She shows great enthusiasm
the rescue. of the near death of the wolf
I love this series and enjoy listening to the stories. I don't appreciate, however, they accent that Ayla is portrayed having in this book or the animal sound effects.
Just read it and let my imagination take care of the sound effects.
Too much leaving the story to learn about the ways of the first people. I find myself losing interest and fast forwarding through all that and the repeated sex parts. And why after 4 books you changed Ayla's voice?!
Sandra Burr randomly starts using an exaggerated accent for Ayla in this book.. IT'S REALLY HORRIBLY DONE! The level of accent changes multiple times in just chapter 1, Even the same paragraph of dialogue! I might have to give up listening to this series while doing other things and reserve it for when I have time to devote to actual reading.
I've been an avid reader my whole life, and have discovered the joy of having books read to me. I'm enjoying my audible membership.
Why did the narrator suddenly change pronunciation of words that have been the same for 4 books? As a reader who has listened to the entire series, I found this very distracting. I also hated the new accent given to Ayla. This sounded very odd after having the character voiced the same for the first 4 books.
I also hated the constant retelling of their history every time Ayla and Jondalar met someone new.
weird new accent for the main character, and differing pronunciation from the previous books.
The storyline was a little more interesting this time around.
