Kiera, seems more like a grade schooler, and not a college student! I can't believe one person can be so stupid, and so aggravatingly, obtuse, about one persons feelings. I can't stand her character.
This story upsets me and makes me agitated, I thought a reader should enjoy a good story, but this story is just upsetting. Kiera needs to grow up, and make a decision all ready. Man, I just can't believe Kiera.
I can't believe I finally finished listening to this drivel. The first part of the book was ok, but the rest was just incredibly repetitive - On and on about how handsome and attracted she is to Kellan, but devoted boyfriend Denny is such a nice guy - oh how will she ever make a decisions?!?! I'm not a prude, but I was creeped out by her going back and forth having sex with both guys - talk about sloppy seconds.
I definitely won't waste any more of my time by following the rest of the books in the series.
I was sickened by the main female character in this book. The book started out interestingly enough, but quickly became a story of a young woman who was so weak and self-centered in her relationship with men she used them. I am disgusted with myself for finishing the book and only did so hoping against hope she would somehow redeem herself. She never really did in my opinion. I could care less what happens to Kiera next.
Something with a strong female main character that has a relationship as part of a sub plot not the main story.
There's a lot of Kiera bashing out there. The point of the book, as the title suggests, is her thoughtlessness. College student Kiera moves to Seattle with Denny, her Australian boyfriend of two years. They share an apartment with a friend of Denny's named Kellan who is the lead singer in a rock band and happens to be a gorgeous womanizer. Denny's job ends up taking more time away from Kiera and she finds herself drawn to Kellan. Here lies the love triange in which Kiera believes she can have the best of both worlds. Yes, she makes some really poor decisions and strings two men along unnecessarily. This is the tension-the purpose for this story, and it works. What drove me crazy was the use of the same adjectives to describe the main characters. How many times can Kiera "blush" or "flush?" How "perfect" everything about Kellan is. How Denny's accent "curls" and how many times his grin is described as "goofy." Other than that, this was an addictive listen and I enjoyed the narrator using an Australian accent for Denny and I belive she captured Kiera's immaturity well with her voice.
Say something about yourself!
I was a bit worried about reading a book with “cheating” in it….but S.C. tactfully gets through to the readers that sometimes you are just with the wrong person. I think many things in the story could have been handled better, but that is the nature of real life too. This book was very realistic, and plausible, and it had a great down to earth vibe to it that makes it one of my favorite of all time.
Rebekkah Ross did a great job. I liked Denny's Aussie accent. I will definitely listen to more performances by her.
S.C. Stephens ... I understand that this was her first novel. I liked the descriptions and dialog. She also used many pop culture references, which I liked. But, I won't listen to this series again. I might be willing to try other books by her in the future, however.
Kiera was maddening. She was immature, indecisive, selfish, reckless and an overall horrible person. Perhaps if we knew why she was so wishy-washy, other than the explanation that she was afraid to be alone, the listener could have understood her behavior, The first 2/3rds of the book drug on and on. It was painful to hear the same thoughts over and over. Denny was played for a fool! Kiera's bed-hopping made me ill. Really? In the same house? While both are there?
When the events crescendo ... it occurs so quickly and circumstances change abruptly ... the plot line was just too unbelievable that I really did not enjoy this book.
I really liked her voice quality, inflection and accents for the characters.
NO! NOT A CHANCE!
It was better as a read because the narrator's voice was so monotone and boring.
Kellan. He was the most interesting character and I like sensitive rockstars. Kiera was so flakey and indecisive, I wanted to smack her.
Although I don't care for abridged books, this was one that could stand to be cut down a little.
BEST. BOOK. EVER....!!!
No, but she was great.
I listened to Thoughtless & Effortless in 3 days...Please hurry with the 3rd book!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes. Great story that I just could not quit listening to. A love story that tugs at your heart and your nerves... you want to smack them, hold them and kiss them all in five minutes!!
When Kellan spilled out all of his feelings for her!
She was good at switching her voice between characters. I have a hard time with that on most books. This narrator did a great job.
When they finally decided to be together..
The audio was terrible on this one. I could hear the narrator fine and she was great but there was alot of background noise going in and out. Sounded like they were taping this in a room of someones house...
They Love Story that develops
All of them
Give the Character's their Character
Deep Down We All Want the Rocker
Very good book!!!!!
