I think everything is better in audio
I thought it was different from all the other YA novels out there.
Phil Gigante and Natalie Ross could read the phone book and I would listen to it.
Not in my "best" category but it def was an enjoyable read.
Type 5! A frightening and intense read that I didn’t want to end! There’s suspense, danger, love, heart-warming moments, cleverness, surprises, time travel, and a strong female character. How could you not love this book?! The huge amounts of imagination in this book make for a fantastically plotted novel!
He did very well.
Some of the reviews I’ve read show that a lot of people didn’t like the way the author interrupted scenes by splitting them up. I personally enjoyed this. It kept it more suspenseful. It gave me an “Omg what’s going to happen?!!” type of feeling.
Laura Shane and Daniel = Perfection! There’s was a great love story more realistic than what is normally found in syfy books. The characters are so rich and intriguing.
While I love Daniel I just couldn’t help but root for Stefan to get the girl in the end. I thought that ending was very realistic and more profound than what is found in most books these days. Koontz didn’t do what most people do which is having a girl fall immediately head over heels in love with her rescuer. There was time for Laura to heal, move forward with her life (herself and her sons), and then gradually fall in love. It’s a much more caring and appreciative type of love.
Top 10 for sure!
Any Steven King book-- for obvious reasons. This is my 2nd Joe Hill book and I loved it just as much as I did Horns. His writing style is superb. Hill’s character development is well thought out and it shows in his writing.
Very creepy book about revenge from beyond the grave. How can you stop an enemy who isn’t even alive? How can you stop an enemy when they can control your mind?
Judas Coyne is a big rock star jerk but I loved him as well as his weirdo girlfriend, Georgia. It was hard not to fall in love with this old-rock star/bad boy/gothic-chick-defiler. Craddock was a sadistic bastard with an evil step-daughter. I was glad they both got what they deserved in the end.
I truly believe that there’s nothing John Green can’t write that I won’t love. This book is very sincere and has many life lessons, as does all John Green books. I would describe this book as a “feel good book”. The dialogue between the friends was funny and immensely entertaining, as you would expect from a John Green book.
I adored Quentin but I have to admit, I didn’t much care for Margo. I think her character should have been more likeable. That being said, I did thoroughly enjoy Margo’s intricate plans on revenge as well as her escape/run-away plans.
Ben and Radar were such enjoyable and loveable characters. They made reading Q’s journey so much more enjoyable.
He's an incredible narrator and I look forward to listening to more of his narration in the future.
However, I only gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 because of the ending. The ending was very anticlimactic and could’ve been much better. In my opinion, John Green dropped the ball on the ending.
Love, love, love all the road trip antics! The road trip with Lacey, Q, Ben and Radar was my favorite part of this book.
Oh, and the black Santa’s: PERFECTION!!!
It was wonderful to watch Will and Will meet and change each other’s lives forever. John Green’s Will Grayson was my favorite of the 2 Will Grayson’s but they were both equally amazing characters.
Every moment with Tiny! To quote Mean Girls: Tiny is almost too gay to function. I need a Tiny Cooper in my life.
No, I haven't. I strongly recommend listening to the audiobook version of this book instead of reading it. The audio version gives this book so much more than reading it ever could. The narrators even sings all the songs! I just don’t feel that reading the book could be nearly as enjoyable as listening to it.
The ending with Tiny Dancer
I truly believe that there’s nothing John Green can’t write that I won’t love. I literally laughed out loud almost the entire audiobook listen. My coworkers were looking at me like I was crazy while I was laughing out loud at one of the numerous hilarious quotes in this book.
And now I definitely need to read more my David Levithan now. His writing style was excellent and so incredibly funny!
The plot, the setting, the whole story.
Yes. The storyline is too good to look away.
This was the first book I listened to by her and I loved it. She did an excellent job!
This was the first series I read as a teenager that really had depth to it. I read it 5 times between age 15 and 18 but haven't read it since. Since Lifetime is doing a remake of the movie I decided to get the audiobook. I forgot how much I LOVE this story!!!! And at age 35 there's so much more that I'm getting from this book than when I was 15 to 18 years old.
Eh, it's 6 one way, 1/2 a dozen the other.
Kennedy. She was a typical character for a YA book but I really liked her.
Good, okay, fine.
If I had to describe the book in one word that word would be Ghostbusters.
It was a good start to the series for sure. Not great, but still very good and entertaining. For being YA it was good. If you’re an adult looking for a paranormal story you should keep looking. This is definitely YA paranormal. Nothing scary about it. But I’m a sucker for YA books so I really enjoyed this one and am looking forward to the remainder of the series.
I think with the premise of Atlantis you could do so much more with this series. The lost city of Atlantis has great mythology stories to it that could be used in the plot but wasn’t. The plot was too overshadowed by teen angst and drama. In future books I hope that the mythology of Atlantis is put more into the series.
Based on this 1st book in the series, No I would not.
She wasn't bad at all, it was the storyline that wasn't great.
No, not based on this first book.
I’m still not sure about this one. I give it 3 stars. I thought it was supposed to be this great epic love story between Eureka and Ander but the love factor was just sort of blah. I totally get that Ander was already in love with Eureka and why. But I think Eureka’s end of that love story could’ve been told better in that it should’ve actually grown better. Their characters didn’t really spend enough time together for there to be a huge declaration of love. I think the premise of the story was good but it could’ve been told better. I’m hoping that the next book and remainder of the series (however long it will be) will get better.
I live in the New Orleans area not far from New Iberia so I really enjoyed the setting of this book.
Definitely top 10!!!
The ending of course!
Day's character. June's was good of course, but Steven Kaplan did a superb job with Day's character.
The ending was fantastic! Marie Lu had a great twist on YA endings.
I still have a ton of questions about what happens in the future with June and Day. But overall, the ending was fantastic!!! I can use my imagination to fill in the gaps. Marie Lu did a fantastic job with this series and with the ending. We all love series to have happy endings but this one had such a huge twist that you never anticipated.
Oh, and since June didn’t want Aden I’ll take him!
Now, if you need me you can find me, I'll be in the corner eating ice cream and crying.
Yes, and I have. The Divergent series is amazing!
Tobias, because it's Tobias.
It's always wonderful to have a male and female narrator for a book. It just gives the story so much more.
Omg are you kidding me? If you read it you would know while I'm still sobbing.
Omg the feels!!! Roth, you kicked me right in the feels!! I don't know if I wanna hug you or punch you right now! **sobs uncontrollably**
Why would anyone ever answer no to this?
The ending. It was so intense and emotional.
Syndey, of course. 2nd fave would have to be Angeline.
I was disappointed in the narration for Adrian's POV. Where was the accent? Adrian is supposed to have an accent!
I love all the witty banter between Adrian and Syndey. They are just too cute of a couple for words.
Hate hate hate Zoe! Seriously, somebody needs to punch that girl in that face.
If Eddie and Jill don’t get together by the end of the series I will go bat-s@@t crazy!
Angeline is a hot mess and I love her. I love reading about all the trouble she gets herself into.
There were a few VA reunion moments in this book—Very much appreciated! It was nice to revisit with old, beloved characters.
I love that Mead did this one from both characters POV’s. It was so fun being inside of Adrian’s head.
The ending was intense and I’m still crying over it.
