Will I read more from this Author? I don't know…
This could have been better, maybe, if I had read it…because I didn't really enjoy the narration. Usually, an audiobooks narrator brings the story to life for you, with the different accents and inflections for each characters voice within the story. This, however, was just a lady telling a story. I should mention that it was probably done this way on purpose, I believe, anyway. Because this is a story within a story. Despite that, I still felt like I wanted more from the narration.
I can see why this has a lot of 5 star ratings, totally. It will blow your mind. Tamara is one resilient girl, that ultimately, I couldn't help but like. There is a tiny splish (a smaller version of a splash) of the paranormal to this, that overall kicked it up a notch for me. I like that sort of thing in a story. But, unfortunately, it didn't kick it up enough to overcome the awkwardness of it.
⇝Sex Factor⇜ The first sex scene was really awkward. So much so, that I never got past it. Luckily, they're not overly explicit.
