Highly entertaining book!
This is my first listen to KK, and I was very impressed. Sadly the rest of the series used other readers so I will not be buying those books in audible form. I have read other comments on how the different narrators did not measure up and I would rather not be disappointed as I was so entertained by this reading.
I can honestly say the story was great, but that I am not sure if it was great because of the narrator, or if it would have still been great without her. I suspect the narrator made this book.
Love to read as I drive; never leave home without. Love the Cousins O'Dwyer Books #1 - made me feel I was there. Narrator X-celent! Purrfekt
I certainly would recommend
The entire book, for me and my hubby, was the enchantment and the narrator who gave me a feeling I was there IN the story, looking on.
I cannot say; I've just begun to read this type book, it was NOT in my typical selections however, I am NOW a 'FAN'... especially if SHE is the one reading!
She brings life to the story
It made me want MORE... I live this life; I love this life - it's what I DO.
I was totally captivated. I want more with HER reading than any others as they would not do it justice.
I am a metaphysican- love the cadence and the realism and, Katherine's voice lent to the entire 'package'
Such a good read. The narration done with skill,energy, and passion. Absolutely enthralling and compelling.
The audio version enhances the story. I started the book intheaudio version but finished it in paperback. The storyteller portraying the characters in their native dialect - Irish is wonderful and brings the whole story to life.
All of them are wonderful from Branna, Connor, Meara, Boyle, Fin and Iona are my favorites.
Full bodied and true to characters.
There were several moments that were really moving.
I already have the rest of the trilogy and can't wait to finish them.
The beginning was based in old Ireland. Beautifully written, deep and intriguing. The kind of book you dream of curling up with on a wet, wintry day. Sadly, as soon as it switched to modern times, the story died a shallow death.
Too much teenage-like romance and obvious events. I guess this is common for Nora Roberts, but the audio preview and write-up promised so much more.
Shame, because I loved all except the main character. She was made out as a chatterbox. Her squeaky, depthless dialog spoiled what could have otherwise been a very enveloping story.
It started off really slow and a bit rambly. Once Iowna calmed down and the story took hold it was much better. I want to know what happens next so I guess I will put the next one in my wish list and wait for a sale!
Attention-grabbing, captivating, fascinating
My favorite character is Fin. He is fascinating, and intriguing. There are so many shadows and questions about his and Branna’s past. I can’t wait to read more about him.
She was very overpowering. She seemed to think everything was exciting enough to yell, in fact she spent most of the book yelling. It was very annoying to have every sentence slowly get louder until she was screaming. Then go back to a normal voice just to build up to a scream again.
When Fiona was fighting the wolf in the stables.
Other than the performance there is nothing I didn’t like about this book. It’s a wonderful story and I can’t wait to read the rest of the trilogy.
Thought the book was great and the narrator was great too! Hoping to love the next 2 books as much as this one.
