I would, with the warning that their intro to school is a little slow, but once they are there things are dark and brutal and rather messed up in a way that is often times shocking. I know this is a kid's book, but I sometimes thought it too dark for kids. At times, it often felt like a fairy-tale setting Lord of the Flies, as far as a certain characters spiral into madness. It is a very good and interesting book though. I couldn't stop listening, despite some flaws in the pacing.
I love all the moments when Agatha and Sophie choose each other, though Sophie is a TERRIBLE friend, she does care about Agatha, and that always shines through her petty, shallow, and selfish demeanor. She's still terrible, but you want for her to be better. Agatha is an AWESOME friend. God, I was so proud of characters are several points in this book, like when Hester invited Agatha to be her guest at the No-Ball, and students put aside their differences, when Evil helped Good. Ugh. Loved it.
I have not.
If I could have, I would have.
The book ends as if at the end of the chapter, rather than the end of the book. You want to keep flipping to find out what happens and you can't. It's a cliffhanger ending in a way, so that it and the next book are actually just one big book.
Top five. I really, really enjoyed it. I will listen to this again and probably regularly. I can't wait to get the other books.
There's really not any one moment that stands out in the book, as it's not made of big moments until the final battle at the end of the book. The whole of it is what is amazing, the switching back and forth between Then and Now, that just world builds.
I honestly did not realize it was only two actors voicing this. It sounds like a full cast. It's excellent. Stealth is probably my favorite voice, but St. George (formally The Mighty Dragon) is my favorite character because of who he is and what he stands for, where as she works from an analytic and strategic standpoint, rather than a moral one.
No, but I did listen over a period of days every chance I could.
I very much recommend this book. The world ends, but heroes are still heroes and have a job to do, even when they go from fighting crime to trying to save what's left of humanity. I would love a movie or tv show based on this series.
The Inn was my favorite part, actually. I thought it was very intriguing how it moved and shaped. The alien aspect made it a little too left field.
No, or to give it a try, but read it rather than listen to it.
She was pretty bad. The MC is a blonde white girl living in TX. The narrator made her sound like a cliche black creole woman in New Orleans. All the characters were annoying, which made the romance and interactions not come across the way I'm sure the author intended.
Go find more stories about B&B's.
The story probably would have been more enjoyable with a better narrator. I was able to finish the story, but yells of "OMG BAD NARRATION!" were heard throughout. If there's to be more books following this one, I don't care enough to read them, though.
People who like other bad examples about relationships that are unbalanced, unhealthy, and toxic. Like "50 Shades of Gray".
Not if she wrote a romance. Her characters and their stories were actually REALLY interesting... until they were put in a room together and it was all raging hormones, mind games, ego, and manipulation.
I had not, but she is an excellent narrator I will look up to see what other books she has read. She was LOVELY to listen to.
All the sex. All of it.This story would have been amazing had it actually had a plot. The characters had interesting stories that meant nothing.
This should not be any man or woman's fantasy. This is not healthy or sexy. This kind of behavior should send you screaming as you run in the opposite direction.
