I really enjoyed this series. I was thinking while I was listening to them they were wordy but I am a VERY impatient person and hate/love suspense so it was killing me not knowing what was going to happen next which actually made them great! I had a few of those, "well I didn't see that coming" moments. I liked the fact there were no long drawn out very explicit sex scenes. I can only listen to those so much before I just want to skip over them! These books kind of reminded me of the Twilight Series in a way. I would recommend them.
I loved this audiobook. I was worried when I read some of the reviews about the narrator but I have lots of unused credits so I thought I'd give it a try and I am so glad I did! I liked the narrator ok. I have heard much worse. The book was great. This is now one of my favorite books. I am so ready for the second book but I don't think it will be out on audio until November! UGH! UGH! UGH! Can't that be hurried up! I can't wait that long!
I listened to about 2 hours of this and was so confused and had no idea how the characters came to be where they were or why or what was happening. I can usually get a mental picture of what I am reading which makes a good book to me but w/this book I couldn't picture the characters or what was happening and frankly didn't want to after my 2 hours of confusion. I was so disappointed because I had such high expectations. I think I will wait next time until other reviews come out before I jump into wasting my credits on something new unless I know the author(s).
I am listening to the series for the SECOND time and finding things I had forgotten or missed the first time. I am 39 years old and maybe remembering my "younger, wilder" days and maybe this is why I am really enjoying the books so much but I do think they are great. I am having trouble finding another series I want to listen to that I think I will enjoy as much. One thing I like about the books is there is not a lot of cursing and no long drawn out explicit sex scenes that would embarrass me even in my car driving by myself! I am really looking forward to Midnight Sun coming out...eventually...hopefully.
After listening to the "Twilight" series, I hate to say I am a little disappointed in the narrator picked for this book. I was hoping the narrator for this book and the "Twilight" series would be the same. I don't really like when women read a man's character with a "gravelish" sounding voice. The Wanderer and Melanie sound the same later in the book so it is a bit hard to figure out who is talking at times. But, being that I just finished the "Twilight" series and jumped right into the "Host," I think maybe my expectations may have been really high for the book and I may be a little disappointed in the book as a whole. I think I will go back and listen to the "Twilight" Series again!
