Did not read print version, although the story did start off very slow to me and took a little too long to get started, sometimes I can deal with that better when it's in printed version and I can scan and skip ahead. But I really loved the voices and narration, and am not sure how well that would have been in print.
Definitely. This was a fun book and once it got going, I couldn't stop listening and really wanted to find this in movie format after, sadly it is not.
Hmm. Hard to say, she was great for all the characters.
Laughed. It's not a tear jerker. It's not total comedy either, just just great interactions between Lord Mccon and Alexia.
The first scene is intriguing and jumps right into it. But then they just talk about what happens for FAR too long and it got boring. Almost to the point that I was going to quit it. Perhaps it was the narration, or the fact that I knew there had to be something more that should happen from the book description, but I'm glad I trudged through it because then it got really entertaining. This was not a teen/young adult romance story in the way of other trendy supernatural books, but was more a good story about love amongst different social classes and how that balances out with society. I'm not sure it did ever specify the year, but it seemed victorian era-ish to me. It just so happened that the different social classes rather than being so much about wealth it was human/vampire/werewolf. I just loved all the main characters, they were each so well drawn and a great combination of characteristics. I rate the story a 3 only because the first quarter of the story I felt was wasted with too much talking and retalking about the first scene and it took too long to take off. Also, I see that there is a sequel, which I will get around to reading eventually because I want to experience these great characters again, but the story didn't leave me hanging or needing to immediately get the next book. Which in somes ways is a relief, but I could get lost in another series now before I get the next book and then forget about it since there isn't much I'm dying to find out what happens with.
