I recently decided I should try audio books. Now, normally I HATE listening to people read and can't focus, but I have an hour commute. Now, that is not a round trip commute, it is one way. I drive an hour one way to school and an hour to get back home. Then when I work or do my internship, I drive another hour one way and then add another hour coming back home. That is a lot of wasted reading time!
Playing Fate, was my first real audio book I have ever listened to front to back. I won't lie I have been mulling for a couple of days about my review and with all honesty I give it a 3.5 leaning more to a 4.
The story: This story really pulled me in. I loved the secrets involved and how you kept discovering more and more people have more secrets and you want to keep reading and reading. I loved the dynamics between the characters and their relationship. Nothing makes me love a story more than the love you feel between all of the characters. That was my favorite part of this story as well. I also loved the way the characters were real. It wasn't always rainbows and butterflies. That is real life.
The only part of this book that was hard for me was that I felt lost more than once. I hit the back button a couple of times to make sure I didn't miss something. The story seemed to be in one place and then jumped to another without any indication. Although annoying, it did not stop me from wanting to continue the story.
Oh yeah, it was also super hot! ;)
Audio: Now, I wasn't sure what to expect on this side of the story, but was pleasantly surprised. I was entertained and could easily pay attention. Logan McAllister did a very good job, but I believe a female partner would've made it so much more enthralling. Can't blame Mr. McAllister for not being able to drop his voice down super womanly so much. ;)
All in all I was pleasantly surprised by this audio book and glad that I am diving into the audio world!
