I listened to the first 8 books thru my library site....I was used to the female narrator and don't care much for this male narrator, but as usual, the story and characters were Great!
Love the series. Ms Feehan develops wonderful characters, creates a world and polulates it with plots and subplots that keep the readers attentuon.
As intended, it was a fun enjoyable read with a little mystery thrown in.
I thought he did a great job. I almost didn't get this because other people wrote negative reviews but I thought he was good. Most of Feehan's audio books are narrated by a women so this was a change but it was well done.
What can I say another great book by Christine Feehan. I really loved how Byron was so gentle and caring to Antoinetta. Makes me want to hear her play as well. You really need to get this book.
This book had a different narrator than the previous dark series books. I didn't like him as well, but the story was great.
I've been reading this series for sometime now and always find Christine's dark series intriguing, this book however; is my first audio book so I was a little worried when I read the reviews on the narrator so at this point I really can not complare.
Personally, I did not find the narrator to be as bad as most described. I found the listening experience pleasant and entertaining.
Dark Symphony however; did have some twists in it that were quite different from the other books I have read but I found them amusing and entertaining. Once you get a clear understanding of the story line, the rest falls into place and makes for enjoyable listening.
The book is quite long but over a few days of listening here and there on my Kindle Fire I am looking forward to moving on to the next audio book....
At first, the story line was a little hard to follw but after listening and getting into the audio; the commitment and the devotion Byron had not just for his lifemate but for her family as well was touching...
The love scenes between the 2 main characters are always a favorite of mine...
I am an avid reader of trashy romance novels, especially anything that has to do with Vampires. Some days, I can pick up a book and just read, others times it is nice just to leave reality behind and lose myself in the darkness of the unknown....
A good story. But the narrator made the hero sound like a pervert. It was very difficult for me to continue listening to the book. The narrator has a decent voice, but his hero's accent and gravely voice made the hero sound like someone extremely ancient NOT sexy or desirable as I am sure the author meant for him to be.
I feel like this book is an extension of the Scarletti Curse.
No!! Not if he continues to make the hero sound like he is 200 years old!
Redo the audiobook with one of the other narrators to give the hero a better image through his voice. At least make him sound younger, please!
I truly enjoyed Feehan's story; but this narrator must have heard he was reading a 'vampire' book, and decided to channel Bela Lugosi. He was one step away from "I vant to suck your bloooood." A different narrator - with a more modern voice for our hero - would have definitely made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience.
Enjoyed the characters - had difficulty at times keeping them straight (narrator); but found a contemporary Carpathian Feehan introduced here particularly refreshing.
When a narrator puts me to sleep there's a problem. There was no depth to this and I found myself wondering if the book would 'go' anywhere. Don't get me wrong, I love the Dark series but between the extremely poor pacing in this one AND the narrator's slow and ponderous method, I deleted the book from my player after listening to the first half.
