When I purchased this audio, i listen to the sample and thought hey, this prob be a good book. Im sure the paperback is great. But the woman that narrates this book. I almost passed out at work. She doesnt have a voice that is listener friendly. It was bland.These audios i buy to listen at work and driving to and from work. And this is the only book on here i found that it was just blahhhhhhh.......
If I follow you, it's because I've glanced through your reviews and more than likely found books I've agreed with you on and also found at least one book that the majority loved, and you and I were less than thrilled with. I know I should follow you then for that next read that I will enjoy.
I like Nora Roberts books. They are usually an easy, it will keep me entertained, good enough book. But I usually don't enjoy a series I have read for a while and then listen to because it doesn't mesh with how I perceived the characters to be portrayed. New series, I thought probably okay. I like Dick Hill, a lot of people greatly dislike his narration.
The narrator's voice is fine for just the intonation, speaks clearly, but the portrayal makes the characters seem weak, whiny. Didn't care for her "male" voice. I listened to this book in the middle of listening to another book, when I got fed up with one, I'd switch back.
I might have enjoyed the book if I'd read it and not listened because I probably would have perceived the characters differently in my mind.
If you are an adult female, though, and have probelms with your mother, you could learn something from it.
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!
I truly enjoyed this book, once I got past the reader's
slight speech impediment. I just wish Nora would
just hint at sex and pass up on the details, although some of her books are much worse.
This is the first Nora Robert's book I did not enjoy. I did not care for the narration and it was distracting from the story. Typically I have a hard time putting them down. This one I had to force myself to listen to all the way through.
This story was one of my favorites by Nora Roberts. Although the narrator did have a lisp, I thought she did an amazing job and I can certainly overlook and just appreciate the strength and fortitude of the narrator to pursue her passion in spite of a minor speech impediment.
Can't wait for the next one in this series!
As usual Nora Roberts has done it again. She has put together another great story with characters that you care about and identify with. I cannot wait for the next books in the series to come out. If you love books by Nora Roberts, you'll love this one too. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
This is Nora Roberts at her utmost best. The characters were AWESOME . . . I hated for the story to end. She pulled me into Mac and Carter's relationship so much that I wished I could be a lifetime spectator. I can only HOPE that this is one of her stories that is made into a movie . . . WOW! What a movie it would be and how it could pump up the reputations of all Professor's. I wished I could have one of my own (Sexy Professor)!!!!
