If you're in the mood for a heart-pounding morality tale, this is the book for you. This seventeenth-century classic has survived all these years for many reasons, not least of which is that it portrays Satan as a sympathetic hero. Narrator Simon Vance is equipped with a forceful British accent, which he uses to accentuate the text and bring the story to life. His subtly changes his tone and emphasis as the story moves from heaven to hell to earth, and he enables us to appreciate the story's different personalities without providing character voices. Vance's most effective attribute is his ability to interpret epic poetry by delivering the lines with rhythm and superb pacing.
Now that Cheyenne's murderer has been revealed and Reed knows the truth about who's been stalking her, she's ready to leave the heartache and turmoil of last semester behind. And what better way to recover than a five-star Caribbean vacation? Reed is reunited with former Billings Girls Kiran and Taylor, and she and her friends take over the exclusive island. They spend their days tanning on white-sand beaches and their nights partying on 60-foot yachts. It's heaven on earth. But as they raise their champagne flutes to toast their friendship, Reed worries that it's all too good to be true. Because even in paradise, the Billings Girls are never far from trouble---and nothing's more dangerous than the calm before the storm.

As I did really like this book I was sad to see that josh wasn't apart of it. I know he had to care for his girlfriend but still would have liked that he showed up and that he and Reed would have gotten back together. But I do wish Reed would stop being the middle man of everything. However I did like the story nonetheless.
