I was very disappointed in this book. I loved the Jane Yellowrock series and was hoping to enjoy another series by Faith Hunter but this book had none of the passion or excitement the other series did. The narrator was pretty close to being monotone and made it difficult to keep my attention on the story. About half way through the book I finally gave up and quit listening. If this story interests you then I suggest reading the book rather than listening to this audio book.
I have no idea if the story is any good or not because the narration was so bad that I couldn't listen to the book for more than ten minutes before I had to stop. The narrator spoke so slowly that it was difficult to pay attention to what he was actually saying rather than how he was saying it. I also own the kindle version of this book so I will give the author a chance and read the book.
I decided to take a chance on the book based on the title and description of the book. I wasn't sure what to think of the book before I read it, but it didn't take long before I couldn't stop listening. It's the kind of book that can make you laugh and cry (at least it was for me). Because the story is told by the main character dictating the story into a series of cassette tapes, it's much much better as an audio book. The narrator, Laura Hicks, was the perfect choice to tell the story of Garnet Ferrari. The author did an excellent job of developing the characters through each story told in the book. It was a unique and refreshing read.
Promising new series.
I think she was a great choice for the main character Matilda. She spoke the characters very well and gave life to the story. I think this book is actually better as an audio book because of the narrator.
I didn't want to take breaks from listening. The story contained enough unexpected twists and turns to keep it continually interesting. I hope I get to listen to the next book in the series soon.
I loved listening to this book. The narrator did a great job with the characters and the story moved quickly so there weren't any places in the book where my attention started to drift.
I loved this book but I wish Audible had all of the other books in the series.
I love the fast pace of the story. Never a dull moment and easy to keep paying attention to the story for long periods of time.
I liked Jill be because she is strong but flawed. She is a hero but not a perfect person and it's easy to sympathize with her character.
Joyce Bean is one of the worst narrators I have ever listened to and it's a shame that she has ruined otherwise good books with her voice and over pronunciation of words. When I purchased this book I didn't think to check to see who the narrator was. If I had known it was JB then I would have just read the book instead of listened to it. She is the reason I didn't give this book a 5 star rating.
