My wife and I absolutely love Audible. We spend a lot of time traveling with our photography business, and we listen to a whole lot of books
My wife and I listen to audio books together. While we give the book a good rating, we give the reader 1/2 a star. It is hard to listen to a 11 or 12 year old girl talk about "f" this or "b job" that...Looking at the series it seems as though book 4 was on the "audio" shelves first, while books 1-3 came out after, so they actually took the worst reader away and improved the audio. But man, can you redo book 4 and 5..and from the sound of book 6 she doesn't seem much older. We are getting the books, but we are going to have to read them ourselves. Sigh.....
The narrator sounded 12 so that was weird. def. miss the person who did the first 3 books.
But love the series.
Don't like changing voices in the middle of the series thou.
While the book itself was good, I almost couldnt listen to it all. The new narrator sounds like a 12 year old. There are really no longer any differences in the character voices. Really hope they find someone else or go back to the first narrator who was really great.
I liked the book. Bought the book and read it. Before hand, I had bought the audio book and couldn't get beyond 25 minutes. Trust the reviews, the narrator is not the right fit, incredibly young sounding, not a 17 year old's voice at all. The narrator for the first three, while she mispronounced words regularly and whoever was doing her sound editing didn't remove lip wetting and swallowing --ek!... it was still 10 times better than this narrator on Untamed. She sounded like she was twelve. Note -- it's not her fault that she sounds like she does, it was, however, a bad choice for this book. Save your $ and credits, read the actual book. You have been warned -- I wish I had listened to the reviews here before wasting my credits. : /
I'm a book lover. I call myself a booky.
I love the:A House of Night Novels and for the first few novels the person who Narrates them brings you into the world of these books and makes you feel like you know these kids.she makes their world come to life.I don't like to be mean or anything but the person who is Narrating now is not good at her job or maybe she is just not right for these books.I feel unconnected to these books because her voice is kind of...I don't like it her voice that is.she can't even get stevie rye's voice right I mean come on what the HELL were they thinking of if it is not broke don't fix it.What happen to the other person who Narrated the first couple of books.They should bring her back but other then that I LOVE THE HOUSE OF NIGHT BOOKS.
Like many people say on other sites this won't win an award for best writing.... however it does keep you interested if you like the character Zoey. It took me all the way to the second part of the story to get used to the new narrator. I hated her at first... now she is growing on me. Not much to say except I like it enough I will finish the series.
Great audiobook. I didn't realise it was the fourth in a series which was a bit annoying. Would be really good if it made some mention of this in the blurb. Otherwise not a bad listen to for teens or teen hearted people.
Will be interesting to see what happens in the next book.
This is a great series I just love it and the narrator does an excellent job.
