I found Voices refreshing and charming. My page-turner check marks go to Writing and characterization.

3.6 stars

Voices is told in dual first person POVs from the two main characters perspective. One of the advantages of first person POV, when well-managed, is deep emotional connection. That was my experience with Voices. I was instantly in love with Aimee and Reizo, boy and girl next door, with flaws but also plenty of good qualities and

The cover for Voices by R. E. Rowe is pretty good. It could use some more sass but I like that the book cover is connected to the actual story. The first chapter is interesting so it got me to reading more of the book but it was super sloooooow. I don’t like slow beginnings. Nothing was happening for, like, half the book. There’s that romance thingy and yes, it was in

I hardly managed to reach the end of this nightmare and I wish I didn't. At first I was annoyed by the unrealisticness of the characters and the lack of stuff happening; but the ending was flat insulting and absolutely unnecessary.

This was supposed to be a book about reincarnation. Uhm.. well, where was this so called reincarnation? I didn't see it.
All I did see were two teenagers, an ex-track girl who stopped competing for a heart problem and a tagger guy that hears two distinct voices in his

Thanks to NetGalley for providing me with a free copy of the ebook

I'll admit that what first attracted me to the book is the charming cover. I just love the colours and the atmosphere it creates. I was happy to discover more illustrations of this kind incorporated in the book.

But let's focus on what's really important for a book to work: the characters and the plot. The main focus is definitely on the characters and their feelings. Unfortunately, two main figures, Aimee and Reizo, are basically

3 1/2 Platypires for Voices by R.E.Rowe

Voices is an original story that was really quite interesting to read. I liked that Reizo was not your typical male lead. He's a guy dealing with a mental illness that causes him to hear multiple voices. The only outlet he has is his art. Tagging his town with his street art is his only joy in life till he meets Aimee. She comes with her own set of issues after surviving a near death experience. Their love of art and innocence is what really drew me to them

I was blown away by this book. It starts out as a typical 'kids who don't fit in find each other book' and then the plot twists start...bam...bam....bam! I can't say much about specifics without giving too much away, but the characters are real, the setting could be anywhere in middle America and that just makes the other elements have more impact. I picked it up because of the two main characters being artists from different backgrounds- just mildly curious- and ended up reading the w

I was drawn to this book because of the art aspect. I really enjoyed that part of it, but became interested in the story too. I was glad to see the two main characters bond, since they both seemed to be so alone. I had the feeling there was more to the voices that Reizo heard. I also didn't quite understand the "General" portions of the story. I look forward to reading the second book in the series, "Whispers", in order to get a better understanding of the voices and the "General". ...more

*I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
The story of Ames and Reiz is one that was beautiful, heart breaking, upsetting, and loving all at the same time. So much happened in this book that I cannot say very much without giving spoilers, which is something that I do not do in reviews. But what I CAN say is…this is an AWESOME story that you will not be disappointed in reading!! Definitely 5 STARS!

This multiple character viewpoint novel has an original plot-line. The compelling story moves along at a fast pace and explores the complexities of families, friends, mental health, life after death and, most complicated of all, trust. as i write this I am aware that this may seem a lot to cover in one novel but I was left feeling that justice had been done to all of these threads.

I was given a copy of this novel by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a fair review.

This book totally wasn't what I expected, but I'm glad I read it. It did rush information at times and kinda left of with a cliff hanger. The main characters were amazing and unique. Definitely a great mix of love, action, poetry, art, and meaning of life. ...more

This book is good. Really good.
It works well, is emotionally intense and the storyline is not as obvious as you would think in the first chapter.

„Voices“ von R.E. Rowe erhielt ich via Netgalley. Anders als sonst musste ich mich für dieses Buch nicht bewerben, da es ein „Read Now“ – Exemplar ist, das ich auf meinen Kindle laden konnte, ohne die Bestätigung des Verlages abzuwarten. Ich weiß nicht, wieso einige Bücher sozusagen verschenkt werden, während andere eine Bewerbung verlangen. Vermutlich liegt dieser Strategie eine spezielle Vereinbarung zwischen Verlag, Autor_in und Netgalley zugrunde. Für neue Autor_innen ist das vie

This wasn't a book that I will remember for long I suspect, given that I was halfway through it and then set it down and forgot I had been reading it. It originally caught my attention because I love coming of age stories and reincarnation stories that suggest a full circle closure of something started in the past, but I think maybe even though this book was well written and had interestingly developed characters, it tried to have too many different elements and didn't focus enough on what its g ...more

This is the start of something good

It takes a really good plot to hold my interest, especially when the whole storyline is predicated on the premise of reincarnation which I emphatically do not believe in.
The Characters are really true to life. The subplots are realistic, the mystical aspect is toned down
If those parts were gone this book would still be an "on the edge of your seat" thriller. However those mystical bits are weaving another layer into the story that is just as nerve racking as al

I thought this was a story about reincarnation but it seems more like a story about a boy who hears voices. I know that his is a YA story and that usually doesn’t detract me but I found this book to be slow and it failed to hold my attention. I’ve picked it up several times over the last few weeks before I finally finished it tonight. While it had some interesting parts it was too easy to walk away from and will be quickly forgotten.

The romance was great. The art was great. The characters were so amazing! The sci-fi detracted from the story for me. By the end, the sci-fi ruined the story. I am disappointed, but I understand the necessity of it to move the story forward. It won't be a story that I am interested in reading.
And my review would not be complete without admitting that I do have a theological issue with the way death, the afterlife, and the soul are presented. It ends up rather depressing I think.

It was a slow starter. For a long time I wasn't sure I would finish it. Very interesting story line that still doesn't quite make sense but almost. The whole "login:" parts through me for a loop I didn't really understand them. you'll understand what I mean when you read it. Overall it was enjoyable, not something I read every day. ...more
