Didn't read the print book.
Yes. I tend to get bored with audio books and give up on them. This one hooked me.
I am really a Brandon Sanderson fan and look forward to the rest of this series. Read it right after The Divergent trilogy and loved that it takes place in Chicago.
The 3 different women's voices. It's usually all about the story for me and this was a good story. However, the actors reading the women's parts really made this book come alive for me.
Rachel. She was so pitiful and hard to sympathize with until the end of the story when you realize how she became that way.
When Tom got his just rewards! Can't give it away!
Rachel's struggles to not drink.
I loved Addison and his father, and really got into their story. Also the first part of Gwyneth's story. I don't want to give away the plot, but when Mr. Koonz told the reader who and what they were the pace of the story was like reading Cliff's Notes. And the story itself at the end? Dorky, disappointing, not believable, predictable, formulaic, not consistent with the first part of the book. After really enjoying most of the story I felt obligated to stick it out until the end, literally rolling my eyes. I generally love Dean Koontz books even though the Odd Thomas books can get a little goody goody...but the only reason I even gave this 3 stars was because I liked the first 2/3 of the book so much,
The last third of the book was not well developed, ridiculous, and made no sense.
Yes. Great. The performance was great.
I'd read either the audio or kindle version. I listen mostly on my commuter bus ride because I get carsick when I read.
The characters were believable and you could get emotionally invested and care what happened to them. I don't know why but I'm a 60 year old with a PhD and I love young adult stories like this.
If you loved the Hunger Games, Brandon Sanderson's Mystborn series, you'll love this book, too.
I would definitely recommend this story--it started to build and there were little
Sister. She had the most character growth--from crazy bag lady to determined seeker to...
Josh. I loved Josh. I loved the accent as performed by Stechschulte. I could see Josh.
There is hope.
I've been listening to audiobooks for almost 5 years--on my daily commute, on planes, when I can't sleep at night. This is the best one I've heard to date. There are stories that I've been more riveted to, but the combination of the reader (she makes you believe she IS Lily) and of the story are unbeatable.
