The classic love story with a new spin...yawn. The small things about this story were interesting, but the overall premise I find to be rather over done.
Def not...how many more books will there be? This was good, but the pacing was a little slower than previous books.
This story could use a fine tooth comb. There are a lot of gaps, a lot of things that don't make sense and never get explained. It's hard to suspend reality when you don't know wtf is going on half the time. The Fade make no sense. If there was a decent description of them and their abilities I totally missed it and am very confused about what they look like. The first 60% of the book moves so slow I almost stopped listening because I could barely stand it. The last part of the book things actually happen, but at that point I was just finishing the book to say I'd finished it. I will not be reading the second book. I did not enjoy being confused for so much of this book.
I consider any book in audio format to be better than a print version for me personally because I commute over an hour to school every day so having an audiobook playing keeps me from falling asleep.
I loved Wanderer. Her non-violent spirit was really touching and to have her be so opposed to violence was a wonderful contrast to the human counterparts in this story.
Kate did an excellent job narrating all the characters. Her voice didn't distract or take away from the story at all.
I have to admit there were some times I had to stop listening, like when the humans were really mean to Wanderer. Some of the parts in the book were really frustrating to sit through, so no I had to have some time away from the book so I wouldn't get too upset.
Meyers writing style has improved dramatically from her Twilight days. I was really surprised in the leap her skill has taken. I don't know why this book hasn't received as much attention as the Twilight series because it is written twice as well as those books...
Not nearly as good as the first two books in the trilogy. I felt like it was an anti-climatic ending and disappointed for having sat through the book and nothing awesome ever really happened. There was also a lot of really repetitive dialog. Really every conversation in the book could be boiled down to Danny whining that he just wants to go off in to a corner and die, and someone else saying they want him to go do something for them. Seriously, this book was set in a post apocalyptic world so I knew it would be depressing, but damn talk about annoying and abysmal. Very disappointed.
Wow. Amazing character dialog. Totally believable and REAL characters. I wanted so badly for things to turn out well. I really felt for these characters. In fact, I wish they were real because I would want to be their friends. Highly recommend. Kate Rudd did an amazing job narrating. She is always a pleasure to listen to.
