What was one of the most memorable moments of Moonrise?
Story-wise, it wasn't necessarily the most original thing I've ever come across but it was quite enjoyable nonetheless and the mystery was excellently plotted. Also, despite what some of the other reviewers have said, the accents are very authentic, and this is coming from someone with family in the Carolinas. The accent isn't exactly the most pleasant I've ever come across but, truth be told, it is very accurately portrayed here, to the readers' credits.
What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Again, as said above, I'm not sure what the complaints over these narrators are about. I have listened to several books by Jennifer Bradshaw and she is AMAZING. I have not listened to Willow Hale or Elle Newlands previously but I thought they both performed admirably and I would happily listen to them again.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I listen to my audiobooks in my car on my commute to work. That being said, my commute is quite long (I travel from the city to an off-site base out in the middle of nowhere) and I happily finished this book in about half a work-week.
Any additional comments?
Where's the movie?!?

I decided to get this because it was 1 of the 3 in the banner on the homepage of Audible. It seemed like it would be a suspenseful story with good characters. The plot was weak and it just never picked up. The main character is gullible beyond belief and with the exception of Lync and Willa, the characters are not anyone I would ever want to be around, much less socialize with. They are all shallow and the 2 women (Tanzy & Kit) were just plain mean. From their interactions, it seemed impossible to believe that they'd remained friends for so long. The narrator that did the voice for Tanzy was SO ANNOYING. She talked entirely too slow, putting odd emphasis on certain words, where no emphasis was necessary. Sentences that weren't questions ended as though they were. I suffered through the chapters she read. The other 2 narrators were good, but, again, the plot was just weak. The ending left me feeling a bit cheated. There were many loose ends, not enough to warrant a sequel, but enough to make me feel that the book ended entirely too abruptly. It was also a very anti-climactic ending. There was so much build up and then it just fell flat. I would not recommend this book.
