The Narrator is simply awful...she sounds like a birth control/feminine hygiene commercial narrator with her perpetual "questioning" tone. It's just annoying, and they had her do the second book as well. Big disappointment. She also makes all the guys sound like Mr Ed.
Amanda Hocking is amazing. I loved all her other series. This one almost makes me think it was written by someone else. I just don't feel her in it at all. Maybe it was just the horrible narration that threw me off, but it just felt like it came from a different writer. The story is not that bad, even though other reviews say it is. I think the weak characters and narration is what killed it for a lot of people. But they are just blaming the storyline because they just can't quiet put there finger on it.
Better narrator, someone that can make the characters sound more their age and "cooler" like in My Blood Approves
Maybe....with a good screen writer
In my top 5! Just buy the books, listen and then cry. ...since the 3rd book isn't out yet.
yes.....because I like my friends
The overall story line and the building of the charaters. I liked them and cared about them.
No.She was ok, but I felt a younger narrator would have been better suited for this book. I never related her voice to any of the charaters.
It was hard to stop, I always wanted to know what was going to happen next....it never got boring.
The story kept a great pace
I liked the reality of it, I know vampires are not real, but I liked that Hocking protrayed them as "not so perfect" as well as the human characters. If there are vampires in the world I think they would be pretty close to what the characters are in these books
I think she did a great job with the accents and brought the characters personalities to life quite well
