This book ends up being okay, but the character and story-line development takes a good half of the book, leaving only the last third of the book to actually be good. The book takes place in only a couple of weeks, but a lot and yet very little occur in that time frame. The main female character is not a strong character, and it takes very little to get her attention. You end up understanding that her strong attraction to the male character is something entirely different than you initially think, but it doesn't improve her weakness. The narrator is pretty horrible, very choppy and slow, but oddly enough she has a rhythm that you can eventually get in with and not annoy so much. And thankfully, my MP3 player has a fast playback feature for audiobooks. So overall, this is an okay listen, just okay enough that I will give the second book a try.

I JUST FINISHED THE AVAILIBLE BOOKS IN THS SERIES AND I HAVE TO SAY I WAS A BIT ANNOYED WITH I STARTED LISTENING TO THIS BOOK. I NEVER REALLY EXPECT THE FIRST BOOK IN A SERIES TO BE THE BEST BUT I WAS ALMOST REALLY DISAPOINTED BECAUSE I JUST REMINDED ME OF THE TWILIGHT BOOK. IT WAS PROBABLY THE AUTHORS BIGGEST INFLUENCE AND IT REALLY SHOWS. BUT... THE STORY IS REALLY GOOD AND THE AUTHORS DID DO A GREAT JOB ON THE SERIES SO IT IS WORTH LISTENING TO AND GETTING T NEXT BOOK.

I great book to listen to: I actually had to run my ipod OFF so i could sleep instead of keeping myself awake just to hear the next part. however, if you're looking for something unique, this isn't it. Its so reminiscent of Twilight that i can't believe its not copyright infringement and if i heard the word "complicated" one more time i was going to shred my earphones. BUT it's fun to listen to and slightly more satisfying because its set for a older audience (albeit only by a smidgen). I'd have given it a 5 if it hadn't already all been said and done.
