Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I'm not sure. I liked the story, in the end, but the performances weren't that dynamic.It was FINE, but I think I would have enjoyed reading the book more than listening.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
The two narrators were very flat and sometimes that made it feel like the pacing of the actual book was dragging. Sloane Devin's narrator had a horrendous Southern accent for one of the characters.
Any additional comments?
First, the premise of this book is so unrealistic. These two girls who share an uncommon name decide to switch places. One goes to an elite figure skating school, the other to an advanced hockey camp. The way they pull off the various sports is kind of glossed over, probably because it is unbelievable. However, and this is a BIG however, by the end, I didn't care that this would never work. I was sucked in to the story and I just went with it. It won me over and I was charmed by the book and the two Sloanes.
That said, I still think I would have enjoyed reading it more than I enjoyed listening to it.
