Audiobook Review: 5+++ Stars
Two years ago, when I listened to the audiobook of Girl Online I was amazed with the beautiful story of Penny Porter and the incredible production of the audiobook. Last year, Girl Online On Tour was published and I loved it too, but I was left with a sad face because of how it ended. SPOILER ALERT View Spoiler »Penny and Noah broke up. « Hide Spoiler But in the end, I understood why it happened and I knew it was for the best, but my heart was so so sad 🙁 And that’s why I was so eager to listen the third audiobook of the series, especially for the title: Girl Online GOING SOLO, and the synopsis and despite me being all #TEAMNOAH4EVER I wanted to know what was going to happen with Penny in this new Novel because I’m also #TEAMPENNY4EVER and she deserves the best, always and forever.
Anyway, enough about my rambling…. Girl Online Going Solo… This audiobook kept me smiling like an idiot 80% of the time, and the 20% remaining I was crying like a baby. Oh My God this story was even more extraordinaire than I expected, and I expected a lot already. I loved the plot in this book, the development of all the characters was amazing. Penny for example, was more mature, and she found out what was really important in her life and the limits she had in order to not compromise herself. Elliot, Oh My God, I love that kid. He’s the best friend ever and his role changed a lot from the other books, because the situation with his family was in the worst moment and when he was always the great support for Penny, this time it was his time to need her support. Posey, Penny’s new friend, was one awesome addition to the gang. She was sweet and talented and amazingly forgiven. Penny’s family was awesome, as always, and there was a surprise visit that I loved so much. Not even the characters that I didn’t like were very well developed, such as Meghan and the new Scottish guy in town: Callum. I don’t really wanna spoil anything about him, but I was so disappointed with him and I’m glad Penny knew how to handle things with him.
And my favorite moment, not only because it made my heart race as fast as Penny’s heart was racing, but because it also showed the strong character Penny had become in the last year of her life, was when Noah returned. I’m so pleased with how things wound up for Penny and Noah. It wasn’t easy, to be honest, but that gives more credit to the story. It was PERFECT!!!
I’m not sure if there will be more books for Girl Online, because this book had a sense of closure, even more than it had in the previous books. This isn’t the kind of series where the books has cliffhangers that rip your heart in pieces. Each book had a good ending but left something open for the future, and despite the ending of the third installment of the series felt more final to me, I wish there was more to Penny’s story, maybe when she goes to college, or when she’s an adult. I’m so sure she will always follow her dreams and she’ll have a wonderful life. With Noah, I’m sure.
Hannah Tointon’s narration along with the awesome sound effects, made this audiobook one of the best ones I’ve listened to this year. I loved Hanna’s British accent. Her different inflexions had a distinctive tone, making the accent thicker or posher, depending to the character she was speaking for. My favorite part of the whole narration was when Penny was in a park and there were some guys speaking French and it was flawless. I wish more authors who has main characters with British accent in their books, looked for this girl, because she is really talented and her narration is really natural. Well done Hanna! Kudos for this amazing audiobook.
