Wow, such a good story, though some of the "naughty" talk was a bit eye-roll worthy. Still, I would have paid full price for this one.
Yes, because even though parts of the entire series broke my heart, I loved the way it all ends. It left me satisfied when it was over.
Yes, I would because it gives a fresh approach to the genre, by combining it with a post-apocalyptic world. I also thought it was well paced.
Some of the narrators in this production constantly mispronounced words, and it made it hard to stay in the story. A couple of examples are when some of the narrators pronounce the name "Kiev" as "Keeve", or "excruciating" as "excrooseeayting". Thankfully not all of the narrators are illiterate.
I have really enjoyed these stories, despite a couple of the narrators. I would definitely recommend giving these a listen. I have a feeling that not everyone is as picky as I am when it comes to pronunciation.
Yes, the story is good, and most of the narrators in this series are great.
Learn how to pronounce things correctly, such as Borys'. Ughhh, I kept getting pulled out of the story every time a narrator (not all) said Borys, when they should have said Borys'. It's as though they didn't understand what to do with the s'. So rather than read, "Boris' hands," they would read, "Borys hands." Petty? Maybe, but it was very often, and very annoying each time. Other than that...great narration.
If I could play editor, I would have eliminated all of the MANY unnecessary words. I mean, does she really have to write: "Honestly...," I said honestly. I couldn't get past all of the many instances where she tries to justify or explain something she just wrote as if my mind was to simple to understand what she'd just written.
This author had a good idea and the story had so much potential, but she would often write as if she was writing for teens or younger. This is definitely not for the reader that is expecting well written sentences or believable/clever dialogue.
This guy has got to be one of my favorite writers of all time. I remember getting the "podiobook" version of this years ago and falling in love with the story and the voice! If you don't mind the graphic violence, and love good science fiction, you'll love this book as well as most of his others!
The narrator's voice was extremely distracting in the way she elongated the word at the end of every sentence in a strange breathy way.
She sounded constipated.
I loved the story! The story itself kept me listening.
I didn't like the bdsm turn that this book took. The dialogue was ridiculous, and didn't seem well thought out. People, JUST DON'T TALK LIKE THAT!
That being "said," the overall story is good, it just would have been made so much stronger without the poor dialogue, and ridiculous sex scenes.
This was my least favorite, and I don't think I've ever rolled my eyes as much as I did while listening to The Professional: Part 2
Less ridiculous sex scenes, and FAR LESS ridiculous dialogue. It pulled you out of the story, and that's never a good thing.
I love Kresley Cole's writing style, and so far, this book is pretty good, I can't wait to hear part two!
A different narrator. She sounded like she was pinching her nose while trying to use the restroom. It was distracting.
A completely different narrator
I'm very easy to please when it comes to narration, but I couldn't take the sound of her voice for more than 25 minutes. She constantly mispronounced the names and some common words. It was almost painful. I've purchased the kindle version and will be requesting a refund on the audio version. Such a disappointment.
