Would you listen to Through the Lens again? Why?
I probably would listen to Through the Lens again. It was a somewhat light read. There is drama but it isn't full of heart-wrenching, soul-breaking turmoil. Yet, there is intrigue and excitement.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
I really enjoyed being in Jessa's head. She's a pretty down to earth girl with a good sense of right and wrong. She is not the typical YA chic and it was refreshing. There is a bite of angst but she does not over dramatize every little detail of her life.
On the other hand...I wish she would have had more conversation with Ethan. I didn't particularly like how the relationship between them developed. She was so meek and quiet that I didn't feel the connection until much later in the book.
What about Erin Mallon’s performance did you like?
Erin Mallon gave a good solid read. Proper inflection, enough emotion...she was never boring or droll, nor was she immature.
Any additional comments?
What I loved most about Through the Lens is the air of mystery, the thread of the unknown. Even though I pegged the situation fairly early on, I was still interested in how it would all play out.
Shannon Dermott delivered a mature YA story with a level of responsibility and respect. Giving characters with strong moral convictions and pride. She dealt with a few touchy subjects with great maturity.
