I think the story is great. Its just that the high pitched voice, and character voices not being separated enough make it very hard to listen to.
Too high and annoying voice pitch for the main character that didn't change enough to distinguish characters, unless it was a male, and the same with them. All girls the same, all guys the same.
I believe that if there was another narrator, this book would have many listeners.
I think it has a great story line. But you would almost have to be reading the book along with it to follow.
Please understand that I believe that narration must be hard and I don't know if I could have done better myself? I am not quick to run and pass judgement or to write negative comments. I feel bad for the writer, I believe the audio version does not do her writing justice.
I always love Kim Harrison's stories. She brings personalities to life in a way that brings you into the world she has created.
Bringing a new narrator into the middle of a series is never a great idea. I almost did not purchase it, because of someones remark that she had ruined it.
I think that the narrator tried to do her best. But if she had listened to the previous narrator in at least one book or even half of it, she would not have pronounced the words incorrectly. I really tried to consign myself to it. But some of the words that are pronounced wrong are just plain unnecessary. It was annoying. Also when she did Jinx's voice, it was ear piercing.
I believe in another circumstance she is a great narrator. Just not in the middle of another's work.
I would not skip this one as it is a good as the past editions, but I would like people to expect the issues, rather than being surprised.
A different Narrator
I love the story and a new spin to popular fiction themes
I never like to leave negative comments, I believe if you have nothing to say do not say it at all etc.While I was first listening to the story I was going to ask for a refund because the narrator has a very annoying, monotone voice and made the book almost impossible to listen to. I decided however to give it more of a chance. The story did grab me in after listening to it for a while and I believe it would be more exciting with a different narrator. Even when she tries to do different characters it just gets more high pitched, piercing and annoying in sound. I am wondering if this is her first time narrating? I am reluctant to listen to the next installment just because of her voice.
I really enjoy this trilogy. Very romantic and at times very explicit. The explicit part was unexpected but did not ruin the story. The collection seems separate from the others but at the same time refers and includes to past characters. After I read the first one it seemed as though they could not go forward with the story unless it was for the next generation. But the author had gone with another twist. Deferent but a nice change when listening to series.
I have really enjoyed the previous books in this series, but they have become way too predictable. Almost as if that changed the names and fit the rest around it. I did enjoy it, but alittle more changes in plots would help.
I find all the Carpathian novels hard to put down. I just wish they came out faster... (:
Amazing series, I can not wait for the next one to come out. Everyone is better than the last. Hard to put down.
I think that the story line has promise, but was hard to stay focused on the story. Maybe that it is the first in a series, they would get better? Not sure if I want to find out.
