I just love all Kelley's books, but it's very difficult to get into when the narrator is so horrible. She even messes up Jaime Vegas' name, pronouncing it, as if Jaime were a Hispanic male name! A previous review called the main character a whiney valley girl, which I completely agree with. These are strong female characters, not young teenagers and it would be great if the narrator took that seriously. Again, once you get past the narrator, you get to enjoy the book...though a little dark and disturbing at points. Still a great book. I'm sort of bumbed to see the same narrator on the next book, but she's not there for the 11th, whoohoo!
I found this whole series to be delightful! I read a couple of reviews (prior to purchase) -- on individuals who weren't crazy about the narrator's accents...but I thought she did a great job. On multiple occasions, I found myself laughing out loud. Nora's books are always wonderful, a great escape, and this audio book was done very well.
What a pleasant surprise! It took me awhile to listen to this book. I struggled with the first chapter twice...and needed to begin again for the third and final time. I struggled with how much I enjoyed the Twilight series and unfairly didn't give this book it's rightful chance. After reading well into the 3rd chapter, I found myself completely drawn in with it's complex story line. Stephanie Meyer proves to impress me yet again...I would recommend this book to anyone!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was rich and painful and full of amazing detail. A testimate to how we can all change, become something good and kind...even when we have such dark shadows that haunt us from our past. Great book!
