Summary

From New York Times best-selling author of The Lunar Chronicles, Marissa Meyer, comes Heartless, a vision of Wonderland like none you've seen before, telling the untold story of the girl who would the notorious Queen of Hearts. 

Long before she was the Queen of Hearts, Catherine Pinkerton was just a girl who wanted to fall in love.

Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland and a favourite of the unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her best friend. But according to her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for the young woman who could be the next queen. 

Then Cath meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the king and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into an intense, secret courtship. Cath is determined to define her own destiny and fall in love on her terms. But in a land thriving with magic, madness and monsters, fate has other plans.

Irritating Heroine

I’ve enjoyed the other stories in the series, but I found the heroine in this tale incredibly irritating. I think the author was going for high born daughter who just wants a humble life as a baker but instead she just came off as selfish, spoiled, prideful and determined to get her own way regardless of its impact on others. I found her so disagreeable it ruined any chance of my enjoying the tale.

A bit disappointed

Based on her previous book, that I really enjoyed, this one was a bit disappointing and not what I have expected. Narration is good.

Marvellous

I loved the narration, Rebbeca Soler is extremly talentes, she managed to voice each character in a way I didn't believe it was the same person talking, she really makes the audio book a whole experience.
