    Damien Knight, the earl of Winterley, is proud, aloof, and tormented by memories of war. Though living in seclusion, he is named guardian to a fellow officer's ward. Instead of the young homeless waif he was expecting, however, Miranda FitzHubert is a stunning, passionate beauty who invades his sanctuary and forces him back into society. Struggling to maintain honor and self-control, Damien now faces an even greater threat: desire.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the book, not the audiobook. The story is good, but the narrator has ruined it with her poor pronunciation, and her shocking depiction of the hero's voice. It becomes a huge challenge to have any respect for the hero, who is depicted as a strong, iron man, when his voice is portrayed as a sleepy, 90 year old breathless woman.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Probably by simply having a different narrator. Ms. Greene does not have either the vocabulary nor the voice for this job.

    Would you consider the audio edition of We Need to Talk About Kevin to be better than the print version?

    Yes, it was even better than the movie.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Kevin did his nuh-nuh-na-na-nuh response to his mother. Ms King portrayed it so perfectly, capturing the arrogance, spite and disdain in the child's voice in a way that chilled the listener.
