I loved this book so much it was a delight to read. I wanted more of Lauren's story. I loved the dialogue and how much of a page turner it was. I really liked how it made magic fun! how it made witches not scary green crones but any number of types of people and how magic was used or seen differently it was awesome!!!
I am no book to compare it to it is in a class all its own!!!
Martha Harmon was amazing I loved how she narrated the book it added even more to an awesome story
Yes, I almost managed to listen to it in just one day but I am glad I got to enjoy it more.
If you want to read an awesome book with lovable characters read this one its awesome!!!
Yes enjoyed story line and the readers style
Style and grace in bringing in characters along with the flow of her voice with the story
yes but just not possable
Really liked book and reader
easy to follow
the end was nice
nice little story but clicking of typewriter keys
I really wanted to like this book. And I guess I did. I liked the subject, I liked all of the characters. I liked the way everything ended up. Problem is, everything was wonderful throughout the entire book. No drama? No conflict? No danger? Not even a hangnail and a run in her hose.
Some authors feel the need to have all sorts of horrible stuff happen to their characters. Sometimes way too much horrible stuff, (think anything written by Diana Gabaldon). This book was the complete opposite. Glad everything worked out so well but I just can't bring myself to blow another credit on the sequel.
The book was like the first day of summer. Light, airy and full of fun. Just the right amount of magic, romance & characters you want to be real.
I think Nell, but I enjoyed them all.
Martha did a wonderful job narrating this book.
I nearly did. It isn't the 'suspenseful page turner' but it is a book that if you have the time to sit and listen, will take you away to a place full of surprises, giggles, magic & romance, which will keep you entertained.
I'm excited I found Debora Geary and that this is a series!
I love all of the Witch Central Books
Absolutely love all of Debora Geary's Witch Books. Just wish the series didn't have to end. I would love to see the Witchlight Trilogy come out in Audio.
There are potentially interesting characters, settings, and dialogue in this book, but who would really care as the reader will eventually discover there is little by way of plot, climax or resolution to the story. Ms Geary presents an interesting premise, but everytime there is an opportunity for a plot to be developed and take direction, it devolves into the characters just accepting even the most profound circumstance, in casual conversation or narrative.
Other than Lauren being slightly perturbed with discovering she is a witch, there is little or no consequence in the world in which these characters live for action they have taken. The use of a drawing-in spell on the internet, a character spontaneously learning that the stranger she just met is likely to be her lover and father of her baby, the repeated warning that an untrained witch is a dangerous witch, all produce no more than a ho-hum effect in this world. Each of these events could have been a vehicle to create some modicum of drama, suspense, action or resolution.
Imagine you favorite aunt reading you a bed-time story.
The performace of this book is annoying. The actress is trying way too hard to sound funny or witty. I admit I couldn't give the story much of a chance. I just couldn't listen to her.
The technical and performance aspects were fine. I normally try to get through the whole book with those conditions met, but not this one. By the end of the first 1/2 hour I knew I wouldn't be able to tolerate the inane dialog for the rest of the book and gave up.
Not meaning the witch jargon, do people really talk like that?
I'm a fan of witchy books, but they need a sense of intelligence and reality. This one missed the mark a bit on both counts.
The narration went on too long—the first few chapters were simply info dumps about who everyone is and what their witchy talents are and why they came together. This book needs some serious developmental editing to pare the story down to an arc that carries the reader on a more engaging journey. The writing is nothing special or connective for me. It was difficult to keep going through the book. I found no sparkle of delight and no feeling of escaping to a world of witchery, unreality, and uniqueness.
The characters felt flat and the dialog stilted and unnatural. The little boy was annoying—though that could be the fault of the narrator. Now, on the topic of the narrator. I read a lot of audio books while I work in my studio or clean my house or cook. I've heard good, great, acceptable, and not good narrations, but this one takes the cake for the most distracting and unpleasant story telling I've heard.
The reader's sing-songy voice annoyed me from the first sentence. She over-emotes and intrudes into the story rather than enhancing it and bringing it to life. I'm thinking she might be the sole reason for my reaction to this book. This woman's voice is grating. The half-restricted phony laugh she has behind her voice is awful. Her interpretation of the child's voice was fake and grating.
I'll stay away from this pair, since there are so many really enjoyable books out there and other readers do such a good job of enhancing the story, but not making it all about their voice acrobatics. Yuck.
