I'm not going to say that I only listened to the beginning of the book and stopped. I didn't. I stopped a good 3/4 through when I realized that nothing interesting has happened, or will happen. The info dump that begins the story wastes a good bit of the book; and this is a small book.
I picked Once Dead, Twice Shy because I thought the concept was pretty interesting, but when the characters sit around and converse about the mechanics of the world for the readers benefit? Nope. Sorry.
So, I'm going to go ahead and say that this book is unreadable. I love Kim Harrison and the Hollows series, but this was just weak compared to those books.
I can't say much about this book without feeling like I'm giving away spoilers. So, this will be a short review.
That "Itch" that makes me want to read the next book has completely enveloped me. Evie's voice was just as powerful, sometimes doubly powerful in this book as it was in the first. What really kept me going was the character dynamic and development, mainly because of a new addition to the cast.
Basically, I expected this book to be a shadow of what Paranormalcy was, but the climax ended up effecting me more. Because of that, I'll most likely read this again before Endlessly comes out.
Also, Emily Eiden is an extremely talented performer. I can't fathom reading this book without the addition of her voice.
