I believe I would have loved this story if the reader had not been a nasal laconic reader. Although I finished the entire book, it was difficult because of the reader. I know it was read by the author so that is her portrayal of what she imagined the characters to be, but it prohibited me from fully appreciating the story. She is a talented author, but should have left the reading to someone else.
This was a cute story but somewhat predictable. I am not sure it is one I would recommend listening to. It requires a lot of singing in different voices and it is not extremely enjoyable to listen to the singing.
I could not get into this book. I tried at least three times to listen to it and could not.
The author just seems to want to drag this book out forever. Although talented to a certain extent, this author does not have the enduring ability to make this a seven book series. I thought that a trilogy was adequate. I am constantly annoyed by all the flaws and open ends that of things that are not really possible. I don't mean all the "electric" things. I mean occurrences that happen and he doesn't think of all the loopholes in the story that make it unbelievable. However, my kids love it and so I am stuck reading another book with them. Ugh.
I thought this was going to be a sweet story about someone finding out who she was and understanding herself better. I enjoyed most of the story until a character makes a request of her cousin that goes beyond loyalty and friendship. I felt like I was listening to a soap opera- which is not in my taste. If I would have known this, I would not have bought or listened to the book. However, I did enjoy the reader. She made me forget I was listening to a story. It seemed real.
I really enjoyed the perspective into people's lives that this book provided. It made me see the world in a different light and try to understand the people around me more.
