Not in this case.
She was constantly putting emphasis on the wrong words or too many words in the same sentence. Plus her choice of voices for some of the secondary characters was limited. It was all very distracting and frustrating because I always enjoy Christine Feehan.
I have to say, it takes a lot for me to complain about a narrator. It has to be a tough gig with all the voices/characters used. But this was really bad. From a bad Joe Friday voice for Jonas to making Abby sound like a five year old, I really had a hard time listening to the story as I was too busy wincing at the voices used.
I love Christine Feehan's books, and especially the drake sisters series. I identify with Kate Drake, being an observer of life. The relationship between the sisters is a delight to read about.
I like a lot of different books, but I'm a sucker for a good love story.
I wanted to toss the book after 10 min because of the narrator, she absolutely can not do this book. Maybe if there were fewer characters but not a book with 7 females. The voices were awful.
maybe if there were multiple readers
Too many females to try to differentiate vocally made it .... painful to listen too.
I liked the basic story and would be interested in a sequel with a different reader or a group.
It was great to get a peek at all of the sisters in this book. Sarah's story is short & didn't give much detail but this one takes us further into the Drake's world. I'm glad Matt had the intestinal fortitude to stick out the weirdness & see Kate for the amazing person she is along with her sisters. Something's definitely brewing between Hannah & Jonas. It will be interesting to see how that plays out. Great story looking forward to the next one.
Admittedly, I'm listening to all these books out of order... but I have to say that if I had listened to this before the others I would not have continued. This woman sounds like she is reading to pre-schoolers, and gets on my nerves in about 5 minutes. I would love to just get my money back and buy the kindal book to read, but I know that wouldn't happen.
everything. She is slow, and makes me feel like she's talking down to the audience
I like the Author, and the Drake sister stories so far have been awesome. I think this was the last one I had to listen too to complete the series. (I've already listened to the one where they all get married). It's just sad it had to end like this.
I love this book, so when I saw that they had an audio version I was ecstatic until I started listening to it. I thought it would be like the other Drake audio books, Boy was I wrong, it was so bad that I had to stop listening.
Nothing!! !00% Nothing, it was horrible, maybe it's because I was comparing her to Alyssa Bresnahan, who did the other Drake sisters stories, but I'm sorry I didn't like her performance at all.
They should redo the audio book and have Alyssa Bresnahan, narrating!
This is the most boring book I ever listened to. Started reading in September and still not finished in December. The narrator makes the book go slower. Story line just drags on and on.
No story line, the first book I ever read that I couldn't finish cause it was so slow!
Horrific performance, did nothing to perk up book!
All the characters!
Give me my credits back!
Narrator reads like she is reading to 6 year olds
Normally love Christine Feehan's books but really did not enjoy this one due to the narrator.
Reads almost as bad as a see spot run book
The book was middle-of-the-road for this particular series. I like the series but this narrator was so irritating that it was difficult to listen to. She makes women's voices sound squeeky - like cartoons. She needs a lot more practice and better vocal ranges.
