The story is fantastic, as usual with Nora Roberts, but the narrator's attempts at an Irish accent are painful for those who are familiar with the lilting cadence of the Irish.
Could not get past the first chapter as the reader was so bad!!!!!
Nothing with this reader
Would love to have been able to listen to it
Give the story to another reder
This was the first book of Nora Roberts for me that wasn't from her Eve Dallas series. It was a good choice! The characters are very well rounded and interesting and the story was quite good. I was sort of expecting a lot of romance novel cliches and was happy to find an interesting original story. Patricia Daniels does a fine job reading the book.
The surprise and pleasure that the narrator who has been criticized provided a wonderful presentation, adding to an interesting and wide-ranging story line.
Her voices, her representation of dreams, thoughts and discussions with spirits clearly differentiated by the presentation.
I almost avoided this book due to performance reviews - choose for yourself - audible's policy will allow for a trial.
I loved the story telling by the characters.
The evening walk that Jude and Aden take to his special spot and the story he tells.
I believe this was my first time to hear her. I think her Irish accent was very well done. She did a fine job of emphasizing the individual parts. I felt like I was being drawn into the story.
I'm not sure what a tag line is.
Not too often do I read a book over shortly after I have finished it, but this one had a very special feeling to it. I will probably listen to it again soon.
Jewels of the Sun was exactly what you would expect of Nora Roberts. Magical story and setting yet the main character was extremely relatable. Excellent performance by Patricia Daniels.
I completely understand some listener's problem with the narration, but if they stop to think it takes a certain voice to be able to speak American English and Irish Accent English interchangably, it is a challenge. If you let yourself go with the story, you, don't notice the narration and can enjoy the story.
Absolutely! This is such a classic love story with a little magic thrown in.
Well, Jude and Aiden both top that list. Jude is at a crossroad and Aiden is still sort of at a crossroad. Aiden seems to have resigned himself to the fact that he will just be a pub owner after travelling the world. He doesn't talk about his travels much only because I think he still yearns to be freer. Jude has discovered she really hates what she has been expected to and did become. After all that hard work, what's a girl to do? Well, fall in love, I guess.
Hhhmmm...not really sure.
Life is full of jewels...you just need to pick the right one.
I have read this book numerous times and decided I wanted to listen to it during my travels. I love the vulnerability of Aiden when he is hugging Jude Francis in the cottage during a party. Aiden's sister sees them and is ready to give them grief about pda when Aiden turns to her and she sees the look in his eyes. This vulnerable, unheralded look. The sister stops in her tracks and turns to leave. Her friend asks what's going on and she says, "He's in love." Sigh...
paranormal irish romance
the next 2 books. for this book is part of a trilogy. this a great trilogy. you get attached to the chacters
this is a very charming trilogy I love some of the irish lilts and storylines are great.
Yes, I absolutely loved listening to it - it grabs you right in the first few minutes.
The characters, the fact that it was a trilogy and getting to know them and the thrill that there were two more books so I could continue to look forward to the continuing story of these great characters.
She was a great reader, which is hard to find. She relates well to the story and accents, not a monotone reader, she had great feeling.
I just couldn't stop listening - I didn't want to get out of the car it was a grabbing story - so enjoyable.
