The voice actor's accents help really paint the picture in your mind. I think Ed Westwick did a better job with Will but Daniel Sherman does the perfect Jem voice. But there is a lot of chinese and welsh in this novel and the narration helps with that.
I can't compare it to anything else. It stands out to be a novel on its on.
Jem because he actually makes him sound strong and manly. Other actors always made him sound weak and fragile.
And Woosley Scott. I never really like this character before but Daniel's narration helped me connect with him more.
There were so many moments that pulled my heart strings. Anytime Will and Jem were together really seemed to be the most emotional for me. There is a love triangle in this novel but not in a sense of a girl has to choose between two boys. Tessa, Will and Jem all genuinely love one another enough to sacrafice themselves for the happiness of the other. That is a quality of the novel that I think makes it shine.
I would read this novel with the audio book. It is good to go back and listen after you have read the novel because Daniel does a good job. His pacing is a little slow for me to follow along with but that is why I just sit and listen. Trust me, if you are the type of person that enjoys listening to characters come alive, this will be a great purchase.
Wow. This book really blew me away. It's so alive and so real. The theme of living beyond those who die. It's just so profound. Julie Whelon does a fantastic job.
