Biran Emerson's reading drove me a little crazy, it's not his voice, it's the way his tone fluctuates because he's
Only if it's edited.
It's a brain candy book, which I like but the reader makes her sound like she's 60...which would be okay if she was 60, not in her early 30s
Yes, but just to "see" Abby... I have no idea who she is
I can't figure out why people like this book so much. The story was meh, the characters were meh... I just don't get it. I finished it but I think that was just because I was trying to figure out what the hype was about. I think I might prefer more character development. With the story switching around as it did I really didn't care much about any of the characters and their stories. The narrator was good though.
He did a good job keeping the characters distinct and he seemed to have read the book before he narrated it (pet peeve of mine when they don't)
not so much
I listen to audio books on the way to work so eh, it doesn't matter
COMPLETELY!!! Narrator has a speach pattern I found VERY distracting and I haven't a clue in the world why most of the characters sound like they just flew in from the Bronx. Anatoly is supposed to be "hot" but the narrator's bad Russian accent made him creepy. And on top of that, to me every single woman in the book sounded like a drag queen...from Brighton Beach.
The book is fine although the characters are not bright (at all. Let's not call this a mystery) but the narrator killed any prospect of another Kyra Davis book in my library.
It was hard to get past the narrator. Mispronounced words? Really? You're getting paid for this and you can't look up a word? Shame on you!
Yes, with a different reader
Part of the blame should go to Chloe Neill...How can you allow an audio book to be released if you haven't listened to it...and I CAN'T believe she did.
I have to admit I have a BIG problem with bad narrators... I think she's from New Jersey and that accent kept sneaking into her southern characters voices. Ick, not good. AND, another pet peeve of mine, she mispronounced a lot of words. The story is cotton candy, fluff and took me back to my time at the Banks but I will NOT buy anything read by this narrator again... Bad choice for me...
This book is absolutely ridiculous and I absolutely loved it...as did my two co-workers to whom I leant it. Suspend disbelief and dive in, it's funny and wonderful
The book itself is reasonably good but I had a bad time with a Dennis Farina knock-off reading a book about a good-looking, outdoorsy Colorado guy. If there was a way to define it w/in Audible.com, I would request to NEVER view any books read by Dick Hill. Apologies to Stephen White.
Not a horrible book but not what it's supposed to be. It truly is a book pushing vegan-ism. The first couple of chapters are somewhat funny and maybe a little convincing BUT when they got to the slaughter houses I bristled, said to my CD player "Sorry sweetie, 60 Minutes already covered this" and ejected the book...and rejected the remaining CD's.
I think the authors might have been a little more effective without the overkill on animal killing.
She's got a great voice and it's a good story. Really easy to listen to. (I can't imagine why she didn't narrate her other book on Audible)
