Audiobook Review: One by Leigh Ann Kopans
After already reading and loving One, it was an easy 'yes' when I got the chance to review the audiobook for One. After some technical difficulties getting the audiobook onto my iPod, I jumped straight into listening as soon as I could, and I was not left disappointed. Getting the chance to listen to this book was just as good as reading it, and even though I already knew the outcome of this book it was like 'reading' it for the first time, I found myself laughing, crying, and completely shocked all over again.
One is based in Nebraska and I really wish I could remember what a Nebraskan accent sounds like. The narrator of One has an accent that just draws you in but also keeps you wanting to listen. It fitted perfectly with the book and was distinct from other books I've listened to.
I didn't think I would enjoy listening to One a much as I did, but I quickly got pulled back into the world Leigh Ann has created and I did not want to come back out. Each time my iPod turned itself off I found myself putting it back on again for 'just another 30 minutes'. When the final chapter of One finished I was disappointed to see it end, and I really wish there had been an audiobook for Two so I could jump straight into listening to that.
Once again Leigh Ann had wowed me with her work, and I really, really, really, want an audiobook for Two to be released soon. ;)
