It could be a good story, however I could not listen to the person doing reading. Her emotions do not match what is being read. It drove me crazy.
I had recently found this series in print. I'm so happy it is in Audible too! I loved how they delt with the "internet chats" so you knew how the characters were talking. And the Narrator was really spot on with Aervyn. This is a wonderful book. I can't wait for the rest.
I have read everything this author has written.... and intend to keep on reading! But being able to come back and revisit my friends in this way is perfection!
This was terribly boring. The narrator wasn't great; the story didn't really get you hooked at all. I listened for over 2 hours hoping it would get better and it didn't. That's 2 hours of my life I'll never get back.
I have an hour commute (each way), so I listen to at least 4-6 per month. A bad narrator will kill a book for me faster than anything
A good narrator brings life to a story...and Ana's one kills it. This book falls into the later category. It's a good story and I found myself becoming interested in the characters quickly. There is not a lot of "drama" or conflict...this is clearly a set up book for the rest of the series.
Unfortunately I will never find out what happens to these characters because I can see the same narrator does the rest of them and that is an absolute deal breaker. She ruined the book for me. Very cheesy, hokey over the top delivery that sounds a little like an amused newscaster with too much caffeine is the closest I can come to her style. It really detracts from the story. She did a pretty lousy job of keeping the characters separate vocally which sometimes made it hard to keep track of who was speaking, too.
It's a shame that an interesting book was ruined this way. I just can't stomach this narrator enough to power through.
this is been a really good book first part of a very good series. I really enjoyed listening to it
Really enjoyed this book, wish I had read it before book 2. Will have to read book 2 again before reading the next in the series.
Martha stirs the imagination, making the story come alive and everyone very vivid in their participation.
