Listening to this book made me want to just read it on my own. Not that the story line wasn’t bad or intriguing, it was more so the narrator. She is a British actress, from what I read, who doesn’t do the greatest American accent. No fault to her, a lot of Brits can’t mimic our accent. Heck! I don’t do the greatest British accent.
Other than the narrator not being my favorite, I rather enjoyed listening to this book. The characters were still great and intriguing. The plot was even better than the first book. In fact, I found it more interesting because there was so much drama and upset. It was great!
The only difference I found between me reading the first book on my own and listening to this second book is the fact that I actually interacted more. I tend to talk out loud quite a bit when I watch a TV show or movie. I was doing the exact same thing while listening to this book. I found myself yelling at characters and agreeing with characters. It was just a lot of fun.
All of what I said above, I think, comes down to the writer. Zoe Sugg is a fantastic and captivating writer. She engages her audience and you can tell she puts a lot of heart and soul into her writing. She pulls a lot from her own world, which I think is mainly the places she loves, and puts it into the story. I like that because it makes it more personal and personable. You really get a picture what it’s like to experience these characters’ worlds.
If you’re a fan of YA or a fan of Zoe’s, like myself, I would definitely recommend picking this book up. I really enjoyed it.
