Had a hard time hearing the narrator when she attempted the male character voices and that detracted from the story. Overall story was entertaining, but I was wanting to just get it done- not enjoyable read

Story line was good, there was a good message built into the story. I found it lacking though, somewhat tiresome reading.

Meg Cabot, the number-one New York Times best-selling author of the Airhead novels, offers up this second exciting installment in her Abandon trilogy. In Underworld, John Hayden is holding 17-year-old Pierce Oliviera captive in the world between heaven and hell - supposedly to keep her safe from the vengeful Furies. But Furies aren’t the only danger in this ominous place. Somehow, Pierce has got to find a way to escape - before she’s trapped there forever.

After a sad and neglected childhood as an orphan, Jane Eyre was hired by Edward Rochester as governess for his ward. Jane was pleased with the quiet country life at Thornfield, with the beautiful old manor house and gardens, with the book-filled library, and with her own comfortable room. But there were stories of a strange tenant, a woman who laughed like a maniac, and who stayed in rooms on the third floor.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book because it is entertaining and has an interesting plot. I found it somewhat cumbersome however due to the formality of the old english.
