I’ve heard so many good things about Mary Roach’s books, but this just didn’t hold my interest. I didn’t get very far before abandoning it. The worst thing about this was that the narrator put on a really bad Indian accent at one point and I found it rather offensive, frankly. I had the audiobook checked out from my library, so at least I didn’t purchase this one.
The final book in the Crossfire series. I couldn’t even finish it. This one was long overdue and so overhyped. I remember being sucked in to the first book in the series and really enjoying it, but with each subsequent book, my enjoyment has diminished. I feel like Gideon and Eva didn’t show much character growth. They fight, they have sex and make up, they fight some more…blah. I looked up spoilers about how the series ends and I’m so glad I didn’t bother finishing. There was some random WTFery thrown in at the end. Additionally, I had the audio version and didn’t like the narrators. The female narrator had a habit of trying to make her voice sound really, really deep whenever Gideon was speaking and it was comical to me.
It pains me to admit that I didn’t finish this! I love Anne Calhoun so, so much, but I could not get into this story. The characters have a serious case of insta-lust, which I normally don’t mind at all, but it seemed especially unbelievable for some reason. I tried to forge on since it’s a novella, but I gave up. I have the follow-up book on my Kindle, so hopefully that one will be more engaging.
