I rarely write these reviews, however I felt the need to do so because of the appalling narrating. Any half decent narrator will do a few voices. the bad ones just recycle 3 or 4. This woman used the same monotone voice for the entire book. one of the characters has an Irish accent. The main character exclaims about it. We as the listeners will never here that due to the narrator never bothering to try. And if I have to hear her mispronounce another simple word, I may throw my phone. It feels like she was being blackmailed to read this book.
The book itself has a few major things that kept taking me out of the story. I constantly questioned the motivations of the main character. she seemed to be a little too well adjusted to heavily traumatic events. The author repeatedly glosses over chances to describe events in detail. I read great descriptions of the clothes and stores but not a lot about how they got there.
With that said, I enjoyed the take on vampires. by the end I was Interested in finding out how and why she has her powers and if her "relationship" will ever pan out. If this book is on sale for around $4 then I can say it is an ok filler between good books. But don't pay anything close to full price.
side note: if you were to add up the number of times someone cries Instead of describing their emotions, you would have enough to tears to fill the Pacific Ocean. Three times.
I'm only a few chapters in. I'm enjoying it so far, but only because the narrator's pace, tone and inflection has made the overly detailed descriptions of coeds constantly changing clothes less tedious. I'm looking forward to hearing the story fully develop and hope to find more content with Jacqlyn Titus as the narrator...
