Like many of you probably, Audible has become my best friend. I'm a huge fan of paranormal fantasies and mysteries.
I’ve read this story a hundred times before, and the sad thing is, this book isn’t even particularly well written. Ever is the most annoying character ever! She is boring, brainless, melodramatic and self-hating. She couldn’t imagine how someone as gorgeous and mysterious as Damen could fall in love with someone like her, normal and plain. Even though she lived in a huge mansion and was described as “beautiful” many times throughout the book, she was still constantly moping around and feeling bad about herself. Sounds familiar huh? All in all, it was a waste of time.
Wonderful, Mysterious and,Breath taking
I like them all.
Katie Schorr has a pleasant voice to listen to, and articulate words well, which facilitates understanding, since English is not mei native language
I don't know. I'm terrible for these things.
This first book could be a single novel, a really romantic and good one.
I adore all the books of the series but specially this one.
I don't speak english and the audiobooks help me to learn it.
I have been listening to and reading a lot of books that are very similar to Evermore and though I did enjoy it I think that Alyson Noel probably made the story harder than it should have been. It also reminded me a little of Lauren Kate's Fallen Series though if I had to choose I would probably go Lauren over Alyson.
Overall not a bad story and I will probably read the sequels, but I found the characters a bit shallow, and some of the elements of the story feel like they've been taken from other books. I didn't really feel the main romance either. The narrator has a very nice voice but completely lacks the ability to modify her tone to bring different characters to life, which sometimes made it difficult to follow who is talking.
