Would you listen to Very Twisted Things again? Why?
Yes, I would like to someday re-listen to the entire series in order without the gaps. Each novel has been fascinating and this 3rd one lived up to my expectations.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Very Twisted Things?
‘Nothing mattered but V.
Not money or power.
Not being the star of the next blockbuster or recording a number one song.
Not even world peace.
Because the only thing that makes a difference in our lives is love. My parents had it. Leo had it. Violet. Love. Us.'
What about CJ Bloom and Roger Wayne ’s performance did you like?
I’d never heard either narrate anything prior to this novel. Overall, I liked most of CJ's acting choices, although I wasn’t super crazy about her voice acting for Sebastian. Roger was a new-to-me-narrator as well, and I especially liked that he made bold choices for different character voices.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I wanted to hug V when she reflected back on the sacrifice her father made so that she could survive the plane crash and how fully living again would honor him. It had taken her a long time to even remember how she survived, so I felt happy for her to finally have that knowledge back. Only then was V ready to really risk her heart 100% with Leo who'd also lost his parents in a tragic way but had coped with his loss much differently than she had.
Any additional comments?
In no particular order, there were a lot of random things I liked:
The opening! It was hard to hear about Violet and her parents’ fateful plane crash, but her tragic backstory sucked me in immediately.
The pre-chapter quotes for Violet and Sebastian! I think even Spike got one, ha!
Their mutual spying on each other! I couldn’t believe V’s bold almost full striptease after she finished her violin performance for her then unknown spying neighbor.
Swing sex! Who wouldn’t want to try this under the stars at least once in their youth?
V’s and Sebastian’s mutual need to help the young kids at Lyons Place. I loved that they eventually raised enough funds to run the charity organization for years to come as well as open an additional charity center.
The epilogue's where they are now kind of feel!
I made it through to the third chapter but couldn't force myself to continue. female narrator was horrible. sad because I liked the author in the dirty English series.
