Yes, absolutely! Beautiful read and well-wriiten, it drove me into an almost trance-like hazy. The world so realistically sculptured by both Ian and Juliet, I began to feel like I came home to the story at the end of the day.
The ending was one of those, "oh my word, did I hear that right?" moments. Rarely do plots surprise me, this one did and for that I am grateful
Yes, she is one voice that neither intrudes on the story nor fails to instil the necessary emotion - she is the perfect balance
Fabulous book from a great author, exquisitely read!
Yes and in fact I have! It's a great follow up to the first book, and WOW the story went up a notch!
Oooh, to tell that is to tell the story! But, one feels that pain of the characters and that stands out for me.
There is definitely a sense in this book, this is just the tip of a very big iceberg. As with many series, I felt cheated that it ended on a cliffhanger, and hungry for the next book!
This book breaks down some very difficult, new concepts into bite sized, actionable and authentic pieces. Brene's narrative examples makes it easy to relate to, and apply.
This narrator has possibly the most monotone, and I appropriately placed emphasis I've experienced in over 500 hours of audible books. It is in such sharp contrast to Brene that it detracts, I listen despite her.
Since discovering Brene, I have said all her work with every friend, family member and colleague I can. Buy it, read it, live it!
The Tris / Tobias elements were enjoyable in an otherwise tense story
This is a good development from the first book, a great expansion of the story. However, I was bitterly disappointed in Book 3 so it's tainted my perception of the whole series.
Enjoyable is a difficult word to apply to Hunger Games, The world is harsh and the challenges faced cruel but it is captivating, pacy, intriguing!
Katiniss is a tough lady and whilst I admire her bravery, I relate easier to Peeta, he is such a honest and kind person in a very unhappy world.
In the written version, one paces over some of the descriptions in an effort to know what happens next, McCormick lets you savour both the good and the bad.
Definetely, don't plan anything if this is your first exposure, clear the diary...for the next two books that follow too.
Read first, movie second is my recommendation
The most memorable moment is at the end of the story and to speak of it her would be to give some of the surprise away, but the characters interact in a most heartwarming way.
Fabulous, they both conveyed the emotion of the moment beautiful and offered a lovely contrast to one another.
Dragons, Music, Royalty and Mystery, what more could you want!
This book is so interesting partly because it's a new mythology, I love a new world, new rules! Each character is beautifully crafted and I am so glad a follow-up is due!
Love in its complexities
Rose's first dance is a hysterical story that will live long after the book as well as her hours in the bookshop.
That's a tricky one, I appreciate Rose's spunk and Alec's sensibility and openness.
Every moment is so honest, you cringe, blush, laugh and love with the characters, you move with them.
Delicious book, to be served as comfort. It isn't unpredictable or twisty just honest and lovely!
Absolutely! It elegantly and humorously conveys the importance of accepting imperfections within ourselves. More than that, it highlights how differently men and wonen experience the world.
Brene's stories make the theory so very much lighter and easier to remember, she keeps you giggling!
This question doesn't really apply to this sort of book, but Brene being Brene is awesome!
I found Ed a great contrast to Molly, though I wish they would settle on one kind of narrator. In book 5 we only get Molly and the previous 3 have all been read by different people. The discontinuity does the story a disservice. I particularly like these 2.
What a great way to kick off a new trilogy (/ continuation from the first trilogy) and all we took for granted goes out the window! Quick paced, witty, and dark, it is a delight from beginning to end and its a quick roll from 4 to 5 and then join in the anticipation for book 6!
Difficult question! This book is harsh, brutal and heartbreaking. Very little distracts from the emotional (awful) journeys each character goes through but WOW is it beautifully written, I was enraptured, caught up, taken with and subsequently smashed along with each person. I loved it but it was draining!
Take care, and make sure you are up for some of the tough topics of reincarnation, rape, torture, slaughter, hangings and many many more emotionally brutal relationship orientated interactions. It is a sharper version of the first book, I will definitely be reading the third and revisiting this one, it is a mindset shifter.
Moving, paradigm-shifting, comforting
She is authentic, vulnerable, hilarious! She makes a tough journey fun and enjoyable, it is thoroughly entertaining!
Buy it, listen to it, listen to it again, share it with every friend!
