This book was surprisingly sexy and full of the traditional vampire cliches...no sunlight, crosses, holy water, etc...the narrator is one of the best of heard. There was a vast difference between her voice in narration and the voice of the characters. I'm excited to listen to the series. You'll like this if you like the "White Trash Zombie" series by Diana Rowland.
Arcadia is truly frightening and slightly reminiscent of the present. I wish the series would get on with the romance and allow the characters to grow and change. It contains the same good butt kicking though.
I read a lot of dystopian but in never breaches the subject of abortion or questions a parent's love. The themes of this book are surprising; you loose and gain your faith in humanity while listening.
A lot less of Angel's problems with her father and relationships, a lot more action and zombie science. Allison McLemore is flawless as always.
I was glad to finally listen to one of Mead's adult books. The future world she creates is very believable and full of detail. I was surprised everything wasn't explained at the beginning of the book, as Mead usually does. It got a little frustrating but then I read a review and understood that explanation would come. The supernatural element is very different from any other book I've read. This is a unique series.
I wasn't sure I was going to like this book in the beginning but as soon as the plot started to form and Aria began to change, I was hooked! I'd like there to be two narrators for the male and female parts in the age group corresponding to the characters.
This is very much like Sandford's earlier Davenport books, being on the hunt for a serial killer. The ending was quite shocking. I hope one of the new characters introduced in the book will get her own series.
This series is very imaginative and like no other Iv''e read. There are 2 types of vampires, one who can't defend themselves. The movie really didn't do the book justice at all.
This series keeps progressing well and Syndey is learning that she is so much more than her job with a surprising outcome.
This book did not match up to The Giver. Half of the book was spent discussing thread. The people lived and acted like Neanderthals yet were concerned about pieces of art and singing, depicting the past and future.
The book has a good plot but I think it's terribly frustrating for an adult to read. SPOILERS: Emma is being terribly abused but won't say anything because she doesn't want her cousins to loose their mother. Logic would say that she could end up abusing Emma's cousins as well. When she ends up in the hospital, when teachers try to confront her, she says nothing then it nearly ends in tragedy. I don't understand why the book was 14 hours. The story could have been conveyed in 7.
