I am so picky when it comes to audiobooks and narrators. This was a great story, it held my attention the whole time. I love this narrator! The only negative is that I felt like it was a little light on the romance.
Not really...it was hard listening to the characters monologue. The narration of the book was ok. It was just when she was speaking as the characters that made it bad.
This is my first Tracy Brogan book
The characters were unbelievable. It was hard to tell them apart.
Not sure, because of the narration it was a hard book to get into
I really did not know what to expect of this book and purchased it on a whim. I'm really glad I did. I loved it! Once I started listening I became obsessed with completing the book. The narrator was great and the stroy line kept me interested till the end. I love highland romance novels and I hope to see some more from this author.
Tried to ignore the reader's strident effort at the reproducing the characters' accents because the story was interesting at times. I could feel my throat clutching in response to her grasping and straining her way through this. Can't understand others' positive reviews for her performance. To my mind, this is someone who needs more training at being a reader or needs to find another field. I'll be returning this one.
The only reason why I struggled through this book, is because the story is really nice. The narrator has this habit of ending nearly each sentence on a higher note which makes her sound like she's in pain (or annoyed). Her accents are really excellent though. I wont purchase another book with the same narrator, but will with the same author.
another performer, who's every sentence wouldn't sound like she is going to cry. right now.
actually, i can't judge the story. I was not able to listen it.
i don't know, anyone. It's a "scottish" tale but does it really have to be spoken so?
Sarah Coomes, probably not.
In this book, her Scottish accent sounds more like she's constantly asking a question when she's actually making a statement. Like she's a Scottish valley girl, it's very annoying. She has a pleasant voice, though.
I haven't been able to finish the first part yet. The story is okay so far but I can't get past the narration.
I have read a lot of highland novels this one was great not predictable. This was definitely worth the credit.
This is one of the more intriguing books I have listened to
The revelations between the two families
The accents. At first it was annoying, but as the story went on I got used to it and it didn't bother me that much. It actually made the story more compelling and entertaining
The Scottish Hatfield and McCoys in an unforgettable battle
Not a fan of Scottish novels, wouldn't have read it otherwise. Was a good listen and the plot twists were surprising. If you can tolerate the accents, you should enjoy the story alot.
I am only partway through this audiobook but the narration has driven me to review early. I apologize that i have more to say about the narrator than the story. The story is good so far, nothing unique but im biased since this is my bread and butter genre. It takes a lot for me to dislike any type of highland romance. I don't care for how stubborn Fiona is. She's so angry at her husband when she has no choice in the matter. her attitude makes things worse for herself. She does eventually come around which is good and makes the story much more interesting.
The narrator is another story entirely. She does not do men's voices well and almost every sentence comes out like a question. It is annoying and is utterly destroying this experience. She is...I think the best way to describe it would be jerky. In some areas the emotion she tries to convey is completely wrong, and she occasionally gets shrill. In some places she over-articulates so much that you get distracted. It's like she's trying too hard. I don't know if I will ever listen to this or recommend it to anyone else because the narrator is...ugh. Her voice is very pretty, but the fact that every single sentence comes out as a question makes me want to pull my hair out. I can't get past that bit of annoyance. Not worth a credit, but if its on sale for less than 5 bucks just buy it if you can tolerate the constant annoyance.
