I have listened to almost 300 audible books, and this was the worst narration of them all! It was too hard to get beyond it to find any merit in the story.
It was hard to tell if the book was good or not because the narrator was that bad.
So horribly bland and blase.
I was just so surprised that the poor narration of this book was ok'd by the author and publisher. Would love to know what the thought process was in that.
I listened to "Devil of the Highlands" a few weeks after listening to "The Bride" by Judy Garwood. There are so many similarities that I found myself making a list. A young English woman marries a Highland laird (in one story to escape a "wicked stepmother" and in one story by edit of the king). The young brides fumble their way through their new roles. In both stories their is a subplot, the Lairds' previous wives dying under mysterious circumstances. Too much to be a coincidence. Did anyone else notice this?
Loves to Read
Loved this book. Ms. Sands is my new favorite Author! Can't wait to read the second book in this series. Keep writing about these wonderful Highlanders.
Wonderful story line but Marianna Palka voice is way to mundane for this story. She has such a monotone voice you almost lost the story.
I am easily amused!
This book amazes me. I cannot be believe anyone would publish it. I love any book based in Scotland but I think this was written for the neurologically impaired or for readers with english as a second language. Every thought and concept was repeated at least twenty times. The narrator has got to be the worst I have ever heard and the story fell very flat. Don't waste your time.
12 step program please. I am addicted to Audible! I love trashy sexy books, award winning novels and everything between. Bring it!
This book is so cheesy...i was happy when it was over. I should have known by the cover! The main character is basically a Neanderthal who doesn't say much and expects the female lead to understand his intentions while he grunts his way through the book. I can't even remember their names....so not a memorable book.
I love books, it's my great escape.
Wow I really liked this story. It was really charming, sweet and utterly delightful. I will purchase more from this author. Oh, and by the way the narrator sounded so authentic.
