 novella Destroy Me from Warner's POV. Insight into him is surprisingly awesome. after reading this novella and then Unravel me, I dare anyone not to be Team Warner!
The writing and reading.
The ending of book one and on to book two. It surprised me.
This is a dark and sometimes disturbing story. I think not for everyone.
I don't recommend this for young readers or someone that is feeling down.
I really enjoyed this series! It's not exactly like The Hunger Games and Divergent, but if you like those series I think you will like this. I loved the character development through the whole series. The characters actually grew and changed and it impacted all aspects of the story. The author also has a poetic voice and rhythm with the main character. Her descriptions are unique and chalk full of imagery! I only gave the story 4 stars because I really hope there's a 4th book! :)
The story was a bit overdone but didn't really progress much. The concept seems like a neat one as stories go. It's like your classic dystopia meets X-Men. The voice of the main character was overly emotional and high strung and the author really used an entire book to develop one character. The way she constantly described being touched by Adam in the overly done vocals seemed more appropriate for a romance novel. Again, I get the point but it was a bit over done. Kenji and James however are quite endearing. Not the worst book ever but I think it would've been a better read than listen.
