Native Californian, but lived in TX for 2.5 yrs where I joined a neighborhood book club and never looked back! I listen and read books! After 5 years of raving about audiobooks, I finally got my husband hooked!
I love teen Dystopia. Most are good enough to keep me interested. Few are great. This falls in the former category. A couple things had me rolling my eyes a little (too simplistic or too overeager), but I got past it. Character development is ok. There isn't anything outstanding about Penryn or Rafe to make me LOVE them. And at this point, we don't know WHY the Angels have descended upon earth to destroy or harm us. Rafe doesn't even know why. And why do they hate us so much? We are just Monkeys to them. I'm hoping this will be explained by book 2. This story got great reviews and most seemed to love it. I'm a little more than "meh" on this. Just enough to want to find out more. But I have no qualms about abandoning the series if book 2 does not improve. I have way too many books in my TBR to waste my time on so-so.
The action sequences are fun to listen to, but the dialogue is painful. The narration makes it worse.
I didn't care for the narration.
Interesting storyline and a good plot. Decent character development. Raff and Penryn make an interesting pair. Given the way book 1 ended, I wonder what is in store for us in book 2.
Such a good story. Read a few angle books and this one is surprisingly different. Not a love story. But a story of loyalty and survival. Definitely will read next in series.
I love how Angelfall keeps your attention from beginning to end. It's an intense story that keeps you involved with the characters. The first person characterization is spot on, and I give the narrator a 4 of 5 - there's potention there even if it wasn't the best performance, it was still very good1
I loved the vivid imagery. The descriptions bring you into the story.
More emotion in the performance! She wasn't monotone, but it was a bit flat.
When the angels come, will you survive?
Pretty interesting book, never heard of author and don't typically read these types of books but I enjoyed it and have purchased all.
This is my first Post Apocalyptic novel, and I loved it so much. The first tried I read it, I couldn't for the life of me get into it that I had to put it down. I'm so happy that I decided to give it an second try. Now, I cannot wait to read the next book of the series.
I'm not really an angel fan, bring an agnostic, but heard the story was good so listened to it. For YA with impulsive emotions but still good with romance developing. Very good performance by the narrator ( so sorry I forget her name).
