Have only had the audio edition
I love the characters and that the story was told in such a way that I felt like my heart was going to break each time the lead characters did.
The time's in the book where they had to part ways had my heart aching and almost moved me to tears...almost.
I seen a few reviews that commented on the lead female character and that she was weak. I agree that she was in the beginning. However I doubt very few people can say that at some point in their life they didn't look back at something they said or had done that wasn't weak or naive. Especially when it comes to love or trust.
I almost didn't buy this book due to those reviews but I am very glad I did. Great Story!
Moved my heart
The unexpected happens
First time I listened to Steve west
I had tears as she gave up..
I've read and owned a lot of books in my years - the story was okay but this female had to be the weakest idiot I've ever read about!!!
Tell us about yourself!
I absolutely love this book. Steve West has a wonderful way of executing the passion for the characters. I have heard it several times over the past couple of years. I don't know what is going on but haven't been able to listen to it through Audible. Always skips, freezes, unable to download. Disappointed. Normally, Audible's books are fantastic - have had trouble with a few books lately though.
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 :)
everything, i was so bored from the beginning and it did not get better, finally i gave up about halfway through. I love time travel books. I really wanted to like this one.
no not at all
The narrator was fine,
stupidity, it made me stupid just listening to it
It was very entertaining.
I did find myself listening more often.
It is a fun and heart rendering story.
Great story but the narration was very distracting.
As much as I loved the story I have to say that the performance was irritating. When the narrator was using his "normal voice" it was great...but when he he was supposed to be talking as Dougless (or any female) it was the most irritating and whiney sound I have ever heard. It was terribly distracting and it took a lot away a lot of my enjoyment. I just wish the narrators could always use their normal voices.
O Day of days when we can read! The reader and the book, either without the other is naught. Ralph Waldo Emerson. I Love to read, a great time for me is curling up with a great book!!!
I have to agree with some of the other reviewers. I read a lot of romance novels. Some weak, some strong and some not so bright, but this is the dumbest female in the history of romance novels.
Seriously!! I may have enjoyed this book better if i was not so annoyed with this chick
I concur with those who said, "this a must read". It's one of the best books I've listened to.
At first I wanted to shake "door-mat Douglas" for putting up with Robert--for her making excuses for his ill treatment of her...and I wanted to knock him on his you know what.
It was inexcusable when Robert and his ill tempered daughter left Douglas stranded at an old, rarely visited church in rural England with no money and no transportation, but that is when her adventure begins. An adventure that changes her life forever.
I think Steve West was the perfect choice for narrator. He does well portraying both men and women, and reads with such feeling. I laughed and cried as the story unfolded.
Although I'm not into time travel books, I highly recommend this one!
