I did not finish this book. I listened to it for a couple of hours and was practically bored to tears. The narrator's delivery was rather flat and she kept say "vagley" instead of vaguely, it drove me nuts. Then it got to the point where something was stated that completely contradicted something stated earlier and I was done.

What did you love best about Crossroads?
I switched to the Kindle version. I like the story. It is worth reading. The narrator was VERY hard to listen to and I did not enjoy her reading at all. She read too fast and her voice was irritating. I don't like leaving bad reviews, but I had to stop listening to this audible version based on her reading.
Would you be willing to try another one of Amanda Friday’s performances?
NO - I will never listen to Amanda Friday again. The narrator was VERY hard to listen to and enjoy. She read too fast and her voice was SO irritating. There was no change in voices with the characters and it was hard to tell who was speaking (Man or woman - angel etc.....).
I don't like leaving bad reviews, but I had to stop listening to this audible version based on her reading. I finished reading this in the kindle version and enjoyed the book.
Before I made this purchase, I read that the narrator was bad. I usually don't let that stop me. I should have just purchased the kindle version only.
Don't judge Mary Ting based on this narrator. Her books are very good.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No - I could not listen past the 4th chapter. I really....really tried to listen. I noticed that Mary Ting is now using Emma Lysy as a narrator. Emma is getting good reviews. I am not going to give up on Mary Ting's books. I plan on listening to Emma read as soon as I finish the kindle verson of Between.

What disappointed you about Crossroads?
Not my style of book. If you are a 15 year old Christian female looking for some light fantasy romance, then this might be your thing. I didn't enjoy it because the characters lacked depth and the plot was very simple. The main reason I listened to the end is because I waited too long to try this book, so was past the date when I could return it.
Has Crossroads put you off other books in this genre?
I won't be purchasing any more Mary Ting books.
What didn’t you like about Amanda Friday’s performance?
Amanda's performance wasn't bad, but there was a slightly drawn out inflection in her reading every now and again that annoyed me.
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
I managed to get to the end of the book - mainly because listening to it I could occasionally zone out and not feel like I missed anything important. If I'd been reading this I would never have progressed past the first chapter.
