Not really. For most of this book nothing actually happens. The first 90% of this book is predominately two separate monologues, not just because it is being read by one person but because it is written mostly as the thoughts of a single person without very much interaction with other characters. The book being written as a monologue is not the worst part its that during most of this monologue NOTHING happens....literally nothing significant at all.
The ending was what actually won me over. I originally was only going to give this book one or two stars but the ending was so good that even though reading most of this book was pointless and waiting for something to happen the ending was really good. A lot happened and it "finished" the book to a point where you weren't left wondering too much what would happen to the characters.
Another one of Brandon's performances yes I would try but not another one of Phoebe's performances. No insult intended but she read the character in a very annoying way that originally was unbearable to listen to. I had to get used to it but even sometimes I would get distracted from the actual book by the fact that I found her reading of the character horrendously annoying.
No I definitely could not. The book moves too slowly, the monologue style would not be entertaining to watch and the book is not well written enough or the plot well thought out enough to compensate for the other flaws.
The story was ok but the performance was great. I liked that they had multiple voices for the different characters. Not a must listen to but if you are interested by the background then I'd say give it a try!
The storyline is good though a little bit cheesy and predictable but the trashy novel sex descriptions ruin it. I'm not into books like that anyway but listening to someone else read those descriptions out loud was just too creepy for me so I couldn't even finish the book.
