I would highly recommend this audiobook. Wanda McCaddon did an excellent job giving a voice to each character in the book. I started the story all over again when it ended. I have never done that with an audiobook before. I didnt want to leave that world.
I liked how Katherine accepted what her circumstances were in life and learned to live with them no matter how difficult.
I liked Katherine and John. The story was about them so it wasn't hard to pick a favorite.
It was not a book I wanted to listen to in one sitting. The material was very heavy at times and I wanted to drag it out so it wouldn't end too soon. I don't think this is something you listen to for light reading.
This is a lovely work of historical fiction, well read and worth listening to. I highly recommend this audiobook for anyone who enjoys history and romance joined together.
Entertaining for what it is but not on my keeper shelf. A one time listen is enough.
Now that would spoil it for those who haven't read or listened yet so I will plead the fifth here. This book was the most adventurous of the three if that helps.
Not a fan of the narration of this book. Sorry to say...
Cover your eyes!
It would not make my top ten list, sadly.
I don't think there is any book like this that I can think of right now. It's definitely a one-of-a-kind!
I really wasn't a fan of this book in Audible form. I was hoping for so much more. It seemed campy and super cheesy and made me laugh when listening to it because I thought it sounded ridiculous. I rolled my eyes a lot!
Reading this particular book and listening to it are two different things. I liked it better in book form. The audible version was lacking for me.
I liked this series. I think a different narrator might have made it better. I don't think it was a good fit for the characters.
Jamie, sigh! He is funny, strong, sensitive, hard-headed, and always entertaining.
Claire is the main character so I would have to say her - but - Jamie steals the show every single time he appears on the scene.
The wedding day, and night...
This is a great book made even better by an outstanding narrator. Davina Porter does an outstanding job bringing so many characters to life in this series.
I'm not so sure I would listen again. I didn't think the narrator matched what the story needed. My first impression was jarring surprise. It took a while to get used to the way Christian's voice was depicted. Not a fan, sadly.
I like the story better in written form. Listening to it on Audible changed my views on it completely. Ana sounds like a complete moron when you hear the story. It's not Becca Battoe's fault, it's the content. Every sentence out of Ana's mouth is a silly question. "What's she doing here?" "Who's that?" "Christian loves me?" "Is that a car?" "Are we driving?" "How did I get in this bed?" "Where am I?" ... And on and on...for a smart girl she sure is dumb! It kind of wrecked it for me and made it a really silly book after listening to it.
Some were okay, some were fine, and Christian's voice, wasn't the best.
No pain, no gain!
This story is entertaining and not anything more which is what it was meant to be.
