    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. The Trylle Trilogy was incredible. Amanda really knows how to captivate those who love phantasy stories. I could not wait to listen to the the last book of the serie. The three books were wonderfully written and captivate you. The ending was amazing.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ascend?

    It was when Wendy finally admits loving Loki and spends the night with Loki during a time of a lot despair.


    Have you listened to any of Therese Plummer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. Is listened to Torn. In both cases the performance was excellent. It was the best performance from the books I heard so far.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    Story
    (12)

    For as long as she can remember, Sabine has lived two lives. Every twenty-four hours she 'Shifts', living each day twice. She has one life in Wellesley, Massachusetts...and another, completely different life in Roxbury, Boston. In one life she's surrounded by glamorous friends and dresses in designer clothes, in the other her family struggles to make ends meet. In one life she’s a straight-A student with the perfect boyfriend, in the other she’s considered a reckless delinquent.

    What did you love best about Between the Lives?

    The idea of having two parallel lives is fascinating and as happens in Jessica's Shrivington Embrace series the story is wonderfully written, keeping you interested from beginning till the end.Jessica's Shrivington way of telling the story makes you feel inside the story. When Sabine shifted from one life into the other at midnight it was as if you were there on her side.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The dilemna Sabine was facing, how to deal with two different lives in particular as a teenager, leading her to choose one and end the other and how Ethan was crucial in making her deal with it, kept my interest through the story.


    Which character – as performed by Matilda Reed – was your favorite?

    Matilda Reed performed well. Each character was perfectly represented, but in my opinion Sabine was the best


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Are you sure you live only one life?


    Any additional comments?

    I hope a sequel to the story will soon be available

    Where does Being Nikki rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I heard 6 different audiobooks so far and it was certainly one of my favorites. The serie is incredible. When I was finishing the first - Airhead- I was already purchasing the next two of the serie. I heard them all very fast.


    What other book might you compare Being Nikki to and why?

    It compares to the Trylle Trilogy as in both cases the life of the main character is abruptly changed when they are in their seventeen and both have to put duty above personal happiness in order to protect those they love.


    What about Stina Nielsen’s performance did you like?

    The story is very clearly naratted. It is easy to understand.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end moved me a lot, when Christopher finally discovered that Em is still alive in Nikkis body and kisses her but she is forced to leave him in the end

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    I really enjoyed hearing this book. I finished it very fast as I wanted to know how the story would go on. I started to hear the second book as soon as I finished this one. It was a very creative story involving a brain transplant of the smart girl Em into a rather spoiled and not very smart top model Nikki after an accident at the opening of a megastore. Em needs to adjust and has to keep it secret while missing her former secret love Christopher, being pursued by ex-boyfriends of Nikki, paparazzi's and finding out that she is being secretly spied on. The book was very clearly narrated and was easy to follow.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    The creative idea of a brain being transplanted into another (in this case gorgeous) body and its consequences


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    The idea of transplanting a brain is very creative. Meg Cabot kept the story going adding more and more facts to the story turning the story very entertaining


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Changing bodies
