I'm a big fan of Whispersync! My favorite genre is fantasy, YA and adult, but I'll occasionally listen to/read NA romance or space opera.
This was enjoyable (and cheap!). I liked the main character even if she was determined to die at sixteen for no good reason; you kind of see her death-wish personality as more like depression or being an adrenaline-junkie than blind devotion to guys she doesn't really know at all (even if the character sees it that way). For some reason, the idea that Alice was depressed (which honestly might be just my interpretation) made me like Alice more than I would if she was just determined to be a victim. But regardless, she was very...pitiable and hard to respect.
I'm not going to continue with this series probably though because while this audio book was entertaining, I really didn't like the junkie-like-state that the main character would get in whenever she was around Peter. Peter just didn't seem to have a personality to me, other than being a jerk, and all the encounters between them just seemed so low and demeaning to Alice--I don't really want to experience more of it.
THE STORY WAS PRETTY GOOD, HOWEVER THE NARRATOR LEFT MUCH TO BE DESIRED. I HAD TO LISTEN EXTREMELY CLOSELY TO FOLLOW WHO WAS SUPPOSED TO BE SPEAKING AT THE TIME.
Very slow to get going and to me it never really did. I thought it was just picking up when it just finished. I was disappointed with this book.
i don't think so
Terrible, no character development, boring plot, too predictable, painful to listen too.
Book was ok. Narrator does not match emotions of characters. Audio book has TONS of differences from written book which makes it extremely frustrating to use Whispersync.
Her emotions don't match that of the chAracters.
This is another story of young adults in a love triangle, but this is not Twilight. This series gives a new twist to the genre and is well written, heart breaking and sweet.
The character was interesting.
I've read books by Amanda Hocking, but this is the first book I've listened to.
The narrator seemed a bit awkward and she was almost monotone, but not quite. The flow was a little off and she didn't really enhance the experience by providing different voices for different characters. The British accents were just ok.
I didn't read the print version, but it was my first audio book. I really enjoyed it and ended up purchasing the rest of the series.
I guess it was a little like the Twilight series but easier for adults to relate to.
She allowed me to enjoy the story in the car.
I am married with a teenage son and run my own business. As I am visually impaired, audio books are my life.
This book had a weak story line. It was like reading any other teen vampire book. Some parts were stupidly put together as if the author didn't really put much thought to the events and there wasn't any exciting parts in it.
No. The voices of different characters sounded similar or mocking at times which occasionally pulled me out of the experience.
The Twilight series. There is the same idea of falling for a vampire and the ensuing chaos that follows, although instead of being clear cut and knowing who will be with who, the reader will be surprised at how things turn out.
I think it would add to the audiobook if the voices were a bit different to make each character more unique.
In one of the final scenes, my favourite character who was beginning to seem more like a best friend of brother character steps up and takes care of the main character making him seem more like the possible love interest I was hoping he would be from the start.
A bit of the story is lost by voices but the book itself is interesting and I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
