Where does Switched rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I had already read Switched and the next two books in the trilogy, Torn and Ascend, and they had drawn me in and made me completely addicted, I was excited to read the third book i sat and wouldn't move till i had read the entire thing.
But Switched definitely drew me into this whole world straight away, I enjoyed the characters and their relationships, no one in this book is perfect, they all have flaws, and in some cases a lot of flaws, but you still relate to them and still feel for them.
The actual story line was very addictive, i was never sat there thinking i could just put this down for a bit and pick it up later as its dragging on now, I was always completely adamant that i could read another paragraph, another page, another chapter.
This was such an amazing novel!! The plot was great. The book like most novels, starts off abit slow but it soon gets more interesting to the point where you just want to keep on reading. I fell in love with some of the characters and I wished at one point that I've lived in their world. The narrating was really good, she brought the characters to life. I believed they were real. Overall, I would definitely recommend you reading this novel by Amanda Hocking. You will not be disappointed, I promise you.
I never expected this series to be so entertaining and addictive when I first bought Switched. The characters are interesting and the plot twists aren’t as predictable as most in this genre. However, this book is not for everyone. It’s like The Princess Diaries with trolls in it. If you are looking for something lighthearted and fun, this book would be a great choice, but if you’re looking for something darker and more intense, I would suggest The Vampire Academy Series or The Infernal Devices Trilogy.

I listened to this book over 6 years ago and have been saying I was going to listen again because I remembered really liking it. My feelings have not changed! I love how original this world is and even if it has the same feel as a movie I've seen, the paranormal aspect makes it a completely different story.
The characters are all great. You may love one and then hate the same one within the span of one book but that is what makes it great to me. You don't know who to trust, who is good and who is bad, besides Wendy of course! She has been thrown into a world she didn't even know existed but her life finally make sense once she knows about the Trylle. I am not a fan of magic in book but these are more abilities even if they call it magic so it works perfectly for me. Can't wait to start book 2.
The narration is awesome! Therese Plummer is my #1 favorite narrator and I remember wondering if she could pull off YA and I have to say YES she can and she does it perfectly. Great narration choice!
