No. This was $4.95 special purchase, but I should have paid attention to the narrator. Brenda Jackson is ok, but the narrator, Madison Vaughn, is so awful, it's painful to listen to her. I speeded up the pace, which helped, but the delivery is too stagey, with too many breathey, emotional pauses. Very irritating.
Yes, if the narrator was different.
A totally different narrator.
I should have paid more attention. This was one of those $4.95 specials. Not a good choice for me, it's young adult fiction.
Although I have always admired Arte Johnson, and would love to listen to more books he's narrated, I am a firm fan of George Wilson and I've always thought he is the best narrator for any Hiaasen book. His dry reading, pace, and timing cannot be matched.
Maybe. The story, what I could stand to listen to, was cute.
Better inflection. The narrator seemed like she was trying to make this a comedy.
I greatly disliked the narrator. I have listened to the previous books in this series and enjoyed them, and got this one without looking at the reviews and listening to a sample. Bad, bad decision. The narrator made everyone sound like whiny old ladies, even the male characters.
Many times I have listened to a book that wasn't that great a story just because the narration would so good. In this case, I didn't get beyond the first chapter before I stopped. I'll have to get this in ebook form and read it now. A waste of a good credit.
yes, great narration, good story line, quick pace
I have listened to all the Ceepak books, and I really enjoy the narrator, and the storylines, Extremely entertaining.
Once is enough. Although I enjoyed the story, and there were some LOL moments, the narrator just doesn't have the magic.
I would try another book from Alexander, but never from Cardy.
I've liked other books by this author.
NO, NO, NO!
I've found the only way to listen to this particular narrator is to speed up the playback, from normal to faster. This brings the narrator up to a normal speed. Otherwise, the pace is too measured, too slow, and too excruciating to listen to.
I stupidly purchased two of these 'quickies'; big mistake. Both of the storie I listened to were definitely male fantasies.
