The book is really entertaining but made more so by the narrator. I always enjoy listening to Anne Flosnik.
I've read most of the stories so far in this series, or so I had thought. I had no idea who most of these people were in this story and I can't believe anyone would find it interesting and fun to drag on through a boring series of women in labor. Waste of time and a credit. Most certainly.
I think that there should definitely be something in the marketing that lets you know that a book is written in multiple parts and you have to buy each one individually. This trend is ridiculous. I feel completely ripped off because now I either do not listen to the whole story or pay 3 times as much as I thought because I now know it is in 3 parts - or I guess it could be more and they just haven't published all of the parts. Really?
I am really tired of publishing companies and authors writing a novel and splitting it into two or three parts to sell for more $. Just charge more for it to begin with and provide the whole story. Really people! I feel ripped off. It just ends with the biggest cliff hanger. Seems like Fifty Shades started this trend it is getting worse all the time.
It's hard to tell if the story would be better because the narrator had a cadence of reading 3 or 4 words at a time and dragging out the 4th word to be longer the 2 syllables. No one talks like this so why did she read like this. The male voices were more feminine than the female voices but the worst part was the cadence. It's like really fast 'talking about' then really long childrennnnnnnnnn. It's awful. I would think that the good folks at audible would actually listen to their narrators before publishing a book and charging people for it. Very disappointing.
I was looking forward to this last story in the series but the narrator makes it very difficult to listen to. She sounds sort of whiney and Garth's voice is pretty high pitched. Talk about emasculating the hero. The cadence was difficult to get through as well. She sort of pauses after every 3 or 4 words. Who talks like that? As you can tell, the most of what I recall is about the narrator and not the story. I quit listening after about two hours and have purchased it from Barnes & Noble to read it instead.
The cadence and pitch was so hard to listen to that after about 2 hours I gave up and quite listening. I think it could have been a good story but I just couldn't listen any longer. Really, who pauses after every 3 or 4 words?
The narrator ruins this. She starts in on the southern accents slurring the words and sentencing and speaking them so fast that I often had to rewind and replay to figure out what she was saying. That was awful. Very distracting.
I had a hard time getting through the story because the narration is just boring, flat, no real emotion. It's a good book to listen to if you want to go to sleep. It just drones on and on. I didn't finish it.
I found that I drifted off from the story occasionally as it moved a little slow. It didn't seem like I missed much in doing so though. The story was pleasant and sort of cute with the ghost.
Moved a little slow for me. It was a pleasant story but I just drifted away from time to time.
