Disappointed

So let me start by saying this is not typically what I read, so maybe the fact that I didn't care much for it just comes down to personal taste.

IMO, thin plot, two dimensional characters, and narration that honestly reminded me of those Barbie PC games I used to play when I was a kid in the 90s. I dont know, the voice is weirdly girly and upbeat, and didn't hold a lot of emotion beyond squealing girly delight and depressed, angsty sobs.

I definitely think I just don't fit the target audience for this book - too young for me, and I'm only 22.

Forbidden Love + Family Ties + Lovely Narration

I really loved this story. It reminded me a lot of The Little Mermaid, my favorite Disney princess. To this day, I am still obsessed with that story as I find it endearing that the ordinary is so coveted. I also find that overall, that story is just magical. That is how I feel about this story. I love the role the ocean plays, and the sisterly bond of the sirens, and most of all, I love the love story. It was sweet and imperfectly perfect.

Arielle DeLisle did a fantastic job at carrying the story. So gifted! I will definitely seek out more stories narrated by her.

Awesome work!

It was a great story and a view into an interesting mythical world, my only complaint is that I wanted more - I think the ending was too abrupt but it was awesome!

Wonderful narrator

I loved Kiera Cass' other books and narrators; but this narrator has a beautiful voice. Just as I would imagine the Sirens in the book.

Pleasantly surprised

I've read other books by this author no loved them. I wasn't sure though how I would like this plot and surprisingly I loved it. I think it was really good and I'm wondering if this will be a stand alone book or a start of a series? I'd read the others stories if she choose to write them.

I've listened twice already!

I love the history that the author slips in throughout the story to help develop the character's back story. I want more of this story line. Be prepared to be sucked in. The only disappointment is when it ends & you will be stuck wanting more.
