Yes... The raven boys is one of those books u can read over and over and caught something new each time u read it.
The way each character was different
Maybe have a girl narrator
Money is the root of all evil
Can't wait till the second book
Among the top ones.
When the group realize the truth about Noah.
Adam's home situation.
This is a book meant for a young adult/youth audience, but I rarely let such classifications put me off, even though I am far from a teen myself. I've read all of this authors other books and find them to be very refreshing. They offer Supernatural fiction with a nice twist of darkness. The stories have a fairy tale type quality that I find hypnotic and some truly interesting characters. I love the way the author let's us learn about her characters, and am already in love with these boys, although each of them is totally different.This tale is no different from the others in that it has several layers to it which I can't wait to unfold. Looking forward to the next. Will Patton is a great narrator for this story.
This was a fun story. It was well plotted (until the end!) and the characters were unique and interesting.
I couldn't stand Will Patton's performance. It was difficult to distinguish between characters a lot of the time, and when you could, the voices he used were so weird, and didn't make sense with the characters at all. He made blue seem like a shrinking violet, which didn't gel at all with the way her character was actually written. This is supposed to be an exciting adventure and Will Patton made it sound like we were listening to excerpts from the phone book. I kept reading other things while I was listening because I was so bored. The narration ruined the story for me. If I hadn't bought it on Kindle as well, I never would have finished this book, however once I started reading it myself, I realized it was actually a good story.
Definitely. It is pretty obvious it was meant to have a sequel.
Just read this one yourself.
I don't tend to listen to books twice, but I would buy the second one as the first was good enough to draw me back to the author
It was a very different read from my "normal" and it was not predictable
Not necessarily as it didn't keep you griped to your seat, and hey, its not a bad place to be, addicted to a book is not good for family relationships :)
It was a really good book but it stopped without tying things up neatly in the end as most books do. It felt like a part one, as opposed to a whole book
Will Patton's voice with its soft Southern drawl is perhaps not the best thing to be listening to while on a long distance drive.
While I really enjoyed this book (Although there were so many questions left hanging! Darn you, Maggie Stiefvater!), I caught myself drifting off a couple times during my 8 hour drive. His is a voice that is much better to listen to on short commutes....which is definitely what I'll do when The Dream Thieves is released!
Otherwise, I very much enjoyed listening to this. Ms Stiefvater has a lovely way with a phrase, the characters were intriguing (both the teens and adults). There were many, many things left unexplained, but I understand this is the first book of a 4 part series, so I'm willing to wait and see what happens next to Blue, the ladies at 300 Fox Way and The Raven Boys.
I love my audiobooks! Great for traveling.
I have to admit in the beginning I was totally confused. I had to rewind and listen to a chapter again. But a trudged on. As I listened, the story grew more and more interesting. I got hooked! I could not wait to buy the second installment to see what happens next. The narrator is great. There is mystery, young romance, and some surprises. I would definitely recommend purchasing this audio.
I've listened to The Raven Boys three times already since November of 2013, but I will absolutely listen again-probably in the next few months. I really liked the narrator, but I thought the characters and settings, and especially the plot was exceptionally well done. the authors attention to detail is extraordinary.
it's really hard to chose just one, but I think Ronan's my favorite. he was very easy for me to relate to, I saw a lot of myself in this character
he just has a very nice reading voice, easy to listen to-almost soothing. I think he added to the substance of the story- made it more engaging or some thing.
absolutely, and I very nearly did.
I really hope they use the same narrator. I hate it when the narrator changes and you have to figure out who's who all over again. Or worse, they chose some one with no feeling for the characters, which makes the narration bad and changes the entire feel of the story. I can't tell you how many good stories I refuse to listen to simply because the narration was bad.
Avid reader, reviewer, blogger and budding author.
Dark, Mysterious and Intriguing
The supernatural aspect and how things aren't always what they seem. And Will Patton may have a leg up on the competition as an accomplished actor, he really nailed the narration for this book.
The crazy psychic cat ladies were a hoot! But that southern drawl and innocence he conveyed for the character Adam was brilliant.
Something wicked this way comes.
Well written and flawlessly performed story. If you are a fan of the supernatural stories you really have to consider this one. I cannot wait to listen to book 2! And Will Patton was a fantastic storyteller.
