Audiobook Reviews (10)

Insurgent by Veronica Roth (Narrated by Emma Galvin)

I don't think there's a more fitting voice for Tris than Emma Galvin's. She also narrated bad-ass Isabel on the Wolves of Mercy Falls series, and she has that perfect bad-ass voice for strong and awesome female characters. I've loved everything Emma Galvin has narrated, so this was no exception. Packed with action and full of twists, I loved the story and how the characters developed and how Tris grew, and fucked up over and over again, and then grew some more. One hell of a listen!

Book:  ★★
Narrator:  ★★★★
Recommended audio? Definitely.

Beneath a Meth Moon by Jacqueline Woodson (Narrated by Cassandra Campbell)

A quick straight-forward listen for contemporary lovers who can take darkness and learn from it. The reader did a very good job with accents, and portraying the despair and hopelessness that the character felt. The different voices the narrator did were very distinguishable and she made the story lighter by reading it. I think I enjoyed it more as a listen because it's a very sad story.
Book:  ★★★
Narrator:  ★★
Recommended audio? Yes

Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris (Narrated by Katie Schorr) 

Meh, I was honestly enjoying it until the plot "unraveled" of sorts. I dont want to give anything away but lets just say some kinds of paranormal/scifi I just can't swallow. It was strongly laid out and written but poorly imagined. Too cartoonish for my taste, and then it just ended up cheesy. The reader was good and I can see a lot of people enjoying this (I was quite glued for the first half) but I just expected a bit more from it.
Narrator:  ★★★★
Recommended audio? Not really.

  1. I've got Unraveled. I haven't gotten around to listening to it yet though... And now I'm hesitant.
