I loved those books. I never wanted it to end. I wasn't a fan of the narrators. I really likes the first narrator. oh well still amazing books and I enjoyed listening to all 6.

Holy cow! I wanted the love this story. Really. The actual story itself is quite good. The narration is just terrible.
This is my third time listening to this series and it is so rich that you find things each time you missed that make it even more compelling. These characters are beautiful and so vividly written.
The narration, particularly Jason Dohring was worse than horrible! Honestly it detracts so much from the story & characters that it is hard to come up with a positive point in the book.
All of it. Siri could have done a better job than Jason Dohring. Sophie Turner was okay but the accent threw things off especially after the other books. The fist book was the only one with a decent narration. If I were the author I would be livid about the narration changes & the negative impact it has on the story.
It took twice as long because I keep zoning out. Jason Dohring would be a great cure for insomnia.
I do not like mushy scenes and there are a few in this book, however, the transition away from physical romance to action is masterfully done. To carry the number of characters, each with thier own personality, desires, hobbies, and struggles through six books is a work of art that is performed at a high level in the entire series, but shines significantly in this sixth installment. Details are deftly woven into the structure of the story and give us a vivid image of events as they unfold from one section to another. The level of description, explanation, and character talk is a fantastic blend and I much appreciate the way character speech comes across normalized and unique for each individual.
