2.5STARS - GRADE=D+



๏ ๏ ๏  My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏ 


I really need to quit listening to books narrated by Justine Eyre because I really do not like her voice inflections/tonality or whatever you want to call it.  I thought I could get past it, but I can't.  If I finish this series, I need to wait about a year to do it, maybe then I can listen to her narration without cringing.

Overall, it's difficult for me to say how I feel about this second book, I was hoping the story would wow me enough and make the lack of good narrator unnecessary, unfortunately, it didn't do that.  I didn't really find the content exciting until the last half hour of the book.  Otherwise, I just found it boring.  This series is well-loved by many, so my experience shouldn't influence you too much, other than to the skip the Audio, maybe.  This is one that should be read.
