I have found myself really enjoying romantic stories recently. This one was great. I listen on my commute (1 hour each way) and found myself looking forward to getting back in the car and back into the story. I cared about the characters and thought about them even after I'd finished the whole audio book. The acting/reading was excellent. (That's really important to me.) I would recommend this book highly to anyone who enjoys this genre.
Perhaps! It was so wonderful, I wouldn't ever be able to read it without hearing the actresses in my head.
I loved the accents and the expression. Every voice made the words come alive. I found myself using a southern accent a few times after listening to it on my commute.
First, Carolyn McCormick was a terrible choice for this book. I don't understand how anyone chose her. Her pacing and expression were slow and seemed forced. The few voices that she attempted were really over the top. I wanted to listen to the book since everyone has been talking about it. Her voice bothered me so much, I almost gave up and didn't listen to it. Luckily I pressed a button on my iPhone by accident and it started playing 2x the speed. It was still not great but at least better than before and I was able to finish the book. Second, I didn't love the story either, which surprised me, as I like this genre in general. I felt it was really contrived and the plot twists were really obvious. Also, I don't like stories where it revolves around one woman who is caught between two love interests (whether on TV, in books, or in movies) so perhaps that played a part as well.
Read with a regular tone of voice and used normal expression. She seemed to read each line separately. It was odd.
I couldn't stand her reading of this book. It was distracting the entire time I listened to it.
None. I'm a full edition kind of person.
