3.5 stars (based on my understanding of the story)
This is not a negative review, even though it may seem like it, it is more about me and my understanding of this book than a reflection on the author, writing style or the story.
I guess maybe I was expecting something a little different. I enjoyed the story but I think maybe I'm just too "beige" sometimes for Tarryn's writing style. I think maybe I see things in black and white and that makes it hard for me to understand the artsy writing style that leaves a story completely up for interpretation. I never seem to get the story the way others do. I liked the characters but I really couldn't connect with them but I think that is just because they were eclectic and I am not, if that makes sense. I did enjoy the story for the most part but I just don't think I "get" her stories as much as I wish I did. I can see how someone who is a little dark and a little bit of a nonconformist would love this story. I however just don't have the mind set to get more from a story than the actual words say. Yes I know, I'm boring.
Anyways, If you like dark and twisty and you like a book that will make you think the entire time you will love this book!
The narration was different for sure. At first I wasn't a fan but as I got to know the main character more I realized the narrator was perfect for her voice!

Not sure what who I was rooting for in that book. In the end, I am content with the outcome, but I was really confused what I wanted for Helena mid-book. Lots of twists and turns and some intriguing characters that give you a lot to ponder.
First time listen for Marisa Vitali and I liked her. She did a great job with all the characters. I didn't like when she said "Helena", but I'm not sure if it's because I hated the name for the character or the way she said it, but other than that- all was good.
I would recommend for a listen.
