I enjoyed this book. The narrator was very good. The story kept getting more and more complicated as it went on; however, some 'endings' were a bit anti-climatic to me, but overall I liked it.
This was a great story. I loved that a young girl could become a strong woman. The character development was good and the story kept me on the edge of my seat.
I really liked this story. It was a bit improbable, but then I read all sorts of improbable and impossible stories, so it was pretty much right up my alley. I really liked the narrator. She didn't try to make everyone's voice different; she narrated it - told the story as one would do in one's head if they were reading it. I really, really appreciate this. So the performance was first-rate, plus she has such a wonderful lilt! The story was quite intriguing and kept me guessing until the end. A good mystery.
Although this book was in one sense very intriguing, I found I wanted to finally get some answers and get to the end of it so I could start something new. The basic story was good; the narrator was good; but it just took way too long to start answering questions and to come to a conclusion - for me. Others may find it far more interesting, so I don't mean this as a negative review. It just wasn't for me.
Although I enjoyed the first in this series, this one left me a bit exhausted. The story is well-written enough, so I don't want to discourage folks from reading it. It just isn't for me. It is just too much; it goes on and on and on and I was left tired and ready for it all to end. Just not my cup of tea. The performance is fine and the basic story is fine and the character development is fine. I just get tired of the constant scary scene after scary scene...just too much for my taste.
This was a good story and well-performed, however, it is not the type of book I prefer to read. Even though there is a mystery here, it wasn't the 'thriller' type of story I prefer reading. But if you like novels, it is a good story.
I really enjoyed this audiobook. I especially like Davina Porter, in fact, she is why I bought this in the first place. But the mystery of the book was really great as well and, although, suspecting 'whodunnit' several times, I was still surprised how it all came together in the end.
I read the whole thing and had thought I would read the series, but I just didn't care for it all that much. It seem directed more for a younger audience.
I had only read Dracula a few years ago and found it dreadfully depressing. A friend listened to it and said she enjoyed the audiobook, so I decided to try it. I am glad I did! It had a whole different feeling to it with a cast narrating. It is definitely worth listening to even if you are not a fan of the genre.
I bought this book thinking it was more of a mystery than a novel, but that wasn't the case. If I had been reading it, I would have stopped early on because it just isn't the kind of story I care for. However, the person who is the voice of Jack was so amazing that I kept going. It turns out it was actually a good story - still not my cup of tea - and I found myself sitting in the garage listening just a little longer to see what came next. I wonder if I would have liked it more had the escape and capture been more drawn out. But it is definitely worth listening to just to hear Jack.
