Thirteen Days to Midnight- Audiobook Review

I’m sorry guys, this was supposed to automatically post last Friday, but I guess it didn’t. Tomorrow I’ll have a post up for the launch party for Jessica Therrien’s Oppression!! And then once I sort through all the info that was squeezed into my brain, I’ll have a couple posts up about the conference 🙂

This was a fun change of pace from the other books I have been listening to. It was short- only six CDs long and easy to listen to. I was drawn through the book quickly and never felt as if the pace slowed. I will admit, about halfway through, I became extremely fed up with the main character, though he had good reasons to act as he did (boy + girl = boy doing anything for girl). If I had been reading, I probably would have read only dialogue to skip through those parts, but as it was, I listened away. I especially loved this was written from a male perspective, which was done extremely well (the author is male so I suppose that’s to be expected).

Steven Boyer’s reading actually reminded me of Jesse Eisenberg, who I absolutely love. My only qualm with Boyer’s reading is that he took awkwardly long pauses between sentences, but once I got used to the pauses, they didn’t bother me. There’s a good chance I’ll search out other books he’s read.

All in all, I recommend this if you’re looking for a fun, quick ride through story-land.
