Only if she doesn't try to do an accent. Her southern accent was bad as well as her french accent. The southern accent was too many types of southern accents rolled into one.
Yes! In spite of the narrator I wanted to keep listening to find out how the series ends.
All the women seem to have Irish accents, even if they aren't part of the McKenzie clan. His mispronunciation of words drives me batty, specifically ration.
I enjoyed seeing how people might potentially cope after such a world changing event. There are so many possibilities and I like hearing this author's take on the potential chaos and coping.I am on the sixth book of the series now, and must say I really liked the first three books. I kind of wish I had just left it after the third. Be warned, if you are just starting this series the books later on start to drag and get repetitive with lots of religion, piety, and self righteousness. So, if you do listen to this, you might consider jumping ship after the third book as is starts to get a bit preachy after that.
I am getting bored listening to tactics, feasts, battles, and confessions. It's becoming very heavy with religious overtones. At first it was just a hit of religious undertones at the start, but it is now full of piety and self righteousness. Just get on with the the quest, please! I'll admit I'm writing this before I'm even done listening, but I'm halfway through and having a hard time keeping interest. My husband is going to do a search to see if he can find a summary of the last three books so I don't have to listen to them to find out how it ends. I've invested this much time in a series, so I'd at least like to know how it ends. I'm not sure I can suffer through 3 more books.It's almost like the author was just dragging it out so he could pump out some more books. I'm pretty sure there is some fat in this series that could have been cut and still not lose important information.Oh, and the repetitive telling of histories from the previous books is pointless. If I'm this far in the series, there is almost no chance that I've not read the previous ones. If I hear an explanation of what CORA stands for one more time I think I might just implode.
Boredom, annoyance, and disappointment.
I'm surprised others like this narrator. His accents drive me batty. At the start almost all women, McKenzie or not, sound Irish. His African American men all sound the same. His Midwestern is like nails on a chalkboard to me. In the previous book, where Engulf is introduced, Engulf doesn't have a Midwestern accent. Suddenly, about a quarter into this book, he has a Midwestern accent that makes him sound like a wimp, even then he has it inconsistently. The one guy from Wisconsin that is supposed to be a Native American in this book sounds like he might be from Jamaica. And, his mispronunciation of words is terrible. Is there not someone managing this guy while he reads the story?
