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.

    "Even better than Shiver"

    If you enjoyed Shiver at all (which I did), you should definitely give this book a try. The voices are amazingly well done (especially compared to the Shiver production). I appreciated the "new" characters, Cole & Isabel, because it really relieved what would otherwise be a repetitive and sappy story. Having the very different perspectives allowed the Sam & Grace bits to stay sweet and not become drippy.

    Some have argued that the story rambled in places or didn't accomplish much, but I didn't feel that at all. Just being with these great characters was more than enough to keep me entertained. Also, those who felt that this is just another Twilight ripoff should know that Shiver & Linger are way better than Meyer's saga.

    P.S. The original music by Stiefvater played at the end is excellent. I actually rewound the track to listen to it again! :)

    "Disappointed follow up"

    Loved Shiver but I was kind of bored with this one. The story didn't really go anywhere, and it was really slow trying to get there. I liked the idea that Grace and Sam could switch places, but so much of the book was spent with nothing really happening. The whole relationship between Graces' parents and Sam seemed ridiculous and unbelievable this time.

    Story
    "Only slightly better than the first....."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I started reading this book series on the recomendation of a friend, she and I generally have the same tastes in literature....only this time she was leaning toward her "Nicolas Sparks" tendencies and under reached the mark....


    What could Maggie Stiefvater have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The worst character in this book is Sam. I just wanted to get that out in the open. I cannot believe the character at all and he is too feminine to be attractive. The premis for the story is really good, only the conflict isn't developed, and therefore no good climax and resolution. The whole storyline should have been developed around the problem of Grace changing...only that doesn't happen til the end of the book....so Sam and Grace's whole storyline is a bunch of so much drivel.....I liked this book more than the first in the series because of the developement of Isabels' part and the addition of a new character...Cole....Cole is everything Sam is not and does not spend time droning on and on about how the Isable makes him feel....you see it more in his actions.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I loved the narrators for Isable and Cole, they did excellent jobs....Sam has a new narrator this time around and he sounds even younger and more feminine than the last....he sounds like a kid not a grown up....geesh...I know Grace should sound younger, but honestly, I have two teenage girls, 14 and 13 and they sound much more mature that Grace or Sam....


    What character would you cut from Linger?

    It would of course be impossible since the story is based around them both, but I would cut Sam....

    "Narrator for Sam Reeks!"

    Is it Dan Bittner? Not sure, but he is terrible. Way too slow, practically ignores punctuation, and has very little inflection- almost monotone. Makes me want to skip over his parts, but I just can't do that, so I'm suffering through him. Just wanted to give all a head's up.

    The others are great!

    "Not warm and fuzzy"

    I really liked Linger. Notice I didn't say LOVE like I did with Shiver. This book was good, and I loved listening to it, but I like the first one more. The audio version is great. The young voice actors that read the story are amazing. They switched up the voice of Sam in this novel so now he sounds like a hobbit vs the mentally slow older man that they had for him in the Shiver audio version. It's much better. Sam also sings in this edition. LOVE IT. I did love the Cole/Isable story, this book I think was really about them and Sam and Grace were kind of just side characters. I am looking forward to FOREVER, but I don't think I would have felt too bad if I hadn't read Linger.
    That said, though, I really did enjoy the book and would recommend the trilogy to everyone I know.
