The story was entertaining in that bubblegum insomnia, I know what's coming next kind of way. Sometimes it's comforting to know who is who.
Twists, turns. Make the teen talk like a teen. I expect that there needs to be some more interaction between the author and the demographic in order for authenticity. Also, the fact that the step fathe 'didn't hit us' so it wasn't abuse' seemed to be sending mmmmm yes the wrong message.
At the the end of almost every sentence it ended in a lilt. Like a question. Otherwise she did a good job.
I did finish the book so there is something to it that kept me listening. The concept is there. Or I'm hooked on the koolaid we all know as the twilight knockoff.
I have 500+ audiobooks with the whole range: SF, fantasy, YA, fiction, humor, romance, classics, mysteries. You get it. This falls in the top 5%.
We are not talking Nobel prize in literature but dang it's a Rockin great way to but a gut.
The TV show was something that brought me comfort and I could watch it over and over. It was like the weather in Seattle. If you don't like the mystery, humor, witty banter, gumshoe storyline, then just wait 10 minutes and you will be served something new.
Yes it kept me on the edge of my seat. There were lots of twists ands turns that all tie into the storyline. The supporting cast give you snappy jokes but also feed you hints.
Ahh Ms Bell brings snarky to sarcasm like no one else does. I can't imagine another narrator portraying Veronica Mars besides her. She also does an outstanding job with the other voices wether male or female.
The part that got me was when Wallace picked Veronica up after her neck gets cut and she leans on his shoulder. She says a good friend is one that lets you be vulnerable while not being weak. Or something to that effect.
Veronica rocks- Audible please buy more?
I listened to the audible version and I have to tell you one star is just for the narrator and her great job with the voices and and the Aussie accents. She was wonderful. So in that aspect yes it was time well spent . The author does a good job flushing out the details - great future slangs, her obsession with The Beatles, how religion has and hasn't changed. There is a big swap at the end which seemed a bit rushed. Any book that you learn something from is worth the time u invest.
Her accent and voices were fabulous. The many cultures that are represented as well as both genders she pulls of great. She helps bring emotion to the characters.
It stands alone. I'm tired of trilogies
This story had an intriguing premise and a fast moving plot that sucked you in BUT whoever decided to add music at the transition of EVERY chapter is daft. Especially, because most chapters are 4- 9 minutes! Over and over again it totally broke the momentum. I liked the characters, interested in the storyline, wanted to find out what happen next if it wasn't for that darn jingle.
