I'm a big fan of Christine Feehan's Dark Series and this audiobook version blew me away. I LOVED the story. The narrators are wonderful and the female reader really brought the sweetness and strength of Marguarita across successfully. Additionally, the female narrator portrayed her various roles with flawless accents and she was charming and endearing. And the male reader is also excellent, contrasting her lightness with a deliberate smoldering sexiness. I found their fight for love through this book deeply emotional and I highly recommend it !
While I enjoyed reading the book, I did not enjoy the narrators. I did not like that they read separately. It would have been better if they had interacted the male and female characters together. It would have made for a more enjoyable listening. It was difficult hearing the female narrator reading the male sections and same with the male narrator. It made for a very disjointed listening experience. Dark Peril and Dark Slayer were so much better as the narrators Phil Gigante and Jane Brown did their parts interactively so it was a good dialogue between the characters in the appropriate male/female voices.
Dark Peril's performancoe was dead on and I expected the same with Dark Predator but was disapointed. The male performer was ok but the female performer lacked emotion and at times was speaking like she was speed reading. It could have been so much better.
Yes. Love Mrs. Feehan's stories.
I thought both narrators did very well, but if your going to hire two narrators then let the interact in each chapter. It was hard to get into the story because the narrator changed each chapter. Please let the female do the female voices and the male do the male voices. I was disappointed that Phil Gigante did not voice this book. The new narrators did well, I just prefer Phil's interpretation of the series.
Bring back Phil Gigante. I would be willing to re-buy all the audiobooks if he voice them.
I found that since I rarely have time to actually read, listening to books while I am busy, I can enjoy the books AND complete tasks.
I was very disappointed by the narrators in this book. I disliked the fact that not only did the woman not read the women's parts, but the male did the same... taking turns in their narration.
As always, Christine Feehan was able to give us a well thought out story line and keep us interested in the book. I was sorry that Margarita did not get her voice back after conversion though, I thought she would.
