Takes awhile to get into these books, but by the the end of the second one I was hooked. Bahni Turpin is the best choice of narrator for this series. Gritty and not a pretty story, but fascinating at the same time.
I agree with the other reviewer that said this is a brutal story. It is indeed. Try as I might I can't find one redeeming quality in any of the twisted characters. That being said, I still consider this a great book. The narration was spot on, and I could not put it down, even while I winced at the story line. If you are a fan of Gillian Flynn this one is a must.
I started this listen with a bit of hesitation due to the title. I thought it might be a bit hokey. I was pleasantly surprised! This is a demented, disturbing, hold onto your seat kind of story. If you liked Heart-Shaped Box you will love this one. Kate Mulgrew is now on my list of favorite narrators!
This book was awesome! Although the ending was great, and was a perfect fit for the story, I just dreaded it because I wanted more. Rarely does a book keep me hanging on every line, but this is one that did. I felt like I was there, exploring the building's mysteries with them. Just enough character development (Tim was my favorite). Narrator was spot on!
One of the best series ever, and one that I always look forward to. I love that Rachel has grown up, and it was nice to have less Ivy in this book. Marguerite Gavin's narration was great, as usual. However, I am about halfway through the book, and the over-use of phrases such as "I went cold", "His brow furrowed", etc. is driving me nuts. The constant use of "His best Peter Pan pose" and "Bunny-eared kiss kiss" used to just grate on my nerves. We are 11 books into the series. Just saying it may be time for some new lines.
The Beautiful Creatures series is my absolute favorite. I have been an Audible member for years and these are the only books I have ever listened to twice. Yes, they move a bit slow and can be are repetetive. However, I enjoyed the sound effects and the narration is great. My favorite characters are Ethan's elderly aunts. They are adorable! I am from the deep South and they remind me of a couple of people I know!
I have been waiting months for this book only to discover that if I want it I have to fork over two credits. Then I get an offer on my screen to buy three extra credits for 34.00. Yeah right!
By book two I was hooked! Great narrator. Love the cliffhanger - can't wait to find out what happens next!
I like the story line but the narrator just ruins it for me. The lisp is distracting, and the voice of Cameron reminds me of a Ninja Turtle. Won't buy the rest of the books in the series due to narrator.
Lots of suspense! Maybe a little easy to figure the plot but still filled with surprises. I'll listen to it again.
