What did you like best about this story?
I enjoyed the book but was so disappointed that Rachel has been reduced to a gawking twit - standing around and saying "wowie" to whatever spectacle is in front of her. She was such a well developed character in the first book that this is a real shame. The author uses her almost entirely as a device to represent the reader's awe in the face material excess. I think the narrator exacerbates this in her interpretation of Rachel. She reads her like a teenage voice rather than an adult woman. Lydia Look does an amazing job with all of the other characters so this is just a bad choice because otherwise she is a phenomenal narrator. All that being said I would read through whatever it takes to get to Astrid - what a great character. Looking forward to the next installation!

I enjoyed the book. Not as fun as the first book. I was disappointed that a new narrator was used. She did a great job, but hearing the characters voices with different accents and intonations than I became familiar with during the first book made it hard for me to become engaged with the audiobook for the first half.
