I found The Kitchen House difficult to listen to, although compelling, but I don't quite understand the comparisons to The Help. The books are entirely different. The Kitchen House is set during slavery, and it is hard to listen to characters you have come to love being subjected to horrible acts of violence, and the total absence of human decency. Having said that - I did complete the book and was happy at the ending. While The Help was about fighting back against racial inequality, The Kitchen House is about surviving during slavery. Good story, great characters, but not even on the same planet.
I bought this title on a special 2 for 1 offering by audible, not really understanding that it was a YA book. After listening to it for awhile, I became interested in the main characters and invested in what happened to them, especially Evie. When I finished listening to Inescapable, I immediately bought the next 2 titles and then the 4th as well. I also downloaded them to my spare iPod to share with my 13 yr old granddaughter, so we could listen to them together. Emily Woo Zeller is a fabulous narrator, there are so many voices and dialects in this series and you forget that it is only 1 person reading it!
Not predictable, there is really no way to know where it is going, especially by the time you get to book 4.
I LOVE this story and this author, and purchased the audio version because the story is so good. However this narrator just ruined the entire story for me. She spoke too fast most of the time, had very little emotion for the Rylee character, and her male voice, or at least her Colton voice, was a major turn-off. He just sounded sleazy.
I really hope there is a different narrator for Fueled, which is the next book in the 3 book series. Someone who can do a decent male voice and puts more feeling into the characters.
I loved the narration, especially Jonathan Cole's narration of Max Stella. As much as I enjoy reading print books as well, the story would not be the same without the sexy growl of Max's voice.
The narration was great, loved the story line, which was different, and really enjoyed the development of the characters and the continuation of the series.
I really enjoy this series. The narrator does a great job with the voices and they stay consistent from volume to volume. Even the mens' voices are consistent, so you immediately recognize who is "talking" before the narration tells you. Great characters, good story lines and steamy sex - who can ask for more?
Her voices are really good, especially the mens' voices - and they are consistent, so you can recognize each one immediately.
Compelling, thought-provoking, memorable
I love the
I disagree with the negative comments about Craig Wasson's narration, I felt he did an excellent job. I liked the different voices he used for the characters, and his performance really helped to make George/Jake a
Loved the ending, and could really feel Jake's pain.
Riveting - heartwrenching - true
Matterhorn - by Karl Marlantes, because it is based on truth, during wartime, it is riveting and sometimes, hard to believe
excellent narration - hard to believe it was only 1 narrator
It made me think, for days after listening to it.
I did not expect to enjoy this, since I don't do the
I love Lorelei King's narration!
I love Myron Bolitar, and Wynn, Esperanza and Big Cindy. These stories have captured and provided hours of entertainment for me. I know that all good things must come to an end, but I hate the thought of these wonderful, richly developed characters fading into oblivion.
none were portrayed as well as Jonathan Marosz, but adequate. Myron especially, took some time getting used to, but the others were fine.
I read the first volumes of the Earth's Children in print, and this was my first audio version, and I really enjoyed it. The narration was great, and I loved the detail, which I tended to skip over when reading the print version. Overall, a great story.
