reading with a coffee in my hands
No. Giving up before half way. Love Amy Lane but this narrator is making my brain hurt.
Not sure yet. Going to buy ePub to finish it.
Some emotion would be nice. Everyone had the same "voice" with not a trace of inflection or emotion. I couldn't tell when characters changed.
A good narrator
I think I said it all.
I love Amy Lane books. I actually have this book and bought in again in audio, just to have it handy. Wish there were more of her books in audible format.
This was an enjoyable, somewhat sweet, book. At first, the characters seemed somewhat flat, almost caricatures, but as the book continued, multiple layers of their personalities emerged. Robert Nieman did a good job, although there were a few odd gaps between words. This is a male-male romance, so there is some explicit sex, and those parts were read well. Sometimes the readers of explicit sex scenes seem to want to rush through them as quickly as possible without any emotion, but Mr. Nieman did not do that.
If you are looking for an easy MM romance, I recommend this one.
The story, the characters, the narrator.
I don't know...
I like the name it has.
Amy Lane - No, Robert Nieman - Maybe.
I don't know why I bother, after reading three of her books I decided that as much as I like the stories she writes, I cannot stand her dialogue. Her characters are always ranting on about stupid things, or irrelevant things that bear no point to the plot. In this story, the dialogue is too exaggerated for me. Really, why did the dialogues have to contain so much aggression, and then go into off parts with no bearing on the present. I wish she would try to anchor her dialogue in the scene, and make her characters more mature.
I don't think the narration could have saved this book for me.
None, I would just cut the dialogue.
Not really, just need to stop buying anything by Amy Lane.
I'm more or less certain that I will be listening to Clear Water again. I think that the story is sweet, I like the characters, and I thought that the reader was a good fit for this particular book.
I particularly liked the way that Whiskey was so understanding and patient with Patrick's mental health struggles.
Robert Nieman's reading was on point in my opinion. I find that there are some readers who are a little cheesy in their readings and that the try to pull off different voices for characters and it doesn't really work out that well. Robert Nieman didn't try to do voices and he didn't do over the top sex scene moans. I liked the tone of his voice throughout his reading and I felt like he spoke the way that someone in real life would. His reading was still vibrant though and he treated the characters with respect and gentleness.
I thought that the reader was able to express the characters feelings for one another well and I found that to be moving.
I'm Married 25 years with 5 sons. I love romance anything to do with love, love and more love. I am officially a audible junkie :)
Yes, it's a funny, sweet, loving feel good book
Whiskey, he's sexy
I found myself laughing out loud sometimes I really enjoyed this book, its one of my favorites
Yes, I love to listen to Robert Nieman's voice narrating audio books.
He brings out the characters in the story
Unfortunately print version is better. Narrator does not read individual characters with any consistently discernable difference.
Definitely Patrick, his character grows during the course of the book.
Not a lot of inflection, every character sounds the same, uninspiring.
Listen to Sean Crisden read Amy Lane's Keeping Promise Rock for the full impact of Lane's writing read by an outstanding narrator. Clear Water is one of my favorite Ann Lane books and it is disappointing to not hear it read by a better narrator.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I didn't even finish this... Narration was bad, but the story seem kinda done before. I usually like all of Amy Lane's stories...but I think because the narration was so bad, I couldn't get a grip of the story... Which totally sucks... :( Boo!
