Well, I tend to compare everything to Outlander, but it does rank high. I am sure I will see the movie. I have recommended this book to friends.
The intensity of the emotion the characters had in the story. The struggle with wanting to make things right after finding out the truth.
yes, but not able to. Found myself taking the long way home so I could listen while driving.
It was a riveting story, and I look forward to seeing the movie.
The narrator had a habit of dropping his voice - almost to a whisper, at the end of nearly every sentence. This made listening to the book very difficult. When in the car, I had to turn the volume up extremely loud just to catch the end of the sentences. I've never had this experience before with an Audible book, and it was very annoying.
This book sounds like it would be a pleasure if only you could understand the narrator. It's not the Aussie accent that is the problem, it's the lisp and the mumbling combined with an accent that makes this book terribly hard to understand.
Horrible narrator. The story is amazing and the narration truly took away from it. Incredibly hard to understand without out blasting the volume. Lots of mumbling. Would read this one ten times before listening to it.
Great story that kept my interest to the end. Not sure what's with all the negativity about the narrator. It's an Australian accent because it's set in Australia. Perfect!
I really enjoyed this book, but the ending seemed dull. The imagery of the lighthouse, the love story, the child...all exciting. But toward the end it was very predictable and I thought there could have been a little more suspense. The reader's voice was delightful
The book plot was very well written; unique story with good character development. Unfortunately the narration was extremely flawed. The narrator would trail off in volume nearly after each sentence. This made it quite difficult to understand while in the car listening to the book. Many nuances were lost due to this.
