Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Jessica Brody knows how to gently pull a reader into the lives of other people. I read books like this precisely because I want to share in the experience of other people. Although I am beginning to sound like a broken record, Julia Whelan is magnificent. I actually found this book by looking for works narrated by her. With Whelan behind the microphone this story comes to life flowing along with just the right amount of suspense and action. This is NOT a typical 'girl loses memory' tale at all. The twists and turns are deliciously sweet and kept me guessing all along. An author who builds lives, builds feeling and emotion, and who evokes empathy in readers automatically moves to the top of my list of authors to search for again next time I am looking for a new series.
What did you like best about this story?
The narration, as I said before, is the best. Whelan is fabulous with her timing, tone, inflection, and emotion. I loved that this tale is written from the first person point of view, from Seraphina's perspective. Without giving away too much, I can say that Seraphina's way of thinking and describing the world is completely unique in this story. Imagine that you appeared in a world in which you had lost your memories, did not understand the customs, the social mores, or even what most objects are used for. Now, imagine ways in which this could possibly happen. Brody's dishes out just the right amount of detail at just the right times to keep readers invested and guessing.
