Wow this was one of THE worst books I have ever 'read'. it was as though the author listened to 80's hair band rock while they wrote. the names are completely absurb and the sex scenes are laughable. Yuck. No depth whatsoever.
this book is a great example of how great narration can heighten the listeners experience.
This reader was incredibly chilled by both the story line and the narration.
Don't let the movie stop you-this is really nothing much like it. Try it out you will not be sorry!
I was so glad to see odd back again. I don't regret purchasing this book since I really enjoy both the main character and the narrator-but it is not as interesting as the first books.
I love you, do you love me, I think he loves me, i am meant for him, does he look at me, gosh he is cute, he is coming my way, I would die for him, I want him to kiss me, will he kiss me, he kissed me.
this is my summary of this book...lol...truly just teen in love stuff.
I love Elizabethan fiction but this one really pushed the envelope. The characters were not really likeable. You don't develop a real relationship or bond with the storyteller, characters or even the era. No a fav by far!
I didn't favor this books but the rest of the series is excellent. I love book two with Miles and Henrietta.
I am getting to enjoy this series more with each successive book. I recommend to anyone disappointed in the flimsy plot of this one to continue on to the next book in the series. This one was more like a primer-introducing characters and eqypt. The next book is much more solid in its storytelling. Give 'em another chance!
I was definatly taken in by this one. Ifelt like they used Dickens to sell and really lousy story. Dickens was up, he was down, he was in america, he was home. Really, was a book that you can easily find out was never published worthy of so many tedious hours of storytelling?
Okay, the narrator stinks but the story was so much more cohesive. The first books plot was unravelled halfway through. This one was enchaning and gripping. Not the best book ever but pretty darn good!
Wow, one of the best books i have 'read' in a long time. The character and story development was excellent. the ending was a bit of a disapointment.
Would recommend since the end really doesn't overpower the whole.
