The narrator. Terrible accents and a slight laugh in her voice which was totally inappropriate. And seriously, who uses the same southern drawl each way no matter if you are happy, angry, sad, etc? Those require different inflections, meter, timbre. Ms. Dukehart was not capable. Sorry.
The Paranormalcy books. I loved those. Funny, serious moments, a heroine in need of accepting her destiny, etc.
Amanda Ronconi, Eileen Stevens, Sarah Drew? All much better choices.
I am amazed that even though the narrator drove me crazy, I was able to listen, laugh, and decided to purchase the 2nd book! I love the story, the characters, Sophie. That's how great the story is. I love the humor!
No. But I need to be invested in these characters. Otherwise, why subject yourself to the dark heaviness of the story?
Sure. Some exaggerated "sinister" voices, but I guess that's what they wanted. Those poor narrators must have been so depressed with this!
Serious disappointment. Where is the hope? Who should I root for? Even the lovey dovey scenes were dark!
Love Ray Porter!
Just not my cup of tea. Ending was a cop out.
His voices are so distinct! Never confused.
I'm sure for some this book rocked. It was just not for me.
Any narrator(s) that can be on the same page! One character from one narrator has some sort of sophisticated European accent and the same character from the other narrator has her as an old Granny. How can you possibly keep it straight and better yet, take it seriously? Why did no one point this out?
Because this story was about big ideas and wasn't broken down for the rest of us, I felt nothing for these characters.
There were too many ideas in this book. It's a great concept, but poorly constructed. I never felt invested in these characters. The narration ruined it, and I'm actually a fan of both these voice actors! So disappointing. I should have listened to the reviews. I'll be requesting a refund.
Oh yes. So well written, such good vocal work, such a wonderful turn and redemption for the characters!
Oh all the steamy moments between Juliette and Warner. And Juliette's evolution. Sooooo good!
My darling Kenji. What a great character.
I cheered for the ending! I want more!
A different narrator. Her voices are terrible. It's almost like she's mocking the characters.
Terrible voices. Her main man is Russian and talks a lot. Don't you think you would want to perfect the accent? It was painful. The supporting characters have a dopey tone. Why didn't someone fix this in the studio?
Will be requesting a refund. What a waste, the story was good.
Crazy Good. Yes.
Zephyr! Best heroine ever. Better than Carrie in Sex and the City. Funny, odd, caring, crazy, the kind of girl I'd want to hang out with!
Her really solid voices. There wasn't a question abut who was talking. Lovely French accent, which can be painful if done wrong.
Zephyr! We would have such a good time gossiping about everything!
This was such a crazy story. I laughed so much, which is worth five stars alone. Add in all the unique characters and you have a hit. I really loved the Sterling Girls and of course Gregory. Give this book a listen. You will love it!
Yes, she's a consistently awesome narrator. Always does a great job with unique voices.
No and I think that's the problem. The book was just OK. Not very special, not horrible. I didn't hate it and I didn't love it.
Sure if I was bored.
The Jane Jameson series, and unfortunately, this book wasn't even close.
Her voices are fun, original, and distinct.
Not bad, maybe if I hadn't listened to the Jane Jameson series first, I would have more passion for this book.
Yes because Angela Dawe does some great voices. Particularly Ray and the Devil. Good work.
Oh everything Mab. I loved her. LOVE.
Yes and this one blew the other performance out of the water!
I almost quit on this book. It started out pretty slow. But the more I listened the more I loved, the more connected I felt. I loved Mab's evolution, loved Fun, loved the concept in general. I'm so glad I stuck with it. In fact, as soon as it ended, I started it over again and loved it even more!
Jane of course!
Yes when it was over I wanted to download the next book immediately, but then I realized there wasn't one! Why can't there be a 5th 6th or 7th book?
I loved the ending and really appreciated the humor in this series. I loved Jane's maternal side too!
