It tore my heart out.. outstanding read if you like writing in this period,, Which I love.
I liked them all,, even the villain ..
Davina Porter does an outstanding job, with male and female voices.
I feel "listen" to books is different from reading books. I like both. Depends on my mood and eyes. :-)
Numerous moments, but the end tore me up... Not sure if I can handle another Thomas Hardy book .. great writer .keeps you in suspense.
No, you should not list this book. It has multiple errors on the narrators behalf in it and in one spot the narrator repeats at least three times before she feels she get's it correct and she even laughs at herself. I have listen over one hundred books and I have never heard anything like it. I think there was an error in posting it for distribution.
Yes I already have, this has been my least favorite but I do believe it was the delivery of the book by the narrator.
Jane's voice was fine but the errors in her reading where the most I have ever heard in any audible book. It makes one think that this particular book was not proofed "listened" to or they never would have posted it for sale. As said above, It has multiple errors on the narrators behalf in it and in one spot the narrator repeats at least three times before she feels she get's it correct and she even laughs at herself, I understand this but it should have been removed before posting. I have listen to over one hundred books and I have never heard anything like it. I think there was an error in posting it for distribution. One has to laugh!
I listened to the Triology, I did not read the print version.
I have not read any romance books let alone erotic fiction so I can't compare.
Absolutely, it broke my heart.. and I held my breath most of the Triology praying Christian would not slip back into S & M. That he could allow himself to find healing and to be loved.
To me it is a wonderful love story about a broken, tortured young man that found real love for the first time and this love begins to heal him. And it is about a young woman that fell in love for the first time and the person she loves happens to be very broken. It shows her committment and fortitude to this person and shows how she refuses to give up on their relationship and how she is determined to make it work. Her attitude of stickto-itiveness is a lost art. I feel that the story shows that they are walking through their pain and darkness together into the light of a loving, trusting relationship. I have never read/listened to heavy romance novels, let alone an Erotic Fiction book before, but I am a child of the sixties so I was not ignorant of this world ; but knowledge and expertise are two different things, so I blushed a number of times needless to say, but then again, I also blushed (died) in the movie "The Graduate" when it first came out! Therefore there were too many sex scenes for me, but if you are into this kind of reading for the sex you should enjoy it. I did not consider this hard core S and M, or what I understood S and M to be. I would not recomend this reading for the young and the innocent.. TMI!! :-) Good luck in your read.
