Just plain awful in story, narration and vocabulary. REALLY had to make myself finish it and it tortured me all the way through.
The writing is juvenile, at best. If we did not know better, we would have guessed it was written by an early teens girl. The narrator was awful. My wife and I could only stand to listed to the first couple of chapters. Can not say anything good about it. Very poor choice on our part.
Take a writing class.
Read only children's books.
All of them.
pathetic way to become a wealthy person writing about a world I cannot tolerate. I will not waste my time on the 2nd or 3rd book. What is this world thinking ? Would never support such behavior.
burn the series
I didn't expect literary porn or that it would drone on and on. It was crass and vulger. I held out for some redeeming plot intrique, but was left disappointed.
This was a book best skimmed visually so you could edit at will.
Write it using literature style....have an actual plot. there is no need for 3 books (not that I even got through the first one)
Read each character well.
would have made many much shorter
The book was great. The ending had me screaming at the author though. Talk about a lousy ending.
Any 5 year old that can talk! Becca Battoe is the worst narrator ever!! If it wasn't for the fact that I like the book, and I can only get to enjoy books on audio because I drive a truck for a living, I would never have made it 5 minutes into the book. Makes me wonder if the author even heard her read before hiring her to narrate his book? I'd rather hear nails down a chalk board!
The plot of the story could possible make for a good book. However, the writer and narrator should never write nor narrate again.
Not my kinda book, boring and slow
I'm trying to figure out how to return this book
The story was so weak and their was sex every other minute, it got so old. There was no build up to all of that sex and no story to speak of. I did listen to all 3 books, but other than the intreaging subject matter, I couldn't tell you why. Curiosity of the unknown. She did put a more positive spin on this world I knew nothing about.
More story is what this series really needed.
I never listened to exotica before and don't know what the narrator could have done better, it was the story that is the main problem.
This book did keep me curious to know about the different experiences to come and I continued for that reason only.
I wondered what all the excitement was about and bought this series before I took note of the reviews and only after I was half way through did I go back and read the reviews which matched my opinion. I will be much more careful in the future to read reviews.
The story, the narrator, all of it.
Sad excuse for a story.....very predictable. I stopped listening to it.
ANYONE....she just read it with no feeling. It was laughable!
I couldn't listen to all of it. I downloaded the whole trilogy and returned them all.
