The Narrator was boring, I am not sure if he was instructed to read slow to intensify the story or if this is his normal thing. It took forever to get the story line going and then once it finally got going the story was over. Next you know epilogue.
Possession by J.R. Ward
Better Narrator, way better story line. This story line is an adaptation of Twilight.
The warewolfs had nothing to do with this story line. Why did they waste two chapters!?!?!?
I very seldom hate books but this book was a waste of my time!!!
I would try another book however the thing that gets me regarding this book is that it is so full of details that at times your mind will drift away from the content of the book. It's very easy to drift if you are listening to this book while driving a long distance.
I really hated that the book dragged. It kept you itching to fast forward to find out what is going to happen next because the details were so exhausting however at times you found yourself rewinding more often than not because your mind has drifted away from the narrative.
Louis Gossett, in my opinion was only working with what he had to work with, his voice was wonderful however the story line was just so long.
None they all played meaningful parts. However I would have developed the wife's role because I would have wanted to know her mindset. Her husband was missing for 12 years and I as a reader wanted to know transpired with her family life during his absence.
I am a JR Ward fan. I loved her other books and this is my first time straying away from the Brotherhood. The Narrator is great, and I am glad that he was otherwise I would have been quick to leave this book. The story line was okay.
Jim Herron and the fact that he is an angel. Not the best angel but at times realistic enough to believe him.
I loved Eric G. Dove's performance. He kept me enthralled in the book. I am glad it was him and not someone that would lose me in their monotone.
It does not need a follow up. It was complete enough there was nothing left to say.
Yes. I love the main character. He appeared in a previous book of Showalter. So he did not need to be developed in this book. I was so ready for him in this novel because I really wanted to see if he was going to be the same in this novel.
I loved seeing the vulnerability of the characters involved. I loved to see their dynamics and how they would overcome their challenges.
I love Max Bellmore, because even though he's in many of Showalter's novels I am still in awe that each character is different. He lends each character a different voice and I am able to distinguish between the characters.
I just love Showalter so I was entertained on all levels.
I wish it did not take so long to get to the main part of the story. It just took so long to develop the characters.
I like the quirkiness of the main character. I do however love the part where the author enabled the reader/listener to be privy to each character's thoughts at one point in the story. I love things like that as oppose to having only one character sharing his/her thoughts. I do like that once the pinnacle of the novel was reached there was some development of things that transpired after the match was made.
I loved her voice and her detail to giving each character his/her own personality
No, not enough of a story line for a movie or tv series
I love the fact that Kai is a Harpee. She's another fun character.
Kai is my favorite character because as stated before she is fun and her family of Harpees are fun as well.
I think Mr. Bellmore is a steady for me. In each book in this series he delivers. He gives you variation with each character and thus helps you identify the characters with ease.
The book did neither. I do think that the author spent a long time with history and making it vivid yet at times it just seem drawn out. But if you can get pass that you should be ok.
I loved the vunerability of Amun. I really loved the fact that he's a Lord yet he is vulnerable for the first half of the book and yet he's fair and extremely patient.
I loved Max Bellmore and his narration. He brought about a great cadence. Each character had a different identity and and it was easy to identify each.
I loved the fact the the trials that Amun and Haidee went through ended up teaching them a lesson at the very end. It also left you with a sense of suspense when you think one thing and yet the author allows you to be satiated at the very end.
I recommend this book and I also recommend that you read these books in order.
I liked The Darkest Passion. I was surprised that this book would be interesting to me and the most thus far in the series. I really loved the narrators spin on the voice he uses with the demons in this story. I loved the author's use of the demons to bring comic relief at times and make you pay attention to them, for their characters are just as important. I loved the love play between the two main characters. I loved the dilemma.
The love scenes and how they can never complete them like they are suppose to be completed.
When Legion burst in during Aeron and Gwen's afterglow.
I laughed a lot at the book. It was a wonderful laugh and I listen to excerts of this book every now and then to gather tid bits when listening to other books in the series.
I like the narrator he really did an excellent job with the different characters. I loved the way the author kept the storyline interesting with the different play of words and jokes. The main character Anya is fun and funny at the same time shows vunerability that is believable. The things that she has to go through to get the attention of her man is wonderful however at times it can become a little frustrating.
I loved both Anya and Lucien. Mainly Anya is the light weight of the story with keeping the story light when her beau Lucien is serious for the most part and she brings fun to his character.
Anya mainly because she at times is a complex character.
This book would be for someone that wants to listen to the narrator go on and on regarding detail only because the aurthor wanted to describe how the character lathers his soap and how the big the bubbles are. This book went on and on and on about nothing. There were maybe two love scenes not thatmattered but I was like damn is he ever going to get the girl or move on. The story just has too much un-needed details.
No not from this genre of book but if I had not already purchased the rest of this series I would definitely stop listening after this book. I struggled through the book prior to this one in this series with hopes that it would get better. I liked the first two books but this book and the previous one are really pushing me away. I am going to finish the series but it has to get better.
Sure, the narrator is not the problem he's doing a good job. It's the author.
I can't say enough how much this was a waste of my time. Ugh!!!!
