I finished this book but was dissapointed in it as well. I think the story was probebly good but I had such a hard time with the reader. I couldnt get the voice out of my head and it was in a bad way. I also didnt like how I couldnt always tell who was talking, as in which character was in control. Sorry. I will probebly not be listening to any more of this series.
I read this series as fast as I could. I liked the action and humor. I also liked the fact there wasn't too much detail in tactics and technology. As some one who has never served or is techno stupid it is easy to understand. Ready for the next in line.
I read books for entertainment. If I enjoy it and it helps me continue to work or I don't want to put them down or shut them off then they are worth it. This was worth it. It is a little violent and odd with all of the cloning but other wise a good read.
I am so annoyed with the reader of this book. She sounds like Phillis Diller and I don't like it in reading books. It is distracting.
The story was written well and the reader is my all time favorite, but the story was boring. I like books that have bombs exploding or characters getting kidnapped or some sort of action. I couldn't finish the book. Sorry
This is the first of her books I have listened to. A surprise. The reader didn't really do much in changing her voice, but there some slight differences. I thought she had a good voice and would listen to her again. The story was interesting as well. Thanks
I have been reading Elizabeth Lowell books for years. Love her, and her stories. I have also listened to Justine Eyre and even though she doesn't make me want to stop listening, I just don't care for her voice. Or the timing. She seems to be whispering and then she is also kind of a monotone. I finished the book, but may have to reread it on my kindle to get the full scope of the story.
I am over half way thru and had to quit. I just couldnt put up with the whining from the main star Emma. Everytime she got going I had to force my way thru her ranting and acting like a child. I finally called it quits after the second separation from Guy. I really think the idea of the story is good. I just cant get past Emma acting like a child and disloyal to Guy. Cant take it any more. I feel the reader performed well, just the Emma person drove me nuts.
I think this was a good story and the readers did well. But I was so tired mentally, I had to look for a funny book to listen to right after. All of the trials this girl went thru, wow. She is way nicer than me. I realize she is just a teenager, but after all of the control the reigning government had over her, you would think she would take a closer look and the future government possibilities then a shrug. *Sigh*
I enjoyed the story it was funny and had some action. I read the other reviews and they didnt like the reader. I am not a big fan of the reader but it wasnt enough to make me quit the book. I am going to continue the series, but I do hope there will be a change in the reader. She doesnt have a bad voice, but some thing is off with the ending of a word. Again, it is not enough to make me quit the story.
I liked the story really well, however, the reader M Guest didnt make me happy. I didnt mind her voice, except for the other characters she read. I didnt like the voice for Poppy. She made her sound like she was so emotionless and over 110 years old. I also didnt like the timing on her reading. There was a lot of humer in this book but you couldnt tell with the timing being off. Not sure who was to blame for that. I would like to continue the series to find out what is up with her dad, but if Mia is reading I probebly wont.
