First off, I have become hooked on Carol Goodman's prose. Her ability to share a combined feeling and sense of tangible words together is rare in an author. To feel as if you are THERE watching and hearing, seeing at the same time... Carol's books are like this. I liked this one for all its teenage themed angst and drama... but I have to say, her books like The Sonnet Lover are a must read. I did like this one, as most all of her fans would ... because we love her work. But, in my personal opinion, based on what I prefer to listen to, this was not her best. However, you'll miss her, and always wonder what you missed... so download it and listen anyway! Besides, Jen does SUCH a great job with her characters!!
I stumbled upon Tana French's Into the Woods and discovered what a great read it was. Or, shall I say, a great listen. Tana French is a fantastic writer with the ability to make you FEEL as if the characters are totally real, and their emotions and decisions and frustrations fit right into your psyche as if they were old friends. This book is loosely a 2nd in a series, as I have already downloaded and listened to her other two first before this one, it seems they are tied together thru some character connections.
If you like the irish accent, soft lilt of a female voice and feeling a book deeply, and being able to picture your characters, download this! You won't be disappointed. And, while you're at it, grab her other two!! She's quite brilliant.
...I gave it my all. All those hours listening, enduring... and the end? Wasted. I was really, really disappointed at how this author chose to end this book. A nutcase and a waste of my precious time!
