This narrator is bad. I can't get into the book because it's too annoying to listen to.
I have read this series multiple times. But this audio book was a little hard to listen to
I love the entire world that sands created. I love this entire series
Her voices were weird. I heard way to much spit. I didn't love where she placed the pauses. It honestly sounded too robotic
I like the story so i guess???
Id honestly skip the audio book and read the real thing. You can get through it, but its not the best.
This narrator was horrible. I should have listened to reviews! The best thought I had is that it was computer animated voice with adjustments gone wrong. It put me to sleep the first 3 or 4 times I tried listening to it. I kept trying and towards the end the pain wasn't worth it. The story was so, so nothing like Laurell K Hamilton. No excitement, and I actually found myself bored during the love scenes. Not another one...ugh!
I read how many reviewers disliked Victoria McGee's narration, and I do understand their feelings. But I really enjoyed her vocal qualities and her interpretation because I found it unique and smooth and lovely to listen to.
I'm very glad I read the one reviewer who recommended to listen to this book first before the rest of the series because it seemed to introduce the characters.
I also really enjoyed this book. I found the author's world of humans from Antlantis with nanos particularly fascinating and wonderfully different from any of the many vampire books I've recently become addicted to. What is that? I admit to having a guilty pleasure of all these vampire books and hopefully, soon, I'll have enough of them and move on to something else! They are like potato chips.
I'm a fan of good story writing and I truly enjoyed this story. I really don't get into paying attention to the actual speaker's voices even though to listen to this speaker talk about a love scene was rather comical. Any looking for a good love story..this is it.
Would definitely try another book from Lindsay Sands- the story was excellent. However, this is my first time listening to a voice performance from Victoria McGee and I have to say that I have second thoughts of purchasing another narration by her. I will be looking into getting other titles by Lindsay Sands; hopefully with a different narrator or in print form.
I have to say I was not impressed by the vocal performance. The entire audio book the tone was breathy (the best way I could describe it). You can hear her inhaling for her next sentence throughout the audio book and almost gushing into the microphone. Along with this problem there are random long pauses, not for dramatic effect but like the audio feed is cut out--and this is an unabridged title. A few times during the audio performance I heard audio inserts from a entirely different speaker. I haven't listened to other performances by McGee but I am hesitant to spend money (or even credits) just to have another performance like this one. Her out-of-breath- tone put me to sleep most nights and I ended up listening to this title during my workouts just to stay awake (usually listen while crocheting, cooking, and while driving).
My recording kept skipping. Couldn't stay committed because I spent too much time trying to fix this and remembering my playback position. Might return for my credit
I really should have listened to the other reviewers and skipped this book because the narrators voice is the most distracting and annoying thing I've ever heard. The only thing I can liken her reading style to is if you combined the sound of a 90s computer reading to you with an NPR host. This could be the best book ever and sadly I'll never know. Avoid this narrator at all costs.
Really liked the story line. The narration was awful though. The breaks between her different sessions of ready were obvious snd had a small pause. In the beginning of the book i could here background noise. I swear i could here birds. That being said. I really enjoyed the story so i was able to work past he low production level of the actual audio.
I read this book in paperback and wanted the entire series in e-book and audio, but I am so sorry for doing that I. This narrator is absolutely horrible, no life in the words, no change of cadence or inflection, just one continuous monotonous voice.
I'm really upset about that since I really enjoy this story and the whole series. I see she does 4 other books in the series, here's hoping she improves.
