I love her writing and although this is not one of my favorites, without a doubt I will download the next one. I believe one of the issues may be with the narrator. Firstly, I don't know if was the production or the narrator but he talks way too fast. Also, J.R. Ward has a lot of sarcasm in her writing, with interesting, sayings which I absolutely love. Unlike Jim Frangione who narrates the Black Dagger books, this narrator misses the point and skips over a lot of the sarcasm meant to explain the character. Jim Francione gets J.R. Ward. If you think the angels in this novel are angelic, do not read. These angels curse, swear and are truly not what you've usually read or heard about guardian angels. J.R. Ward breaks a lot of angelic philosophical rules.
This is one of the best series I have read in a long time.....J.R. Ward really knows how to draw out the supsense!!
I usually enjoy J.R. Wards books, both the BDB series and the Angel series. This book just misses the mark. The characters that were so good in the previous books, lack depth and interest. I love Eric Dove's work, but I believe that the producers must have speeded up the recording because no one can read that fast and maintain clarity and diction.
The entire audiobook is just plain boring.
I wish I had read the reviews here before purchasing this one. My confidence in J R Ward's writing is justified, however the narration speed on this audio is devastating. I had to resort to a library hard-copy to enjoy Rapture.
Narration is so fast, I don't think I will get thru it. Not enjoyable and difficult to follow. May need to read this one on my Kindle.
I really enjoyed this book. Great characters and a nice twist at the end. Can't wait to read the next one. Really interested to see where Jim and Devina go from here.
Huge fan of J.R Ward and Sylvia Day!
I love the series!
Jim is always my favorite :)
I can picture Jim talking with Eric Dove's voice. I don't think I can do without.
I really did want to listen to it all at once but unfortunately I need to sleep too
It seemed like if they fast forward Eric Dove and made him talk fast like he was in a hurry. I have always loved the way he narrates but it seemed like he was in a rush. I constantly had to rewind in order to understand what was going on. I hope they slowed him down for book 5.
I held off from buying this book for a couple of months due to the myriad comments on the narration speed. While I agree with all of them -- the speed IS too fast -- it didn't stop me from following (or enjoying) the story. I sure hope they fix this going forward.
Eric Dove isn't one of my favorite narrators, but he does an ok job with this series. I wish he could find a little more range with the characters -- they all sounds exactly the same to me. So much so that during some of the dialogue, I couldn't tell who was speaking.
That aside, I've truly enjoyed this series and will be back for Book 5 when it's available!
J.R. Ward's Fallen Angels series is very good. I expected it to be funnier after reading The Blackdagger Brotherhood, where the angel is hilarious.
The story is read in hi-speed or something. Trying to comprehend what is being said and they're off to a different chapter.
