A beautiful story of love and loss and finding yourself along the way. The narrator does a great job at portraying the characters and drawing you deep within the book. I seriously can not wait until fall for Willem's story.
I bought the print version and the audiobook. I started off with listening to it and switched for the last half of the book to reading it. I have to say I read faster than the narrator reads it but I didn't see any drawbacks to either.
Her voice/tone seemed a little different in this book compared to The Selection. It didn't take me long to adjust to it though. I'm glad they kept the same reader because I'm not sure I would have wanted to listen to a new reader for this book.
Well, I finished the book in nearly one sitting. Like I said above though, I switched off to reading it on the second half.
This book brought me on an emotional roller coaster. It's a great follow up to The Selection and it leaves you pretty well wrapped up at the end so you're not sitting on the end of your seat until "The One" comes out. However, on page 305 (hardcover book edition - not sure what chapter it is at the top of my head) I was sure I was going to be angry with the way it was going and had to force myself to keep reading the last 20 or so pages. Kiera Cass does a great job at drawing you into her words and you become very involved with the relationships and characters she writes about it. I highly recommend this to most people I talk to (females, not so much the males) since it really is at the heart a romance novel.
