I wanted to love the Witches of East End. My library carries them all in eBook format, I usually love witchy stories, AND it's being made into a TV show. The deliciously wicked and scandalous start sucked me in. But the last 1/3 of the book, lost me. Suddenly all this complicated mythology and back story was introduced and then breezed over. I thought: Wait. Maybe it's because I'm listening to this book. Perhaps reading it would be different. So I got the eBook and read the last 1/3 of the book. Nope. It still felt odd, confusing, and rushed. Other than that, I did enjoy my time with the Witches of the East End. It just didn't give me that satisfied feeling I crave at the end of a book. You know the feeling right? It's akin to eating a full meal, having a happy belly, and savoring the taste that is still on your tongue. I missed that feeling with this one.
Words aloud: Katie Schorr is a great narrator. She has a pleasant pitch, tone, and sounded age appropriate. I really liked her.
Whippersnappers: Naughtiness aplenty. I can't remember if there is any foul language but there is definitely sex, sexuality, infidelity, witchcraft, and murder.
Wind-up: The Witches of East End by Melissa de la Cruz is narrated by Katie Schorr and is 7 hours and 51 minutes long. Audiobook rating: 3 stars. Narrator rating: 5 stars.
