I will not go on to the other books...the story line is predictable, the characters not very deep...it's a light youth read.
At first I couldn't get into this book but by the 3rd chapter it had me and I finished the rest of the book quickly. I found myself looking forward to driving places in the car alone to listen to it more. I'm glad I got the book, it was only $4.95 to purchase and have since read books 2 and 3 and now I LOVE this series and can not wait for all the books to come out. Awesome listen, the series is well worth it.
I'm an adult and I loved this book. Can't wait to listen to the rest of the series. If you like the Twilight books, you'll like these too.
Love a great book that stays with you long after you've finished it.
This one is alright if you pick it up at a low, low price. Not a whole lot of content here, some teenage tension going on, picking fights with each other. If you are looking for a vampire read I would suggest to pick another, there isn't much content here on that subject, but is an easy listen for a rainy day.
This is a really great story, however the Narrator leves you with alot to be desired. I found it very hard to get past the voice to hear the story. But worth the fight.
At first I wasn't too sure I'd like this one, but thought I'd take a chance. I was blown away!! It has an incredible story line and characters. I had to force myself to stop from time to time to take a breath.
This book was good - worth the $3 I spent. The story was interesting, but a bit predictable. Teens could relate to the gossip and clicks. The narration was pretty bad. The high-pitched squeaky voices she used to portray the other female characters was sooo annoying. I never had friends in high school that talked like that.....I don't think I could stand it. Even the male voices (high school students) were bad. She made them sound dumb like Patrick Star from Spongebob. Overall, most of the high school characters were made out to be inferior to the heroine just by they way the narrator read the story. I doubt that is what the author was trying to do.
The storyline was pretty boring.. and the narrator is HORRIBLE. She literally just made different squeaky noises for each character. I really recommend the Sookie Stackhouse series, or Twilight instead! HOWEVER, for $3, it was totally worth it.
