The book was translated to Valenda in my language. Valenda is where the story takes place. There wasn't anything about the Fates in the previous book and suddenly they are trapped inside some cards for centuries and can change the world forever? The love interests of the sisters weren't that interesting in this book, either. The magic and atmosphere and symbols like roses were most interesting to me and how those were included in the books.

It took me a year to finish this. I was just watching a youtube channel where people talk about young adult books and they seemed to want a strong femail protagonist in an epic fantasy setting. I read somewhere this was categorized as epic fantasy and the main character is indeed beautiful, deadly and also likes books and sweets even though she might not be scattering glitter everywhere she goes, she is a female assassin. The guys who are into her seem somewhat relatable too but I wouldn't call Calaena a very memorable as a character, I'm on the second book and can hardly remember the name.

It took me months to finish listening to it but the time I finished it there was a movie already going on in the cinemas.
I would love to have an ability like the main characters, to make someone forget their every memory of me, so it was also sad - sad in a good way.
I went to see the film with a friend whose liked genre totally isn't young adult, so I couldn't tear down like a waterfall while sitting there.
Currently trying to listen to the sequel book.

If you could sum up The Intimate Adventures of a London Call Girl in three words, what would they be?

most ancient profession

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

It wasn't a story, she kept a diary. That changes the way you listen.

What does Anonymous bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

French days of the week were nicely pronounced.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The clients who she always says were nice, that actually weren't all so nice, was kind of a white lie but she just did her job and her attitude of just benefiting from everything.

Would you listen to Divergent again? Why?

I think I caught enough detail in one listen

What did you like best about this story?

Trish's fear of intimacy was funny

Have you listened to any of Emma Galvin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I don't think I have

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It's a young people's book. There is a movie coming out too... It's sort of funny but so much violence I don't know...

Would you listen to Mockingjay again? Why?

Maybe if I would forget the story but I would listen to the author's note again to understand again why she wrote the book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Mockingjay?

The death of a couple of the leaders... of which Katniss kills the other one, and people say she lost her mind, but I think it just showed her true fire...

Which character – as performed by Carolyn McCormick – was your favorite?

KATNISS

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes it was.. I had started reading the book but this was better. I was out downtown and shopping but looked concentrated on listening to this

Would you try another book from Innovative Language Learning and/or Victor Ning and Amber Scorah ?

I might pay if they taught me stuff

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

At the end you really have this learning bit and the story of is nice and true in a modern way

Which scene was your favorite?

Scene? It just tells more about ways to study language

Could you see Learn English with Innovative Language's Proven Language System - Level 5: Advanced English being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Some English teacher would make the audience repeat words and that is it

Any additional comments?

Hey nice free English learning book. I doubt you need it if you are a native speaker already

Would you consider the audio edition of Doctor Sleep to be better than the print version?

Not really. I had lots of headache during listening to this or maybe due to the book? I was listening to it before bedtime and sometimes right after waking up. I wouldn't recommend trying to listen to this book within a few days.

What other book might you compare Doctor Sleep to and why?

It is a sequel to The Shining kind of... but that book was epic. This just tells what happened to the characters with a twist of nonhuman creatures.

What about Will Patton’s performance did you like?

His voice was a bit heavy on my ears.

Who was the most memorable character of Doctor Sleep and why?

Dan and Abra and the ghosts and nonhumans were quite memorable. And if you count Overlook Hotel as a character with all it's bad mojo... I was always happy to listen to bits about that

Any additional comments?

Yes, it was a scary at first but I tried getting used to all the paranormal and afterlife stuff... I guess you never get used to things like shining. It is a bit frightening especially if you have some bad tempered people yielding that kind of power

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Perhaps I wouldn't like my friends to know I read erotic novels and it wasn't something that might benefit their language learning as much as some other book.

If you’ve listened to books by Sylvia Day before, how does this one compare?

I have only read the first book almost to the finish and starting the second one didn't spoil me anything from the end of the first book.

What about Jill Redfield’s performance did you like?

They should have got a mail voice to do Gideon Cross maybe but at least she didn't groan and moan in the sex scenes. I guess she had the right kind of performance in those situations of the book.

Was Reflected in You worth the listening time?

It wasn't too long. Might not read it again the last thing and first thing in the morning because I had some powerful sexual dreams

Any additional comments?

I need to find something else to listen to. This was just something I haven't really read before so it might keep my interest up
