A writer..in my opinion...should NEVER narrate their own book. They OVER due the reading. Their emotions over their writing and the story are too high and it over exaggerates the way they narrate.
NO ONE can tell a story like Jodi Picoult. The narration is unbelievable. Perfectly fits the image she wants to portray I imagine. I do not know how a person can read when the narrators bring a story to life. I was a little nervous about this one...not being a fan of history or period pieces but as I said....Jodi just brings it to life.
I could not get passed the bad narrating to listen to the book. Deleted it.
I could not follow this book. Not sure if it was the naration or the way it was written but it seemed very confusing so I gave up. Pity since I adore Scott Brick and have listened to many in this series.
Thinking the narration is making it impossible to listen to. Sound quality is awful. Thanks but no thanks.
If the narration is as an important to you as it is to me do not bother downloading this book to listen to. Buy it for a Kindle or whatever you may use for reading. My Grandchildren could have done a better job then the narrator is doing on this book. I am very disappointed.
I usually love long books and love listenting to Scott narate but this was awful. I did not even start part 3. By then I was hopelessly bored.
As always Jodi Picoult writes an amazing tale. A story that covers all sides and sends the "if it were me" thoughts into a tailspin. In doing this she always makes me see, that what I THINK is plain as day...can have many shades of gray. Thanks again Jodi for another amazing story.
All Cornwells books are great but this narrator HAS to go. She makes all the characters I know and love sound like total idiots. Very disappointing
