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.
Reading is a must-have ESCAPE...
The story centers on the character of Methias which we met in Crave, Book 2. The story sets up well but feels like it drags on a bit. Methias' non-feeling, cold-hearted, callous nature is given a second chance and Mels inspires him to be different. The fallen angels of Jim and Adrian seem to be coming to grips with the loss of Eddie (the third of the Trio from earlier installments) and try to find their way in the divine challenge against evil.
It is a nice story, but not as exciting as the earlier series installments. Even the effort to offer a cliff-hanger at the end doesn't leave you wanting for Book 5 to be available already.
Eric Dove does a great job overall in narrating. He is fairly consistent throughout the series in distinguishing between characters.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
I love JR Ward and this series did not let me down. I love the storyline and if your a fan I think you'll like these too.
I disagree with a lot of the reviewers the speed was fine, I think it set the pace better for the story. Our characters are all on a mission and time is indeed a factor in it. Jim and Devina are well matched during the series. She seems more powerful but Jim sure can throw a wrench in her plans. Mathias the fu___ as Jim refers to him is priceless as our tortured soul, he's a man of action and jumps in fine. Mels our female character is great and a reporter which again explains the fast talking of the book. We have to give it to Ad he does continue to step up and act out in his special way. As usual I love how we see the crossover of characters from Black Dagger Brothers pass by in this book and hope readers noticed the property where Jim, Ad and "dog" have made their new home.
