    Story
    "Not in love with the narration "

    Whilst I adore this story and its premise the narration often makes me cringe. The heroine sounds like a Disney Princess and Ky and Cassia's father sound monotone in moments that should contain emotion. I suppose this is to create greater variety in the voices but it doesn't work. Also they added music in some emotional parts that just made it so cheesy removing the sincerity present in the book. Overall i think this is better to read than to listen to. If you do choose to listen to it though, try to listen past the narration to the sentiment of the book.

    Story
    "Sweet but dull"

    It is romantic and at times thought provoking. Easy listening.

    The narrator has a sweet yet monotone voice which didn't help warm me to the very basic lead character. Male voices performed in the story are quite cringe and took me out of it.

    Not much happens in the story and unfortunately I am not compelled to read the next books.

    I would recommend this to young readers. Perhaps 8-11 years old.

    I loved this book. I look forward to book two. No red tablets for me. Go write.
    Thank you Ally.
