I was dissapointed by this last instalment. Lauren Kate didn't use all her threads to spin a satisfying end. The reader is left to wonder why Cam was so important in the instalments before? And the new twist that should explain the curse was not fully plausible to me.
The whole storey seems quickly patched together rather then a carefully woven ...
On top of that the voice of the narrator really annoyed me. She has this "suffering" tone, it put me off the storey so much that I thought about stopping to listen and buy the book!
As much as certain narrators add to a storey others can spoil it.
Would you listen to Rapture again? Why?
Everybody loves a good love story and to think that a boy gone bad was because his love was not returned. Listen and you will know what I am talking about.
What could Lauren Kate have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
I would not change anything. I would liked to have stayed for their wedding and a little look in the future.
What does Justine Eyre bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
She is a very good reader I love listening that way I cannot cheat and skip a couple of pages to get to the good parts. Now I can listen to them over again.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
O yes. Me and my iPod spend lost of nights while my husband was sleeping listening in the dark kitchen because I cannot wait to hear what happens next.
Any additional comments?
I can really recomend this series such a feel good love story.
The story is great, however the narrators' shakey and monotone voice is very hard to lisen to...

What made the experience of listening to Rapture the most enjoyable?
The entire experience is wonderful. The story rockets along, while answering a lot of questions. The danger is heightened, the plot twists and turns, and the characters are so well written I feel like I know them all.
What other book might you compare Rapture to, and why?
With every book in this series I have thought ok, now this one is my favourite! This compares extremely well with previous entries in the series. The obvious comparison would be Twilight, as it is also a paranormal romance. However the Fallen series is superior. The quality of writing is higher, the characters more vivid and the central love story more convincing.
What about Justine Eyre’s performance did you like?
Her excellent narration once again. She has just the right tone, and her pacing and delivery is wonderful. She really brings the story alive for me.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
True love - stronger than anything else the world can throw at you!
Any additional comments?
Wonderful to have a series of novels that treats its audience with intelligence and its subject matter with respect. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole series.
