Psychological, Smart, Consistent
Not necessarily a thrill-ride, but smart and intriguing. I found myself invested in the characters and the outcome.
I like little Charly. I read book 4 first and know about this family and characters already, so seeing her as a little girl was fun.
I read a later book first and find that the Parkinson's and cutting are a continued theme. Not bad, just an observation. I like the narrators accent and style. I also like the quick explanations of psychology experiments or principles throughout. I am a Psych major and appreciate the effort. Great characters and narration. I intend to listen to the whole series.
This book was very entertaining and well-read. It IS a ghost story so expect it to be a little out there. It was not of the eyerolling "come on" nature, but believable enough to keep listening for the next piece of the puzzle. Very impressed with the narration, lots of different voices and a great pace. I downloaded the next book immediately!
I couldn't get through this one. I didn't make it past 2 hours. Maybe I will give it another shot on paper so I can get through it faster. I felt it was a waste to listen. Nothing really happened in the first 2 hours. Maybe other listeners got far in enough to get to the story, I didn't have the patience.
I might like to be more sensitive, but the narrator ruined this for me. I read the first book and couldn't wait for the second story. This narrator killed it. Who directed this and why didn't they correct her? The teenage angst and drama is inherent in the story and the narrator oooooozzzed drama and angst in every sentence. Way over done. Good story, I say read it on paper.
I really like L.S.A. Mulligan (don't call him Liam!). And Jeff Woodman is such a cool narrator. Fun, easy listen. Shorter than I prefer, but like Rouge Island, I didn't feel like anything was missing. I want more Mulligan!!!
This is a good series. I enjoy the character and the narrator is great. Its a short listen, which I neither like or dislike. I would like more, but the story isn't missing anything so I am on the fence. Can't wait for more from DeSilva.
I love the duo of Scalzi and Wheaton. There are a few parts of the story that bored me, but the concept is really fun. Worth a listen if you don't expect anything enlightening or serious. I enjoyed the characters without being terribly invested. I will always choose Scalzi, even though Sci-Fi isn't my favorite genre. Agent to the Stars was better, but this wasn't bad. Worth the credit.
The narrator has a nice voice, but her cadence annoyed me a bit. That didn't stop me from wanting to finish the story. I am not a big sci-fi fan, but this story was both outlandish (special powers and secret enforcement societies) and believable (Myfawnie's discovery of herself and her confidence). I enjoyed the story, but might have preferred to read it. Worth a credit if you can overlook a repetitive cadence from a pleasant voice, which I could and am glad I did.
Absolutely. The perspectives of the husband and wife are best shared by the narration. Excellent readers, I really believed these people and that is so necessary for the story.
There is no comparison for me. Maybe the movie 6th sense because of the twists you just don't see coming.
I liked them and hated them both, as the author planned.
WOW, pick one. The author really worked me over. I was sucked in and played like a harp!
I am so impressed with this story. I have read and listened to thousands of books in my life, and this one really knocked me over. The listener goes from having one perspective and really being behind a certain belief, then BAM! something crazy happens and you question the entire basis of what you originally thought. And then it happens again!! That might be a bit of a spoiler, but you still wont see it coming. GET THIS BOOK.
