Rather long and tedious

Felt like this went on for ever. I found the narrator's style too slow and deliberate. Perhaps this is why the characters never came to life for me and I didn't care what happened to them.

Good story

A good story but the writing's not fantastic, far too much he said, she said. A more extensive vocabulary is needed.

I found the logial, workaholic, trust nothing and no one Emma somewhat unbelievable but it was good to watch her get her relationships with her family and with Alice back on track and the romance was sweet enough.

The story was very much spoiled by the expressionless, robotic narration. There were times when I wondered if I were listening to a text to speech computer rendition.

An enjoyable story as ever but found the narration very bland. I missed Jeeves' European accent.

I'd rather listen to someone reading the book

I feel you lose so much in an adaptation, if I hadn't bought this as part of a two for one deal, I'd have returned it pretty early on.

Enjoyed this as much as Agent of Change. looking forward to the next book.

Didn't think much of the narrator's female voices.

Very enjoyable

Plenty of action, full of intrigue and a little slow building romance, what more could you ask for?

As a non American I found it a little weird that Zoe was pronounced Zoh instead of Zoey and Darien pronounced Derien but I learned to ignore it:)
