I think the story is about the same as the others but the narrator has such a screechy voice, mispronounces words and has been reading one line in the book twice. I have not encountered this with the other Macomber books and I've listened to a lot. It is hard to listen bc of the narrator.
I love Delilah on the radio, but she just doesn't do it as an audiobook narrator. She is too fast, too loud, and no distinction between characters.
Any of the prior narrators.
I don't care for Delilah reading this. In her radio program she always has a smile in her voice, which is fine, she's a motivational speaker. This book didn't require that all the time. I was frustrated with her pleasant upbeat tone throughout the book. The story is really a good one if you can get past the narrator.
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!
