Would read another Connelly book, but not sure I'd like to listen to anything else narrated by Dick Hill. I like it when the narrator sounds like a real person rather than someone narrating a book. His delivery was way too dramatic for me.
I may have preferred to read this book rather than listen to it--that may have made it more enjoyable.
Much too dramatic a delivery. He sounded like he was reading rather than acting out the book. Not good with the voices either.
The story was boring. The descriptions were too long. When you got rid of all of the extras, the story could've been one page long.
I've read others and liked them, but after reading this one, I won't be buying any more.
I like listening to the way he does the dialect and continues on after the end of a sentence to include part of the next. He's excellent, and I would listen to others he narrates.
The narration was excellent.
The narrator couldn't have been better. She was able to give me the feeling of being right there. The story was also enlightening and also made me feel like I was living in that time.
When they were all living in poverty and the heroine was able to bring them out of it with her skills and determination not to be beaten down.
The softness with which she read the book. She seemed to immerse herself into the performance.
I would take the heroine to be able to talk to her about the admiration I have for her.
The book was outstanding and helped me to understand the culture and religion of the times.
No, I would not. It seems to have been written quickly to produce a new book
Added more character to the characters.
The narration was awful in the way the reader enunciated words, paragraphs, voices, the whole book. He sounded like he was reading rather than acting. Very poorly done.
Think about it before downloading another of Carl Hiaasen's books and to check on who is narrating if I do decide to buy it.
I was extremely disappointed in both the book and the narration. It was a sappy story which went on way too long. The narration was over-the-top dramatic. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
This book contained dialogue that normal people would not use. The title character was so wonderful it was unbelievable. It was trite.
This is one of the best books and narrations I have ever heard. I am amazed at the author's poetry and at the narrator's interpretation. They were the perfect blend.
