Would you consider the audio edition of Grimspace to be better than the print version?

No, the voice would make a great Ramona. She tries her best with emotions but she sounds like children or tween books would better suit her voice.


How could the performance have been better?

Different narrator.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Her voice is too grating and distracts from the story. I love the entire series and have all the books. But I get a migraine from trying to listen to the disparate voice. She doesn't sound tough, much less old enough to match Jax. Wish I listened to a sample before I bought the audio version.


Any additional comments?

Very disappointing because I really looked forward to the audio series.

lazy writing, not great casting

Perhaps this would have been better in paper. I've listened to about an hour and a half of this, and I won't go further. The main character is supposed to be in her 30s, but the narrator sounds like a petulant 13 year old who can't say anything without a sarcastic slant. The male characters all sound female, and what I think are supposed to be British accents are terrible.
As for the story: the heroine's personality and behavior are inconsistent, but oddly certain thoughts are just repetitive. There is lack of creativity, and the characteristics of the future are forced and trite as are the relationships. It's as if the author couldn't let the world just be discovered. It's thrown out of the bag, uninspired, boring, and lazy.
