I felt this lacked the excitement and wonderful, accurate research Nora Roberts so often puts in her novels. The
No. I would refer them to one of her other novels or series that really grab the reader/listener and draw them in.
Yes. Therese Plummer needs to give a listen to a current, modern Irish accent also. Her male Irish characters were like squeaky, funny puppets.
I didn't love the books but do love Nora Roberts. She, of course, comes through in spots.
I'll always take a chance on any of Nora's writing.
Visual, visceral and witty.Nora Roberts does have a fun hand with the supernatural. I think we could have found a better reader, but even with that problem, it's hard to mess up a Nora Roberts story and these two are so much fun. What's not to like about passion, romance, intrigue and just enough of a smattering of the paranormal to keep it interesting. Roberts characters are people first, witches second. And the dialogue is witty and fast paced. Now, much longer are we going to have to wait for Anastasia's story, Charmed? I've read all of Nora Roberts books - and this trilogy needs to be rounded out because a lot of information hinges on Anastasia's story and if readers loved the first two, they're going to adore the last one.
For Captivated, I'd say it was when Nash realizes Morgana hasn't been playing him -- she really is a witch. It's funny as hell. And with Entranced, it would have to be Mel putting all her trust in Sebastian and knowing he will find her when she finds herself in a nasty situation. Those are turning points in both storylines.
Plummer's performance for the female characters isn't bad but her male characters, with the exception of Sebastian, sound like teenagers. And Sebastian's
I chuckled a lot through these two because the characters were not only likeable, they were smart and funny and determined.
I love witty, fast-paced books that keep you turning the page.
This is a wonderful pair of stories that is well narrated. The characters are likable and the stories move along smartly. I found myself sitting in my car long after arriving at my destination because I didn't want to turn the story off. I join the many other reviewers in asking for the sequel to be turned into an audio book.
This was the only book I've ever quit reading in the first half of a Nora Roberts novel.
I found it without interesting plot and just plain boring.
Of course, most of her novels are very good.
Ms. Plummer's performance was fine. The subject matter never deviated and repeatedly described same old thing...not her fault.
No, just very disappointed. Waste of money.
I honestly couldn't get through this whole book. I expected to enjoy it since I normally like Nora Roberts and have enjoyed other books narrated by Therese Plummer, but not this one. I have the sneaking suspician that this was one of the first books Plummer narrated. While her reading is always a bit different, in this book it came across as awkward. She had a tendency to emphasise certain words in such a way that made the meaning of the sentences difficult to understand. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this book :(
The first half was sappy and uninteresting. The reader was really annoying. I had a hard time making it through. The second half was better and more like Nora.
I've been looking for a good read. I liked this book but it wasn't what I was looking for. Romantic from beginning to end it is, essentially, two books in one. So if you like fairy tale romance, you'll like this. I enjoyed it but got weary of the constant sexual tension in both stories.
These two stories were a pleasant surprise and were well worth it.
Narrator give an excellent performance
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
Wonderfully written with just the right amount of MAGIC and Romance! I bought this book and read it before I ever bought this download. The Narrator did a wonderful job conveying emotions and romance.
