No. Henry Leyva did a great job narrating, but I found Rebecca Solers portrayal of Renee grating.
Honestly, I didn't have one.
The warden made me angry, so I guess the story did cause some emotion.
Ted Dekker wrote a great story. And I did find myself going through many emotions. As much as I despised the "mean" characters, I would have liked to have had a backspace key to omit Renee from the book. I found her character to be whiny and irritatingly bratty. If someone had tied her up and put duct tape on her mouth during the whole ordeal I would have been happy.
I been spoiled with audio books. I wish I had checked to see if the rest of this series was available on Audible before listening. It's not. I really liked this, and would gladly read the rest of the series, but alas they are not available. ;(
It's 3:30 AM, I should be in bed and had to FORCE myself to stop. This one is worth the credit. One hell of a mystery!
I thoroughly enjoyed this! I listened in one sitting. The writing was original, one I hadn't heard of before. I enjoy Rachel Caine's Morganville Vampires and this was a refreshing change! Truly looking forward to book 2.
I felt like I was observing the crime scene. It was a book, yet I was the detective taking notes...It truly was a fun mystery. I would absolutely listen to this type of book again. If you're bored and want an easy, fun listen. Give this a try!
I tried several times to finish it. I kept thinking it was my mood at the time. No, after 4 tries, I stopped. I found myself daydreaming or forgetting I was even listening to a book. Don't bother.
Interesting idea, it just bombed.
With this strictly being my own opinion, I found this boring and didn't finish. I'm not sure I can even blame the book itself. I have loved Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, although she should have stopped a long time ago. I think I'm bored with her type of book for now. I couldn't give this less than 3 because it wouldn't be fair, Evanovich is a wonderful author. I also couldn't give it more than 3 because I didn't finish it.
Of course. Omens was fast paced, moved smoothly and kept me interested. I enjoyed the characters, and the story line. I will definitely listen to the next.
Wait for the 2nd book.
Sometimes when I purchase a book, I find myself unable to get into it, which was the case of Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Entertainment Weekly highly recommended it. I've tried to listen to this twice and have since found out it's supposed to be a movie. Perhaps I will watch the movie, andthen be able to read the series. Or maybe the author is able to describe what I cannot imagine. The fault is more than likely with me.
Listening to this book got me through all my laundry, and housework, so yes definitely time well spent. The bonus was, enjoying the book made the time go by rather quickly!
Since this book was written for young adults, I would say Richelle Mead did a wonderful job. With that being said and being a 57 year young adult, (LOL) I enjoyed it too! Unfortunately, listening to the first book in the series, Vampire Academy and having to suffer through the other narrator is is necessary to set up the story line and characters. Once you get through that, it's smooth sailing and worth it.
I can't think of one particular scene, but I did enjoy the scenes with Adrian.
Get book 3.
I've been curious about this series, but was never sure if I should read it. Most reviewers have said this book is necessary to set up the characters and the story. With that being said, I enjoyed the book, and I have purchased the 2nd book, Frostbite.
My biggest complaint was with the narrator. The character Ralph sounded like he had a cold, and Lissa sounds like a 6 year old. If someone can't change their voice, they shouldn't try.
