After at least 7 hours of this I just couldn't take it anymore . The poor women reading is not good . Kills the whole thing . Cool premise , probably a good read , but this sucks .
A great original story line which is a very interesting start to a series. I enjoyed the Narrator with the exception of the whispering. I usually listen to audio books in the car and have the volume up fairly loud to drown out the road noise. When the book called for whispering her volume dropped so low it was almost impossible to hear. I found myself rewinding a lot and turning up the volume all the way up to catch what was whispered and then get rewarded by very loud normal voice when the whispering part is over.
A friend of mine recommended it to me, and now I'm going to have to owe her one... now I'm moving onto the next books in the series.
I thought the book was pretty good. Interesting story and characters. I wanted to give 3.5 overall but since there are no .5 I gave 4 instead of 3.
Other reviews complained about the performance but I thought it was ok. Her narration voice and juliets voice were great. Others were so so. Her male voice sounded like boys trying to imitate adults.
Before buying the audiobook I read the reviews and was worried about the quality of the narrator, as it is a common complaint. However, I had no problem with Minnie, I loved the voices and the pacing and was never distracted from the story by narration.
the story is a little drawn out and unorganized at points. it would have been decent if it had a better narrator. the voices she gave the characters were just ridiculous and over the top.
The story was great, I started reading the kindle version and I was hooked! But I wasn't getting through it as quick as I wanted to because I got busy. So I got this to listen to while driving.
The narrators voice is really nice during regular reading but the voices were rough.. Especially Bernard omg her voice for him made me cringe!
