I'm trying to get through all of Wharton's novels- I'd recommend this to a Wharton fan but not necessarily someone looking for that all encompassing "good read". It was scandalous at the time but it sort of has a predictable ending and I wasn't particularly satisfied with the heroine.
There wasn't anything particularly wrong with the reader- I just didn't like her style. The reading felt very clipped and almost rushed.
Listening to Will Patton read this book is truely an experience worth having.
Relief- Dean Moriarity made me tired just thinking about his personality.
I'm not sure I would have enjoyed this book if I was reading it myself, but it really came alive with Patton's great work!
I bought this on a whim knowing nothing about the author or the book, just that the premise sounded interesting. About an hour in I came back and put all of Ms. Jackson's books on my wishlist- she's the kind of writer/reader who tells a great story and someone I wanted to curl up and spend my entire day with.
Suspenseful, indulgent, enjoyable
I liked that I had no idea what to expect and was completely unable to predict what was going to happen next. The author builds the suspense of the story beautifully and I couldn't wait to listen to the next chapter!
The fancy dress ball- where our poor heroine dons an unfortunate costume.
Great book! I'd added several Du Maurier books to my wishlist!
Absolutely not- I read everything and anything they slap Jane Austen's name to! :-D
Crisp, clear, professional
There really isn't anything that I can say that hasn't been more eloquently put in the reviews already. I really enjoyed this book, both the writing and the reader are excellent. It's certainly one I'd recommend to anyone!
It's as funny and as awesome as everyone will tell you it is. DOWNLOAD IT. You won't be sorry at all.
I couldn't stop listening to this book. It's well written, well read and surprisingly quite tense. I highly recommend it!
I couldn't stop listening to this book- it sucked me from the first chapter. And it's not a book that would be just enjoyed by just young adults. Anyone who's looking for something different and something to be completely engrossed in, I would highly recommend downloading this one!
I want to be careful that I don't spoil anything- but I enjoyed this book immensely. The reader is terrific and I revelled in every minute I listened to this book. It absolutely covers the span of what it's like to be a teenager and the emotions and conflicts that are apart of being that. I am newly converted John Green fan, but man, everything I get my hands on, I love.
