yes, made chores pass quickly.
When Travis told Abby he loved her for the first time.
I honestly could barely tolerate the narrator's voice. She had no inflection at all. I will not buy another book narrated by this performer.
Yes, only for the story itself.
Tell us about yourself!
I do enjoy a good love story. However, this is a story that was too young for me to enjoy. The story was great, but the roller coaster of emotions this book took me back was the high school days. If you enjoy young crazy love with a ton of "what if" and "I should haves" this book is for you.
The characters pull you in from the first chapter. I enjoyed this book very much.
I didn't like the book in the beginning. When i started the book, I wasn't sure how I feel about this story. I, for one, don't really get Abby's appeal. Especially when it comes to Travis. I mean, I understand that he obviously was attracted to her from the start. But I wasn't sure what kept him coming back. And being so willing to help her in the beginning of the story. She was like on a crazy mood swing teeder-toddler. But then, same goes for Travis. His desperation for Abby to like him and not leave is odd. I guess I want to know what the deal is faster.
I didn't really get into the story until about halfway through. Then, i started to really like Travis as a character. He had a very extreme personality and there was something very Pan-like about him. Yes, I mean Peter Pan. He was fierce and he was strong but very, very vulnerable too. I really felt for him because Abby really put him through the ringer. She even had my head spinning through the whole story and it was told from her perspective. However - his behavior was a bit too extreme at times. And damn - what a temper he had.
I will be reading the next book though. I can't wait to read Walking Disaster and here what Travis has to say... the man behind the myth. Excited.
On another note, Emma Galvin was perfect, as always. She's one of my favorite narrators.
I loved this story! The author really makes you feel the way the characters are feeling. I wanted it to keep going and was bummed when it ended. I was happy to find out that Walking Disaster tells the story from the boy's point of view and loved that book too.
This book was a silly "guy changes to make girl happy and they live happily ever after" story. Eeew. It would be better listed as fantasy?
I thought the narrator was just too angry for this character. I liked Emma Gavin reading a couple other books and she is the reason I tried this book at all, but unfortunately, she made the girl too difficult to like. I kept repeating the lines in my head to fit how the scene seemed to go. Makes me sad to say so as I have liked her "chip on her shoulder" style before. I guess it's not a one size fits all type of thing.
He's a bad boy yet extremely passionate. I'd date him. lol
Well... She sounded like she was, 12! Kinda killed the vibe of the book.
I really wanted to like this book, it got a lot of great reviews. I hated it. and all I can say is I want my credit back.
Thirty something with passion for books, music, art, science, and Husband!
First Emma Galvin pulled me in with her great' no Amazing Voice Talent, then Mr. Jamie M. Takes you on a ride that aside from a bit of Spoiler : Mob Action, is true to so many lives so full of life and perfect character developement for those of us, even Academic Docs like me, that give you multiple characters to root for and enjoy watching them grow and develope..and the surprise end with the relationship mirrors so much of my life growing up in all parts of the world!! Especially in the southern USA and central America!
It has no peers yet...too many others are too immature or too predictable. This and the sequel from reverse angel pov stand on their own pedestal without a climber in site for this genre!
EVERYTHING. IM IN LOVE WITH HER VOICE! I'll listen to anything she reads!
Laughed, cried, some sad flashbacks to college and some excellent flashes in the pos way to the same time period. My wife andvI were told by All that we would never make it...and now after 13 years and counting and delights and pain beyond belief, we are stronger than ever!
Please keep them coming Jamie and Emma and Dan...you are the most amazing team ever!!
