I love Nora Roberts but I coan not stand this narrator. I will read the book.
I listen to books at work, but this one, due to the narration, kept me on edge, but not in a good way. I've read the book, so I know the story, but only to chapter 2 and I dont know if I can keep up with this narrator. She makes Sorrca sound like an old woman; I know she is sick, but...I havent looked to see if she narrates the others, but if she does, I might have to pass on the rest.
Say something about yourself!
Both the story and the narration. I almost didn't buy it, and am glad I didn't listen to the reviews about the bad narrator. I LOVED the passion and intensity in the narration, and don't believe it would be as completely 'felt' without it. It was magic.
The strength, thoroughly thought out plot and depth that seems to be in every Nora Roberts book I listen to.
All. It wasn't her different character tones that got me though, it was the thorough emotional journey her narration took me on. I was really affected.
Not particularly, I loved the entire thing from start to finish.
I am looking forward to experiencing book number 2 :) xo
THIS IS A GREAT BOOK ABOUT FANTASY AND WITCHES
MY FAVORITE CHARACTER IN THIS BOOK HAS TO BE CONNER FOR THE CARE HE TAKES OF HIS SISTER AND THE NEW FOUND COUSIN FROM THE STATES
I REALLY LIKE THE WAY SHE PORTAITED TEGANS GREAT GRANDAUGHTER
NOT ONLY DID I LISTEN TO IT ALL IN ONE SITTING IT KEPT ME AWAKE WHILE I WAS DRIVING
The book was great, but I would rather read it than listen to it again... The lady reading the book is seriously intense and basically screams through the entire book. I can't even count how many times it almost threw me into a mild panic. It was very over the top on the delivery of the book.
It reminded me a little of the Three Sisters Island series, but I loved it.
Anyone else! She was great with the characters, but the screaming... eeesh.
Yes.... with the exception of my blood pressure.
Great book. Love Nora Roberts. Crazy lady narrator.
didn't like it, thought it was boring. just not the kind of story for me I guess.
The story is not bad (not good either) but I could deal with it if the narrator had been better. A good narration can make or break a story.
Focus more on the magic elements and the conflict. Who cares about the romance!!
She was terrible!!!!
Will be returning this book. I could not even finish it. It was terrible!!!
Yes to Nora Roberts, no to Katherine Kellgren. It just happened that this is the second audio in a row I have listened to that she has narrated and her voice is so sharp and sounds so angry it takes me out of the story itself. The main character in this book sounded as if she was about to have a nervous breakdown most of the time. However, the other characters voices were wonderful so I am not sure what to say why the narration is so off putting, yet the dialog for all but the main character were fine.
Poorly. See above.
Yes. Check to see who the narrator was for the second book, which I had already purchased.
I was disappointed in the story somewhat. Once the awesome opening of the story was complete, setting up the story itself, It seemed to drag but that could be because I felt the narrator was reprimanding me for some reason and who wants that.
I will listen to this book again, right before #3 is released, I can't wait
Finding long lost family & one's place in the world, a timeless story
The scenes in the kitchen. Family, friends, food & fun, can't go wrong with that combo.
Use your power wisely
She never disappoints
My mistake. I lost interest in witches etc. This is probably great for someone else.
I'm thinking of God more lately.
Wrong choice for me. I appreciate the power and peace of God more and more as this world gets darker and more perverted. I used to like Halloween, now we are in a nightmare.
I bet this is a great story, I just don't have the patience to listen to it with the Irish accent.
I'm Irish myself. And I don't even like my accent.
