YA Sci Fi with too many 'hot guys' :eyeroll
I would almost say it was a mindless listen while I helped prepare for a family & friends reunion. Except I kept rewinding because of the inconsistencies. Like how when she was at her surprise party (oh, she bailed on her 'bff' but failed to call and cancel. Like wtf?) and indicated her new job at KC was an hour away, yet the narrative on the day of the move complained about the long ride and she took a nap during the car ride and they stopped to eat on the way.
I spent too much time on this book.
A qualified editor and copy editor could add several layers of depth and charisma.
I liked Katherine as a narrator for this author. I prefer her to the narrator of the other book I listened to for this author in the Quantum series.
Even though a screen play drastically changes most books, no. There is way too much humdrum 'I wanna bed him' thoughts. It felt too juvenile for the age range of the characters. Every touching moment involved someone getting misty eyed. Worse than a chic flic.
Premise was curious. Characters weren't deep. Plot was interesting. It was too fast paced but without suspense or friction.
The loose ends were like a three year old learning to tie their shoelaces. It wasn't tight enough and had too many loops.
I enjoy the book summaries by this author, but feel slighted by the lack of world building and flow. I still intend to pick up another book from her because I think she is growing into her own and I do enjoy the quantum theories she plays with in her literary works. V
