I LOVED this audio...the story line is a good one and the characters are, for the most part, believable. Caden and Ever's lives are forever and always..Show More » connected through a clever and skillfully crafted idea. I must admit to getting a bit weary of the angst and the 'overdone' letters (too many...we got the idea early on) but the story of how they met as teenagers, went their separate ways, only to stay connected over many years is quite well done and quite lovely. I still contend, as I have for many of the YA/NA books, that teenagers do not have the emotional maturity that is granted them by so many writers...however, given the events in both Caden's and Ever's lives, they maturity is slightly more acceptable. The book does progress through time as does their relationship and when they finally meet again, it is explosive and wonderful. Be forewarned, the book has a cliffhanger ending that will have you screaming for the second installment of their story. The second and third books are not out in audio yet but should be soon. You may want to read some of the reviews of those final two books of the trilogy before pursuing. The problem is not with Ms Wilder's writing skills at all. She is a gifted and powerful mind. It is the story.
As for the narrators/readers, I love both of these folks. Piper Goodever and Gabriel Vaughn read the wonderful Wilder books Falling Into You and Falling Into Us. Ms. Wilder and Audible know a good thing when they hear it and this book is no exception.
This is a very worthy listen...just be aware that there is a price (emotionally) to be paid at the end of this book and with the next two. I read/scanned them and wished I hadn't.
Very high... Not judging any one on this story... I felt sorry for Caden, Eden and Ever. Caden for trying to hang on to be loyal. Eden for mi..Show More »ssing her twin sister. And Ever, so young to be in a comma.
The sex scene was so amazing. I can visualize everything in the sex the scene.
I loved the Ever series. I mostly listened to it, but ended up wanting to know how it finished, so I read the last few chapters.
I got what ..Show More »I wanted! Early on in the third book, I had an idea of how I wanted everything to play out. And exactly what I thought, is what happened. At the risk of being spoilery, everyone makes mistakes, but everyone deserves a chance at happiness too. I'm glad Eden and Ever found theirs.
The only thing keeping this from being 5 stars for me is the time line. It seemed like some sections of each part happened simultaneously, but then a different POV in that part would clearly be a continuing where it had left off. But it didn't take away from the story, my analytical mind just kept trying to rationalize it.
My recommendation...of course read it. But listen to the audible version. These narrators mailed the emotion perfectly!!!
