Yes. I have enjoyed the house of night series and find Caitlin Davies to be a skilled narrator.
She seems to have one voice and one accent for people of color. Martin sounds exactly like Kramisha. And the French was not believable at all. I found it distracting. Her voice for Linobia and the general narration was fine. I don't think I could've listened to the whole thing if it were longer.
Eh. It was cheap enough and I liked having some background on the characters from H.o.N.
People did not seem genuine, but instead based on stereotypes. Not awful but could've been better.
Read the book. I had been counting down the days until this audiobook but I expected it would be read by Emily Shaffer alone like the other books. It was hard to listen to so I'm just reading the book.
I love Sydney and Adrian.
The guy who reads for Adrian's POV reads it very flat. Very flat. And his woman's voice for Sydney is AWFUL! Emily always gave Adrian a slightly English voice and he had more energy. I can't listen to this guy. I can't buy any emotion from him.
To read the book version and really appreciate male narrators who are dramatic.
Yes, because it was fun and had romantic without cheese.
I can't pick out one thing. It was just good if you like the genre and want to listen to an enjoyable story.
I like her voices for the characters. If I did read one of the books, I think I'd imagine those voices for the characters.
There were a couple of "awww!" and "yay!"s
This book is toward the top. After listening to the previous books, I like how the characters are evolving.
It had everything I like in a book. I laughed at parts, I cried at parts. There was intense action. Character development. It made me not only like the book but appreciate the series more and look forward to where it was going.
In addition, Kim Harrison is very good about making you feel present in the scene and like you are having a conversation with the characters. The narration between dialog is exciting and full of personality.
She's an excellent narrator. I like the variance in voices. Plus she acts them out and does an excellent job putting emotion and action in the whole story, not just dialog. I think you wouldn't get as much of Rachel's personality by just reading it. I can't put my finger on it, but I'm glad I listened to it rather than read it.
oh yeah. I listen in the car on my commute and was actually hoping for traffic.
The only down side is I wish there was less
The first half of the book had so much cheese, Velveeta was jealous. I'm glad I stuck it out, though b/c the second half was awesome. I thought the narrator did a great job. I think the Casts are improving in their writing skills, save the very Harlequin Romance beginning. Plus, I like the return of a certain character whom I thought was poorly judged. Over all, it was really enjoyable and I can't wait til Nov!
I have enjoyed the series so far because of the story, not as much the stellar writing. I won't belabor the point about the narrators although I agree w/ the previous reviews. The story did drag and could've been a chapter or two in another book. My biggest complaint is that when you want to get rid of a character by making him/her a jerk, you have to do more than just have all the characters all of a sudden after 4 other books to the contrary just up and start saying they are a jerk. And since when is it possessive to be mad at your significant other is kissing, and sleeping with other people?
