pretty good listen
I liked the familiarity of the plot and the added feminist leanings.
I'm not sure if I have.
This needed a better narrator
There was so little research into folklore done for this, they fey in this story were just a vehicle for a sad plot.
Seriously woman, stop trying to make up voices, you just made the characters sound like little girls trying to make up voices. All of the characters wound up sounding effete and ridiculous.
All of them?
The fact that it didn't get preachy about the topic and didn't get heavy handed about the specifics behind the premise.
not so much a book as the story Patchwork Girl by Larry Niven, which deals with the idea of criminals as parts/organ donors and the ethical dilemmas that might cause.
This is a lame question.
The shear amount of profanity, and coming from someone from the Bronx, that's saying something. Sometimes the gore was a little excessive too.
Cut out some of the cursing. The sexual content was ok because it had a point, it showed the fulcrum in a relationship. If it hadn't been included, the dynamic of the relationships would have had less impact. As for the excessive gore, why use 20 words when 2 would be sufficient.
Not much, she did a pretty good job.
none, they were all necessary to the plot.
maybe I'm just not cut out for the horror genre, the only author I've been able to really tolerate is Stephen King. If you're a fan of gore and horror, this is a really good book.
maybe, if the narrator hadn't portrayed the main character as some breathy dingbat adolescent, I could have gotten into the story, but every time she made the goofy breathy laugh sound after a thought or quote from the main character, I cringed and gritted my teeth. No teenager I know talks like that.
not anything narrated by the same narrator.
Burnadette Dunne Flagler did a pretty decent job in Under the Never Sky, she might do the story justice. Caitlin Davies also did justice to Dead Beautiful. I also enjoy hearing the author read their own work if they're good out loud readers.
It seemed fairly well researched.
I really think the narrator is just out of touch with the way adolescents speak, both in their own company and among adults. I wonder if she read the book beforehand or spoke with the author about how the author may have felt about her character. Also, some of the slang used seemed like it was just added in there to help a younger reader relate to the character. Blech. It had so much potential.
