I love the way Betty tells her stories. She talks about things anyone can relate to and laugh at the jokes again and again.
Where Betty talks about her age and the things she finds funny about them.
"Betty at her best."
The build of the characters with Bones and Cat. They really are complex characters and as you get to know them you get to understand their reasoning.
Cat. I feel like I've been in her place a few times and she's a great relatable character - even though it's a fantasy genre.
Bones. The accent threw me off at first, but now I can't imagine anything else for him.
The humor Bones had and a few of Cats bone headed reactions made me laugh.
It has a different feeling from the traditional romance novels. I love the main character for her quick wit and loyalty.
When everyone finally understood why she had not talked for 3 years.
When she got back on the horse to save him.
I laughed a lot when she was not talking. She was so firey that I loved to see how she would try to get her point across.
The only thing that really confused me is the girl on the cover is a brunette, but then they describe her as a blonde. Though I do prefer this cover to the one that is on the actual hard copy book.
The story line is really cute with the childhood hatred of each other. I actually did have a friend read it and she too knew what was going to happen at the end within the first few chapters, but we still liked it as a fluff novel.
The one part where the performer starts screeching trying to convey emotion was just awful. I get there was supposed to be a lot of emotion, but when it's right in your ear it's just annoying.
Detailed, compelling, intriguing.
I think it takes its backbones from the grand daddy of them all Romeo and Juliet. It's a classic two people are attracted to each other who shouldn't be and everything gets complicated because of that. However, the supernatural elements and the way the author mixes in numerous historical moments make it completely unique.
The French accent was so well done when he got mad. It made me laugh out loud and she was just great at doing emotions.
Ususally with long books I tend to drift in and out and lose interest. This one always made me want to keep listening. I was hooked.
If I did it would only be to try understand more detail. This book makes you feel like the author did their homework, but to me it was too much detail and not enough personality. However, that is a personal preference that I like the story to be more about the character as an individual than the main focus to be on the circumstances. My favorite thing was the voice actor, he was wonderful with the accent and the different characters.
It goes back to the first question in which I prefer a different style of writing.
The dog for sure. He was the funniest character in the book and his personality came through loud and clear. A lot of the story felt like it was complicating itself more than need be, but this character - much like all dogs truly are - was a simple straight character just there to bring a smile.
No, while I did not have an oppertunity to listen to it all at once I do not think I could make it through straight. While I did like the character it felt long and drawn out in sections.
I have never read the print version, but I did like the performance since she made the voices very distinct.
Then Came You. It had simliar time settings and had the girls trying to hide something.
Yes, I liked having a different narrator for the letters. Only thing that would have made it better is if he would have voiced him throughout the entire book since that's the voice that is introduced in the very begining.
Towards the end I didn't want to stop listening.
Towards the top. It was a great mixture of mystery, but really did a great job of introducing all the characters so you actually cared when something bad happened. It really made me want to keep reading the series.
At the end when they come out of the maze and you think the book is over, but you realize the series is anything but done.
Thomas the main character. He is a very complex character and I think that Mark did a great job of showing his different emotions.
funny romantic straight-forward
Samson's friends. You were able to get little glimpses into them as people and it made it for a much stronger set of secondary characters.
Ricky - I loved the way that Kevin Foley did his accent. It was always very distinctive and humorous. He had great lines.
