Publisher's Summary

in Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other. Now, in Linger, they must fight to be together. For Grace, this means defying her parents and keeping a very dangerous secret about her own well-being. For Sam, this means grappling with his werewolf past...and figuring out a way to survive into the future. Add into the mix a new wolf named Cole, whose own past has the potential to destroy the whole pack. And Isabelle, who already lost her brother to the wolves...and is nonetheless drawn to Cole.

At turns harrowing and euphoric, Linger is a spellbinding love story that explores both sides of love - the light and the dark, the warm and the cold - in a way you will never forget.

Listen to the previous book, Shiver.

    "maybe 3.5"

    Linger was good but I must say that I enjoyed Shiver (the first book) more. Linger did just that...Linger. I enjoyed the overall story plot but wished it could have been condensed somewhat. I would only recommend reading if you have already read Shiver.

    "Grew on me"

    I read Shiver but decided to go with the audiobook for Linger. One of the reasons I loved Shiver was the dual points of view we get from both protagonists, Sam and Grace. This method of storytelling was new to me and I felt that I knew both characters better by the end of the book because of it. In Linger, Maggie Stiefvater increases the number of unique points of view to four. At first, I felt cheated with having to "share" Sam and Grace time with two other characters. I am glad I stuck with it because Cole and Isabel are excellent foils for Sam and Grace. Maggie Stiefvater remains true to each character's unique personality throughout Linger. The narrators were all outstanding as well.

    "Great Multi-Voiced Production"

    I really enjoyed this audio the multi-voice was just perfect all the narrators were spot on.This was a great story that you didn't want to turn off .Just wish I didn't have to wait till July 2011 for the next in the series and I hope that the next one has all the same voices.

    "Oh poor emo kids."

    The narration in this book is so much better than the first. SO MUCH BETTER. I was on the fence after reading Shiver and I think because the author decided to live in that mindset that we as young adults have. This is the first time we are feeling or understanding this so it is a big deal. A huge deal in fact. Grace and Sam have fallen in love and no matter what her parents say she feels like she will die if she is not with him. That is the intensity that Maggie Stiefvater kept going through out these stories. It becomes a little exhausting after a while, but if you connect to the characters i think it is worth the credit. So if you enjoyed Shiver i think you should get this.

    "Read it"

    Grace & Sam are relatable, their story draws you in, holds you till the end. 2nd time reading this series is still just as good as the first. It's a series that sticks with you. Read it.

    Story
    "Maggie's writing is like poetry"
    What made the experience of listening to Linger the most enjoyable?

    I love hearing the voices of Sam, Grace and Cole, but not Isabel.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Linger?

    When Sam was made to leave Grace's hospital room, and said "my life is in this bed"


    What does Jenna Lamia bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jenna sounds like I imagine Grace would. She's a great voice actor.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Cole made me laugh, and Sam made me cry. I was blown away when Shelby killed Olivia.


    Any additional comments?

    Really dislike Emma Gavin's voice, Isabel would not have sounded like her.

    "Couldnt even finish the Book or Series"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't think I would finish the book or series...


    Would you ever listen to anything by Maggie Stiefvater again?

    I would.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    It did, the narration was not the issue; the story was.


    Any additional comments?

    I did not finish this book or series. I have a friend that read it with me and did not like it. I think the story is there but the execution was not good.

    Story
    "A surprisingly good sequel"
    What made the experience of listening to Linger the most enjoyable?

    The story was still really rich and well thought out. The performance by Jenna Lamia was still fantastic. The addition of the other characters and narrators was amazing! It made the story so incredibly rich, I couldn't believe! The story was full and meaty and left me extremely happy that I'd already downloaded Forever so I could go right into the next part of the story!

    The story was really such a nice pace for me. It kept rolling forward but lingered in places where I felt like was warranted. I would have liked a bit more intimacy between Sam and Grace--not necessarily sex scenes, but I felt like it was lacking at times (though it was warranted at other times).

    The addition of Isabelle and Cole's voices were great and I really enjoyed their development and tension to the story.
