Fairly short listen, good narrators, somewhat predictible plot. Reminded me of the Matched/Crossed series.
As a fan of most of Vincent's books, I have to say that I enjoyed this particular one the most. The character development and new dimensions to the story has rekindled my interest in Kaylee's story!
I believe I purchased this during a sale, and now I can't remember why it caught my attention. I made it through about half of the book before giving up. The main characters have very little personality and the clash between historical and futuristic fiction is not pleasant. The narration is mediocre and grinds on the nerves. Much of the story takes place in Paris, and the french accent was annoying and the "unknown" accent of the character from the future just sounded like she had a head cold.
This book intrigued me as the description seemed very similar to Anna Godbersen's The Luxe series, which I enjoyed. However, Vixen had three main characters Gloria, Clara, and Loraine, who all do pretty much nothing for the entire book and then in the last chapter all of the excitement and plot occurs. I was disappointed, but maybe my expectations were too high.
The best way to describe this book would be Chicago Gossip Girl in 1920s.
Started this series because I watched the TV show..this third book is just as good as the previous two. If you like George R. R. Martin, I think you will like Terry Goodkind
One of the characters has a thing about capitalizing letters. The narrator, instead of just reading the words as they are (ex. "That"), says "capital T. that". It got annoying when a list written by this character was read
Very anticlimactic. I was disappointed with the writing (relied heavily on poetic interpretation)
Maybe, it was a good enough story, and it wasn't very long, so maybe if you're looking for a short distraction
I actually think it's a lot like Twilight, but with better character development
somebody who has either lived in New England or at least visited and has witnessed a Maine accent
I don't care for Sarah Drew's voice, but I think it matches Lena's character very well.
Very similar to Ally Condie's 'Matched' series.
I did not expect much of this book, I believe I purchased it during a sale. I enjoyed it very much and I liked that while the characters were fantasy based, I was still able to relate to them.
The only thing this book helped with was putting me to sleep. It took a long time (more than half the book) for me to get into it. Although it's an interesting concept, the story was simply not very likeable.
