The story is so boring, I can't imagine anyone enjoying it. But worst than the writing, is the voice of the narrator, it is very irritating and mono toned. I have to advise anyone not to waste your money on this audio book....
I am having trouble listening to this book. No offense to Ms. Durante, the narrator, but her lisp can be distracting. I was sorry in the beginning I used my credit. I continued to listen as I did not want to waste my credit and eventually you get used to the lisp and become more involved in the characters. All in all, not Ms. Roberts' best effort. Just okay. I am not sure if it was the narrator or content.
I love all of Nora's books but seeing some of the reviews for the narrator Emily Durante, I was hesitant. Well I loved her! She made the characters come alive and I could just "see" them as if they were in the room with me. Great job!
Yes! I loved it! Most of my girlfriends are engaged or in serious relationships and a love story about close friends, a wedding business, and love? What more could we want?!
As much as I love Mackenzie, Laurel is definitely my favorite character. In terms of personality she is most like me.
I have not heard any other Emily Durante performances.
YES! I could not get enough of it. I listened to it in the car so I didn't get to listen to it all in one sitting, but I would have loved to!
I didn't hear the lisp other reviewers are talking about. The only complaint I have about the narrator is I wish she made more of a difference in the 4 main women characters. It was hard to tell who was speaking. Other than that though, I really enjoyed the narration. I'm glad I didn't let the negative reviews keep me from listening to this book. The story is classic Nora Roberts so it's excellent--of course. Really enjoyed this book & look forward to reading/listening the the rest of the serire.
This series is my all time favorite. I have read it and listened to it multiple times, but this narration is lacking. It does not give the attitude and personality to the characters that Nora Roberts so carefully crafted. Still, I would recommend it for the fabulous story!
I was very impressed with Emily Durante's performance. Her character voices were individual and lively and made the whole book a delight.
Check out the rest of the Brides quartet. Nora Roberts does it again.
Warm, personal, engaging.
Sometimes it's hard to see what's right in front of you.
I was looking forward to another Nora Roberts Trilogy. This has got to be the worst narration ever. Grating monotone, emotionless... If this were the first Nora Roberts book I read it would have been the last. I hope the author reads this and never uses this narrator
Story line was cute
get different narrator
I loved these books so decided to buy the audio for work time, however this narrator feels sounds like she is reading from a sheet of paper instead of sounding natural. She needs some practice, not enough differentiation in the voices which are vast between the girls. Recommend, but not a great narrator.
