I'm about halfway through this book and can't sing its praises enough. The character and plot development pull one in, and the narrator is a delight! I agree that Ms. Reading is equally convincing as male or female with Mohawk, English, American or Scots accents.
This is my wonderful sons account that he has allowed me to have. Due to a neuromuscular disorder, reading is difficult. So thankful 4 this.
Yes. I thoroughly enjoyed this book more than I expected to. People said if you like Outlander then you'll like this, but I'm not sure why because it's totally different. I guess maybe because its a well written historical fiction?
I liked the rapidity of the story so you werent sitting hanging to any storyline too long. I hate when a book leaves you wondering for endless chapters. it just kept moving while still keeping the integrity of the whole story.
No I have not. She did a great job though. Any time I listen to a new narrator, I right off think they are horrible just because they are unfamiliar, then as we move forward, I become accustomed to their voice. No narrator is perfect, and it gets kind if annoying reading reviews where people dissect one.
Loved the length. I really appreciate being able to get the most bang for my buck. Loved this book amd look forward to the entire series.
If you liked the Outlandet series, then you will like this. For me it was a bit slow in the beginning, I would give the story 3.5 stars. I picked this based on the narrator, she was great in the wheel of time series.
Kate Reading's narration of this book was just amazing. Reading gave each of Donati's characters their own style and voice, which made it so easy to love (or hate) and connect with them. Plot twists, strong women characters, love, and danger. This story leaves you with a happy ending... but not true closure, which would normally infuriate me, but it's done in a way where you can either leave the story as is and walk away satisfied, or fall into the next book. Well, I went with the latter and I don't regret it.
I had been looking for a new series to get into after the end of the "Pink Carnation" series and I followed Kate Reading's list of books because she is an amazing narrator. I just kind of fell into this one. It is definitely worth the listen.
I love books...I love storytelling. Audiobooks allow me to enjoy a great story while still being able to do my daily routine. Thanks Audible
Yes...and I have too.
I think of The Last of the Mohicans.
Ms. Reading's performance was wonderful throughout the entire series. Class act.
All of the above. I am transported into the wilderness.
So, I downloaded this book- thinking it would be similar to Outlander, as I'm a fan of the works of Diana Gabaldon. This was NOT LIKE OUTLANDER. That being said...I don't want to be overly negative--I will just say that I really didn't enjoy this book, it frustrated the heck out of me. It just stopped!!!
I will stick with Diana Gabaldon, Kate Morton and Susanna Kearsley...
I liked the story, and got a kick out of the references to Jamie and Claire that popped up. The reader was fantastic, and it was easy to know who was talking.
I began reading Into The Wilderness series 3 or 4 years ago. I love long historical novels so these have fit very nicely into my library. When book six "The Endless Forest" became available I bought it to finish out the series. I decided then to go back and read the entire series again in order, with no distractions. I must say, if possible they were much more enjoyable the second time around. How can anyone find fault with Kate Readings narration, perfect. I highly recommend the series.
