Seriously, Davina Porter whistles on her S's and after a while it's like someone stabbing you in the eardrum. I listened to her narrate the Outlander series and don't remember this being a problem, but this recording is almost unbearable with headphones on. Otherwise I think she was ok, and the story was good... but not as good as the earlier books in this series.
I really don't get what all the hype is about. This is just a boring version of Twilight except that Edward is human and a perv with major issues, Bella is even more annoying and whiny than ever, and they have a lot of sex. I forced myself to finish the book in the hopes that it would get better, but it doesn't. Don't get me wrong, I loved Twilight as much as the next girl... But don't feed me a watered down version with a bunch of sex thrown in and call it lunch. Also, I think everyone is being really hard on the narration. It certainly isn't the best I've ever heard but it really wasn't as bad as most people are making it out to be.
Wow, the new narrator John Lee is REALLY terrible. I can't even pay attention to the story because all I can do is wonder who the heck hired this guy? Think overly dramatic and pompous Shatner reading a cheesy romance novel. It's that bad. Two hours into the book and I just can't take it anymore.
The narrator did an amazing job with this incredibly boring piece of literature. I made it through about 12 hours and had to call it quits. The story jumps around too much and is overly repetitive. I could also do without the hours of waxing poetic on the philosophies of life.
This stroy completely immerses you in it's world, and you'll love every minute of it. I almost have to stop myself from slipping into a southern accent now :)
