I had a hard time listening to the reader. A bit in your face. Also, while the story line was good, there were abrupt changes that lost me for a while and no real character development. While I enjoy good action adventure I like to get to know the players a little more.
I might try another book by this author if it had a different reader.
I thought he was too abrupt, too strong a voice. It might have been what was required by the tone the author wished to create, but I found it unpleasant and I was easily distracted from the story.
I liked the idea of the story, but because I was so distracted while listening to the reader's voice, I often lost the thread.
Yes. I plan to listen to Oak Wise again and again, to really absorb the parts I heard, to hear the parts I missed, to review in light of changing perspective.
I did listen in all one sitting, but I thought in future I would go back and listen to one section at a time and absorb.
I felt like the author was speaking for me, like she was articulating all the experiences of my own life, like she had gone into my own heart and put my own understandings into words. To me that speaks of truth.
