hope this was an introduction or something

first let me start by saying I was given this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review, that said I'm free to review it as I like look up the book Rouge if you doubt that the book was awful and my review reflected my thoughts. now the book does have some great emotional moment's with a few funny in-between and definitely the writer knows psychology, the characters are interesting and I can see where this could be a good book. but I'm lost on the point. however maybe I need to look at the series and see if that given any more information. if I can understand the world this book is written in it would probably be good. but as a stand alone book it was just alright and a decent way to kill a few hours.

Creative and interesting

The Darkrock is one of the most creative books I have listened to in a long time. This fast paced book is well written and very descriptive. The narrator Wayne Keller III did an amazing job bringing the story to life. The characters are quirky, and most of the time typical teenagers. I highly recommend this book. I received this audio book at my request and I am voluntarily leaving my honest review of my own volition.

disappointing

I have to say I was disappointed in this book. The first 6 parts of it were fine; the story is of six teenagers basically coming to realize something about themselves. They are all given a strange letter that they would get their hearts desire if they go out into the woods and touched the Dark Rock. All 6 gather, each one touches the rock and wander off into the woods.

What disappointed me was the last part of the book, the denouement. Having listened to three other of Wisteria P. Jones books I knew of the supernatural/paranormal/otherworldly twist. But I felt that this was a cop-out; as if the author didn't know how to logically explain what was going on. I was okay with the Wizard of Oz crystal ball type of observation of the teenagers, but the whole last part of the book was just confusing and didn't really give us a conclusion, like her other books. I would have preferred the teenagers met up with their overseer and spoke of the changes they were planning on making to their lives, or what they learned, but there was no real closure of the book.

I'm not sure if I liked the narrator or not. He definitely fit the tone of the book - a young narrator who sounded like a teenager himself, and he did try to individualize the characters - some voices worked better than others. Of course, the difficulty with narrators is that you seldom actually know if you are hearing their natural voice or if they are in the character of the book from start to finish. (For example, an American speaking with an English accent throughout a body of work, or vice versa. Just think of Spike from Buffy!)

OOO This was good!

Really enjoyed this book, loved the different angles it portrayed. Never listened to a book like that before. Nice plot addition at the end, I do hope there is another book to this, if so will be listening. I will be adding this author to my must be listened to list. Love it when i find a book like this one.
Recommend a good listen to this.
