Not sure what happened with the person that said the narration was poor. This book is read in her typical fashion - excellent!
Elizabeth Peters spends more time on the characters and their interactions. I thoroughly enjoyed this book!
Only got a few minuted into it and had to turn it off. For those of you that do not appreciate hearing the F word and other similar words - this book is not for you.
The narrator does a great job.
I really wish that there was some kind of rating system for books!
Expand his vocabulary and not use foul language
This is a great mystery - clean and funny with an entertaining heroine and hero. What makes this book come to life is the narrator. Barbara Rosenblat is simply amazing! Her intonations and different voices for each character make this book easy to follow and picture clearly in my head.
I have listened to Ms. Rosenblat narrate many books, and have come to the conclusion to listen to anything she narrates - because she will make it thoroughly entertaining!
I have to admit that I am spoiled by Tony Britton's excellent narration. Fiacre Douglas does not distinguish between the voices well, if at all. There are times when he sounds like he is reading the book for the 1000th time and is completely bored. Once you get past the narration and figure out how to keep track of who is speaking, it is a typical Dick Francis novel - which I love.
This is just a story about 2 spies and some of their life as spies. It is interesting from the point of how spies travel and move around, that is about it.
The worst part is the authors read the story. I thought that the authors would have some interest, but they sound like they are reading their shopping list. It is hard to keep track of what is going on through the continuous monotone voices droning on and on....
I LOVE the Pern books! So much that I did not read the reviews before purchasing this book. I wish I had....
I started to listen to this one, not realizing that it was the second (or third?) in a series. The description of the plot is confusing on Audible. (I figured out what was wrong when I read the description on Amazon.) SInce it started off with a synopsis of what had happened, I thought I would give it a listen. I gave up after 20 minutes.
Todd has not developed his mother's skill at story telling. It is Todd's little excursion into "Gee, what would happen if I went back in time, then forward, then maybe back and see myself?"
The established laws of time travel by dragons is not followed. I have never given up on a book so quickly. Don't waste your money!
This is great for those who want to know how it all started. MacRae is not a good narrator, though. It was very difficult to follow her as she read - she runs the sentences together so it is hard to tell when there is a new sentence starting. I only stuck with it to know the history.
I have the new testament in audio form on cassettes and listen to that every morning while I get dressed. It is dramatized, which is great as each person has a different voice making it easier to follow.
This version is similar, but the background music can be loud and distracting. I have only been listening to Genesis, and I keep thinking the heavens are going to open and the angels will all be singing "AAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaa".
It is nice to have in the car while driving and I am working on getting over the music.
A mystery told from the perspective of a dog? Perfect! Jim Frangione has all the intonations and musings of a dog's mind down pat! This is a fun book. There is some bad language, not much, but the f-word is in here with some others. I am getting the rest of the series - Chet's thought processes are priceless!
