YES! I would love to read this book, but fear I would lose on the accents necessary to truly get lost in this work. The transition from England English to Scottish to Irish and finally to Russian make this audible version better then print.
There isn't anything I have read before that can compare to the beauty of this book. The one bad comment of this audible reading (after having heard it) is truly from a person either to young to appreciate the novel, or from one who is unimaginative at best. Further it sounds like they read it vs. listened to the work and that they gave up upon the different versions of language accents.
I was sad at first that I was listening to an England version of english. And then I began to appreciate the accent. Further, she gives a true voice to each character and background. I have listened to a number of my favorite books, and never been so thankful for someone else's take on the characters.
This book takes you on a journey, and by the end I think that anyone would be incapable of holding back the tears that are sure to come. This is one of the finest piece's of literature that I have ever been so lucky as to come across. Please, just give it a chance and I promise you won't be disappointed. It is truly beautiful!
I love that with whisper sync I can go back and forth. In this case however, I found the reader to be a little to Valley Girl and naive. Normally, I love Becca Battoe, but on this series I just couldn't agree with the tone used.
The story is unexpected. I love a good romance, but this is not what I expected.
I love Nora Roberts for a reason. This book is wonderful and keeps you on your toes.
He is one of my all time favorite readers. I always know when it's him that im in for a good listen.
Yes. I had to stop to get some sleep but first thing the next day it was back on till the finish.
The audio was better then reading it. There's a tune that keeps playing in the book, and I was never able to do anything but read, but on audio when the tune starts before the words you get excited by what's about to come. The series is worth listening to versus reading.
It was seriously creative and was extremely visual. It is a little young, but it was fun to get lost in the story line.
