I bought this because the review said this author was a master of the fantasy genre. I wasted my time ... there was no true imagination. It could be the performance of the reader, but I will wait to get it from the library.
I could and will listen to this one again. Johnny and Emmaline's love story was told in such a unique way. The use of neurological damage is used to tell this story. Their love went across time and space to bring them together. The reader is not given an explanation for every point in this story, but its understood somethings had to be for love to rein.
Johnny turned out to be a richly developed character. The more I got to know him the more I loved this character. He became so patient and adorable. I also loved Emmaline's mother. We witness her growth through this story as well.
Lily Bask helped you feel the changes that Emmaline goes through during her changes. Excellent! I was on edge.
My favorite moment was when Emmaline takes cookies to Johnny and he is rude and resistant, yet you felt his interest. The way he walks close to her even while ignoring her was teasing and hot.
This book ranks at #1 or 2 tying with another one of Eloisa James's book. I so enjoyed the telling of Piers and Linnet's love story.
I loved all the characters in this book. They had depths and emotion that jumps out and engulfs you into the drama.
I really loved the multiple story lines. I didn't want it to end.
Yes, the sense of being read a fairy tale is a wonderful feeling. The book is so descriptive that you can see the characters and the environment in your mind.
I loved the twist on Cinderella. The ending is more romantic then the original Cinderella story.
My favorite scenes are with the Stepmother and Kate's discovery of the true story behind her father's marriages. I loved scenes with the Godmother, Henry.
Fairy Tales have grown up.
I truly enjoyed listening to this story.
The story was never ending in excitement. The escape from the mountains with killers on your trail. The romance was sweet in the middle of gritty circumstances.
This book made me feel the range of emotions and I didn't truly know what the outcome would be until the end.
This was a great read.
