The Fall Of Butterflies by Andrea Portes | Audiobook Review

Why Did I Listen To The Fall Of Butterflies by Andrea Portes?

The Fall Of Butterflies by Andrea Portes kind of appealed to me based on the fact that it was a newer book that was lying around my house. I liked the orange cover. The comparison to We Were Liars and Looking For Alaska also really drew my attention as I genuinely enjoy those books. It seemed like this would be a good book to listen to from a new to me author.

What’s The Story Here?

Basically The Fall Of Butterflies is about this girl named Willa Parker who lives in a boring town called What Cheer in Iowa. She is not popular or anything. Anyways she ends up going to this boarding school called Pembroke Prep which brings her way out of What Cheer. She’s down for it though, but she doesn’t intend on falling in line or becoming super popular there. Against Willa’s best intentions, she ends up becoming friends with this girl named Remy Taft who introduces her to parties and popularity. This is totally one of those coming of age books, FYI.

How Did I Like The Fall Of Butterflies?

It has been a while since I have listened to Andrea Portes’s book. Straight up, it isn’t that memorable. I didn’t find it particularly bad or offensive or anything. I remember that there was drama involving Remy and Willa, and also a boy. The boy’s name is one I forget — it has been probably a month or two since I listened to this book! In all though, I think this book is probably better to physically read if you’re curious about it.

How’s The Narration?

The narrator of the audiobook is Cassandra Campbell. Normally, I like her narration and do not mind it at all. This time, however, I just kept spacing out. I do not know if it was her narration or the writing or what. Like, there’s nothing that is overly wrong with this book. It just wasn’t one of those blow me out of the water or stick with me forever kind of listens. I think it required a higher level of concentration than I had in me to give it, though.
