Ok, first I never bash a book. Check out my reviews and you will see. This book was really really terrible. Its the first book I couldn't finish. Even my husband who is an avid reader and writer came in a time or two and asked me what I was listening to, followed with an astonished "Why". I admit, I waited it out hoping it would get better. I finally turned it off unhappy and unsatisfied. I never understood where the author was taking me. The book seemed focused on a strange love and transformation of the main character, and the sexual relations of the two after that. I love a good love story and am open minded when it comes to sex, this was not good at all. The plot was underdeveloped at best, and the characters lacked depth. I am sorry if this book appeals to you, and would love to hear what people liked about the book. For this was the worst pick of the year. If I could ask for a refund or credit on any book in my library of more then 100 audio books this would be the one I'd pick hands down.
This book started out rough, Anna attitude is tough to handle at times, but about an hour into it, the book got a lot better. The story took off and I was hooked, it was just a rough start. Honestly though I am not sure how many more books they can continue to write in this series without really ruining the entire storyline.
This was not exactly a surprise but in the end it was, after the previous book I was not sure if Rachel was going to make it out alive, but she is resourceful.
Ok after listening the the first few books, and becoming accustomed to the first narrator, I thought I wasn't going to make it through the book with this narrator, honestly, couldn't see be able to pronounce the name of the main characters correctly. She totally ruined the book and I only finished because not finishing would have left too many gaps in the storyline and I would not have known what led up to the next book.
Some books are meant for print and others meant to be read aloud, this is not to be read aloud. It is not written in such a way that the narrator can bring life to the characters with making them look fake. I enjoy the author so I thought I would try to listen to the book instead of reading it, my mistake, I will only get these books in print going forward.
Its nice to laugh throughout a book, and to see things from a female perspective. This is read by one of my favorite narrators and written by a great author. The plot is not shallow, and if you read the series each book builds on the last. Its funny how everyone begins to come together as a family in this one. You will enjoy it, promise.
I was looking for a new series, I found this great book. I laughed throughout the entire book, it was really good. I cant wait to see what see writes next.
I loved the narrator, her voice was soothing, this book in general was based in a part of the world that I have never been, therefore my American nature did not allow me to truly appreciate much of the plot, word choice, and descriptions, its a shame, I really wanted to like this book.
Wow, I never thought I would enjoy a book about assassins but I tell you what the Spider is not a typical assassin and she will pull you into her web as well, and you might just agree with her methods. In a world were the weak are crushed by the power struggles of the rich and cruel its not so hard to understand why Gin is the way she is and how hard it is for her to ride the line.
This was a startling book, I admit I was shocked at how quickly I was pulled into this, Rachel is an author I will defiantly read again.
I found it interesting how Abby can find trouble in the most innocent of places. This was an easy and light listen, narrator is good, and keep me entertained on a long trip.
