This novel was mildly interesting. A little too much like Twilight, but I found the main character's backstory adequate. The narrator was very good. Not a great cross over for adults, but not a bad listen. The rest of the series is pure repetition.
This was a good book until about the last 4 or 5 chapters. It was interesting, and had a mild romance, and about the time I thought things would get REALLY interesting, it just took a downturn. I am still a little interested in 'what comes next' for Ever & her adventures to come.....just not sure I liked the 1st book to go for the 2nd. The ending was a little weird, and while I like the unexpected - it fell a little short of my expectations.
I have now I listened and read over 1500 books since 2010. Goodreads.com is a good way to find books and keep track of what you've read.
THIS IS AN OK BOOK. IM NOW TOO SURE HOW THE SERIES WILLTURN OUT, OR IF I'LL MAKE IT THROUGH THE WHOLE SERIES, BUT I THINK IT WAS DEFFINITLY WORTH THE CREDIT.I WILL DEFINITLY GIVE THE SECOND BOOK A CHANCE.
THIS BOOK IS EASY TO LISTEN TO AND THE STORY IS DECENT. IM NOT TOO SURE ABOUT THE NARRATOR.
Good story line, good reader.
Character development was very well done.
Her voice was young but not annoying.
This book was recommended to me. It is another teenage book, first person point of view, with an interesting concept. But like most first persons stories lots of the inner dialog.
And some of the story was random. For instance, Damien appeared in her room. Then it is the next day, next chapter. She attributes this to a dream. I think I would ask questions. Like - how and why are you in my room? I think this was a fainting/mind control scene.
Anyway, the book was recommended by someone who loved it, so I set the speed to 3 and finished it.
This book has a very captivating storyline and never gets boring. Alyson has a way of writing that is quirky and fulfilling. I will read them all.
Didn't make it halfway through the book. That is saying something, I will read anything. The lack of vocabulary didn't bother me as much as her tendency to list events in the order they happened. Instead of explaining the events themselves.
I won't say no. I remember I liked the series and it was my first purchase on audible. I don't remember what the story was about but it was good for keeping me awake on my drive to and from work.
