First off, I actually enjoyed this book. The author sucked me in with the interactions between Coral and her new found friends on the island. The characters were all easily identifiable and "real". There was a good camaraderie between the four shipwrecked men that isn't always easy to pull off.
My only issue was with the performance. The narrator's voice had a very innocent quality to it, which suited Coral fine, but not the male characters. Not a deal breaker, but I wasn't sure if this was supposed to be a young adult book, romance or whatever (well, until it came to the actual explicit scene, which was told from Coral's point of view, and wasn't crude at all).
Overall, a very quick listen -- even at 6 hours. At the end, I was almost disappointed we didn't find out what happened to Gio, but I supposed SOMETHING needs to be left for the next book.
A good job and I recommend it to anyone who likes a good fantasy.
I really liked The Mermaid’s Escape. It was different from other Mermaid books I’ve read. The characters were very likable. Each one brought something different to the story. I enjoyed learning about their pasts and what brought them all together. At first it took me a little while to get into the narration but once I got into it the story grabbed ahold of me and I couldn’t wait to finish. I felt narrator did a good job with making the voices distinguishable. I look forward to finding out what happens in the next book.
It took a little while to get into but I ended up liking this book. I found the narration a bit flat and before the dialogue got going l didn't really warm to the characters. By the end though I was really rooting for things to work out for the gang.
I'll read or listen to the second in the series to see what happens next.
