Queen of Babble

Queen of Babble
By Meg Cabot

336 pages
5 hours and 41 minutes listening time
(this is the abridged version)

Grade D

I didn't realize that this was the abridged audio when I started it, however I will tell you, I don't think I would have been able to get through the unabridged version. I know there are a tone of Meg Cabot fans out there, and I liked the other book that I listened to by her, however, I think the problem with this book was that it was narrated by the same person who did the Twilight series, Ilyana Kadushin. Now whenever I hear her voice, I think of a very insecure, annoying, self absorbed character. Ironically, that is exactly what Izzy is in this book too.

I was very embarrassed with this character, she did some very strange things, that were very awkward. I was happy to be done with this book. I was happy it was over after only one day. Also, I have found out after I listened to this book that it is apart of a series. I will probably not be continuing with the series, and if I do, it will be at a later date.

Thanks for the review. Good to know this isn't a must read. I'm not a very big Meg Cabot fan either.
