...well not really, but by the end of this book you will think he is.
I have read other reviews and people were let down. I was not. Yes the plot can be frustrating but that's because you are suffering along with the characters and that's never fun but that's part of the story. Suffering, longing, lingering.... yearning. If you wanted these two to grow up and get off the roller coaster ride than this next step had to be taken. Well not exactly LIKE this but that's what makes for a good read and a good book.
I have to say, I am enjoying this way more than... 50 who? :)
And I still believe Jill Redfield makes this audio soooo worth it. I can't imagine someone else reading this story to me. She is still perfect and delivers exactly what I needed.
I am completely satisfied after reading these two books and now.... just waiting on the third. Tick Tock, hurry UP! :)
Yes, it takes this whole book for her to finally stop being sad, mopy and blaming herself but it's all worth it because the devil is in the house and he has her heart. Who doesn't like a girl who always falls for the bad guys. But this just means we see the other side of Warner.
I couldn't stop listening, I got it done in less than a day. On to book 3!
It's been a long time since I could brag so much about a narrator. They are so important!! Kate Simses makes this book amazing. I can't imagine how I would feel about this book if anyone read for me. She's perfect. Perfection.
Favorite quote: Hell is empty and all the devils are here.
Tahereh's writing is like poetry and art being painted into your brain. She is very descriptive and you can't be lost at all unless your mind is just to tired for this kind of active writing. Kate Simses voice immediately pulled me in, she was perfect for the main character and I really hope to find other books she has narrated. (Not sure if you are like me when it comes to figuring out who the narrators are but I recognized her voice and had to google her, turns out she was recently on a show called Mixology and I adored her character and her voice, more of her please!!).
The obsession of the bad guy is a little over the top but hey, what are YA books for? :)
I didn't know it when I first picked up this book that it would end up being like an X-men or comic book hero's. But hey, I can't wait to see where Mafi takes this.
I am on to book two since I heard it was just as good as book one. Even though I was hooked on this book from the start, it was a little teeny boppy at times and made the book a little slow at points, but I figured it's because we are getting to know the characters. Hopefully the action is way better and more believable in book two.
I have read so man who hated the narrations. I actually enjoyed them. I guess because I know who they are. Sophie Turner from Games of Thrones and Jason Dohring from Veronica Mars. I guess since I was already a fan of them, it made it easier for me to follow their voices. I tried to go back and listen to the book before this one and I couldn't. The narration was so different it made it difficult to listen to the book all over again. So the narrations are drastic differences.
Finally we have come to an end and it's not disappointing at all. On top of finally finishing this story, you get some closure to The Infernal Devices and then of course we are being led into the next series. So it's not really over. The story continues.
This book will wrench your heart out, make you mad and cry! What a beautiful set of characters and reflection of what it is to be a hero and a killer. Just an amazing book that makes it really hard to wait to get to the last book.
The lesson Karou has to learn during this book is hypocrisy, but what does anyone and everyone want to do, when the people they love have died? Avenge them. So off she goes to avenge her family and remember who she is but sacrifice herself during it all?
Just a true roller coaster rider. Amazingly written and perfectly narrated.
First, yes, go back and listen to the other two books before listening to this one. I read a review where the girl did not and thought to myself, I need to reacquaint myself with the characters and I am so glad I did. Because yes, this book does introduce new characters that add a spin on this book that makes me wish it was already made into a movie. I really hope it does get made into a movie!
I don't want to give any spoilers for the book but just want to say I love the narrator to death! She really made this book come alive for me, so thank you Khristine Hvam.
I am so happy that the last book has come out after being with this series from the start, it's been a long couple of years waiting and for those who get to start with the first and finish within a week, I am super jealous. But happy my love affair with this series lasted so long.
This was a great ending and maybe even a spin off to another series of books? Hmmmm?
Great job, Laini Taylor.
I found this book to be a total waste of my time. I bought into the high star ratings and totally regret the purchase. The book had more details than needed, more like a filler.
