Loved it!

This series has it all. I saw the treachery come a mile away. I was extremely sad and had tears streaming. I loved Michael Pauley. He brings it all to life.

Can love conquer cynicism?

I loved Blind Faith, the first book in this series, and so was thrilled when the next book was released on audio. I adore Michael Pauley and again felt he did a great job. He differentiates well between the two main characters and he brought out the immediacy of the terrible situation Isaac finds himself in. Michael always hits just the right note and is an incredibly reliable narrator. That might seem like a weak adverb, but in the world of audiobooks, it’s reassuring to know you’re going to get a high-quality performance every time. You get that with Michael.

The book starts about six months after Blind Faith ends. Carter and Isaac are happy in their relationship, but Carter is yearning for more. He feels like a guest when he stays at Isaac’s house, never quite like he belongs. But Isaac is stubborn. Being blind, he relies on everything being exactly where it needs to be. He also struggles and doesn’t want Carter to see. He wants Carter to see him at his best all the time while Carter just wants to be there. Isaac’s stubbornness will play a major role in this book, as it did the last one. To hope he’d changed entirely because of Carter and love was a bit much. Even if he wasn’t blind, I still believe he’d be cynical and, on occasion, downright rude.

Isaac’s cynicism isn’t apparent, though, when a new person enters his life. Joshua is working as a contractor at the school where Isaac teaches and they become fast friends. Isaac believes himself to be a good judge of character, but Carter isn’t convinced Joshua is on the up and up. This becomes an increasing source of tension between the two men. Is Carter just jealous or is there more going on? Can Isaac see what Joshua’s true intentions are, even though he’s blind?

The frightening setback for Isaac really was scary and I understood how and why it changed him. For the better in some respects but not in others. If I had undergone what he had, I’d have been altered as well. I think we all would. But he gets back up and soldiers on, although now willing to accept more help than before.

The dark moment in this book is pretty dark. Isaac’s sharp tongue goes too far and, honestly, I began to wonder why Carter put up with him. I mean love is all well and good, but cruel words do have an impact. I could only give Isaac so much understanding of his condition before it was almost too much. I wanted to shake some sense into him. I got my happy ending with a decent resolution, so that was something.

I also have to mention that in this book, as with the first book, I had a good cry. I didn’t think I would, it caught me off-guard, it didn’t detract from the book, and it kind of made sense. Still hit me hard though. But that’s life.

Like I said, Michael Pauley was superb, the book was great, and I enjoyed the entire thing. There is one more book in the series and I can’t wait.

so good!!!!

I found Through These Eyes to be even better then the first book in the series (Blind Faith). The author digs even deeper into Isaac and Carter’s relationship. This audio book is more angsty than the first one. There were times when I really wanted to smack Isaac in the head. He is a jerk throughout the story but at the end of the book he ends up baring his soul to Carter which I found to be such a beautiful moment. This audio book made me feel all kinds of emotions from laughter to anger and even some tears but the real theme through this whole book is hope. Hope is a very powerful thing and both our characters have it in spades!! I cannot recommend this series enough!!!!
I love Michael Pauley and his narration was a good as always!!

as good as the ebook

The story is always full stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. Michael Pauley is one of the 8 narrators (so far), I can listen without break and have no problems to follow. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B
