second book drones on. not nearly as interesting as the first, but I want to know how it ends, so I'll read the third. :/
The story is decent enough. The narrator has a rythem of speech that is sometimes very distracting. In climatic scenes her voice can get very very shrill which makes this a hard listen.
Narrator gets super worked up during action scenes to the point where it's annoying.
Author repeats and drags out the action of the book.
The story line is exciting and very tense in that, apart from the main characters, I am never sure who are the good guys. I found that the constant plot tension, with very little release, to be way too much. Rather than making me want to keep listening to find out what happens next, it made me want to throw the phone against the wall.
I absolutley loved this book! It was beyond amazing. At points, I, ME who never gets scared was terrified! I really was. It was OMG will this ever end kind of scared. It was an unknown kind of scared. Author Ilsa J Bick has an amazing talent of writing this genre. Her characters, her story line, her EVERYTHING is over the top! If you love end of world type of books, zombie-like books, survival of end books THIS SERIES IS FOR YOU! BUT BE WARNED...there is more to this series than just your typical-the world is ended we need to survive. There is so much emotion, so much to learn about human species in general. It is actualy an emotional rollercoaster! I LOVE THIS SERIES!!!!!!!!!! **I am putting this SAME review on all three books of this series. I will not give away an spoilers and just encourage you read this series. The narrator is FAN FREAKING TASTIC!!!!!!!
Audio never read the printed version
The twists and turns and Alex finding out whats going on with herself
No. Besides the other books in this series
Neither a few laughs but I'm not a cryer over books
A definite must read
If the Author would’ve stuck to the original story. I felt like we went from a zombie trilogy, to a romance novel. The book reads like a Twilight-type love triangle. I felt like I should be rooting for Team Chris, or Team Tom. Ugh, and who were all these new characters? The story went from fighting the zombies to fighting an Amish community. I WILL NOT listen to book 3!
No, just the author. Her writing styles leaves a lot to be desired.
Her voice annoying at times. Though I feel she potrayed the characters well.
Annoyance and frustration. Whenever Alex was having a “moment”, we heard:
NO, NO, NO!!
WHY, WHY, WHY!!
I CAN’T, I CAN’T, I CAN’T!!
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!
NOT NOW, NOT NOW, NOT NOW!!
The whole story was like this. It got really old, really fast.
The “rational” part of me wanted to just say forget it, and stop listening. But the OCD part of me had to finish. Such a huge disappointment.
I think this story has too much in the head of each character moments. It needed to be more focus on who was important.
I'm reading Monster which is next in the series. I have to see how things end.
Katherine Kellgren is one of my favorite performers. I'll read a book just because she is the one reading it.
I think there are far too many characters who are not fleshed out enough.
