Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Another good book, but like in the last book it spent too much time on Hatch's megalomaniacal point of view. Of course the first book was the best. I like all of the electroclan members and enjoy watching there interaction and friendships. There are still so many questions that need to be answered, that I will defiantly be getting the next book. There are lots of complaints about the narrator change. It had been over a month since I listened to the last one and the narration change didn't bother me. Of course Fred Berman is one of my favorites but Kirby Heyborne is good too.
This story was decent. More character development of the elctroclan and more unique emotions as they realize the world is more dangerous and luck isn't so kind when death comes a knocking.
Kirby hayborn does try to meet the various characters inflections. However I find his voice soothing and ca for some of the excitement. Better for the inner monologue of Michael
When a good narrator brings a character to life don't kill it by changing narrators. Thats no disreapect to Heybourne. He does not tell the same story as Fred Berman...
Kirby Heyborne was a step down from the previous narrator in the first two books. character voices would often get mixed up leading to confusion in some of the dialogue.
story was good. the good bye scene before the final battle left me cringing. the introduction of the red headed Tessa had a familiar ring... lightning thief's Rachel.
at this point, I am wondering if Evans will be able to keep the story fresh for the remainder of the series.
The characters are great . some may find the amount of characters daunting to keep up with , I however , love that. it really brings a depth to the book and keeps you engaged. like others have said, I wasn't as thrilled with this reader though. I thought the first reader captured their personalities through his voice, this one, although he was a great reader, was more bland and didn't seem to have the same enthusiasm. but that may also be because I had already listened to the first reader.
