I am a retired high school American Sign Language teacher. Ph.D in multicultural Education. Married, 2 grown daughters.
In my "really like it" list.
All of them. Each had a valuable place in the overall story.
She did well with all of them. Good narrator.
No, just couldnt stop listening!
Sarah Addison Allen does it again, produces a "can't put it down" book.
Interesting story, some what predictible
I did not have a favorite character.
I loved her voicing of the characters
Paxton's gramdmother. A true southern lady from a time gone by.
To read, to dream, to love, to experience, to aspire...
I look forward each of her books, each has the right mix of magic, love, south, friendship, families, and a wide range of human emotions, and delicious as the juice of a yummy peach.
I have read several of Allen's books, and have loved every one of them! I love how she brings magic into her stories and it is so believable! Don't miss any of Sarah's books--I can't wait to read/listen to more!
I love Sarah Addison Allen's books. They're like comfort food for my soul. A few people have complained about the narrator, but I love her voice and I found it perfect for this book.
I like the author; however, the story was ruined by the narrator. I will be buying the paperback version instead because the narrator's voice is so whiny and annoying that I couldn't tolerate listening to it.
Yes, I like the author. I also read Garden Spells which was great
Voice reminded me of my children whining and begging.
Sarah Addison Allen's stories are TOTALLY MAGICAL. I want to be sure that is understood.
The reader made the story go flat - I struggled with this one :(
my favorite is Kate Reading ,, BUT Sarah A. A. has had other gr8 readers too.
Audible + Sarah A. A. = a win !
Possibly. I love Sarah Addison Allen--that's why I selected this book.
It was lovely.
I have enjoyed Sarah Addison Allen since I discovered her first book. Karen White is a perfect match.
I love Sarah Addison Allen as an author. I have read several of her books and find her language and character development to be a true joy. She is whimsical, funny and has an ability to make magic happen on the page. Often it is like catching a glimpse of a fairy in the woods. Karen White tore the wings off the fairy and stomped on them. She was too breathy and her inflections and cadence were completely off. It was so distracting. Not to mention that the differences between female and male voices were so unnoticeable that I had a hard time figuring out who was supposed to be flirting with whom. The only characters that she seemed to pull off half successfully were the old women/grandmother’s voices and even those were weak. It was genuine disappointment and a disservice to Sarah Addison Allen as a writer.
I like the characters and how you aren't hearing from only one character but from all
All 4 books I have listened to have been great, they keep you wanting more. Which usually means I am in my garage for another hour trying to hear more of the story :) Great books, not mushy :)
