It’s often hard to go from reading a book in print to listening to an audiobook. You already have a voice in your head or you have an idea of how the ..Show More »characters would say certain things. If the audiobook strays from that too much, the audiobook isn’t enjoyable. I’m happy to report that this was a seamless transition. I suppose the months between my first reading and this listen had a little bit to do with that. But Alex McKenna is pretty awesome. She has a great voice for A’s character. It’s not super girly, but it’s not exactly boyish either. It’s a bit husky for a female and it really works for A. There’s a good distinction between A’s voice and Rhiannon’s voice, so that’s good. A’s voice stays the same throughout the book. I always thought it would have been cool if they hired different people for every day, but I think this works better. The story is told in first person so it makes sense that A’s voice is consistently the one he hears in his head. McKenna demonstrated emotion, took cues from the text, and delivered the lines smoothly. It was a great audio experience. I recommend giving it a listen.
I had to get this book, despite the negative review, just because I loved every day so much!I'm going to make this short and sweet because I'm typing..Show More » on my phone, and I'm not very good at reviewing anyway... Is this as good as "Every Day?" No. Is it worth reading? Yes! Only if you've read "every day." This is essentially the same story shown through Rhiannon's eyes. This book isn't nearly as captivating as "Every Day," but it fills in some missing pieces. With this book, you get the whole story. Rhiannon and I have a love hate relationship. I hate how she jerks "A" around, but at the same time... I can understand why it's so hard to give herself to someone who is going to be someone different every day. Love is love. But attraction plays a big role in things whether we realize it or not. The narrator did well most of the time. The only complaint I have is that sometimes she makes "A" seem like a robotic, empty, shell. Almost as though I'm listening to Siri. This may not have bothered me or been apparent if I didn't listen to the first book. Basically, it's a good book. If you're like me and loved every day, it's worth a read. You get to be inside the head of the person that "A" wanted to give It all up for. You get to see what happens when they're not together, and what's going through her head when they are. Aaaaand that sums it up.
