The story is again very short, like someone cut everything out of the book. The sex scenes feel like it was mandatory to put them every 30% of the book, first time they don't fit. It's like reading abridged book with parts not making sense or feeling flat.
Add a storyline between first part and the second.
I enjoy her narration, hard to say since i never read erotic novels.
Honestly it was bad enough for a low budget adult movie.
If you must, then listen to it. If you didn't get addicted to 20previous books, then stay away.
Better narrator. This one speaks so slow, that it seems like a joke. He has pleasant voice, but makes the book at least few hours longer than it warrants.
It is very distracting, you forget first word of a sentence before the end!
He read the book like he wanted to put us in bed. Slow quiet voice/murmur.
The story is just fine.
Better read than listen to...
Unlike many sequels or long books in general, this one stays on course.
While one day somehow took 40hours, we didn't get some unedited work, its material for three good books in some other sagas.
I don't know how long will we wait for next part, maybe again three years, but if the result is of this quality and quantity, then its worth waiting for. Story stays focused, it is surprising, evolving and growing. Surely best time/money audible i have seen thus far.
Its fair to say that the book is a good 33hour spent. Characters are interesting, and their motivations, goals and perspectives are very different from each other.
That being said, the story goes nowhere. We have time passing, but no destination to travel to. While a story does not need a 'good guy', it needs some sort of threat or villain. As it is now, everything can happen with no real impact on the story anymore. Authors' inability to generate a real threat to everyone, leads to consecutive volumes with no beginning or ending.
We can pretend that the threat will finally materialize and all characters will have to somehow interact and reunite to face it, but its 6years late already, and we aren't any closer.
In fact characters grow so apart that they become irrelevant entirely.
Don't get me wrong. If we do get ending in near future, that binds everything together, then its well worth listening to, but as it goes now, its bit like serious character chronicles without particular purpose.
The more you care about characters, the more you get frustrated by their lack of importance to the story itself. One begin to wonder if it was ever meant to have an end to it.
