The Audible version of this is messed up so much that the plot is impossible to follow. I checked out this audiobook from the library and I liked it. The story was not all jumbled up. Audible needs to do some work on their version.
The sci-fi, romance and characters are all believable. I would like see this book continued into a series.
Neither the romance or the sci-fi overwhelmed the characterizations. The people behaved in the context of the society. I want to know what happens to the politics. Apartheid is inherent unstable. In the midst of the politics, people did their best to be happy.
I think she makes Calla, Nate and the club owner come to life.
Happiness in the face of injustice.
The description didn't do the story justice. I almost didn't listen to it. I'm glad I did.
It was about world changing events in terms of the humans involved. It wasn't a history book. It was a human story in historic times.
I would compare it to Catching Fire. It also was about ordinary people doing their best in horrible times.
She had the good sense to let the power of the story shine.
People survive even Doomsday.
Seen as a fairy tale, it was fun and enjoyable. It was a bit light on the character development.
It was lighter and less realistic.
She did a good job.
The story itself couldn't be continued, but another fairy tale set in regency England might be fun.
I love Karen Robards' books. But this one and it's sequel are horrible. The characters are not true to life. They are so exaggerated and one dimensional. It was too painful to listen to the entire book.
No. I've read enough of Karen Robards books to ignore these two.
The writing was so bad that no narrator could have improved it.
The whole book
