"Couldn't get past chapter 3 not knowing which was man talking or woman. Narration too fast to giddy didn't finish book"
Too not my kinda oif book. Can't understand the too fast narration and who's who. Typical trying to survive on an island stopped listening
I loved this book, me and my 3 friends all read it in a day.
It keeps you wanting to know their story and how it turns out.
She read it with no inflection in her voice. It was just like she was reading out of the book. No up's and down's when the story called for it.

Someone who reads a book just like their fav Author!
Not at all my all time favorite genre, love the low county feel!
Yes, I believe, giving it a little diversity might have changed my outlook on the book.
I don't think I would cut anything, I think wording would be different the book was too close to a famous author with the locality a fact it seemed as though the author was grabbing it and a lot of other people's thoughts and placing them Together just my opinion.
I definitely would recommend the book because it is a good love story, I look forward to future books by this author I just hope it's down a different path than this book took.
Yes, as other reviewers have pointed out, there are some unrealistic things about this story. I'll leave you to decide what things. But I don't think the author's intention was to write a survivalist novel. It's a romance and very heart warming. I enjoyed the development of the characters and the struggles they did face. I loved the story. I also loved the narrator's voice. One recommendation, as the narrator does not change her intonation for each character, just listen closely at the beginning of each chapter and you will know from who's point of view the story is being told. That solves the problem and then it is totally enjoyable.
I couldn't get past the narrator sounds like she was just trying to rush through story sometimes she doesn't even pause just one sentence to another. Sadly I didn't get far in this book might try to read it myself, just not sure if the story is worth paying for it though.
Narrator could have tried to pause, breathe, put life in story
I don't know didn't get to far.
I loved the story, I've been thinking about it for days since I finished listening. But I did not enjoy the narrator at all. I would listen to this book over and over again if it had a different narrator.
The story is a slow building love story with good descriptions but not overly done. The narrator Heidi Baker is what made me give a lower star rating. As other reviewers stated she only has one tone of voice and even when she states the new chapter and who's point of view it is there is no change in voice or tone which did make it hard to keep the 2 main characters apart when listening to this book. The only way to tell is wait for the he said or she said afterward of if you don't listen intently plan to use the back 30sec feature in the app a bunch. Great book written but either 2 narrators or someone that can do different toes or voices needs to narrate this book.
The narrator cannot do different character voices, so this would have been way better either read by someone else, or by a male/female combination. The narrator it pretty monotone, and reads very quickly and rambles on without putting the right pauses in her speech. She can't/won't do different voices, so many times it is hard to tell who is talking. The story itself could have been better, if it had more detail in the snapshots of their life over a period of 8-9 years. Things seemed to be rushed through or skipped over. It could have been a little more "romantically intense" too.
This is the only book in 15 years of listening that I listened to a second time. With so many wonderful books to choose from, I am always on to new experiences. This book is so uplifting and meaningful, and yet light and fun at the same time. I found myself yearning to go back to the island and experience the story of these characters all over again.
