I would listen to it again in order to follow the story since it's a continuation of the first book & leads on to the third
Old story in modern day setting, the sense of nostalgia, romance & danger
She's not bad as narrator, but she's not overly brilliant either
This is already a TV SERIES named after the book
It's easy listening.
I like how the story melts between the life of a young 12 yr. old who finds herself struggling and dealing with her own afterlife as well as what happened in her life before she had an afterlife, and her interaction with her "spiritual guide" and dog who accompanies her.
There's a scene where the dog is facing his fears of separation, & how the girl manages to help him overcome that fear - very touching description.
The scene where the dog was curled up & in fear did make me feel for him.
Get this book if you like teenage-slightly supernatural -animal loving & very slightly romantic stories.
If you're used to hearing & using curse words & rude language in general & only care about erotica, go for it. I've heard cursing & rude language in my life, but I found this book to be so riddled with SO MUCH & terrible bad language (& that's putting it lightly), & I don't see myself to be the prude type. I had to delete this off my iPod, because I couldn't stand it anymore.
Do NOT get this if you are hoping to get someone else's take on the apocalyptic four riders and some spiritual insights or ideas.
Absolute not! I hated this book, & don't plan to get any others from her.
The performer did okay. I think the book's bad language didn't help me concentrate on the performance itself.
I forced myself to listen to about 3 hours of the book, hoping it would get better- it didn't.
