I was really surprised how much I liked this book. First the narrators we good. I like Veronica Meunch and Christian Fox. Most romance narrators are awful but these two got the tone just right. River Wilde is now one of my favorite romantic leads. It's a great story (gets some tissues for the first few chapters) with a interesting twist at the end.
This book is meant to be listened to. Grace Grant is one of my favorite narrators out there because she isn't sappy and over the top melodramatic like majority of actors reading romance novels. Her comedic timing is flawless in this book. It's an adorable,and sexy as hell story about two extremely driven people. I absolutely adored Chloe and Bennett and their volatile relationship.
The narrator really nails this story, truly capturing the sexy and romantic character Scot Braedon in perfect pitch as well as the smart ass, clever and angst ridden Jocelyn. Seriously, why has Paula Costello on,y narrated one book? It's a sweet and sexy story and a group of really great characters.
This is one my favorite audio books. Most romance novels have terrible narration, I find myself picking books as much for the narrator as I do the story or author. The narrator nails this story, gets the edginess and humor of the characters. It's funny and sexy story and the characters are rich and three dimensional. If only most audio books could deliver this kind of storytelling. I have listened to this book more than once and it enjoy it every time
This is not at all what expected. This is no ordinary YA book, Its for teens and adults alike. The prose are beautiful. There is nothing patronizing, cheesy or trite about this story which some of the other series in this genre fall victim to. Make sure to have a box of Kleenex handy.
I would NOT compare this book to The Divergence trilogy of Hunger Games.
This is one of the best performances I have heard in a while. She makes the characters so vivid and authentic. She nails each character and captures the tone of young adulthood, the moodiness, chattiness, the emotional intensity of everything.
The relationships with Hannah and Alex are heartbreaking and wonderful.
After having listened to many, many books Casual Vacancy may be one of my all time favorites.
Casual Vacancy has much same genius of the Harry Potter series. J.K. Rowling has a wonderful talent for creating very rich, three dimensional, worlds. The characters in Pagford and are so fascinating, colorful and tragic. I was hooked!
Hollander is an inspired storyteller, he gets the tone of every character just right.
I would recommend this book to just about anyone. Gripping story about the civil war that is made even better by a very,very good narrator.
This is a pretty good historical thriller but the narration really doesn't do the story any favors.
If you love Russian history this is a great story and series. Leo is such a compelling and complex character. The details, the story line are so rich with detail and emotion.
Leo is such a great, great character.
Loved it. I have listened to some of his other books and have enjoyed all of them.
