Didn't read print version.
This is not my usual sort of book, so I can't really compare it to others I've read.
He has a very engaging voice. A little bit of accent and a nice mellow flow of speaking.
I think Gabby. She has a deep down earthiness that I liked.
I watched the Notebook and cried my eyes out ( I have no idea why this is a good thing). I thought I'd try more of Nicholas Sparks work and since I listen to a lot of books, this was the way to go. Again, I cried through parts of it, not knowing for sure how it would end. Glad I wasn't listening at work :) I really enjoyed all of this book and went back and bought four more of his books. Well worth the credit.
Yes, because I like happily ever afters.
I think it's Jesse. He had such a bad break but is not bitter and is so grateful for getting his love.
When Jesse and Flynn had their baby, Grace.
Not only was, but I did.
This is an enjoyable , uplifting book. It is nice to listen to books that are not extremely graphic and have a nice ending.
I probably would when the rest of the series comes out just to refresh it in my mind.
I enjoy the concept of the whole good vs. evil story line and a group of friends working together.
To me, the characters sounded much older than what I imagine they are. Also , she over dramatizes nearly everything. I had a difficult time trying to get past that to enjoy the story.
Read the book!
I've waited months for this book to come out since I listened to so many of Nora Roberts books. I've liked most of them enough to listen to repeatedly. I think the narration spoiled much of the story, so I may just get the book and read it to see if that helps.
Community of friends
Virgin River. It very much about friendships and hardships. Community comes together to help each other. It's very similar to the work of Robyn Carr and Emily March's Eternity Springs series.
Just the other books in this series. I like her work very much. Doesn't make me want to tune her out or wish for another narrator.
Some of both. I have a lot of empathy for what life can deal to people that must be overcome. Books can take a person away from some of their own problems for awhile and give you breathing room to deal with whatever you have to get through.
I think not. Couldn't stay interested enough to keep focused.
Very little inflection and not any difference in voices.
A different narrator would have helped. Just couldn't get into the book since there was nothing to keep my attention. I'll try the written version since I really like Lori Wilde's books.
Bad books are almost always because the narrator just wasn't right for the book. I think that's mostly the case here.
I enjoyed the interaction between all the characters. The story line is very interesting and kept me listening.
I think Nora Roberts Sanctuary. It has similar suspense and character dynamics that keep it interesting.
I would prefer not. There just wasn't any emotion. I couldn't tell the difference in many of the characters and there were many times that a sentence blended with the next one so it was hard to make sense of what was being said.
It may have been with someone else reading.
I have many Nora Roberts (as well as many other authors) and even if you have a strong story, if the narrator doesn't do a good job, it detracts considerably from the book.
I have many audiobooks and this rates mid way through all of them.
I enjoy the connection of a group of women and their friendship over time.
I would prefer not to. I have all the books in this series , so I've listened to more of her than I care for. I can usually blank out the narrator if necessary and just go with the story, but I found myself thinking "This is really awful". She's okay when just reading but lousy at the voices.
I have this series in ebook format but wanted to be able to listen to the series while doing other things. I did not like this narrator nor the one in the previous book. It certainly detracts from the listening experience.
I have many books by Sherryl Woods and just purchased another one. No problem with her work.
Lack of differences in voices. Not very good character voices.
Since I have the whole series, I know there are other books that tie in to this.
I really get sick of the whole theme of men cheating on "the love of their lives". I'm sorry, but if you really do love someone , you can't justify having so little respect for that person that it's alright to do that. Just to be completely fair, I also don't think too much of the female cheating on the male.
Once again, it wasn't the book itself that was bad, it was the narrator. If you can get over that, it's worth listening to. I have read this series of books several times and wanted to be able to listen to it while I work. The first book in the series (The Last Enemy) had a much better narrator and was very enjoyable.
Most of the books I've purchased have had pretty good narrators. A few have had really bad narrators. This is one of those.
Horrible voices. Can't really explain how awful it is , but if I hadn't read the book and listened to the first one , I wouldn't have finished it.
Story was great. Good author. Would buy other books by this author, but not with this narrator.
Can't decide. Really didn't like the male lead at all. He seemed to be a self-centered arrogant *******. I like the basic plot but it's hard to get into a story where it's as easy to detest the supposed hero as the villain. And I'd like to shake the female and ask where her pride is.
I've listened to several of her books, which is why I got this one. I don't know that I will listen to this one again.
I like his performance as the males. I think it is difficult to have a man do a woman's voice without it sounding simpering or unintelligent.
Would rather not. And if it was , certainly not with the "stars" there are to choose from today.
Most of Diana Palmer's book have quite a bit of political leanings in them. I could do without the whole green, immigration and class soapboxes. I like the stories enough to buy quite a few books, but they would be just as enjoyable without some elements.
