The Blossom Street books are syrupy and predictable. The reader knows within the first couple of pages how everything will end. No surprises. But I enjoy my time on Blossom Street. I enjoy the simple stories of everyday life. I read a lot of suspense and thrillers. I spend a lot of time in the company of serial killers (in books). So every now and then, a syrupy, predictable book is perfect. I look forward to my next visit to Blossom Street.
I nearly didn't finish the book and wish I had listened to a sample before downloading. The reader used way too much enthusiasm for my taste and several times I wondered if I was listening to a children's book. It really spoiled the story for me.
While the story was cute, the narration detracted from it so much as to make listening to this book almost unbearable. Each and every character sounded exactly the same which made following dialogue problematic. Her enunciation was pretty lousy, as well. This was just painful to listen to.
The story is nice, but the narrator is a big distraction. She does not read with appropriate inflection and she uses the same voice throughout - for every character. I recommend a different version of this book.
Her books are so good. They leave you feeling so good after listening to them. This was the first one I had listened to that was narrated by Delilah. I must say, she was excellent. You could hear the characters smile in her voice. It was very well read!
I always enjoy Debbie Macomber. Maybe some of the outcomes are predictable, but she has a nice way of bringing a story together. The best thing about this book is Delilah, the narrator. She speaks with a smile in her voice, and is perfect for Macomber books. Looking forward to the next installment of life on Blossom Street!
