I admit it, I downloaded this audio after watching the Twilight movie. I found it to be entertaining in a way that required no effort on my part. If you want to be passively entertained and are able to overlook the feeble whining of the female lead then this is for you.
"A pleasing end"
After enjoying the other audio's in this series it was inevitable that I would download this one. I enjoy happy endings and on that level this book did not disappoint, in fact it was a little to saccharine sweet even for my taste. I would not listen to this as a stand alone book despite the excellent narration. However, for those who have read the other books do not let that put you off. If you have grown attached to the characters in the other books you will feel this is a nice place to say farewell to them.
"Lived up to expectation"
I listened to this one directly after 'New Moon'. The story flowed easily but included a fair amount of repetition to allow the book to stand alone if needed.
This book was effortless on my behalf. I was able to give it half my attention whilst doing mundane tasks and still felt engaged with the story.
The narration is very good and adds to an enjoyable story. I would happily recommend this audio to others.
"Average at best"
I wanted to like it, I tried to enjoy it, but I didn't. It had a promising plot, some clever writing and plenty of detail but somehow it failed to engage me. I listened to the audio until the end but I was unable to empathise with the characters... and I have a child with Down syndrome. On that subject the author has tried to present a positive image of disability but failed miserably and the insensitive narration only highlighted this fact. All in all the book is not something I would recommend to others. Conversely a close friend of mine has read it and loved it. She recommended it to me. Horses for courses I guess...
"FREE - The right price for this I think!"
Curiosity encouraged me to download this book. It is a genre I have never tried before but as it was free I thought 'why not?'. I have nothing to compare the book too, but as an introduction to this field I felt it to be disappointing and not something I will be in a rush to purchase.
I downloaded this short and cheap story to amuse me whilst I worked in the garden. Sadly it did not. The story which had a promising plot failed to deliver. The narration was also disappointing; it lacked in expression. This book was, in my opinion, bland and I will not be recommending it.
I enjoyed this book immensely. It was a little different to my usual choices but thoroughly engaging all the same and I found it hard to put it down... in fact I found myself looking forward to doing mundane tasks such as ironing just to give myself an excuse to continue the story! I will certainly look out for more in this genre and more by this author in future. Give it a go. You may well be surprised.
