I really enjoyed this book and I was surprised by the supernatural element to it. I don't generally pay much attention to the genre of a book before ..Show More »I listen to it, so i didn't realize this was a book about supernatural people. What I really enjoyed about the story was the slow start. It was enough to keep you interested early on, but it only hints at the supernatural abilities of the character.
As the story progresses the author builds the characters very well. I was constantly engaged in the story and even thought about it when I wasn't listening to it, to me that is always the sign of a captivating story. The love story that develops is not over the top and the relationships with the other characters feel real. I don't want to give up too much, but there are tragedies that occur throughout the story that will surprise you.
The performance was top notch, a female reader sometimes has difficulties doing male voices (and vice versa) but I liked that the reader did not try too hard to go for the deep voice on male characters. Her inflections were very good and I never felt annoyed by her intonations as I do with some performers.
Overall the book is a solid 4-4.5 and the performance was a 5 for me. At some point I will get into the other two books as I am excited to find out what happens to the main character.
One more thing I liked was the subtle use of religion i.e.. did the characters powers come from God, but you didn't get the feeling that the book had a religious lean, only that the natural thoughts of a normal person who finds she has these supernatural powers would be that they either came from God or the Devil.
