Jennifer No. Rebecca yes.
plot.. story... anything.
I would have cut just about every other page. I'm no prude, but sex without a story line is is just bad porn. I don't think she even tried to create a good work of fiction. The even sadder thing is that there are so many books in the series. What does that say about women in our culture today? Just sad.
If it seems like I didn't say much here its because I thought I would stay with the authors theme. Oh.. minus the bad porn.
I have been thinking about listening to this book for a long time. I had it in my wish list for over a year. I should have left it there. There is something about the reader that makes the main character sound about 13 years old instead of an adult who is living on her own in New York. It's more like a high school cafeteria. I feel bad for the author. Sorry Meg.
No, I just couldn't take her seriously.
Anyone. Maybe even Emily, if she had used a different voice.
No. but I might buy it in book form.
There could have been some cohesion in the story line.
I just couldn't get past the readers voice, she sounds bored or half asleep. There was no change in her tempo with the action in the story.
I know there are follow up books. I doubt I will listen because the reader is the same.
As I started the book I realized this was the second time I had tried to listen to it. I just couldn't do it.
I was very disappointed in this book. I have to admit I was moved by the fact that it was a long novel, and that it was an extensive series. I never want a good book to end. The small amount that I listened to here was clearly about sex, which is fine with me, I like sex. But the narrative droned on and on. I was also some what unsettled by the content of training young 10 year olds to be adepts in houses where they will service the wealthy. Yes call me a prude if you like, I am not one, but there you are. The main heroine discovering that she loved pain at age 7 was the turning point. I stayed with her until she was deflowered and I could take no more. All that being said I think I would have traveled on through it if the narrator was not so boring and monotone. There was no change in inflection at all from character to character. Horrid content, boring reader, and too much court intrigue. Blah
