I love, love this book, the person who is reading it is terrible... it's making my favorite book really hard to enjoy!! he is to fast!! AAAARRRGGGGHHHH
Someone else to read it, someone going slower making me engage in the story!
The performer speaks way too quickly, like he's rushing through the book most of the time, and he mispronounces the name of the main character's little brother's name as "Codder" instead of "CauLder"... Seems like this could have been avoided if he had listened to the first book. Whenever there is a series, the subsequent performer really needs to match the energy level of the first reader. I really want to hear the story, otherwise I would just remove this title from my library.
A reviewer at Guilty Indulgence Review Site. I don't go anywhere without a book -ebook or audiobook.
... that this book is focused on young adult characters so it's full of angst. The emotional plot has plenty of twists, but its the beautiful poetry that makes the series special. And the characters will definitely tug at your heart. This series will stay with me for awhile to come.
The narrator ruined this story for me. It was a very flat performance, devoid of emotion. It was hard for me to even switch to reading the book on Kindle after I'd heard some of the narration, because the awful narrator's voice was in my head!
The character of Will is self assured and charismatic. The narrator did not convey these traits and ruined the character for me. Read the book and skip the narration.
It was hard to follow to story because the pauses between the end off the sentence abs the beginning of the new sentence were to short.
The narration and technical recording really ruined this story. It's sounded like one Looooooong sentence. No emotion, heaving breathing into the mic and no phasing between sentences and chapters. I had to keep rewinding to figure out who, what, where and when.
I'm not sure if the authors listen to the recordings, but if they do they should pull this one off the shelf
The storyline was pretty good but when you are listening to a book, it is all about the narrator and this one was not good at all! In my mind...in the first book, Will was strong and athletic! In this book, due to the reader, Will is a wimp! I would have enjoyed the book much better had a different narrator been used!
Are you kidding! Who ends a book that way...guess someone who is writing a 3rd book to the series. I know series leave you hanging but this one just seemed to end so abruptly that I thought something was wrong with my phone. I liked the book. Not as much as the first but it was still a good listen.
