Well took a while to get into started to get interested then sex audibe had to turn off and fast forward few times since had mixed company in the car. I love Jim the demon dog. I think he is the best part. He will keep me listening. Good mix of characters. Was ok Listen in the end. But watch out for the first part almost turned it off and deleted it.
Overall I'm enjoying the book as a light read that is fun. The narrator does a good job with the characters and following the book but the editing of the 'extra' sounds such as swallowing and the oddly long pauses, makes it difficult to listen to. It is rare for me to be this disappointed and distracted by how one of the audible books sounds.
OKay, I have to agree with the people who pointed out the smacking and heavy swallowing! I loved the story and surprisingly enjoyed the husky voice of the narrator. The only issue I have is the mouth noises. It makes my skin crawl. I understand why the mouth noises exist but some editing needed to be done. It was almost painful!
If you can get past that then you are going to really enjoy it. Maybe listen to it driving down the road with the windows down.
This was an intentionally funny story. I did not think Barbara Rosenblatt was the best voice for this character. She captured the comedic aspect but not the romance.
I usually like Barbara Rosenblat as a narrator, but in this case, it was hard to tell if it was her or the annoying lead character that made me wish I hadn't purchased this book. Either way, after 2 attempts to get into the story, I found myself completely irritated and finally gave up and wrote it off as a loss.
If you want a review of the story, you'll have to go to another person's review because I couldn't manage to listen to the whole book due to the narrator. Odd pauses, swallowing, lip smacking - it was completely distracting. I'm going to go buy the book instead and read it, wish I hadn't wasted my money on this audiobook. Audiobook listeners beware! To sum it up in one word - dreadful.
I think the story would have been good, If wasn't for the fact that the narrator was lip smacking and swallowing constantly !!GROSS!! I mean Come on can't you edit that out!!
I loved the story, I really did. But, I can't get passed the swallowing of the narrator.
So far the story, hasn't been to bad, but narrator, Barbara Rosenblat is a very bad choice. For on thing, she sounds way to old for the main character. Secondly, she comes across as if she is on some kind of medicine, which is making her have a very dry mouth. You are forced to hear her take many deep breaths. And this gets really annoying.
