Yes - the style of narration is mumbled. The "acting" is not what I am used to from other writers. I have read many of Lorelei James books and enjoyed them but this is so garbled it's hard to follow.
The narrator should consider emphasizing consonant sounds even when using western dialect. A story is no good is the reader only "hears" half of it.
Understanding what was said and much better character development. I really didn't care if any of these characters lived or died. I didn't "know" any of them.
Save your credits for something else. This needs a rewrite and a re-record
I have a hearing loss but can listen to well narrated books. Too much background noise
I enjoyed this book but will have to listen to it again. The narrator speaks quickly with dialect - which is pleasing to the ear but, I'm hearing impaired and had to slow the narration down.
The book is well thought out and very interesting
I enjoyed this book - it's worth a credit definitely. The best part is the older lady's stories.
Yes, because I can listen to it over and over again.
Jane Darlington and probably Cal's grandmother. But I love Cal's mother too. They are all strong women who put their own sense of self first. I want to be one of SEP's characters in my next life!
Anna Fields, may she rest in peace, is still one of the top 3 narrators in the world of Audible Fiction. Her characterization and intonation is consistent and flawless. I will miss her forever.
When Cal's mom tells his dad how he made her feel when he didn't acknowledge her as his wife...
Any of SEP's books stand alone but they are all fabulous...this is in my top 2 or 3, no...top 2!
The cynical humor Sedaris brings to everyday life...
The Rooster! Sedaris' brother Paul is just hilarious as seen through the author's eyes.
His voice is perfect because it is him! The hint of sarcasm is fabulous.
The whole thing moved me to roll on the floor hugging my gut laughing
If you need a good belly laugh Sedaris is for you
I listened to this book twice in one week. Profound information in a simple format. Don't be put off by the title. The name "devil" is a label for the negative forces. This book is filled with ideas to help you become proactive and positive right now. Read it! Listen to it! Do Both I just purchased a print version but the narration is AWESOME. Love Phil Gigante
Top 25% - I have listened to over 500
Yes. She keeps getting better. Keep listening. She mas more surprising performances.
Bree's Dad. Close to my age
This is a perfect summer read. Lucy escapes the alter on the back of his motorcycle. All that togetherness leads to some steamy nights. Lucy is not ready to return to her "real" life and heads to a summer vacation community. There she meets new friends, all colorful characters fully developed by Ms. Phillips. But the crux of this novel is the heat between Panda and Lucy. Can the former first lady's daughter capture the heart of one damaged, former cop and soldier?
Definitely worth finding out for yourself.
Narration is good.
Having been a fan of Anna Fields, I was deeply saddened to learn of her death. Shannon Cochran has a tough act to follow but does an admirable job.
I love the characters and the depth of their feelings for each other. I sobbed afterwards. Every person deserves this kind of devotion, but it comes at a cost.
Manipulate, Betray, Dubplicity
So far it's Nick, but I'm not quite finished yet
Both Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne give tremendous performances. The characters are consistent in voice and come to life through these talented actors.
Is Every Marriage an Illusion?
I took a chance on this...not my usual authors and I cannot stop listening. It pulls you in and is a true page turner.
