AudioBook Review:: Crash by Lisa McMann

Title: Crash
Author: Lisa McMann
Publisher: Simon Audio
Narrator: Allyson Ryan
Length: 5:18:49
Review by: Mary

Jules lives with her family above their restaurant, which means she smells like pizza most of the time and drives their double-meatball-shaped food truck to school. It’s not a recipe for popularity, but she can handle that.

What she can’t handle is the recurring vision that haunts her. Over and over, Jules sees a careening truck hit a building and explode...and nine body bags in the snow.

The vision is everywhere—on billboards, television screens, windows—and she’s the only one who sees it. And the more she sees it, the more she sees. The vision is giving her clues, and soon Jules knows what she has to do. Because now she can see the face in one of the body bags, and it’s someone she knows. Someone she has been in love with for as long as she can remember.

I'm always intrigued by the mind. What it can do and the whole psychology of it. I wasn't sure what to expect from Crash. But, it was interesting. Narrator Allyson Ryan did a good job of painting a picture with her different voices for the characters. You feel as if there are more than one narrator present, but there isn't. 

I was expecting more paranormal, but I liked that it wasn't too much. I liked that the ending was unresolved. I know that other reviews are saying the opposite but I liked it. It felt...real. This could actually happen. Could it happen to me? 

There is a little romance story thrown in there and you all know how much I love any kind of romance. I welcome it! I'm very excited to know what the next book holds because I still don't understand why Jules was seeing things in the first place. 

Crash is quick and easy on the ears. I enjoyed the story and am looking forward to the next installment!


  1. I'm not a big Contemporary YA fan or much of an Audiobook fan but this one looks like one I'll have to try. Great review :)
