It was ok. Loved Graham but really did not care for Evalyne. I listened to this book on audiobook so not sure if the narrator influenced that. She just came off as unnecessarily deceitful and winey at times to me. Also it seemed Banks kept repeating the same thing over and over. By the 14th chapter I was ready to shoot myself if they mentioned (word for word the same) one more time how much the Montgomerys hated the Andersons. It did get better later on. I love Banks work and have a number of other Montgomery books in the queue so I hope they are better. This was not bad just not up to my expectations.
Yes, this was a well written and enjoyable story that really made you feel for the characters.
It is a story about an arranged marriage between two clans who hate each other and all the walls that must be broke down before she is accepted.
She brings emotion to the story with her voice and makes the story come alive.
No.....It was good to read in about three days.
I really enjoyed reading this book. I received this book for free from Audiobook Boom in exchange for a unbiased review.
This book made my day! There is no words to tell you how much I enjoyed it! Well written and the Narriator brought it to life. I did not stop until the end.
Tell us about yourself!
Great for a surface deep love story. Very disappointed to read a story about Scots that didn't even talk about how hot they look in their kilt! The narrator did a good job, pleasant sounding and did a decent job with the accents. As long as you're not looking for an intellectually stimulating book, I would recommend it!
I enjoyed the storyline about a deaf girl and the love that bloomed between the two main characters who were forced into marriage.
The storyline about dealing with deafness is in my opinion an interesting social study. It made the story much richer than just a titilating romance. The characters were clearly profiled as to how each one deal with defects in someone else against a backdrop of political intrigue, cultural norms and personal issues. Positively surprised!
