I'd rather have spent the time listening to something else, but it was an OK way to distract myself while doing the dishes. About halfway through it was truly difficult to keep going, but I wanted to finish it so I could write an honest review.
No, vampire books will always will always be one of my favorite genres, but it sure turned me off Morgan Rice!
Ugh, just ANYONE who doesn't sound like a seventeen year old snotty little girl with a distinct Californian accent. Seriously, ANYONE ELSE. Pronunciation, rythm and pitch were just awful. Needed a little bit more character also.
No, please. Those Twilight movies were awful enough.
Characters were very unconvincing, plot was kinda meeh. If the writer would have actually put some effort into the story and characters I would have loved it. But in no way am I buying that within an hour of meeting someone, one could declare a deep love and be hurt by their rejection and so on. Just awful character building. It feels a little like the author is just hurrying to skip to the end of the book. Also Caitlin's relationship with her family seems to completely fade away - is very confusing and weird.
In summary: Very gripping and convincing in the beginning, but quickly turns to the most ridiculous story I've read.
No I wont listen again. Book 2 is same reader but much better...........its worth listening to this book so you understand the characters more later on. But thats all!
Nothing. The narrator was the absolute worst on Audible, so bad I couldn't finish listening to it.
I will finish reading the book and adjust my rating accordingly. I rated it in all areas, as it wouldn't let me just rate the performance. I would hate to lower a score for an author's work because of a terrible narrator, which is why I gave it 4 stars.
The narrator was terrible. She speaks slow and in a monotone. I've never wanted to return a book because of a narrator until this one and I have over 300 books in my library. She is totally flat in speaking. There is no emotion. I think the Text to Speech feature on my Kindle could read this better, and that is pretty much the way this narrator read the book. Just reading the words and pausing at the end of the sentences. I had a hard time starting this book & thought maybe I could get into it more if I listened to it & that was a really bad idea.
I really can't think of anything nice to say about the narrator at all. Her voice was childish, on top of boring.
Save yourself & read the print version. this will be the first book I'm returning due to the poor worrk of the narrator.
I TRIED to get through even a quarter of the way through this book, but the narrator spoke so slowly and in a teenage whine, that I just couldn't stand it. 2 minutes into the book I knew it was going to be an issue with the VERY slow cadence of the narrator. Unfortunately, the content never had a chance. The part I did listen to wasn't particularly interesting... I'm disappointed and sorry I wasted the money on the audiobook.
I've listened to hundreds of audiobooks and I would have to say this is the worst I've ever heard. :(
The speed and cadence of the reading was just unbearable.
I would possibly try purely out of curiousity. If Morgan Rice ended the book so abruptly just to get you to read the next, then kudos to her. Goal achieved. If the ending was suppose to be a "good stopping point" then I think she needs rethink her writing career.
Again, only out of curiousity, but I'm not in a hurry.
She did an good enough job. Sometimes she could've picked up the speed of her narration, but otherwise I think she did good for the tone of the book.
Yes, to write this review.
The plot wasn't all that bad, but the author tried so hard to make a mystery, that she forgot to also give us some answers in the same book. The main character got a bit irritating after a while, but the story ended before I truly got the urge to mentally b-slap her for being so stupid.
