Mindspeak by Heather Sunseri

Unabridged Audio Version

I listened to the unabridged audio version of Mindspeak by Heather Sunseri and narrated by Amy Landon from Audible. Listening time for Mindspeak by Heather Sunseri is 9 hours, 54 minutes.

Mindspeak by Heather Sunseri is the first novel in the young adult series of same name. I thought that Amy Landon was an okay narrator, not bad, but not great either.

As far as Mindspeak by Heather Sunseri goes, it was a decent read and had a lot of potential... But I didn't love it either. The main character, seventeen-year-old Lexi Matthews is a bit of a drama queen. She has trust issues and is a bit on the nervous side.

I thought Mindspeak by Heather Sunseri was a bit on the slow side for the most part, but did pick up the pace by the middle of the novel. 

I also thought the same reoccurring issues of Lexi Matthews having trust issues and not always making the best decisions grew a little old throughout the novel. 

The cliffhanger ending was not great either! We found out one key piece of information by the end of the novel, but there was so much more that could have been shared with readers in this novel that (probably) have been put off for future novels.

The following is a plot summary for Mindspeak by Heather Sunseri from Audible:
She was created for a purpose so revolutionary, someone was willing to kill for it. 
Seventeen-year-old Lexi Matthews keeps two secrets from her elite boarding school classmates - she's the daughter of a famous and controversial geneticist, and she can influence people's thoughts. 
But after new student Jack DeWeese heals her broken arm with an anything-but-simple touch, he forces Lexi to face a new reality - her abilities reach much further than speaking to the minds of others. 
After Lexi's father goes missing and she receives threatening emails, she can't decide whether to fall into Jack's arms or run and hide. 
As Lexi seeks answers to what she and Jack are, she discovers a truth more unsettling than anything her science books can teach. And letting Jack into her life of secrets is not only a threat to her very existence, but it just might break her heart wide open.
I am giving Mindspeak by Heather Sunseri a rating of 3 stars out of 5 stars. I have no interest in reading the rest of the 'Mindspeak' series.

Until my next post, happy reading!!
