Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter: Audio Review

Out of Sight, Out of Time
Gallagher Girls #5
By: Ally Carter
Read by: Renee Raudman
psst.... read my mini-reviews of the first two in this series

Audio Review: The narrator for Cammie sounds much older than a teen. I soon discovered that that didn't bother me. This is one of the few female narrators that I actually enjoyed. Listening to the audio of this title was delightful.

Book Review: There isn't much I can say about the premise of this title that won't give away a lot of the plot in the first 4 books. Cammie wakes up in the middle of the Swiss Alps with no memory of the past summer. After running to uncover the plot and the people behind the mysterious Circle of Cavan, a terrorist organization bent on killing Cammie, she has to recover her tracks to find out what she discovered last summer.

The Gallagher Girls series is one of my absolute favorites. Cammie and her friends are smart, resourceful, and so very girl. Even though this book deals with some of the biggest issues of any of Ally Carter's previous works, there are still plenty of laugh out loud moments. But, this is definitely the darkest of the Gallagher Girl books. Cammie has to come to grips with some very tough problems, including how to get back in her friends' good graces after she leaves them behind to figure out the clues her father found before his disappearance.

Fans of the series will be pleased with the appearances of some of their favorite characters. Including, but certainly not limited to: Zach, Aunt Abby, Agent Townsend, and of course, Cammie's loyal friends.

As with all of Carter's novels, I am pleased to report that the ending is very satisfying. Though I can hardly wait to get my hands on the final book in this series, its conclusion will be bittersweet.


  1. The main character wakes up in the Swiss Alps? This book sounds rather weird and interesting, and I've been wanting to read one of Ally Carter's books. Great review!

  2. I read this one really quickly because I already cared so much about the characters and it felt as though they were all in danger!
    I'd agree this is the darkest book of the series- and it was definitely the most "conspiracy theory" with the main mystery of Cammie's memory. Also, because Cammie narrates without those memories, I felt in the dark and very much surprised by some of the revelations at the end.
