Good job, for the most part

Any additional comments?

I loved reading the physical copy of the book, so I was curious to hear the audio book. The only reason I gave four stars for the performance was that the valley girl accent got too much sometimes. I mean, I know that Cathy is supposed to be cynical, but seriously. The valley girl voice got tiring.

Any additional comments?

First off, I rarely write reviews.. I was at my local library in the used book section when I can across book 2 and 3 in the Cathy series for 1$ each. Previously I heard about this series from a book review on YouTube. At first I thought this was going to be a series way to young for me ( I'm over 30). However I quickly got into the story and was itching to find out more. I found myself very caught up in the story and all the developments . I felt like a fly on the wall following Cathy on her adventures.. I have read some reviews for this book and have to disagree that this was crappy book with a horrible predictable story line. I'm sure I'm not the only reader out there who purposely tries not to analyze the crap out of a book I'm reading. Reading for me is an escape. I've always had the ability to read and visually put myself there and in the situations. .. I think this is definitely worth reading or listening to the audiobook.
