the writing is decent at some parts, repetitive and terrible at others. the repetitive use of certain words or descriptions is irksome at best as well as the predictability. not very imaginative
I really enjoyed the book, and overall the audiobook too. The story was really good, and quite emotional in places. And I really liked the characters. The end of the book seemed a little rushed, given how detailed the rest of it was. But I understand deadlines.
Unfortunately I just couldn't believe the narrators, either one of them. Carrie just made Olivia seem way too perky and happy go lucky for a person who was supposed to be driven and serious and who was so focused on her career that she completely put her lovelier on the back burner. I mean she did a good job getting the ideas and emotions across (thanks to the writing), but it just wasn't that believable.
But Carrie was better than David. He did the whole book in this kinda weird breathy voice. It was like he was trying too hard the whole time. Maybe trying to come across as sexy, but it was just too over the top. The only character that maybe sounded remotely like he was written...probably because he didn't say much or ever chuckle, was Kane. I mean really, what the hell was that "Heh, heh, heh" thing he was doing?!?! And for a "bada$$" millionaire grump, he made Cash sound really whiny and needy when he talked to Olivia. Just sooo not in Cassian March's character!
I think it could have been wonderful with different narrators...probably better than the written book. The narrators did a good job of not letting their first words get cut off. That happens way too often in audiobooks, but only a couple times throughout this whole book.
