Not that this is a bad thing all the time. Like, for example, when I discovered my bedroom is haunted by Jesse, the ghost of a 19th-century hottie. While I haven't made much progress with him (only one kiss so far), I remain optimistic. Jesse's inexplicable resistance to my charms is not my only obstacle, though: there's this other guy. A live one, who has the same gift of gab with the undead I have. In the same way I'm after Jesse, this guy is after me. And he knows how to send Jesse to the Great Beyond. For good.
So I guess you could say I'm haunted. I just never thought it would be by someone who isn't dead.

"[Teens] will enjoy meeting the brave, nonchalant heroine and following her romantic dilemma." (Booklist)
I really love the series! I also enjoyed the nararrator for the first 4 books, but I'm having a hard time with the new one... I just think her voice is all wrong for the series! She makes Paul sound like an old man, Jessie sould like a smooth talking guy with devious intent, and Suze sound like Ceecee would! Hopefully they will have someone else be narrator for the next book, or better yet, the old (and I think best) one.
The other books are presented wonderfully. This narrator makes the characters seem whiny and silly... what a bummer for such an important book in the series.
The story is great but this narrator changes the personality of all the characters abd not in a good way. The parents are not snide in the previous books ... and the character Jesse sounds creepy as well as many of the others.
The previous Narrator Johanna Parker did a superior job by far - it would be fantastic to have this audio book redone by her. I gave the book a 3 because I like the series. If I had to rate the narrator I'd give it a 1. I don't plan on buying any of the audios moving forward and will read the books instead.
I enjoyed this book from meg cabot, it kept you guessing. I am hopeing that audible gets all the series available to download. I would like to find out what happens in the next of the series!
Someone who doesn't mind the story being chopped up into a shorter, less interesting rendition of the original.
Yes, I have enjoyed reading her books for years. They are entertaining and well-written. This is my favorite series by this author. I had hoped to get audible versions of them, but not all are available. This one doesn't really count since it's not the complete novel.
The previous narrator.
The book is good, but it's not very long. I would not cut anything. Actually, I wanted the complete narration, not half the story.
For a book that's less than 300 pages in its entirety, only offering an abridged edition makes no sense at all. It's only two hours long. As a general rule, I don't care for abridged audiobooks, and would not have purchased if I had realized. I'm usually more careful, but this one got buy me. Very disappointed in this one.
This is one of my favorite books! I don't really like the narrator. The other audio books in this series have a narrator that reads just like I remember reading the characters myself over ten years ago. This one, though, makes Suze sound whiny, Father Dom sound feeble, Brad sound even more annoying than he is in the book, and Jesse sound like a villain. It's confusing to say the least.