I found nothing interesting about the story or the plot. It took over 2 hours just to get past the first part of the book.
The narrator has a nice sound to her voice, but she sounds like a computer, so that may be why this book dragged on and on and on an on... and you know what's next? On and on and on and on... yep that's what the book felt like.
This book is predictable, boring, slow and just one of the worst things I have wasted a credit on in a long time.
I was really hoping for a good book.
The good is that if you love these characters then you will love that the story is going to continue for at least another two books. We are not done with all the hot and steamy that has kept us captivated with Ava and Gideon.
The Bad News is, well it's not much or really that bad, but this book is just a filler.
Don't get me wrong, it's still good just does not pack the same punch the first two books did.
It's a continuation of the story and other than the next step, there really isn't any cliff hangers or surprises. They do hint of things that could come to get in the way but now that the two are really "Entwined", we can take a breath and relax just like Ava and Gideon have.
The only thing is you are in on their secret, Gideon and Ava's. While others flutter around them trying to drive a wedge between them, we know they are solid so we know there is no more running or chasing, at least in this book.
The narrator is still wonderful but I think she's had too much time between books, the voices were off a bit. But she still has a sexy and raspy voice that I think makes the audible so awesome.
I really felt like the author just wanted this series to be over. I guess she exited the best way she could. I don't mind the character she ends up being in love with, but this book could have been way more exciting than what it was.
That being said, I have loved the series, loved the narrator of the whole series. If your like me, your going to have to read it just because it's the last one. But don't expect fire works because those move to Oklahoma.
Au revoir to Sookie Stackhouse and the gang. I really wish she became a vampire and started an whole new series. But... that does not happen. :/
First off the narration was horrible for this book. So I had to imagine reading the lines myself to give the book feeling. The narrator sounds like a robot. I couldn't tell when we went from past to present. The words were all monotone, except in the male voices. But still, the jumping back and forth was lost on me because I couldn't hear the change that you probably can see in the actual book.
That being said, I still kind of liked the book but hated it at the same time. I think the author had a great story line, it was just hard to follow the fact that the main character lost her mother and that tragedy was not conveyed very well. Nikki is gone for 6 months and when she reappears, it's all blamed on her being a drug addict. I am sorry, but if my kid were gone for 6 months, I wouldn't care if they were on drugs. I would be so happy at their return that I would be more involved in their life. This was the opposite. The dad just didn't seem to have enough to do with her. Her family ties do not feel strong at all yet it was her mothers death and her boyfriends so called betrayal that sent her into the Underneath.
I do not know anything about the author but I felt like the story was written by my 14 year old daughter. Who spends to much time on details that do not matter and not enough on those that do. I felt myself giving up several times and thinking, "Get to the point". But then we all have to remember this is a book for YA and they may like the details of this book.
I am still undecided if I want to venture on to the second book. I started this series because this book was on sale as part of getting interest in new series. I am not hooked enough to care about what happens in the second book. Maybe I will wait till the third one has released before investing anymore time in this series.
Lauren Oliver knows your going to be on edge to see what happened to Lena and Alex. Instead of giving it to you in one big dose, she makes you sit and listen as Lena's adventures jump from the present to the past. From then when she first got over the wall to now.
It might be hard at first to hang in there because really, it's your unending desire to get to the point that makes you want her to just tell you, but you learn about the life she has endured after crossing the wall. It's not a book that picks up right as she enters the wilds, but is almost a year down the road and how she has survived with the death of Alex. How she must go on without him.
But then there is Julian, a new character who can't be cured and wants to be until a set of events pair Lena and Julian together. Without her knowledge Lena is used as a pawn in a game of politics. She leaves one society only to be caught up in another that is full of fight , war and survival. Just as hard as the world she left. But she is free, she is uncured. Her choices are her own and she is free to love again.
Pandemonium is an excellent follow up to Delirium. I jumped from one book to the next, I am so happy the complete series is out because I get to finish the whole series in one week.
