It was fabulous. Great story, great storytelling. Becca Battoe just brought the characters to life.
The time travelers wife read by Fred Berman, Phoebe Strole. They did a great job, but Becca was a cut above!
Her ability to really create characters with her narration. The mood and warmth or lack of she would create.
its too cool a name, I wouldnt call it anything else! Hat off to EL James! She's amazing!
One of the best. Not only is it a good story, but the narator Becca Battoe is the BEST that I've listen to so far.
I haven't read any others like this.
I haven't yet, but I absoluetly will
If it's me taking them out, I would say Kate or Anna.. But I would definitely let Mr Fifty-Shades take me to dinner any time.
Not worth the hype
Anything better then this
Her character voices
Will not be listening to the next in the series
I have never heard and Audiobook narrator this bad. Do not listen to the Audiobook if you have never read these books before. She reads very slow so you loose the banter and flow between the characters because you are just waiting for her to get to it. She is also terrible at accents. In the first book she sounds like a teenager trying to put on a mans voice (all over exaggerated deep voice that she struggls to use constantly) it was very distracting and unrealistic. Also any new character automatically has a southern drawl (annoying and inconstant given that the book is set in Washington State!) and then when she try's to do a foreign accent I don't know what she was trying to do but she mangles it badly. I could not recognises any of the accents she was trying to do (and they were only French, Scottish and Russian, pretty standard accents).
If you have read the books before, as I had, you can go with the flow to some extent but absolutely do not get these if you haven't already read the story, it will put you right off the books before the end of the first chapter. In any event you will find yourself banging you head against the wall at how she mangles simple things.
I prefer audio
All of them
They are all good
A must for your audio library
I've just finished this audio book and I have one question...When are the others coming out on audible? The story is definitly worth the hype it has been getting.
