I love Linda Howard, but it is PAINFUL to listen to this narrator!! I'm honestly angry right now because I can't even finish the first chapter because her voice is like nails on a chalkboard! Is she TRYING to sound like a nervous 90 year old lady???
don't know! can't finish!!
Somewhere at the top :) I am obsessed with anything pertaining to ACIM right now and have listened to many of Marianne Williamson's audios. I wanted to try someone new and I'm so glad I did!
When this guy starts talking my first thought was "Bueller? Bueller? Bueller? After a while it became "Hi! I'm Tom Bodet and we'll leave the light on for you!". For a while there I didn't know if I could listen and then I started getting his dry sense of humor and I began to love him! His kind of droning slow speech has totally grown on me and I love listening to him!
Love this book! Love this author! I will be looking for something else from him as soon as I finish this one!
The ONLY reason I took the time to write a review is because I can't stand the narrator. WHY does she have to sound like an air-headed valley girl??? even when she's doing some of the male voices! There is nothing more annoying to me!!
the main girl is really annoying. constantly asking dumb questions and seems naïve and slow.
yes. I usually like her stuff.
no. seriously annoying voices. WHY does she purposely pitch her voice all high and wobbly?? when she's just narrating it's ok, but all her "voices" are horrible!
it had potential, but there were too many loooooong boring slow places where the story seemed to take forever to progress. and just too many of those situations where you're rolling your eyes at the obviously dumb choices of the characters.
The narration and descriptions of the thought processes of the characters was PAINFULLY slow. It seemed to go on and on. It would say the same basic thing over and over again just saying it in a different way. It felt like I was listening forever and NOTHING had really happened! I love Linda Howard usually, but I could hardly get through this. I liked the basic idea of the story and it could have been good -but it could have/should have been told in a fraction of the time. It was as if she was just deliberately trying to make it longer or something.
The story seemed to be deliberately dragged out for some reason.
I had no problem with the narrator.
The story had potential but the issues I already stated ruined it.
Ok- Gray may be “sexy” but he’s a narrow minded, self-important ass! I can’t stand the family with all their self-centered entitlement issues. I can’t sympathize with their sad story at all. They’re cold and cruel and think the world revolves around them. I don’t feel bad for them and I freaking HATE Gray for buying into it enough to persecute an innocent person in a pathetic attempt to “protect” his horrible mother and sisters! I couldn’t listen anymore…
No. I usually enjoy them.
She was fine.
all but the main girl!
