I was really disappointed in this book. It seems like the authors were just wanting to ride off the fame of the Twilight series. And it's a pathetic attempt, at that. It makes sense that it was written by a 16-year old girl but I'm appalled that she wrote it with her mother. The book borderlines on wiccan rituals and I guess if you are into that sort of thing, it's no big deal. But that along with the sexual content of the book in a few places, it just is not appropriate for the audience the book is geared towards.
Oh- and the reader of this book was horrid. I think that it probably made me dislike it even more. When the reader used an imitation southern accent, she sounded like she was impersonating an old lady and not a southern teenager. It was a blaring distraction.
I was so captivated by the Twilight books and this was no exception. I absolutely love the storyline and all of the characters. Stephenie Meyer does a great job with the development from the beginning with Twilight all the way through to the end with this book. I am very sad that she is not finishing Midnight Sun as this would have been the first book series that I have read that was so interestingly multi-faceted and in-depth with character development. I hope that Stephenie Meyer will reconsider and surprise us with more books with these much loved characters she has created.
While I did enjoy listening to the book, I feel that there were so many details that weren't developed or explained as well as they should have been. The storyline was great and the characters all were interesting. But I felt that they weren't developed as fully as they could have been and should have been. I finished listening to the book but it's not one of those that I feel compelled to listen to again nor have the desire to pick up its sequels. It's sad really. I had hoped for more potential.
