I would rather have read this book on my own than listen to her narration.
Ari sounds tired ALL THE TIME!
I can understand Tracker's low voice, but there is no feeling in Ari's voice that shows any personality that I know she has.
I'm so disappointed.
Take my advice. Buy the book and read it yourself.
Watching Lexi grow into herself. It reminds me a little of 13 going on 30, for a more widely known reference.
After this audiobook, I also download Undomestic Goddess, another of Sophie Kinsella's book. This author is pretty awesome!
YES! Laughed so many times.
A worth while addition to a number of Sophie Kinsella books I have in my library. Rosalyn Landor did a great job with it. Another voice for these stand alone books. I love that Sophie's books have these smart, strong female characters. They are funny, quirky, and yet push against the definition of femininity. In this story, our heroine is a lawyer, and one smart one at that.
I really enjoyed listening to the book, and this is one book I will never feel like reading on my own because the narrator does such a good job at it.
Oh, definitely yes! I have been listening on my audible app and my mom's even hooked. Can't deny this is a funny book and the narrator is the best!
The distinction between her british characters and american characters were exact. And I loved how she narrated both Emma and Jack. Oh, Jack's voice was thick and attractive!
I wouldn't even both reading the book on my own. Nothing make it better than listening to Kate Reading. She has the best voice! Aside from Nadia May, I think Kate Reading is my favorite narrator!
The innocence in the children's relationships, and the garden's beauty and it's magics.
My favorite character has always been Dickon.
I love everything about this audio-book except when I ordered it, I didn't pay much attention and didn't realize it was the abridged version! I love this narrator, but I have yet to find her narrating the unabridged version yet. If I do find her, her version would definitely be the one I buy.
This was one of the cases where I watched the movie before I read the book. And man, it was such a depressing read! I spend the rest of that week feeling so down. But once I had some distance from it, I can appreciate the beauty of the story. The struggle of wanting to save one child and giving birth to another to do so. Is that second child a means to the end or do you try to protect her too?
The performance was great. And the writing left Jodi Picoult on my list of worth reading authors. When you are in the mood to pounder on something heavy.
Listening to all the character's personalities comes to life by Zoe Winslow's masterful voice. Even now, when I read the book on its own, I still hear her interpretation of the characters in my head.
The strength in Desi and the patient love in Caine. All the characters were lovable, and watching Desi slowly trust a man again, trust that she had hope for the future, and fall in love with her strong, supportive, and protective husband was great! Not to mention the erotic parts are HOT!
It's a book to be savored, but if I had a day all to myself, I wouldn't mind.
Sarah McCarty is a under-rated author meanly because she's shy around technology. Her books would be more wildly read if more people knew about it. The Hell's Eight was my first series by her, and I devoured each and every book that's currently in the series. Then I went and devoured all the rest of her books. She writes many of the best western heroes I have had the pleasure of reading. An author not to be missed.
I love Jane Austen. Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion, and Sense and Sensibility, are great books to read. However, Fanny, the main character in Mansfield Park is less engaging than all the other characters in the 3 previous books mentioned. She would be someone less sure of herself, and I believe people can some times relate however.
This is one of my favorite stories by Jane Austen. And to have it read by one of my fav narrator is so wonderful!
Her voice does need a bit of get use to. But her abilities to make each characters come to life, and do it so well, well, that's priceless!
My first read by this narrator was for Pride and Prejudice. Her enactment of Mrs. Bennett was the best I have heard from any Jane Austen readers.
I <3 Nadia May~!
