But having a British narrator for a book set in the US is really, really weird. Felt like they were a little too desperate to try and capture some of the magic of the Harry Potter books.
This was a really fun read. The characters were well written and the plot was compelling - went straight from this book into the sequel and am currently itching for the third installment. The narrators are incredibly good and really help make the world feel real.
I just devoured Burn for Burn and Fire with Fire and was especially excited to read this book since Will Smith is developing it into a film but this was incredibly disappointing. The plot felt incredibly uninspired and while I like the authors style she has written the protagonist as though she is 12 and not 16.... Would suggest trying a different Jenny Han book instead.
I hadn't read this book in years and experiencing it once more through Stephen Fry's excellent narration was a complete joy.
The kind of series that makes you wonder why you wasted so much time reading it. Each book became stupider and by the end you really can't help but wonder why the author thinks you should care about any of it. Save yourself the agony of this one, I wish I had.
Fascinating behind the scenes glimpse at one of the most bizarre film productions. Entertaining and well read.
I have followed this case for years and was always surprised that the victim seemed uninterested in continuing to prosecute Polanski - and in this book she finally gets the chance to explain why and add her own voice to this discussion. The book is very well written and her narration is very professional.
Great Book and fantastic performances. Well worth a listen. I couldn't turn it off and listened to the whole thing in one sitting!
I bought this book because Steve Spielberg's production company sold it to the CW describing it as "being in the vein of Buffy and The Vampire Diaries." It's not. It's really boring, the character is unlikable and the world is uninteresting. It's been a long time since I've struggled to finish listening to a book, but I just couldn't bring myself to care about what happened. Definitely won't be reading the next installment.
This story is very predictable but it is proficiently written - although far too long for a middle grade novel. Chris Colfer's fake british accents are incredibly annoying. This book doesn't really feel fresh but Colfer (or his ghost writer) is a capable writer who is able to bring these cliches to life.
Another great teen novel. Interesting to see a flawed character trying to become a better person. Sarah Drew does a good job bringing the words alive.
