I could not even make it through this book. The narration is horrible
His narration was slow and his female and children voices were horrible
I wish I could get a refund for this book
Yes. It is a realist small town romance.
The small town community feel
It was laid back and followed along with the rhythm of the story.
No; it was more like a lazy rainy day relaxing read.
I love listening to Nora Roberts books. They are entertaining and keep me occupied for long drives. Story line is believable and sweet and real. Loved Lizzy.
I LIKED his narration. I like that he is slow and easy. Slower at THOSE parts just draws you in and before you know drivers are looking at you funny cause your mouth is hanging open!!!
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
The Next Always, by Nora Roberts is a good story, but the narration, performed by MacLeod Andrews was found lacking. His character interpretation was annoying, for example, the brothers in this series all sound grumpy, the women sound whiny, and the children are intolerable as they seem to know only one pitch which is just short of screaming tantrums. I considered stopping the audio, but made it till the end. The story was a typically enjoyable Nora Roberts' novel. I'm glad that I was able to finish, but, had I known that the narrator would grate my nerves, I would have skipped this series. Sorry...
NR--another good series. Loved the characters in this book. Love Beckett's name also. I have already read Owen's story. Enjoyed it as well--I am reading it again awaiting Ryder's story to be released tomorrow.
I have enjoyed the narrator as well.
Say something about yourself!
I appreciated this story and look forward to the others in the series. I kept coming back to this book..put off buying due to the reviews about the narration. I found his narration style and delivery thoroughly pleasant. It was relaxing. I found he did as good a job as a man can when narrating women's voices. I thought the children's voices were fine. He did a very professional job. I love NR's stories. They seem to be my most favorites. Thanks for this lovely book. I absolutely loved the cover!
The Next Always was an enjoyable way to pass time while doing chores even if the story line is predictable and the same as all other Nora Roberts books.
The narrator makes the women and children sound extremely annoying. I also didn't like that during conversations between the characters it was difficult to figure out who was talking since many of the voices sound the same.
I really enjoyed the plot, but I would not recommend this as an audiobook. The narrator killed the book.
I enjoyed this book very much. Every time I turned the page, or pressed play, I felt that I was walking through Nora Roberts inn. I really enjoyed reading about the reconstruction of her very own property, and often found myself wondering if the reconstruction actually happened in this way.
Nora Roberts books are always easy listening.
I think a woman would have done a better job narrating. It was odd listening to a man to women's and children's voices.
I'm a Nora fan, but I can't finish this book. The narrator was a bad choice: bad pacing, bad intonations for female characters. The producer should have at the very least improved the timing. Truly, I lost track of the dialogue because the pauses between sentences were soooo long. Sorry, Nora, I can't comment on the story...it...is...just...sooooo....slooowwwww.......zzzzzzzzzz......
